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.

This NOT a large capacity washer
By Very disappointed in AL
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?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Perfectly working machine
from Peru, IL, United States
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Junk - Don't even buy a refurbished one!
from Indianapolis, IN, United States
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
from New Orleans, LA, United States
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.
do not purchase
from Florida, United States
crummy, has not been a good machine. does not clean the clothes and has been repaired twice. I am now replacing the unit after 2 years of headache. not happy with GE
Pretty machine but has broken down twice
from Virginia beach, VA
I have a 3 year old machine and it has broken twice. I wouldnt recommend this machine. I wish I had bought a different machine.
from Fairport, N.Y.
Washer is two years old and discontinued? Clothes tangle. I don't know how to eliminate this problem. Why no agitator in this washer? My last GE washer lasted 20 years with no problems, that is why i chose GE again! (see above, recommending this product does not apply, it's discontinued) An additional comment, customer service at GE is wonderful, wish I could say the same for their research and development)
Great Features, Value for Money Spent
This was the first HE washer I've owned so it took some time for me to wrap my head around the concept of a lower water level. After using this washer a few times, I was very happy with the results. My clothes were clean, well-rinsed, and had minimal "twists" even on the maximum spin cycle. We've owned this washer for a little over 2 years and are very happy with our purchase.
This was a huuuuuuge disappointment!
The washer lasted 3yrs. I guess thats the time span everyone is giving it. I just had a repairman come out and check it and was told the motor is broken and I would basically need to buy a new one. I cant believe after only 3 yrs it broke.The price was great but then again I guess you get what you pay for.
