Since I am used to front loaders being German, I have wanted to try a, what I therefore consider "European Style" washer for a long while and when my regular top loader zonked, I decided to try one. I have been careful to follow the instruction manual to the "T", and let me just say, that after much tweaking with detergents and a couple of freshening aids, I have finally found what works to get my clothes to a point where I can now be satisfied with the way they come out the wash. Constructing the next Generation of front loaders I would recommend allowing for just a little bit more water, as the German machines do. In my opinion, having to use the longest program to get my clothes smelling clean costs more energy than allowing for a little more water for each cycle using a shorter program? With that seeming to be the aim, it does not serve its purpose. However, I enjoy using this machine and everything else about it. Just a little bit more water for each cycle, and you will have a 5 Star ;))

Product is quiet and uses little water. Product goes off balance when washing towels and can take up to 2½ hours. Going off balance made the machine break while under warranty. It cannot wash rugs, even small ones. Has mildew smell that will not go away. After 2½ years, we traded it (and the dryer which was very good) for a large capacity top loader that doesn't smell, isn't high efficiency but can wash towels and rugs without going off balance or taking over 2 hours to wash.

Smaller than advertised
from Virginia Beach, VA, United States
Comments about GE GFWN1100LWW White Frontload Washer:
I only have one complaint and that is the size of the drum. This is advertised as large enough to wash a king size comforter but mine is not. I cannot even fit one into the drum much less wash it. If I had known, I would have chosen another model.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comment on this review
I bought this washer in April 2013 from a person who purchased it new in summer 2012. It worked for about 5 loads before I needed service. It is in a vacation house so it has been used a total of maybe 20 loads since I bought it. I have replaced the inverter board and I just replaced the hot water intake contol valve. It did not work even ONCE after the HW valve was replaced - will not agitate or spin. (Yes, I see that it is no longer manufactured. I am writing this review because I have had successful resolution of other appliances with probems after 1 or 2 repair efforts - NOT so with this one. It just keeps getting worse so I am going to take it to the recycling center.)
not a happy camper
from Maine, United States
main board and inverter board needed replacement after barely three years, we ended up just buying a new machine.
machine does not stop on its own
from Nassau, New Providence, The Bahamas
The machine does not stop on its own eg. it counts down to eight minuted then goes back up to 11 mins and continues to do this on the rinse cycle.
Fabric softener not dispensing
from Pugh pa
I bought this front loader about 3 years ago. It's been great until this problem. I have cleaned the dispenser and the area above plus the drum several times. Where can the problem be and how can I fix it?
OVERALL VALUE AND EFFICIENCY

This washer cleans thoroughly and uses very little water/electricity.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Very user-friendly and great features
from Virginia Beach, VA
This washer machine is very easy to use and has several wash cycles including colors, whites, speed wash, delicates, stain, etc. It holds a significant amount of clothes and is very easy to pause after it has started if you forgot to put an item in it. The washer (and matching electric dryer) are very quiet when in use also.
from Charleston, SC, USA
This machine is SO quiet, you hardly know it's on! Several washing cycles to choose from, and the clothes come out clean!
from Kenduskeag, ME, USA
This has been one of the best washers that we have owned. Have not had any problems with the unit. Cleans all loads very well with no issue even with maxing out with towels. Very stable and quiet unit.
Perfect for a medium sized family
from Queen Creek, AZ, USA
Bought this machine to replace top-loader that had finally seen its last days. Family of five with kids who go through wardrobe changes like a Broadway show so it's running constantly. Machine has held its own and more with no increase in electricity usage and only minor maintenance. Quiet yet powerful enough to clean the toughest stains a 5 year old can create. Love this washer!
