LadyBug19 8/31/2020

Purchased this dryer and matching washer to replace our LG's. This set puts the LG's to shame, not to mention it was half the cost. Our laundry comes out smelling great every time!! As an added bonus, we love the Wi-Fi feature, which notifies us when our laundry is done. Thank you, GE!

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.

What a machine!!!

cable215 8/24/2020

This dryer is the best dryer I've owned and used in my life. That counts the dryers at the laundromat. The drum size is what sold us and after using it with our king size bedding, I will never go to a smaller drum again. I'll go bigger if they end up making them but not smaller. When my king size bedding dries on the first run, I'm sold. Another plus is the lint basket. Nice and big. Lint, pet hair, etc gets contained within it and not all over the dryer.

JeffPr 8/23/2020

Shocked at how huge this dryer capacity is. I love that the dry sensing feature actually saves us time and money. I set it on heavy for 1 hour and it seems to dry a load of towels in 30 minutes. Got an excellent price, on sale at Lowes and an additional $100 off on a quantity purchase. This replaced a 20 year of Whirlpool that was taking about 1.5 hours to dry towels. So glad I got this american made product.

Love this machine. It is VERY quiet and does an excellent job drying the clothes. The smart settings are very accurate and allow us to throw clothes in and head out without fear that things will still be damp or needing to over dry and spend extra energy. The lint trap design is so smart and does a great job keeping the hose clean! So happy with this machine.

Doesn't dry clothes

Laxmom27 8/22/2020

This dryer is almost a month old and I repeatedly have to run dry cycles multiple times just to get small to medium loads dry. It has lots of nice features which are useless when the product doesn't do what it's supposed to do. Plus customer service hasn't been responsive. I would just like to have this resolved but apparently GE doesn't care. I would avoid this dryer.

Terrific dryer

HemingwayPaul 8/21/2020

It has been a wonderful replacement for my old dryer. It not only looks great, but does a wonderful job of drying my clothes. The large capacity really reduces the number of loads which reduces the amount of time I'm spending in the laundry room. I love The smart capabilities. It tells me when the cycle is almost complete and again when it is complete. I haven't found anything negative yet. I love the dewrinkle feature. It really works. I use it all the time reducing the ironing time.

I absolutely LOVE my dryer. It has settings for everything I need it to! I love that all Lacey delicates are taken care of and they no longer break down after drying! It dries everything so nicely and even has a TUMBLE CARE option and keeps your clothes from getting wrinkles! I LOVE that it has an app that lets me know when things are done because lets face it.. I have 3 boys' ,a husband and two pugs, a cat.. so I do a LOT of laundry almost everyday im throwing something in there. I also love that my clothes are pet hair free after! ALSO LOOK AT HOW MUCH SPACE THEY SAVED STACKED! Im able to add a pantry now!

Problem from the Start

BlueDog48 8/19/2020

First time I turned the dryer on, there was a clanging noise. I had to schedule a repairman to come to take the dryer apart (with my help). There was a lose bolt ready to fly off. Now, I have to slightly lift the door for it to close properly. Shouldn't have to pay $700+ for a dryer that needs a repairman first thing and a door that doesn't close properly.

Besides, until the app can put the clothes into the dryer from the washer having my washer and dryer on wi-fi is not a top priority.

Good Performance - Poor Lint Tray/Basket Design

Tim and Karen 8/17/2020

So we are very happy with the overall performance. There is however at design flaw in the lint basket. The lint tray is now more of a basket. The basket is a folding layer of 2 screens that must be pulled out of the dryer to empty. You open it like a book, empty the lint, and close it together with clasps, then re-insert into dryer. Well the clasps have already broken !! It is an obvious design flaw - as it has only been in use for 2 weeks.....

Good function with a few drawbacks

Eds1952 8/15/2020

The dryer does a good thorough job of drying the close and has many options, so it very flexible in use. The main drawbacks I have are that the door is too large to fit my laundry basket underneath, and the alarm is not loud enough to hear if I am not near by. The filter trap is tedious to clean.
