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.

Terrible washer

Nisee5 11/20/2020

Bought my washer from Lowe's and at almost a year the washer had water coming out the bottom. They replaced the drum and told me to not wash small loads or rugs. Well what is the point of having a washer if there are limitations on them. Well almost a year later the washer started the same thing. I called GE and was told it is out of warranty. I guess they are made to be disposable. I have wood floors and now have issues with them. This washer is a piece of crap.

Best Washer I have owned

Nana Susie 11/19/2020

I love the dual action washing. I had an impeller washer previously and it didn't move my clothes around from top to bottom. With this machine, the agitator works with the impeller to move the clothes sideways and from top to bottom. It's quiet too and has great features!

Nice Machine with Great features

Sandman 73 11/18/2020

We are on our first load and it's operating as designed. It's a lot quieter than the old Whrilpool Cabrio we replaced, which was junk, nothing but trouble. This machine has a lot of very nice features and a well designed dashboard with easy to understand instructions. I installed it myself and found it very easy to install. It's a high efficiency machine with an agitator for better cleaning. I know it's running but can't hardly hear it at all what a relief, the old Whirlpool Cabrio was so loud you would have to turn up the tv 3 rooms away with the doors closed. It cleans a lot a lot better. We are very pleased especially for the price we payed. Highly recommend this machine.

Rosie510 11/18/2020

the lid is an issue, the sensor dose not work right and when the computer say lid the washer will not wash. or do a cycle. I'm very disappointed with it I have purchased GE products for years and never had a problem. this one has a problem with the lock on the lid. very up set.

CynVill 11/15/2020

We recently had to update our old washer and walked into a new tech savvy line of washers. Extremely hesitant and almost decided to just get our old washer repaired because these new ones have many buttons. My first 2 loads came out smelling amazing and washed. So let's see how many years this washer gives us. We purchased ours from American Freight.

Ag3927 11/13/2020

I love the agitation-a huge plus since my old machine didn't have one. It's smaller than my Maytag but I decided to get away from Maytag after issues with my last two machines. The display is nice and for the price this machine has been better than expected. My only complaint is that it is loud

Run from this machine - do not buy!!!

Debby 11/8/2020

The bucket size of this stainless machine is just eye candy. No agitator means no clean clothes. They tried to reinvent the wheel again, the drum is the only thing that moves and that is slow! Our clothes don't get clean, sheets have to be washed 1 piece at a time, everything ends up in a knot or in a ball. The spin is less impressive. The only way around this machine is to do several small loads or else your clothes don't even get wet. That what seems to work. Cycles are crazy long unless you use speedwash.

Biged61 9/11/2020

Washes clothes so much better than the front load I used for 7 years with nothing but mold problems, drain pump problems and stopping mid cycle problems. I love it as it gets out the ground in dirt my son brings home from his work installing cooling towers. Has large capacity to do comforters and pillows. Very quiet also and stays in place unlike my front load which wanted to go for a jog down the street. Great buy, very satisfied.

Best of all the poor choices available

Eyfankd 9/9/2020

We moved into a new house a year ago and I searched for months attempting to find a washer that would actually wash clothes and I had ruled out front loaders. The only way to get enough water to wash clothes is to always use the "Bulky" cycle regardless of what you are washing and there will still be barely enough water. The Deep Fill Option only works if you sit in front of the washer the entire cycle and keep pressing the button to add water. There are instructions to set the Deep Fill at the start of the cycle; however, they do not work on this model. I even called into GE Support and they verified. I load it as outlined in the book and make sure to only wash items of the same weight together, or the machine easily goes off balance. As others have mentioned it can shred items even when loaded properly. If you want a washer that will clean you need to buy a commercial upright Maytag that is old school; however, they cost at least $1000. Wish we would have kept our 25-year-old Kenmore when we moved.

What I was looking for.

mzzj54 9/2/2020

It had all the features I wanted. I wanted an updated "old school" agitator machine that has a quick cycle. I didn't need all the new bells and whistles, although this one has many more than the 20 year old machine it replaced. I wanted a machine large enough to wash a kind size comforter, which is does. It is quite noisy at the fill and beginning of the wash cycle.

TAMF 8/30/2020

I love that it has an agitator, I love all of the features and cycles. It washes my clothes very well. I dislike the glass lid. I am 5'2" and can not reach the bottom. I bought a matched set washer and dryer and they don't match. They are not the same height and cannot be adjusted to be the same height. That is very disappointing and ascetically bothering.

Jude8 8/5/2020

This is an attractive washing machine and is super efficient with many cycles. The clothes come out really clean and has a deep fill choice to add more water. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasnt so noisy. Luckily my washroom is far from my living area. I wouldnt recommend this machine if it was in a kitchen or hallway closet due to the noise.
