When we first purchased this washer we were a bit leery. The lack of what we normally would see for an agitator was not there and it made sounds that we had never heard in a washer before. However, once we started using the washer and saw the efficiency and quality our skepticism soon faded. It does an excellent job of cleaning and the spin cycle is awesome. It spins the clothes out so well that it has helped cut sown the amount of time the clothes need to be in the dryer giving a savings on our electric bill. We are very pleased that we decided to purchase this washer and would recommend it to any one.

We bought the washer on June 30, Lets start with the good features I like the timer, it is a good feature and it is very easy to set up. Now the bad. This is a washer that does not wash your clothes, Do not buy it, you will regret it.!!!!!!! I have tried all the possible settings, and none has done and acceptable job, i tried light loads, medium loads, and big loads, with little, medium and the top level of he soap, yes i did buy the he type soap. My wife was the first to used it, she complain right a way, sadly we didn't wash the first load until a week and a half after we receive the washer, and honestly I though she have done something wrong, so my methodical engineering mind set to the task to prove that the machine was ok and she was just not following the right directions. Like any good husband will do when getting new appliances, or electronics. Now three months later here i'm, with apparently no recourse to get rid of this machine that the only thing that has done is bring problems to my home and dirty clothes. Regarding the testing, Ladies and gentlemen, there was not mistake, i was really wrong, she was right,... right from the get go, and now... we have to do at least three full wash cycles moving and rearranging the clothes between cycles just to get the clothes with a resemblance of cleanliness, and forget it if we try to wash my 4 years old son socks, he walks all over the house on them, and his socks are what i would call heavily soil, but this was no issue for our old washer (God bless her soul, it died after 10 years of good service), the old washer up until its early demise able to handle my son socks with ease, no issues there, his heavily soil socks were clean.. kudos to the old timer. Now, the new GE washer does not even try to clean them up, i'm beginning to think it has a phobia.... a phobia to wash, a phobia to clean. I can just but wonder, how GE a leader in many industries could let this horrific machine get in to an assembly line, and worse in the market. This machine is suppose to be a washer, but does not wash, sacrificing the core competence of a product for nice belts and suspender is not even rational. I do for sure had fired the test engineer (s) that let this machine pass. It is really a shame and it has soiled not just my son socks but the high regard i had for GE products Future Buyer Please be ware and don't make the same mistake i did.

Water level too low

By 

from Clarksville,TN

Comments about GE White Top Load Washer:

Uses a minimum amount of water on wash/rinse cycle and doesn't clean as well as it should and leaves soap residue on clothes after rinse cycle.

Comments about GE White Top Load Washer:

I have had a number of clothing items torn up and shredded in this machine. I am glad it uses less water but find that my clothes do not come out that clean. I have to wash only on the delicate cycle

Worst Machine Ever !!

By 

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about GE White Top Load Washer:

I've never posted a review before, but just could not let this go. I've had this washer for 7 months. At first, I thought I would get used to the "new style". The longer I have it the more frustrated I am with it. Clothes come out horribly wrinkled. Soiled clothes don't come out clean. Cycles take way too long - on average a minimum of 1 hour. Spin cycles can go 15-20 minutes. To try to mitigate wrinkles, I try to remember to stop the machine's spin cycle early. It seems to help. But, who has time to "babysit" their washer? You can't turn off the Extra Spin Cycle if you use fabric softener. I use twice as much fabric softener and still have tons of wrinkles. I find myself ironing my knit tops! They used to come out soft and ready to wear. I can only wash 1 king size sheet at a time if I want it clean. Washer has a huge tub, but can only put in a 4-5 t-shirts to keep them within water levels. GE says you can load more into the tub, but my experience is clothes don't get clean. Doing laundry for my husband and myself has turned into an all day job. Lots of small loads all taking each 1 hour. I bought the washer because it fit in my space requirements. I should have bought a traditional agitator machine or a front load washer. I am seriously thinking of selling it and getting something else. Worst money I've ever spent. Bottom line... I use twice as much fabric softener, take 2-3 times longer to do laundry and end up having to do ironing that I never did before! Not good. Ditto

Worst Washer Ever

By 

from Montreal, QC, Canada

Comments about GE White Top Load Washer:

I purchased this washer a little over a month ago, does not clean the clothes, leaves fabric softener stains on the clothing, and consistently makes a grinding noise. What a waste of money. Will never again purchase a GE product...totally useless.

Not enough water to cover the wash is dispensed, clothes get wet, however, I do not feel that the washing machine really cleans clothes.
