Yes it is. And it is beautiful, very shiny and smooth. And the tub has lots of room with ample space for those large loads. I have had mine for several months and I love it. My clothes come out clean and it spins out so much water it takes less time to dry. This is an awesome washer.

It's not really an "either/or" machine. You can control many functions just as you would in an older style, non-efficient, laundry washer.
Every washing machine for the past 50 years has been operated in part by a "computer." Until the last 10 to 15 years, the "computers" were comprised of heavy electrical switches called soleniods or relays. The switches were activated usually by a clock-timer mechanism

It's not really an "either/or" machine. You can control many functions just as you would in an older style, non-efficient, laundry washer.
Every washing machine for the past 50 years has been operated in part by a "computer." Until the last 10 to 15 years, the "computers" were comprised of heavy electrical switches called soleniods or relays. The switches were activated usually by a clock-timer mechanism (either a clock motor or a clock spring). In turn, the electrical switches activated mechanical valves, gears, levers, pumps and pulleys that filled the laudry tub at predetermined levels, spun or agitated the tub to wash at predetermined times and speeds, drained it, refilled it to rinse, spin and drain again.
This unit has a microprocessor that replaces the clock-motor cycle selector (that is why the cycle selector does not move like a clock through each cycle). The microprocessor also replaces most of the old fashioned solenoids and relays. This unit also has a more efficient motor and pump that replace most of the old gears, pulleys and levers.

GE recommends the use of HE detergent with HE washers and this is considered an HE washer. That being said, I have been using liquid detergent with a very small amount of an additive "enhancer" with great results.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 3629 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worthless machine Wish they had stopped making this washer a little sooner so I wouldn't have to deal with it every day. It doesn't fill with enough water to get my clothes clean no matter what fill level its on. I keep it on Super all the time now and only do half loads or if I do a full load I fill it with extra water from a hose. (To the top of the inside tub is 19" but it will only fill to 13 1/2" with clothes.) See picture. My whites are getting grayer every week so I'm wondering just how dirty the jeans are. We live on a farm and get our clothes very dirty. Isn't it logical that clothes need water to transmit the dirt out of the clothes? Whoever dreamed this machine up must never have had to clean really dirty clothes. I hate this machine. May 28, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by doesn't hold up Nice washer at first but high speed spin causes machine to tear itself apart after a few months. First repairs under warranty. We were told so much had been replaced it was essentially a new machine, but a few months later it's dead again. Worthless tub of water now. April 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EPA regulations waste more water This washer has many special features. They all work according to the manual. It's easy to use. The water levels are very frustrating 8" deep with a load of sheets. I use Max. load, deep water rinse and there are still dry spots when I hang them on the line. The tub is giant and could easily hold a light comforter, but I'm not sure how it would get clean. If I just need it freshened up, I'm sure that would work. GE suggest dropping the clothes around the agitator instead of loosely laying them around. I will try that with my next load and see if it helps. Maybe I'm saving water, but I'm definitely using more electricity during the looooooong wash cycle. Sometimes needing to rinse and spin again. July 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied... I decided to order this washer online, even though I visit my two nearby Home Depot's regularly. (Twice today alone for various DIY projects.) I bought my last GE washer in the store 8 years ago but I felt shopping online would be much easier and it was! I had two contacts with CSR's prior to placing the order. The one done online by "chat" (sorry but I forget the CSR's name) was quick, helpful and professional. Unfortunately, when I needed to call in with another question, "Brenda" was less than helpful. I knew that the braided stainless steel water supply lines were required (a good thing) but I wanted to know if the flexible, plastic drain line was included or available for purchase. Brenda didn't know and apparently didn't care to be bothered researching this. Highly unprofessional. It turns out that it IS included and I think your website should note that. The delivery a couple of days later was pulled off with the efficiency of a "Special Ops" mission. Fast, professional and neat. Ryan and his helper were consummate professionals! So far, I really like this washer and my clothes really do feel cleaner. I like the "PreciseFill" option. I know that with my old machine I was always selecting to use too much water. All around, a great experience. August 8, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GE washer Worst washer we have ever bought, so noisy and takes too long to do a load. July 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use Totally satisfied & would recommend it to a frienf June 28, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Okay machine with a really bad discharge hose I purchased this machine right here from Home Depot's website Order# W356378600.) The machine was delivered last week as promised. Soon after the installation, the installer found a small crack in the discharge hose. This is a very common problem in those corrugated black plastic pipes often used with sump pumps. I called GE call center and they ordered a replacement hose for me. Much to my dismay the package arrived today with Glisten Washer Magic liquid instead of the hose. I would not have used their inferior hose anyway. I found a much better quality replacement hose for $14 at Lowes. I wrote a letter to Mr. Jeffrey Immelt, the CEO of GE. I got a call from his office acknowledging the receipt. No action has taken place, not that it matters to me any more. I do not find the unit to be worth $584. GE is taking a free ride on its past good reputation. I for one am done with them. April 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Covers all the family's needs I purchased this to replace an awful front loader. There's nothing like an original design. The multitude of settings suits every type of laundry. It took me a bit of time to understand the water levels but it's only been a couple of months. So far, so good. June 28, 2016
