GTWS8650DWS is rated 4.1358 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than a front load I was very satisfied with the quality of this washer. It has the economy and wash of a front load washer and the drum design is fantastic. I can fit a comforter since it doesn't have the center post taking room. Steam feature is great and the wash quality is better than some of the more aggressive washers I had in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE My New Washer This is a fantastic washer that really does the job. It is quiet, holds plenty of laundry and really gets the clothes clean. I love the sleek look, best washer we have ever had.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to handle I bought this washer about 7 weeks ago and so far so good! Easy to use even my 1st time. I love having the extra space. Hoping this one lasts a very long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge Capacity Bought this washer as we were tired of doing multiple loads (wash/dry). This machine as great settings for all types of clothes and the only one at Best Buy rated to wash bedcovers and bulky items. It's quiet with sound construction and looking forward to using it for years to come.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality My first washing machine was delivered on June 17, 2014. It had a major scratch on the front of the machine. The second washing machine washed was delivered on June 23. The water level is not sufficient unless I use the "bulky items" setting. But this limits the spin speed to "high" so the clothes do not get as dry. For the last month there has been standing water in the "pretreat/liquid bleach" compartment. The washing machine is supposed to talk to the dryer and send information about what dryer cycles to use. Unfortunately there are no instructions in the manual how to do this.
