GE Buy More Save More Rebate

Offer Expires: 6/1/2020 to 7/31/2020 Must be postmarked by: 9/30/2020

Enjoy exclusive rebate savings with purchase of qualifying GE appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 9/30/2020.

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.

I can't believe I didn't buy this dryer before. It's a quick working dryer and is super smart. I don't have to worry about the clothes being wet it just knows! I also like having it linked to my phone. It tells me when it is done so I can make sure I don't leave them in the dryer!

Enjoy Laundry

Jepsen 6/2/2020

I have used my new washer and dryer (same models) and have enjoyed them! The inky problem I have is using the app. I can't seem to do the laundry with the app. That's my only complaint for both. The good news about the app is it has helped me stay on track by notifying me when laundry is done. This alone has sped up my time doing laundry. It doesn't take all day now because I don't forget about laundry!

Debslulu 6/2/2020

Have to get used to extra features and intuitiveness of the dryer. It out-thinks me and at times, is confusing. Performs well if it would do what you tell it to do rather than deciding for you. I'm sure it's me not having yet read directions and will be great when I figure everything out.

It dries clothes?

atruebond 5/26/2020

Its new so it dries my clothes faster than what my now busted dryer did before it went out. Natural right? I would say that I do not care for the lint trap. Item feels cheap and I suspect I will need to replace it just past warranty. Unit has WFI built in but is the most annoying thing. DING. Your clothes are 5 mins from being done. DING Your clothes are done. DING. Your clothes have been sitting for 5 minutes done. DING. Your clothes have sat for 30 minutes. Very annoying.

Dries quickly!

Huffdryer22 5/26/2020

This dries so quickly and efficiently! I love it! The lint catcher is a bit clumsy to empty. The dryer is quiet and the controls are easy. We downloaded the app and we get notifications when the clothes are done. And can remotely tell it to tumble care to eliminate wrinkles if we are not able to immediately take the clothes out. We did change the door hinge side (from a right-wing to a left-hinge). You need special universal swivel socket and ratchet to disassemble the whole hinge. It was not easy and I had my husband help. Either way, this was a great buy.

Hayley718 5/26/2020

We love our set. Haven't had any issues, aside from a little difficulty leveling the feet (but it was more to do with what tools we had available, not the machines fault). Runs great, if not a little long of a cycle. Things come out feeling clean. Looks sleek and modern. The WiFi text alerts was fun, and something we hadn't realized the set did before it was delivered!

mominator 5/21/2020

Replaced a 5 year old Samsung with this. So far it works so much better. I didn't give it 5 stars, because I don't like that the end cycle sound is too low, and I have it on the loudest setting available. Other than that, it seems like a good dryer.

We have had our new washer & dryer set for a month now and could not be happier. We love the quick dry setting. I just wish you could hear the bell go off when the machine is done, even with the volume all the way you can not hear it. I had the app loaded onto my phone and had to remove it, as it drove me crazy with sending me alerts every few minutes.

jsmith81 5/10/2020

This dryer replaced a much more expensive dryer from another manufacturer and so far we are not disappointed with it. The only thing I miss from my previous dryer is the steam options, so I might have opted for the more expensive model of this. Dry times are quick and wifi connectivity is awesome.
