GE Gold Medal Savings Kitchen and Laundry Package Rebate

Offer Expires: 7/22/2021 to 8/11/2021 Must be postmarked by: 9/11/2021

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.

I love how roomy it is, the wrinkle out cycle and that it tells me when my clothes have been in the dryer a while. I tend to forget what I'm doing so it's a great reminder.

Great Dryer but poor quality control

fourvols 5/8/2021

We love the washer and dryer but when we turned on the dryer it was making noise as it turned. The appliance repairman said it was a bad part for the drum. We ordered the part and got it in. once that was fixed he said that the blower motor bearings were very noisy and were not greased (same problem as the other part) and that would have to be replaced. We working to get it exchanged for a new one. 2 major issues with a new unit is too much.

HonestConsumer 5/5/2021

This dryer has been great. It has more options that I could ever use, but just the standard features are worth the price. The connection to wifi has been an unexpectedly useful feature since it reminds me when I forget that the load is dry. Easy set up too.

Not reliable

Max12345 4/25/2021

On a brand new dryer: - control knob rotates with friction and squeaking. Response: it's expected - hum 2 minutes after turning on. GE replaced the motor. - Now after they fixed the motor humidity sensor broke and dryer turns off immediately in all modes other than timed dry. Every time expect to wait two weeks for the appointment.

KYFamily7 4/24/2021

We were very hesitant to buy due to cost but we have had it for 3 months but it works and its great. It has a huge lent trap. It is huge for comforters that we couldn't dry before. The refresh option is great to get the wrinkles out. Then the app is a bonus it alerts you when it's done.

Great GE front loader

Cldalesa 4/19/2021

I have only had this for about a month but so far, I am very happy. I went from a very old top loader amana. The dryer was not able to be repaired, so we got a new set. Saw this set was rated highly in good housekeeping. Great capacity, clothes come out of washer very dry. There is an alert if you close the washer after the load is done and emptied that reminds you to turn on the vent system. This does not alert if you leave the door open. So far no mildew smells.

AirBear 4/7/2021

We replaced a 15 year old set by a different manufacturer with this set. It dries so much faster. The link feature works well, even if it only saves me about 2 seconds. The lint screen looks like it will catch 99% of lint so hopefully this will reduce the amount that gets by at clogs the vent line. It has plenty of capacity for practically anything.

mom0f4boys 4/6/2021

This dryer dries fast and holds a lot of clothes and large items well. I love the app that reminds me that my clothes are finished. The only issue that at 5'3", I have a hard time with the controls when stacked. I can just push the power buttons and I have problems seeing the light for the selected cycle when at the top like "mixed load" and "quick dry".

Great dryer, panel alignment issues

Daniel Kr 4/6/2021

We bought this to match our GE washer and love everything about this dryer. It is perfect and drys clothes a not time flat. One issue is that the panel where the controls are does not align up to the outside metal of the dryer perfectly. the lower part of the control panel sticks out from the case and gives a bulge. You can push it in and it will just stick right back out ruining the lines of the dryer.

I am very happy with this purchase. The only complaint I have thus far is the door latch, which was already broken during the first delivery, is plastic. I feel a Dryer of this cost should at least have a metal latch like the Washers do. But, overall, good choice.

This dryer is a game changer! Not only does it dry my clothes twice as fast as my previous machine, but it also reminds me to take them out before they wrinkle right on my smart phone! And if I can't get there right then, it allows me to have it tumble with no heat till I can! I also love the feature that refreshes wrinkled clothing with steam. Wish I had this years ago!
