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:
I have had this washer for two weeks now. I got rid of my four-year-old front loader which was absolutely disgusting. I went back to the old style top loader with agitator, even though this is an energy efficient machine, I have had this washer for two weeks now. I got rid of my four-year-old front loader which was absolutely disgusting. I went back to the old style top loader with agitator and I can fit my comforter with no problem. The cycles are not too long either. I am so glad I did this. Great washer!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this clothes washer less than a week ago and do not like it. It was recommended and I can't believe I bought it. I have had trouble with many of the GE appliances I have bought. My last GE washer lasted only two years.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Very good washer!

Such a welcome change..a washer that actually does what it's designed and advertised to do..I was determined to buy a brand OTHER than my old washer and I'm glad I did!
Worst washer ever.

from Demorest, GA
I bought this washer after many months of checking out the competition. This is the worst washer I've ever owned. It doesn't clean clothes and due to the design of the agitator, clothes are frequently damaged ( holes torn in them, ties and belts broken, etc.).

Very dependable and reliable. Basic settings that offers just enough variety of washing cycles.
Great washer. Quiet, and uses a lot less water tha
from Dayton, OH, United States
This was a replacement for a 20-year old Kenmore washer. I looked at non- agitator and front loaders, but I need an agitator for finishing handwovens. I'm very happy with the washer. It is much quieter than the old one. I like the precision fill so I am not wasting water. My only nit is that unlike the dryer, it does not remember my settings. I wash everything in cold water and it keeps choosing warm. I think the default should be cold. Great job of spinning out the water so items dry faster. Love the stainless tub.
Sounds like an airplane
from Western Kansas
I really like this washer and all the options but when it spins my husband and I say it sounds like an airplane.
