It dries everything so fast!

gingerfauxreal 12/3/2020

There are so many features on this dryer, but to me, what really matters, is the fact that it dries everything from curtains, bathroom rugs, and quilts so fast! There is nothing like having a quilt dried in 30 minutes or less.

This is replacing my Samsung dryer that lasted 3 years one month post warranty expiration. Previously I had a GE dryer that lasted 15 years and I just gave it away to replace it with a newer one that broke 3 years later so I am back to GE and very happy with performance.

Beth IN MA 11/28/2020

Can't complain about this machine! I purchased it to replace a 20 yr old Maytag dryer and boy what an upgrade. The wifi texts to say the cycle is done is far more useful that I thought it would be. It does a great job drying the clothes and looks good in the process.

Dries great but the noise is annoyingly loud

Km3tb6 11/28/2020

Just picked up from Lowe's and installed today. Everything went smoothly and had no problems with leveling the unit either. The problem started as soon as I fired it up for the first time. The noise from what I can only assume is the motor is very pronounced and resembles a sound that an out of balance washing machine would make. We have now run it through 6 cycles and the noise is still as loud as it was with the first one. If it is truly a problem with the motor then I fear it might not last very long. Would be happy to change my review to 5 stars if this can be remedied.

SidraG 11/18/2020

Loving my dryer, it dries quickly & efficiently. The only thing I don't really care for is the lint filter. I find it inconvenient to get all the lint out without laying it on the washer or dryer & then having dust that I have to wipe off. Also, there is usually lint that did not get caught in the filter & can hang on the door or above the filter.
