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.

Stackable Washer Dryer
By Disappointed in MA
from Massachusetts, United States
I do not like the fact that the Cycle Knob does not move as the cycle progresses, so I cannot tell which part of the wash cycle the machine is in. Adding further confusion, the agitator pauses throughout the wash cycle, which continually makes me think someone accidentally pressed the pause button. If I had watched this machine in action prior to purchasing it, I would not have bought it. Concerned that after only one month of use, the lid latch malfunctioned which locked out the controls and prevented the washer from running any cycle at all.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love my Washer and Dryer!!!
from Pennsylvania, United States
I absolutely love all the different features. It also dries fairly large loads quickly (for the size of the appliance!)
By Grandma Cathie
from Wausau, WI, United States
Larger than I thought, purchased as a 1st floor unit, thinking that I would have to keep unit in basement to do large items. Find that this unit handles all but the very largest items (i.e. king size comforters). Concise and easily understandable instructions
Only dislike is no end of cycle notification bells or alerts
from Florida, United States
Does give more space in the laundry room. Dials easy to see and operate at eye level.

Dryer Leaves Black Marks on Sheets
By Dryer Leaves Black Marks
from Los Angeles
This is my 2nd one in less than 2 years doing the same thing. Dryer leaving black marks on linens.The guy delivering the 2nd one (which GE replaced) said it was a factory defect for this model. The size is great and otherwise it's fine, but this is a recall problem. I found others reviewers have this same problem.

Never expected too many issues with GE appliance
I worked at GE and always have had a great admiration for quality of work. That is why I bought a GE washer and a dryer. However, after installation we started the first wash and the water was filling in for so long and never started the wash, odd, water was draining. I used the spin, and restarted the wash it worked. Then, the next day the same thing happened. Again, I went through the spin function and started again and it worked. It does not look right to me. Also gurgling or agitation is rather noisier than any other models that I had. technician said it is normal. But can't GE make appliances that are like others with a quiet wash?
