GTDP490EDWS is rated 4.4829 out of 5 by 731.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice The dryer is ver efficient and seems to dry the loads quicker than my older model - which is the same version of my new one. I would definitely buy this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from QUIET OPERATION..CONTROLS ALLOW CUSTOM DRYING This dryer is a gem. The controls allow many options for selected drying. The end-of-load buzzer is loud with a full decibel range adjustment. This replaced an electric Maytag dryer. I purchased this dryer with the matching GE WASHER MODEL #GTWN4250M1WS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Went Back to GE! I purchased this GE Dryer after dealing with another brand for several years. I like the way the dryer works and how quickly it dries a load. The dryer signal is harsh and can not be reduced to a low sound without completely turning the sound off. The lint filter is flimsy and lets a lot of lint through. It is also hard to clean / empty. This was the most disappointing part of this dryer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Drys quickly Had it about a month. Timer quit working, Had to call out a GE repairman and was fixed after three weeks at no charge. It drys quickly but hope there are not going to be any more problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance This product is definitely consistent - my comments are similar to what others have posted. I love the dryer as it does dry very quickly. And, the sensor is definitely helpful as my clothes don't feel "crispy" when I take them out...i.e. over-dried as with other dryers I have used. They still feel soft when I take them out and I have not used fabric softener of any kind. And just as with the matching washer, I like the variety of settings. The only true complaint I have about the dryer is the "done" signal, as another reviewer mentioned. The first time I heard it, it scared me to death it was so loud and harsh. No way to turn it down, only off - so now I just have to try an check on the dryer every now and then. However, there is a wrinkle care setting if you are concerned about not catching it on time and having wrinkles set in (but I admit I have not yet used this setting). I haven't really thought about the lint trap as being problematic as others have stated. Although it is flimsy, it doesn't bother me. There is some lint that gets through and it is difficult to get out of the corners, but I am fine with it.
