Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use - Love it I have had the washer and dryer set and am in love with how they look in the sleek grey, efficiency and quietness! The best investment for 2017.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Washer The RightHeight design makes so much sense. My old front load pair used to be on pedestals and I could never stand bottles of detergent and fabric softener upright in them, so I was constantly dealing with leaks. I could never justify $250 per pedestal again. This model was attractive because of other features as well. The capacity is huge, I can finally wash a thick queen comforter at home! The stain removal guide looks like a gimmick, but it's not. I had a couple of blood stained items, but thanks to Persil and the stain guide set to blood, there wasn't a trace of the stain left. The steam feature is something that I've never used on a washer before, but I've used it on almost every load because it actually works as advertised. For example, I washed a MyPillow which had yellowed over the years. I thought it was just age, but when I put it in on a steam cycle with regular detergent, I was shocked how white it was. The steam adds a lot of time to the cycle, but it's worth it for tough stains and odors. Speaking of time, the time saver feature is fantastic, not just for a single load in 37min, but I've been using it with a number of different cycles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Washer Nice and Quiet Our new GE washer replaces an old dilapidated terribly noisy washer. Nice to have a quiet washer on our first floor that we can even leave the laundry room door open when it's running.
