Doing laundry can be time consuming, and it’s usually a problem for busy people. If you’re someone looking for a way to save time and energy on doing your laundry, you may want to check out the GE Profile 2-in-1 Washer Dryer Combo. This laundry machine has the ability to wash and dry your clothes in a single load!

GE Appliances has been a pioneer in incorporating smart technology into their appliances. GE Profile, in particular, offers premium smart features for those who are looking for functionality and style. In 2023, GE Profile introduced a smart 2-in-1 washer dryer combo that properly gets your laundry done – fast and easy.

An all-in-one laundry machine might be a hit-or-miss for some, but let’s see what makes GE Profile’s take on "hassle-free laundry" different. Let’s dive into this review now!

Key Features

As of this writing, GE Profile offers the Ventless Heat Pump Technology Washer/Dryer with model PFQ97HSPVDS. Learn about its key features below. 


  • 2-in-1 washer/dryer – This technology combines convenience and efficiency. This feature guarantees that you can wash and dry a large load of laundry in just about two hours, without the hassle of transferring clothes from one machine to another.

    • NOTE on the Dryer: The model's manual cites that your clothes may feel slightly damp at the end of the dry cycle, but they are actually dry. Since the combo dries clothes at a low temperature in a sealed drum, it feels a little damp on first touch. To remove any dampness, simply take out your clothes and shake them—they will feel dry within seconds!



  • Easy installation and space-saving solutions – GE Profile considered storage problems with this model, and it is designed to be installed almost anywhere. It plugs into a standard 120-volt dedicated outlet. Also, with ventless heat pump technology, a dryer vent is not needed.  This ventless combo is optimized to take up only half the space of traditional washer and dryer setups, diminishing space constraints.

  • Greater energy savings – This model is 50% more energy efficient than standard electric dryers because of the ventless heat pump, as compared to the requirements for Energy Star qualifications. (Read more about Energy Star appliances here!)

  • Smart Features Powered by SmartHQTM – Another feature allows you to receive remote cycle notifications, select detergents, and even download specialty cycles right at your fingertips, making this chore extra convenient!

  • Fast Airflow Drying System – With this system that creates a wind tunnel of warm air in drying, your clothes will be dried faster and more efficiently. This works even with large loads and delicate fabrics - so you don’t need to hang them to dry.

  • Microban Antimicrobial Technology – This is a feature that provides  an extra layer of odor and antimicrobial protection on the gasket, dispenser, and draining system.

  • EZ Access Lint Filter System – This system allows you to remove lint, pet hair, and other microparticles to ensure a clean wash.

  • User-friendly Controls – Aside from the machine’s efficiency, the controls and display of this combo are well-designed, making it intuitive.  Since the controls are positioned high for a front loader, they’re easy to reach, plus they’re responsive. Also, there are white labels against the dark colored finish so they’re easier to read. The major buttons are backlit, and the options are with LED lights.
