Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Clunky Door

FAHW Replacement 4/30/2021

Would give dryer a five star rating, except for the door itself. It closes like an old farm gate. Meaning, to make it a smooth close, we have to pick up the door slightly. This should not need to be done on a brand new dryer. I assume it is a design flaw. This dryer was a replacement product from a home warranty company and not of our choosing.

Homme Trist 4/29/2021

Since the machine is new, it will take a while to fully comprehend the gradations of heat necessary for optimum drying and no more. The named settings are no help really. This is true for ALL machines.

Great until it wasn't

Mg1498 4/28/2021

It was great the first week and then it suddenly stopped running week 2. It would make a clicking noise every 10 sec. When it was off, when you turn it on and tried to start it, it would click and turn off. Not happy that I have to have it serviced since it's brand new but GE was easy to talk to and are sending someone to work on it next week. 3 stars because it has been a great washer and dryer while it worked and the app is very convenient

We replaced an older and underperforming other brand and immediately were impressed by the GE design, quality and functionality. The early results for both the dryer and washer are very good. The set offered the best mix of features, quality, and price for the best value.

Dry Your Clothes Smooth, Not Hot!

jamescleansitall 4/25/2021

GE has lost a sizable portion of the Washer/Dryer market... not anymore! GE has gone "all-out" to produce and build a larger Dryer with high-end features for the same price of the "low-end" models from today's competitors! Strong, Quality-Built and QUIET, my GE Dryer is remarkable! Every time I remove clothes from the dryer, they're smoother and cooler in almost HALF the time than our previous dryer! Less drying time and less electricity being used = saving money! The Dryer stands almost 2" taller than most other makes - remember that when purchasing (measure twice then, install once). ONE NEGATIVE - the End-Of-Cycle sound is NOT loud at all, GE are you listening?? How about an UPGRADE for that alert-chime?!!

EAOmaha 4/24/2021

We love the dryer but we had one issue. The door locking mechanism was not installed properly and because of that broke within the first 12 drying. Because the unit is so new parts are back ordered for weeks. Also this is a 2 part mechanism, the lock and the housing that it fits in. Both broke. Lock is only $12 but the housing is over $50. Like the unit but initial quality was not great. Hopefully it will get better.

Faulty LED Panel

Gat92 4/23/2021

Dryer looks fine and can perform standard functions well, but the LED panel does not function. We bought this dryer in mid-February and waited 6 weeks for delivery of a faulty product. Had service out to look at it and now it will be another 8-10 weeks for the replacement panel to arrive. Not happy to have to wait almost 4 months from order until we have a properly functioning dryer.

Chrisr09 4/21/2021

My last dryer was horrible, and it wasn't cheap. I had to run it two cycles to get dry clothes because they never tumbled in the dryer. They spun around like the spin cycle of a washer. My clothes were always wrinkled. After 4 years, I'd had it. I had recently replaced my washer with the GE front loader, so decided to treat myself to the matching dryer. How nice to get my clothes dry in 40 minutes and they come out not wrinkled. I'm thrilled with this purchase.

I am so excited to own this dryer! It dries my king size comforter the first time. Sometimes I add a few more minutes just incase. This dries our clothes in no time! This is by far the best dryer I have owned. It is very large inside so I can dry a lot at once.

GE Dryer

NanLisa63 4/21/2021

Overall the dryer is great. Heats up wonderful and looks good but isn't as user friendly as could be. Preset features are pretty set and can't be adjusted or at least I can't figure out how to by reading the manual. It's done by the weight/dampness of clothes and shuts off regardless of how long you'd like it to run.

KellyF17 4/21/2021

We are so pleased with our purchase! we have been saved a couple times already by the vent feature on the washer. Leaving the house after putting a load in the washer and coming back home to the clothes smelling clean and ready to be tossed in the dryer. We also feel like the dryer completes the job a lot quicker than our last dryer. Very happy with our purchase and you will be too!

Elizabethnord 4/20/2021

Upgraded from a dryer that took 4 70 minute cycles to actually dry towels.. this thing is AMAZING. Love it and love the reminders on my phone. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is because it sometimes senses that the clothes are dry even though a few items are still damp and if you start it again it will only go for 5 minutes because it still thinks it's dry. but the majority of the time, it dries everything evenly and great!

Does a great job of drying. Large loads too!

Michintx 4/20/2021

This dryer has good controls - with lots of options - and does a great job of drying. It even dries large loads well. I took off one star for noise level (my previous dryer was much quieter), and the beeping sound when drying is complete in practically non-existent. So I have to keep walking into the laundry room to see if the cycle has completed. But overall I'm very happy with this product.

Very attractive

Joan in MS 4/20/2021

We recently replaced our 15 year old dryer with a new GE. It was a little difficult getting used to the new features and settings but after a little experimentation, we have found the best settings for each load. This dryer takes less time to dry the clothes, including Levis, and I rarely have to iron anything. The only negative I can say about this unit is that the end of cycle alarm is not loud enough to even be heard in the next room . Not very convenient if I am not quite near. The sound level adjust up from a whisper to a gently squeak. All in all, we are very satisfied with our purchase and the personal service provided by the store where purchased.
