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.

Very Pleased

12/8/2018

I bought the washer and dryer a few months ago after reading the mixed reviews I held off writing one as I wanted to make sure I wasnt jinxed My condo was built in the early 90s and the laundry room was too small to contain a modern day washer and dryer set up water heater takes up a big chunk of the space so I needed to make the best use of the space stacking was the way to go. This combo works perfectly. Clothes come out clean and I like the sensor performance on the dryer. It drys clothes perfectly. I was also irritated by the bunching up when drying sheets but using dryer balls solves the problem. So very happy with both units and hopefully will not encounter any issues moving forward. The only negative thing is the price but I waited for a sale and was able to find each piece $200.00 off.

Previous compact front loader would do the Hula when ever in spin. This machine is unbelievable in its spin cycle. Always smooth no hopping around. Model had negative reviews but this machine appears to be a generation II. We have no complaints. As said Better Than Expected.

Doesnt spin close Very well

11/16/2018

Ive had nothing but issues with the spin cycle from day on. The clothes are rarely completely spun out. Ive tried everything moving close around doing different load sizes and sometimes it will spin the clothes out all the way but most of the time the clothes are really damp. My old washer never did this.

detergent drawer leaks

9/25/2018

The washer/ dryer pair we purchased looks great and has good cycle options however water is consistently running out of the front of the detergent drawer typically during what seems to be the fabric softener cycle. The compartment is poorly designed so that his happens the Bosch compact machine we had in the past had a much deeper lip that kept this from happening. It is too bad because otherwise the machine is great.

extremely Quiet sturdy washer

9/16/2018

I have only had this one day but I did laundry the day it was delivered. It was so quiet had to see if it was working. Never had a front loader and the only down point is how low the front loader door is. I was so excited to find a smaller machine that I didnt realize the low door.This has become a negative factor as I have a bad low back. I notice that if you have a 27 or larger machine you are saved with a pedestal addition. I wish we folks with smaller machines and spaces fo them would be considered with the same luxury. I will need to find a solution. So far the machine washed the clothes well and the spin cycle almost left the clothes dry I hope I can find a pedestal or something else to fix the low door.

Door lock problems

8/2/2018

This machine worked great right up until the warranty expired of course. The door lock has broken and though it should be an easy fix to replace the lock mechanism this part has been backorered for over 6 months now. Im not the only one with the door lock malfunction problem just read around for other reviews. It seems to be a common issue and the fact that GE cant produce a proper replacement for it tells me something is wrong. Id prefer to not add this machine to a landfill especially since its only 3.5 years old but waiting months to get a part that seems faulty to begin with is unacceptable.

The saga of the washer

7/18/2018

I purchased the stackable washer and dryer. Had to wait over 4 weeks to receive the stacking kit so was without ability to do laundry. This washer clangs and bangs and churns and makes so many weird noises. Now the door switch works intermittently which necessitates opening and closing several times until the switch connects and washer starts. Waiting over six weeks for the part.

Rarely able to spin

5/6/2018

This washer is only able to complete the spin cycle about once out of every 5 loads. Ive tried lots of different things: pausing and re-arranging bigger loads smaller loads loads of similar sized items had the guy com back and make sure it was properly levelled. Nothing consistently works. It will get to the spin cycle show 10 minutes left on the clock and will stay there for nearly an hour trying to spin. It seems to give up even when the load is fairly well balanced. Eventually it gives up completely and says the cycle is complete. The clothes come out so wet that I can easily wring water out of the towels and washcloths and socks. The load will take over an hour and a half to dry. Giving up and getting a Bosch.

Leaks

4/5/2018

I bought this 2months ago and had the repair man twice. Three problems. One the detergent dispenser draw leaked. Number two there is a noise when it spins out. And last we cannot run the spin on high because it shakes to much. The draw was replaced and still leaks occasionally when you add just a little bit more of detergent than it likes. We were told that there is nothing that can be done to live with it. And we were told not to run the machine on high spin because it is not on a concrete floor but on the wooden first floor. It does was the clothes well and uses minimum water.
