We have owned this dryer for two months now, and it has done its job well enough... but there is one major design flaw. ALL dryer sheets get stuck in the sensor bars on the linen trap! This has been very annoying, but has not hampered (ha) its ability to get the job done. G.E. is aware of this issue and is repairing it through our local shop, BUT the part needed is on a nationwide backorder for SIX WEEKS!! Apparently everyone and their dog is having this issue.
Another thing that I do not like is that the lint trap is too small! It fills up all of the way when drying extra large loads, and then the lint gets stuck on the outside of the tray and back on my clothes when I pull them out.
I have only used the steam feature once, and it works as expected.
The app is a novelty for us. We like being informed when the cycles are complete and seeing its progress.
All in all- I am annoyed by the lint trap being small but would still feel alright about this purchase if the dryer sheet issue can be fixed.
This dryer's saving grace is the matching washing machine.. I LOVE it!! This being our first energy efficient washer- I find myself using the Deep fill option regularly. There weren't very many washers with a soak option like this one, and this also has the water station so you can scrub clothes as it fills. My absolute favorite feature though, and as far as I know the only washing machine that has this, is the detergent reservoir! Its awesome!! There is a tank that that you prefill with your detergent, and it will dispense automatically or you can adjust to your own liking or just turn off if you want to use a pod. SO CONVENIENT.
So thanks to your cool washer G.E.- I will still recommend the dryer.
