Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this washer! Great large washing machine. I love mine because I can wash my huge king size comforters and they fit! I am a sucker for stainless steel also. Nice washer for the little money you pay!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the extra water levels Needed new washer that would wring clothes better, this washer does the job, even has an extra cycle if needed. Just wanted something simple and reasonably priced, this fit the bill. Very pleased and satisfied with all the options, (even though I don't use them all). Especially like the multiple water temperatures and love the extra basket space. Have washed bedspreads, blankets and even a 4'x6' bathroom rug with no problems. Only had for a month, and very satisfied to date.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for dirty Work Clothes Did not realize this was an HE til I saw that on matching dryer, after it arrived, nothing on washer says it. Knew they wouldn't clean enough for husband's work clothes & turns out I'm right! Just great! Washing them all twice! Also no water level fills to more than 2/3 of the tub, top of most items out of water & barely being cleaned. Nearly all but small loads need to be filled to super level or have an extra bucket of water poured in from the sink, for it to come close to covering them, otherwise they barely move in agitation. Towels have come out still wet & needed a second spin. And that's all in the first week! May need service but can't get human on line to ask if all this is normal! It is very quiet, big whoopie.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Two of them broke. I got one shipped out, it leaked out of the bottom. A second was sent as a replacement, it won't spin all of a sudden in two weeks of having it. It was good when it worked, that was not a long time though. Sending it back and trying my luck with another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Job GE I love this washing machine. After 8 years of using another brand I finally find a washer I can open up the lid and see the water and clothes swishing around. I like how I can pick the load size or have the auto load do it for me. The super size load is awsome. I have used it for bedspreads and they come out so clean. The options are plentiful on this machine. I really like the power rinse. Great Job GE.
