Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Button1003 Great flexibility to choose wash preferences
I was looking for a washer that could be run in High Efficiency mode (for normal clothes) but with the flexibility to alter certain functions should the need arise. For example, we use cloth diapers and to get a good wash you need a washer which allows lots of water and extra rinses - not something that the average HE washer will allow.
This washer has preset programmes but you can alter EVERY SINGLE ONE. Want the water hotter? Just turn the temperature dial. Want more water? Up the load size. Extra rinse? No problem. Each adjustment also shows you how you affecting the efficiency of the washer. All this is great for cloth diapers, and I can still use the HE / precise fill modes for normal loads.
This is one happy cloth-diapering mama.
Oh, and it's not immediately apparent, but this model DOES have an agitator.

Folks that research products prior to purchase will already know of the numerous complaints they have read about in regards to the HE machines without the agitators, that do NOT allow the user to select various water levels resulting in clothes not being fully submerged during the wash cycle. Also the many complaints of lengthy cycle times. This unit eliminates those problems and provides a multitude of wash variables at your fingertips. Might not be the largest of tubs and is a tad expensive but what you get is the best of the old & new technology combined. Perfect size for a family of 4 and fits the King size comforters & speads just fine.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pottytrainingtwins REPLACED 3 times in 1 year!
The worst appliance experience in my life!!! I will never buy another GE product in my life (and my dad works there!) Within 1 year, we have had to take more than 2 weeks off of work to meet the repairmen, who will not come on our day off (Fridays) They have had to repair each 2-3 times before they will replace it. We are now working on our THIRD replacement machine. They are finally allowing me to get a different model. DO NOT BUY this machine!!!

Had this machine for two years four months. Purchased a warranty, From day one We noticed the clothes where not getting clean. Discovered It's an High Efficiency washer even though It is not advertises as one. One year in to using It machine begins making terrible clunking and banging sounds like It's off balanced It Is not. Discovered the warranty was not worth the paper It was printed on. They would not at first acknowledge I had a warranty only after showing them the receipt and an argument did i get an excuse for why they would not repair or replace it. Had it repaired 200 bucks and a year later. it now makes a scrapping noise and turns off from time to time or does nothing when turned on. It started leaking water and as the tub floats in water there Is supposed to be very little noise It sounded like a train going past our home.The lid switch failed and the machine would not turn on. The final straw was three weeks ago While It was going through It's violent tantrum It bound up and started screeching loudly. The machine Is junk low water my rear It never got the clothes clean In some cases never got the clothes wet terrible experience sold to me by liars 90% of the reviews here are paid for

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NYC Similar model broke after 2 years
I bought a similar unit GHWN5250D0WS two years ago to replace my 5 year old rusted Maytag. My GE washer made a loud noise during the spin cycle. I called a local parts store and they told me it's a throw-away model. They don't repair GE's since they redesigned the basket drive. I went online to find out that it might be the T tub bearing but followed my repairman's suggestion of buying the $150 basket drive. Found one cheaper at Amazon. The basket drive comes with a tub seal which I think is the root cause of the problem. Once the tub leaks at the seal, the water flows down directly to the drive. Smart design. I installed the parts following directions online and it leaked at the seal. Removed and added sealant to the tub seal to stop the leak. I hope the seal and the drive last a few more years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LM Washer Dryer AWESOME PRODUCTS
I absolutely love the set. It has all the features I was looking for. I had another set that was a big name brand, but hated the fact it did not have an agitator or that I could select the water level. My clothes would not come clean no matter what I tried. THANKS GE FOR THESE PRODUCTS

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Single guy Excellent variety of features!
I have had this washer about two months. I am quite satisfied with the features, such as the size of the wash load, type of clothes to wash, setting the time to wash and to rinse. This washer does an excellent job both in getting the clothes clean and getting them dry and ready for the dryer.
