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.

Comment on this review
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)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
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.
What has happened to GE quality???

Save your money
from Port St Lucie, FL, USA
I bought this machine in January of 2010 because of the good price. Had I read the reviews first, i would have bought a front loader instead. This machine is a major disappointment. It does not get my clothes very clean. It says colossal capacity, but trust me, because of the water level, you cannot fill it all the way or your clothes will have dry areas. Three times since owning the machine we have had a repair man come out to address the same issue. Towards the end of the spin cycle the machine makes a horrible clacking noise. Since our washer and dryer are in the kitchen, we have to shut our bedroom door to dull the noise. As of today, it is still making the same noise. Do some research and Do Not Buy This Machine.
REPLACING AFTER 2 1/2 YEARS
from Crystal River, FL, USA
This washing machine does not clean clothes well as it does not use much water. Its only 2 1/2 years old and now its making sounds like a geese and water is leaking from underneath. I am having to replace it already. I would not recommend a GE washer to anyone
from Shortsville, NY, USA
Going on the 2nd motor for this one bought in August 2009, and here it is October 2012. Insurance paid for the first replacement, no insurance this time warrent gone on August 30, 2012. Very bad purchase!
Had to replace after only 3 years
from Chesapeake Virginia
I am sorry to say that this was the worst major appliance I've ever owned. I regretted the purchase soon after I started using it. I read the manual and knew to expect different sounds but these were disturbingly loud and startling until we got used to them. The machine had poor wash quality ... cotton setting was too rough for casual clothes, but the casual clothes setting did not wash well. Then after only 3 years, the washer quit spinning and the repair would cost more than a new washer. I am SO dissatisfied, I will not buy another GE product and will advise others to do the same.
