Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow! drys really fast!! We bought the matching set and just love it! They have really big ss drums for all the other laundry you will want to do too!! Blankets are so easy to do now. The steam is also very cool and easy to hook up with your water. I love the way these machines talk to one another!! How really cool!! And I am just beginning to get to know my new GE dryer!!! Thanks GE!! Janice and I am also a GE/GNF-A employee! 5/28/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by First impressions are very good. Learning to use the product now. Our old GE lasted quite a long time so the product improvements are the more impressive. 6/7/13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bought for features - suits my needs Have had dryer 8 months, so tested under all possible circumstances and 3 seasons for my household:, (3 adults), king size bedding (blankets, sheets, bath towels), sneakers (drying rack), dedicates, and hand washables, dog and cat bedding. jeans, sweats, tee shirts, no iron shirts and summery cotton and gauze blouses, cotton and mixed fabric dress pants. Took a while to figure out which setting best suit my needs and how to get around preset settings for temperature. Once accomplished, easy to use. Drying sensor: If mixing small items like socks with larger items like towels, machine turns off when towels are dry and socks may still be damp. Some small items not fully dry. Have to remove towels and put socks in again. Annoying but not major issue. Depending on size of sheet, sheets tend to get tangled up and have some damp spots, so back in dryer. Happened with old dryer also. Works well on all other cycles. Sound: Machine very quiet, mine sitting on tile floor in laundry room right off kitchen but you sometimes hear the tumble. All depends on how sensitive you are to noise. Steam features: Steam Refresh; I use when item hanging in closet for a season or unpacked from storage box. Does what it says, refresh. Steam de-wrinkle - Easy care or no iron shirts and pants - helps but does not remove every wrinkle. Its not an iron. I use this feature a lot because I forget to remove items from dryer, then again I expect to iron every shirt and pair of pants (50 years of ironing habit), Steam de-wrinkle just reduces my ironing time a bit. Best feature for me is Sanitize. Checked with GE for temp and times when dryer on sanitize, then checked private sites and govt sites for time it takes to kill specific types of bacteria. Extremely happy with this feature. Use it on sheets, pillow cases, blankets, terry robes, animal bedding, Liked the feature so much bought GE washing machine 8 months later with sanitize feature. Length of time to dry items:Takes longer than old dryer. If necessary or desired, you can get around preset features and shorten drying time. Overall I am very happy with dryer. 7/13/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dryer Love my new dryer - tons of features - all useful, my fab is clean speak function which allows the washer to program the dryer (admittedly I was skeptical about this function but it has worked perfectly everytime) 7/30/13
