In spite of the reviews, I took a chance on this washing machine. My old washer had a broken transmission and I needed a new one ASAP. It was a week after Thanksgiving, and not very many machines in my price range were available for delivery due to Black Friday sales. I found this one and it could be delivered the next day. Yay! The idea of a top loading HE machine was appealing. I had some concerns. I have two Pomeranians which shed year around. Also, sometimes I go away and have to lock them in the house and I have washable dog pads. I was somewhat afraid the machine would not thoroughly clean these. They turn out just fine on Extra-heavy cotton. This machine does make some interesting clicks as it changes gears. Once I got used to it, it was fine. While washing is whirrs instead of whooshes, that doesn't bother me either. As I always have, I run a lint brush over heavily haired items and vacuum dog beds before throwing them in the machine. I have not been disappointed. The delicate cycle is extra gentle and I have even washed some hand wash items without any problems. I wash most things on heavy cotton. This machine has a very fast spin! As a result things on the cotton setting appear wrinkled. These fall right out in the dryer. If I was line drying I am not sure I would like this machine. I am able to flat dry my sweaters, but I wash those on delicate. Due to the spin, it is imperative that the washer be level. This is easly done. Beware that your floor may not be level, mine isn't. If the washer is ONLY level with the floor, it will cause you grief. My delivery person did a great job making sure it was level before he left. I had read the entire instruction manual online the night before it arrived. I was prepared for the different noises. It does say to load clothing LOOSELY around the edges. My daughter packed the clothes in, and this did not turn out very well (college student). I wash the same size loads I always did, just making sure things are loosely loaded. Also, I use liquid detergent. Again, if I used powder, I am not sure this would be the machine for me. My only complaint with this machine is that occasionally I forget an item and would like to restart the wash from the beginning. There is no way to do this without it draining all the water first. The wash cycles run considerably longer than I am used to. On heavy cotton it is about 45 minutes. That is an adjustment, but now that I am used to it, it is fine. As a final word, I have been able to get everything clean and I am very happy. Talk to me in 15 years, the true test of an appliance!

I purchased this washer one year ago. I contacted the company form whom I purchased the machine within two days to say I did not like it. There was no way for me to return the washer. It has so little water in it that the clothes do not come clean, and has no filter in it so cat hair and lint just transfers from one load to another or worse, from one item to another in the same load. The clothes do not rinse properly, even with second rinse set. I have owned GE washers for 40 years, and have always been very happy with them . However, this one is the worst ever!

Great savings on electricity
Comments about GE White Top Loading Washer:
This is the 1st energy efficient washer I have bought and I love the savings on the electric bill. It takes getting used to and you can't over load these washers. Unfortunately after 1 1/2 years it is developing a clunky clicking sound that I know does not bode well.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This product was horrible
The washer experienced broken barrings which cut the tub and broke the seal...after having it serviced, the washer was still not fixed. It is loud and annoying, never spins clothes out good and is to water efficient because it does not use enough water to clean the clothes! Poor choice for a washer! I am very disappointed!
problems within first year
from South Carolina
This machine was serviced by a qualified technician within the first year of purchase. Does not clean clothes, leaves grease on clothes, clothes smell. There isn't enough water to cover the clothes. I was told DO NOT wash quilted spreads in this machine. I have had to keep using the machine due to funds. I am finally able to purchase another machine, but due to the problems with this machine I am scare to try another of this type of machine.
This producct works very well.

We have been happy with the way it spins out the clothes. It does not take much dying time to complete the drying cycle.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This washer does not clean clothes effectively.
from Phoenix, AZ, USA
I wish that I had read reviews of this washer before purchasing. Our clothes and towels never look or smell clean. Now the washer will not drain or spin, and it only fills once in a while. After two service visits and new parts, the machine still does not start it's spin cycle. We chose a "high efficiency" machine to conserve on water usage. If I had known how truly inefficient this washer was at cleaning, we would have stuck with a traditional fill and agitation system. We've trusted GE for many, many years, but we are deeply disappointed with this product.

Basic, does the job, the humming sound is bit annoying other than that happy with my clean clothes.
This washer does not sufficiently clean laundry.
from Canton, GA
It is not surprise that this washer is no longer manufactured. It is a failure at cleaning soiled laundry. Only items needing a gentle or hand wash that are small get clean. One set of sheets is pushing its limit. It will not pull even a full sized mattress pad completely into the "infusor." Even the GE serviceman told me it was not a machine for a family's laundry needs. I should have returned it within 30 days. GE should replace every one sold as they are useless. I am not saving water, since I have to re-wash many laundry items. I will donate or recycle mine soon. I can't sell a machine to anyone that doesn't clean.
GOOD BANG FOR THE BUCK
from Anaheim, CA, USA
I love it! I can wash comforters, etc. with ease. The only problem is that I cannot wash my bathroom rugs due to the content. The washer got clogged within the first 4 months of washing bathroom rugs. Otherwise, a good deal!
Product is not a good value
from Brooklyn, NY, USA
I purchased this about 6 months ago and have had not been happy with it. I wish I had read the reviews but my washer broke and I needed one immediately. The clothes get tangled, dark clothes have a lot of lint and they suggest to put the clothes in the dryer, I don't have a dryer so I have to spend time with a lint brush getting off the lint. ALso some of the clothes don't get wet and my biggest problem is the fabric softner. It leaks fabric softner on the clean clothes after the rinse cycle. I have had to wash them twice this is time consuming. Not a good product and I wouldn't recommend it.
Product is most unsatisfactory. It does not get clothes clean.
This washing machine has definite performance issues. There is not enough water in each load. It is not a soil factor with us. I pre-spot everything with shout before washing. It is a matter of body odor not getting removed from all the items....sheets, towels, clothing, etc. I have experimented with the features and now wash with hot water. I have lengthened the washing time, but still have found the odor to be in the clothes after washing. I thus continued experimenting and began adding water right after the wash begins. I find I must add 3 to 4 tea kettles full of water to every wash. This seems to help the items to get cleaned properly. What an amazing nuisance this is. This is also something I should not have to do. I notice that GE no longer offers this feature of precision filled only. They include this now with the option to override this feature and select the water level per wash. Obviously be having to extend the wash time and use hot water, I am defeating the intended purpose of high efficiency. We are most unsatisfied with this washing machine.
