GE Upgrade Your Finish And Save Rebate

Offer Expires: 6/1/2019 to 7/31/2019 Must be postmarked by: 9/30/2019

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.

Wow High Tech Superior Washer

12/31/2018

In all my years of washing clothes 40 some I have never used a washer with so many functions and choices. The clothes come out super clean and almost dry reducing time in the dryer. Love the steam feature and the sanitize choice will be a hit with every pet owner. Cant say enough good things one more thing- the ADD A GARMENT button I use it every time.

GE WASHER

12/28/2018

We purchased both GE WASHER and DRYER. This was the first time we bought GE laundry products and we have not been very impressed with them. We love ease of use and these are more than we wanted. The set options especially on the dryer have not been to our standards. We would not recommend these.

12/28/2018

I bought this washer to replace an older model GE that died after 9 years of a lot of washing. I am really happy with the features that this washer has. The steam function and pre-set stain removal settings are great features. I would definitely recommend this machine if you are in the market for a washing machines.

Not what I wanted

12/27/2018

It has so many choices but is missing the ones I want. There is no way to just rinse and spin. Its way too big. If you dont have a huge load it takes forever to constantly re-balance load.I dont feel it cleans as well with so little water.

Great so far

12/27/2018

Received this washer as a replacement through my home warranty so far in impressed. Its not too noisy and vibrations are minimal and thats saying a lot seeing that our washroom is on the second floor and the old washer could be felt through the house when it hit max spin speeds. Its got a ton of features like steam clean which is cool. I guess the best part is that we can wash bigger blankets and comforters in it saves a trip to the laundromat for the bigger items. Hopefully it holds up in the long term we make sure to wipe it down after every wash and let it air out because we read that mold on the rubber seal was a reported issue.

This washer does exactly what it is supposed to do... get clothes clean They are not wadded up balls of fabric when you get them out and they smell clean and fresh. This may not sound like much but trust me if you try one of those other brands that only use their initials as the brand name you will see what I mean. We are so happy with this washer
