Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great GE Appliance Large Capacity and Easy to Use. We washed a variety of clothes and pretty much used every setting on this appliance from dedicates and heavy soil sanitation. My wife and I are actually excited to do laundry. This GE appliance was to replace tired 11 year old GE Washer we had that just recently failed. The matching Dryer is great as well. December 23, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Do not buy this unless you extended service contract! I purchased this product 1-30-13 and had no problems until a month ago. I paid for service plan and service men have attempted to fix it. Big hassle for us, am hoping they will buy it out. No more G.E. for me, will check consumer comments before next purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Can I get negative star review? Owned this washer for two weeks and never washed a load. GE service man came out and said the transmission was bad. After a follow up with consumer relations (consumer excuses) we were told just to return them and we would not be helped. BAD FOR BUSINESS GE! So we will not buy any more GE since we learned early how bad their service is. September 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by TERRIBLE NOISY just like cheap brands. Does NOTHING to wash out dog hair. The feature to rebalance a shifted load is a joke. It merely adds more water and then attempts to spin again. This can continue for hours. Ultimately I just open it to shift it manually. I've had this machine for two months. It is nothing more than attractive. I will be sending it back for a washer with a positive review on Consumer Reports. February 24, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Love an option for steam but... High-Efficiency washers do not get heavily soiled clothes clean for the most part. I discovered this during my work at a cloth diaper company. I did customer support for several years. When high-efficiency machines came along, we started receiving calls from all over the world from people saying the diapers were not getting clean. We could not help but notice a common theme - HE washing machines. Bring back the washing machines that let the operator control the amount of water! As much as I wanted one of these shiny new machines, we bought a used washing machine with heavy agitation and water levels that can be selected. Save money! April 17, 2014
