GTWN5550DWW is rated 2.8395 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage I put up with this washer for 18 months until it destructed for good. The "load balance" never worked and I spent more time opening the lid, shifting laundry around and restarting the wash just to get it to stop banging and jumping around. Was initially only an issue with large loads or a sheet that would bunch up in one spot, now I cannot even "hand wash" cycle 5 pieces of clothing. This washer is on my second floor and I fear it will jump downstairs - or thru the exterior wall as much as it moves and bangs during a wash. Replacing with a new brand today!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total JUNK!!!!! We got this machine a few months ago and it is a piece of garbage! it does NOT fill up with water! How do you get clothes clean with not enough water ???!!! It only has a tiny agitator so it doesn't get the clothes clean! The clothes just sit in a little bit of water and barely move around.They come out all dirty with fuzz clumped all over them. I do NOT understand this for the life of me. Supposed to save on water and energy but it doesn't do what it was made to do!!!! We went out and got a used washer that works the way it is supposed to and used to do. Until we can actually find a new washer that actually works correct!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a disappointment!! We have had our washer for two years and have had service out twice with no satisfaction. It does NOT do a thorough job of cleaning. In fact, it has put stains ON clothes. And the lack of a functional agitator means that it is constantly getting off balance with clothes/sheets/blankets balling up on one side, and taking noisy "walks" as it bounces across the floor. Too bad none of the reviews I read back then mentioned this HUGE issue. A complete waste of our money!!! Don't repeat our mistake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! The week before Christmas, my 9 year old GE washer (that I absolutly LOVED!) finally bit the dust. The lady at our local store recommened this machine and one from another brand. I went with the GE because I loved our old one. I love the he, the 20 wash cycles are nice to have, and there is a ton of room for clothes. It is quiet-ish, but we keep it in the basement. So far I love it!
