Delivery is for standard common carrier "curbside" delivery. "Curbside Delivery" includes delivery to the curb in front of your home.It does not typically include moving the item into your home, garage, or other location.The carrier will call to schedule a delivery appointment.A signature is required at the time of delivery.Please include a daytime phone number with your shipping information.Delivery locations that are extraordinary (such as an island or mountain top or extreme rural areas) may create additional delivery charges, one of our sales agents will be in touch to review your delivery options.

When delivery occurs please personally inspect your merchandise before signing for the product.Look for things such as holes in the box or any other type of damage to the packaging.If the packaging looks questionable do not sign for the item(s)!If you feel the damage is something you can live with- Please note all damage on the bill of lading when you sign for it.Do not let anyone tell you that you must sign for the item. You do not have to sign for it if you feel the item is questionable.If you do decide to refuse the item, make specific notes that describe the damage in detail and simply call us for a refund or reshipment.Please understand if you sign, you are stating that everything looks great and you will not be able to claim any damage caused by the delivery company.

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.

MissyZepol 12/28/2020

We purchased this as a set and absolutely love both the washer and dryer. They are pretty easy to use and run super quiet. Plus they look pretty cool! Love the feature included on the dryer to 'sanitize' laundry if you have something that maybe cannot be run through the wash and just needs that nice refresh! Overall this is a great set!!

This washer has a ton of features. The app is nice for checking the status if you aren't home, or are in another room. The smart dispense is a nice feature that will allow you to fill the detergent drawer and it automatically dispenses based on load size. Finally, the interior space is HUGE.

Top Notch!

Doonsy 12/4/2020

We have had our new GE washer and dryer for about a month now and I can't say enough about how clean our clothes are now and there is less drying time needed because of the spin cycle on the washer. We have noticed a huge difference in the cleanliness of our laundry. We had a newer top loader(different brand) and hated the way it washed, laundry never seemed clean.

New Home: New Dryer

DVittz 12/1/2020

Just moved and needed to purchase new dryer. Wanted a machine big enough to hold my quilts and heavy bedding in order to be able to give them a good cleaning prior to packing them away for the next season. So far, it is everything I hoped it would be.

The alerts help remind us that the clothes are done, which saves us time! Do yourself a favor and look at GE as your next buy, you will be happy you did:)

DrTango322 9/25/2020

I love everything about this dryer except one thing. It has great capacity. The clothes coming out of the dryer are dry and wrinkles are minimal. It literally outshines every dryer I have ever had. The only problem is the app that is supposed to inform me when my wash is done along with other information to further enhance the performance. The app kept giving me an error that my machine was offline even though the router is in the same room as the dryer. I gave up on the app. If they would fix the app, I would give this 5 stars!

Jnldewey98 9/23/2020

It's hard to say how good this dryer will be, but as of now it's does a pretty good job. The features on this is very cool, but maybe a little overkill. I'm still trying to figure things out, but with mixed fabric loads, not everything gets dry. Other than that, it is a good dryer

Beautiful appliance, which you would not necessarily say about a washer/Dryer..but they are. Love all the features and very quiet. I love how they handled the vent. other Dryers have a single screen, but it always seems that other lint stays in the dryer. This has a double screen that seems to catch the lint much better.
