GE Black Friday Savings Rebate

Offer Expires: 11/1/2018 to 11/30/2018 Must be postmarked by: 1/31/2019

Enjoy exclusive rebate savings with purchase of qualifying GE appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 1/31/2019.

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 bought this drier along with a washing machine a couple of months ago. I like the different clothing selections then the machine determines the time length etc. I especially like the fact that clothing that usually took an hour to dry in my old machine now because of the machine sensors takes around a half hour. Love the energy savings

Steam Refresh is a Lifesaver

9/4/2018

This is my first GE Dryer and I absolutely love it. The right height pedestal is fantastic and the steam refresh feature is amazing for my dress shirts. I like to throw my shirt in in the morning when I am getting ready and I have a practically pressed shirt when I walk out the door 15 minutes later.

Drys clothes super fast

3/30/2018

With our previous dryer that was less than 18 old it would take over a half an hour before the machine would sense the closes were dry then we would have to add another 15 minutes to actually have mostly dry clothes. With this dryer - 10 minuets average sometimes 15 or 20 but surprisingly often we find clothes are dry in as little as 5 minutes. Im not just saying this but this dryer really is amazing

The dryer has only been used for 2 weeks at this time but seems to be a better product. The right height feature is great. The end of cycle tone repeats for at least 45 seconds so you have a better chance of hearing it if you arent close by.

Easy to Use

12/1/2017

It was very easy to use and simple to operate. The elevation of door made it easy to put the clothes in and get them out. The controls were simple to operate. It could use a little bigger print on the labels but with my glasses on it was easy to figure out.

I had this installed along with the matching washing machine and I have been very pleased. It has a number of helpful features and it really is the right height. One concern I have is that the door doesnt seem to latch quickly but I suspect that maybe my unit needs to be leveled better.
