GE Kitchen and Laundry Package Rebate

Offer Expires: 9/30/2021 to 10/20/2021 Must be postmarked by: 11/20/2021

Receive up to a $200 rebate with purchase of 2 or more qualifying GE Appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 11/20/2021.

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.

Firechief24 3/23/2021

So far we love this unit. We replaced a 16 year old front loader Frigidaire with this new GE unit. We were a bit scared of the electric controls, but found out very fast how easy they are to navigate!! Very quiet running and I like the HQ Smart notification App (I wish the would make the HQ Smart App available for Android Tablets and not just cell phones) . The only issue that I have is the cycle will end before the laundry is fully dried

DirtyLaundry 3/23/2021

This unit is so efficient that it takes no time at all the get clothes dry. We don't dry everything because we prefer air drying, and outside is even better than inside. However, anything we do put in the dryer is finished quickly and quietly. Perhaps we like that feature best of all!

Great drying options

CYFI 3/23/2021

The dryer is so much better and more energy than my previous dryer (10 years old). The options for various types of materials is a big plus in saving time and money. One thing I really like is the lint screen. It has two surface areas to capture lint. This allows the dryer to be capture more lint because the surface area for lint capture is double that of an old lint catcher.

Garetts Dryer 3/22/2021

Overall the machine is exactly what I wanted. The only complaint is the dial's manual "click" lags behind the lighted setting when turning the dial. Nice to get a notification when the laundry is 5 minutes from being complete!

A Modern Machine!

newmom3 3/22/2021

We love our new dryer. It fit perfectly into our tight spot (stackable), with room to spare and fits so many more clothes than our old dryer. And guess what - it works! The lint cleanout is a little cumbersome to clean, but seems to work well in collecting lint. Overall we are very pleased with this purchase! Highly recommend for anyone that needs a stackable unit.

Quiet dryer!

Cb71 3/19/2021

I bought our new GE dryer to replace our existing Kenmore (2002) dryer. I read features on an online website that specialized in appliances. I purchased it via HomeDepot.com. My wife said it was easy to use and it did a much better job of drying try than our old Kenmore. I downloaded the SmartHQ app, and I had to search for the instructions on the GE website to configure the wifi on the dryer. It took several tries in order to configure it but I managed to communicate with the app. Now, it let's us know on both of our smartphones when the dryer finishes it's drying cycle.

Bought bc of price

Kahrlly 3/17/2021

We bought our GE appliances bc they weee priced out fairly. We have never had this brand before so we gave it a shot. The Dryer lint filter (basket) broke in the the first month. Lint finds it's way around the door and right above the top of where the filter slides in. It gets on freshly dried clothes,  making it a hassle to empty out.

Bdk2 3/16/2021

This dryer completes a load much quicker than my old dryer. Like the layout and features. The bottom of the door could be a little higher, won't clear my basket when I open the door have to move out of way first. The bottom pedestal would take care of that.
