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.

Good but LOUD

Comments about GE 4.2 Cu. Ft. White Top Loading Washer:
The washer is a true work horse, and no smelly mold like my old front load. The only problem I have is the washer is extremely loud when in use.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

HE and Regular wash!
from Eleva, WI, United States
I love the fact that this washing machine has a HE setting for most of our clothes but I still have the deep fill option for my dirty work clothes.
Broke down in less than a month!
from Milwaukee, WI
I bought this model in Jan 2017 and less than 1 month later it broke down. Spin cycle does not get clothes dry the first time and the machine does not always work...
Great size and really nice controls

Very nice washer love the water size you can pick just like the old good ones
Hurrah. One with an agitator
By Fran in Texas

So far, so good. Only had it a day but have already done 5 loads of laundry. Seems to get the clothes cleaner than the old GE. A little noisier than the six year old one. Nice to have knobs to set it rather than computer heat sensitive buttons. We might be a little old fashioned, but we think that this gives us more control. Also, tried a machine without the central agitator tower; sent it back after one wash as it hardly moved the clothes around at all.
Still spritzes water out of top to knobs on top. Must wipe down continually. Can't they fix manufacturing process to close top cover so water does not spritz onto knobs on top...
Many features and easy to use.

Need to use more one day to determine before recommending product.

I love this washer!! I origionally bought a front loader and it was horrible!! I cant stand front loaders after having used them. I then looked at a bunch of different washers that just wouldnt get the job done. I needed something big and something with an agitator. People get too caught up in the look of a washer and dryer and they forget that they are CLEANING CLOTHES! It is not in your living room, so buy efficiently, not for looks! This is the best washer!! LOVE IT!! And as far as brand, you can not get better than GE. Every appliance in my house is GE and i have NEVER had any issues in 15 years! The washer that i had to replace (before the front loader) was GE as well. I LOVED it. However, my family is much bigger now and I needed a bigger drum. I can now do twice the clothes in one load.
Love all the features

Enjoying my new washer. My clothes are clean and fresh.
