Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 110 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by I so want to recommend this washer... This washer is so beautiful. You will want to stand over it and watch through the glass lid as the tub fills with splashes of water enhanced beautifully by the LED lighting. It also makes politely pleasant noises to alert you about various things. Get the equally beautiful matching dryer and watch them talk to each other about the current load selection! Prefill the detergent and softener and washing is a breeze--when the darn thing actually works. We have had ours for three months, and then it started pausing in the middle of any and all cycles. It would take two days to get through a single load. First technician dispatched informed me that I was loading it wrong, but as soon as he left the same thing happened, even though I carefully arranged the clothes like a mother robin would arrange her nest. I tried to figure this out on my own, and in the process discovered that installers switched hot and cold inputs, resulting in super wrinkly clothing and a blazing hot laundry room. Sadly, switching the lines out did not help the pausing problem (technician did not notice the mistake, nor did the dryer installer, who had to attach a hose to dryer for steam feature), but since I have fixed the hoses, I no longer have to run a fan in laundry room. Or didn't before the washer completely stopped working. A week ago we could still get a full load run fifty percent of the time, but now it is completely dead. Yes, it still looks pretty, except for the now dirty water stuck in it, but dead. Second technician dispatched to look at issue reported that a batch of washers left factory with bad boards. First board they shipped apparently did not include all the right components, so could not be installed. So now we are waiting for another board, and another technician. The thing to note about this is that it takes a MINIMUM of a week to get a technician to your house to diagnose the issue (if he is willing to admit that it is a problem with the washer, and not with your washing technique). If a part is needed, that will be at least another 4 days before it gets there and then someone comes out to install it. Tomorrow will theoretically mark our 5th technician visit, so if you do the math, you can see we have not been fully functional for some time. Thankfully, it is just my GE employee husband (which is why I bought this brand) and I doing laundry, but still, four weeks without a washer is WAY TOO LONG when you have spent this much money. I have also noticed that once you tell people that you have a fancy HE washer, you start to hear horror stories. The tech telling me that I am loading it wrong did that for a reason. Apparently even though there are cycles on this thing for bulky items, it is highly recommended that you NOT use them or you are on the fast track to a drum rebuild. I have also been told this washer and others like it will last a MAXIMUM of five years. So do yourself a favor: don't go by looks or the pretty sounds this washer makes. Save yourself time and money and buy an old school top loader with a conventional agitator. Three months from now you will thank me. November 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will Recommend Washer to Friends! Bought the washer two weeks ago and really happy with the performance of it compared the last washer I had. Great job GE! May 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So many nice features Preloading detergent and fabric softner is really nice feature. As long as, it's topped off, don't have to worry about adding them when you wash cloths anymore May 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Large family needed larger washer Too much reading too many choices, this washer always came to the top of the list. April 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great feature excelent! i would recomend it 100%, it´s easy to work April 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I wanted I needed a washer to be able to manage king size bedding and other bulky items but also to be energy efficient from much smaller regular loads. This does both. I love the automatic dispensing of detergent and softener. Great features. April 22, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Most unsatisfactory Controls do not fit the task, cycles are too long, spinning ruins clothes. Have had repair people onsite multiple times. Some cycles do not allow low spin. Example, sheets and towels must be washed "hand cycle" to protect from damage. April 16, 2015
