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.

With this new washer and dryer set, my clothes are no longer coming out just smelling laundered. The smell is hot, fresh and brand new. I'm bringing my clothes back to life, not just making them smell nice getting closer to discard every wash. Old musty clothes come through the wash smelling new. Wow!

Wont work, and no fix

MuchoDisheartened2020 11/12/2020

Essentially, my brand new dryer stopped constantly starting within two weeks. It took almost two weeks to get a technician out. He came and of course it was working, but I showed videos. He couldn't replicate the issue, so he ordered a motherboard. This was Saturday, its now Thursday. It has not worked since Saturday afternoon, and have no fix in sight. I tried to put in a new request and im getting an error. I spent way too much on a machine that didnt last a month. The fact that I am having a hard time posting because "sad", "saddened" and "disappointed" are already taken...

Amazing Dryer!

Bluebar 11/10/2020

I purchased this dryer to replace a broken dryer and am so happy I went with GE. The dryer is big and holds a lot of laundry. In the past I would have to do several drying cycles and now I can get away with doing one huge load. Also, I love the app that allows me to see when my cycle is done, how long the cycle will take, etc. This is such a great dryer and if you are in need of an update to an old dryer, I highly recommend this GE dryer.

Electrical Issues from day 2

EBSh 11/5/2020

When the dryer works, its great! However, my electrial panel started to malfunction by day 2 of use. Even trying to get a warranty claim processed through GE to get this fixed has been a nightmare...as the wait time to get the first available tech to come out to check the dryer is 3 weeks.

deeree27 10/30/2020

Bought this after searching forever for it. Loved the color of it as well as the unique features, including steam dry. I also bought the matching washer. I love that the dryer communicates with the washer and knows exactly what type of setting to dry it on. Not once in the month since I have owned it have I had to go in and re-dry clothes because the cycle did not do it correctly! The warrantt on it was the deciding factor!!!

Neil T 10/20/2020

We needed something that would sit a little bit higher to help our backs. This unit on the pedestal certainly meets that requirement. The one disappointment is in the notification from the machine. It is so quiet that unless you are in the room, it is inaudible.

This feature alone will save me $$$ in dry cleaning bills. Sapphire Blue looks great, but who cares what the color is when it can do so much!!! I also love the size for king size bedding.

LisaCK 10/13/2020

Love the dryer. It has all the bells & whistles I need plus some. However, one of the deciding factors getting a GE was the height of the machines WITH THE PEDESTAL. The pedestals are on backorder with no ETA from GE. So I'm basically standing on my head to load/unload. i "settled" for the blue since it's all that was in stock, but I now LOVE it. Otherwise it's great.
