Just delivered and I have done three washes. It is very quiet and does a good job of cleaning. Simple top loader washer for an affordable price. Prefer this machine's mechanical controls over the electronic ones on higher priced models. In my experience mechanical control panels have a longer life than electronic ones and a less expensive repair rate. I can set my wash water level (five settings) and temperature (3 settings). All rinses are cold water only. Ample size 3.8 cu ft. drum. Three wash cycles include whites, colors, and permanent press. Power rinse option for using liquid fabric softener. Suggest using it if using liquid softener as I stained my clothes with the first wash. Should have read the directions first. Funnel fill for disbursing liquid bleach and mixing with the water included. No need for high efficiency (HE) detergent. Although this model is not rated HE the costs to run posted by GE seem affordable. It will depend on your usage and utility rates. Spin cycle did adequate job of removing water from the drum and most from the clothes. Final test will be longevity. Previously owned this model's predecessor which lasted 9 years averaging 7 washes a week without need for repair. Hoping for the same performance from this model which comes with a one year parts and labor warranty.

This washing machine is lousy and was a poor investment. The clothes do not get clean. I thought maybe I was overloading the tub, so I decreased my load size, after washing my clothes still have dirt smudges from normal everyday wear. After warming up in the clothes ie: pants, shirts, underwear etc. I begin to smell body odors from previous use, such as deodorant, perfume, cologne to name a few. Its disgusting as well as unsanitary. I had a repair tech from where it was purchased come over to see if it was malfunctioning and I was told it was in perfect working condition. HA! Its a washing machine that doesn't get my stuff clean? That is not in working condition. I am highly dissatisfied and if I could get the $too much spent$ returned that was spent to purchase this piece of junk I would in a heartbeat. Never again GE. I purchased GE product because its made in America...this piece of junk machinery is how you pride yourselves using the "made in USA" thing? overpriced garbage.

Comments about GE White Top Load Washer:
We bought this machine last year and got a 5 year extended. Right off the bat we had trouble and called for technician. They found the top ring that has some type of liquid in it wasn't there. So they sent in another drum. After that when we would wash everything did good until the spin cycle / It would start banging around like it was going to explode! In fact I was even afraid to stand by it to turn it off!! Checked level of machine it was bubble on center. Feet were set as per Technician install. I can see why this machine is no longer being manufactured. Wished I had of known of the change in product before I got rid of my old washer. I would have paid the cost to have it fixed!!!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not a fan!

The spin cycle doesn't do it's job. I usually have to spin again and the clothes are still pretty wet.
SIMPLE, WORKS WELL

USE THIS AS A BASIC WASHER IN A VACATION HOME. HAS BEEN VERY RELIABLE OVER THE PAST 2 YEARS.
it works great but after 1 year, the paint under the lip of the washer in back is peeling
Works better than built.

Bought this a couple weeks ago. The wash is good. However, the back panel kind of rocks when I turn the dial. It appears to be made very cheaply. The dial does not match up with notches. I wanted an agitator type machine. I feel it cleans better than the high efficiency units.
Do not buy.

I am very disappointed in the overall performance of this machine.
from Greenville, SC, United States
I bought this recently & options are quite easy for me to choose. I prefer quick wash for few clothes & rarely uses permanent press. White for just white clothes. Noiseless machine I love to use this. :-)

Had to buy this model to fit through door, it's not as wide as other models. Control knob does not immediately start cycle..there is a long wait. Also, you can not open lid to add something you dropped because it stops the machine and it does not restart when you close the lid again.

I haven't had much luck with this washer, still water in machine at end of cycle.
