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.

I purchased my GE Washer in early September and I LOVE it! It uses gentle action to clean everything and my fabrics feel so nice after!
It cleans .... Yea!
from Bozeman, MT, United States
Appears to do the job! I'd be careful about using the auto-fill setting ... manual fill settings are easy enough. I have softened water so I use much less detergent, still cleans fine.

I did not want to buy an HE washer because of all the bad things I've heard. I searched all over for a top-loading washer with an agitator that had all the features I wanted and the GE was the only one that met all my criteria. This is the best top-load washer with an agitator that I could find and I am very happy with my purchase after a month of use. It has more features than any other agitator style washer out there. It has exceeded my expectations. It always fills with enough water to wash the clothes (even on the auto-load size select), it is gentle on the clothes, and has numerous cycle options including a hand-washable cycle which is important for my good dress shirts. Also, it has a stainless steel drum, it is quite and does not vibrate at all. Very solidly built. I would definitely recommend this washer and would buy again. I plan to add a matching GE dryer when the time comes to get a new dryer as well.

Completely satisfied. Would buy it again. Would recommend to a friend.
Love my new washer
from Wareham, MA, United States
We are so pleased with our purchase. This machine is super quiet and has great features. Love the automatic fabric softener dispenser, just set and go. Does a great job washing and spinning. My dad always swore by GE washers (he owned a laundromat for many years) and he was right. Best large appliance purchase we have made in a long time. Thank you.

I feel the precise fill doesn't give you enough water the water won't fill when the lid is open it doesn't spin all the water out
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Easy to use
Happy with my decision, stylish and very large tub
