Nope. Mine stops as soon as you open the lid.

Does this come with a power cord? It says no but I did not think you could take the cords off them.

Does this come with a power cord? It says no but I did not think you could take the cords off them.
Asked by: AJ
Yep, power cord included and wired. No hoses though on the Home Depot branded one. If the second letter after the model number "GTW685" is a "C" like "GTW685BCxxx", it is a contract partner selling the machine and it is supposed to include hoses, all other partners do not, like HD, Lowes, Mabe and Premium colored machines.

At what point in a wash cycle do you push the Deep Fill button to add more water?

At what point in a wash cycle do you push the Deep Fill button to add more water?
Asked by: Ronn702
Before starting you can hold the Deep Fill button down for 3 seconds and it will then fill the washer to maximum level after you start the cycle. You can also tap (a short push) the Deep Fill button before or after the cycle starts to add 3 gallons of water. Not sure how many taps you can do but I have tapped it three times AFTER the cycle has started and it added water for each tap.

4.5 cu. ft. High-Efficiency White Top Load Washing Machine, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 869.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from out of balance easily This washer replaces a 16-year-old machine. The basket is different. It seems to be suspended and more sensitive to being out of balance. When this happens, unlike my old machine, it does not notify you. It just tries to add more water and balance. But the clothes sometimes come out sopping wet. The solution is to watch this when you think it might happen, hit start, which will put machine on pause, open the lid and manually balance, then hit start. You need to be careful to add items that can balance, 2 towels not 1, etc. But even doing this I don’t think I will ever be able to wash a small throw rug without it coming out dripping. I have not found the water level to be a problem. I like the soak feature which is not on all brands. Also, some brands have very deep baskets that are hard to reach. I don’t know why GE does not talk about this more as with their baskets it’s easy to reach the bottom

I have not had a new washing machine for close to 10 years so I had to do a good amount of research. Decided I needed one with an agitator again based on reviews of those without one. The washing basket is pretty big compared to my last machine (measurement pictures included). You receive agitation from the center agitator, a bottom agitator, and even the sides of the basket through it’s contoured surface. My clothes are fairly dirty due to my line of work and this machine does a great job on cleaning them when I use the deep fill option. For less soiled clothes that need less agitation or water, the deep fill is not necessary, and you are therefore able to conserve water in that manner. There is also a pre-soak option where the machine will fill, agitate, and allow the load to soak for up to 2 hours before resuming the cycle. I’ve had this machine for about a month now, all and all this machine is updated, versatile, and quiet. Many ways to get a good thorough clean, by controlling the soaking time, the amount of water used, the temperature, and the spin within the cycle. Highly recommended.

On the first load, I ran the washer with about 1/3 of a tub of clothes. I ran the color cycle with no deep fill. I watched the entire cycle and there was so little water in it, 5 minutes into it the clothes had not moved from their original position. Some of the shirts weren't even wet on the side facing the lid. Despite having an agitator, the clothes never once rotated, rolled or moved from where they started. THIS IS TERRIBLE! So, the next load I put it on bulk items so that I could use deep fill. This load went a little better because the load went half way up the agitator and the water came closer to the top of the clothing. This load actually wetted the entire garment and I saw some movement from the agitator. The third load was smaller, only up 1/3 of the agitator. Again, I put it on a cycle that allowed deep fill, however the water level never went over half of the clothing. I watched as it washed yet the clothing never once moved and the tops of the clothing never got wet! YOUR DESIGN IS NOT ACCEPTABLE! Don't bother to tell me that it meets government water standards because those standards aren't getting the dirt out of my clothes. I just spent a bunch of money on a piece of junk that doesn't effectively do it's job. I want my old washer back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back to an Agitator I've had the washer for a month now and love it. I had a Maytag Bravos Commercial series washer for 7 years and the bearing went out. I knew I wanted to go back to an agitator washer and I'm so glad I did. The clothes seems cleaner and I've noticed that there is no soap or fabric softener residue left (or not nearly as much as with the Maytag). The also LOVE the extra fill feature. Like so many reviews that I read prior to purchasing, I agree that the government shouldn't be involved in determining how much water I use when washing clothes. At least this feature allows for additional water to be added (on all cycles but normal - which is the cycle that the government used for their "standards"). When purchasing, we talked to several customers and everyone had the same story....it didn't matter what brand was purchased, nothing lasts like it used to! I actually went to purchase a Speed Queen and spend the extra money, however, the tub was so small that I decided on the GE. So far, I'm happy with my purchase and hope that I get several years from this washing machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Washer This washer is very different from my last one. It is a high efficiency model and the water usage is so low! It senses the load first by spraying short bursts of water and spins to determine the load size. Then the water starts adding in and it does not seem like enough water to cover the load of wash but as it gets going you can watch thru the glass top and see it working very hard spinning and washing. What I'm trying to say is that although it's very different, it has cleaned all my loads of clothing, sheets, towels and now rugs very well. They come out of the washer practically water free and won't be dripping for sure! As a result the drying time is greatly reduced! It has only been a week and several loads but I'm loving this product! I also purchased the coordinating dryer and together they are a very efficient team!! Laundry is clean and finished in no time!

So far I have not had any issues. I love my washing machine. I am so happy to have a washing machine with an agitator. I recommend this washing machine to anyone who is looking to get away from the front load washers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great job! I love this new machine. After my previous GE Profile bit the dust I began my search for a new machine. Wasn't sure I would get another GE but I am glad I did. After reading reviews of this and other brands I had narrowed it down to two brands. I like that the GE offered the ability to add items after the machine started and also that I can easily adjust water levels. There are several setting I use frequently that are not available on other brands at this price point. The owners manual is well written and explains the various settings. This machine is extremely easy to use. The clothing come out free of residue and clean. Also, I like that I can wash larger loads than in the previous machine. It has an agitator and functions much like the older machines that actually get all the cloths wet and don't come out stilled folded with white residue. Great improvement from the machines of 10 years ago. Thank you GE.

If you're justifying the slightly higher price because you think you will be able to control it from your phone or talk to it, be aware you need to pay an extra $110 for the Wi-Fi adapter... one adapter for each appliance. Otherwise, It'll just dry your clothes, and it does that well enough. Except that the door has an annoying rattle.
