Rated 1 out of 5??by from Terrible This dryer rolls all your clothes into a ball, so that the inner clothing remains wet. I have had to rearrange the clothing every 10 mins. in order to get everything dry! This has caused a much longer drying time and much more work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5??by from Drys very well,when following instructions. Very nice dryer. We do not use fabric softener . No-iron shirts come out very well. The machine does what it is supposed to do ,IF you follow instructions .

Rated 5 out of 5??by from Great Dryer for Small Spaces and families Purchased this with the matching washer to stack. I researched before my purchase and thought this seemed like the best option for small spaces, and so far I'm really happy with its performance. Doesn't over dry clothing and has great features and quality.

Rated 1 out of 5??by from Does not heat well This product is typical of poorer GE quality. The drum was an out of box failure and needed to be replaced immediately since it made a thumping noise that could not be fixed. Separately, there is just not enough heat to dry clothes -- no matter how high you set the machine the clothes essentially dry by tumbling for 1.5 hours. Towels come out wet and need to hang to dry

Rated 5 out of 5??by from Ecomonical and great for small homes / spaces I purchased the GE 4.0 combo washer/dryer for the main purpose of limited space. My house is approximately 750 square feet total and the washer/dryer hook-up is located in my kitchen. Prior to purchasing, I had a top-end loader washer and dryer and both took up quite a bit of living space. This unit is small enough to fit in the corner of the kitchen - yet handle my weekly laundry. So far, I've been extremely pleased with the quality and performance. Keep in mind, it is designed for smaller loads and the run-time is more on the longer side. However, as a single household - it handles my needs very well. I highly recommend.
