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.

BWinSC 10/10/2020

Really like the drier so far, only a few weeks in so these rating requests should really come after a year of ownership. Only complaint so far is the lint device. Wife feels like she's gonna break it each time she tries to open it up.

Works great so far

Momofboth 10/10/2020

We've had this dryer for a few weeks now and I couldn't be happier. My old dryer was a whirlpool and we got it back in 2008. The lint trap wasn't catching the lint anymore so we decided to upgrade our dryer since our family is double the size now. I love all of the different features and my favorite part is the fully enclosed lint trap. You have to open it up to clean it meaning there is a very low chance that any lint will get down into the dryer vent. There is also an obstruction detector in case the vent get clogged, the dryer will stop, which is a huge bonus for us!

Purchases due to pedestals

Danene 1 10/9/2020

I purchased the GE appliance due to the fact that they had the pedestals for GE on sale so I started looking at GE's. Supposedly the pedestals went with this particular GE appliance so I purchased the washer and dryer and I got the pedestals for a much better price well they get to my house to put all together and they are the wrong pedestals. So I have a GE washer and dryer which are working just fine but the pedestals went back because I didn't want to pay the big price for them.

I have been using this dryer only about a month and am so impressed. The inner barrel is huge, it dries clothes quickly and does not tangle the clothing when drying. The light inside the dryer drum is SO NICE! You can actually see your items inside when uploading/unloading. It was a nice surprise.

NotHappyShopper 10/4/2020

It was in stock, delivered within a week. The motor made a horrible knocking noise from day 1. The repairman replaced the motor although I feel that GE/Home Depot should have replaced the dryer. If you bought a new car with a bad motor I think you'd want the car replaced!

Ruby86 9/24/2020

This is a typical dryer that has all the options you'd expect. The lint filter is more like a basket so less lint and debris has a chance of getting past it, but it's a bit trickier to clean than what I'm used to.

The lint trap is my nemesis

Knics2 9/21/2020

I was really excited about this dryer and really wanted to love it. It's intuitive, easy to use and has a nice, large capacity. The lint trap has given me issues right out of the gate however. I noticed that about 1/3 of the lint from each load never makes it in to the trap. It gets caught around the door and at the top of the trap. We just moved in to our house and had to have the floors fixed so we started with a nice, clean space and I'm determined to keep it that way for as long as possible so I've thoroughly cleaned the lint trap and wiped down the inside of the dryer after every use. We've really only used it maybe 10 times and I've now hit the point where I don't even want to use it because it's such a hassle to clean all the lint off the door and way from the trap before I can even clean the trap itself. Also, in trying to get it clean today, realized that it doesn't even snap securely closed anymore and 3 weeks in to owning it, I'm terrified it's going to break. I wish I had taken pictures before I cleaned everything out and babied the lint trap back in to place.
