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.

MahwahJoe 11/16/2020

I was surprised with how noisy the machine is. It is on our first floor, so you really hear it. I suppose that it would not be a problem if it were in the basement.

Not my favorite

ConsumerPartyOf6 10/15/2020

I have used this washer for just under a month. It is not my favorite. I don't like that the detergent goes directly on the clothes. There is not a space for oxy clean. Worst of all, the clothes have still been soaking wet when the cycle is over.

Washer and Dryer

WMED 9/10/2020

They are Loud and the washer won't spine out. Because I have had them for 4years you can't do anything unless it will cost me more money. And people say buy from your town stores well I had to order a part for my washer and had my home town business get it and put it in GE can't do anything. So if you have GE and something goes wrong you better pay there people to fix it so they have a record of it. So maybe trying to keep your small businesses in business might not work so well. Don't get me wrong I am all about keeping my business in my town going but here is what you get. Nothing. This is why the small business can't keep up.

Walking Washer

Discouraged customer 7/9/2020

I was excited to purchase a new washing machine without the agitator to make washing comforters and blankets easier. Unfortunately, the washer "walks" away from the wall as far as 12-15 inches every time I wash a comforter or blanket.

laelhomc 6/18/2020

We've had this washing machine for about 3 months. It came with the house (new construction) so we didn't choose it, but it has been fine. It is a little bit loud but it doesn't bother us. Get's the clothes clean and has lots of different options. Very standard washing machine. We're happy with it.

wine cork 1 6/7/2020

This washer was supplied by my builder for my new condo and it is not what I would have p icked. I like the large stainless steel tub, however there is no fabric softener dispenser. Since I don't like using dryer sheets, I have to try to catch the rinse cycle to add softener.

New York 26 4/29/2020

Easy to figure out the different functions on the control panel. Enough options to cover all of our needs without getting too complex. Big step up from the unit we replaced. Only concern is water level is low on some loads so we're occasionally using the deep fill option.

multiple cycles

Susie60 4/24/2020

I'm very disappointed in this washer model. There is so little water in the tub so clothes do not move around. They're squashed. All of the spin cycles are so strong the squashed clothes are too wrinkled to wear and dryer can't get wrinkles out of sheets. This is my first GE washer (provided by builder), and I would return to store if I purchased it.

I don't like this type of washer

Iapon 3/20/2020

I do not like these type of washer. You can't soak your clothes over night because it does not fill enough water like the other washers that the water is over the clothes. It takes a long time to wash. The clothes are all tangle when it stops so you have to untangle them before you put them in the dryer. It does not stop to add the fabric softener.

Doesn't handle small loads well - at all.

JimHerman 3/8/2020

Purchased new town-home and it included all GE appliances. This washer model is difficult to use and particularly difficult with small loads. Virtually all small loads are out of balance and the washer tries to climb out into the hall. When I attempt to stop it, instructions indicate a single press of the pause button will unlock the lid - I assume after the tub has stopped if in spin cycle; however, this does not happen. The only way to manually redistribute the load is to hold the pause button for 3-5 seconds to cancel the cycle then the entire wash cycle has to restart from the beginning. Then the whole out-of-balance thing starts all over and at least half of the time, I must restart yet again.

Notexcitedatall 1/21/2020

This washer doesn't have detergent and softener dispensers to make it difficult to disperse evenly on all the clothes. If you couple that with the lack of water used due to the energy efficient feature it doesn't smell like all the clothes were washed evenly and thoroughly
