Why NSI Protection Plus?

Our service plan is an economical way to extend the terms of your product's manufacturer parts & labor warranty.

Most manufacturer's limited warranties leave customers with no protection against the rising cost of repairs.

Even the best products can malfunction and the most minor repairs can cost hundreds.

About NSI Protection Plus

Administered by Warrantech and insured by AmTrust Financial, NSI Protection Plus is the largest service network in the industry with 30 years of building the network and over 22 million in paid claims.

The most comprehensive repair plans in the business!

  • Day one coverage on special features
  • Removal and reinstallation coverage
  • $25 Laundry credit (Washers and Dryers)
  • 5 year appliance contracts include 10 year major component coverage
  • $250 Food credit (per incident, eligible products)
  • The only true "No Lemon Guarantee" in the business
  • No "CAP" on repairs or replacement, unlimited repairs.

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.

Good but very sensitive door

Sapita 9/13/2020

I appreciate all the settings and the app. My only problem was the overly sensitive door that would stop my clothes from drying because it would hit the sensors that kept it close. The fix: put a little felt door stopper to create a closer connection between the sensor and the lock. Problem solved.

missheather7 9/9/2020

Had the dryer for a few weeks. This dryer is definetely bigger than I thought it would be, which is great. I love the light on the inside. I would just suggest to have simpler word settings, like "Normal". The 1st time my kids used the dryer they had no idea what setting to use.

Sleek design

Lexileh 9/9/2020

So far we love this dryer. Great sleek looking design and I love the large size drum. The only negative so far is my athletic shorts draw strings get all tangled and tied up around clothes. It's actually ruined a pair of my favorite shorts and we've only been using the dryer 3 weeks. I'm not sure what's causing it as I've tried to adjust the settings. Other than that it works great!

LHParker96734 9/9/2020

We just bought our house that came with a newly purchased GE washer and dryer. At first glance I thought it would be complicated since they both look like something you would fly to Mars in. But I was pleasantly pleased to find how easy they are to use. We downloaded the app and it makes life much easier. No longer have to stop what I'm doing to see how much time is left on a load. The only issue with awesome technology is that it is always being improved upon. Now I want the next model that comes out.

just ok

Just lilme 9/7/2020

I bought this set because of the odor block. I have had it about 2 months and have had a service call already.I am not a fan of the lint filter, its big and bulky to clean. When stacked has a small slant it's so tall I have trouble seeing dials to select temp. Also the glass on front is a dust catcher have to wipe off everytime i use it. I do love the wi fi technology. Notifies me when complete.

The bottom line is if a dryer drys clothes without destroying things. This machine does its job well. The added features are icing on the cake. The only thing left is to see if it's tough enough to last.

Love the Wifi and wrinkle care

Gma9 8/30/2020

My absolute favorite feature of this dryer is the Wifi. It send notifications to my phone when the time left is estimated to be 5 minutes, and then again when it's done drying. If I can't unload it right away, I can choose wrinkle care from the app and the dryer will keep my clothes tumbling to help prevent wrinkles. But, I don't love the locking clips on the lint filter. They are very stiff, and the clip on one side has broken off already, after owning this dryer for less than 2 months. I also have randomly got "check vent" notices on the dryer and not sure yet what this means in a new dryer that was just installed. But other than that, it's a great dryer. I have had a few loads that I've needed to add extra time to. Not sure if that's due to the sensor or it being a mixed load. The capacity is great and I've been very pleased with how big blankets and towels dry.
