    Love GE

    As a child I remember my parents always having a GE washer and dryer so I kept it that way. I lost my 2 year old GE washer and dryer in Hurricane Harvey so I had to buy another one. Once my home was repaired I headed straight to Best Buy to make my purchase. The employee that assisted me was very thoughtful and friendly. On my first round of drying my clothes was still damp when the dryer finished but I discovered it was do to my wrong settings. Going forward I haven’t had no problems. I love the large capacity, the light inside and the many setting options. My dryer is in the garage and I can hear the finish buzzer inside my house when I have it on the highest setting, so that’s a plus for me.

    Troubled Dryer

    Although the features on this dryer are useful when drying a variety of laundry, for the price I would have hoped that I wouldn't have any problems within the first six months. Yes, that's right it stopped drying clothes within the first six months of use. Mind you, there are only two of us now, as all our children are grown and on their own with there own children. Since I only do a little laundry each week I thought this one would last a lot longer than the ones used when I had children at home. So, now I am hanging clothes on the line again, waiting for someone to come out and fix the dryer.

      Hello dragonfly7061 - thank you for providing a review of your dryer. We're sorry it is no longer drying the clothes. Many concerns can be corrected by simply disconnecting power via the main power supply (your home circuit breaker) for a few minutes. Also, please verify that the venting going to the outside is clear and not kinked, bent or clogged. Otherwise, we recommend to proceed with your service appointment. Thanks for your feedback!

    Good dryer

    This review is based on having the dryer for 2 months. It has a nice capacity and does what it is intended to do. Not loud and the light inside upon opening the dryer is helpful. My only complaints which are minor is that I wish the door would open by folding downward as opposed to opening sideways. The other complaint is that the lint screen should have been made a little larger. When I wash towels, for example, I try to clean the lint screen half way through the cycle because it is always full of lint and it seems like the drying time takes longer when this screen has more lint. Also, the electrical cord is a bit shorter than my previous dryer but it may be a standard length.

    The dryer dries well and has multiple temperature and timed settings. I recommend using the lower temp settings; Delicate setting for clothing, Casual setting for bed linens and the Cotton setting gets very hot but perfect for towels and has a long run time. The dryer is louder than my previous dryer which had a stainless drum and heavier steel framing. My GE washer purchased in 2015 is also very loud. I don’t like the new designs of the GE machines, they are too tall and do not sit together tightly side by side, leaving an opening for items to fall through...

    Dryer is great. Delivery was great. However, very disappointed in some of the store sales force for their seeming lack of knowledge about major appliances. For example, size differences from older standard models. Also, it makes no sense to me to be selling hookup parts that don't meet the need, and then have the delivery people try to get installation done without proper adapter fittings. Not a cost effective business practice, and leaves the customer extremely "unhappy."

    This dryer has been a life saver. It was easy to install and hook up. We did have some issues with the gas line but I think that was just user error. It dries in record time and is pretty quiet. The only downfall that I can see is that sometimes when you put a large load in, the door likes to pop open when you first start it. However, it could jsut be operator error and just not closing it all the way.

    GE Dryer

    It worked for a few days. Then after 80 minutes on high the clothes were still damp. I called Best Buy they basically tried to convince me it wasn't broken. After a few minutes the guy said it was probably broke but I had to call GE directly. Was on hold for 30 minutes before I gave up. I also purchased the matching washer an it's great , so I don't know what to tell you. Good luck

    Quite Gas Dryer

    We bought a new gas dryer because the old one died. I chose this one with no digital not LCD display. Less electronic the better I say. Almost a month and so far so good. I have the washer with the same brand with an agitator. If you are seeking something simple, easy and no electronics etc. This is the one to get.

    Great Washer with Sufficient Extras

    Nice looking unit with lots of space for a Queen size comforter, could probably take a King. Has plenty of extra features and controls using analog dials. I looked at some of the LCD Screen units and felt the controls looked overly complicated for what it was, and the extra cash required to purchase them of course. This is a great mid range unit and I highly recommend it.

    I'm new to this sensing appliances, but gets the clothes clean.i like the double spin feature, as i think it saves money when you dry your clothes. Time will tell how durable they are.I'm old school, and like my older appliances just fine, gave them to my daughter, so I made my wife happy and my daughter. worried a bit if they are all nylon gears, time will tell.

    Great top load washer

    My last washer had no agitator so I thought it would hold more laundry. Mistake it didn't clean the clothes. I like top load washers and this one is awesome. It is good sized and cleans the clothes good. Even plays a melody when it starts and finishes. I would recommend if your looking for a new top load.

    Noisy and Slow to Dry Clothes

    Not very happy with this dryer. Bought it because it was the match for my GE washer. It sounds like a sewing machine. The medium temperature takes forever to dry my load of mixed clothing. Only one higher temperature is also the highest temperature. Nervous using that setting.

    Nice settings. My husband likes the dewrinkle setting for his shirts. I like that it has the lint trap inside rather than on top. Hated that in my old machine. There was always fuzz everywhere. The installers even switched the swing of the door so that it opens away from my washer. Couldn't do that with my old one. I've only had it two weeks, but so far am very happy.

    I love the capacity size and it seem to dry fairly fast. I love having a light inside the drum and being able to adjust the buzzer volume. The one thing I don't like is the lint screen, it is really small and it is hard to get to slide back in due to the plastic housing seems to bow some. Over all not bad but for what I paid i expected more.

    Bought the gas dryer as a gift for my daughter and her family in their new home. Chose gas over electric because of existing connections but probably would have been cheaper to have electric outlet installed. Gas dryer cost $100 more and installation was $139 when it would have been free for electric. Works great and hopefully will last.

    Purchased this dryer after my 20 year old gas dryer finally gave out. It is absolutely great. Dryer clothes in nearly have the time that my old dryer did. Plenty of setting available for all sort of fabrics. Extremely happy with this purchase. I highly recommend it.

    Did a lot of research and was going to get the Maytag version but after reading reviews there were a lot of problems and this one is amazing. Clothes are super dry and cozy. The only issue is the buzzer is super loud but can be turned off

    Like title says. Its a good product for when you want to keep things simple. Its a dryer. It dries things. No fancy gimmicks. No extra bells or whistles. Just what my family needed. Only issue I have with it is that the knobs feel cheap. Especially the knob that controls the dryer timer.
