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 Dehumidifier Needing Little Daily Attention

Dougdan 7/5/2022

We needed a dehumidifier for our basement laundry room -- the humidity is a result of a problem with our french drain so that the wall becomes wet whenever it rains. The dehumidifier does its work and doesn't need us to be there to constantly empty the bucket. Very convenient and reliable.

Working very well and not noisy. Only complaint about filter replacing time. It seems that it request to clean or replace every 10 days (no matter filter condition). It seems that it is annoying to me.

Poorly designed.

Bv1 GR 9/21/2021

The dehumidifier is poorly designed, the front of the container is difficult to remove without spilling water when it's full. It's noisy and irritating. The absence of a cord wrap is a nuisance and the cord is far too short. It definitely removes moisture effectively.

Melodiqua 9/4/2021

Works great and very discrete look for a big dehumidifier but it is very loud. Don't get me wrong I have owned a lot of dehumidifiers and this one is loud... but it works and lasts. And I like the big bucket so I don't have to empty it multiple times.

Good system, with some flaws

ChickenDinner12 8/26/2021

Overall, the system is quiet (3 selectable fan speeds for even quieter operation), and does the job well. My only complaint is that while using the hose pump feature, the bucket has filled up, and stopped the system from operating (until the bucket is emptied). This has only happened a couple times since I've owned the machine, so I check it each week and empty the collected water. This would be important for someone who wants to leave the system running for long unattended periods. Someone needs to check the system and empty the bucket IF you're using the hose pump feature.

Mike2893 7/25/2021

I'm a proud American and I love General Electric products. This my second GE de humidifier. The other I've had for a year or so and is working perfect. This one going strong and I have had no problems. The pump I have not used yet, but I might set it up later on. The timer which I have on both de humidifiers is great but it would be nice to have a clock that you could adjust to specific time.

Reliable Dehumidifier

P Jones 7/15/2021

This is our second GE dehumidifier. The first one has been in service a few years and has not given us any problems. We have purchased off-brand dehumidifiers in the past that have not lasted very long. This one simply works.

Roseyp 7/3/2021

This 50 pint unit replaced my 70 pint GE dehumidifier with pump. The 70 pint only lasted about 2 years before the pump stopped working. This 50 pint unit has only been in service a little over a month. So far, so good. It handles the humidity in my crawl space nicely and the pump appears to be working well. It is quiet and has nice features.
