Really like the clear display and the connectivity

Ozzy88 10/16/2020

It is really convenient to be able to operate this appliance from my phone. I especially like to be notified that the dryer cycle has completed and I can extend the drying time for wrinkle prevention.

Love the look and features, but it RATTLES!!

tMac275 9/30/2020

I love the look of this dryer as well as all the features but it intermittently makes a rattling noise which is pretty significant periodically throughout the drying cycle. Almost sounds like stuff is loose in there which you don't expect from $1000 dryer. WiFi was difficult to connect & required a call to tech support. I'm pretty tech savvy, but the directions are lacking. Too generalized. Stated to hold the button for 3 seconds.. support suggested 10 seconds and that worked. Washer and dryer react differently during setup which adds to the confusion. One starts out blinking then goes solid and the other didn't even light up until it was activated. Otherwise, once setup, it's a pretty useful feature. It sends an alert when laundry has been sitting for a bit so you can activate the extended tumble feature from the app. It also knows what cycle you washed on so it dries accordingly, if you use the "washer link" setting. Dries much quicker than my old dryer. JUST WISH IT DIDNT RATTLE SO LOUDLY.. pretty obnoxious :(

Poor quality

Jasonalan1995 9/10/2020

It takes 5 hours to completely dry a small load of laundry. Great large capacity unit, but expect to have it run for an entire day to get things completely dry. This is the first gas dryer I've ever bought. I would not recommend this unit or manufacturer to a friend or family!

Large capacity

Lara8992 8/5/2020

Great dryer, large capacity and I like the enclosed lint screen. As with the matching washer, good luck with getting the WiFi to connect with GE once you've downloaded the app, still haven't been able to. The sound settings are very quiet and I never hear them go off. I use to have an LG set and I miss the little melody it play at the end of the cycle. Never forgot about my load of laundry and now I always forget about it. Back to the reason it is a bummer I can't get the WiFi to work and receive the notification on my phone.

Great Machines!

Dev0208 6/18/2020

I did a lot of research when choosing my new washer and dryer, and the GE 850 models were exactly what I wanted. I love the ease of use, steam and santize options, and most of all the fresh vent feature. I've had the washer and dryer for over 2 weeks and have done dozens of loads of wash - dedicates, king size bedding, whites, etc. The clothes just feel and smell so much fresher than with my old washer and dryer. My old top loader had a terrible mildew smell sometimes, and I worried about that smell with a front loader but there has been NO smell from using the fresh vent feature. Highly recommend these machines! The only negative is the lint collector could have been a better design. My old dryer was very simple to clean out.

Dryer would never dry anything.

Mervyn 6/5/2020

We ordered both a GE washer and dryer from Lowe's. Waited two weeks for the delivery. The washer seems to work OK, but the dryer would never work. Even on manual dry it would take about 3 hrs to dry a load of clothes or bed sheets. Lowe's ordered another dryer and after two more weeks the dryer came to our house, but it was never installed because it was damaged during transit. Lowe's ordered another dryer, it has been three weeks and it has not arrived. NOT HAPPY! I took out the Lowe's extended 5 yr warranty also. If this dryer cannot be installed in our home next week, we are going to return all for a refund.

dbaity8377 6/2/2020

So far I love this dryer. I have only had it hooked up for a few days and have used it twice. It drys really fast even with a double load inside. I live it. Steam works well too. If you dry a load and take it out the next day, just hit the steam and all the wrinkles are gone.
