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.

LEFONT 4/12/2021

If you haven't used a new washing machine for a while, this thing can be intimidating. Bit of learning curve to overcome. The LED display is so small, when it scrolls a message, you can't really read it. And, it's noisy! But after that, it works well, saves water, clothes are clean, all good. Just wish it was quieter.

Just Ok

Rmarie 3/28/2021

We purchased this washer for our Florida home to replace one that was here that failed. I just wanted a middle of the road washer without a lot of bells and whistles. It lives up to that but I have to run every load as a deep fill and deep rinse or the clothes aren't even covered with water! I have had other HE washers and have never had this issue.

This washer is a joke and IAM NOT laughing,the minimum agitator , too small, allows the cloths to go to one side of the washer, the basket bangs against the cabnett walls, it walks around untill it can't go any further, this washer is a peace of JUNCK ! I want my money BACK !

GE Agitator Washer

Bren28 2/16/2021

I love the agitator GE Washer! I have had a water saver for years and wanted to go back to an old fashioned agitator washer. I think it cleans better. I like the features that show specific laundry loads to select from. It is a good size that can handle small or heavy loads. It has medium noise which is to be expected but is not obnoxious.I would recommend it.
