I got rid of a Fisher Paykel washer that was only 18 months old-it was going to cost me over $300 to fix the electronic controls and I had already had 2 service calls on it, so after researching front loaders and other machines I decided to go back to basics. Cost was no problem for me but I was SICK of service calls with all the fancy schmancy electronic controls. Some items I will tolerate(dishwashers, stoves, microwaves) but I just want an good old fashioned washer. I read blogs by repairmen and found they like the good old knobs, so that was what brought me to this machine.I will say that it does spin the sheets in a really tight bunch but I haven't tried a slower cylce yet. It doesn't really bother me and I try to load without circling the center post. It doesn't have tons of cycle choices but it has everything I need for family laundry. I'm on a main floor with ceramic tile and have no problem with movement. It's a bit noisier than my last washer but I can sit 4 feet from it and not mind it at all.

This machine broke twice within the first year when it was under warranty and then broke five months after warrenty expired. Problems included not draining water, needing to be realigned, and lastly it needed a new motor which cost [$]....clearly not worth investing after having so many other problems. Don't regret your purchase...get a different machine!

After looking at several models, this GE model had everything we wanted!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this washer for one year now and it has been a joke. The transmission , bearing, and seal has gone out of it twice. Either I have a "lemon" model or they all are cheaply made. The appliance shop I deal with told me this model has a lot of problems. I wish I had known this before I bought it!! BEWARE!!

We needed a new washer and this is what we got. It is quiet and does a great job keeping our clothes clean.
Nice deep tub

Like the large capacity. Had a bad noise problem, warrenty repair fixed it in 5 minutes. Now works as advertised. Very happy with product.
What a disappointment!!
from Dublin, OH, United States
We have had our washer for two years and have had service out twice with no satisfaction. It does NOT do a thorough job of cleaning. In fact, it has put stains ON clothes. And the lack of a functional agitator means that it is constantly getting off balance with clothes/sheets/blankets balling up on one side, and taking noisy "walks" as it bounces across the floor. Too bad none of the reviews I read back then mentioned this HUGE issue. A complete waste of our money!!! Don't repeat our mistake.

My clothes have never been cleaner with this washer
Continually in need of repairs
from Baldwin, NY, United States
We have owned this washer for 4 months and needed to call for repairs twice already. When it works, it's great.
So far so good!

The week before Christmas, my 9 year old GE washer (that I absolutly LOVED!) finally bit the dust. The lady at our local store recommened this machine and one from another brand. I went with the GE because I loved our old one. I love the he, the 20 wash cycles are nice to have, and there is a ton of room for clothes. It is quiet-ish, but we keep it in the basement. So far I love it!
DON'T Buy this washer! It damages clothes.

We have had this washer for probably about a year now. Starting out, we discovered that using anything but the gentlest settings meant disaster. This washer has ripped the strong, woven 3/4" wide drawstrings on pajamas right in half! Not at the point where it was sewn on. It ripped right through the drawstring itself. This has happened multiple times! It has tore apart a sweater and shirt in one load. There have been various other items destroyed. It doesn't make them come apart at the seams. It literally tears the fabric, leaving the garments in a condition that can not be repaired. This happens because it twists the clothes VERY tightly. I've never seen anything like it. they twist up so tight they tear. Also, you have to shake out our items WELL before placing in the dryer because they are twisted up so tight, and often twisted and tangled together. I'm apalled that GE would sell such a horrible product. They've lost this customers business. I'm in the process of replacing my dryer, and will be replacing this terrible washer as well. I won't be buying GE.
