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.

GE Washer

9/13/2018

My husband and I purchased this washer about two months ago and it has been great Definitely an upgrade from our previous washer with new features including time of cycle. The Quick Wash feature is great for several small sets of work uniforms as well as the Tumble Care to occasionally spin the load after the cycle is complete to reduce wrinkling. The other many features I havent had chance or reason to use yet. Only minor complaint was the initial spin cycle which sounds like a jet plane taking off...but its worth it because the clothes/items are barely damp making drying easy

Tub Odor

9/6/2018

This product was supplied by my home warranty service after my previous 12 yr old front loading washing machine needed replacement. It offers convenient options and pleasant chimes when a cleaning cycle is complete however there is a fair amount of vibration- most concerning is the tub odor that seems to pervade the laundry room which I never previously had and am uncertain how to treat. If I were to move Im not sure Id take this appliance with me

I have had this machine for almost 3 months. I have washed clothes bedding blankets towels rags etc. I have used 2 other machines in the past 10 years which were top loaders. I hated them both. They do not clean my clothes without an agitator. My friend convinced me to try a top loader and we picked this GE model and the matching dryer. I cant say enough about this machine The sanitize setting makes my whites and white socks soooo clean I This is the best washing machine I have ever owned
