I purchased this product to replace a similar GE model. We live in a small condo, and the space available for a washer/dryer in our unit is very limited. As such, when comparing options, I looked into 3 different units:* This unit* An all-in-one washer and dryer* Stackable, independent washer and dryer unitsBased on my research of the above options, I chose this unit over the all-in-one based on the reviews of the all-in-one options that were less than flattering. I don't think the single-machine wash-then-dry has quite matured to the point where it can beat a separate washer and dryer--which this GE unit provides at a substantially cheaper price. Further, I chose this over separate stacked washer and dryer units based on the cost. This little unit was about 60% of the cost of the most affordable stacked units.I have absolutely 0 regrets in purchasing this unit. My laundry needs are for only my wife and myself and this little unit will more than suffice for our clothing and bedding needs. You're not going to be able to wash heavy comforters, and it usually takes us 3-4 loads to get through a few weeks worth of laundry, but it's nothing that I would consider to be unreasonable. It's quiet enough--our neighbors have never complained (we live on the 3rd floor of a 3-story complex). Lastly, I like that it is a top-loading washer. Most of the other options are front loading. In our utility closet we also have a furnace that is close to the unit, and were it to be a front loading machine, I would constantly be banging the washer door into my furnace.For all of the reasons above, this unit has served me perfectly well.

Washing Machine Broke Down After 15 Months

I bought this unit about 15 months ago. It worked reliably until recently. Would be nice if it was a little quieter. About a month ago we noticed that the washing machine was gradually getting louder during spin cycles. Fearing that something was seriously wrong, we stopped using it and called for service. According to the repairman, our 'transmission' was blown. Didn't know washing machines had transmissions! Seems like a serious problem for a unit just over a year old. Because of that, I can't recommend this washer/dryer. We purchased a 'Protection Plan' with the unit (which I strongly recommend). So everything is being fixed for free. The repair is not complete yet - but that's another story.

Comments about GE Unitized Spacemaker Stack Washer With Gas Dryer:
When we attempted to use the dryer for the first time it made a load rubbing noise. We stopped it and called the repir number. They couldn't respond for a week. When the repair man arrived, he had to take apart the top pf the machine. He was able to fix it. I would expect that a brand new unit should not have experienced this problem. I feel that the repair service should have been more prompt.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good choice for a tight space.
from Ventura County, CA
I've had this unit for a year now. I did allot of on-line research before buying the GE product. My main reason for selecting this model was for the washer capacity. It has the largest tub size (2.2cu ft.) of all the 24 inch wide models I looked at. My condo was built in the 1970s. We have a very small laundry room. A 27 inch machine would never fit. The "Extra Large Capacity" washer sure makes a difference. I'm able to wash single size comforters with no problem. I'm not sure if it could handle anything much larger. The washer works well. The rinse/spin cycle does make quite a bit of noise (I've never owned a top-loader that didn't). I do my washing mid-day to evening. That way, I don't disturb the neighbors downstairs in the morning or late at night. Other reviewers have commented about overly rough agitation. It's true the "cotton" setting is quite harsh. I'd only use it for jeans or sweats. I use the permanent press setting for just about everything. It does a fine job without damaging the laundry. The gas dryer works well. It's cheaper to run than the electric unit it replaced. Again, the "cotton" setting is a little overkill. That setting gets blistering HOT! I use the permanent press setting on the dryer as well. It works just fine. The load dries in an acceptable amount of time with little shrinkage. I like the hard plastic drum. It's impervious to damage from loose change or car keys. I've heard others complain about buttons getting pulled off. I haven't had that problem. My only gripe is with the lint trap. The lint seems to fall out all over the place when I go to clean it out. I consider that a minor drawback. All things considered, I'd call this a good machine. It fits in a tight space and does the job.
2 Strikes on this unit.
The 1st unit was with the house I bought (Oct 2011) and started having problems about 8 months into it. Worked with the warranty department and they could not get the part to repair it. They ended up replacing the unit completely because of the unavailability of the part. 2nd unit just went bad, started leaking water from the bottom of the washer, damaged wood floors. Hopefully unit can be fixed or replaced again with something more reliable.
