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.

Worst Washer ever

Avon23 11/26/2020

A good washer but a missing feature

RJJH 11/17/2020

This machine was specified by our builder. It has no provision for dispensing fabric softener. The instruction says to wait until the rinse cycle light goes on, and them add the softener. What a design flaw -- does anyone in their right mind stand by the washer as it cycles and wait for that light to go on??

Broke after 20 day!

MCann 11/16/2020

We just moved into our new home. Our GE washer broke just after 18 days!!! We have so many towels and dirty clothes from the move. We can't get it fixed for 5 days and praying the part won't have to be ordered. Very very disappointed.

ks oma 11/16/2020

This machine is better than I expected. I really like all the features it has especially the stain pre-treat option. The only thing I wish it had is the fabric softener dispenser but with a downey ball that was rectified. Recommend this machine to anyone wanting a good high efficiency top loading washer

New Washer

Rob4265 11/4/2020

Our old washer broke after about 5 years (not a GE) and the replacement washer is definitely an upgrade. This washer has added cycles for our clothes, a large washbasin. The new machine also runs quicker cycles than the old machine.

Always gets off balance

Nheet 11/3/2020

4 out of 5 loads this machine gets out of balance. Sometimes multiple times in a load. Settings don't really matter but towels and sheets will definitely be out of balance multiple times in one washing. Very frustrating. It was our builders mid level washer option. Contacted GE and was told they have had multiple complaints about them but there was nothing that can be done. Very disappointing from service and product from GE

Nice large "non-agitator" tub

Nicholas B 10/10/2020

This washer has a huge tub with no agitator in the center. It can hold large items such as a quilt. The down side of this may be a high frequency of out-of-balance situations requiring some adjusting of the load during the spin cycles

It takes some getting used to. Never sure about the water level since can't open to see because water stops flowing in. Have to start the cycle all over again to start the wash. I don't like it now but learning how to use it. Manual not very helpful.

Claudia95336 9/10/2020

I was disappointed when I found out there wasn't a fabric softener dispenser. Once I read the manual and learned that this machine operates differently and that it how it saves water, energy & has shorter wash times. I understood. I can still use fabric softener by turning on the deep rinse option and either manually adding the softener or by adding a "Downy ball".

Rudy Gutierrez 9/9/2020

We're still having issues with it! It's very difficult to determin whether it's programming for the wash, or what! Although it's computerize, having to wait and see what's its gonna do is kinda bizzare, and little aggravating. Determining water to load size is still a mystery and most times have to start stop and reprogram it all over.
