Does a great job on large loads. seems to go off balance with smaller loads but it will pause rather than keep bouncing when it goes off balance. Its very simple to use and i really like the my cycle feature that allows me to set temp spin speed and water level the way i want and the kids just have to choose the type of wash colors or towels

Went back old school after my front loader died after 6 years. It is nice to see the agitator working and know that my clothes are getting clean. Nice that it can be filled up with water to insure they are getting washed thru. Overall very very happy with my washer. Will never have a front loader again

Nothing but trouble since I bought it

3/11/2018

Ive had nothing but trouble since I bought this washing machine The agitator pulls the clothes to one side and yes I distribute the clothing evenly at the start of the wash. For every one load that completes without a code or issue I bet I have 5-6 loads that do not complete without needing to be restarted redistributed or drained and spun just to be done with the load. Ive tried contacting GE by phone but get sent to different departments until I end up getting disconnected. Currently the machine is stopping about 5 minutes into the cycle and the code END is scrolling. Very frustrating

Excellent washing machine

3/2/2018

This washing machine has a lot of great features. I find the window on the top is very useful for visualizing how things are going while the laundry is in the process of being washed. The ability to add extra water lengthen soak times perform warm water rinses perform additional rinses and select longer spin times all adds up to really being able to customize each individual load of laundry. On the other hand for the times when you dont want to put much thought into it you can simply just select the type of laundry on the control panel and let the machine do the thinking for you. This washing machine cleans clothes exceptionally well and the large sized basin allows for a lot of laundry to be cleaned in one load. Less work and more free time makes me happy

But not anymore - this beauty has the perfect settings and the time for a total wash cycle is great Our clothes come out clean and quick Our son loves it too when he comes home to visit

I purchased my new GE washer last December after having my previous GE washer for 15 years The biggest difference in the new washer versus the old one was the newer technology and expanded features. I suggest reading the manual in detail prior to use. The washer works great and cleans my clothes every time without issue. Best purchase since my last washer purchase of a GE appliance.

1/28/2018

Extremely disappointed Does not fill to the proper level to wash properly clothes stay dry on top. Have to manually add water. Does not spin fast enough to rinse out clothes. Clothes are still wet enough that a full cycle in the dryer does not dry them completely. This so called energy efficient washer is costing me more to do one load.

We have had this for 2 months now and could not be more pleased We had an old washer and were worried about the electronics on this one but after reading the manual its like we were old pros at it. It was super easy to learn to use and the wash we got out of it makes us wonder if our old washer even washed our clothes It uses way less water spins the water out so good we dont need to dry our clothes as long as we did before and the clear lid makes it kinda cool to watch sometimes I would Highly recommend this washer next time you need one and the dryer that goes with it is just as good

I absolutely love this washer. It looks beautiful. I love the fact that even though it is a top loader you can still look in it without opening it. The tub is very large. It has so many more choices for what type load you are doing. I also like the fact it determines how much water it need for your load selection. My clothes are noticeably cleaner. Im just really really happy with my choice.
