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.

Great choice

TAZNC 4/29/2021

This was a replacement for a washer that we gave to our daughter- an expensive Samsung. We were seeking a front loader and chose this model not expecting or even considering GE as an option. The values was too good to pass up. One particular feature is the automatic venting.

Quiet with Multiple Cycle Options

Angelaaaaaa 4/28/2021

We recently replaced our nearly 20 year old GE washer of similar design. We love how the new one has a modern display board, and numerous options when starting a load. It's also bigger and MUCH quieter. You can select a ventilation option after running a load to thoroughly dry out the machine. Very happy with it so far.

Simon99 4/26/2021

Initially leaned towards the GE because of the reversible door option. Our dryer is on the left of our washer so this was a great option. This machine cleans so thoroughly and spins so quietly it is hard to believe. The cloths are so well spun that it cuts way back on the dryer time.

My Pair 4/26/2021

After careful research and review of several washer and dryer sets, my choice to select my GE was the best ever. I choose this set for many reasons but with the challenges we're living in now, this machine having a cleansing, sanitization, and Allergan's selection made the choice easy. Thank you GE this appliance was right on time. I highly recommend it.

Excellent Price For Size and Features

jamescleansitall 4/25/2021

GE has lost a sizable portion of the Washer/Dryer market. Changing times and industry have made Samsung and LG the major sellers... not anymore! GE has gone "all-out" to produce and build a larger washer/dryer with high-end features for the same price of the "low-end" models from today's popular sellers! Strong, Quality-Built and QUIET, my GE front-loader washer/dryer set is remarkable! Every time I remove cloths from the washer, they're about 60% dryer than our previous washer! Than means less drying time and less electricity being used = money saving! The washer stands almost 2" taller than most front-loaders, remember that when purchasing (measure twice to install once). ONE NEGATIVE - the End-Of-Cycle sound is NOT loud at all, GE are you listening?? How about an UPGRADE for that alert-chime?!!

Our new washer has such a large capacity and many great features. It's quiet and efficient. It even has an option that helps dry the machine when you're done with the laundry. When the washing cycle is finished, the machine plays a pleasant melody instead of an annoying beeping sound. We haven't tried it yet but you can connect to your WiFi and control the machine remotely. With so many features, this was a great purchase.

I've had this washer for about a month. I was skeptical about buying a front loader because of all the negative things I've heard about them. After reading the reviews, I decided on this one. I'm so glad I did. It's quiet, and my clothes come out so fresh. I love the venting feature to rid it of any moisture after a cycle.

I especially like the spin settings, the clothes are almost dry! This significantly reduces the time in the dryer. GE appliances are my go to choice.
