GE DSXH43GFWW

Companion Washer - WSXH208HWW Review




Dryer Pros and Cons
Drying Provides standard drying cycles that are effective for most types of fabrics. Does not offer advanced steam or sanitize options that counter wrinkles or bacteria and are available on about 60% of new dryers.  
Cycles Number of cycles and options is 69% lower than average and ranks in the bottom 1% of new dryers for POOR program selection and flexibility. Fewer cycles sometimes makes it harder to meet your fabric care needs.  
Drum Drum material is comprised of adequate but less desirable materials such as steel, plastic, or porcelain. Stainless steel is more durable and less resistant to damage, odors, discoloring, or static build-up.  
Capacity Capacity is 21% lower than average and ranks in the bottom 1% of new smaller size dryers. The DSXH43GFWW holds about 1.5 cu ft less laundry than the average new dryer. Smaller is cheaper, but less convenient.  
Sensor One of the few new dryers that does not deploy moisture sensors to automatically stop the dryer when clothes are dry. Clothes can potentially become damaged due to overheating and energy can be wasted.  
Price Price per cubic foot is 18% lower than average and ranks in the top 25% of new clothes dryers for BEST affordability. Based on the MSRP, each cubic foot costs about $27 less than the average new dryer.


GE DSXH43GFWW Dryer


Performance Ratings
Temp
Settings
4 Settings - Less than average number of temperature settings. Most new dryers have five settings, and some even have six. The more settings available, the better the choice and care for your fabrics.  
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
No Sanitize Cycle - There is no special cycle that uses high-temperature heat or steam to sanitize pillows, stuffed animals, or other non-washable items. Helps remove bacteria and allergens.  
MSRP $699 - Manufacturer's Price (MSRP) is 37% lower than average and ranks in the top 10% of new clothes dryers for BEST overall price. You should also consider the GE DSXH43GFWW 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 Stackable - Like most new front-load matching dryers, this model can be stacked vertically with a washer to save space, and allows one unit to be accessed comfortably at shoulder level. Great for small rooms.
Reverse
Door
Reversible Door - The GE DSXH43GFWW 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
No Filter Indicator - There is no visual reminder on the DSXH43GFWW to change the lint filter. Most of us are remiss in this area and a clogged filter light is very helpful. Available on about 50% of new dryers.  
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.
