For customers residing outside our local delivery area, included in our nationwide shipping price is shipping to the contiguous lower 48 states. For customers who indicate that they reside in our local delivery area, we provide free local in-store pickup. For our local customers who would like their items delivered by one of our local delivery teams, our customer service team would be happy to arrange that for you.

Items that are not indicated as "In stock" or "Express Shipping" may need to be ordered. We order inventory regularly, and we work with manufacturers to get our products delivered in a timely manner, but please be aware it can take 8-10 weeks for inventory to arrive. If you have questions about the availability of an item, please call 605-348-5100 and our customer service team would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

We work hard to keep our shipping rates competitive. We partner with both freight and parcel shipping providers to get your furniture to your door, hassle free. Please see shipping information for more details.

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.

Quality and service is questionable

Federfunk 2/18/2021

I bought this dryer along with the matching washer. The washer is great no issues at all. The dryer on the other hand is terrible. There is a loud clanking sound while it is running. It is leveled on a solid surface and does not shake. The sound is internal. It sounds like where the motor is. The control knob on the dryer also feels terrible when you turn it. It does not turn smoothly like the knob on the washer. I noticed these issues on the day it was delivered. GE is going to replace the dryer, but that won't happen until over a month from now. I'm not satisfied with my purchase at all.

Disappointing

JanetRA 2/17/2021

I bought this in the middle of the pandemic there was no other option available. Within weeks of purchase the service repair company came out three times due to issues with 'venting' - convenient to blame the location of the vent but problem disappeared after installation of a replacement part. Machine is now a year old and I've just purchased an extended warrantee assuming I will need it. Also, the lint filter does not do a good job of catching all the lint and hair, there are often balls of lint stuck to the clothes when I open the door after the drying program has finished. A first in my history of dryers.

Nevergonnagiveyouup 2/14/2021

My wife and I have had this dryer with the matching washer for about a month now. It works well. We wanted the top of the line models in blue and couldn't get them due to the pandemic and the manufacturing and shipping problems. I do like the WiFi features but wanted the ones that can automatically start a load and then talk to each other to simplify the process. Again this model is fine but wanted better.

Coco14 2/14/2021

Dries so much faster than the old dryer it replaced - twice as fast. The tone is quiet so I appreciate the app that notifiese on my phone and smart watch when clothes are ready. I also really like the interior light and that I can save my own preferred settings on the dryer.

Apryl228 2/8/2021

I loved how the dryer had a huge capacity and light inside. Did not like the vent filter that you have to clean each time. You have to pull it out undo the clips on both ends then unfold and clean. It's messy, and I know the plastic will not last and it will end up breaking sooner than later and would have to buy a replacement.
