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.

Nothing special

Bonjelo 12/25/2020

Nothing special just an average dryer per today's standards. Like all new appliances expect to replace after 5 years when the planned obsolescence kicks in.

Large Capacity! Knob Operation Too Tight

AngEB 12/23/2020

Lots of drying options are great. I've had many dryers, but this is the first time l'll use the end-of-cycle signal feature, as this dryer has a low sound option. The heat setting knob is way too difficult to turn. Do not purchase this dryer if you have weakness in your hand. You gave to grip the knob as though you are openning a tight, slippery bottle cap. Otherwise, high heat setting gets really hot and dries clothes quickly.

Quiet and Efficient

allen127 12/23/2020

As I would expect for a company that has been making motor mechanisms for decades, I find this unit quiet and efficient. The feature settings are numerous, and overall I like the unit. I subtract one star on the rating, due to the only negative to the unit to date, and that is, the lint catcher, located in the bottom of the door opening, when full, overflows into that door opening and is the first thing you have to deal with before removing any items. It's not a huge problem, but noticeable.

Works okay, but takes forever to dry towels

Rocky35 12/20/2020

Overall, I do like the simplicity, features, and look of the dryer, but compared to the one it is replacing it takes quite a while for it to do larger loads or towels compared to the last one. The rigid ducting is brand new and clear, so it is not due to that and everything else (besides the dryer itself) checks out. It routinely takes close to two hours or more on the timed setting (old LG took about 40 minutes) for larger loads or anything with towels to dry on the highest heat setting and the laundry when removed from the dryer, while somewhat warm isn't all that warm to the touch. I am not sure if it is just the design or if there is a fault with a thermistor or something. I know the gas burner is working, but it just doesn't produce as much heat as my old one. I will say that this one does produce a much stronger airflow than my old one, but the heat production just seems to pale in comparison. Everything else about the dryer I do like, I just wish it worked a little more efficiently (especially for a brand new dryer).

SC86 12/19/2020

Large drum capacity and does not take up too much space in my wash room. I like the many drying options. Works great and I am so glad I purchased this dryer. Replaced a Samsung that took up more space with less dryer capacity.

It's a basic dryer and it does what it should

dorcaf 12/18/2020

I had to find a gas dryer to fit in a tight spot to replace my broken 13 year old dryer. This GE was a good fit and provided all I needed which is to say it's your basic dryer. It's fairly quiet, and works quickly to dry my clothes. I'm not a huge fan of the design. The top is slightly sloped so less room to place folded clothes on top of the machine. I also don't particularly like the way the door opens to the side. I find my dry clothes easily fall out onto the floor. I truly miss my old dryer door that opened from the top down. Oh well....

Dryer review

NancyKO 12/16/2020

The new dryer is working out great. Many features and quiet when it runs. Ease of loading, easy cleaning of filter and the tumbler lights up for good viewing. I wish I had the corresponding washer but if I win the prize I'll replace my Whirlpool appliances with new GE appliances first thing!

Failure 11 days after warranty expired -

Laudry mom 12/10/2020

Thermal fuse and dryer coils failed 11 days after the warranty expired. I purchased GE because my prior dryer (also GE brand) only needed service once in 24 years. I only replaced it because it was looking beat up externally. My new one needed service 13 months after purchase. If you buy, get the extended warranty - GE doesn't make them to last any more.

Absolute Waste of Money

ClubSalil 12/6/2020

Absolute waste of money. I have to run the 80 minute cycles twice for each laundry load - because the heater and fan for drying are pure garbage. Spend the $100 more and get the Whirlpool or Maytag.
