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.

Bevegr 5/13/2020

The features I like best are the big dryer tub and the buzzer! Sometimes, I'm in another part of my house, I don't always hear when the dryer goes off, the buzzer on this dryer is loud enough I can hear it when the clothes are done! Also, the tub is large enough I can dry two sets of queen size sheets or a queen size comforter easily, and they don't look bunched up. I am very satisfied with this dryer!

Variety of choices for different loads!

lisa1216 5/12/2020

We love our new GE dryer for the mere fact that we don't have to keep drying the same load over and over. I can dry the bedspread and sheets all together without having to deep checking for dampness. They all dry the first time so we have time to make the bed early instead of just before we go to bed!!

Mama Matthew 5/12/2020

I purchased this dryer to match the washer I purchased at the same time. I had wanted to purchase one with door which opened down, instead of to the side, but decided I liked the look of this one well enough to stick with a side door opening. I also like having the lint filter in the front of the machine, so as I load my clothes, I am always reminded to check the filter. My previous machine had a lint filter in the top at the rear of the machine, and I often forgot to check it, until I noticed that the dryer was not getting hot enough. It was an old machine, but it is always important to check the filter, so I like that feature. The large capacity matches my washer, and dries large or small loads equally well. I appreciate the various options for temperature control, and the variable chime volume. I also like the look of the matched set. I am completely satisfied this far.

AKLady 5/12/2020

The main reason, other than price, for purchasing this dryer is the LINT screen. Yes, the lint screen. It has no felt, so no chance of anything ripping on it ! I live that it is JUST a screen. Very easy to clean!!

sarahb8604 5/12/2020

When our dryer went out, we weren't looking for anything fancy. I read all the reviews and the only negative comments were due to the fact that it doesn't have sensors to determine when the closes have finished drying. With this model, the clothes in regular and large loads are thoroughly dried after one round, so it doesn't seem necessary to have a sensor. The dryer is very quiet and does the job so I'm a happy camper. I would definitely recommend it.

goblow 5/12/2020

So far i like it, the only problem I have is the door is very difficult to open and doesn't lay flat against the front. The delivery guys had to switch the door opening and put hinges on the left...ranther that on the right and I'm wondering if they didn't put it on the way it should be. It closes....but is extremely tight.

Jules9845 5/6/2020

I've had the dryer for about a month now. I love the filter at the door - nice and easy to clean. I tend to use the timer setting instead of moisture sensing. In general, in past machines I have found the moisture sensing feature makes the dryer take longer and leaves the clothes a bit more damp than I would like, so I don't bother with that anymore. So far, so good and I would recommend purchasing from Costco - great service and delivery.

Snek2020 5/6/2020

I came back to GE dryers after trying Whirlpool and I'm glad I did. This dryer is very quiet and gets my clothes dry on the first try!! I like the Optimal Dry setting that senses how damp the clothes are. Other great features are a front lint catcher and an end of cycle buzzer that you can turn on or off. A very solid dryer, I'm very happy with it.

I am extremely pleased with this dryer and recommend it to others. Love the lint filter too, lint remover is a breeze.

darlenec12345 5/5/2020

I like that it has different setting for the type of clothing need to be dried. Here are some of the settings such as, cotton, casual, delicate, air fluff, de-wrinkle, extended tumble, and time dry. I also like went your clothes are dry you can either have the signal to be on med, loud, or off. I keep it off when sleeping. With the various settings their are other settings. Attached is a picture with the setting I did not mentioned.

I love this dryer except for one feature. The large knob that must be turned to select the correct cycle is very hard for my arthritic hands to turn. I wish it pulled out for an easier turn, then could be pushed back in to start the dryer. Otherwise, it's great. I also love the lint filter!

I like this dryer

NikkiH 5/4/2020

This dryer was almost evicted on it's first day in my home. It has a feature that alerts you when your load is coming to an end - and OH MY GOODNESS was it extremely loud and aggravating. Fortunately, I read in the manual where you can elect to turn this feature off or down. Of course, it was OFF for me. Other than that, the dryer has been amazing. It catches lint really well. It gets my clothes nice and dry on the first load - far different from the Whirlpool dryer that it replaced. This was referred to me by one of the sales reps when I went to exchange a newly purchased Whirlpool set. It was certainly worth the exchange and upgrade.
