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

Customer Reviews

4.2 cu. ft. Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 1236.
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)!

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.

It consistently becomes unbalanced and doesn't finish a load. You have to mind it--rearrange the items inside several times throughout the cycle. If you don't, you will have a washer full of dripping wet clothing. BE WARNED: You have only 48 hours from purchase/delivery of appliance purchased from Home Depot to return it. We are stuck with this poorly-designed "Amerian-made" washer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Washes dry I bought this washer 2 months ago and wish I could take it back. I cannot get it to put enough water in to cover the clothes in it. If you open the lid in the middle of the wash cycle the clothes level is 4 to 6" above the water level. I expect my good shirts will be shot in 6 months or less. I will be calling to have a service person look at it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ok i dont think youwant to publish this this washer has no place to put the laundry soap u either dump it in the tub or on the clothes either one i dont like and it seems to get out of balance alot and i dont overload...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not happy with washing time! Our 1988 washing machine had to be replace last week. Never EVER had to have a day of service and it looked like it was brand new. So we purchased another GE washer. This thing takes FOREVER to wash a load of clothes. They look clean and seem to be a tad drier when they came out of washer. Will see with more washes if it is my fault with the settings that are a little confusing.It shakes like crazy when spinning.... old one didn't do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the flexability of cycle and water level Clothes are easy to access, come up very clean and spun dry. The large capacity handles a blanket well. Did not want a front loader because of the extra large size. This machine with the narrow agitator works great. Does not lock until the spin cycle and you can adjust the water level.. It is perfect.
