Great Basic Washer
Posted by: SierrainTexas from: Mineral Wells, TX on
I've owned this washer for over a month now, and I really enjoy using it. I can choose exactly how much water I want to use for each load, and the water temperature, and the length of the cycle. My clothes come out nice and clean, nothing damaged or wound up in knots or anything, just a great basic washer. And really quiet. And, here's an example of how well it cleans: I got a bad stain on the knee of my favorite capri pants before I had this washer. At that time I was using a HE (high efficiency washer), and I forgot to pretreat the stain. It went through that HE washer twice and the stain was still there, so I thought it was, unfortunately, a permanent stain.. However -- after just one time in this new GE washer, the stain was completely gone!!
My only regret is, this washer doesn't have a delicate cycle. So I went to wal-mart and got a couple of those mesh laundry bags you put delicates in before they go into the washer. Works for me. :)

Great washer, easy to use
Posted by: bluenote2112 from: North Branch on
I just love this maching! Its your old fashion machine with modern touches added to it. I previously bought a non agitator one. It was aweful since you had to position clothes just so since it conserves water. Lid locked once machine starts and if you want to add a piece of clothing you had to wait forever for machine to unclock. I was so unhappy. I called Best Buy and customer service informed me I can return the washer within 30 days no question asked. Wow! I returned it and bought this machine! So easy to use. I love it! Thank you Best Buy!! Happy customer

Great buy for the money!
Posted by: Tony8807 from: NJ on
I did a ton of investigation before I bought this. I just need a basic washing machine without all the bells and whistles and this really fits the bill. It has mechanical controls which I like because it is less likely to break.
I was extremely pleased by how silent this is.I had to close the door to the room next to my 20 year old washing machine because it was so loud. Now I can leave the door wide open and I am not even sure if it is still working!! It is great when it is hot out because closing the door makes it hot in the room.
The tub is HUGE compared to my previous one! Now, I am always on various small levels. My past machine only had 3 water levels, small, medium and large. This has them and extra large and super with TEN gradations between each level! It also doesn't vibrate. I specifically chose this one because the tub has a lot of room to move that will absorb the clothes rotating.
It washes all the clothes and wrings out the water from them well. I have only had it for a few weeks. So, I can't tell you about the reliability.

This washer beats the "HE" washers hands down!
Posted by: Drivenmecrazy from: Fountain Valley, Ca on
2 HE-washers have quit on me in the past 5 years. I wasted about $2500.00 !
The washer tub holes had gotten plugged up with what appeared to be concrete. Yes, I did use regular detergent. Hard to break old habits. soon, my clothes were covered with a film, they didn't breathe, and did not smell clean.
I have only had this washer for a week. My clothes smell great. My son says his t-shirts breathe and he is not as hot while building stair-sets at a construction site. His rash is gone.
I love love love this huge washer!!!!

LOVE IT!!!! Has all the features we need to wash!
Posted by: BBChris from: IL on
This machine had ALL of the features we needed to wash! Best of all... it can wash our King comforter w/o shaking the whole Laundry Room! Likewise, it can hold very large loads - I use to have to make MANY smaller loads just to get the "blue load" clean. So, it saves me time/money too. So far, it gets all of the clothes clean - no issues w/ stains not coming out, etc. Very happy w/ this purchase! I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

After Two Months
Posted by: valor1980 from: Indianapolis, In on
Ok so looks like we have a little problem with this washer. The Agitator has a 3-4 inch gap from bottom of wash tub. So I was doing a load of sheets and one of the sheets ended up filling that space under Agitator
and removed the agitator from the bottom of wash tank. (see Pic.)

We bought this machine because it had analog features and the option to control our own water levels. We also liked that it was assembled in the USA. We are a budget conscious family with 3 kids and we needed low-tech easy maintenance. It was delivered last Sunday 6/24 by Best Buy and now, Friday 6/29 I have encountered a major issue that requires a service call from GE already. I have washed a total of maybe 6-8 loads thus far carefully following the directions in the manual. Today my child's twin fitted sheet got sucked under the agitator and is stuck. According to the GE website, this agitator can't be removed at home by the consumer and requires a technician. I am super dissapointed that for 500 bucks we got a machine that cannot even launder fitted sheets. Also the matching dryer seems to run very hot and the sensor never shuts off the dryer when clothes are dry. Best Buy did offer me an exchange because it was a very recent purchase and I don't see any other choice. I can't call a serviceman every time I have to wash my bedding!

Just received this washer yesterday & I believe it is a great washer for the price. Oh, & it arrived with a dent, so we are getting a 25$ Gift card per request. Thanks Best Buy.
The only reason I gave this product a 4 is because I wish it would splash & aggitate a little more, but I dont know if that really matters.
Will update after further use.

Sad it has to go back
Posted by: gcrew from: Charlottesville VA on
I'm not one to comment but it needs to be reiterated... This washer will eat your clothes.
First week it was the tie ribbon on my daughters shirt. It was washed by our old washer and never got sucked in so I wasn't concerned or it wasn't on my radar to not wash. all the same I figured it was my stupid fault and pulled it out. It was sucked up under the agitator and wrapped around a number of times. The next couple of washes the machine made some popping but stopped and machine seemed to be working fine... Yesterday washing my husbands scrubs it sucked up one of the ties and tore it off. I had to pull it out again and the machine seems to be working okay. But I can't keep sacrificing our clothes hoping they will come out in one piece or that the machine doesn't break. grrr
Have has less than 2m and will start the return process today.
