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.

Marciamfl 8/12/2020

We made a major move across half of the country and within days needed to have a washer and dryer. This dryer had a large capacity and yet the simplicity to do everything we needed. It turned out to be a winner. Large capacity, easy settings, quiet, simple lint removal and serves as a landing spot for our cat's snack (away from the dogs).

So Far, So Good

sharyn23 8/11/2020

I gave it a "Good" rating because I have only had it for 2 days, but it seems to working good. I like the multiple settings and the fact that it has knobs, not electronic board. The low heat is actually low and it has a no heat setting, i use that a lot. The lint trap is somewhat flimsy, this could be improved, but it does the job. It should last if you are careful and easy with it. I will try to update in a few months.

Frodo of GA 8/11/2020

After having a very basic dryer for years it is great to have a dryer that dries the entire load in one cycle. The capacity is great and works in conjunction with the large capacity GE washer I have as well.The setting and features are great, including the fluff/de-wrinkle. The buzzer,even at lowest setting is ANNOYINGLY loud. and most of the time I have it turned off. most annoying about the buzzer is that it goes off multiple times unless you go and t leat open the dryer door.

Settings for every laundry type

Kiki57 8/5/2020

The original product arrived damaged (broken belt). The technician came back to fix it and in the process disabled the interior light. He had to come back a second time to fix that. Finally our dryer works as expected - efficiently and offers a multitude of settings. We're very pleased with our purchase, though I won't purchase from that particular retailer again. I wish registering the product had been easier. . .

dubaugee 8/5/2020

We were hesitant to purchase the dryer because of the disdain we have for the matching GE washer we purchase we had to have a dryer in a hurry, and this one was easily available to us. I must admit that, so far, the dryer is doing very well. Interestingly enough, it does a good job of drying without seemingly getting super hot like our old dryer did.

MomLife2 8/5/2020

What I like most about this dryer is the "More Dry" setting which simply gets your laundry completely dry the first time. I used to do timed drying but would almost always have to add more time when it stopped. Not with this setting!
