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.

It's just an "okay" Dryer.

Laundry Dryer 3/11/2021

We have to spin our dryer for about two (sometimes three) cycle. First spin cycle (80 minutes timer): The front door, whenever you opened it, the door has so much dirt/dust. Clothes still not dry. Second spin cycle: sometimes dry, sometimes it isn't.

Excellent ability to select exact drying needs.

RobinBL 3/10/2021

Dryer has more capacity than I need, which is great! The controls allow selection of type of fabric, degree of heat, length of drying, and even allow fluff without heat. Alarm for end is adjustable and loud enough to hear throughout home. Only negative, slight, is that controls are very stiff to move.

Kaila0225 3/10/2021

We love our dryer so much! We (my fiancé and I) had to go out and buy a dryer tonight due to us having 2 babies and ourselves clothes to dry and our dryer we have been using went out on us. We've never owned a new dryer or washer just used so this is a major upgrade for us! We got the matching washer as well! We love them both and all their settings and how big they are (load wise)

MAINE1 3/9/2021

Love, love this dryer. Has wonderful features such as wrinkle release and fluff. Clothes drys super fast and buzzer, adjustable volume, let's you know when dry cycle is done. Clothes cools down and you're set to fold or hang pieces. Tub is larger than I expected and has a light so you can see the clothes you're pulling out. Nice feature. Didn't expect to review an appliance but this is an exceptional unit.

Not impressed

ETGarcia 3/7/2021

It's very loud and has a banging sound when drying. I noticed that the first time I used it. It also takes 1 hour and 30- 45 minutes to dry an average load. It's not even a month old and we've attempted twice to get a GE service tech with no response. I expected better from a GE appliance.

Great dryer!

Davysmom 3/7/2021

Working great, dries all loads in one cycle. Love being able to turn the volume of the signal up, down, or off. The only improvement would be to add something to the big knob to give traction; it's too smooth and hard to turn. I may try putting a large rubber band atound it, and that should help.

Great Basic Dryer

wright679 3/4/2021

This dryer does what it needs to do-dry. If you're ooking for a dryer with all the bells and whistles look elsewhere. It's robust, clean, and has a couple of necessary settings. The lint drawer is VERY small and needs to be changed frequently, not a bog deal for me. Its a very quiet dryer and has the option of a bell or not. I would say DO NOT completely fill it because it'll take a couple of cycles to fully dry. All in all though, a great dryer.
