GE GFDN110ELWW Review
With an MSRP of $749 and sale prices in the high-$600s, the GE GFDN110ELWW is a remarkably capable dryer for such a low price.
For the most part, this machine failed to deliver perfectly dry laundry, missing the mark by just a hair more often than not. However, it maintained very gentle temperatures, which helps to preserve soft, bright fabrics from unnecessary wear over time. Cycles finished the work within an agreeable time frame on each test we ran.
Amidst a jumbled market of less capable dyers—assuming you can track down a sale price—this GE is a competitive choice for shoppers on a budget. If extra features and specialty cycles are what you're looking for though, be sure to keep on hunting.
Design & Usability
Limited features make for simple navigation
Few dryers have a simpler set of controls than the GE GFDN110ELWW, with its simple knob and abbreviated buttons. Cycles and options are limited, so navigation is quite easy. Within a cycle, one can customize it by changing the temperature or the sensitivity of the drying sensor.
Performance & Features
Quick and almost perfect.
For all its simplicity, the GE GFDN110ELWW proved to be quick and effective, with clothes emerging close to bone dry from cycles that usually lasted less than an hour. While even the ever reliable Normal cycle on this machine failed to produce perfectly dry clothes, temperatures across the board were very gentle. Weirdly, the usually ineffective Bulky cycle was the only one to entirely remove moisture from our test load.
Performance that outsizes the price.
The GFDN110ELWW is an excellent dryer considering that its MSRP is only $749—and sale prices fall far below that. It lacks fancy features, but it does a better job getting moisture out of laundry than many models that cost twice as much. Sensitive fabrics will find safe handling in this machine, which maintains very gentle temperatures across the board. Cycle times were about average, and frequently our test loads came out just short of totally dry, but if you find one of these GEs on sale, it's definitely worth its cost.
