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 BUT

12/3/2018

Excellent product. Simplified the selection for wash cycle. Previous model had way too many choices. Great color and improved the looks. Washer and dryer are much quieter when running. BUT the access door to the filter in the washer was delivered broken. Same issue with the previous model. Cant believe this is still an issue.

Terrible Customer Service

7/25/2018

I bought this washer and the compatible dryer about a month ago and I was so excited. The day I received them the washer was damaged and was only left as a loner in order to wait for the new one to arrive. The delivery man placed the order and I spoke with the agent over the phone to confirm the order it was suppose to be received by July 10th date both confirmed by the agent over the phone and was written in my receipt for the washer and dryer. On that day which was a Tuesday and I had to take time off work nobody came called or anything. Days went by without knowing the status of my washer and NOBODY reached out to me. I finally decided to go to the store where I purchased the washer since the only number they gave me nobody would answer and the manager was able to sort things out. She was able to get them to tell me what day I was going to receive the washer and additionally I was going to get reimbursed for the day I missed. Once I received my new washer they told me to contact a number in order to file the claim for my reimbursement. When I called them they told me that this is not something that they do and some story. The agent who received my call after I was transferred and transferred asked for my phone number to pull up my file and she hung up the phone on me. This is unacceptable not only they dropped the ball on the delivery but when I try to reach them they are full of excuses and they hang up.

Finally

2/15/2018

So I was in the market for a front load washer end ended up buying and returning 3 different brands 2 Korean brands and one Swiss before finally buying the G.E. This washer is so smooth and quite compared to the other unreal the difference. This is a sleeper that I hope people realize is very competitive and better in my opinion. The only thing I wish the display was brighter sometimes hard to read.

Great Features

1/30/2018

This is a great washer. It has all the features you want. The first load I did was a load of towels to see how it worked. You could see they came out cleaner than my old washer. This has the features that my old one was missing for less money. Like quick wash more water steam etc. It sits a little low. I would like it to be at least six inches higher. But other than that it has given GE a good name.
