Ratings and Q&A

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Washer Out of the front load washers I’ve had, this one is my favorite. I was concerned that it would be complicated to use with all the cycle options, but it is by far very easy yo use. Also, I love the fact that it is big enough to handle king size bed mattress covers! Now I don’t have to go to the laundry mat. Another great thing about the washer is that it does not wrinkle the clothes. My previous washer would wrinkle clothes really bad even on a medium spin cycle. This washer does great on spin cycle even on max.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK- Like the options for different loads During the spin cycle it sounds like a threshing machine knocking and shaking. Have had it checked by GE service and was told it is normal. The machine needs to get up to 80rpms before it balances out. Hard to believe as this is not the first GE washer I have had and never have I had this problem. Very disconcerting since I have only had it 3 months. It has done this from the get go. Would not get it again. I do like the options and the time saver

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thoroughly disappointed! Bought this GE front load washer little over 1 year ago. Soap & softener dispensers retained water after wash cycle. After several failed attempts to fix it was replaced and same trouble with new one! I give up, but done with GE.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible machine I’ve been using this machine (new 3/2017). Just 2 people in household so minimal laundry use. Past 3 months liquid laundry soap won’t dispense & spin cycle sounds like machine will break loose and fly away it’s so loud-noisy! Repair man came out today and said bearings and ? Strutts are shot and some other problems. will take 2-3 weeks to get new parts in and he said will take at least 3hrs labor when they come back. I spent a over $10,000 for new ge appliances and have already needed to have my very expensive refrigerator replaced too.
