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.

Ease of operation
from Springfield, IL, United States
Settings are clearly defined and easy to set. I'm glad I purchased this product.
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?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Westfield, IN
Works great - large capacity even for the small, convenient size
I hate this washer & dryer
from Daytona Beach, FL, United States
Washer sounds like its going to go through my floor! Dryer takes way to long to dry therefore costing me more on my electricity!
Works great and larger than it looks
from Orange County, CA, United States
Holds more clothes than I thought it would in one load.
A nice unit for my mom. It handles her laundry needs efficiently and is great for limited space . Although we had to replace the original unit due to the clutch going out in less than 2 years so I highly recommend purchasing the extended service warranty.
Love my machine
from Virginia Beach, VA, United States
I bought my machine several months ago and am so glad I did. It holds as much as my previous front loader and the dryer is more efficient.
Regular size loads
from Mooresboro, NC, United States
I purchased this item a few months back and absolutely love it and would recommend it to everyone! I love the fact it has a regular size washer tub and dryer. We are a family of four and it works perfectly for us.
Compacted but powerful, gets the job done, perfect
from Monroe, MI, United States
First time ever for a stackable washer and dryer, I didn't think I would like it, but
