Does the washer make a funny noise like it is struggling to agitate?

Asked by: Anonymous
Please make SURE you look to the right hand side of your new washer, and pull out the Steel Bar the manufacturer put in for shipping purposes. This will ruin your washer if it is cycling and this bar is still installed.

Is the water supposed to fill over the clothes?

Asked by: Anonymous
Depends what you are washing, I usually keep my washer set on Super. Most clothes, towels and sheets are covered with water, once they get wet. I do not overfill it, my rule is, a reg size rectangular basket, 23L x 18W x 10H, I add clothes to fill to the top of the basket loosely, then add to the Washer. These dry clothes will fill this washer about half way or a little more, dry. You can not fill it to the very top dry. If you open the washer lid in about 5 minutes into the cycle, you can see the soaked clothes fully submerged.

3.6 DOE cu. ft. Top Load Washer in White is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 103.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from LEAVES CLOTHES DIRTY I seem to have this issue with this washing machine. I wash my clothing and it comes out dirtier than when I put them in. To the point I have to throw them in the trash. This is a waste of money. How can one buy a machine to clean clothing and it becomes very dirty. My clothes look like I was working on a car for hours and I do not work on cars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst washer ever Worst washing machine ever. Does not clean. Darks always have filmy residue. Even using second rinse does not clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with my new washer! My new washer was delivered less than 24 hours ago and I have already washed 10 loads of wash. I was so surprised by how much clothing I could fit in this washer!! I have been satisfied with all 10 loads I have done. I did NOT have any clothes that came out of the washer still dry, they were completely rinsed and I only used one rinse cycle. I had one load that was unbalanced during the wash cycle and some of it was twisted when I removed it from the washer. I will chalk that up to my error not the washers. The washer does make a strange noise when it is washing but it is nothing compared to my very OLD washer. Need to go find something else to wash.................

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great washer I was also skeptical about this product. However it does work very well. I have put about 10 loads through it and it gets my clothes clean. Seem to work well on large loads as well.. I washed a queen size bed sheets and heavy blanket in one load and they came out smelling good. There was a murky smell but that went away after a couple of loads... Not sure why people are complaining about this washer... All HE washer use a different washing style to clean clothes compared to traditional washers. It is strange to watch at first but it does get your clothes clean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for the dirty man I just bought this washer a few hours ago. I have done three loads. First off, I am a mechanical engineer. I know how things should work. The first thing I did was disable the safety (i know, I know) so I could see how the clothes were being washed. I wasn't very impressed. The clothes do not turn over like they would with a good agitator. TThe ones on top stay on top. They just sit there with very little movement. I'm not dissapointed because the only use it will get is me, with business casual clothes and my daughter with her preppy clothes. We very rarely have real DIRTY clothes.. If I were still in the construction business I would NOT recommend this washer. It takes elbow grease to get something clean and this washer has neither elbow nor grease. Please don't buy this if you have busy kids that get dirty or you expect your work jeans to get clean. On the good side...I was impressed with the quality of this washer. It has plenty of options and is very quiet. I loaded it with a little common sense and as if it did have an agitator in the center and I didn't have any balance problems on the spin cycle. It definetly has a large capacity. More than I needed. I like the fact that it senses the load size but I am worried this will be the first thing to fail. I would recommend this to a business person but not the blue collar family. If you have dirty clothes get a washer with an agitator. This will never clean as well. The business person probably doesn't need one this big either. I hope this helps. .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy this product if you line dry clothes because it leaves an awful lint/soap residue. When I bought this machine there were only a few reviews. I thought since it was the GE "profile" that it was going be good. I guess the major beef I have with it so far is that it leaves a lint/soap residue on all my dark colored clothes. I have tried different detergent, and different cycle settings with no improvement. If I dry them, the dryer removes most of this. However, most of my black slacks and dark dress shirts I line dry and it is tough to remove. Also, my lint trap builds up much more rapidly than my old front loader. Can't help but think it needs more water to wash properly!!!! The noise is different but pleasant and there is an option to turn on a sound when the washer is done with the load.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk!!!! My clothes are never clean, the clothes that I have to line dry are so wrinkled and full of lint that I have to iron and use a lint roller on each piece. The fabric softener dispenser does not dispense the fabric softener until after the cycle is finished and then it runs all over the clothes on the bottom of the machine - which ends up staining them. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND OR BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also have the matching dryer and after owning these two for about six months I started to have the fabric softener problem and the dryer started to make a ton of noise.
