Finally had to replace our 25+ year old GE washer (great local appliance repair guy - but parts no longer available). I have been researching replacements occasionally over the past few years because I knew this day would come. This is a new model, and I knew that some of the negative reviews here could not be right because those units were purchased long before this model was on the market. Noise and vibration are excellent. This unit is in our main living area about 4 feet from our TV/entertainment center separated only by a set of folding doors. The old washer was definitely loud and the spin cycle would shake the TV dramatically. This new model is barely noticeable regardless of cycle. Clothes are cleaned and spun very well. In fact, my lightweight gym shorts were so dry I didn't even have to put them in the dryer. The quicker drying time (still using old dryer) is dramatic. No agitator for clothes to get tangled up in. I have watched it work a lot, and it is impressive how it uses so little water but makes sure all of the clothes are wetted and washed. We had a weeks worth of laundry to catch up on, and it's done great with all kinds of loads, including sheets, a comforter, and the dog beds. We really like the ability to load it up with detergent and forget about it. Far from being gimmicky, the network connected feature is a real bonus - my wife and I get notifications when the load is done, and again if nobody comes and tends to it. Sometimes we forget when we put a load in at night and int he past, wet clothes would sometimes sit 'till morning. The only area so far that could be improved would be the functionality of the app, as it is finicky sometimes to pull up and get status, but even then the notifications always seem to work. All in all, we are very pleased. The only thing left to wonder about is long term reliability, but only time will tell.

My wife and I purchased this washer a few months ago and really had high hopes for its performance. Installation and Hook up was a breeze. However, upon running our first cycle we heard noises which were far from normal. We called a servicing company to perform an inspection and any needed repairs, we found that the Strator, Rotor, Actuator and Sensor all had to be replaced. (This is a brand new washer!) As some of the parts were on back order or not available at the time, we were without a washer in our home for at least a month. With 2 adults and 3 kids 6 and under in our house, laundry piled up quickly. Fortunately, we have family close by that was willing to let us use their washer until all repairs were done. Close to 1.5 months after purchasing the washer, we were finally able to use it. We were extremely disappointed, however, with how loud it is! Granted, the washer is in our laundry room which is tiled over a concrete slab, the noise could be heard throughout the house! Upon recommendation, I picked up GE Anti Vibration Pads to put beneath the washer. They seem to absorb some of the noise and vibration, but I still feel like the washer is still louder than it should be. On a positive note, the washer does seem to get the clothes clean. But I do feel like there are areas for improvement and how do you buy a new washer only to have to replace some very important parts?

Comments about GE White Top Load Washer:
So far so good. This replaced a 3 year old top of the line maytag top load HE piece of junk! It's quieter than the maytag, seems to do as good or better at cleaning. Love the soak feature. One can add prewash soak for 15 mins to 2 hours before cycle starts. Seems to add enough water for the cycles I have used. If a soak is selected, the complete wash cycle from start to end can be well over 3 hours. Really not an issue here I can set it before I leave for work and clothes are done and look and smell VERY clean when I get home. Decent reviews and seems to be the best bang for the buck, especially if its on sale! Got a super deal on it and extended warranty!

Noisy. Sounds like a rock tumbler
from Katy, Tx
Hooked the washer up about turned it on and it clicks like a ratchet. NON STOP. Its horrible. I had the previous version which clunked and clanged but this is far more annoying. Its like there's a woodpecker in the laundry room. Lid is awkward to close compared to previous version, it feels assisted but slams shut. Does a poor job of spinning clothes dry. Previous version (GTWS8655D0MC) clothes came out almost dry. These are almost dripping wet.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
