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.

Been using this washer for 2 months now, so happy I got this washer, love that I can actually wash blankets and have there be enough water in it to get it wet. I hate the newer he washers that barely fill up. The deep fill button is the best
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this washer because I had a HE top loader and I hated it. This one had a good old fashioned agitator and I love how clean my clothes are now using it. I'll never ever go back to a machine without an agitator. This machine is great!
Easy to use

I bought this Washer one week ago and fitted it very easy. The operation of the washer is easy to understand. The washer is not noisy and washes clothing to a very good standard. Does what it says on the tin. Great buy
