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.

I have read many reviews of this product and most common repair is the ball bearing. Is this something that is defective in GE or is it just common wear and tear?
Asked by: Potential
Yes it’s a defect, this machine could potentially cause harm. I was lucky it stayed within the housing. It exploded during a spin cycle.

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 White Front Loading Washing Machine with RightHeight Design, ENERGY STAR is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 219.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Exactly the Right Height Washer worked very well for a few months. Then the water stopped flowing into the soap dispenser. Board needed to repair on back order for 4 months. Must add detergent manually with the clothes and unplug after each use.

Within the 15th month, the bearing inside the drum broke. Exploded is a better term, so much so that the bearings the size of large gum balls dented the metal housing. Repair man came out and said it would cost 900 in parts and labor. We both agreed it wasn’t worth it. GE customer care offered a discount on a reorder of 200.00 off. Problem was @ 1599 each washer and dryer plus tax . It’s not worth the risk. GE appliances is no longer an America Brand. It’s owned by Haier a Chinese company,headquartered in China.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from First load moving into new house floods floor First load moving into new house floods floor. I’m hoping I did not make a mistake and this is the only thing that goes wrong with this product! We have it delivered and installed into our brand new house and unpacking everything I needed to do many loads of laundry but unfortunately there was a rubber hose that was inside Washer from factory split at the seam and upon rinsing flooded my entire brand new hard wood floor of the laundry room!! Needless to say I have to spend a day at a laundromat and I only have a weekend to get everything done so The fact it came defective from the factory really wasted and caused a lot of time management problems with moving from one state to another !! We are not a happy customer right now. Thanks for the appliance store we bought it from are very good people they came right out they diagnosed what happened and now they’re waiting for the factory to send a new part. So I have not even gotten through one load with this washer and it’s already been repaired so basically I bought a used washer !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible!!! I have always trusted this brand, so my husband & I decided to upgrade my previous top load to this front load about 3-years ago with a 5-year warranty. The washer have troubles since the 1st year. First, it started with water not draining & leaving the clothes very wet then the 1-hr turn into a 3-hr wash. We called the warranty center & they came multiple times then finally they taught my husband how to fix the issue himself when the washer jammed. Now it eats our socks & under garments & make holes in our clothes, but we CANNOT afford another washer since we have 2-kids in college. So sad & scare of what the washer will do every time I have to wash the clothes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features, great buy! So huge. So efficient. And so many features. Just what I wanted. Only thing I don't like is the seal of the door stays wet, as well as the container to add liquid washing detergent. But other than that I'm happy with the purchase for the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good features I bought this GE washer a few months ago to replace the exact same model. I bought my previous washer less than five years ago and the drum broke I was very disappointed I paid so much money and it was American made and it didn’t last very long. I replaced it with the same model because I wanted to match my dryer. I hope my replacement will last longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Options, capacity and ease !!! I was originally inclined to purchase a top-loader, but was attracted to the ease of accessing the entire inside capacity of this machine. (Although I'm tall, it's hard to reach over the top and get to the bottom of the interior of top loaders.) The elevation is perfect, since the overall height for not interfere with wall-mounted cabinets.
