  The GE GTDP490EDWS is an extra-large electric dryer that should be able to dry most household items, from delicate garments to large comforters. It has a moisture-sensor system that monitors moisture and temperature and turns off the machine when the load is dry, and the Wrinkle Care Extended Tumble option keeps the load tumbling intermittently without heat after the drying cycle ends.
