GE Celebrate Independents Appliance Delivery and Installation Rebate

Offer Expires: 6/10/2021 to 6/19/2021 Must be postmarked by: 7/19/2021

Receive a $100 delivery and installation rebate with purchase of qualifying GE appliance valued $999 or more. Rebate form must be postmarked by 7/19/2021.

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.

This dryer replaces a 30-year-old dryer so I am really pleased to have a new dryer with many selections. I haven't used all of them yet but am happy with what I've used so far. It has a large capacity and runs quietly.

This's the best dryer I have used so far. Very quiet with a lot of drying options. The size is very huge to dry anything u can think of. I only wish the app was more useful but hopefully they can update with more useful features.

quick drying, many features

nwimpy 5/3/2021

So far I really enjoy this dryer. I feel like the time drying is buried under all the "features" that this dryer is equipped with. I have yet to add the app & WiFi capabilities since the rating for the app is really bad. I do think that the lint trap is very ingenious. I appreciate that the LED light in the dryer is on a timer & is not an incandescent bulb. The capacity is huge!!!

CM024 5/3/2021

I have been using this dryer for almost three months now with absolutely no issues and it dries so well and dries less when you need it to for delicate clothes that need to finish hang drying. The Wrinkle Care option is so convenient when I get too busy to rush to pull clothes out of the dryer before wrinkles set in.

Paired with washer NO GOOD.

CCCclark1 5/2/2021

The washer paired with this dryer has faulty non compatible electrical issue that is not compatible with modern to code home breakers. GE and Lowe's knows of this issue yet continues to sell and market these paired devices. FIX the issue! I has to call a master electrician to tell me that the washer was the issue not my modern to code breakers.

Large capacity

nsbginger 5/2/2021

Two issues - one is that the delicate setting only has low or very low; and two, the lint filter isn't the easiest to clean. I clean it after every load (it even reminds you to check it). I do like the large capacity and it looks nice. Also like the "smart" feature with the app.

A little noisy

Mwall2808 5/2/2021

The dryer itself is wonderful, but when you out something in it, like a jacket with zipper on the outside, you can hear that zipper hit everytime the drum rotates. I really like the sanitize feature on it. Especially when on bedding. I feel the bedding is cleaner when I put it on the bed. The extended cycle it's great. I love to be able to run the dryer until the washer is done and not have clothes that are wrinkled. When you put it on high heat, it gets hot. I actually melted/deformed a pair of shoes in it. My old dryer didn't even dry them on high heat, so I thought that's what I needed to put it on to dry the shoes in this dryer. I'm not complaining about the shoes, I'm excited about the heat and short amount of time it takes to dry items. The lint basket is amazing as well. It catches pretty much everything. I hardly have any lint coming out of the vent outside. Still waiting to purchase the stand for it but I have one on the washer and it adds great stability and height to the washer. I can't wait to purchase one for the dryer.

Ziyaku 5/1/2021

Overall it is a good appliance but I think because of poor assembling a part is came off and damaged couple of my clothes on first run. You can see the faulty part in the picture. Simply I pushed it back and no more came off again. It works great now.

Clunky Door

FAHW Replacement 4/30/2021

Would give dryer a five star rating, except for the door itself. It closes like an old farm gate. Meaning, to make it a smooth close, we have to pick up the door slightly. This should not need to be done on a brand new dryer. I assume it is a design flaw. This dryer was a replacement product from a home warranty company and not of our choosing.

Since the machine is new, it will take a while to fully comprehend the gradations of heat necessary for optimum drying and no more. The named settings are no help really. This is true for ALL machines.

Great until it wasn't

Mg1498 4/28/2021

It was great the first week and then it suddenly stopped running week 2. It would make a clicking noise every 10 sec. When it was off, when you turn it on and tried to start it, it would click and turn off. Not happy that I have to have it serviced since it's brand new but GE was easy to talk to and are sending someone to work on it next week. 3 stars because it has been a great washer and dryer while it worked and the app is very convenient
