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.

TRB52 8/7/2020

This is the first time I have owned a GE dryer. I have owned other GE products. This dryer dries a large load of towels in a short amount of time. Impressed!! It's quiet, and has so many features. I can't wait to try them all. This dryer just makes me happy!!

Stefanka 8/6/2020

I'm loving this dryer. Very spacious drum. I can fit so much more in. Rather really quiet. I love the available drying options and my clothes come out extremely fresh and fluffed. The lint filter is substantially smaller than what I am used to but it still serves it's purpose. My only complaint would be that the lint trap is a little tricky to try and get inserted back into the slot.

Gets clothes dry

JamieRap 8/6/2020

The dryer has been preforming as expected. Clothing dries nicely. I enjoy the options of optimal dry, where the dryer senses how long it needs to run. Only issue, when drying sheets, they tend to ball up, have to stop the dryer and shake them out. When drying jeans the waistband can still have a dampness to it. Other than that, it works as expected.

Disapppointed

Jimbo23456 7/30/2020

While clothes are drying , a very loud buzzing rattling noise comes and goes from the rear of the dryer . While the buzzing rattling occurs if I press with my fingers on the large silver rear plate , the buzzing rattling stops . Seems like the rear cover is too thin and rattles easily . Also drying times for a half load of bathroom towels takes much too long as many other reviews have stated.

I love my new dryer. It has great features for my different fabric types and drys my clothes perfectly. The drunm is very big for larger loads. The lint tray makes little felt sheets out of the lint. This dryer collect so much more lint than my old one The lint trap must be a superior filter.

millie2300 7/29/2020

We purchased this dryer from BestBuy's website during the pandemic. I was skeptical about purchasing online because I like to see what I'm buying first, and I tend to ask a lot of questions. The reviews were really helpful and the product information and videos were very informative. I haven't had any issues with the dryer and I'm actually quite satisfied with my purchase.

Exhaust ducting difficulties

Bike Mike 7/24/2020

The only problem with this unit is the large plastic cover on the rear. It takes up to much room and prevented me from using the semi-rigid ducting kit I was forced to buy for it to be installed by Best Buy. Not enough depth in the dryer cabinet to use

Nice size but not made for heavy loads

Bztino 7/23/2020

We bought this model a few weeks ago and about the third day using it it started making a weird noise. It looks like even though it's big you can put a large load at the same time because then it starts making the noise again. A bit annoying having to put 2 loads for every washed load.

Bought the washer and dryer set. Washer works great! Dryer worked for two weeks then developed this VERY HIGH PITCHED squealing sound like a bearing was going out. Placed a service call to G.E. and got on their service schedule for a warranty repair. Unfortunately, it will be another week before they can come out. : (
