Ratings and Q&A

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Washer Problem Drum bearing broken after only 16 - 18 months. Detergent does not dispense properly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems early on Bought the set in May. Started having issues with the unit shutting down and the power light would flash on and off constantly. None of the controls would work and the door stayed locked. The only way to stop this was to unplug for 30 seconds and plug back in. Called for service and the selling dealer was quick to respond. Of course, parts had to be ordered. While waiting for parts to arrive the problem got worse and the power light would start flashing even when the washer was not in use. We keep the unit unplugged now. Part is in and will be installed next week. Hopefully it will cure the problem. I'm sorry I didn't buy the old school top loading non electronic washer that I never had a problem with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer High quality washer. Cleans dirt and dog hair well. Clothes are coming out much nicer than our old washer. Many great washing cycles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some issues Purchase about 60 days ago. Starting making noises like a 'tick tick' and the drum was vibrating a lot. Service technician found a bad shock absorber. The part is on order. Other than that the washer performs pretty good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes life easier We bought a top load washer 2 years ago and had problems with it every week. Got this GE front load washer and it has made life so much better. You set it and it does everything. No going out of balance, no timing out on spin cycle. And it has a built-in stand. We are very pleased.
