Over all the washer is okay, wish the agitator moved back and forth like older model washers, because it washes clothes better. Don't like the locking lid, because I don't like softener dispenser. I like to add the softener when the tub is full of water, so you don't get blue staining on light clothes. Would of liked a separate selection on the knob for an extra rinse, also the minutes for each wash on the knob.

POOR DESIGN THAT DOES NOT CLEAN CLOTHES
BOUGHT THIS MACHINE 5 DAYS AGO AND IT IS GOING BACK TOMORROW. THE SO CALLED HEAVY DUTY AGITATOR MOVES CLOTHES SO SLOW I COULD DO BETTER WITH A 5 GALLON BUCKET AND A WOODEN...Read complete review
BOUGHT THIS MACHINE 5 DAYS AGO AND IT IS GOING BACK TOMORROW. THE SO CALLED HEAVY DUTY AGITATOR MOVES CLOTHES SO SLOW I COULD DO BETTER WITH A 5 GALLON BUCKET AND A WOODEN STICK. IT TAKES OVER 45 MINUTES TO COMPLETE A CYLE SET ON CASUAL LIGHT. IF YOU WANT YOUR CLOTHES TO GET RINSED, YOU HAD BETTER REMEMBER TO PUSH THE DEEP RINSE BUTTON. IF YOU DON'T, THE TUB DOES NOT FILL BACK UP FOR THE RINSE CYCLE, IT JUST SPRAYS WATER OVER THE CLOTHES IN THE FINAL SPIN. WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT OPEN THE LID AFTER IT HAS STARTED TO AGITATE. IF LID IS OPENED MACHINE STOPS, BLINKS LIGHTS, CLICKS AND BUZZES, AND IF YOU ARE LUCKY IT MIGHT START TO WASH AGAIN. THE SPIN CYLE RUNS AT A REALLY HIGH RPM, WHICH IS A GOOD THING. STRANGELY ENOUGH, AFTER DOING ALL THIS SPINNING TO REMOVE THE WATER IT SPRAYS A BLAST OF WATER ON THE CLOTHES WHEN IT SHUTS DOWN. STUPID DESIGN, LOUSY MACHINE.

Only washed 2 loads so far but very pleased with how clean clothes looked
Okay but not great
from Ft Lauderdale, FL, United States
Washing machines have really changed since I last purchase one almost 13 years ago. This GE set cleans the clothes well, but the washing machine seems to be very light weight with little insulation. It is very noisy and we have had a problem with it "walking" around the laundry room even though we have had it leveled twice and make sure that all loads are properly balanced. The dryer does a good job but there is no light in it. I feel that prices have gone up and quality has gone down.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
looks nice, but......
from Pinehurst, NC, United States
This washer looks nice but takes so long to wash everything and never uses enough water to truly wash and rinse the items well.The washer doesn't really agitate the items either. I also have well water that contains iron so I need the option to have a washer that actually uses enough water to truly do its job. Very disappointed in all the HE washing machines on the market now. These machines are being designed by people who obviously don't do laundry.
I bought this a month ago and am not happy with it
from Largo, FL, United States
I bought this a month ago and am not happy with it because it shakes too much during the spin cycle and for too long. I have to pause it and watch it carefully so it will not go off balance.
Easy to install and operate!
from Topeka, KS, United States
I just installed this product myself today, and love it already. Controls are easy to operate and the different settings for colors/whites/bulky bedding are super. Definitely great quality for a very reasonable price.
from Maine, United States
I bought this a month ago and so far I love it! I am amazed at how large the tub is in this machine! Just incredible! The machine itself is so lightweight compared to my old one. But I'm not complaining about my old one at all. That baby lasted me 23 years!!! Which is why I'll only buy GE appliances. It is a smidge noisy but who cares? It's not going to drown out any other noise or wake a baby. This washer is well worth the money!
VERY GOOD WASHER
from Jasper, Texas, United States
PURCHASED A LITTLE OVER ONE MONTH AGO SO FAR SO GGOD WHITE COME OUT WHITE, HAD TO GET USED TO THE SOUND, WERE USED TO A LOUD WASHER
from Flint, MI
After being without a washer, purchasing this piece of joy is a much welcome! The tub size is large enough to handle our family of 4 and then some! Temperature settings are easy to manage for the perfect size load.

Features are more than adequate; runs quietly. All as expected of a GE!
