GE washer model GTWN495OLOWS This machine stinks-literally! I hate this machine!!!!!!!! My clothes never smell clean! Also resent the fact that I have to use a special cleaner to care for it. It might last long enough to make one load smell a little better but that is all!!! I have bought several GE appliances over the years but after this fiasco I probably won't buy anymore!!! June 1, 2013
Thank goodness they no longer make it. wish I could get a refund Agree with several others. Lint is left on all dark clothes. Wrinkles are terrible. Tried using smaller loads still doesn't help. I use HE detergent, but still doesn't help. Not sure clothes are at all clean. Any refund would be appreciated. Purchased in Nov of 2011 but didn't use until 12 of 2012 because of new construction. Being using now for 3 months and HATE it. April 11, 2013
I hate this washer. I agree with the reviews about my clothes coming out of the washer covered with lint residue. I like to hang my clothes out to dry. I cannot do that with this washer. I have to rinse twice if not more and then scrub the lint lines that are trapped in the folds of the clothes before hoping that the dryer will remove the remaining lint. I can't imagine the clothes are clean. I have had it for about a year and i am getting rid of it tomorrow. I am a busy person and I do not need the aggravation this washer has caused me. March 10, 2013
No wonder they discontinued this product. I have been married 40 years and this is the worse washer I have ever used. I have owned it for 13 months and the thought of starting another year with this washer makes me sick. The energy saver feature is such a joke when you have to rinse all dark clothes at least twice. I"ve changed detergent, used no detergent, tried everything. Do not buy this machine unless you have more time than money. They should at least give us some trade in value for this mistake. January 13, 2013
Worse washing machine ever This is the worse washing machine I ever owned. It doesn't get the clothes clean; wrinkles them to the point where drying them doesn't get the wrinkles out no matter how little clothes are in the cycle. I have to rewash many items even though they aren't that dirty. I DO NOT recommend this machine. They were having a promotion when I bought the matching washer and dryer and the few dollars I saved were not worth it. I am so disappointed and wish I could replace it. Will not buy this brand of appliances again. January 13, 2013
Worst washer ever bought! Dark clothes have lint and residue that often doesn't come out with two additional washes. Makes me wonder what is left behind that cannot be seen on whites. Have used it for 2 years and fed up. GE should issue refunds for this awful product. Certainly not energy efficient. January 9, 2013
Does NOT clean the clothes I have had this washing machine for 9 months and have NOT been satisfied with its ability to clean clothes at all!! This is by far one of the worst washing machines. It does not even begin to get stains out of our clothes...I have 2 boys involved in all sports and my husband works in industry, so I have alot of laundry and no time to wash the same load 2 or 3 times to attempt at getting them clean! I was so disappointed at how this machine performs. November 20, 2012
Quiet, efficient, great features. Very quiet and efficient machine. Uses just enough water to get clothes clean. Don't use too much fabric softener, it will flake out of your clothes when you wear them. October 18, 2012
