This GE Dryer has lots of room and speed, but is a drag to use (pictures)

With a large 8-cubic-foot drum, the GE GFDS260EFWW electric dryer has plenty of capacity to handle big loads of wet clothes. The machine removes water from items quickly too, but a poor display and cluttered controls make it less than enjoyable to operate.

Big, bad and all-white

The GE GFDS260EFWW dryer is big and only comes in one color, white.

Stack it if you want

You can stack a companion GE washer on top of the GE GFDS260EFWW dryer. Another way to go is to sit them on pedestal upgrades and place them side by side.

Controls with a lot happening

This GE dryer uses a cluttered control panel that looks dated and is hard to parse.

There's plenty of room in here

With an 8-cubic-foot-capacity drum, this dryer can deal with two big washer loads at once.

Don't operate from an angle

The lights around the cycle knob wash out at an angle.

Old-school but not cool

No this is not a VCR or stereo from the 1990s, it's this dryer's screen. Sadly it's also unreadable from any angle other than head-on.
