Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total disaster! The verb "wash" suggests water: wash your hands, clothes, car, etc., with water. On the premise of "saving water", this washer washes without water. Out of 8 washing cycles only during the "Delicates" cycle some water can be seen at the bottom of the bin. Not a drop of water is seen during other 7 cycles, however, somehow at the end of any of these cycles the laundry comes out wet. You have no control over this washer. The machine controls you. Even during the "Delicates" cycle the machine does not allow you to use hot water, only warm. So, I use only the "Delicates" cycle to see at least some water. What a waste of money! My kitchen is GE equipped. Because for many years I've been using excellent GE products, a month ago I decided to replace the old washer also with a GE machine. What a disappointment! I'm stuck with this useless piece of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far I love it! Very pleased with the purchase of this front-load washer to date. I've had it installed nearly 2 months and zero issues with it. I was a skeptic of front-load washers due to all the negative reviews [thought I needed a Speed Queen top-loader machine with an agitator]. Happy to say that I am glad I saved some $$$ and bought this washer instead. If you follow the instructions and use the appropriate HE detergent, wipe down the door gasket after each use, and leave the washer door cracked after each use, you won't have any smell issues either! This machine does a great job cleaning clothes, they are clean and smell fresh. The washer is very efficient, and I couldn't be happier. Each month I follow the instructions to run the "Basket Clean" cycle and also check & clean the pump filter for any debris. It's simple to operate and I love the fact that it's big enough to wash heavily soiled, large loads and bedding / comforters.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from dispensers never empty fully SMELLS not many cycle options, dispensers never empty fully (I follow the guidelines on types to use and amount to use in the machine). This is especially worrisome for the bleach if the following load(s) can't have bleach. IT SMELLS. I have followed every single online advice to clean and it still SMELLS. Sometimes laundry comes out smelling that had no smell at all when it went in. at least once to twice a week I do a white vinegar and baking soda wash, and another with bleach and hot water. I have wiped out the seals, and other areas - still smells.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worked perfectly- only for 3 months This product was great for the first 3 months we had it, and then began to occasionally stop mid-cycle. I thought maybe it was off balance with towels, etc and tried everything i could think of. By month 4 it wouldn't drain or spin at all. After having top-loading washers that lasted over a decade, this was a huge disappointment and i regret not buying a simpler appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, I can use my new washer. I belong to American Shield Home Warranty who replaced my old washer with the new one, a GE. It was defective in that the shocks were non-functioning. Called the warranty service and new parts were ordered and installed. The whole time it took was about two months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use, pleased so far I have only had this washer a week but I am happy with it so far. It is very quiet and easy to use.

Asked by: Millie
Hi Millie, Thank you for your question. Just make sure the comforter is safe to machine wash and that it actually fits in the tub. Thanks for checking. Lisa from GE Appliances.
