Very satisfied! The washer has met my expectations! I chose this brand because my Mom is a GE fan and I have not been disappointed. The washer has a plethora of features for any fabric. The quietness is also a plus. Great model GE! July 15, 2013
Junk It's no wonder this model was discontinued. What a piece of junk. Within a month of purchase the spin cycle stopped working. Even after three service calls and a new motor it stopped spinning again. Local dealer was great to work with and took it back. Will never buy another GE product again. July 3, 2013
WATER Performance is poor do to the water level! It would be a excellent washer if it used more water. Do not buy this if you have a lot of Laundry to do.You can thank our government with it's stupid mandates on our USA companies. June 10, 2013
Great quality at a reasonable I did 8 loads of wash as soon as my washer was hooked up. It was very quiet and the clothes came out very clean. I like the choices given for washing, and especially the automatic fill option. definitely recommend this washer. April 4, 2013
Overall,,,this is a very good machine. This model was picked from the product catalog in April 2012. I had to wait 5 weeks because GE does a late model change over. Definitely some new features from the 20 yr old Amana that it replaced. 6 wks into ownership the agitator flew off its mount, banging around, and cracked the top portion of the agitator. (that section is easily replaced) Called GE repair and gave a good description of the problem. The Tech arrived and said the motors on the new models were over-torqued and would need a new motor. I was disappointed that he didn't have a motor with him since I'd given a good description to Customer Service. This of course delayed the repairs. Motor was direct shipped to my house. Since the repairs everything is good. ~ Can't get used to the auto-fill feature so I don't use it.... I agree with some of the other reviews regarding not being able to get enough water for really big loads such as comforters, and no way to override they system. ~ Overall this is a very good machine for today's cost of Washers and I wasn't going to pay the ridiculous price of a front loader. One last thing. I am VERY GLAD that this machine is made in the revitalized plant in KY. March 30, 2013
Good solid washer for the price. This washer has all of the functions a normal family of three needs in a washer. The Precise Load water feature will save us money on our water bill. We expect many years of service from this machine. March 29, 2013
Good machine Only complaint, at this moment, is that the supplied drain hose is too short. Since the hose has a special connection it is not one you can pick up at a local Home Depot or Lowes. I needed to change the hose length by adding on a piece in order to reach my drain. My suggestion to GE would be to manufacture a hose with a minimum length of 72 to 84" not 57" as supplied. March 28, 2013
Very happy with this product This is a very deep washer and handles loads well. and its really quiet! March 27, 2013
