Great savings on electricity This is the 1st energy efficient washer I have bought and I love the savings on the electric bill. It takes getting used to and you can't over load these washers. Unfortunately after 1 1/2 years it is developing a clunky clicking sound that I know does not bode well. July 31, 2013
Worst American made product I bought this washer 6 months ago,floor model at Sears. Worst ever! Started acting erratic,not completing cycle,then filling and nothing else,anyway two technicians later,and a good bit of money,now,he says he thinks its the motor!! He spent an hour trying to "reset" the motor......just a joke Do not purchase. May 22, 2013
This product was horrible The washer experienced broken barrings which cut the tub and broke the seal...after having it serviced, the washer was still not fixed. It is loud and annoying, never spins clothes out good and is to water efficient because it does not use enough water to clean the clothes! Poor choice for a washer! I am very disappointed! May 9, 2013
problems within first year This machine was serviced by a qualified technician within the first year of purchase. Does not clean clothes, leaves grease on clothes, clothes smell. There isn't enough water to cover the clothes. I was told DO NOT wash quilted spreads in this machine. I have had to keep using the machine due to funds. I am finally able to purchase another machine, but due to the problems with this machine I am scare to try another of this type of machine. March 28, 2013
This producct works very well. We have been happy with the way it spins out the clothes. It does not take much dying time to complete the drying cycle. March 11, 2013
This washer does not clean clothes effectively. I wish that I had read reviews of this washer before purchasing. Our clothes and towels never look or smell clean. Now the washer will not drain or spin, and it only fills once in a while. After two service visits and new parts, the machine still does not start it's spin cycle. We chose a "high efficiency" machine to conserve on water usage. If I had known how truly inefficient this washer was at cleaning, we would have stuck with a traditional fill and agitation system. We've trusted GE for many, many years, but we are deeply disappointed with this product. January 15, 2013
humming Basic, does the job, the humming sound is bit annoying other than that happy with my clean clothes. October 27, 2012
This washer does not sufficiently clean laundry. It is not surprise that this washer is no longer manufactured. It is a failure at cleaning soiled laundry. Only items needing a gentle or hand wash that are small get clean. One set of sheets is pushing its limit. It will not pull even a full sized mattress pad completely into the "infusor." Even the GE serviceman told me it was not a machine for a family's laundry needs. I should have returned it within 30 days. GE should replace every one sold as they are useless. I am not saving water, since I have to re-wash many laundry items. I will donate or recycle mine soon. I can't sell a machine to anyone that doesn't clean. October 19, 2012
