Does this machine have any type of lint filter and a automatic fabric softener dispenser??

I am looking at buying this machine and was going through all of the questions, but found out nothing about a lint filter. I have a washing machine now that does not have one and lint gets all over the clothing.
I do not have an automatic fabric softener dispenser now, and it is a pain to try to catch the rinse cycle all the time.

Answer: 
I hate my washer.. because it leaves white marks on my dark clothes. Regardless if they are rayon or cotton. Frustrating. I tried running them through a separate rinse cycle. I wash my clothes in order... towels, whites, colors, then dark's trying to remove some of the lint residue - I guess that is what is ruining my clothes. I use he detergent and also liquid. Everything suggested doesn't work.

Answer: 
I am not sure about the lint filter - but so far have not had a problem with lint on the clothes.
As for the fabric softener, the center agitator has a well in the top for fabric softener. You put in what you want and then fill it the rest of the way with plain water. I do not use liquid fabric softener, so have not used it.
I hope this helps.

You do not need to order any additional hoses or connecting items. There will be a drain hose with the washer. Hopefully you have a laundry area with a receptacle to receive the water coming from the washer via the hose provided.

Answer: 
The washer comes with a flexible plastic drain hose that you drain into a utility sink. It is not pre shaped like my old rubber drain hose that you could just hook over the edge of the sink and it stayed put. It comes with a plastic hose fitting but I used a plastic zip tie to secure it to a nearby water pipe to keep it in place. I kept my old hose as the new one seems flimsy.

Regarding Manual Override of Automatic Load Sensing...

This question is from 3.9 DOE cu. ft. Top Load Washer in White
Asked by
Blairsville, GA
Read all my Q&A
March 1, 2014
We have had the washer for a couple of months and tried the various cycles, etc. The very specific question that I have is just how much water should be in the tub for the manual override setting of "Super"? I loaded it with a few blankets, sheets and such- certainly a FULL tub of clothes, but NOT "packed down" like I was stuffing it or anything. After the fill (about two minutes into agitation), it sounded like the machine was really "laboring" to agitate. I paused it, and the top of the blankets were pretty much "dry"... the water level was a full 8 inches from the gray rubber which surrounds the tub at the top. In a response posted 30Sept12, the GE person mentioned 16 (or 18?) gallons would be used with the highest "override" setting. Is this STILL the case, because I don't think the tub was more than 2/3 full? Please advise- it is currently still under warrantee and we need to know if a check-up service call is warranted- thanks.

We all know this is the biggest problem of all new HE machines. After spending around $2000 to buy the front load machine from Maytag, and HE top load machine from LG, both have same problems, the water level is not enough for any normal wash. We decided two years ago, to go back to "the good old day washing machine" make from GE , GTWN2800DWW. ALL PROBLEMS SOLVED.

The answer to this question by "Sue" from GE ANSWERS on 03March14 is, in my opinion, definitely the CORRECT answer. If this washer were to fill with 14 inches of water on the "Jumbo" manual override setting, then I would be very pleased with this washing machine.

The answer to this question by "Sue" from GE ANSWERS on 03March14 is, in my opinion, definitely the CORRECT answer. If this washer were to fill with 14 inches of water on the "Jumbo" manual override setting, then I would be very pleased with this washing machine. HOWEVER, the machine will fill to ONLY 10 inches of water... which is a BIG difference. A full load of clothes, sheets, blankets or ANYTHING #not over stuffed!# will NOT get completely wet or washed... and the normally quiet agitator will sound like it is "struggling" to move the soggy clothing.
The other answer on 05March14 about the service center's "insistence" that the INSUFFICIENT #per Sue's official response# amount of water using JUMBO/maximum settings is "normal", is also correct. The service center will NOT schedule a service call for us #under WARRANTEE#, even though I spent 30 minutes on the phone "troubleshooting" potential causes for low water level, and we found NONE. Their response as to how much water should be in the tub for a Jumbo load changed 3 times during the course of that call. Their final determination was that I didn't understand how a high efficiency machine is SUPPOSED to use less water, and I shouldn't be concerned with the water level. I was told to review information provided on the GE website and watch a video on the subject, which would alleviate my concerns.
My suggestion to potential buyers is that you should measure for YOURSELVES just how high 10 inches of water in the tub would look PRIOR to buying this GE product. It will be completely obvious that it ISN'T enough... and what looks like a reasonably large capacity machine can not and WILL NOT adequately wet a full load of laundry with a 10 inch fill. Since Sue from GE ANSWERS indicates that you SHOULD get a 14 inch fill, be certain that the salesperson gives you this assurance in writing, since the Service Scheduling Center will "disagree".
It seems my only option remaining is to speak with a CSR at the Home Depot where I purchased the unit to inquire about a return for refund, then purchase a DIFFERENT machine. It will NOT be another GE... Read Less

