This product is a nightmare! I bought mine in 2009 at the end of the year and since then, I have hated it. I have had it repaired and I have had to fix problems myself. It doesn't drain all the way quite a bit. It produces a smelly moldy odor on the clothes. I have done the chlorine bleach cleaning and it doesn't help. I spent ovger $800. and I will Never buy another GE front loder again!! July 22, 2013
Poor quality. Always breaking down We bought this washer about 3 years ago with the matching dryer. Approximately every six months something has gone wrong with it that needed to be replaced. Until now they've been nuisance repairs (failed water connection, etc.). But now the main bearing in the tub has gone. It's only three years old and now has to have a $400 part replaced. This is the worst quality appliance we have ever owned. Will never purchase another GE product again. Not even a light bulb. June 12, 2013
Motor died after less than 15 loads. This washer works great, when functioning. It broke down after 6 months of use. March 3, 2013
Love it! The set does the job! It's easy to use and looks great doing it. March 1, 2013
Very happy with both the washer and dryer. Both washer and dryer perform well. Even though I have to do a little maintenance after washing like making sure I leave no standing water to avoid mold, I would still recommend buying a GE front loader. It is very effcient, my clothes are clean and tangle free when finished. It certainly is better than the washer it replaced which was a top loader. February 28, 2013
Goes off balance too easily I can not wash more than two towels OR two king size sheets without this machine going off balance. When it goes off balance, it adds minutes to the wash time - and will continue to add the minutes up to 15 times (which could mean up to an hour to the wash time.) WOULD NOT recommend this washer because of the above reason - when it does work properly, it does a nice job of cleaning my clothes. Does not need much soap - and when I add an extra cleaning agent, I can add extra rinse which is only 10 minutes long. I purchased this model based on Consumer Reports magazine - I won't EVER use them again. October 7, 2012
features are good when washing towels it takes forever the washer go off balance and resets more minutes. the washer is set up the way it is suppose to be. It is a poor design, I guess thats way they don't make it any more. September 18, 2012
poor spin cycle Does not remove water thoroughly during the spin cycle. Would not buy GE again. September 15, 2012
