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.

features are easy to use

Since we purchased this Washer clothes are cleaner it doesn't twist the clothing
from Arthur, IL, United States
My other washer and dryer was about 7 years old and although still working I was always frustrated with everything being off balance. We have limited room in our laundry room (depth) and this worked out perfect!! I actually don't mind doing laundry anymore.
It has all basic features
from San Pablo, CA, United States
I am satisfied. I like the programming feature in my washer, This helped me avail the cheapest electricity rates..
SPIN CYCLE IS CRAZY
from Los Angeles, CA, United States
First of all the agitator is so quiet that it barely moves so your clothes don't get washed very well. Then the SPIN cycle shakes your whole house like crazy. So I have to say I would not recommend this washer to any of my friends. Look for a different washing machine.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great Washing Machine
My previous HE front load washer did not get our clothes clean - towels smelled musty - sheets had a funny odor, etc. I love this new GE washer - I determine how much water is needed and the clothes come out smelling great! Lots of options for every load - big or small.

I've always owned ge appliances good product got a lot of years from their washers
from Indianapolis, IN, United States
So far so good! This was a difficult purchase since I was a Maytag repairman from many years ago. We have had this washer for over 4 months and so far I like everything about it! It is very quiet and does a good job of washing everything. I like the fact that it does have an agitator but still handles very large loads. If it holds up long term I will continue to buy GE appliances.
So simple and energy efficient!
from Lake Havasu City, AZ, United States
I bought this strictly sight unseen and off of the reviews. My old washer had lasted 15 years. I was looking to update with all the bells and whistles as I do at least 1 load a day, that being said... The fancier was not better. I wanted simple and efficient. This washer has an agitator, is quiet and cleans great! When I did the first couple of loads I didn't think there was enough water and kept adjusting the load size. You really don't need to do that, the only thing I find myself still adjusting is the spin, for more energy efficiency it will do an extra spin which wrinkles the clothes a little more than I care for. I am still out on the fence with the control panel being higher tech than the good old push and pull controls I' m used to!!!! I am so picky about my laundry and I am really happy with my choice. I really did buy this off the reviews so I hope my will help you!
Agitation too slow
from Byron Center, Mi.
Don't feel my clothes are getting as clean as my older GE. Seems like i have less suds and have to always fill my tub with extra water in order to get proper agitation. Am I doing something wron or am I using the wrong setting. I really would appreciate a call from your customer service.
