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.

Sam24043 5/13/2020

I like the washer except for one thing.. if you don't put it at the right setting for what you're washing then it won't dissolve/use all the product you put in (i.e. oxy clean and scented beads). Other than that it works great.

Doesn't wash clothes well

Kayci 4/21/2020

This washer has ruined several pair of my jeans. I definitely miss my front loader cause I don't think this moves the clothes around enough and I've even had dry spots on clothes. I am single and thr loads are always small and I hate that there's no where to put fabric softener and the laundry soap. Very, very unhappy with this product!

Patrick Yeung 4/1/2020

MartiSkl 3/28/2020

Often off balance and dancing across the floor. Often fails to spin dry. Did I mention the machine is only 6 months old and used by two old ladies who have done thousands of loads of laundry? Had a wonderful GE tech update it's computer program and provide all kind of tips. Still can't wash a set of sheets or 4 towels without a major production. Bring back the wringer washer please.

MEG1128 3/26/2020

We were gifted a washer and dryer and it took for ever to get clothes clean and often would tear out clothes. This machine gets the job done and gets it done right the first time. No need to run the washer again because it failed to rinse. One happy mom and wife here!!!

The worse washing machine I have ever owned!!!

Cardiac nurse 3/22/2020

This machine constantly goes out of balance. Poor water levels. I have to wash ALL of my laundry on the bulk setting just to get enough water in the tub to wash whatever is in the drum. Terrible machine!! I cannot wait to get rid of it!!!!

Worst possible quality washer!

tcoreaper 3/8/2020

This is potentially the worst washer I have ever had. while the washer had balancing and stability issues from day one, the washer finally after 13months decided to completely drop the basket so now its just bouncing around. Fitting enough this happens right out of the warranty period (which could be the reason for GE only providing 1 year warranty for something like this.. conveniently enough!) For something with a MSRP of ~$780 you'd expect a bit more than a years use before needing a major and not covered repair. Not sure if this is just a general reflection of how poor the quality of GE's products really have become over the years.

Tons of wash and dry options !

Heatherindayton 2/25/2020

So far so good!! So many useful dry and wash options with none of the useless funny ones that serve no purpose. I'm not a fan of locking lids, but surprisingly you can stop and unlock on this model. Clothes have both washed and dried faster than some fancy models. With is a definite plus. Can't wait to see how long they last. Fingers crossed 10-15 years !
