What’s good about the GE GTD86ESPJMC Dryer is that it comes with a long list of special cycles. It also has a good list of steam modes, and it also arrives into the market with app-connected capabilities. Therefore, you can monitor the appliance right from your own phone or mobile device even when your away from the laundry room. However, it has a high price and its performance speeds don’t really match up to the heft in its costs.
The GE GTD86ESPJMC Dryer Could Not Match its Performance With its Premium Price Tag
In terms of design, the GE GTD86ESPJMC Dryer comes with a size that is roughly the same as any modern-day laundry room appliance. However, it separates itself with one major detail – a large back panel. When you count its rear-mounted control panel (which is also on the large side), the machine has a height of 44.5-inches (or 3.7-feet). With a width of 28-inches across, and a modest depth of 31.9-inches, this particular appliance appears to be larger than what it really is.
Since its controls are placed at the backmost edge aside from placing it at the front, you cannot stack a washer on top of it if you’re planning on saving space. You should also do away with the idea of placing the dryer on a pedestal.
Even though it does come with a limitations with regards to its design, it does bring about a futuristic flair with regards to its looks. When looking at the center of the control panel, there is a large silver knob which you will use in selecting the desired drying cycle. There is a bright blue LED indicator that will let you confirm the position of where the dial has landed on.
There are twelve handling modes and drying cycles, and some of these are Bulky Items, Towels/Sheets, Jeans, Active Wear, and Delicates. It even comes with steam functions and all available cycles come with a “Steam Refresh” for flattening out the wrinkles in small batches.
While it does have a good long list of drying features, its speed don’t live up to par, especially for the price that you have to pay to get this appliance. The GE GTD86ESPJMC is slower as compared to its direct competitors, such as the LG DLEX5000.GE’s offering clocks in at 0.10 pounds per minute with regards to its water evaporation rate, whereas LG’s appliance clocks in at 0.14.
Therefore, if you have the time to wait longer then the GE GTD86ESPJMC Dryer might be a solid choice for you. However, if you’re the type of individual that is always on-the-go then perhaps you might want to look around more for other options.
