GE Buy More Save More Rebate

Offer Expires: 8/1/2020 to 9/30/2020 Must be postmarked by: 11/30/2020

Enjoy exclusive rebate savings with purchase of qualifying GE appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 11/30/2020.

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.

Joe bhuio 9/18/2020

By far...the BEST dryer I have ever owned! Quite...efficient and pleasing to the eye! DEFINITELY purchase the pedestal as it makes a world of difference not having to bend over and the storage provided is really large! Worth every dollar spent!

Sleek & great capacity

Bcinfla 9/5/2020

Wow what an upgrade from our old washer and dryer. First, they are so sleek in navy with all the fancy digital buttons and extra options. Next, the capacity is so much bigger than what I had. I was having to leave some items in the laundry basket because I was running out of room. But with this new set everything can fit & then some more. Lastly, this is quieter than my old set. I Have had to play around with it some to figure out what settings work best for each load type; the first load was still damp at the end of the cycle. So happy about my new upgrade!

Good features but.....

kenposempai 8/30/2020

We purchase this and the stacking brackets when our old units (16 years old) began to have numerous issues. So far, the features seem to work well but after the second use the dryer lint trap (plastic) catch broke off. Wasn't dropped or forced open. Just cheap molding. Hoping this isn't a sign of things to come at this price point! :( We have the warranty so I guess I need to request a new one. Just annoying in a new appliance and this is the MOST expensive set I've ever purchased.

Good dryer

CEDE 8/27/2020

For the most part this dryer has been very good. The only issue, thus the 4 star rating, is that when set on towels, it sometimes leaves the towels soaked. In fact, they appear wetter than when put in. This may be user error, based on all settings, but we haven't figured it out yet. Otherwise, we are very pleased with the dryer.

FinallyHomeinNM 8/27/2020

We have had this dryer just under a month now and have loved every second of it. I honestly thought I would never use the Washer Link feature but it turns out that is the most efficient way to do laundry. It knows exactly how long to dry the clothes and they don't come out damp at all. They come out completely dry. I did a full wash and dry cycle of 1 of my children's load of clothes (which was small but still) in under an hour. This is the best washer and dryer set I've ever had the pleasure of using. And its pretty too.

Absolutely wonderful!!!

ADHP 8/25/2020

I can not say enough good things about this particular washer.. One of my favorite features is the automatic detergent dispenser and being able to toss the clothes into the washer and not having to measuring out how much detergent will be needed for each load.. instead I now can fill my dispenser up with 50 ounces of detergent and the washer will do the rest for me. Overall best washer I have ever owned; user friendly as well. The color of the washer is absolutely gorgeous and pictures do not do it justice. I ordered mine without going into the store and was a little skeptical with blue being the only color of choice but I have come to love it more than I would have any other color.

This dryer is amazing

Longwood mom 8/23/2020

I absolutely love the size and performance of this dryer. It took a little getting used to my clothes being dry and not scorching hot to the touch when the dryer is done. On the plus side, there are a lot less wrinkles when I don't take them outright away. We noticed that when our clothes are fresh out of the dryer they haven't shrunk either. The lint filter is so easy to remove and clean. It's really nice to have the light come on when we open the dryer door.

We love our dryer so far. My favorite feature is the Washer Link setting, which automatically configures your dryer load for the laundry you just removed from the washer. I was also impressed with the Refresh Cycle with Power Steam. We were trying to get our two boys dressed for a funeral. We couldn't find our ironing board and iron because we recently moved. The refresh cycle got all the wrinkles out of their dress shirts!
