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.

Great features great functionality

5/23/2018

We just bought our first house and I did quite a bit of research before buying this washer. I decided to avoid Samsung and LG due to the horror stories I read about them leaking and the long wait times for repair. This GE model is great and we couldnt be happier. It has enough wash cycles to meet our needs and it gets the clothes really clean. Not to mention that the price was super reasonable in comparison with similar models. We did laugh a bit when setting the wash cycles because it sounds like a video game think Mario Bros when hes collecting coins. So happy I did research before buying. Now we just need to buy shelving for on top

Meh

5/23/2018

I had really high hopes after reading the great reviews for this machine. I am less than impressed however. It definitely doesnt fit a queen comforter without stuffing it in the machine and then it doesnt wash it well. The spin seems to do a good job wringing out water after the wash but it is definitely not very quiet. The finished chimes are nice. It also sticks out much further than my older traditional machine which takes up more of the walk area in an already small washroom. Not sure its staying or not yet. :/

A washer that makes laundry fun.

5/5/2018

This washer does it all and has it all. I actually enjoy doing the laundry now. I love that I can wash my bed pillows and even felt comfortable tossing in my heated electric blanket without worry. I love that I can customize each load to my specific needs. I can choose a delicate load with hot or very hot heavy or light soil and choose a light spin or heavy. I now go around my house looking for stuff to wash.

4/30/2018

Ive only had the machine for a few days so have no idea how it will hold up. Cleans well but no better than any other washer. Takes 55 minutes to do a normal load which seems excessive. Spins really well so the clothes are only damp when you remove them. I might use some of the bells and whistles over time but for now Im just glad to have clean clothes.

Wonderful washer

4/15/2018

I went back and forth between replacing my 20-year-old front loader with this machine or Electrolux. After reading the reviews comparing machines and our own positive experiences with GE products this was our choice. So glad I went with this machine. I caught up on all my laundry and was amazed at the intuitive controls the way my laundry washed and how little water was used as well as spun almost dry. I had a king comforter with two month old stains from muddy dog paws that I hadnt been able to remove. Sparkling clean comforter no stains using steam. Delicates towels all beautifully done. Great job GE

Less than a week old but good so far

4/10/2018

4/10/18 Just replaced my 18-yr old W/D stacked units with this GE washer and matching dryer also stacked. My old W/D measured 69 1/2 tall x 27 wide. The new GE units front load are about 80 tall stacked so significantly taller. Be sure you measure the space that your new unit will fit in. We had to take down some custom cabinets built around our old units so that the installation guys could manage the connections and maneuver the units into place. Im 55 and have to stand on a stool to really be able to see the instrument panel information on the dryer. Once Im used to the different settings Im sure that wont be an issue. Today is only the 3rd day after the installation and I have washed 3 different loads: sheets towels and delicates. I dont know yet if I can wash a queen or king bedspread comforter but there is significantly more drum space in the GE units. What used to be a full load in my old washer is about a 1/2 load in the GE. The time displayed for the wash and dry cycles is helpful. I didnt have a digital display on my old units but it seems to me like these cycles run longer. The advertisement does say that the time saver allows you to clean a full load in 37 minutes so I will need to check that out. I suggest ordering your W/D at the store to be sure that your sales person orders all the extra parts you need especially for the stacked W/D like the stacking kit dryer cordfill hose dryer duct and washer hoses. I dont usually buy an appliance warranty but I did get the 5-year warranty on both since the cost of the warranty was cheaper than the cost of having my old washer serviced the last time. There are a lot of bells and whistles on these new models and the warranty will at least give me 5 years piece of mind. The W/D set has smoky dark domed glass on the doors so its hard to see whats inside and how it is washing but the look is sleek. Its not as quiet as I expected from other reviews. Its only day 4 of ownership but so far so good. If there is an opportunity to update my review in the future I will do so.
