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.

Exactly what I wanted
Comments about GE 27" Spacemaker White Stacked Washer And Gas Dryer:
I am really glad I chose this unit. It has a pretty large capacity for a stackable. I like that the washer drum spins, making it easier to get out the clothes. The only thing I am not quite used to is one of the portions of they cycle makes some pretty loud noises. The first time it happened I thought the machine washout of balance but it was not the issue. It is just a loud part of the cycle.
Service and delivery comments:
As always, Abt guys were efficient, careful, and thorough.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

works well, BUT
About Me Frequent User
Very pleased with the way this product functions. There were only two stacked models available that would fit into the designated space in our condo so our choices were limited. Washer is much noisier than the one we replaced. And the dryer is the only one I've ever had that doesn't buzz when the load in it is finished drying#
Meets my needs perfectly
This replaced an older stackable unit. I do notice that the washer on the new unit is noisier than the older unit. However, the plus is that this unit has a larger capacity for both the washer and dryer than the older one for the same size unit. I am pleased with it.
just what I needed.
from Glenview, Il
Needed a washer dryer that would fit into a small space. Told my ABT Sales person what I needed and he helped me make the right decision.

DElivery was fantastic,as alvays with ABT.Thank you very much!
Decent Washer/Dryer for the Price
About Me Occasional User
I replaced a 15 year old Frigidaire stacked unit(s). Front loading. Stainless steel tubs. Light in the dryer. Finish buzzer. Universal settings. Etc. The bearings and springs were shot, and it was throwing grease into the washer tub. Too expensive to repair. Stackable units were not only expensive, but too big for my space. So I went with this unit. Before I get into the negatives, here are the big positives: excellent capacity, seems to clean well, a workable size. The not so positives: noisy, quality of basic materials sub-optimal,lacks convenient features (e.g. positioned vs. universal controls, light in the dryer), dryer door is NOT reversible, size. On size - 27" width is great; height okay if you have high ceilings, but depth can be an issue. The washer is longer than the dryer (6"?). Tight spaces get tighter. On the dryer door - no matter what the salespeople say, it's right hinged ONLY. Depending on your floor lay-out and position of the unit, it can be a problem. Having said ALL of this, it's not really a bad unit (so far) for the price and size/capacity, and I would buy it again. Your options are limited for this type of unit.
from chicago, il
Very pleased. Lots of space for large loads.
Good machine, meets my needs perfectly.
Wash cycles seem to run long but the clothes are very clean. Huge capacity. Wish it had an extra rinse cycle, I end up doing this manually, when I need it.
Best machine, ever!
