Pros: Easy to use, plenty of auto cycles, quiet.
Cons: Lint trap couls be designed better.
As usual,I would like to apologize to whom is grammar sensitive, because I was not born in the U.S; therefore, there are some mistake that I will not be able to see, not the spell check will highlight.
Considering that I had bought this dryer four years ago, and it was my first dryer ever I wanted to wait a while before writing the review, and now that three years have gone, I have decided to do it.
The reason why I had bought this instead of another one is because GE in one of the few brand that actually makes the dryer's drum all in one piece. to me this is equal to durability. Overall, I am very please with the dryer, because it has plenty of cycle, a drying rack for sweaters and shoes, is very easy to use and the time in the automatic cycles adjust itself depending on the humidity of the clothes.
The front panel is white and black and matches my washer, also a GE model. From the left to the right on the front panel the following buttons can be found. On off, the estimate time remaining display, child lock, start pause. I do not have the dryer in front of me at this time so I am going by memory. Right below can be found the cycle selector(6+3),plus and minus buttons, that only work with manual cycles,extra tumble, dump alert, signal, sensor dry level,and temperature.
The cycles on the selector are as follow: Cotton, mix load, easy care, active ware, delicate ( all automatic). Air fluff, time dry, de-wrinkle (non automatic). All of the cycles are pre set by the factory, but they can be changed easily. The auto-cycle constantly self adjust themselves; therefore, do not look at the estimate time remaining because it can advance or get stuck depending on the level of dryness.
This dryer is very quiet and easy to use, my only complaint is the lint trap which is not fine enough letting lots of ling going trough it,a nd getting stuck in the inside walls. A long skinny brush does the trick.
Concluding, for $ 450 I can not say anything but good things about it.
