Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to get used to I have had a number of clothing items torn up and shredded in this machine. I am glad it uses less water but find that my clothes do not come out that clean. I have to wash only on the delicate cycle

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Machine Ever !! I've never posted a review before, but just could not let this go. I've had this washer for 7 months. At first, I thought I would get used to the "new style". The longer I have it the more frustrated I am with it. Clothes come out horribly wrinkled. Soiled clothes don't come out clean. Cycles take way too long - on average a minimum of 1 hour. Spin cycles can go 15-20 minutes. To try to mitigate wrinkles, I try to remember to stop the machine's spin cycle early. It seems to help. But, who has time to "babysit" their washer? You can't turn off the Extra Spin Cycle if you use fabric softener. I use twice as much fabric softener and still have tons of wrinkles. I find myself ironing my knit tops! They used to come out soft and ready to wear. I can only wash 1 king size sheet at a time if I want it clean. Washer has a huge tub, but can only put in a 4-5 t-shirts to keep them within water levels. GE says you can load more into the tub, but my experience is clothes don't get clean. Doing laundry for my husband and myself has turned into an all day job. Lots of small loads all taking each 1 hour. I bought the washer because it fit in my space requirements. I should have bought a traditional agitator machine or a front load washer. I am seriously thinking of selling it and getting something else. Worst money I've ever spent. Bottom line... I use twice as much fabric softener, take 2-3 times longer to do laundry and end up having to do ironing that I never did before! Not good. Ditto

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Washer Ever I purchased this washer a little over a month ago, does not clean the clothes, leaves fabric softener stains on the clothing, and consistently makes a grinding noise. What a waste of money. Will never again purchase a GE product...totally useless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does it really clean clothes? Not enough water to cover the wash is dispensed, clothes get wet, however, I do not feel that the washing machine really cleans clothes.
