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.

Comments about GE 27" Unitized Spacemaker Stack Washer With Gas Dryer:
We needed to replace the upstairs laundry center and had some time to do so as we also have side by side set in basement. I spent much time looking online and reading reviews and this model seemed to get the most praise. It looks nice, fits well into closet, accommodates large loads, and cleans very well. It is also extremely quiet while operating. My only complaints are that a wash cycle takes an unreasonably long time, and the dryer drum is plastic. Perhaps they are all that way now, but the plastic is synonymous with CHEAP to me. Overall, I DO like this unit and would recommend it to others.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love my new unit. I especially love the fact that I can put my liquid fabric softener in at the beginning of the wash cycle.

Even though I just bought my GE washer/dryer, it was a replacement of a similar one that lasted over 20 years. This new model is super quiet and the dryer takes no time at all to dry large loads.
works well, BUT

Comments about GE 27" Spacemaker White Stacked Washer And Gas Dryer:
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#

I've only used this product a few times but I am very happy with it. I was very happy to find how big thus washer and dryer are. Hold large amounts of clothes.

We built a new small home with laundry located in the bathroom... It was a great decision .. It's compact, quiet, and easy to use.

Gets the job done

This unit is okay for the price. It fits in the limited space I have and cleans/dries the clothes pretty well. The only things I don't like about it is that you can't tell what cycle the machine is on while washing and there's also no dryer buzzer for when a load is done drying. I bought this in October 2013 and had to have it serviced in January 2014. The piece that locks the washer lid broke off somehow and I was unable to use it until it was fixed. The repairman insinuated that it happened from doing an overly large load of laundry (I don't wash anything but medium loads because I specifically don't want to put a lot of stress on the machine). Since then it's been pretty good though.
All we hoped they would be

We are very pleased with these machines, they are working out in the location we choose and all the features work well! Really appreciate the dryer being at eye level.
