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.

Not pleased with the Lint compartment

Reanna G 4/30/2021

Overall the dryer is great, besides the Lint compartment. Everytime I open the door when a load gets done there is lint that falls out the door onto the floor.

Kim Sp 4/28/2021

zoinkscoob 4/25/2021

I love this dryer! It is very roomy and though its strange that it lights up when you open it its actually been pretty useful. GE is a brand i know and trust and this was the most affordable quality dryer I was able to find on the market. It really says someone when the person youre buying a product from owns and recommends the product you're purchasing. Though this may just be the materials or load size it is bothersome that it sometimes takes two or more 60 minute cycles to fully dry a load.

Softens clothes, efficient, quiet

Triplesteep 4/24/2021

Our dryer came with the new construction we purchased. This particular nationwide builder only invests in the best products and to see this machine work, you see why: It is quiet and efficient, easy to use and beautiful to look at. When I was sending out pictures of our new home, family and friends ooh and ahh over the washer and dryer, not a normal thing for people to comment on, but you understand why: they are very sleek and smartly designed. Not that looks are everything, but it is a extra amenity to the essential quality of how well it works.

Love this dryer!

DonnaB428 4/23/2021

Seven years ago I bought a Hotpoint washer and dryer. Within the first year I was wishing I had gone with something different, but at the time I thought all I needed was basic. After replacing the selection knob 6 times I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade. I am so happy with this GE dryer. I have named her Greta because I say she growls when the buzzer goes off. I am pretty sure the buzzer on my former dryer stopped working within the first year and it is wonderful to hear Greta growl and let me know my clothes are ready! We will be going back to get the matching washer soon.
