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 4.0 out of 5 by 206.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad purchase! We are on our second one of these washers and wished we never bought one. After two years, the first one's bearings went out after gradually sounding like a jet engine. We were told it was a fluke thing and never happens, so we bought another one to give it another try and since it was going to cost more than the price of a new one to have the old one fixed. Now, after having the new one for only FOUR MONTHS, it happened again. Frustrating! At least this time it's under warranty yet, but it's apparent that we're going to have more problems with it in the future. The repairman even said he's dealt with this a lot with this model. Then why are they still selling it?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice features, loud banging noises during spin cycles I won't dwell too much on the nice features of the machine, those are already highlighted. Two weeks after our purchase, the washer started making loud banging noises during spin cycles. We tried different load sizes but to no avail. Those sound like the drum is out of balance and is banging against the sides of the machine. It's loud enough to wake up the whole house if it happens at night. We called GE support and got a technician in a week or so. He said this is normal, and this is how this machine works (!) and that we pretty much we have to live with it. I'm planning on calling GE again as the noise is very rude at night. And I have a feeling that if it keeps on going this route something else is going to break in the washer soon. No, those are definitely NOT normal noises. And if this how normal should be, then I would never buy or recommend this washer to anyone despite the cool features. I can get a better washer at half the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just received to replace Model GFWR4800F1WW washer I received this GFW490RSKWW washer as a replacement for a GFWR4800F1WW model, which was delivered to me in April 2015, as I thankfully purchased an extended warranty. My original washer began to have major problems after just 16 months of normal use. In July 2016 the spin cycle would not stop so washer had to be manually stopped for most cycles. Then about a month later, during the spin cycle the drum started wobbling and at high speed the entire washer vibrated a lot making very loud noise and sounding like the drum might fly out of the machine. After multiple repair technicians tried to fix the problem the machine was finally deemed not worth fixing because it needed a new drum and other parts so my warranty company authorized a replacement. I am praying that this newer model of the same washer does not have the same problems and that the first one was just a "lemon". I am dissatisfied with the quality of what is considered a premium washer, sold at a high price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial customer satisfaction high With two days of use my initial customer satisfaction is high. The machine is stable, quiet, easy to use and understand, and appears to so its job well. It plays a happy tune when the cycle is complete rather than an irritating buzzer...nice!
