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.

Ajturner2016 7/15/2020

I have had the dryer just over a week and it gets clothes, towels, blankets and rugs dry in less time than my previous front loader and does not seem be be super hot while running or using much more energy. I appreciate the energy savings and price point on this dryer, I would buy again.

Ms KW 7/13/2020

The dryer worked good for about 2 weeks until we heard a loud pop and the belt snapped. No authorized service repair in our area. So I've requested a replacement through Costco where I purchased it. Praying we have better luck with the replacement.

Love this dryer

Mer77 7/13/2020

A couple of years ago my old dryer died and I wanted a big capacity dryer that did not have the filter on top. This was what we chose and ordered a propane gas model. Used it happily for a few years and recently we moved to an area where the propane dryer was not appropriate. We ordered the electric version of the very same dryer and it was here waiting for us when we moved in. The filter is at the bottom of the door which I LOVE, and it works perfectly every time. Matches the GE washer we moved with us. Happy customer.

I have used my GE for 3 weeks and haven't had any issues. I select my settings and it dries them perfectly. I love the variety of settings for the clothing types. The extended tumble is wonderful!! I know this might sound weird but I love that my lent trap is inside the dryer and not on top.
