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.

Comment on this review
i bought this to replace one i had for nine years. This new one has features i just love. and it does a fantastic job.
I purchased this combo about a year ago and have had no problems. As with any appliances purchased these days, I always get the extended warranty and it has always paid for itself.
Tolerating this washing machine
from Dallas TX
I have been using this washer/dryer set for about a year. I miss our old washer/dryer, but I guess this is what we settle for in the days of "energy savings." (I don't really see the savings when we have to dry loads twice, and when the delicate cycle won't remove simple dirt--just a dirt smudge, not a stain--this delicate cycle is basically a light rinse with soapy water.) I agree with another reviewer who complained about the washer lid not being flat--not a good place to set your coffee. Also, the washer is my number one suspect in the disappearance of some lightweight articles of clothing over the past few months, but I have not confirmed that, so I give it a three rather than a two.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Compact unit, relatively quiet
from Denver, CO, United States
Unit is compact yet has large capacity. Noise is tolerable in a small condo. Works great. Has lots of settings for various fabrics, temps, etc
Average Quality @ Average Price
from Chicago, IL, United States
These all-in-one units are a good alternative when space is at a premium and/or stackables are too pricey. It has great capacity, and appears to work well. Negatives - quality is average, and misses several features: tubs are not stainless steel, dryer door not reversible (no matter what anyone tells you), noisy, controls are click position and not universal, no light in dyer, no buzzer, no detergent fill. But, it does the trick, and sellers mostly price at below MSRP.
from La Vista, NE, United States
bought this used 1 year old, had repair man out and learned ex full load is only 1/2 way in tub line -- water only fills to 1/2 tub for ex large load. what's the purpose of a large tub if only goes to 1/2 way -- this is actually a med load to me. supposed to be a water saver. now I have to do several small loads for washing rather than my usual 4 loads. wish we'd never bought this even used. repairman aid nothing wrong with washer unit. this is how it functions. 1st time using dryer -- tore off string for my pants. what next? I could not afford a new one and good friend had this and NO problems -- just advised not to EVER open the lid --HUM
Defective too soon
In a bit more than a year already have problem. Not easy to find support. :(
Perfect for my townhome
from Gulf Shores, AL, United States
Fits well into my laundry room and is extremely quiet and surely comes out with a clean shining wash everytime. Couldn't ask for a better washer-dryer combo.
Very good service after purchase
from Piqua, OH, United States
I had a problem with the first one delivered, I must say GE treated me right all the way. They made sure the problem was corrected and after some service calls, they came picked up the washer/dryer combo and gave me a brand new one even after 10 months.
