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.

Extended Tumble is perfect

warren777 3/25/2021

Love the extended tumble feature for when you don't get to the clothes right away. The lint trap gets filled up often so you need to make sure you clean it out a few times, wish it was larger. We have had zero problems with this drying and hoping the GE name holds true to quality.

Rob4003 3/25/2021

very nice dryer. pretty quiet. only things i would change are buzzer could be less harsh and possibly more musical, and there should be an insert to dry flat items. I have seen these on other dryers. Capacity is nice and large.

Surprisingly big capacity and quick dry!

Sunmoon247 3/24/2021

I've used my previous GE dryer for over 14 years in every single day with 6 family members. It was still working fine, but I purchased it with renewing a GE washer to match. I felt in love with this dryer, only once after I used it! Very big capacity and well dry in much quicker than my previous dryer!! I'm sure it reduced about 40 min. What an energy saving and less stress. Very pretty and I recommend this product to all.

This dryer is exactly what we needed. The options are much more specialized than our old dryer, & it's much roomier. We have had no issues, just great performance from this product. Wrinkles are very minimal if you are prompt in removal of items from dryer--much better than what we had before. We are very pleased.
