GE Spring Best For Less Kitchen and Laundry Package Rebate

Offer Expires: 3/4/2021 to 3/17/2021 Must be postmarked by: 4/17/2021

Receive up to a $500 rebate with purchase of 2 or more qualifying GE Appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 4/17/2021.

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.

Lint catcher

KRN81 2/25/2021

The lint catcher doesn't catch's all the lint and when you open up the door there is usually a big clump of lint just sitting there. Not impressed.

Great color/features

Jasmint 2/25/2021

I love the blue color. It matched the rest of my house. I also love the steam feature to keep wrinkles away. The WiFi feature is awesome. The app tells me when my clothes are almost dry then messages me again when it's time to get them out. If I want them to continue on steam then I can have the dryer do so while I'm still on the couch or at work. I just use the app. The washer has a feature where you fill it with soap and then the washer automatically chooses how much your load needs. Love this!

Close but not quite....

johnny5isalive5 2/24/2021

Love the color(we got the blue one), the concepts, the bells, and whistles but it's all just a little flawed. As a dryer, it's fine, it dries clothes... unless you only put a couple of shirts in it and use the sensor drying, then they don't get all the way dry. According to the local tech where we bought it from that's because the sensors are all the way in the front of the dryer and if you don't have a full load where the clothes are rubbing against those sensors, the dryer assumes the load is dry. I think I got a bad dryer as it has a loud clunking, almost hammer sound while it's running. We're waiting on the tech to come back with a new blower motor (if I recall that's what he is replacing) The app is another "close but not quite" situation. Since I've had the dryer (about 3 weeks now I think) there have been numerous updates but I'm not sure what they've improved. It takes 17 seconds on average for the app to load. Way too long in today's tech space. It's a very limited app in terms of functionality and mostly serves as a read-only look at what is happening now, and how many loads you've done. The Dryer Sheet counter doesn't function, it just keeps the same number of sheets showing every load. I assume that it should be subtracting one each time we run a cycle. Hopefully, the loud sound gets fixed and our clothes, even the smaller loads, come out dry after the tech returns soon. PS, The flat blue paint scratches VERY easily. The plastic container of laundry soap scratched it just placing it on top... PPS - I have been featured on local news affiliates as a consumer tech expert over 100 times in the last 15 years, I'm pretty confident in my ability to judge a product.

The features are fun, when we added it to the wifi for the house my daughter and I were laughing all the way, it was easy and now we loving call it the NAG. When our clothes are dry, it lets me know on my phone, when they've been in there 30 minutes it tells me that too!

This is our third front loading laundry set. First GE. So far it's been great. Large capacity and extremely fast drying. I think it has to do with the volume of air it can handle. Large surface area on the lint filter. Never is completely covered with lint no matter what the load is.
