Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

What we needed

KatStu 7/22/2020

Love the simplicity. Old dryer "gave up the farm" and died. Does everything we need. The only issue is the accumulation of lint below the filter.

This dryer replaces a very old Maytag dryer. It has more features, easy to understand controls, and larger capacity. Most important, it fits in a limited space.

Easy to use

Carolb19 7/22/2020

We purchased this dryer for our lake cabin. Its large capacity is excellent for the many towels and linens that we use here. The clear markings on the dials make it easy for anyone to figure out. My only negative comment is that the dial is hard to turn for someone who has wrist problems. The items in the dryer are dry when the cycle is up so no need to rerun.

Lishka610 7/21/2020

When cycle is over, I open the door and there is a puff of dog hair that is just sitting on top of the lint tray. And yes, I empty the lint tray every single load as recommended. Don't like the open to the side door, better with it opening down. Overall, meh.

Adequate

Indiana homemaker 7/21/2020

Writing this review six months after installation. Have never had a GE dryer in the past. It is adequate but seems cheaply made compared to other brands I have used. My main complaint with this dryer is the lint filter. I clean it after each load, yet lint accumulates in the bottom of the slot where the filter fits and I am unable to remove it even with my dryer cleaning kit that attaches to the vacuum cleaner hose. Also, lint accumulates on the gasket that is on the dryer door. Otherwise, no issues with this dryer.

New Dryer

CrazyJayne 7/19/2020

I just had this dryer installed so I've only used it a couple times but so far so good! I used to only by Kenmore products from Sears but since Kenmore is no longer available I though it would try GE. This dryer replaced my Kenmore that I had for 10+ years. I'm hoping that this dryer will last just as long! The only negative I have so far is the light inside the dryer could be a little brighter but other than that, not issues so far.
