Awesome Dryer

Conner123 5/1/2020

Love the wifi notifications when dryer is finished! Love that you can switch the door opening sides. Makes it easier to move clothes over from washer. It has dried a mix of clothes and a blanket and it did an awesome job. Jeans, shirts and blanket throw all came out dry! I haven't had a dryer that has been able to do this in the past! I am so happy with this dryer!

Glofy 4/29/2020

After researching, I decided on this one for features and capacity. This dryer has more features than most and you can trust the GE brand. Also, GE is innovative and this year, with this model,redesigned their washers and dryers leaving behind the competition. Beautiful design and great dryer.

Christyhilo 4/21/2020

I haven't had a new washer dryer in 15 years. We did a lot of research. I knew I wanted/needed stackable ones because of the space we have.This GE set had great reviews, but I was nervous because the washer was so new to the market. I loved the idea of the fresh step to get rid of the water washer so there's no Odor or mold. I have not been disappointed at all! I love the text to remind me to move the clothes to the dryer and then to take the clothes out! I also love the sanitize setting. Over all I'm super happy!

Best Dryer I have every purchased

Randy1963 4/21/2020

Love using this dryer. Many features on it including notifying me when it finishes on my phone. If you leave the items in too long after the cycle completes, there is a 15 minute refresh cycle. Many very handy options.

Nice dryer, could improve lint trap

Ang2020 4/21/2020

Overall, a great dryer. Nice features, good capacity. However, the dryer lint trap is a daily pain. It is located at the bottom front and requires you to pull out a clamshell type filter, that you unfold to clean. The plastic tabs that hold it closed broke in the first week. This filter is very hard to fully clean out, even when using a vacuum. There seem to be too many strange crevices in the plastic design. Also, be careful when the clamshell filter is out...this leaves a large opening that would be easy for laundry to fall into the dryer vent (sock, washcloth, etc.).

I've always loved the really big washer and drier. And when this came out I fell in love with all the features. Especially where I can check my phone if the washer or dryer are ready. Saves me trips in going upstairs to check if it's done. Then dryer, dries my clothes very fast too.

So far so good!

Big Me 3/31/2020

It's only been a week, but so far it operates as it should. Of note - The dryer lint trap is massive and folds over and then it clips together. To open it you have to unclip 2 small molded in clips, that will surely break some point in the future. Also if you buy the matching washer, and upograde to stainless steel hoses, you will be 2 stainless steel hoses short. It comes with a metal "T" and 2 rubber hoses to adapt and fill for the steam feature. I need to replace those hoses with stainless steel, and check the "T" for quality. I'm afraid it will be a cheap cast part that will fail when I'm not home. Door is also a little clunky when closing for my liking.

Just received purchase so I cannot give a full review but i really enjoy so far. The dryer does not come with a power cord but that is standard since some homes use different plugs. The washer does come with its cord. The dryer does come with the steam hose to connect to the washer hose. The washer does not come with hoses. The washer is pretty quiet as well.
