GE Summer Best For Less Kitchen and Laundry Package Rebate

Offer Expires: 7/23/2020 to 8/9/2020 Must be postmarked by: 9/9/2020

Receive up to a $500 rebate with purchase of 2 or more qualifying GE Appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 9/9/2020.

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.

Excellent dryer

Robertjs 7/31/2020

I love this dryer. Many different setting, depending on what you need, and it also senses when the cloths are dry. It's a large dryer and works fantasticly.Would strong recommend you purchase this. I have owned Samsung dryer in the past, and this unit far outshines my old dryer (which was only a little over a yr and a half old).

TE330 7/21/2020

Everything is off the wall bells and whistles with this new GE 5.0. Steam you name it, it has it. BUT- for some reason it will not get out wrinkles in synthetic fabrics: Golf shirts,Polo shirts,Board shorts/Golf shorts: it took me around 2.5-3 hours to actually get the wrinkles out and that was using the "Steam" 3 different times, I've tried, not everything but close.

Quiet Dryer!

Oldgardener 7/16/2020

We finally retired our 18+ year old Kenmore front load dryer and replaced it with the GE GFD85ESPNDG. Wow, what a difference in noise level and drying efficiency! I also love the dryer lint catcher as it holds a lot more lint and is easy to clean out. There are plenty of drying settings, too, and I like the musical tone alarm versus our old dryer's high pitched whine when a cycle ends.

SuperM 7/13/2020

I have both the stackable washer and dryer for my new house and so far, I am really pleased with everything. Ample space to fit all of my main laundry into one load. The smart features are great. I have it synced to my phone so I can check to see how long is left remaining, and it alerts you as it nears completion. This is helpful when I am out about running errands while I have a load of launder going. I haven't had it too long so I can't speak to longevity, etc, but so far haven't had any issues yet. It is also aesthetically pleasing!

I love the wifi - I didn't know if this would really be useful, but I get the notifications - on my Apple watch - when the cycle is within 5 minutes of being done and then when it is done. Then i get periodic reminder notifications if I leave it in there. It also keeps track of how many dryer sheets I have left! It does a great job drying my clothes too ;)
