Rated 5 out of 5Â by hvpia239 So happy with this washer!
I purchased this new washer after my 12 year old GE died. The transmission bit the dust and sprayed transmission oil all over a load of towels. I researched for 4 hours and kept coming back to this washer. I knew that I wanted a HE washer, top loader, no agitator, stainless steel drum, energy efficient, and large enough to wash my king size comforter. I also wanted the least amount of buttons and things to break on the control panel as possible. This washer fit the bill and then some. I had to order it because they didn't have it in the store. However, with free haul away of my old washer, free delivery and set up of my new washer I was ok with it. Plus, they could deliver the following day. The delivery guys were great. Answered all my questions and even showed me how to use my new appliances without me asking.
I have had this washer (I also went ahead and replaced my dryer with the match to the washer...just do it! You'll be happy you did!) for just over 3 weeks now. I have used every cycle on it and have been nothing but happy. My clothes come out clean and due to the high spin cycle everything dries in less time. Now 6 loads of laundry is 3 loads of laundry. I'm so happy! Oh and the towels that smelled like transmission oil from the old washer that I thought for sure were ruined...I washed them in my new washer and they came out smelling perfectly clean. Not one trace of oil residue or smell.
Read the instruction manual cover to cover. Read how to load this washer as it not the same as loading a washer with an agitator. Read the directions about how much detergent to use, fabric softener, etc. It doesn't wash the same as your "old" washer did and you'll be glad it doesn't. Every load comes out clean smelling and looking.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Angie Ditch the front loader and buy this one!
My husband, who researches EVERYTHING before buying, did just so before purchasing this washer. I'm SO happy he talked me out of a front loader - which we had previously and made our clothes smell so bad - and into this one This washer is HUGE - I can wash so much at one time; including my king size comforter. The clothes are practically dry when you remove them from the washer which results in less dry time. It's so nice to finally have fresh smelling clothes. It has plenty of cycles and easy to use. The cute little noises it makes are just an added bonus. So many products now-a-days are not made to last very long, so I hope I can still give the same review on this ten years from now.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Snapper Nothing but TROUBLE!!!!
This washer has been nothing but trouble. The spin cycle fails to engage about 40% of the time regardless of load size or cycle setting. The result is wet clothes and the drain and spin cycle shuts down after 2 or 3 minutes. GE repair has been out three times, downloaded new software twice and replaced the mother board and pressure sensor and it still doesn't work. Please take it back Home Depot. You can have it!! What a lemon.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AMGardener We LOVE Our Giant GE Washer & Dryer Set
We recently replaced our washer with a GE 5.0 cu. ft. Top Load Washer, which we LOVE. Just make sure that you load your clothes around the edge (in a donut shape). You have to be able to see the big silver dot at the bottom of the tub. We always use the extra rinse, as we did with our prior washer, which also used HE detergent. We also replaced our very old dryer, to get one that could hold the same volume as the new washer. We selected the matching GE 7.8 cu. ft. Electric Dryer. We LOVE this washer and dryer set. They are huge, offers intelligent options for washing and drying cycles, they dryer has a nice interior light, and they play pleasant songs when they start and stop. We highly recommend this giant GE washer and dryer set.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by southrngurl WOW!
We just had this machine delivered yesterday. I put in a load that was normal for my old one to test it out. When it was done, I opened the lid and thought "wow, that was a tiny load." This machine will definitely help me get out of the laundry room quicker seeing as I have a teenager, a 6 year old, and a newborn...all girls. We upgraded from a front load washer and I don't think we will ever do the front-loaders again. I love the fact that I can get so much done in half the time that it took with my old one.
