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.

No more spots!

Jamoncon 10/8/2020

Very happy with this unit. Most importantly, it works. My hard water is hard no more, and now I can drink my tap water and let my dishes dry. It's looking like I don't need to install the whole house filter I bought. I love the unified all-in-one design. It looks good in my garage. It was very easy to install - did it myself. I think the WIFI function is worth the extra money. I was sitting on my couch and got a moderate water flow warning. Seemed strange, but walked through the house and found a running toilet. Had I not been home, I could have remotely turned the water off. I also like that it will warn you when the salt is low. I did have a plastic taste and smell in my water at first, but that went away within a few weeks.

RapidRon 9/28/2020

Easy to install, small foot space, easy maintenance, App to keep tabs on usage and very low salt use. Softener will alert you when time to add salt and has a leak flow detector that will turn off the water. I would definitely Recommend and would purchase it again.

Great appliance for affordable price

NHathaf 9/13/2020

I went through the market and service providers looking for a water softener that meets my need and was totally shocked with the prices. until I found this GE smart appliance at very affordable price compared to others in the market. I installed myself (very easy connections method) which has saved me hundreds of buck for installation. We are super happy with it and we can clearly feel the difference. The appliance is smart, and after installing the application on the smart phone, you receive notification of days remaining to add SALT, if there is any high abnormal flow, with the capability of shutting down the water remotely from your phone. long story short (It is highly recommended).

Great features - Wifi connection/ shut-off valve

Harold01 8/29/2020

Overall the unit appears to be a great unit. It has wifi connectivity for remote monitoring and an inlet shut-off valve (if an excessive water flow is detected - the valve will close). Unfortunately, this is the second unit - the first unit failed on setup and required a factory service call. I elected to take the unit back and get a replacement. It is a good thing I did, it was about a week and a half before I was called by a GE certified repair tech to schedule an appointment. Apparently the certified repair tech was on vacation and GE did not reveal that to me when the first unit failed.

Does what it's supposed to do, but....

catladylasvegas 8/21/2020

Replaced a 5 year old model due to panel malfunction. Replaced with the exact same model except this one had WiFi. Asked, before I bought it, if I could change all settings on the App. Sales person said yes. Asked the installer the same thing, got the same answer. Not true. Can't change anything with the App. Don't waste your money on the WiFi version, buy the non-WiFi one. Does the exact same thing. And just an FYI, the App the directions tell you to download is incorrect. GE might want to get that right.

Soft water feels great

Chef Gene 8/20/2020

So glad I purchased this water softener. I had calcium build up on my faucets/shower that has increased over the years. Hooked up the softener to supply the whole house with soft water. Followed the directions after sanitizing to run 50 gallons of water to flush out the unit and then I realized when washing my hands that I had soft water throughout my house. It was as if the soap wasn't washing off but in fact I had soft water and clean hands. Worried I would experience an off flavor with the tap water but it was just the same. Installation was moderate, set up was straight forward-following the step by step directions. My recommendation to GE is to add a step by step video for specific model install/set-up so the DIY person can follow along to make the process more user friendly.

Silky water!

GUMS 8/20/2020

This is a great water softener. It not only creates silky smooth water, but it also monitors your water usage and gives you a remote way to turn off all the water in your house should a leak develop while you are away from home. What a great insurance policy! We love using less than half the amount of soap, shampoo, detergent, conditioner, Etc.

Does what it supposed to do but....

catalover 8/3/2020

I had to replace a 5 year old water softener due to the panel not working--couldn't change settings. Purchased the WiFi model after being told by multiple people, both sales person and installer, that ALL changes can be made via the app. They can't. I spent in excess of $200 for a feature that doesn't work as I was told. Save your money, buy the non-WiFi model. And it would have been helpful if the actual directions gave the correct APP to download. It's incorrect both online and in the book. Had to call customer service to get the correct app. Typical GE, can't get anything right.

Really like the WiFi Capability

Dshaw1952 8/3/2020

Pretty straight forward installation. My only issues would be that I wasn't aware the brine tank overflow would need a really low point to drain to. I happened to have a small condensation pump so I used that to pump to a washing machine drain since I don't have a floor drain. One other issue was the automatic water shutoff had female threads not male threads on one end like The return/out flow of the softener so I had to buy a fitting so I could use the great shark bite flex hoses that Lowe's has stocked right next to the units on the floor. Other then those small issues, relatively easy to install.

My previous GE water softener finally went out and the new one easily went in its place. Simple instructions and only took a couple hours. Only thing keeping it from a 5 is the WiFi app was challenging to setup and doesn't seem to provide much value for the extra cost.

It does deduct water leaks and notifies on your mobile phone. I recommend this product only installing Wifi app instructions not provided properly in manual need to call them and they did it within no time. Great Product!
