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 and 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.

Quick drying

Submitted by LKo5 - This dryer dries my full load of towels in an hour!!!! My old machine took at least 3-4 hours! Game changer. Good options for different drying settings and able to customize. Only complaint is the removable lint trap not so easy to clean it out and the closures easily break.

Great Features! Love the Phone alerts!

Submitted by CHodgkins - When I purchased the matching washer and dryer unit, I was unaware that they had the ability to connect to WiFi and send alert messages when the load is about to complete as well as having been in the dryer for up to 30 minutes of the wrinkle free setting where it keeps turning and flipping the clothes to keep them from sitting in one spot and getting creased!

Submitted by Senthil Siva - This machine broke within a week time and I am now going through very hard time to get it replaced.

It is been three week and I am shuttling between Costco, Installation Team by third party, Technical support by third party(again by Costco) and GE crew. I am spending hours and hours with all the people to this replaced. Don't buy this piece of junk. Now it is back ordered. Never ever do this mistake.

Great Dryer - exceeded expectations

Submitted by MikeTheGroundhog - The dryer works very well. It is easy to operate and is quiet. We've had it for nearly an month and have had no problems. The installers did a great job. My only complaint is that the alarm signaling that the load is finished to a little too quiet.

Capacity!

Submitted by MacZ - Love the capacity and rather lower noise level when on. "Sending" how wet stuff still is works okay. For bedding to come out really dry, we put it in "towel" mode. One criticism would be the end of cycle alarm is not loud enough (at least for us having the laundry room not very close to where we hang out).

Submitted by saladd - This dryer is very large and accommodates many towels, sheets, and other linens at 1 time . It has many settings. The settings can be customized to just about anything you would dream of doing. It is energy efficient. It is extremely quiet. A very large window in the door so that you can see what is going on with your clothes. I cannot imagine what more you would want in a dryer.

It's our first front loading washer and I am loving how large capacity it is to wash our comforters! No more laundromats for me! The ability to use the app and be notified when the wash is finished is a huge plus!

Submitted by anissad - I've only had these machines for a couple weeks. I love them. They wash extremely well as well as dry fast even within the washer, but I do use the dryer. I have yet to completely understand the vent system and how long that's suppose to run, but I haven't detected any smell of mold using the washer and didn't use the vent setting. So far its great!
