The GE Gas Dryer was our first dryer; we received it used. From the beginning we had issues with it. For starters, the dryer was not heating properly. We replaced the core heating element, and the dryer worked. From then on, it would take multiple cycles to dry clothing, even small loads. Also, the capacity of the dryer was so small. We were never able to dry larger items such as our comforter, blankets, and sleeping bags. Load Capacity We often resorted to hanging as much of the load as we could because the capacity of the dryer so small and it would take so long to dry what little we had in the dryer. Performance Our dryer did not perform well; even with maintenance and replacing parts. We received our dryer used, but only a few years old. We ended up replacing it after a total of five years because of the money we had to put it to get it work and the amount of times we had to run the dryer (2-3 times per small load), just to get the clothes to dry. Ease of Use The dryer was easy to use; there are very few settings. It is user friendly.
