GE Independence Day Savings Rebate

Offer Expires: 6/22/2022 to 7/13/2022 Must be postmarked by: 8/13/2022

Receive up to an $800 rebate with purchase of 2 or more qualifying GE, Profile, Haier, or Cafe Appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 8/13/2022.

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.

AxKitty67 6/8/2022

We have a second property that we needed a new washer dryer for. We purchased this model and absolutely love the degree of control over the cycles. I never thought having a wifi enabled dryer made any sense. Boy was I wrong! It's a game changer to be able to add time or check the status from any room in the house.

KaylaAnn 6/8/2022

I love that the washer has the microband. We have two big long hair dogs and the dryer does amazing job catching the hair. We also have three boys and they are hard on their clothes and can't complain. I love the venting option on the washer that helps with drying up water after a wash. The washer is a bit louder than I like.

Quick to dry

NEHeliGuy 6/8/2022

As my review stated with the matching washer, the clothes come out of the washer very well ringed out. The dryer doesn't take long to dry them. It's a quiet dryer. The app to manage and get status from our iPad is a nice touch. Took a bit of technical arm wrestling to get the washer and dryer to connect to the app - fortunately I'm technically minded so it all worked for me.

Bot Adam 6/8/2022

Jax917 6/4/2022

I like the dryer so far, only have had it a few weeks. Large enough to dry a comforter which is great. The dials are a bit challenging to reach as the dryer is stacked above the washer and I am not very tall.

Smart Dryer

Elliott51 6/2/2022

At first I did not like the way it was drying the clothes as it was taking appx. 3 times more time than my 16 year old dryer. The Dryer technician who came to check out said to clean the Dryer vent all the way to the end and not to use the "Econo" which uses less energy but takes longer time. I tried with "Econo" mode off and it significantly improved Drying time and drying level. I have scheduled for Dryer vent cleaning that I hope will provide free air flow and further improve on drying time and level. I like the smart features i,e. dampness sensor, auto extending dry cycle, smart phone App that provides all the dry cycle info in real time through the built-in WiFi feature.
