GE Spring Best For Less Kitchen and Laundry Package Rebate

Offer Expires: 3/4/2021 to 3/17/2021 Must be postmarked by: 4/17/2021

Receive up to a $500 rebate with purchase of 2 or more qualifying GE Appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 4/17/2021.

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.

All loads dry evenly and in a reasonable amount of time. The sensor works well, as load is dry when indicator goes off. Items are not all wound up inside the larger pieces like with old dryer.

Excellent Large Dryer

Vermonter52 3/4/2021

This dryer is great, I love it. Clothes seem to dry quickly and are less wrinkled even after it stops. One thing I would change is the design of the baffles! The design of them allows small coins (pennies or dimes) to slip in underneath then and then in order to get them out you have to take the top off and remove the fins. Poor design on that part. I also recommend the pedestals which give great storage underneath and no bending to access the dryer.

Smart Dryers Are The New Frontier

Jezze 3/3/2021

I love this dryer! Living in a two level home hearing my dryer go off and remembering to go downstairs and fold was always a challenge. This dryer makes that task so much easier. It is wi-fi connected and I get an alert on my phone when my dryer has 5 mins left, is done, or if I left it in there for a long time. It also has a huge drum and fries everything effectively. Awesome.

Door hinges

TomB8189 3/1/2021

I love the look and the functions or both the washer and the dryer. The issue I have is that the door hangs slightly too low which is hard on closing. The hinges are not adjustable and I believe will ultimately end up breaking...

Wonder-Washer!

Drockwell 2/27/2021

The GE UltraFresh washer is a wonder-washer! We did a lot of research with national reviews to determine the best washers, and decided on the GE UltraFresh vent system due to the newest technology to keep the washing machine free excess condensation that leads to mold. The machine vents when not in use to keep the tub at the same humidity as the room. The gasket is perforated to allow moisture to escape. There are other features that make this washing machine better than any other on the market. On top of all that, the clothes come out clean and smell fresh with each load. Even when we have to wash our dogs' blankets, they come out clean, fresh, and without dog hair! We are very impressed with the multiple settings, quietness, and gentleness on our clothes. This truly is a wonder-washer!

No need to buy up

Happy Customer23 2/25/2021

We were originally set on the model that's is a step up to this one. However, there were none in stock at every store we went to. Finally we stopped by Lowes and we mistook this model for the one we wanted, and the associate told it was in stock and ready for delivery. Once we realized it was the basic model the associate informed us that the only thing we were missing out on was the finish we wanted and the steam feature for keeping the laundry fresh. After being a little apprehensive about settling for something else, we realized these were amazing as is and the plain white finish looked amazing once installed.

Love the capacity, the features and the look of the machine. The lint trap design is the best I have seen. The only drawback for us is that when the machines are stacked, the dial and controls are very high, and tilted backward just enough that make it a bit difficult to read.
