I am having a pedestal built for this washer/dryer side-by-side combo. Anything special I should consider besides depth and width before building?
Asked by: Lory
Hi Lory- Per the Washer Installation Guide: The floor must be a hard surface with a maximum slope of 1/2" per foot (1.27 cm per 30 cm). To make sure the washer does not vibrate or move, you may have to reinforce the floor. NOTE: If floor is in poor condition, use 3/4" impregnated plywood sheet solidly attached to existing floor covering (Page 20): https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfImages/95/95da2c31-8795-4cf7-b2fe-5007223fc24c.pdf - GFW480SPKRR -Net Weight: 243 lb / GFD48ESPKRR- Net Weight: 137 lb.

Right swing door washer
Asked by: Duda
Hi Duda- Thanks for viewing GE! Front-load washers have the hinge on the left side of the door and open to the left only. They do not have reversible doors because of the electronics involved with the door lock mechanism. The door is reversible on the matching GE® 8.3 cu. ft. capacity Front Load electric ENERGY STAR® dryer with steam (GFD48GSPKDG Gas). Optional Pedestal Accessory GFXP1308FDG (Sold Separately). Optional Stacking Kit GEFLSTACK (sold separately). Thanks for checking! SUEatGEA

4.9 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Stackable Ruby Red Front Loading Washing Machine with Steam, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 135.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Capacity There are some nagging issue that plague this model - the detergent and softener dispenser. Early on the tab broke on it - the reason I was even dealing with the tab was to remove it to clean out PERSISTENT MOLD that grows in there. I've had NUMEROUS GE machines (moved a fair amount) and this is the only one with that problem. Got a new dispenser after the tab broke and same problem. Since I have an extended warranty, I'm going to have that addressed as well as the new problem with the control knob. It now has a grinding feel to it. My last machine - the water pump went out 2.5 years into it so ... rethinking whether I'll buy a GE washer moving forward.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spin cycle issues. The washer is nice, but this is the second one due to a warranty replacement of the first model. The spin cycle is far too aggressive when it spins. The tub cycle while spinning moves from side to side and front to back shaking the floor, is noisy and moves around on the floor due to the out of control spinning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bigger wash tub! So far the machine is working great! The only thing I've noticed is the only way you can use the pods of detergent is to throw it in the tub with the laundry, they don't dissolve when using the drawer area for detergent, bleach, and softener, they gum up and I had to clean the drawer out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge inside We were looking for a big washer because we've got a big family. This does so many clothes in one load without a problem. We love the color and style, the load options, the light for the interior, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer! This washer does what I expected it to do. It is quiet, does a great job getting our laundry clean, and the Tub Clean feature is wonderful for keeping the tub from getting mildew and mold build-up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Spin cycle is far too aggressive The spin cycle is far too aggressive when it starts to spins the washer is level and balanced. I also have to keep the door open to let dry out prevent smelling molding on the rubber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Features We love this washer would tell anyone and everyone buy one they are awesome.My husband's family has always used GE and my family has had a few and we love them and they rock!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Upgrade Lots of features and the first loads we did were much quieter than the previous washer we had. Definitely need to keep the door cracked to let the washer dry after use.
