GE Buy More Save More Rebate

Offer Expires: 8/1/2020 to 9/30/2020 Must be postmarked by: 11/30/2020

Enjoy exclusive rebate savings with purchase of qualifying GE appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 11/30/2020.

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

anissad 7/8/2020

I've only had these machines for a couple weeks. I love them. They wash extremely well as well as dry fast even within the washer, but I do use the dryer. I have yet to completely understand the vent system and how long that's suppose to run, but I haven't detected any smell of mold using the washer and didn't use the vent setting. So far its great!

Works great, and the best lint catching system!

DarrenInMebane 7/7/2020

I have mixed loads of towels, sheets, and clothes in this dryer so far many times, everything comes out dry without any additional cycles. The biggest feature I really like on this model is the lint screen. While it isn't really a "one handed" cleanup, as you need to unsnap it to open it, it catches ALL of the lint. The only real downfall of the much older design I had before was the inability to easily clean the lint trap, it took a special vacuum nozzle to reach down and get most of the remainder out. This absolutely catches ALL of it, really happy about that.

This dryer is great! Although I'm a little disheartened because when they installed it they did not bring the additional water hose so I can use the sanitize cycle but I can forgive that for now. but this thing is great does exactly what it's supposed to when it's supposed to doesn't scare me when it's done! I absolutely am in love!

It works great! Drys all of our bedding in just one cycle where as our old dryer would need to be run 3 times... I grew up with gas appliances, and was very disappointed when I learned that I could not get gas to our house, honestly dreaded getting an electric dryer, but I'm extremely impressed with this! It works as good as it looks, and I would definitely recommend this product to everyone!

This washer is the answer to anyone that had stinky front load washers in the past. I swore I would never have another one then GE came out with this model. With the new gasket & vent mold and mildew will not grow and you can actually CLOSE your door. I have already used it a few times and can't believe how quite it is...CLEAN CLOTHES FINALLY!!

We replaced our 15 yr old Kenmore High capacity washer and dryer with this GE set. The clothes dry much faster than in our old unit. The kids are surprised and bummed out that it dries their clothes so fast. They now have to pay attention when doing their laundry. We like all of the extra settings this unit provides, too.
