GE 5.2 Cu. Ft. 10-Cycle High-Efficiency Top-Loading Washer
I don’t know if mine have problem but don’t clean the clothes.... the water is too little the detergent doesn’t go down and even when the process is done.. I don’t know I’m not satisfied at all with my purchase and I’m trying to call the company to see how they can replace it or fix it or something. Don’t buy it
Hi Susan, thanks so much for your review. We're sorry to hear about the issues that you've had with your washer! The Department of Energy (DOE) sets standards for washer water usage. Over the years, the amount of allowable water usage has been reduced. With washers using less water and energy, you will no longer see a wash basket full of water. Most washers are now programmed with load sensing to adjust water levels based on the cycle and load size, so the amount of water used will vary. - It is not recommended to manually add more water to the washer. Some models have a Deep Fill option which adds additional water to the wash load, regardless of whether you used a manual or a load-sensing fill. You can use this Deep Fil function by pressing the pad once to add 3 gallons of water to the load or you can press and hold the pad for 3 seconds to tell the washer to fill to its max capacity. - For your detergent issue, if you're adding detergent to the Smart Dispense tank, you would need to make sure that the Smart Dispense option is selected on the control panel. If you're wanting to add detergent directly to the wash, you would need to make sure the Smart Dispense option it turned off. We hope that this is helpful! If you have other questions, feel free to send us an email or reach out to us on social media. Stay safe. -Michael@GEA

I typically don't write reviews but this washer is not my favorite. I constantly have to use drain and spin cycle if my loads are more than 1/2 full of the tub. What is the point of having such a large machine if it doesn't function correctly and spin all the water out of the clothes if you can only fill it half full. Very disappointed to say the least and the other thing just to note, if you are a person of 5'3" or less, you will have a very difficult time reaching the clothes like socks, underwear or anything that lays on the bottom unless you uses a step ladder. No fault of the machine but thought you may want to know.
We have only owned this machine for a month, but so far it seems to be doing a good job. Things I like: plenty of wash options, easy to use controls, LED display, deep rinse and extra water fill options, detergent tank and automatic dispenser, glass lid, nice profile. Things I miss that our old machine had: wider opening and not so tall/hard to reach into, lighted basket, soft-closing lid, fabric softener tank. I really do miss the older model, with the exception that this new one offers a deeper fill and rinses the clothes better.
I wish I could do more like 4.5 stars because we are definitely happy with it overall, but theres been some getting used to when coming from a Maytag from the 90's.
Its not hard to use by any means once you start getting used to how each mode functions and things like water levels vs the auto soap dispenser.
One thing to point out is that the DELICATES setting certainly lives up to its name... I think you could damned near was a load of raw eggs and not worry about any cracking lol. I've since started using the ACTIVE WEAR option instead since it has a slightly harder agitation and gets things cleaner.
A pleasure to use. A large (for me) capacity washer able to wash comforters and rugs using less water than our last washer. The washer is deep requiring some stretching to retrieve clothes.
Don't forget to order new mesh hoses (instead of rubber hoses-they don't last as long), the washer does not come with them. Replace your old hoses! If you have an older drain, you may have to order a new drain hose also to hook into the drain.
Tip: Tighten hoses as much by hand, then tighten a quarter turn more with a wrench. I used a sharpie to mark it.
Only have the machine just about a month, but so far I love it. You can load the machine and delay the start or start from your iPhone when out, I haven’t tried it yet. Love the fact I don’t have to put detergent in for every use, it automatically puts it in based on the load size. Only down fall for me is that I need a step stool or gripper to remove clothes because I am only about 5 ft
So far it hasn’t gone off balance like a lot of reviews stated. Now I have to save up for the large load dryer.

A:AnswerHi Bluebell - Thanks for reaching out to us regarding SmartDispense. We can certainly understand your concern. The detergent amount selection on the control panel will default to AUTO when first powering up the washing machine. When AUTO is selected, the amount of detergent needed for each laundry load will automatically be determined based on the size of the load the machine senses. The SmartDispense feature can be disabled by pressing the Detergent Dispense button until OFF is selected. Check to make sure it is On. Also, not all cycles will allow the use of the SmartDispense feature. If the light is illuminated below the Off position and pressing the Detergent Dispense button results in a beeping tone, then Smart Dispense is not allowed for the cycle that has been selected. Detergent will need to be added directly to the wash basket for these cycles. A qualified GE service technician may be required for an accurate diagnosis. To schedule service online, visit us at GEAppliances.com or call 1.800.GE.CARES (800.432.2737). Please have your serial number and your model number available when calling for service. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Keep in touch! Sue
A:AnswerHi Historian, thanks so much for your question! We'd be happy to help with this! We found the following information on page 5 of your Owner's Manual. It deals with the automatic draining sequence which you can read here: -The washer will automatically drain any time the lid is left open for more than 15 minutes and water is present. -The washer will automatically drain if left in a paused state with the lid closed for more than 24 hours and water is present. -The washer will automatically drain after dispensing water in Water Station mode after the cycle knob has been
turned to another cycle. - There is also an Auto Soak feature that you can use. This option begins with a brief agitation, soaks for a specified period of time, then moves through the rest of the cycle
automatically. Repeated pressing of the Soak button will scroll through 15 minute, 30 minute, 1 hour and 2 hour selections and then return back to 0 soak minutes. We hope that this helps! Stay safe. -Michael@GEA
