WBVH6240FWW is rated 2.0588 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 8 1/2 YEARS and STILL GOING Got the washer and dryer pair 8 1/2 year ago and have not had one service call placed on neither one. We always leave the door open along with the dispenser after washing to let unit air out for a couple of days. Make sure to remove panel directly under washer door and clean drain collector about every 3 months. You will find change, fishing lures, nail, etc. that you have washed. On the dryer, we shop vac out lint every three month from those down deep hard to reach places and change the dryer exhaust hose going to the wall once a year. That's it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long-lasting! Has lasted 5 years so far with standard maintenance. Paid around $3,450 for the washer and dryer set, and I have definitely gotten my money's worth.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Biggest waste of money!! This washing machine has been the biggest disappointment since about a year after purchase. It does not spin or wring clothes properly, so I cannot wash full loads or I end up spending 4x as long to spin them dry enough so they dont take 6 hrs to dry. the seal split and had to be replaced, I am constantly having to run washing machine cleaner because it does not drain water properly and there is a smell in it. I will never buy a GE washer again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice with minor issues Either I've been lucky or only the people with problems wrote reviews, but I've been very happy with this washer. Occasionally I see some suds when I open the door after it's done (mostly with a large load of jeans), and I had a problem with the detergent drawer coming out during washing (fixed with a piece of tape) otherwise it's been a good washer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Steel drum broke away from housing Steel drum broke away from housing, sending water flooding down under the machine.
