Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Very Happy

KathyP_NC 3/29/2021

I purchased this dryer to go along with my new GE washer. I chose this because I like my appliances simple. I'm very happy with the dryer and it seems to be working well. I have to get used to the "alarm" which sounds when a load is finished - it keeps startling me, which is funny. However, on this model you can control the volume of the alarm and/or turn it off completely.

Flat back is a space saver

Vlahos 3/23/2021

W/Ds keep getting bigger, but our laundry closet stays the same size. The non-flat back model was available, but we had to order and wait three months for this one. Please make more flat back dryers! We gave up on the expensive LG because it broke after 5 years and cost more to fix it than to buy new GE. We're back to basics and look forward to a long life. Only thing I miss is Sensor Dry.

GE GTX42EASJWW Electric Dryer

Tom Bailey 3/7/2021

Good dryer. It has the temperature ranges that I want, especially the Permanent Press (Casual setting) for non-wrinkle wash and wear. The push Start button is a little flimsy, so I hope it won't go bad. I would prefer to more solid push Start button. I like the dryer and I trust GE products.

Only model that fit in a tight space

GrandmaHil 2/24/2021

Bought this dryer as it was the only full size model that would fit in our tight space ( a closet area). Like all the features. Dries well. End of cycle buzzer is loud but adjustable. As previous reviews noted, the door bows out a bit so we had to sand the closet bifold door to be able to close it.

Paint peeling off the top after only one year!

revmaggie 2/7/2021

I have no issues with the dryer itself. It seems to work just fine. But the paint on the top of the dryer is chipping and peeling! At first, it was just a small spot so I bought appliance touch up paint. But now it's peeling all over the place. I have never ever had an appliance that has done this. And after only one year? My only recourse is to pay for a new top or put up with an unsightly dryer in my laundry one. I have mostly GE products in my home and am so very disappointed.

GE Dryer

Dave and Judy G 1/20/2021

Although we like the features of our new dryer, we were disappointed with the way the front design id bowed. We bought this dryer due to its flat back and dimensions as we have limited space. Due to the bowed front, we can not close our louvre door as it sticks out just a smidge too far.

My new GE Dryer

Glenn T 11/18/2020

Not bad. Perfect size for old style wash rooms where you have less than 30 inches depth to play with. Smart looking, easy to use and extremely quiet compared to my old GE. Would call these drawbacks but a little tricky getting underneath the lint collector when you want to clean out excess lint, and I often have to run things through a second cycle to get things completely dry. But I was fortunate to get through almost 30 years with my old GE dryer. Happy I stayed w GE.

We bought ours at Home Depot. They could not install it because we needed a side vent mount kit. The customer service at GE was not super helpful in getting this kit so I made it myself from Home Depot and it saved me 1/2 the cost and hassle.

Replacement

Fried52 11/17/2020

We owned the previous model of this dryer for the last 9 years. Just the knobs and there functions started giving way and were going to be more expense to replace than to just buy a new one. The unit itself had been and was working fine but to replace the panel was going to be a major undertaking. Our appliance guy who installed it and services our other appliances suggested we got more use than we should have expected from a dryer and it was probably past time for a new one. We figured we would just stay with the same model and hope for the same level of good use.
