I have not found pooling of water or soap suds in the bottom of the tub ... but I do find that the clothes do not spin sufficiently dry with just the regular cycle. I turn the dial to the end to give the clothes and extra spin (only takes about 5 minutes). That's kind of annoying, but an extra spin costs less than extra drying time with the dryer. Don't juse Tide, so don't know about its sudsing action. Read More

I would encourage you to try using a little less detergent. Even with detergent designed for cold water, cold water still does not mix as well as warm water does leaving suds or a thicker solution. If you still have pooling of soap, it obviously did not have enough water to fully dissolve and dispense through the machine. That just should not be after a completed rinse and spin cycle on this machine. You Read More

That just should not be after a completed rinse and spin cycle on this machine. You can play with the amount of water you're using (i.e. load size) vs. the amount of detergent mixture to balance this out. Another thing I would try is using the power rinse (irregardless of if you're using fabric softener or not). The extra rinse from this feature provides more thorough cleansing. Read Less

Hello John,
This is Donna with GE and I am sorry to hear you are experiencing this issue with your GE washer
model # GTWN2800DWW.
I would definately suggest using the Power rinse. This system combines neutral draining, spray rinses and deep fill rinse with agitation to reduce the possibility of redepositing soil and detergent on clean clothes and achieve a thoroughly clean rinse.
The secret to Power Rinse in the neutral drain process:
"Cleaning" agents in detergents capture and suspend soil at the water's surface. Since the "neutral drain" process does not involve any spinning action, the clothes stay mainly at the bottom of the tub while dirty water drains out the holes in the side of the tub and away from the clothes dl
Also, make sure drain hose is not "kinked" or trying to drain more than 8 ft. higher than the floor. The maximum height a GE full size washer will pump is 8 feet, as measured from the floor of the laundry area.
If the porblem continues, please see the link below for scheduling service.

Answer: 
It is standard practice for a washer to NOT come with fill hoses. They are customer supplied. It is highly recommended that you purchase braided fill hoses that are more durable than rubber hoses. Water is constantly under pressure at the two hose-washer connections and if a hose fails, you have a flood. Spend the extra few dollars on braided hoses.

Hello Vanessa,
Thank you for your question on the GE 3.9 DOE cu. ft. Stainless Steel Capacity Washer Model # GTWN2800DWW.
Yes, it can easily accommodate a king-size comforter but it will depnd on the type of fabric and the washing instructions of the comforter. You would certainly want to select the Super water level setting.
GE has avoided the use of pounds as a rating system for washer capacity because a washer is not limited in practical terms by the weight of clothes it can wash. It is limited by the volume of clothes that can be put in the machine. Example: one down comforter might fill up the entire machine but weigh very little, while blue jeans are heavier but a smaller load.
Just stuffing a big load into the washer is only part of the story. After you get the clothes in there, they have to wash clean. GE prefers not to make exaggerated claims on pounds when we know that huge, stuffed loads won't wash well.
Should you have any additional questions, please let us know.

The wash cycle CAN pause to soak clothing. If you restart the wash cycle to the beginning, I'm not sure if the water will drain or not as I've never tried this. However, if you need to wash some clothing more than once, I would recommend a higher end model. This model did not live up to my expectations. No extra rinse cycle, no gentle cycle, etc., it's a VERY basic washer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works better than built. Bought this a couple weeks ago. The wash is good. However, the back panel kind of rocks when I turn the dial. It appears to be made very cheaply. The dial does not match up with notches. I wanted an agitator type machine. I feel it cleans better than the high efficiency units. August 22, 2016
