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.

Great Everything But...

War Girl 5/13/2021

I Love my Dryer! BUT, I HATE cleaning the Lint Tray. Went to Lowe's they suggested I use a Washer Brush on it. The Lint Tray DOES a great job, but when you open it up it's big and awkward. Other than that. Love it! Love the WiFi!

Great washer and dryer...or so I thought.

Npharis 5/12/2021

The machines are beautiful in the sapphire blue. The washing machine is great. No issues. They dryer has died on me twice in the 2 months I've had it. Unplugging it has not worked. I've had to flip the circuit breaker switch to get it to turn back on even though it wasn't tripped to begin with. Not sure what's going on, but it won't complete a whole load before dying. I'm very disappointed, because everything else is great. Until things get resolved, the review will stand at 2 stars.

MIJK 5/7/2021

Love the color! It's a large capacity dryer. It has enough room to handle a queen size comforter with room to spare. I'm sure it could handle a king size with no problems. There are many settings to choose from for every type of fabric.

Cheap part

Jillybenilli 5/6/2021

After we installed this dryer the front door strike immediately broke so the door won't close. We called to order a new part and it is back ordered for a month! I have to lean something heavy against the door to keep it shut so I can dry my laundry. Otherwise the dryer works great so my complaint is more for the customer service and a cheap plastic door strike.

Misha26 5/4/2021

The GE dryer is a perfect pair to the washer. It has all the features I love such as delicate cycle, towels, bulky bedding, and mixed load. You can add time and adjust the heat level as needed. It is a gorgeous blue and has a sleek style. Most of all I love the extra large capacity.

Nurse Miller 5/2/2021

Drying times are great, only exception is if an article of clothing is thick (think men's athletic socks) the sensor sees them as dry, but they aren't. Had to change setting to override sensor to get the socks dry. Otherwise, happy with my new product.

It's a little early to give a full review on the product but I do like what I see so far. The lint trap is a different design than my prior GE dryer and I like the newer design. much better at catching the lint and other loose small debris in the dryer.

K8wlt 4/29/2021

I used to hate doing laundry but now I love thanks to my new washer and dryer. I did quite a bit of research and decided this was the one and I am so glad I choose it. I love that there is an app with notifications so you know when the cycles are complete. I love all the washing cycle options and the best part is that it automatically dispenses the detergent for you! And I absolutely love that it links up to the dryer so you don't even have to choose how long to dry it.

Kylie08 4/18/2021

The last time I purchased a washer and dryer was about 10 years ago. So much has changed since my basic purchase. This is the fanciest thing I have ever seen. I love that it has so many different settings! The steam feature is amazing. I used to keep a spray bottle next to my dryer so I could spritz the item and put it back in the dryer to get the wrinkles out. The steam feature basically does all this for you for EVERY item in the dryer. I also love that I can control it from my app. It lets you know when the load is about to finish and you can also extend the tumble to prevent wrinkles. I absolutely love this dryer!

Excellent Dryer

RoboDad 4/18/2021

This is possibly the best dryer we have ever owned (and we've owned a few!). The range of settings is amazing, and the ability to adjust each setting in every mode makes it easy to get perfectly dried clothes every time without risking any damage to even the most delicate items. The steam options are also very nice, and the "Washer Link" mode is brilliant. The washer tells the dryer which wash mode was used, and the weight of the clotehs that were washed, so the dryer can automatically pick the optimum settings (which can still be adjusted to my desired settings).
