GE Memorial Day Savings Rebate

Offer Expires: 5/19/2022 to 6/8/2022 Must be postmarked by: 7/8/2022

Receive up to a $300 rebate with purchase of 2 or more qualifying GE, GE Profile, Haier, or Cafe Appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 7/8/2022.

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.

So far so good…

Kiwanis 5/19/2022

We bought this dryer and installed it ourselves a month ago. I like the spacious drum because it gives a full load of clothes plenty of room to fluff. We wanted a stackable so we stacked it on top of the companion washer. It is 79 inches to the top of the dryer. That's quite a reach. I'm 5'6". The controls sit at an angle at the top of the dryer. I can reach the controls, but I cannot see the dial readings from that distance with the angled feature. It works for me because after using it a while, you remember where to turn the dial for the desired setting. It would be much easier if the control panel was built flush on the front of the dryer. I knew this would be an issue before our purchase because I did the math and bought it anyway. With that said, I absolutely love dryer and the choice of different settings.

Stackable Dryer

LindaBalm 5/19/2022

I love all the functions of the dryer, I think it would be a better design for stackable to have the digital controls on the lower part making it easier to reach I am tall but still have to stand on a stool to reach the controls with it being stacked on washer.

Front load dryer

Palm trees 5/9/2022

This dryer is good size for drying clothes. It has many selections for drying. The only down fall for me was the vent location Was so low on the back, we had to cut a new hole in wall because of improper angle of ridge venting. The vent is two inches lower to the floor then most models. I wish the door was gray clear, not black to see the clothes tumbling. But over all I'm happy with the quality and my warranty of this dryer,

JMN85 4/29/2022

I like the large capacity for large loads & queen comforters. Many settings I'm still getting used to! So far my only annoyance is the lint trap. It's not your single pull out screen, it folds and not a fan of that design.

Fancy new car in the basement!

EvolAir 4/29/2022

My wife and I are driving in style now with new GE appliances! Laundry has never been easier now that we purchased a GE front-load washer and dryer. The quality and functionality of these units are what you'd expect from a modern new car. Sensor loads save time and energy while the large capacity gets through the laundry piles fast. I've never experienced such efficiency in the laundry room before! Thanks GE.

First load ended and laundry was still damp. Has happened 1 out of 3 times since. Lowe's was absolutely no help. GE customer service has been great but have no time to be home when they can send someone out yet so have to add timed dries to the end for the unsuccessful loads. Not impressed so far.

Huge interior and great value

DoggieDoc2 4/24/2022

This dryer s amazing. It does a good job of sensing the moisture and rarely stops before the dryer load is completely dry. I think the lint filter could have been designed a little better. You will need to watch the lint filter and clean it thoroughly each time before using it, especially the top inlet areas, as they tend to clog up rapidly, decreasing the available intake space of the filter. Otherwise, we are very pleased with the unit.

Clj2125 4/22/2022

At work today someone complained about the terrible washer and dryers we have in the facility and I started to gush about our beautiful, amazing and quiet GE washer and dryer. Can you be in love with an appliance? Apparently yes! I love it! They're so perfect! I had my first set years ago and they outlasted all others and then had to leave them in a house we sold so this is my second set and I love it again. This dryer is perfection!

Enjoying the new dryer

fd0198 4/21/2022

We bought this dryer as part of a matching set with a washer. It dries amazingly and it a short amount of time. I typically dry most things on low heat. The washer leaves the clothes practically dry and it hasn't taken longer than 35 minutes to dry anything including towels (towels were on a HIGH setting).
