Great dryer!

By MrsGo

from Prospect, CT, United States

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

This dryer dries my clothes, even large loads, very quickly. The lint filter seems to catch a lot of lint, so I know it isn't clogging up the vent. This dryer is easy to use. I would have to say the best feature is how fast it dries the clothes.

Poor Quality

By RossDave

from Ross, Ohio

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

My first dryer had a long crease in the sheet metal just below the glass door. The second dryer was okay but when I tried to switch the door to open the other way the striker would not engage in the latch. Customer service said it was a defective dryer and would need to be replaced. The top of the replacement dryer was severely damaged. Dryer number four had a severe misalignment between the top of the dryer and the right front vertical sheet metal pillar. Dryer number five is okay so far. The manual does not have any instructions on how the dryer communicates with the washing machine to set the dryer cycle.

Great capacity

By mt_4_us

from Castle Rock, CO, United States

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

This machine was pre-installed in a new home; we did not have any input into the decision to purchase. I do like the capacity of the dryer; it does a great job with large loads and senses when loads are small so as not to waste energy. It has several features that I have not even used yet.
