Customer Questions & Answers

can I control the water level

Asked by: kimberly
Hello - this is Nancy at GE and I am happy to help you. This washer has the automatic fill system, which will analyze how much water is needed based on the weight of the clothing and the wash options you selected. You can also select an extra rinse, soak or the softener option. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

This mdel a an energy star appliance but not an HE. Does that mean I can control the water level? I want to be able to soak my clothes.

That at times is the only way to get stains out. Thanks.

Customer Reviews

5.0 DOE cu. ft. Top Load Washer with Steam in Metallic Carbon, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Fetures After have the machine two years. We started having problems with the machine. It often spills suds over the basket and leaks them out on the floor. It's a big mess. Also have problems with the machine not draining properly sometimes. It's so weird one day it works fine and the next make you want to never buy GE Appliance again. For the money we spend on these appliances we should not experience these types of problems in only 2 or 3 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like It! Read the other reviews and wondering if they are reviewing the correct product? Noisy? Not at all! One negative review is on HE washers doesn't mention this machine. Anyway.......My clothes are cleaned perfectly, love the large capacity for king size comforters, love the detergent tanks, I'm happy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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 from Very Disappointed Customer This washing machine was a complete waste of money. Clothes need taken out immediately or they begin to smell. Normal dirt doesn't come out very well. The washing machine smells just sitting with the lid open. Very disappointed with how it works. Was so excited to get such a nice looking washing machine, but it is a joke. I'd go back to my old washer in a second! I've had this for 9 months and had water leak from it multiple times. I do not recommend this washing machine to anyone. Save your money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST WASHER EVER! This is the best washer I've used. Cloths come out very clean, even when they had new stains and without pre-treating them. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with this washer I don't think I would have purchased it for myself, because it has so many features and mainly electronic. But when my husband surprised me with it for Christmas I was overwhelmed, and them quickly over joyed. I quickly read the manual because it looked so different than anything I had owned. This made me realize the washer isn't as difficult to use and I thought. It cleans amazingly. I have yet to find a single thing I do not love about it. I hope that it works this great for its entire appliance life.
