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.

Keeps breaking

11/23/2018

I have a GE dishwasher model GDF520PGJWW. Ive had the repairman out here 3 times it works fine for a week or 2 and then repeats the same issue. I push the start the light comes on and in a few seconds I got 3 beeps and the light starts flashing. I held the button in to restart and the same thing keeps happening. I shut off the breaker overnight and tried again this morning and the same thing happens. Paid more in repair fees than the unit costs. Last night was Thanksgiving and it stopped working for the last time Never buying another GE product again.

Dealer tried to sell units with mediocre to bad reviews on ConsumerReports.org. I rejected them and held out for a unit with better reviews there. They finally proposed this one. I checked CR. Then I accepted. Bottom Line: Find out what YOU want and stick to your guns It was installed yesterday so I cant give a review of actual experience yet. Hoping for the best.

Ran well until it died at 2 years

10/7/2018

Really liked it. Suddenly it stopped running the wash motor. Resetting it by turning power off at the breaker for a minute would cure it once. Not an obvious failure so too much hassle to fix. Am not pleased.

Good product but...

9/24/2018

Happy with until a few weeks after we bought it and the paint on the bottom rack started to lose the tip of the finishing paint and by now a little over a year after the whole rack is getting rusted and falling apart also the top rack sits in tracks that keeps getting the unscrewed as a result we have to go in every month or so to keep it from falling. Not good...

This is the first dishwasher we have ever purchased and we couldnt be happier It cleans so well and is very quiet. I love the interior space for our family of four. We never use the dryer function but thats just a personal preference. I usually just pull the racks out a bit and let them dry. Last night I heard it end the cycle and it played a short jingle. It was very cute. Obviously its not very loud because we have had it a month or two and I only heard it because I happened to be in the room.
