We've had this washer for less than 24hrs, but have done 5 loads of wash in that time (yes, laundry was piling up while we looked for a new machine).... and we're delighted with it! (So delighted, in fact, that I'm tempted to go door-to-door asking if I can do other people's wash.... I like watching it do its thing with the lid up, which is doable if you don't mind using a magnet to temporarily defeat the lid-open sensor.) It's mostly very quiet, although there are occasional pops & clicks which I suspect are normal and which don't especially bother or concern us.... but we'll hedge our bets anyway & buy an inexpensive 2-year warranty extension, just in case. The agitator works great! I'm reasonably sure that you can adjust the agitation intensity by choosing the appropriate settings / overrides, eg Colors, Delicates, Jeans, Hand wash, Soil, etc... We LOVE all the gee-gaws -- almost as entertaining as an ipad! The machine gives you a choice: (a) pick your cycle type plus preciseFILL and let the machine decide what to do, or (b) use the various overrides -- Soil, Temp, Spin, etc -- to decide for yourself the parameters of the wash program. We agree with all the positive reviews -- we've had it for only a very short time, but so far it seems like an excellent product, and way better than the 20-year-old model it's replacing!

Wanted to purchase a washer made in the USA. Hoped I was purchasing a washer that wouldn't spin the clothes to the point of permanently wrinkling them. The reviews I read were misleading because this machine spins so hard (even on the gentlest settings) that the wrinkles don't even come out in the dryer and forget hanging clothes up to dry, even ironing doesn't get the wrinkles out. The shiny metal tub of the washer is already showing water/mineral spots and it's only a few months old. They should have painted it the traditional enameled coating that wouldn't attract those mineral deposits. For the longest time after a wash load was over and emptied there was a powdery white substance left on the bottom of the tub. This powder settled all over the bottom of the tub and had to be wiped out after every load. The changing gear noises as the washer moves through its cycles are really loud and sounds like it's about to take off from my laundry room floor. I have stored my 25 year old washer & dryer (still working fine) in the garage just in case I can't stand this new washer and it's "new and improved HE" properties. Can't wait until they go back to the old technology that allows for slower spinning and adjusting the water depth. These properties might not be as energy efficient but your clothes turn out so much better and will last a lot longer because this new HE washer is spinning the life out my clothes. Wish I had bought a new washer/dryer 10 years ago before the manufacturers went HE.

Comments about GE White Top Load Washer:
For the price, this is an excellent washer. It's only drawback is that it is very noisy on the spin cycles.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This Thing Does Everything
from Ridgewood, NJ, United States
I bought this machine a couple months ago and I impressed with its capabilities.
Nice GE Washer. Easy to Use.
from Perry Hall, MD
This washer is packed with features yet it is very simple to use. HE detergent is recommended. The water sensor setting uses the minimal water needed. It has an override setting "Deep Fill" which fills the tub with water for those really soiled loads. The digital read-out lets you know when the load will be done. The agitator ensures the clothes are getting clean, unlike those other HE washers with no agitator.
from Alabama, United States
Great product. Great features. Would definitely recommend.
Easy to use

The product is so easy to use and very quiet. Love the stainless steel tub.

Excellent washer with no problems. However, it is quite noisy.
from Wichita, KS, United States
Just purchased this washer and trying to learn how it works. The installation dudes failed to give me a manual and just an installation guide, so I had to drive way out to the dealer to get a manual printed up. Stupid! So far, I have noticed, while doing a "speed wash", which was recommended before washing any laundry, that the washer makes some unusual noises so this will take a little getting used to. This machine is replacing a GE washer I purchased in 1989 which lasted 25 years, so it has a lot of "measuring up to do." Too bad no one seems to make washers and dryers in Almond anymore. Only white. I have always liked GE, though. Great company!
love this washer
from Wentzville, MO, United States
I love the auto fill and that I can use it as a normal washer when I need that extra water for my heavier clothes
Where's the water?
from Ridgefield, CT, United States
Even on the highest water setting, the tub only fills up maybe halfway. And then the agitator isn't strong enough to pull the clothes underwater. So any clothes that are sitting on top don't really get cleaned. I find myself having to do laundry twice as often as I used to (half loads), which ends up eliminating any energy savings. If you only fill the tub halfway, the washer works fine. But for a family of five, this means we're doing a load of laundry every day, which is extremely annoying.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Washers have changed a lot since I bought my last one 10 years ago, and I wasn't happy with most of the changes I saw. This washer, however, merges the changes with my desire to control temperatures, amount of water and other options I want to be able to choose. I'm very pleased with how well it works, with the extra features it has and how clean my clothes come out.
