Alma, you cannot really export Gedcom files from website in one operation.
But you can use a free software as describe here : From the softwares in the list, you have a option to connect to your familysearch account to import all the data then export through the same software a Gedcom. But keep in mind than with this operation you will lose some data such as some source attached, multimedia data etc.
This kind of datas must been attached again to geneanet.

when i import a gedcom file , i got mistakes in family relations. 2 (from 8) brothers got a new mother which was unexisted (!!). other brothers related to the real mother
