Companion Washer - GTWN5550DWW 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 13% higher than average and ranks in the top 45% of new dryers for BETTER 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 GTDN550EDWW 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 29% lower than average and ranks in the top 15% of new clothes dryers for BEST affordability. Based on the MSRP, each cubic foot costs about $43 less than the average new 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 $750 - Manufacturer's Price (MSRP) is 32% lower than average and ranks in the top 15% of new clothes dryers for BEST overall price. You should also consider the GE GTDN550EDWW cost per cubic foot.
Warranty GE 1-Year Parts, 1-Year Labor - Industry standard warranty for clothes dryers. A few manufacturers sometimes offer a longer warranty on parts if you register the dryer with them.


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 GTDN550EDWW 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 GTDN550EDWW 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
No Dryer Rack - Does not include a dryer rack that allows tumble-free drying for items such as tennis shoes, ball caps, sweaters, or stuffed animals. Dryer racks can usually be purchased separately.  
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 LED Display - Just look at the dryer while you're working to see how much time is left before the clothes are finished. Includes a remaining cycle time display that provides time and sometimes program status.
Controls Rotary-Electronic - Designed with a modern digital control system that makes cycle or option selection easy and convenient. About 85% of new dryers are now fitted with highly-functional electronic controls.
Delay
Start
Delay Start - Fit the laundry around your busy schedule by programming the dryer to start at a later, more convenient time. Allows you to plan around noise concerns or home departure / arrival times.
Custom
Cycle
Custom Cycle - Allows you to program a custom cycle with specific options and temperature settings that you use the most. No need to select everything over and over, just push the My Cycle button.
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.
