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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

New purchase fail

Submitted by Stacey4545 - 12/31/2020

We purchased this washer on 12/3 and within days we started having issues. A few times now it did not spin out the heavy bedding. We had to redo the wash cycle multiple times. Due to Covid restrictions we are not able to return. So my hope is we don't have any more issues.

New technology is energy efficient

Submitted by Ann987 - 12/30/2020

I'm getting used to this washer and its operations. So easy and very energy efficient. It balances the clothes while adjusting the water levels. Sometimes I think it needs more water. Just goes to show you how pre determined water levels are wasteful. The tub itself is big. I washed a queen size down comforter no problem. Spins it almost dry so the dryer is used less.

Good washer.

Submitted by LCHW - 12/26/2020

A very good washer. Would recommend. After first few washes , machine is quiet and movement more flexible. Clothes come out clean. Comforters wash well on bulky cycle. Delicate cycle is good. The normal spin cycle is sufficient. When mixing fabrics types. I noticed if a particular cycle is selected such as towels and a clothing item is included, the clothing item comes out twisted and wrinkled. Prefer deep fill and extra rinse options but these are options so you can choose. Dimensions are good for limited space.

Good but noisy

Submitted by Heyhon - 12/26/2020

This washer is great for getting clothes clean in a short amount of time. The tub size is more than adequate for our family of two. There are numerous settings and I can customize any of them. However, this machine is noisier than I've been used to.

Submitted by Mariorolando - 12/24/2020

Easy to operate, it tell the time of ending wash as you choose different cycles, like the see thru glass, a little taller than old one, but this has larger and deeper tub, I will say that the noise is standard and also the vibration is standard

Submitted by Dream Sparker - 12/24/2020

The delivery was smooth and it looks very nice. I love the melody feature of the control board. It can handle large load easily and cleans very well. It's not that loud as my former washing machine. I love the futuristic deaign and more feminie look which is wives-friendly :) It's not a cheap appliance, but it seems it has good quality and durability as I expected. I'd recommed this machine to my friends.

Ask a woman and hire women engineers/designers

Submitted by momfudski - 12/23/2020

GE needs to hire 50-yr-old women to tell them what women want. Just give me an old-fashioned push/pull dial so I can control the machine at will. This computerized nonsense is a joke. I had to call cust serv to find out how to FOOL my machine into FILL. Then it was in the middle of a cycle so I was stuck and had to empty the water/soap out and start over. No different than the guy who designed the dishwasher soap dispenser that won't stay closed once it gets a little worn. You need women overseeing all of it.

Submitted by HappyCustomer14 - 12/22/2020

This is my 1st brand new washer, I love it! It's so big inside that I can fit all my towels in 1 load. I can also fit my comforters too. There are a few things I don't really like about it - you can't fill washer while cover is open. It doesn't seem to fill-up as much as I would like it too and the display is too big - shows a couple of letters at a time and goes too fast.
