GE GFDR270EHWW Dryer Review
The RightHeight might be a good fit.
By the Numbers
The best way to determine how well a dryer works is to collect data on temperature and water removal. Compared to the rest, the GE GFDR270EHWW came across as slow but steady.
Normal & Delicate
The Normal and Delicate cycle tests consist of 8 lb. loads made up of towels, sheets, and pillowcases. We wet these standardized loads to 1.7 times their weight, and place each in a cycle with humidity and temperature sensors.
The Normal cycle took about an hour to complete. It consistently got test loads 99% dry. The temperature sensors picked up a maximum temperature of 166°F—warm enough to wear delicate fabrics over time.
The Delicates cycle took, on average, an hour to complete, and it removed 80% of all moisture—not a bad result. We recorded a high temperature of 101°F—well within the acceptable temperature threshold for fragile fabrics.
Quick Dry & Bulky
We used a test comforter wetted to 1.5 times its weight to see how well the Bulky cycle works. It took, on average, an hour and fifteen minutes to complete. With the Detangle feature on, our test comforters came out 97% dry—an amazing feat. Most dryers can't even get past 60 percent.
The Quick Dry cycle proved to be a misnomer. Although it got 4 lb. test loads completely dry, it required 50 minutes to complete. That's as long as the Normal cycle on some machines.
