Product Overview

The HE Sensor Dry system on this GE dryer senses how fast the load is drying and how hot the air should be to help save time and energy. The CleanSpeak Communication System makes perfect drying performance achievable thanks to the ability of the washer to communicate with the dryer to preset the dry cycle. Steam Select lets you customize your cycle by specifying the number of garments needing to be steamed. Plus, My Settings permits you to dry clothes with the settings you prefer on any cycle, rather than the defaults and store your settings for later use.

Customer Questions & Answers

bought this yesterday

runs, but no heat. why?
Asked by: annoyed
Hello- This is Lisa from GE. I am sorry for your inconvenience. Make sure your dryer is on a separate 220 volt outlet. Check circuit breaker and fuses. The dryer requires a 30 amp dual breaker or two 30 amp fuses. If you have a circuit breaker, turn the breaker to the OFF position and then back on again. (This will eliminate a problem associated with the breaker being partially tripped, but appearing to be ON.) Note: An electric dryer may run with a partial voltage of 110 volts, but it will not heat unless it has 220 volts, 30 amps. If you continue to experience an issue, I recommend contacting GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737. Their phone lines are open Monday through Friday, 7am to 10pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 8am to 6pm, EST. Thanks for checking with us.

7.8 cu. ft. Electric Dryer with Steam in White is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use! Love my new dryer. It looks great. Love the clear door and the LED light. Controls very easy to understand

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought for features - suits my needs Have had dryer 8 months, so tested under all possible circumstances and 3 seasons for my household:, (3 adults), king size bedding (blankets, sheets, bath towels), sneakers (drying rack), dedicates, and hand washables, dog and cat bedding. jeans, sweats, tee shirts, no iron shirts and summery cotton and gauze blouses, cotton and mixed fabric dress pants. Took a while to figure out which setting best suit my needs and how to get around preset settings for temperature. Once accomplished, easy to use. Drying sensor: If mixing small items like socks with larger items like towels, machine turns off when towels are dry and socks may still be damp. Some small items not fully dry. Have to remove towels and put socks in again. Annoying but not major issue. Depending on size of sheet, sheets tend to get tangled up and have some damp spots, so back in dryer. Happened with old dryer also. Works well on all other cycles. Sound: Machine very quiet, mine sitting on tile floor in laundry room right off kitchen but you sometimes hear the tumble. All depends on how sensitive you are to noise. Steam features: Steam Refresh; I use when item hanging in closet for a season or unpacked from storage box. Does what it says, refresh. Steam de-wrinkle - Easy care or no iron shirts and pants - helps but does not remove every wrinkle. Its not an iron. I use this feature a lot because I forget to remove items from dryer, then again I expect to iron every shirt and pair of pants (50 years of ironing habit), Steam de-wrinkle just reduces my ironing time a bit. Best feature for me is Sanitize. Checked with GE for temp and times when dryer on sanitize, then checked private sites and govt sites for time it takes to kill specific types of bacteria. Extremely happy with this feature. Use it on sheets, pillow cases, blankets, terry robes, animal bedding, Liked the feature so much bought GE washing machine 8 months later with sanitize feature. Length of time to dry items:Takes longer than old dryer. If necessary or desired, you can get around preset features and shorten drying time. Overall I am very happy with dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing dryer and great upgrade! I replaced my units with a washer/dryer combo from GE. The set is fantastic and works like a charm! Steam features are a plus too. The larger drum dries the largest items with ease. An amazing deal on clearance and the delivery team did a great job installing. There was a small dent in top (size of a dime) but I chose to keep it (not created by delivery team as I watched them).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BEWARE We bought this set from Home Depot. The HOME DEPOT delivery guy dropped the washer off the truck. They said it was ok, had a small dent and offered me 75.00 off (which took me tons of fighting and almost a year to get). The washer never worked right. H/D refused to take it back after 2 weeks. I fought with GE for one year and after a GE repair man replaced everything he could on the washer, they finally gave me a replacement. It is working fine so far. JUST BEFORE the one year warranty was up on the dryer, it started blowing the 30A fuses. GE once again sent a repair guy who replaced them (16.00 each). It is still blowing fuses only on the one year warranty day, GE canned us.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features! Love this dryer!  I was hesitant to purchase a dryer with so many electronic features, but it is the features that I have come to appreciate.  I've been using it consistently for several weeks now.  Once the wash cycle is complete, the dryer wakes up and has already chosen the dry cycle that matches the wash cycle.  My clothes come out dry every time and it does its work quickly.  The size of the drum is wonderful as I can dry large quilts and comforters.  The steam/dewrinkle feature is excellent.  Also, I normally dry my sweaters by laying them flat to dry, but today I dried five sweaters on low heat and they look as they air dried.  This is a great product, as is the matching washer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steam-enabled dryer is a great innovation! I`ve been shopping for a steam-enabled dryer for 2 years and am excited to replace my 20-year old dryer with the GE unit, which is paired to the new top-loading washer. The dryer receives moisture and load data from the washer via a network cable. This is my first experience with a HE washer, so I`ve been overwhelmed by the freshness and reduced dry time, due to the high-speed spin of the washer, requiring far less dryer time. The combination of the two produces much softer clothes, even for clothes I`ve had for over a year. My only recommendation is to make sure you have a good connection on the water hose, used for the steam, as mine leaked, only due to my fault, not tightening the connector well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features I received this a few months back and I absolutely love it, no regrets. The washer dryer set have 'smart talk' technology so it helps with efficiency and so far one of the best adult purchases I've made yet!
