PRO Simple washer that actually gets work clothes clean. The basic functions are easy to use and understand, enough cycle choices for normal day to day washing. Large capacity metal drum. Non locking lid. Deep rinse option actually gets pet hair, soap and fabric softener rinsed out of clothes. CON A bit noisy BUT a SMALL trade off for a washer that does not need constant baby sitting to stay balanced, gets the pet hair rinsed out and has a spin cycle that gets clothes practically dry.

This machine was the only one I could locate that had an agitator and allowed some manual control of the amount of water filling the tub. It has a lot of options available via the control panel, and appears to be fairly well constructed. I have only had this machine for a week, so I will come back to write another review in two or three months. What I can say now is that this is much noisier than the 12 year old machine it replaced. That machine - "known" for making repairmen "sit around getting bored" because it so seldom needed repair - had as large capacity as this GE (actually, the external dimensions were bigger), but was very quiet. This GE is extremely noisy, even though it was carefully leveled by the two men who installed it. Although it does vibrate a bit when in the spin cycle, it is the wash cycle that is the loudest. Even with the doors to the laundry room closed, it can be heard pretty much throughout the house. GE is good enough to provide a recording of the noise on their web site, but the noise is _much_ louder in reality than their audio recording indicates. If you've ever had an MRI, you'll have an idea what it sounds like during the wash cycle, although it isn't quite that loud. The load "sensor" does not fill the tub enough to adequately wet all of the clothes, but if you use the "Deep Fill" setting, it covers the load with plenty of water. The four loads I have done so far have come out clean, and the normal spin cycle removes esufficient water to be able to move them to the drier. When I do a load of jeans, which often didn't spin down as dry as I would like in my old machine, I will try the extra spin setting to see how that works. Bottom line: so far I am pleased with the function of this washer, but dissatisfied with how loud it is. That is why I gave it a three instead of a four. If it had been a bit quieter, it would have gotten a four. If it had been as quiet as my older washer, I would have given it a five.

Comments about GE 4.2 Cu. Ft. White Top Loading Washer:
Purchased the washer about a month ago and I wish I could return it. If there is a heavy item in the machine it shakes so bad it could walk across the wash room by itself and yes its balanced
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Clothes Very Clean
from Los Angeles, CA
I've been using the washing machine for about two months. I chose a machine with an agitator and have been very pleased with the results, clean laundry, well rinsed, and the length of time it takes to wash a load of laundry. I like the option for adding more water if needed (Deep Fill). The settings for Load Size, Temperature, Options (i.e., extra spin, second rinse, etc) are easy to manage. The noise level is normal and is not an issue (some have mentioned that). However, it makes different, modern machine technology and gear noises than my previous machine that was 17 years old ;-)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Plenty of Room for my big loads
I bought this two months ago because the old washer was leaving brown spots on my clothes. This unit, and the matching dryer is the cost-effective solution my husband found. It addresses my troubles and he is happy with a new set of machines that won't require much attention/service for many years to come. This is the best good-value machine we could hope to have.

Great washing machine
from Loganville GA
Purchased this machine because it has an agitator. I think it is the best washing machine I have ever owned. It has great features and the clothes come out fresh and clean. Has a super large capacity.
Multiple features a plus

Multiple features to wash makes it convenient for my washing requirements. I love the wide inside drum which helps when loading and unloading. Very happy!!

nICE WASHER...DOES A GREAT JOB FOR MY NEEDS.
from Oneonta, NY, United States
Has more options on it than I will ever use, but still a great choice. It is quiet and does a load in about 30 min. Wish the lid didn't lock all the time, but I understand the safety concern behind it.
I bought this washer in Nov. 2016. The main problem I have with it is when I think it should be through with the entire cycle, I open lid only to find it has only gone thru the wash cycle, not spun or rinsed. I cannot start the cycle at rinse, so I have to go to the fast wash in order to get just a rinse and stand and watch to make sure it spins. This does not happen with each wash.
The machine was the one we selected because my sister-in law has one with no spinner in the tube. Ours has the spinner and it wash better and we dont have to worry about getting all the cloths in the center of the tube without the spinner.
