GE Celebrate Independents Appliance Delivery and Installation Rebate

Offer Expires: 6/10/2021 to 6/19/2021 Must be postmarked by: 7/19/2021

Receive a $100 delivery and installation rebate with purchase of qualifying GE appliance valued $999 or more. Rebate form must be postmarked by 7/19/2021.

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.

Katie222 5/12/2021

Reverse Door Capabilities

BB G 5/10/2021

I bought this product based on my previous GE purchases (Convection Oven/Stove, Refrigerator. The doors on my washer and dryer are reversible and that is something I needed based on how my wash room was built. We also added a beautiful wood counter top over it to fold. SO nice! Laundry is not a favorite thing to do, but when you have room and features, it makes it more bearable!

Lint trap poorly designed

Mistyo 5/7/2021

This is a beautiful machine that functions top notch. The lint trap is not something I would have considered when buying a dryer, but will going forward. It must be opened in order to pull lint out, thus lint particles going everywhere. 5 stars if lint trap didn't need to be opened for cleaning.

nwimpy 5/3/2021

So far I really enjoy this dryer. I feel like the time drying is buried under all the "features" that this dryer is equipped with. I have yet to add the app & WiFi capabilities since the rating for the app is really bad. I do think that the lint trap is very ingenious. I appreciate that the LED light in the dryer is on a timer & is not an incandescent bulb. The capacity is huge!!!

CM024 5/3/2021

I have been using this dryer for almost three months now with absolutely no issues and it dries so well and dries less when you need it to for delicate clothes that need to finish hang drying. The Wrinkle Care option is so convenient when I get too busy to rush to pull clothes out of the dryer before wrinkles set in.
