Customer Questions & Answers

When do I add detergent? Can I add before hitting Start?

It sounds like the washer is draining during the 'Sensing/Fill'' cycle. My detergent isn't drained out during this Sensing cycle when lid locks, correct?
Asked by: Michael
You want to add the detergent before you add the clothes.

Consumer Reports list this machine as a Top Loader Agitator and not as a HE one. Can we use regular detergents?
Asked by: Len
Yes. Mine says it is a HE machine. I make my own detergent. This machine washes our clothes much better than our old machine did.

is agitator suppose to come off in machine

Just Got machine and washed a thin blanket that didn't fill machine even half full. When went to take it out of machine agitator was off. Snapped it back in and did a load with two bath towels did it again. Why is this happening what a joke if can't even wash two towels or a small blanket in machine.
Asked by: Patricia
Have been in contact with Home Depot as it broke fabric softener cup. Happy to say they said it is a defect because it came off in every load done. They r bringing a new one out in few days

I thought I could wash a comforter

Just bought the machine 4 days ago. Washed my queen comforter and it broke the agitator clean off. All plastic, of course. I'm going to take the machine back and get another, but I don't trust it now.
Asked by: chiclet
To have a machine that works like a charm, totally fuss free and efficient, that made it through 8 moves all over the country and took care of a family of 5 for 30 years - I'm realizing now, my 1986 GE Filter Flo was priceless. Laundry is a necessary evil; you just want it done well and get it behind you. You aren't supposed to have to THINK about it and STRESS over it. It's not home decor, not a special event, not a skill or a craft. It's HOUSEWORK. I sure hope I don't regret it but I went ahead and replaced the one that broke with the same machine. I'm just so overwhelmed with reading reviews and hearing how most people aren't happy with ANY machine they've bought within the last 10-15 years. I decided it really didn't matter; I know I won't ever experience the same lasting satisfaction with anything I buy today. I'll never understand why GE would discontinue such a valuable, indispensable product.

4.2 cu. ft. Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 1165.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sensor Washing, worst thing ever !!!! I tried out this machine for 1 month, today it is being picked up and returned. Sensor washing, low water and slow agitation may be the new breakthrough, but nothing beats being able to adjust the water level you want to use, or how long you want to wash your items. I tried small loads where the sensor sensed no clothes inside and shut down twice on me. I tried 2 down jackets, bulky but light, even with the deep water button pushed, it wouldn't cover the jackets, not just a low water treatment, half way up, hardly wetting the complete jackets. Forget about ever giving a very soiled item a vigorous washing or soaking, not going to happen. To sum it up, try to stick with a machine without sensors, one with control on water levels, timers, soaking, and agitation control. You don't need to hear music when buttons are pushed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I would have purchased a wash board instead! Hate this washer. I feel I have to constantly monitor wash loads. I have used the sensor & clothes have been twisted up in knots from not having enough water to move in. This has been especially disastrous in using the delicate cycle. Yeah, I can stand there & push the deep fill button till clothes are covered but WHY should I have to? Have set the washer to "bulky" & deep rinse. Hope the thing dies in the first year. Have wasted my money on the five year extended warranty with R.C. Wiley Co. where I purchased it. First sign of a breakdown, to the dump it goes (unless I get even more disgusted than I am now, at which point it's out of here sooner)!

Walks - even after being leveled it walks around. Speed - takes forever to sense the load, and start the cycle. Usability - have to activate cycle multiple times just to get one load to run.

It's stylish, functional and it was very reasonably priced. Delivery was timely and easy and, most importantly, the washer gets our clothes clean. I love the full-height agitator. This may seem old school to some but the agitator is what really makes the difference in getting clothes clean. I love all of the various settings: from pre-soak to heavy clean to 2nd rinse. Usually, I don't use all of these settings because I don't see a difference but with this washer, the settings really work and you can tell the difference, for instance with towels, whites and other heavily soiled items. The only thing I would change about this washer is the lid lock. I hate lid lock but at least this model doesn't lock until the washer is filled and clothes start agitating. This is helpful when you need to throw in that sock that never made it downstairs or the dirty dish towel you forgot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk Already had to replace the washer once. Loud, noisy and once again the electronics are broken. Only had this a few months and wish I had never bought it.

I have always had GE appliances except when I bought a new front load washer/dryer set. So very sorry I ever bought the front loader. When I could not deal with the issues any longer, I decided I wanted a top loader with an agitator. I looked to GE and found this model. I was a little apprehensive due to some of the reviews, such as shaking and moving all over the floor and how noisy it was reported to be. We decided to buy it anyway and I have been so happy. Yes, it makes different noises from the older type top loaders but it is not unbearable at all. Most importantly, it does a fantastic job. My husband is so happy to have white socks again. The old front loader had my whites looking dirty and dingy from the very beginning. I could never get all the water out of my towels with the old washer either. It would take an eternity for my towels to dry. The GE spins out all the water no matter how large the load is. I waited to write this review til I had the washer for a while. It was delivered on 11/3/16 and has been working as advertised ever since. It is a joy using this machine compared to my old one. This model has just as many options as my old front loader, so I certainly do not feel I am missing anything. I simply love my new GE top loader WITH agitator. Laugh if you want, but that was extremely important to me. I have had GE appliances for nearly all of my married life, 48 years, and they have never let me down and this washer is great. I would recommend this washer to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I don't like it I bought this about 2 months ago and knew within 2 weeks that i was not happy with it, but didn't want to go through the hassle of returning it. Sometimes the lid locks,and sometimes it doesn't. But what i absolutely hate about it is that it agitates and spins at such a high speed (even on gentle cycle). Also the fabric softener dispenser has such a large opening, that it splashes the softener directly on the clothes. I never write reviews but i really don't like this machine. I have other GE products that i do like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the deep fill and agitator We live on a farm and things get dirty, The previous W/D set I had was HE only and no agitator, I just got rid of it not adding enough water to thoroughly clean the clothes. It took forever to find a washer that actually will fill and has an agitator and boy am I pleased, this one has the features of an HE as well as old school and combines the best of both worlds and gets the job done! Thanks GE- for listening to what we want as consumers, not what Marketer's tell you that it's the next greatest "thing"
