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.

Wine head 7/17/2020

Just received, only used twice. So far so good. I like that it has a large tub and that you can put pillows and blankets and small rugs without rubber backing in it. The stay fresh feature will come in handy too. In the past I have had to leave the door open. Still might until I feel I can trust it. So far I really like the set and hope for many years for this work horse.

Dvasc 7/16/2020

I love my new washer! It is very practical and silent. It is also great that they thought of placing an antibacterial microband to help get rid of the mildew/misty odors. You no longer have to leave the door open, unless you chose to. I love how sleek and stylish it looks. The WiFi app is also convenient to let you know when the wash cycle will end and when it has ended!

GE Washer GFW550SSNWW

Hurttmom 7/15/2020

It seems to be a good washing machine. I don't like the fact that there is no light in it, and it is little loud when doing the final spin. But I love the WiFi enabled-feature - it's so great to look at my phone and see if the wash is done. You are also able to start the washer when you're not at home (I haven't done this yet - but I know I will soon!). Very simple controls

I absolutely love my new front load washer. It's quiet and has a ton of features. Most favorite feature is the Ultravent System that clean the gasket to remove possible odors. Also have the matching dryer as well and it works like a charm too. Very satisfied with this purchase and highly recommend GE brand!

DorothyMA 7/14/2020

Love the washer-it does a good job. However, with my previous washers I have been able to wash the bathroom throw rugs with rubberizer backing. With my new washer, I have a problem. After spinning even with this adjusted as high as possible, the rugs are still soaked and just pour water when they are removed from washer. I a dissapointe because the washer does such a good job otherwise.

Ultra quiet

Vangie53 7/11/2020

I wasn't sure that I would like a front load washer, I didn't know how it could get the clothes clean with so little water. I went in the store thinking I was going to buy a Samsung washer and dryer but then I saw a picture of a General Electric washer and dryer. I had my old set for a very long time and decided to go with General Electric. I'm so glad I did, the washer has a feature that I really wanted and I didn't even know it. (Ultra fresh vent) I really didn't want WiFi but that's ok.

I've had the washer only a few days and it's wonderful. Whoever says don't get a front load washing machine has not tried this one. It's very quiet and my clothes come out clean. They are not wadded you like the top washer I had before. I did change the door to open right hand but that was no problem. I recommend that any purchasing this washer to read the installation instructions and you should have no problems with it. I would receive this product.

EASY SETUP & NICE UNIT

SalamanderSam 7/11/2020

Replaced a 15 year old Front Loader with this set up. Impressions: spacious drum, easy to setup (including WiFi), easy to use. Didn't know why anyone would want a WiFi enabled washer until it gave me a 5 minute warning that my load was about to be complete and another alert that the load was complete.
