GE Buy More Save More Rebate

Offer Expires: 10/1/2020 to 10/31/2020 Must be postmarked by: 12/31/2020

Enjoy exclusive rebate savings with purchase of qualifying GE appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 12/31/2020.

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.

LisaCK 10/13/2020

Love the dryer. It has all the bells & whistles I need plus some. However, one of the deciding factors getting a GE was the height of the machines WITH THE PEDESTAL. The pedestals are on backorder with no ETA from GE. So I'm basically standing on my head to load/unload. i "settled" for the blue since it's all that was in stock, but I now LOVE it. Otherwise it's great.

Ksell 10/13/2020

I had a top of the line Samsung before. While it was a good washer, I like the GE better so far. It's thorough, has more features and faster. I love the blue color, just wish there was a shinier version of that blue.

Great Dryer just wish it had better App and Wifi

R2D2173 10/1/2020

Dryer is greate and has all of the fetuers that I could want and we have had no issues. Once we got them connected the Washer link feature is pretty nice and has worked out great so far. I just wish the WIFI supported 5g and the Phone app was more stable. It took me multiple times to connect to the WIFI and the App only seems to work about 40% of the time. This day and age there should be no excuse to have poor app support.

Great Addition to the household appliances

msandlin15 9/28/2020

The product is very well made for starters, the installers did a great job of getting it installed into our laundry room. The unit does come with shipping pegs to install when you move to keep the tub in the middle of the unit while shipping. The various settings makes washing a breeze. Our favorite is the sanitize mode, it makes sheets come out smelling good and clean. The other thing is the tide smart load, it allows you to place laundry soap in and not have to worry about placing any soap in. The only dislike is the sound is very low cant turn it up to hear when the loads are done.

Great Features , But Too Much Heat

Manny787 9/27/2020

It puts too much heat on the clothes even on the extra low temperature it still radiates too much heat. Maybe it will calm down after a while, a sensor for temperature would be great.

We tried a Maytag and it shook and walked into our dryer. So, we took it back and bought this GE pair. Look is great and very nice how big. We washed our king sized comforter that we usually take to cleaners, so immediate savings. WiFi option is really nice feature.Thanks.

Laundry Momma 9/26/2020

I really like that my machine is connected to WiFi although I wasn't looking for it being able to know how how much time is left when I'm in the other room is great. Also if I'm away from the house I can ask my kids to pull it. I also really like that the dry cycle syncs with the washer so if I'm sanitizing towels in the wash - I don't have to set the dryer it turns to correct cycle synchronously.

I like how it has a mind of its own like even if I turn the dryer on to dry again after I let it dry once it will automatically turn off. It's basically saying okay your close are dry take them out. Instead of over heating them and burning hole in your socks.
