GE DPSE810EGWT

Companion Washer - WPRE8150KWT Review




Dryer Pros and Cons
Drying Offers the capability to sanitize items that can't be easily washed such as pillows and stuffed animals. Reduces common household bacteria and allergens using a higher heat setting.
Cycles Number of cycles and options is 44% higher than average and ranks in the top 10% of new dryers for BEST program selection and flexibility. More cycles helps you tailor drying to your family's needs.
Drum Designed with a stainless steel dryer drum that is more durable than porcelain or plastic. Stainless steel resists odor absorption or discoloration and reduces the amount of static build-up in your clothing.
Capacity Internal capacity of the DPSE810EGWT dryer is about average for a new dryer. Dryers range in size from a minimum of about 3.5 cu ft to a maximum of about 9.0 cu ft. The average size is about 7.2 cu ft.  
Sensor Uses a moisture sensor to measure the water content of clothing as it tumbles, and automatically shuts-off the cycle when dry. Prevents clothing from being damaged by overheating and saves on energy costs.
Price Price per cubic foot is 38% lower than average and ranks in the top 10% of new clothes dryers for BEST affordability. Based on the MSRP, each cubic foot costs about $57 less than the average new dryer.


GE DPSE810EGWT Dryer


Performance Ratings
Temp
Settings
5 Settings - Provides an ample number of temperature settings to select from. It's important to match the heat level to the type of fabric being laundered; helps prevent damage and alleviate wrinkles.
Steam
Cycle
No Steam Cycles - Does not have the ability to generate steam and refresh lightly worn garments, or remove the wrinkles from clothing. About 60% of new dryers on the market now include a steam cycle.  
Sanitize
Cycle
Sanitize Cycle - Sanitizes items with a high temperature cycle that kills many forms of household bacteria or allergens. Especially useful for freshing up stuffed animals, pillows, and other non-washable items.
MSRP $649 - Manufacturer's Price (MSRP) is 41% lower than average and ranks in the top 10% of new clothes dryers for BEST overall price. You should also consider the GE DPSE810EGWT cost per cubic foot.
Warranty GE 1-Year Parts, 1-Year Labor - Industry standard warranty for clothes dryers. A few manufacturers offer a two-year warranty on parts, but dryer warranties are generally not as good as washers.


Convenience Ratings
Stackable Not Stackable - Cannot be stacked vertically with a companion washing machine to save space in your laundry room. Only an issue if you have a smaller laundry room without space for side-by-side models.  
Reverse
Door
Reversible Door - The GE DPSE810EGWT dryer door is flexible and can be switched to open from right-to-left (with a washer sitting on the right side), or left-to-right (with a washer sitting on the left side).
Drum
Light
Drum Light - Includes an internal light that automatically switches on when the dryer door opens. Almost all new dryers come equipped with this nearly essential feature so you can see to unload your clothes.
Filter
Indicator
Filter Indicator - Provides a visual cue that the DPSE810EGWT lint filter needs to be cleaned. Helps you keep the dryer clean and ensure that the proper airflow is maintained. Most of us need to be reminded.
Dryer
Rack
Dryer Rack Included - Dryer racks allow you to dry items that shouldn't be tumbled such as shoes, ball caps, sweaters, and stuffed animals. Simply place the rack inside the dryer for tumble-free drying.
Venting Must Be Vented - Over 95% of new dryer models must be vented to the outside of your home with a duct running from your dryer. A few ventless models are available if an outside duct is not practical.  


Control Ratings
Display No Display - One of the small group (20%) of new dryers that do not provide any visual information on wash program status and cycle time. Makes multi-tasking around the home a little more complicated.  
Controls Knob and Dial Controls - One of the small group (15%) of new dryers that use an older mechanical system that is functional, but does not offer the breadth of capability found with newer digital controls.  
Delay
Start
No Delay Start - Can't be programmed to start at a later time. About 25% of new dryers have the convenience of drying the laundry at a time that best fits your schedule. More important for washers than dryers.  
Custom
Cycle
No Custom Cycle - Like most new dryers, you cannot program a custom cycle with temperature settings and options that you use the most. Convenient capability that's only available on about 30% of new dryers.  
Phone
Diagnosis
No Phone Diagnostics - You can't connect to the manufacturer's repair center and have dryer problems directly diagnosed over the phone. About 20% of new dryers have some type of phone connectivity.  
Smart
Grid
Not Smart-Grid Capable - Cannot be hooked into the present or future local utility smart-grid and programmed to operate when utility rates are lower. Most new dryers are still not smart-grid capable.
