Quit trying to OVER Fill it! :)

There are all these negative comments... It may say Colossal Capacity but that doesn't mean try to put EVERYTHING in at once! If you fill the tub with clothing as the instructions say...Read complete review

There are all these negative comments... It may say Colossal Capacity but that doesn't mean try to put EVERYTHING in at once! If you fill the tub with clothing as the instructions say on the lid and DO NOT START the water before hand you don't have the dry clothing or dirty clothing issues! Trust me... I done all that at first! :) As for noises, I don't have that issues so I am not sure what that is about. I have had mine since Sep. 2010 the only issue I had was not rinsing enough. But when I called the warranty center my problem was fixed. If I run a LARGE LARGE load in it I need to put it on the fabric softener setting (even if I am not using any) and it took care of the leaving soap suds behind!!!

This machine has not lived up to my expectations and if I had known that I would have to wash clothes 2 and 3 times just to get them reasonably clean, I would not have purchased it. The features and options are very good but as far as cleaning my clothes, it does not do a good job at all. I can see why it has been discontinued. I use HE Tide w/ Bleach so it is not my detergent. I wish I had read the reviews before I had purchased it. This machine gets a "thumbs down" from me.

Horrible washer

By 

from Pooler, GA

Comments about GE WHRE5550KWW White Colossal Capacity Top Load Washer:

I have not had this machine for more than 4 years and ever since I have had it I have hated it. The clothes don't seem to be all that clean. They have spots on them that don't seem to be wet like how does the water not touch the clothes??? even when it is a small load. The fabric softener does not dispense the fabric softener at the right time. I always have to rinse my clothes a second time.

6 yr old washer-drain & spin issue

By 

from Palmyra, PA, United States

Comments about GE WHRE5550KWW White Colossal Capacity Top Load Washer:

Had my washer 6 1/2 yrs, no issues til recently when it stopped spinning & draining completely even after spinning an extra time. Hubby googled troubleshooting tips since the belt & motor were ok & found a problem with the fill tube (?). Take the front cover off & you'll see a tube coming down from the top to a box on the side of the drum. Pop the tube off the box & clean it out, ours was clogged with lint & those Downy Unstoppable balls that didnt dissolve. Replaced the tube & it seemed to be ok. Dont ask me why that made a difference, but it did.

Piece of garbage

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about GE WHRE5550KWW White Colossal Capacity Top Load Washer:

This machine never worked right. As another reviewer said clothes would come out without DRY spots on them. The start button has stopped working, the machine sometimes retains water in the drum and you can smell the moldy water until somehow it drains. We have not been able to figure out what causes this or where it the water is accumulating. It has been an awful experience.

Died after 4 years. I like brands that last a long time. Also GE Outsources jobs, but everyone does right?

This NOT a large capacity washer

By 

from Alabama, United States

Comments about GE WHRE5550KWW White Colossal Capacity Top Load Washer:

The upper half of the drum is wasted space. It is unusable. I have taken clothes out if this washer with dry spots on them. As in not even a drop of water touched these spots through any of the cycles. Does it save water if you have to wash the clothes twice?

Perfectly working machine

By 

from Peru, IL, United States

Comments about GE WHRE5550KWW White Colossal Capacity Top Load Washer:

I am pretty confused about the negative reviews, as my husband and I have had this machine for 5 1/2 years and never had any major issues with it. We do NOT use fabric softener, as a 2nd rinse uses even more water and energy, as does purchasing the softener in the first place. We like this machine, it's simple and effective. At first, it was just for my husband and I, so the smaller amounts of laundry were easy, but now we've added a baby boy to the mix and still use this machine with ease. Double check the cycles you're using, the products you're buying, and how much you're stuffing into the drum. I have a feeling these negative reviews are a lot of operator error issues.

Junk - Don't even buy a refurbished one!

By 

from Indianapolis, IN, United States

Comments about GE WHRE5550KWW White Colossal Capacity Top Load Washer:

This was a great washer until it quit working. Only had this about three years and the motor went out. Not worth replacing. Will not buy GE again. I would've expected this to last a little longer.

Never liked this machine

By 

from New Orleans, LA, United States

Comments about GE WHRE5550KWW White Colossal Capacity Top Load Washer:

Bought this washer because it was energy efficient. Liked the capacity size and the metal tube. Now that it won't spin out and drain I'm going to replace it. Clothes are so tangled up that they have to be put through the dryer to unwrinkle. Forget air drying. Never been sure how much detergent to put in it.
