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 new washer

8/8/2018

I bought this last month and so far love it. It is my second GE front load. Last one lasted 9 years. This is a much better machine. Lots of problems have been solved. The old one wouldnt stay balance even on small loads. The door seemed to drip water when left open to air out. The new one I have washed rugs and a large load of towels and had absolutely no issues with balancing. Some new features like extra rinse cycle I use all the time. Love it

Good Price but thats all.

8/5/2018

If youre irritated or dont like loud noises DONT buy this set. My laundry room has a solid oak door and the noise from the washer pump and motor are truly irritating even with the door closed. And when Im in the laundry room removing clothes from dryer and have to listen to washer running another load.... OMG the noise is terrible. I should have paid more attention to previous reviews. Yep the price was good but you definitely get what you pay for. So if your laundry is far away from your normal living area go for it. Soooo disappointed in GE. This will be the last GE appliance we will ever purchase.

Almost perfect

7/31/2018

Clothes come out clean and the washer is quieter than I expected. There are more options then I know what to do with but for fussy people its perfect. My only issue is that heavy pieces of laundry such as comforters and a full load of towels seem to get stuck on the spin mode where the machine will spend an hour trying to rebalance the load.

When we moved into our house money was tight and we bought a very inexpensive GE top load washer figuring wed get a few years of service and then get something better. 13 years later and one minor repair that washer was still going strong but we decided it was finally time for something more efficient that could handle a king size comforter. We decided to go with GE again and this new washer is way more efficient than the old one and its much gentler on the clothes. The agitator in the old top loader left clothes twisted and wrinkled. Clothes come out of this new washer drier and less wrinkled - and Im getting less lint from the dryer. I like that it has lots of cycles to choose from - and its easy to customize the cycle like changing the water temperature or spin cycle speed. It uses less water than the old washer and so far everything has come out clean. As a DIYer I like that it has an access panel on the front for cleaning the drain water filter - not all front loaders have that. The wash cycle is very quiet. The spin cycle is louder but acceptable - and quieter than our old washer. Well see how it holds up over time but so far were very happy with it.

I checked around for a new washer and found that this GE washer was exactly what I needed. I have an older house with a drain pipe that is less than 2.0 actually 1.5. Found out the hard way - My drain pipe was unable to handle the discharge from a new HE 5.0 top loader washer I purchased 5 months ago. This GE washer was the only on that stated that the drain pipe only needs to be 1 1/4. This front loader drains without any issues and has great features. Added feature there is an easy access door to the filter so I dont need to call for a service tech to open and clean the unit.

I just recieved this washer from my home warranty company to replace one that had broken. At first I was sceptical about a GE washer mainly because I have always gone with the big money M word company. But I have to say so far I am impressed. It is quiet and fast. I love the way it will adjust the load balancing for the spin cycle so it doesnt shake like crazy. I almost cant wait for the dryer to go out now.

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

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. :/