Also watch out cause your clothes will get all twisted and wrinkled. Repairmen have warned me about GE appliances, and telling me to stray away. This GE model GTWN4250D1WS washer of 2 weeks is going back tomorrow. Thank goodness, I held onto my old one, and didn't let them haul it away for free. This is a ok washer if you always have small loads, as you don't get much water into the tub. Read Less

If the SMALL load size is selected, the washer will fill with approximately seven (7) inches of water. If the Precise Fill automatic option is selected the water level will be between seven (7) inches and fourteen (14) inches. The lid must remain closed Read More

If the Precise Fill automatic option is selected the water level will be between seven (7) inches and fourteen (14) inches. The lid must remain closed during Precise Fill.
This is a high-efficiency washing machine. This system requires less water while providing effective cleaning
action. You may notice that the water level is lower than on your previous washer. This is normal.

Hi, The short answer to your question is the water in my washer comes down about 5 inches (or 6 holes down) from the bottom of the gray rubber (on Manual Super, Colors, Hot). Long answer..... We had a lot of problems finding a washing machine that actually cleans the clothes. Originally we got the LG high efficiency and our clothes were not clean at all. I went back to Home Depot and returned it for the GE top loader. While it isn't nearly as large, it does get clothes clean, you just can't stuff it full. The sales associate there told me that the new washing machines do not use as much water as the old units did even at their max capacity. I would try it on a load of clothes (blankets may absorb more water) and see where it fills to. If it is about 6 holes down, I think it is doing it's job. Hope that helps! Read Less

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Really bad. Only had washer for 7 months when it start acting up. When doing hot loads it would only fill with hot water with lid up.As soon as you put lid down all cold came out. At first it would only spray cold to adjust temperature while filling,then it was all cold with lid down.Discovered it while doing towels when water was all cold. Need to call repairman because now it won't fill at all (this after a year ). When I had it on super level it would fill to large level, then only small level. Finally when doing small load it abruptly stopped filling and start agitating. Now won't fill at all. Washer does not get the clothes clean, they come out really wrinkled and the spin dry goes on forever. Worse washer ever! March 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GE Washer Model # GHWN4250DWW This washer was discontinued, it has been a headache since just over a year old. Have had the circuit board replaced 3 times. The last time the repairman said no more problems. As soon as I washed the first load the same problem! April 20, 2016

Most times I have to run the rinse cycle several times in order to remove the suds and I use All Free and Clear HE pods. Also the clothes become so tangled and the load seems to become off balance and shifts and doesn't spin properly so I have move them around and run the rinse and drain cycle several times.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No-Nonsense, Robust, and Solid I bought this product for a number of reasons, and our whole family has been very pleased with it. Call me Old School, but I wanted a "normal" washer -- top-loading, and without the fancy computer board that beeps and talks to you. This washer is just that, only it still has some nice features -- there are lots of settings, such as one for towels and sheets; plus I like the cool water setting -- great for energy savings, and it helps the clothes last longer. Really nice washer for the money, and I feel good that is has the Home Depot name behind it. July 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This machine is a joke... Greetings. This machine is anything but efficient. It will fill to only 10" of water on super setting this after having TWO sensors replaced at OUR expense. I would LOVE to speak with someone from GE about this but we can not get anyone to saying anything other than, 10" of water is normal. Except for that very first CS rep who said, 14" of water on super setting. Alas, we have figured out how to fix it! Set it on Super and put in a half of a full load. It works GREAT this way.
