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.

from Glenwood springs CO
The equipment works well--except for the clothes dryer which has a hard to identify defect where small articles get caught and need to be removed by hand. I happens about one out of 50 loads.
so far so good..the fridge i bought is disappointing
Satisfied with Purchase

Clothes come out "softer" than prior washer. And washer and dryer are much quieter than our prior 11 year old Laundry Center. The technology has advanced. Very happy with our purchase

I was very pleased with the installation and used it immediately after they left. So pleased with the way it performed. A little noisy but did a great job!
from NJ, United States
We recently purchased this and it was installed last week. Am so glad you can allow machine to fill and then be able to allow the clothes to soak. Hubby is thrilled that the dryer does NOT have the annoying buzzer. Have done about six loads and so far am very pleased. Was very apprehensive when I discovered all new machines lock the lid at some point; am glad there is a pause button to allow adding items.
To make a long story short, after having a service tech come out 3 to 4 times in the past 8 months, I found out you CANNOT use floodproof hoses. I had upgraded the hoses and had those put on during installation of the washer/dryer. Having changed the hoses, the machine is working wonderfully.
GE replaced the original unit puchased in September of 2013 due to the mechanics not finding a repair to prevent clothing from getting caught in the dryer and coming out with dark, black stains as a result. The new washer/dryer that was given to us in January of 2014 continues to damage our clothing in the same fashion. My husband and I are extremely dissapointed in this purchase and GE.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Excellent Quality and performance
I bought my unit a little over 6 months ago and it has lived up to the quality I expect from GE! Makes my laundry days go smoothly!
from Tuscaloosa, AL, United States
I bought this last year and it has performed very well. The laundry tub is huge, especially for a stacked unit. My only complaint is there is no buzzer to signal the cycle has ended.
