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.

Love My GE Dryer

Jenna89 11/27/2020

In the past I have always purchased Whirlpool dryers but after online research I decided to buy this GE dryer. I am so pleased with my purchase! This dryer is quiet and ultra efficient at drying with multiple drying options.

It's easy to load and empty with the pedestal. Opening the lint trap is a bit tricky, though.

SidraG 11/18/2020

Loving my dryer, it dries quickly & efficiently. The only thing I don't really care for is the lint filter. I find it inconvenient to get all the lint out without laying it on the washer or dryer & then having dust that I have to wipe off. Also, there is usually lint that did not get caught in the filter & can hang on the door or above the filter.

Adrivaz 11/17/2020

So far I'm really loving my new GE dryer. I love how there's no extra lint on my clothes and it captures the lint, dirt, and hair really really well! It filters out perfectly.. I also love how it dries my clothes. A plus is that I can connect the appliance to my phone and it lets me know when it's ready.

jln515 11/16/2020

We only used this dryer for a few days because we returned the set due to a faulty washer. However, I thought it worked great and I loved the large capacity. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the latch for the door is plastic and it broke during delivery and needed to be replaced.
