Rated 5 out of 5 by from best washer I've had bought this early 2014 and it is the best washer I've ever had. I don't have to wash clothes every week so it doesn't get heavy usage, but like it better than any I've had.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just received to replace Model GFWR4800F1WW washer I received this GFW490RSKWW washer as a replacement for a GFWR4800F1WW model, which was delivered to me in April 2015, as I thankfully purchased an extended warranty. My original washer began to have major problems after just 16 months of normal use. In July 2016 the spin cycle would not stop so washer had to be manually stopped for most cycles. Then about a month later, during the spin cycle the drum started wobbling and at high speed the entire washer vibrated a lot making very loud noise and sounding like the drum might fly out of the machine. After multiple repair technicians tried to fix the problem the machine was finally deemed not worth fixing because it needed a new drum and other parts so my warranty company authorized a replacement. I am praying that this newer model of the same washer does not have the same problems and that the first one was just a "lemon". I am dissatisfied with the quality of what is considered a premium washer, sold at a high price.
