Seemed to be the largest washer size (depth) among the stackable options. Well-made product, easy to use with just enough features. Needs a buzzer to remind you when a load is done, but that's a minor issue. If space is an issue, this is a great option. Can still wash/dry very large loads (towels, etc) and up to a queen size comforter easily.

We purchased this unit in early 2012 to replace a previous similar GE unit that happily lasted 12 years. Do not buy this unit (as of 2012). This unit is apparently a relatively new design/redesign as of 2012 and it was badly done. Considering there two obvious flaws in the first couple months I am very concerned about "what's next".The initial flaw (which ABT dealt with well) is the knob immediately broke. Several other people had experienced this (as noted in other reviews) and ABT was aware of the problem and resolved it quickly by getting a replacement knob and later a correctly designed knob to us.The fatal flaw of the unit is the dryer destroys clothes with "small stuff on it". Small buttons, spaghetti straps, draw strings with knots, and similar items catch in the gap inside the dryer door between the spinning tub and the door (in my opinion). This is a theory I seen in other reviews on different sites. I have also seen it proposed the lent trap catches them. I am not sure which is correct, but the end result is the caught item is at best severely abused (twisted round-and-round) and worst case torn.The ABT service man that came out when we reported the problem was unhelpful (which I find uncharacteristic for ABT) leaving my fiance with the suggestion to not to dry things. To be fair, we have not followed up with ABT again on this issue (though we will be).I subsequent search of the internet found other people having the same problem with the dryer. The proposed solution was to use shims to give the unit a slight backward tilt so the clothes are not pushing against the front of the unit when drying and thus less likely to be caught. I have tried this with no improvement.

60% of the investment made twice
By Janelle Lynn

Comments about GE 27" Spacemaker White Stacked Washer And Gas Dryer:
Purchased two years ago and the chip board shelled out. Do not invest in this product unless you're prepared to make 60% of your original investment again in repairs.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This unit has been a disaster. It started making a lot of noise during the agitation and spin cycles after about a year of moderate use. A new motor had to be installed shortly after the one-year warranty expired. Luckily I had extended warranty coverage. Now it is making a terrible clanging noise after another 6 months. My warranty coverage is now likely expired and I'm looking at a costly repair. Terrible quality.

Wonderful Product-Space Saver, quiet, water saver

This is one of the best purchases I have done, this unit is simply wonderful, modern, use less water than my old one, is space saver, and the Dryer is really powerful, so I think I ended up paying less in my power bill.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

good unit, bad dryer door
from San Diego, CA, United States
the washer and dryer have large capacities but are efficient for smaller loads. i would say i loved it if it weren't for the dryer door not staying open while loading/unloading--it always hits me in the head.

If i could give this negative stars i would. Washer runs to long, doesn't clean, pulls and rips clothes. Sometimes it will run for an hour. Sometimes a day. Worst purchase i have made in a long long time.
