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.

Piece of junk!

Comments about GE 4.2 Cu. Ft. White Top Loading Washer:
This is the worst washing machine I have ever purchased, and I bought my first washing machine in 1970. This washing machine vibrates so bad during the spin cycle, that we can't keep the machine stationary. It has been checked four times to see if it is level, and all four times is was level. This washing machine vibrates so much, that it most likely it will not last a year. At this point, I am ready to give this one away and but a new one, but not a GE!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Cannot wash whites at all, even with best-rated detergent.
Great features and ease of use
from Montgomery County, PA, United States
I bought this a week ago and it is twice as fast as my old washer. It is quieter with more features that are all easy for me to use. It has a larger capacity and it has more accurate water level features.

We looked for a washer with a agitator and I swear the clothes are cleaner with this than a front loader.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Brand new and had 4 service calls - buyer beware
Bought machine November 2016 (brand new). This is March 2017 and we have had 4 service calls to fix. The trouble started with the machine going into the agitation cycle when there was nothing in it, plugged in and the lid was up. This happened more than once. Also, there were 2 software updates in which case the washer would do one load properly and then malfunction again. One of the service calls involved replacing a motherboard. And again, the machine did one load properly and would malfunction again. The 4th service call involved an electrician and he seemed to know what needed to be done. I would not recommend this model to anyone. They don't make appliances the way they use to.

Love this washer. It gives me plenty of options and isn't as noisy as the previous one I had. I can actually get clean clothes because I have water level options that most washers don't come with anymore. I'm very pleased with my purchase. AAAAA+
Very time efficient and excellent cleaning
from Jacksonville, FL, United States
Purchased this washer about 2 weeks ago and I love it. It was very different from my last washer so it took a little getting used to but the benefits are well worth it. My clothes are much cleaner and they spin a lot dryer so it also cuts drying time.
Plenty of options
It's been two months and it works like a champ. Just have to make sure you insert clothing even
