How loud is this washing machine? It will be on the first floor so trying to get an idea?

How loud is this washing machine? It will be on the first floor so trying to get an idea?
Asked by: Mary
Mine is very quiet. It does have a very high speed spin cycle, though, so if you hear a faint high pitched sound as it is slowing it's the washer, lol. I have the GE Rightheight.

I purchased this washer model number GFW490RPKDG. Do they have a storage pedestal that goes under it?
Asked by: Belinda
This model comes with a 7 inch factory-installed pedestal, but it doesn't have storage, and it can't be removed.

Can you run wash cycles without using the rinse mode? I don't use detergent, I use magnets to wash my clothes so I don't need the rinse cycle. Can the settings eliminate the rinse cycle or does every cycle need to have the rinse option?
Asked by: Stella
All cycles do have rinse.

4.9 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Stackable White Front Loading Washing Machine with RightHeight Design, ENERGY STAR is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 186.

I can see I am not the only one who has reviewed a GE product and labeled it as inferior. I purchased a previous model and the machine washer stopped working a little after three years. Initially it was going to cost me $400 to replace the IMC boards but when the technician replaced the boards and the machine would not work that is when he opened the rear service panel and found a small water leak between the motor and the tub. The small leak was not noticeable from the outside but this small water leak shorted the entire system. I tried to have GE replace the machine due to poor workmanship but they only discount for a new model. DO NOT BUY GE. They do not stand by their product.

We have the previous model of this washer and it died just shy of 2 years. Changed the IMC (twice), RPS module (twice), STATOR and nothing brought it back to life. Still waiting for GE technician but I already spent over 600$ in repairs following the ERROR codes reported by test mode 21 (t21). I have 3 kids and a lot of laundry and getting a tech appointment takes a LONG time! They wont come until January 29th and will charge me 118$ just for him to show up! Now I have to go to the laundry mat at 7$ a load! I don't believe GE is backing this model very well and I'm not sure I'll buy again from them unless this is resolved to my liking. Maybe I'll update my review later if I get a swift and cheap resolution.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Read reviews before purchasing I loved the height and features of these models. But, the washer has only lasted me 3 years. Bearings have gone out, occasionally holds water in dispenser, and have to manually turn off or it will continue to spin. Displeased due to the cost of these units and not holding up longer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not last long I've had this washer for about 4 years now, and at first it was great....after a couple of years, not so much. Constantly have drainage and leaking issues, it has been repaired more in one year than my 15 year old washer of a different brand EVER was. It's ridiculous how much I paid vs how badly this thing has worked. I spend all day telling my friends to NEVER get this particular front loader. After 2 years I desperately wanted to sell mine and buy a different one. It's been a nightmare. I have a family of 5, I can't afford for my washer to be working sometimes and not working others. Can't load it to capacity without the drain not working, leaking, musty weird smells. No thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big size but poor quality We bought this "top of the line" unit, and it failed three years down the road. The diagnostic was that it's unable to be repaired, so no we have to buy a new one. We certainly did not get our investment back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Washer dead after 1.5 years The first washer I received was replaced within 3 months with due to the rubber part in the door going bad. I noticed the replacement had a completely different type of rubber. This washer lasted 1.5 years due to the drum/bearing needing to be replaced. Very disappointed and feel as though there is something wrong with this model (as it is not made anymore and so many people had similar issues). GE offered a reduced price (about half price) for the new one which made me take it, but should have pushed further to get more information on the issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This thing is a piece of JUNK! Avoid! Had this (and the matching dryer) for about two years. The matching dryer is wonderful but the washer is a piece of JUNK! The thing was in for repairs multiple times. It finally seemed to be fixed and it stopped working, again (literally, within two weeks of it being returned to us "fixed".) This time they said it was a faulty switch. We're done with it. The thing was a lemon from DAY ONE. We bought this worthless thing thinking it was "top of the line"... boy, were we wrong. We'll never buy GE again. Hopefully the rest of the GE appliances in the house stink less than this thing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Moderately content Cycles are very long, typically well over an hour. The dispenser drawer retains water that must be emptied to accurately measure detergent and softener liquids. Hair, pet fur, and small debris accumulate on the door and under the gasket with no easy way to remove it. A filter would be better. But the machine gives me clean laundry and does not go out of balance like top-loaders. Hopefully it will last a long time.
