GE Memorial Day Appliance Package Rebate

Offer Expires: 5/14/2020 to 6/3/2020 Must be postmarked by: 7/3/2020

Receive up to a $200 rebate with purchase of 3 or more qualifying GE Appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 7/3/2020.

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.

Extra Large

fnotneyrod 5/5/2020

We had to remove doors to get it into the laundry area. Once installed, atop the washer, the dryer controls are too high to see clearly and require a stool. In order to use WiFi you need to purchase additional components at a cost of $50 each, for the washer and the dryer. Otherwise the dryer works great.

Good but don't buy for the Wifi features

jrutkowski 5/5/2020

Yes my closed get dried faster, but the app is totally useless for a family. We have 4 peopel doing laundry. Whoever adds the appliances to the app last deletes them from the other users account. No family Sharing. And the soilution to use one account and share hte password is not safe.

I love the quick cycles, height, storage and reminders when it is complete. This is also a field test unit.

MichaelPlano 4/23/2020

Purchased to replace an 8 year old LG washing machine and dryer. Very disappointed in the durability and went back to a brand I believe in although it was priced a little higher.

Claudothy 4/19/2020

This is our second washer and dryer set and after one day I'm already impressed. Granted our first set was from a yard sale previously used. Don't they work fine for 7 years plus however long before we purchased them. But enough about that. This set of GE washer and dryer has been everything we expected and more I love the sanitize feature especially in this time of the plague as I work in retail and I'm considered essential. I can come home from work and only wash the clothes I wore or because of the higher capacity can wash and dry a bigger load. I haven't tested out all the features including the Wi-Fi setting but only after a handful of loads I'm already impressed. Well worth the money I spent on them.

This is amazing dryer! Can dry even the biggest loads in 40-60 minutes! Had many different features including a clothing sanitizing option in which is perfect for healthcare workers! It can connect to wifi and a application on your phone which is new age and awesome.

Giant Dryer

MeganLIndy 4/14/2020

This Dryer is huge and it dries our clothes in no time at all. The lint trap actually traps the link unlike our last dryer. We are very happy with it.
