Less than 3 months and it has problems already. For no reason at all it has started turning on then shutting down repeatedly. We have cleaned the pump filter it wasnt even dirty... it is only three months in service. We reset it.... hoping it was a CPU issue... but no luck. Now it requires a service call

When we moved into our house money was tight and we bought a very inexpensive GE top load washer figuring wed get a few years of service and then get something better. 13 years later and one minor repair that washer was still going strong but we decided it was finally time for something more efficient that could handle a king size comforter. We decided to go with GE again and this new washer is way more efficient than the old one and its much gentler on the clothes. The agitator in the old top loader left clothes twisted and wrinkled. Clothes come out of this new washer drier and less wrinkled - and Im getting less lint from the dryer. I like that it has lots of cycles to choose from - and its easy to customize the cycle like changing the water temperature or spin cycle speed. It uses less water than the old washer and so far everything has come out clean. As a DIYer I like that it has an access panel on the front for cleaning the drain water filter - not all front loaders have that. The wash cycle is very quiet. The spin cycle is louder but acceptable - and quieter than our old washer. Well see how it holds up over time but so far were very happy with it.

I have had this GE front loading washing machine for a month now and I love everything about it. It has performed up to my expectations and then some. It has many features I wouldnt normally consider but for the price and the quality of the machine I was happy it was part of the package. I would highly recommend this machine to anyone who wants or needs a work horse of a machine with many great features.

6/14/2018

I checked around for a new washer and found that this GE washer was exactly what I needed. I have an older house with a drain pipe that is less than 2.0 actually 1.5. Found out the hard way - My drain pipe was unable to handle the discharge from a new HE 5.0 top loader washer I purchased 5 months ago. This GE washer was the only on that stated that the drain pipe only needs to be 1 1/4. This front loader drains without any issues and has great features. Added feature there is an easy access door to the filter so I dont need to call for a service tech to open and clean the unit.

5/31/2018

I just recieved this washer from my home warranty company to replace one that had broken. At first I was sceptical about a GE washer mainly because I have always gone with the big money M word company. But I have to say so far I am impressed. It is quiet and fast. I love the way it will adjust the load balancing for the spin cycle so it doesnt shake like crazy. I almost cant wait for the dryer to go out now.

We just bought our first house and I did quite a bit of research before buying this washer. I decided to avoid Samsung and LG due to the horror stories I read about them leaking and the long wait times for repair. This GE model is great and we couldnt be happier. It has enough wash cycles to meet our needs and it gets the clothes really clean. Not to mention that the price was super reasonable in comparison with similar models. We did laugh a bit when setting the wash cycles because it sounds like a video game think Mario Bros when hes collecting coins. So happy I did research before buying. Now we just need to buy shelving for on top

Meh

5/23/2018

I had really high hopes after reading the great reviews for this machine. I am less than impressed however. It definitely doesnt fit a queen comforter without stuffing it in the machine and then it doesnt wash it well. The spin seems to do a good job wringing out water after the wash but it is definitely not very quiet. The finished chimes are nice. It also sticks out much further than my older traditional machine which takes up more of the walk area in an already small washroom. Not sure its staying or not yet. :/

A washer that makes laundry fun.

5/5/2018

This washer does it all and has it all. I actually enjoy doing the laundry now. I love that I can wash my bed pillows and even felt comfortable tossing in my heated electric blanket without worry. I love that I can customize each load to my specific needs. I can choose a delicate load with hot or very hot heavy or light soil and choose a light spin or heavy. I now go around my house looking for stuff to wash.

Ive only had the machine for a few days so have no idea how it will hold up. Cleans well but no better than any other washer. Takes 55 minutes to do a normal load which seems excessive. Spins really well so the clothes are only damp when you remove them. I might use some of the bells and whistles over time but for now Im just glad to have clean clothes.
