Have previous dryers left you disappointed? Did your clothes come out too hot, tangled up, shrunk down, or covered in wrinkles? No longer will these problems be the norm with the

GE GFDR485EFMC electric dryer

. This masterpiece with a metallic carbon finish will do more than just look stunning in your laundry room. It will improve clothes drying and streamline laundry day as you know it.

The first thing to note is that this dryer has a spacious
8.3 cu. ft. capacity
. Squeeze more clothes into a load, or dry off any large comforters without any hassle. Even though the drum is so vast, an
LED light
will illuminate the interior so stray socks and other small items won't get left behind. This stainless steel drum will protect your fabrics and resist rust for years to come.

There are
12 dry cycles
available on this machine: Normal, Cottons, Bulky, Active Wear, Delicates, Speed Dry, Towels/Sheets, Sanitize, Steam Dewrinkle, Warm Up, Air Fluff, and Time Dry. The Air Fluff cycle is a handy no-heat dry, and the Sanitize cycle has been certified by the National Sanitation Foundation.

You may notice that there is both a Steam Dewrinkle and Steam Refresh on this GE dryer. These both utilize the power of steam, but in slightly different ways. The
Steam Refresh
is meant for small loads of lightly worn items, quickly eliminating odors and wrinkles to revive your clothes. Meanwhile, the
Steam Dewrinkle
tackles loads of any size, restoring wrinkled clothes or items that have been tucked away for a while.

Other settings you may be interested in are Extended Tumble, Damp Alert, and Detangle Assist. The
Detangle Assist
is a huge plus because it pauses the cycle and reverses the direction the drum is turning. This will separate items and reduce the chance of wrinkling.

Some additional controls that make using your GE clothes dryer a lot easier are an Add Time button, an adjustable end-of-cycle signal that plays a pleasant tune, a Delay Start that can be set at up to 24 hours, a control lock, and LED indicators such as a cycle countdown and cycle status lights. There is even a customizable My Cycle option!

But the benefits don’t stop at the controls. A
RightHeight built-in pedestal
has been factory installed, contributing to this dryer's ADA Compliant status and preventing you from spending a small fortune on a laundry pedestal. A dryer rack accessory is also included, which you can place inside the drum to allow tumble-free drying for items like shoes or stuffed toys.

The GE GFDR485EFMC dryer delivers high efficiency sensor drying where the temperature and moisture levels are continually monitored to prevent over-drying. That way, everything gets dry fast while using less energy and taking better care of your clothes. This model is Quiet by Design and was even made in America! All in all, you can see it is the total package. Snag the matching GE GFWR4805FMC front load washer as well to really update your laundry space. Find these and other washer and dryer sets for less here at Goedeker's.

8.3 Cu. Ft. Metallic Carbon With Steam Cycle Electric Dryer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 177.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer We got this dryer and it's matching washer a couple weeks ago and we love them both. The operation is simple, especially when you have the matching washing machine. The central selector knob matches most of the settings you find on the same knob of the washer. So if for example you are washing and drying blankets, the same setting "bulky items" is used on both machines. This machine is quiet, handles really large loads like a king size bed spread. Has a neat feature to "dewrinkle" clothes which actually runs a steam cycle for about 15 minutes to get the wrinkles out of clothes you didn't get out of the dryer right away. I can't say enough about this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased This dryer paired with it's washer counterpart dries clothes in about 20 minutes. My old dryer took over an hour. The settings are simple, and easy to use. It senses the amount of moisture in the clothes and will adjust dry time accordingly. It is quiet. Features such as the "detangle" are great for drying sheets so other items don't get tangled into one big ball. Other features are the warm up option I use often, I don't fold cooled clothes...they have to be warm! The tumble option will keep the clothes moving after drying giving you time to get the clothes folded prior to wrinkles setting in. Need to de-wrinkle a dress or outfit that has been in your dresser too long, theres a quick cycle for that as well. I love the dryer. I have nothing bad to say!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY a dryer that does everything! We have had issues for years finding a dryer that could do everything we need. My husband works in sports and needs to wash/dry his tennis shoes A LOT. This dryer is PERFECT! There's a removable rack that sits in the drum, place your shoes on it and turn the dryer on and it dries them without tumbling them! The usual load takes about 35 minutes to dry. My last dryer required 2 cycles - about 2 1/2 hours. Love the height, as well. No bending over and digging through the dryer, but yet can still fold on top!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Longer Shrinking Clothes I bought this dryer to replace my 21 year old unit that had a knack for shrinking things. I bought it along with the matching washer so that I could take advantage of the common cycles and the high speed spin rate of the washer, which wrings more water from the clothes making the dryer perform better. The built-in pedestal puts these appliances at exactly the right height, and they are included with the units at no additional cost. The dry cycle features easy to use and understand, and the ability to customize the cycle is excellent. On my old dryer I always just used timed dry as the other cycles just didn't seem to work well. So far every cycle I have used on this dryer has done exactly what it was supposed to do. So far so good... Once I got these units installed we had a lot of laundry to get done so I've ran several loads through these units. The thing I noticed right away was that the clothes come out of the dryer only slightly warm instead of too hot to handle like my old dryer. That one thing will mean much less shrinkage. The other thing I noticed is that wrinkles are pretty much non-existent using this dryer, even for clothes that tend to wrinkle. I purposely left a load of clothes in the dryer to let them "wrinkle up", just so I could test the steam and fluff functions. They worked flawlessly. I had my old washer and dryer pair for 21 years without a single service call. I am hoping to get the same life out of these units. Only time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Metallic Carbon Robocop closes lost item Stargate When my 13 year old washer failed to spin out completely and could not be repaired, I replaced the matching washer and dryer with these top of the line GE units in beautiful metallic carbon. Though this dryer has a door opening as large as a Stargate, you will no longer lose socks and underwear to the sheet nebulae thanks to the innovative detangle setting which alternates direction while drying, shaking loose the stray items known to bond with sheets and disappear forever. The extra tumble setting ensures wrinkles fail to set while you fold these larger items. This Robocop dryer takes down the electric company when it times out as soon as clothes are dry despite the indicated expected timing created by owner programming. The built in "right height" pedestal and front facade placement of the control panel makes programming easily accessible and at your command. For some unknown reason the outer plastic door window permanently stained with teardrop markings though no liquids were accessible nearby (steam setting leakage around the seal?) but my GE tech immediately replaced the entire door under warranty without question. Great service, GE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GE Faithful We bought a whole houseful of GE when we built a new home. We are very pleased that we did. We had a refrigerator in last 2 homes that we used for nearly 20 years with no service. We had great use for years so were GE lovers. Everything has worked just as well as the reviews said they would. The only problem we have had with anything was the refrigerator was making a lot of noise but when the technician came to service it the only thing it needed was to download new software. That corrected the problem in a matter of minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Drying Time This dryer was delivered in late June, 2013. I have had good luck with its operation. I had not had the need to use many of its features. I found one drawback when I unintentionally hit the power button when I had paused it. There was 13 minutes to go before hitting the power button. When I restarted it, the full time appeared. In about 2-3 minutes the dryer had turned off but the clothes were still damp even though the "more dry" setting was in effect. The only way to get the clothes dry was to use the timed dry function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dryer! After considering several manufacturers, I decided to purchase the matching GE front load washer and dryer. This was one of the best appliance purchases I have made. The built-in pedestal is the perfect height and saved a lot of money compared to other brands that sell the pedestals separately and really make the dryer/washer too high (in my opinion). Thanks GE for making a sensible, practical, cost effective and excellent product. My new washer and dryer look like pieces of furniture in my laundry room!
