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.

AWFUL

11/16/2018

Came as a bundle of appliances from the builder with our new home. The motherboard had to be replaced immediately upon moving into our home. I had to wait 10 days for the part to arrive meanwhile my laundry is piling up. It rattles and shakes like its about to take off when it spins - and YES its been leveled and adjusted by a GE technician. Recently when a load had finished washing some of the clothes were still DRY How does that happen? I had to re-wash the entire load. Not impressed at all.

Learning curve

9/24/2018

This Machine like other Tech equipmnt 2018 requires a learning curb. My niece/nephew 20+ whiz with I-phones care less bout laundry. Mom sister 55+ do most of laundry but New Tech confuses them. New machines unnecessarily comes with Lots of Bells Whistles. If companies would keep things simple KISS probably less complaints. But thats not the way of the world 3mos. still learning. Poor Mom frustrated. But well press through. IMO good machine just that durn learning curve.

Simple

8/16/2018

This washer was an option offered to me by AHS to replace broken Samsung front loader. I decided to try a top loader again without an agitator. So far it has been working well and I can fit more clothes in the washer. My comforters come out cleaner. It is a little noisier than the airplane landing sound from the Samsung...about the same decibel if rated. So far so good. I wish there was a place for detergent placement.

The worse

4/29/2018

I have owned front loaders and top before but this one is the worse ever. I got it as a builders option. It sounds like a plane landing in your home its not user friendly and it is tearing up some of my shirts that I have had for many years and washed on other machines. Dont waste your money save up to get a better one.

This washer is no good

4/20/2018

This washer is too flimsy and does not handle mixed loads well. It walked itself in front of the laundry room door on two occasions and I almost had to damage my walls to get it open. Also it does not do well with small loads. It does not spin all the water out. The drain and spin setting doesnt do it either. Ive had more headaches with this washer than any other Ive owned The loads I wash are standard size. I am not overloading this machine Would never recommend

Not up to par

4/1/2018

Noisy. Gets unbalanced very easily and you cant simply open top to stop and rearrange. You have to press different buttons to stop an to unlock lid. Then when you restart it goes through the complete rinse cycle AGAIN. Should have never have bought it through homebuilder because it was definitely the cheapest model.

0/11/2018. Bought as New as a ScratchDent

1/11/2018

01/11/2018. On this dateI just bought this machine. it didnt come with owners manual...I was given one from a total different machine. Ok the machines run basic the same. Ok what I need is the time tables of the cycles of the machine. It does not have fill cups for the detergents or fabric softener. Which is ok. For my old machine didnt have. Im interested in the time tables for the different types of cycle commnations.example on our first use I did a load of blue jeans socks that produce lint dark in color using deep fill ex heavy.extra deep rinse. It seem like the wash cycle ran half hour?? then finial spin rinse seem short yet the spin the jeans were spun out real good. no heavy extra water.. Ok thats my question. Thank You Mouse #1
