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!

Worst washer ever
Worst washing machine ever. Does not clean. Darks always have filmy residue. Even using second rinse does not clean.
Great compromise between top n front load washer

I just got this in October so glad I did it works just as great as my old front loader with the familiar top load features
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Do Not Buy!
from Dallas, TX, United States
Bought this 4 or 5 years ago and it is horrible, I need/want some assistance in replacing it with another GE machine. Please help me, I am retired and on Social Security and cannot afford another purchase like this. From the start it never cleaned the clothes. Please help me!
from Texas, United States
I've had this washer three years and my neighbor has the exact same one. We agree...this does NOT get clothes clean. It uses so little water, sometimes you get the clothes out and it parts are completely dry...unless you put a very small number of clothes in it. It also twists your clothes up into tight braids where the inside is still dirty. My neighbor said she runs every load through twice to get her little girls clothes clean. I'm looking for a new washer. I give up!

I wouldn't recommend
from Maryland, United States
We bought this about 3/4 years ago and I regret it. Loosly packed, small, medium, hot water, cold, warm, no matter which cycle - my clothes never seem clean. They have lines of caked up lint and what looks like streaks of dirt that filled the crevises and creases because there isn't enough water to rinse the dirty water from the clothes and the drum. I am not at all pleased. Now there seems to be something wrong with the fabric softner dispenser - holding on to the fabric softner (yes it is high efficiency). We tried removing the so called self cleaning dispenser and replacing it but we have to do that too many times. I spent too much for the machine to get rid of it - It doesn't save us any money in utility bills because I have to run the same load twice, sometimes three times to get that dirty linty debris stuff off the clothes. I see why GE no longer manufactures this thing.
from Chester Springs, PA, United States
Leaves a residue on dark clothes has for the last 4 years. We are replacing this unsatisfactory model with an old fashioned agitator model.
it looks great and yes the features are awesome!
