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.

With other dryers I had to turn it on multiple times. With this dryer, no such problem. The appliance is effective, efficient, reasonably quiet, and the wifi notification means I don't have to remember not to forget my clothes. A++

Best Dryer Ever!

Brokedown 1/11/2021

What can I say this dryer is the best dryer on the market. The features like wifi and integrated steaming feature are amazing. Also the washer and dryer link is very cool. Dryer already knows what setting to use based on what you wash. Worth the money.

SanLan 1/10/2021

We are very happy with our Dryer, gentle yet effective! Works wonderfully without over-drying or harming clothes. Im pretty short so I was worried about stacking on top of the washer and being able to reach the buttons, but with the Washer link and built-in Wifi its not an issue at all. I almost never need to reach up to the buttons. The blue is very unique and modern. Don't hesitate, worth every penny!

Lint vent is horrible

J mom 1/9/2021

Dryer works well my only complaint is that there is always lint on top of the lint vent when I open the dryer. Not sure why it pools on top and doesn't get into the lint vent.

Dryer vent is horrible

lbkinflorida 1/7/2021

Thus far, two months in, the dryer itself seems to run well. The cycles are VERY long, 2+ hours but the sensors do their job. This is in no way a quiet dryer so keep that in mind. The real issue for us is the dryer vent that catches lint. When we had the dryer installed, we put on new hoses and had the vents professional cleaned from the roof down. The lint catch is a HORRIBLE design and other reviews confirm it. The filter clogs with lint, instead of properly trapping it away from the clean clothes. I empty it every single time and it still fails to catch the lint properly. Further, because of moisture, lint also surrounds the entire seem of the dryer door and that has to be cleaned off as well. Essentially, lint is everywhere! Terrible, terrible design flaw. Why??? Dryer vents have been the same for decades. Why create one that is so flawed?? Every load requires me to vacuum out the tiny holes and I even bought a special vacuum attachment to get into the dryer itself, behind the lint catch because so much gets by it and ends inside the drum itself. I'm doing laundry for two people here, not a family of five. It may not seem like a big deal but clean clothes getting covered in lint and vacuuming every time I dry a load...no thanks!

Works well but smart support is lacking

SneakyPete0915 1/6/2021

As the title states the dryer works very well in a traditional sense but the smart function and app are anything but a remote display. You cannot turn it on remotely, you cannot set a mode/program remotely. We previously had a top of the maytag that was several hundred less but was just as capable. Do we recommend this item and the beautiful color, YES. If given the chance to buy again or save the money to buy the maytag... We'd buy the maytag. If same price, we'd buy this one.

From blankets, coat, mats, and delicate items. This machine has done them all. Everything has come out beautifully. Couldn't ask for more. It is a beast so make sure you have the space. It's deeper than most so keep door swing clearance in mind.

Jwinter14 1/1/2021

I love this dryer! Size and function is great. My only issue is that the lint is collecting on top of the lint trap at the door, so when you open the door there's usually a couple piles of lint on top. The lint trap seems to be working fine, so still trying to figure out why some lands on top.

Not good if you have long haired animals

gmanforkeeps 12/28/2020

I enjoy most of the features of the unit, I made my stackable and found that during washer spinning the top cover is loose and makes one heck of a vibrating racket like the house is coming down. I ended up putting a stack of pillows on top of it which seemed to calm the rattle. I also have issues with the filter assembly, I did see another review who ran into the same issue as me. The dryer filter does not accept animal hair. When you open the door expect to see long hair across the top of the filter that you must remove before you remove your clothes or filter unit. It also generates small flat/round balls of lint? dust? hair? I see them deposited in the dryer and elsewhere. I selected it for the capacity.

Fantastic dryer with deluxe features

Andy and Marlo 12/28/2020

We love our new GE dryer. It's especially nice when W-Fi paired with the GE washing machine on the app. We had our washer dryer combo installed on the pedestals and it's super easy to select cycles. Plus, the app lets to know when the cycle is finishing up. My favorite feature is that when paired with the other machine via the app, it sends a push notification to your phone. This reminds you to unload and not be left with musty clothing. Plus you finish the job more efficiently.
