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.

MAGPSU1987 2/17/2021

All the custom settings work beautifully. It is MUCH more efficient than the dryer it replaced. And it's pretty darn cool that it texts me when my clothes are dry. Capacity is a big bonus - able to dry large blankets with ease.

ShelbyDS 2/15/2021

We have been extremely please with our washer/dryer purchase. I'm a girl so I go for looks first, of course, and this washer/dryer is very stylish looking. It looks beautiful in our laundry room. It has not disappointed in functionality and features either. SO far I haven't found anything that I don't absolutely love.

MRFfromPA 2/15/2021

This is our third front loading laundry set. First GE. So far it's been great. Large capacity and extremely fast drying. I think it has to do with the volume of air it can handle. Large surface area on the lint filter. Never is completely covered with lint no matter what the load is.

I have had the dryer for two months so I can't speak to the reliability of the dryer but I can speak to the performance. This dryer is awesome! I can finally dry a load of towels in one cycle. My bedding dries beautifully. The design of the lint trap is by far the best design I have ever seen.

Fudds87 2/6/2021

This has a great capacity and plenty of options to get what you want. The only thing that bothers me is the sensitivity of the start/pause button. Sometimes I accidentally go to start a load and it pushes twice to put it on pause.

Large

Iain57 2/5/2021

Large capacity. Lots of different functions that cover all the different fabrics. Most front loads leave water in bottom that will start to smell, this machine has a dry cycle and an antibacterial front seal that stops that. One of the few, of the many I looked at, that has that. This machine has a large detergent tank that will wash several loads before refill and meters the detergent according to the size of the load. So far it has exceeded my expectations.

It Dries!

Harris18 2/4/2021

Our old dryer, we had to run a dry cycle twice to get it to actually dry the clothes. In the summer our old dryer always filled with condensation. Super annoying and not efficient. This dryer is amazing. It dries faster than our old dryer and we dont need to run 2 dry cycles. the blue sapphire is amazing. We got the matching washer too. We love them both and do not know what took us so long to get a product like this.

SandyMac6614 1/29/2021

I absolutely love my new dryer! The one I had was around 25 years old and it took all day just to dry one load. My new dryer dries a load in just 15 minutes! Of course that's a very small load, but still... It has a lot of options on it, but it's really easy to use. I would highly recommend this dryer.
