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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Submitted by 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.

Great dryer

Submitted by 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.

Submitted by Rhee - 11/17/2020

Great for pillows, blankets and mattress pads. Like how effective the lint trap collects lint and is easy to clean. Wish the end of cycle alarm was louder. I have it on highest sound level, but cannot hear it in the next room.

Worked well

Submitted by 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.

Great dryer. Works well. Dries fast. My only issue is that the manual says you can adjust temp/time for preset options, but it doesn't let you. But I just choose the setting closest to what I want. The Wifi feature was easy to set up and helpful.

Submitted by Zzz99 - 11/12/2020

I opted for this version without the steam. Never going to use that feature and why not save money. I stacked this with the high end washer. Looks great. No issues with the lint trap that others report. It hasn't broken in 3 months of use. I also find it easy to clean and not sure why people are having issues with it, It's a lint collector and it works fine and It Works great. Clothes are dry every time. Even Karen will like this dryer.
