I recently purchased this dryer. I have only been using it for a week but so far I love it. It does a really god job drying items. I feel like the sensing works well. I can't wait to use the steam feature...sometimes I don;t get to folding it right away and this feature will help keep me from looking like a complete slacker! The tub capacity is nice and big. I fell like it can accommodate most items that I have. Another feature I plan on using is the sanitizing feature. I have a blanket that I don't think should be washed but I do want to help sanitize it. I will have to re-read the manual to make sure of the setting that I need to use but it will be nice to take care of it. The built in pedestal is fantastic. It was nice not to have to purchase it separate.

We purchased this dryer and had it delivered / installed in our new home late in August. After only three loads of clothes being dried, one of the two stainless steel moisture sensing rods fell out of the lint trap holder assembly. This failure caused the dryer to stop functioning correctly in the Auto dry mode - as it thought the clothes were dry within the first one minute of the cycle. We scheduled a warranty repair call online and the unit was repaired about ten days later. Not very impressed with the dryer's durability so far - especially considering the cost. Seems to be functioning correctly since the repair though.

Been using this dryer for 3 months now and it's been great. Quiet with tons of features. It's really nice not having to bend over as low as i used to with my previous dryer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love all the features
from Bensalem, Pa
I have just started using this machine and it runs to perfection. Very happy with it and hope it lasts awhile.

I just received it and I love the large drying area! And the fact that it is not made of plastic! It heated up right away. So far so good
from Fulton il
I love the ge front load dryer. This is my second one. The other lasted 7 years through 3 very active children and husband that farms. I love the large capacity so can do sheets and bedspreads and blankets. Love the upgrades that have been made in 7years. Especially the untangle feature.
from Atlanta, GA, United States
I love the drying power. It is so much faster than my old dryer. The steam feature is great for freshening and getting out wrinkles.
None of the preset settings work correctly
from Cincinnati, OH
If I use one of the preset settings on the dryer, my clothes never get dry. Especially on low heat, but they don't work on any heat setting. I end up having to use the timed setting for every load.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Valdosta, GA.
We have had wonderful service with this piece of equipment for the past month plus. Ease of use and completeness of drying are two of the positive points. Even mixed loads are totally dry when the cycle is finished. The only negative comment I can make is that if there is a signal that the cycle is complete we have not heard it. Even from a very short distance away you have difficulty hearing it while it is running and the silence when it is finished is a bit disappointing. Our previous dryer buzzed when it was finished and you could hear it from a relatively long distance away.

Have been using GE products for a long time. This dryer is super effective.
Love this Dryer!
from Washington, United States
Installed on February 15. and no problems since. We love it! The dryer is huge and fits a variety of load sizes. Love the steam option for work clothes in the morning! Best decision we made to go with these models!
All the Right Stuff

Very happy with the performance. The pedestal makes loading and unloading much easier. The Steam Refresh is an outstanding feature.
