Ratings and Q&A

GTWN5550DWW is rated 3.0222 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I wasn't sure about this new washer - weighing the clothes to fill - but no problem with the clothes being clean. So quiet the first time I used it I had to go in several times to make sure it was working. I have recommended the washer to my family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased w/my new GE top load washer It has performed as advertised and gets my clothes and dog beds clean. I would like to be able to adjust the water levels, since I don't feel like enough water is used w/the new energy efficient washers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product has limited capacity This is a beautiful appearing washer. It would be ideal as a tiny load machine. But trying to wash a few towels and a sheet is more than the washer can handle. The water line is so low that the towels lump together and for spinning purposes one must pull some of the laundry out and rearrange it, or have two separate batches for rinsing and spinning. I agree that clothing wraps around each other, and you have a tangle to deal with. The deal is to realize that you have to chose the settings to fool the washer into using the maximum amount of water. It was not a good choice and I feel sorry for someone who would try to wash a sleeping bag or quilt in this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent replacement for older model GE Profile Washer We had an older model GE Profile washer that we loved, but it needed a new electronic control panel. The GE service man told us the repairs would be high and we would have to wait over a month for the parts. Ugh!!! He also gave us a private number to call GE Customer Satisfaction to try to expedite the spare part. The part couldn't be expedited, but they could ship us a new GE washer at a deep cost, I think. It could also be delivered free immediately. WOW, the new washer, a GTWN5550DWW, cost about the same as the spare part on backorder. We ordered it and received it in a couple of days. The new washer is every bit as good as the previous GE Profile which they carried off. It has virtually every cycle for any clothes you wash, it's quieter than the GE Profile, it calculates the amount of water needed to wash the load you put in, the washing performance is excellent without adding any wear on the garments, it has an amazing way of balancing your load so you never have to stop the washer and re-position the garments. Some of the noises you hear are from the washer balancing the load when you start the load, however, they are no louder than the noise of the washer while it's filling. In short, we couldn't be more satisfied with this washer or GE's service.
