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.

I love this dryer!

Tracy74 7/31/2020

I can't say enough good things about this dryer. Great capacity, efficient drying time and the wifi connection is so handy - it even sends me a reminder if I forget to get the clothes out of the dryer. So happy I made this purchase.

Silent and Efficient

ElenaT 7/30/2020

This is the best dryer. It's not noisy, doesn't throw off a lot of heat like my previous unit, and it works well. I haven't had a chance to use the steam feature yet, mostly because bi don't think that the installers attached the proper hoses. But I will be rectifying that situation as soon as I have them stacked...

Still exploring the many features of this dryer. Love the display and sound notifications. LED lighting is great and easy on the eyes. Each cycle seems to get the job done, although, ECO setting can run long. Would definitely buy again.

Love my new dryer. Love the WiFi feature that tells me when the cycle is done, no matter where I am with my phone. Love that it drys a king size mattress pad in ONE cycle. My old dryer would take 2 and it still wasn't dry. This one has lots of features and is very efficient.

Best dryer ever!

Rangyroth 7/26/2020

You won't be disappointed with this. Dries clothes so fast. Also, this product has the vent system and odor block. Most front loaders stink, and get mold if you don't dry door each use. With this one, you don't have to! It's the best. Nice looking too. I'm very happy. Wifi notifications are nice too.

chuck at REST Ministries 7/26/2020

Good value for the price. Extremely large dryer capacity...cuts our workload by half from our old Duet. Only issue is the plastic clip on the lint trap broke after just a few used. Easy to install and even change the door swing.

Jaspen24 7/25/2020

Very quiet, easy access and high tech as well. I like the alerts on my phone since I usually set it and forget it. Dries faster than my previous dryer. I find myself skeptical of the default times that come up on different cyles, but they're always dry at the end of the cycle.

tehale 7/25/2020

This was one of the smartest purchases we've ever made. This dryer is quiet, has great features, and treats our clothes gently while drying them super fast. LOVE that we get texts when it's done and we can "fluff from afar" to keep the laundry from wrinkling when we can't get the clothes out right away. I've already suggested this dryer as well as the matching washer to several friends.

LKo5 7/23/2020

This dryer dries my full load of towels in an hour!!!! My old machine took at least 3-4 hours! Game changer. Good options for different drying settings and able to customize. Only complaint is the removable lint trap not so easy to clean it out and the closures easily break.

CHodgkins 7/22/2020

When I purchased the matching washer and dryer unit, I was unaware that they had the ability to connect to WiFi and send alert messages when the load is about to complete as well as having been in the dryer for up to 30 minutes of the wrinkle free setting where it keeps turning and flipping the clothes to keep them from sitting in one spot and getting creased!

Senthil Siva 7/18/2020

This machine broke within a week time and I am now going through very hard time to get it replaced. I had three visits by Installation team and I am very nervous with Covid situation. It is been three week and I am shuttling between Costco, Installation Team by third party, Technical support by third party(again by Costco) and GE crew. I am spending hours and hours with all the people to this replaced. Don't buy this piece of junk. Now it is back ordered. Never ever do this mistake.

Capacity!

MacZ 7/16/2020

Love the capacity and rather lower noise level when on. "Sending" how wet stuff still is works okay. For bedding to come out really dry, we put it in "towel" mode. One criticism would be the end of cycle alarm is not loud enough (at least for us having the laundry room not very close to where we hang out).
