barngrrl 7/21/2020

I bought this dryer to replace a similar GE dryer. It works great and has nice features including steam. However, I can hear this dryer all over our house. It makes a loud swishing sound which makes it sound cheap. I am willing to overlook this because it does a great job and I love the features it offers. I was told by the sales person that GE now makes all their products in China.

DRG54 7/15/2020

Very efficient. Drys quickly. Still getting used to the lint remover...unlike my old dryer with a quick lift it out and remove the lint...this one is easy lift out but then needs to unlock clips to get lint out from the middle section of the lint catcher. Not a big deal, just an extra step. Overall great product so far! Haven't tried the steamer yet. Will provide followup if issues...but not anticipating any!

Dries Loads Completely The First Time

CalicoTex 7/13/2020

One of my biggest complaints with the other dryers I've owned is that the sensor function that detects whether the clothes are dry never works and I have to run the load multiple times to get them dry. This unit will dry the clothes completely the first go around. Also, the dryer's drum light actually comes on when you open the door and you don't have to push a button to turn it on, as other manufacturers have started doing with the new units. The steam function works great to get wrinkles out - no more ironing! Very pleased with this purchase.

NO SERVICE FROM GE 7/12/2020

Dryer is fine. And washer is fine. But it was installed on the pedestal wrong so drawer won't shut. Have setup two appointments to get it fixed but. I one calls no one shows up. And GE can't find where we called. GE then set up a appointment for a day when no one is there. And this time they show up!!!!!! But can't fix it because no one is home. WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET THIS FIXED. NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE!!!!!!!!!!

Fast Drying & love the features

PatM 7/11/2020

I've had my new dryer for about 2 weeks. Love how it drys quickly. Handles blankets and sheets well, I've tried the the Light Load Dewrinkle feature, worked well and removed the wrinkles from my table cloth. Easy to figure the buttons out after doing a few loads. Very pleased with it so far. My daughter also purchased this same model and I also saw quite a few complaints in the reviews regarding the clips closing the folding lint filter, Yes they are pretty flimsy and it shouldn't be long before they snap off from being bent too often. GE should improve this filter for the amount of money you pay for the machine. Other than the filter I'll give it a 5 star rating.

We have had our dryer for a few weeks and we are very happy with it. Lots of settings and features. My phone and my Google Home are set to notify me when the washer and dryer finish their loads. The only quirk about the dryer is every time I open it there are small balls of lint on top of the lint collector so I throw those in the trash before removing clothes.

Lint trap redesign would be nice

capm1986 6/27/2020

The only thing that I'm disappointed with is the lint catcher. We've only had the dryer a few short months and already the tabs on the lint trap have broken off. Being plastic and exposed to the heat, they broke off when opening up the trap. As well, the lint tends to gather at the top and is usually sitting on the top outside of the trap and gets in with the clean clothes.

Great features and very quiet

AMCS2CWO 6/15/2020

I have only used this product for about 24 hours, and it has taken some time to get the hang of it. The first couple of times that I used the dryer I found that the clothes were still damp after the first cycle. I had the dryer vent cleaned prior to installation, so that wasn't the issue. After I set the control settings to "More Dry", it seemed to help the issue. It still isn't perfect, but I think it may just take a little more adjustment with the settings to get a completely dry load. I am not drying big loads of laundry, and ecoDry is not set on the machine. Otherwise, it seems to be a good product.

Casey Kaye 6/11/2020

I have had the dryer for about a month now and I'm really happy with it. Aside from the beautiful look, it performs excellent. Fast dry times, and our clothes come out wrinkle free. On occasion my husband shirts are wrinkled after drying them because I'm a lazy laundry folder but the steam fresh cycle will freshen up his shirt quickly. Buy as a pair with washing machine and it even smart links to set the best dry cycle for when the wash is complete. Also the app alerts you when the clothes are done which I like because sometimes I'll get caught up in something. That feature is especially good for the washer since you don't want to leave wet clothes in a front load machine. Also holds a good amount of clothing or blankets/towels. And the light inside is probably one of my favorite parts. Super Bright which makes it easy to ensure I got everything. Overall super satisfied with this purchase.
