Falsely advertised

L GE 10/7/2020

This product was advertised that it would work on 120 V so I purchased it I am set it up had it plugged in on a 30 amp breaker 120 V. Yes the dryer operates on 120 V but it doesn't heat so what good is the dryer!!!

Jill690 10/4/2020

I have been using this dryer only about a month and am so impressed. The inner barrel is huge, it dries clothes quickly and does not tangle the clothing when drying. The light inside the dryer drum is SO NICE! You can actually see your items inside when uploading/unloading. It was a nice surprise.

Benkg 10/4/2020

So far we love it, much faster and quieter than our old unit. Only thing is that the WiFi app capabilities are a tag misleading in my option, we can only get notifications about when the cycle is done ect, it's nice.

It dries like a champ; however . . .

NotHappyShopper 10/4/2020

It was in stock, delivered within a week. The motor made a horrible knocking noise from day 1. The repairman replaced the motor although I feel that GE/Home Depot should have replaced the dryer. If you bought a new car with a bad motor I think you'd want the car replaced!

Nice Dryer

Ruby86 9/24/2020

This is a typical dryer that has all the options you'd expect. The lint filter is more like a basket so less lint and debris has a chance of getting past it, but it's a bit trickier to clean than what I'm used to.

The lint trap is my nemesis

Knics2 9/21/2020

I was really excited about this dryer and really wanted to love it. It's intuitive, easy to use and has a nice, large capacity. The lint trap has given me issues right out of the gate however. I noticed that about 1/3 of the lint from each load never makes it in to the trap. It gets caught around the door and at the top of the trap. We just moved in to our house and had to have the floors fixed so we started with a nice, clean space and I'm determined to keep it that way for as long as possible so I've thoroughly cleaned the lint trap and wiped down the inside of the dryer after every use. We've really only used it maybe 10 times and I've now hit the point where I don't even want to use it because it's such a hassle to clean all the lint off the door and way from the trap before I can even clean the trap itself. Also, in trying to get it clean today, realized that it doesn't even snap securely closed anymore and 3 weeks in to owning it, I'm terrified it's going to break. I wish I had taken pictures before I cleaned everything out and babied the lint trap back in to place.
