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.

The product is good; however, it should have a fabric softener dispenser verse having to manually place the softener in the machine.

Terrible. Do not recommend.

LCass 3/19/2021

I would give this washer one star, but it does have a large capacity, which is a necessity in my home. Other than that, it's terrible. It is SO LOUD. You can hear it all throughout the house when it's running and we have a separate laundry room with a door to close and we have a pretty large home with 5 bedrooms and you can hear this thing throughout. There is also no tray to load the detergent and fabric softener so you better pray to God you make the rinse cycle...which also, by the way, does not have an alarm to alert you that the rinse cycle is starting. So get your stopwatch out to use this darn thing or you'll miss your rinse cycle! For some background, this washer was installed in our new home by the builder, we did not get to pick it. Disappointed is an under statement. We are currently looking to replace it and will be getting rid of it all together. Do not recommend.

Casharri 3/14/2021

I like this washer because, although it does not have the agitator, it really gets the clothes clean. I've had so many clothes ruined in the past by the old agitator washers. This is a refreshing change and I am now hooked.

Cyn 15 3/14/2021

I am very pleased to again be an owner of a fine GE appliance. I like the multiple options and features. The tub is deep and adequate for king sized bedding. I give it 4 stars for 2 reasons. I miss a fabric softener dispenser and the water level barely covers the items. I do like that I can adjust the level to add more water.

Would love to see liquid soap and softner ports in all your washers. The ones in our price range do not have them. The washer is noisey but does a good job cleaning with little saundry soap. Over all, we are pleased with our purchase.

Poor Quality washer

Poor quality washer 2/19/2021

The washer cannot accommodate a full load of clothes. The water never covers the clothes whether it's half wash or full wash. Not an energy efficient appliance. We have to use a bucket to fill the water level when doing laundry. Therefore, water usage is high, Electric usage has increased also.

The Best Washer I've ever owned

Anniegarland 2/11/2021

Happily surprised about the quality of this dryer. Everything was thought of, including built in handles recessed on the sides to move it.I loved reading "Made in Canada" rather than " China junk."and the difference is obvious. It's beautiful to look at, has an awesome big washer tub, even soak and stains features we shopped for but none others had! We've put little rugs on the tops to avoid scratching our new treasures. ;) My clothing and linens, towels all look better than ever. I cannot believe we suffered with such junk before. Thank you

New Construction home 2/9/2021

I hate this bottom of the barrel basic machine and so does every person I've talked to in the development. It is bottom of the line builder basic with no place even for fabric softener.... much less steam or sanitize features... and it makes a loud horrible noise that sounds like it is broken when it runs. It is so loud & unpleasant, I have to close the laundry room door. It is horrible and I am most unhappy as is everyone else who got stuck with this builder basic entry level washer. I did not have a choice to upgrade. This all the builder offers.

I love the washer and dryer set

Wash World Mom 2/8/2021

I love my new washer and dryer set. It is quiet and efficient but I can not wash my comforters in there because it doesn't spin. With washing jeans and towels, you would think it could handle a comforter. Im a little concerned about the water level, I am wondering if all the soap and fabric softener will ruin clothes if it doesn't wash them out but I guess I could use a 2nd rinse.

QUESTION- Tide Pods

TampaQuestions2 1/15/2021

1) Since this washer does not have a place to add detergent or fabric softener would a tide pod just go in directly with the clothes? 2) When I use fabric softener, I set it to the 2nd rinse mode (it says to select this one when using fabric softener) but does that mean when the cycle starts I open the washer and add the softener?
