Customer Questions & Answers

Does this machine have an agitator?

Asked by: Anonymous
It does but it doesn't agitate!the Barrell just spins. Hate it!
Answered by: Deedee361

I have had my machine 3 days and it has started making a "clicking" noise when agitating. Does anyone else that has this machine have this problem?

I know that it is supposed to at the begining and end of the agitation cycle, but mine does it the whole time it is agitating, and it didn't do it the first day we had it. GE support says it's normal, but it is driving me crazy.

My Machine worked flawlessly for the first month and a half. Then the dreaded clicking noise started. On the GE site, in the FAQ section, it specifically says clicking noises will be heard at the beginning and end of the agitation cycle. I have had a tech out twice now for the noise. He acknowleged the noise is most definately not normal, and it's a known issue with agitator models. He tried re-balancing the unit, twice, which did not solve the problem. I will bring this machine back to the store in the morning, complete with the service history. Interestingly enough, Home depot has this machine priced very low right now, and a new model GTWN5250DWW (with the same retail price of 649) is now available. This reinforces what I was told by both an in-store associate and a GE tech; That this model is on it's way out the door because of significant transmission issues. To clarify, the noise is not the agitator clicking that is heard at the beginning and end of a cycle, but it's a metallic clicking that can be heard at the precise time power is applied to the agitator to move a few inches. It's a noise that can be heard every 2-3 seconds for the entire agitation cycle. Again, according to GE's site, no clicking noises should be heard DURING the agitating cycle. My machine most recently changed the noise a bit. Now it GRINDS and clicks. Does not sound good.

During spin cycle, the washer makes a very loud banging noise even though the washer is completly level. What could be the problem

Each time I wash I put the clothes loosely and evenly in the washer. I ran the spin cycle w/o any clothes and it was fine, I then put in about six articles of clothing and it proceeded to make the loud banging noise.
Asked by: Anonymous
I had the same exact problem with this machine. It appears to be a common problem with this washer as other reviewers complained about it too. I returned mine and when they came to pick it up, a 4" bolt/screw fell out of the bottom. GE has a major quality control problem or disgruntled employees sabotaging these machines.

How quickly does The Home Depot deliver washers and dryers?

Asked by: Anonymous
We bought ours from the store - because the return policy is better than an online purchase. We bought on a Monday, they delivered it on Wednesday.

Adora 3.9 DOE cu. ft. Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 189.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This washing machine has simple features After shopping around for a new washer and reading endless reviews about each product, I was more confused than ever. I wanted a washer that wasn't smarter than I was. I was not impressed with the new machines that do not have an agitator and weighs your clothes and add the water. I do not have the patience for that. So, I went with the GE Adora and I am very, very satisfied with my new washer. It didn't break the bank with price and it is very quiet. My last washer was a GE and it lasted 14 years. Hopefully, this one will last that long. I love the digital readout that tells me how long the wash cycle will be. I hope this review helps someone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great washer for the price Friend warned me about the new models and the non agitators leaving marks and having special cleaners so I wanted to go with as close to what I know and this machine has not failed me I know that the precise fill is not my most fav but I do use it except when I know I have a really dirty load I use the manual filling buttons. everything is digital so I am a little concerned out the board will hold up with the digital stuff ( i am just old school) but other than that all my clothes come out clean and great looking! bought this sight unseen based off other reviews and love it not many have hand wash cycles love love love

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for large family The features are streamlined and easy to use. The washing machine is quiet and uses less water than my old one but produces cleaner and fresher clothes. The spin cycle is awesome, leaving the clothes practically dry. This reduces drying time. We are a family of seven so it's nice that the washer is so large. I can wash my King size comforter with no problems. I used to have three loads of dark clothes and four loads of light and each have been reduced by one full load. I've only had the washer for about three weeks and I am very pleased so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer so far I have had this washer for a week now and love it! The tub is big and the machine is very quiet during all cycles. I replaced only a 5-year old front loading Kenmore Elite that was a nightmare! My old washer never seemed to clean that great, the spin cycle was very loud, and I hated that I couldn't just throw something in once I started the machine. Eventually our drum shaft broke and was going to cost over $700 to repair! After nothing but problems with the front loader, I was determined to get an "old-school" top loading washer with an agitator. I liked that this washer had the "old-school" features i was looking for, but also the precise-fill feature and the energy efficiency. So far I have done extremely dirty kids clothes, towels, sheets, and a comforter - everything comes out great and very clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality and features This machine replaced an 18-year-old, top-loading GE washer that proved a trouble-free workhorse handling all the filth and sweat of our two outdoorsy, athletic boys. With all the negative reviews of many new washers, I was worried we'd pay much more for a replacement we liked less. Instead, the Adora's proved great. It has excellent capacity and a longer, faster spin cycle that leaves clothes just damp, greatly shortening drying time. The machine's also much quieter, hardly noticeable when we use our basement exercise equipment just a few feet away. With the washer's stepped-up electronics, I'd recommend plugging the washer into a surge protector rather than straight into an outlet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, great value. Replaced our washer and dryer of 28 years that just gave up. Looked at just about everything before deciding on Adora Wash/dryer. Get one with an agitator, those energy star things without an agitator won't get your clothes clean.washer has the right amount of options, not too many to confuse you and just enough for the different types of loads you might want to stuff in it. delivery/take away free, they were on time neat and clean. only con so far is that it doesn't automatically have a second rinse you have to program that in each time. Drier is very quiet and has nice features. Had it about a month so far and am very pleased with performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I did an exhaustive search and for the money could not beat this machine. there are enough settings and wash/spin combos to customize your laundry. My last GE swooshed VERY SLOWLY and I never thought it cleaned well. This one is very quiet and swooshes a lot more. It actually moves the clothes around a lot. It tells you to layer clothes in loosely. if you use the precise fill it will fill for a bit then move the clothes then fill some more and move the clothes so it knows how much water to put in. I have only had it for a few days but have done laundry, bedding etc. and love it so far. If I have any issues I will post again. has a live chat which is really nice. I had several chats to find out which model I wanted and what some of the features did. The only 2 features this Adora series is missing vs the GE 5250 model sold other places is the towels and sheets setting and the quick rinse and maybe the heavy duty setting. But who cares- this does everything you want for $100-$150 less than the other model and you will never miss those other settings. This machine is MUCH better than the other one I had that only lasted 4 yrs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features I like the Precise Fill feature although at first you don't think there is enough water, the manual indicates with this technology there is an efficient amount of water. It also spins the water out of the clothes so it takes less time to dry them either by hanging them or using the dryer. The machine does not rock and roll like some and is less noisy. The only thing I don't care for is when you lift the lid, everything stops. I like to rinse the soap out of the detergent cap as well as check to see if there is enough soap and I can't do that anymore. Not a big problem as it is a safety feature, but something I'll have to get used to.
