It does what it's supposed to do!

By Geezer1944

from Pittsburgh, PA, United States

Comments about GE 7.8 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer - White:

The dryer handles large loads and drys the clothes thoroughly without baking them. I like the fact that the washer can talk to it to pre-arrange the dryer settings. It's also exceptionally quiet. Haven't used the steam feature yet. It's too bad the end of cycle chime can't be programmed to make a recognizable chord.
