I was really on the fence about replacing our old school, top loading, agitator style washer with a front loader. I was not convinced they cleaned as well, especially with the low water usage of the HE models. Plus I had heard stories about the awful odors that seemed to be common with front loading machines. We knew our old washer was dying a slow death so I started researching well in advance. After going back and forth, reading all the reviews and talking to an extremely patient salesman at one of the big box stores who answered ALL of my questions I decided on this GE washer. Selling points for me were the outstanding overall reviews, the built in pedestal and the features it offered. One feature I was not willing to compromise on was the steam feature - that was a must have, especially for the dryer. I will admit I was reluctant about having to re-learn how to do laundry, but honestly it was no big deal. I read the book, followed the directions and absolutely love this washer! Yes, the cycles do take a longer, but not too bad. The washer senses the load, and based on the setting you have chosen determines the wash time. It spins out most of the water so even though your wash cycle may take longer, the dry time is faster so you're still coming out ahead. I have yet to encounter any of the 2 hour cycles some people mentioned in their reviews. My loads average an hour to and hour and 15 min. One feature I really love on this washer that I didn't expect to use is the delay wash. I can set it to delay up to 8 hours. If I'm going to be out doing errands I can set the delay so that the load is done when I get home and the clothes aren't sitting in the washer for hours. I have also set it up to wash early in the morning so that when I get up the load is ready to go in the dryer. I have been very careful about not leaving clothes in the washer after the cycle is done, and I always keep the door slightly ajar when not in use (as recommended) to avoid the dreaded front loader odor. So far no problems. It's quieter than our old washer, sings me a little song when it's done and washes the clothes beautifully. I would gladly recommend this washer to anyone. The matching dryer is great, too.

We've made it one year and our washer has been not so good. It's leaked and the water pump went out right before my warranty was about to expire. I make sure I only use GE washer product's and clean it once a month like specified to do so it shouldn't of kaput on me. Luckly I was able to fix the issue since the service man sent out sucked at his job and said my washer was fine when it wasn't. Thank god he didn't work for GE but was referred to us by GE none the less. This is my only complaint about the washer.

I bought both washer and dryers a couple of months ago. I love all the features they both provide. The steam feature on both are awesome! And it has all the features that to clean some of my specialty items. I am very glad I purchased them.

Had to have entire internal components replaced due to bad bearing at less than 1 year old, with nothing but normal clothing loads for a house of 2 adults 1 child. Starting to get loud spin cycles again, less than 6 months after that repair. Good thing the first was under GE warranty & glad I purchased the store extended warranty. Stinks unless you leave the door cracked. Would not purchase a front loader washer ever again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is a great washer. The features I like best are the Load Sense that distributes the clothes, the large capacity, the place for the soap, and the really good looks of the machine itself.
