GE Memorial Day Savings Rebate

Offer Expires: 5/19/2022 to 6/8/2022 Must be postmarked by: 7/8/2022

Receive up to a $300 rebate with purchase of 2 or more qualifying GE, GE Profile, Haier, or Cafe Appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 7/8/2022.

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.

Washer Link is no-brainer

Moody15 4/5/2022

My dryer stays on washer link 100% of the time! Washer and dryer are stacked and I am 5'2" so reaching the dial is easy, but I can't always see what option is selected. With washer link, all I ever have to do is hit the start button and I know my clothes are on the right setting and I don't have to worry about it!

DKindel 3/26/2022

Dryer works well, much faster and quieter than my previous one. Does a great job of not over-drying the laundry. One word of caution, don't bother with the side vent kit, it's a pain to install, doesn't stay in place, and doesn't actually save much space in the back.

Arquioso 2/21/2022

We upgraded from a 15 year old washer/ dryer set, so maybe my bar was low, but this dryer works great! Our clothes are dry and fluffy in half the time our old dryer took, and there isn't a much heat lost through the side of the unit, either.

Great washer, came with a faulty part!

New to OK 2/14/2022

Husband sells appliances as a career, we purchased the washer and dryer pair for our new home. Washer was delivered and installed, faulty electronics, kept tripping the breaker as soon as pump was initiated. We reported the issue, took 3 weeks for the part to come in and repair was done in good time. Our sales provider as well as service went smoothly, brand new washer with faulty electronics was not expected but rectified. Washer is great! so many features and clothes are clean and spun amazingly! Love the load and go feature.

Destroys clothes with drawstrings

awm129 1/14/2022

The lint trap is designed in such a way that drawstrings are very easily caught in the grate. This causes clothes to overly twist and can lead to breakage and damaging of other clothes in the load. We've had the unit for about 6 months now and have lost many items with drawstrings. The app is somewhat useless. It takes a long time to establish comms with all ge appliances in your household before it lets you do anything with any particular appliance. For example, in order to check how much time is left on my dryer, I need to wait for the app to connect to my water heater?! But I can view recipes while I wait I guess? It's a weird app. Once I'm in, there is very little I can do with the app beyond see how much time is left. I can't, for example, start up a stopped dryer so my clothes don't wrinkle.

Great Product - Poor App

Joe 2022 1/12/2022

Very good product overall with great features, though probably too many. It would have gotten 5 stars were it not for the poorly designed SmartHQ app, which is supposed to provide wireless connectivity. Wireless app is not good (SmartHQ), and was not properly designed to work with iOS. It consistently crashes during setup, therefore cannot be used at all.

Well I do like how the dryer operated, however after having the dryer for 2 weeks it would only dry for 2 to 3 minutes and stop. I do have GE Repair coming to fix it. However it being a new unit it should never have went out like that. As long as it's fixed I'd still buy another
