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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Basic Machine

2/16/2018

I bought this dishwasher to replace an older model that died on me. Ive been using for just over a month now. I just wanted basic with certain features. I couldnt find what I wanted and this was the closest. I can hear it run but its not too loud. I dont care if it runs 30-60-90 minutes for a cycle its washing so I dont have too. LIKES: with how it cleaned dishes with food still stuck to them not hard to program what you want during the washing cycle DISLIKES: even with heat on a lot of my dishes are still wet not a problem with my old dishwasher the bottom rack is not dish organizer friendly. There is a section where the grates are too far apart and if your dishes are sitting too low the spinner hits them every time around....very annoying. Im going to have to retro-fit a piece so this doesnt happen anymore. If you want a non-expensive unit this might be for you.

Redesign Sucks

2/16/2018

I really liked my old GE dishwasher died at the age of 12+ years so I looked to replace it with another GE besides my range and fridge are GE. I gotta say this redesigned GE dishwasher does not measure up to the old one. The placement of the silverware basket the time it takes to do a load and the fact that the dishes are never dry and the spacing of the tongs and it seems smaller then the old one.

Terrible dishwasher

1/25/2018

I bought this unit as a replacement for my previous GE dishwasher which lasted over 16 years. Big mistake. The quality of this machine is so poor. The interior design was clearly made by someone who never used a dishwasher. The posts holding dishes are too far apart to hold a variety of dishes bowls glasses mugs pots and pans securely. The gray interior is depressing and the latching mechanism is Plastic So disappointing GE What happened to the quality of made in America???

Thumbs Up - Clean Dishes - yeah

1/10/2018

I purchased this product after searching through many different reviews and for the features color and price. We were looking for a dishwasher that had a disposal feature in lieu of filtration that had good reviews and was within a budget amount. This washer fit the features and the price. One feature that I like is the sensor feature that senses how clean the dishes are. I was skeptical at using that feature. I went ahead and washed dishes out without removing food scraps and with the sensor on. That was the test. I was surprised that the dishes came out clean as they did. Excellent job. Would recommend.

Awesome Dishwasher

1/7/2018

This is a quite running dishwasher with a ton of storage. I like how they made the top rack that can hold larger cups without them falling over in mid wash. The bottom rack has a lot more room for pots and pans because of the placement of the utensils. The push button control panel gives plenty of options so you have the right setup for the load you need to wash. One last thing compared to the other dishwashers that I liked about this one was the double heating elements on both sides. The other dishwashers we looked only had one. The double heating element dries excellent and in a shorter amount of time than my last appliance. In summation I recommend purchasing this appliance if you are in need of one.
