Ratings and Q&A

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved it until it died in only 3 years I thought this was a great machine until it started leaking. I called a technician out and the bearings are shot. We are a 2 person household, don’t wash massive loads, so why on earth is a $1K machine already shot. I will NEVER buy another GE product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from User Friendly! I'm so happy that I bought this right height front-loading model. It looks great in my laundry room and is taller so you don't have to purchase the stand. I appreciate all of the washing options available for all types of laundry and the machine is fun to operate. Yes, I said fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great I like all the features and the final spin practically drys the clothes. It saves allot of drying time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Purchase It sounds like we are one of many consumers that are having the same issue with this washer. Ours is only two years old and the drum and/or bearings went out on it. The machine started to sound like a jet engine. The cost to fix the machine is more than a new one costs. We were also told that this was a fluke by the retailer that we bought it from but clearly we aren't the only ones experiencing this problem. Don't buy this washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial customer satisfaction high With two days of use my initial customer satisfaction is high. The machine is stable, quiet, easy to use and understand, and appears to so its job well. It plays a happy tune when the cycle is complete rather than an irritating buzzer...nice!
