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" Spacemaker White Stacked Washer And Gas Dryer:
We have had this for a little over a year and it broke due to likely poor design. The repairman found socks trapped in the area around the motor and they got caught in the motor. This caused it to break and need the speed sensor repaired. The unit has poor design that allows small items to get into the motor. This is according to the repairman. It does not seem like a few socks should be able to break a unit after a little over a year.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Solid machine. Leaves our clothes clean and fluffy.

I read all the reviews about the noise & understand it is the agitation which is not very good at all. My clothes are not getting cleaned. For the price, I would have not purchased, but it came with my new home.

This appliance as purchased in July, 2014 and required service in October, 2014. The service was scheduled and when the tech arrived it was necessary to order a part. He was told that we would be leaving for Florida in a week and he promised a return visit on the last day that we would be home. When the day arrived no one showed up and upon calling the service company we were told the appointment had been made for a date after we were leaving for Florida for the winter and they would not reschedule to accommodate our needs. We now have to wait until June, 2015 to have the repairs made.
