Ratings and Q&A

GTWS8650DWS is rated 4.1923 out of 5 by 104.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great, otherwise it is an average appliance This appliance came with my new home. It does not handle loads with large items (bedding) very well. You end up with a strange smooth-topped lump in the bottom of the basket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointing Ironically, a GE repair rep is at my home right now trying to fix a washer I installed new six months ago. From the first use, laundry came out dirtier than it went in. Pale items have dark spots and smears, and dark items have white and grey spots and smears. Rewashing (sometimes multiple times) removes most of the dirt but not always. The problem was diagnosed previously as a bad detergent dispenser and out-of-date software. I am not sure these will fix the problem. The rep is looking further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from never had cleaner laundry! My old kennel washer died. I told the appliance guy to order me the toughest, biggest washer they had. Don't care about brand, just big and and tough. And because I like to watch stuff being washer maybe a glass lid? lol I have to say I was a bit leary of all the techie stuff. But ONE wash convinced me. I LOVE this machine. Our laundry is dirty, lots of mud, dirt and hair. And a LOT of it. I still don't know how that machine use so little water. That first load I just knew it was going to be sent back. Because like I said my stuff is dirty!> But when I opened the lids the CLEAN ordor just greeted me telling me I was wrong. And this load had sat for over a WEEK until the washer had arrived. Saving us a ton in water bills! Wash is just clean. Does BIG loads. Comforters. Blankets. Big load full of hairy towels. ALL come out clean! Hope to have a LONG life with this machine but after two months I could not be happier!
