      Just had this washer installed and have run two loads. Much quieter than I thought it would be.

        Answer

        Hi ShouldIBuyIt- This is Sue at GE Appliances. Thanks for getting back to us! GTW460ASJWW has a DUAL-ACTION AGITATOR- Powerful reversing wash action rotates your laundry for a thorough clean every time and provides better circulation and turnover of clothes. The top half operates independent of the bottom half to help drive the clothes down into the water. Play Video: https://www.youtube.com/embed/tRtHk5hk8v4?rel=0 - GTW330ASKWW has a HEAVY-DUTY AGITATOR- Powerful wash action rotates your laundry for a thorough clean every time. Play Video: https://www.youtube.com/embed/EUye10ayYnU?rel=0 - Also, both models feature 700 RPM Spin Speed. It is important to make sure the washer is placed on a level floor and the leveling legs are properly adjusted. Also, an unbalanced load can cause more vibration. Any size comforter will wash properly in our washers as long as the comforter fits below the balance ring of the washer tub and is not stuffed in the tub tightly. You may want to consider the larger 4.2 capacity since it also features Deep Fill option. You cannot add additional water to the wash cycle on model GTW330ASKWW since it does not have Deep Fill option. Selecting Deep Rinse will fill the basket with water for the rinse cycle only (not the wash cycle) to ensure clothes are rinsed of soap residue and fabric softener. GTW460ASJWW was introduced in September of 2015 and GTW330ASKWW was introduced in April of 2016. Top-loading and front-loading GE Appliance washers with the HE label are defined as washers that use low-water levels in wash and rinse cycles. Note: The HE label does not mean energy efficient. Only washers that have earned the ENERGY STAR rating are independently certified to save energy. Some GE Appliance washer models have the "HE" label on the control panel and other models do not. However, GE Appliances recommends HE (High Efficiency) detergent be used in all of our washers (past and present models) for optimum wash performance. HE detergent works best with the lower water levels used in all modern washing machines and cleans just as well as standard detergents regardless of the machine type or age. We hope this is helpful!

        Answer

        Hi Laura- This is Sue at GE Appliances. We are happy to provide assistance. To add items after the washer cycle has started, press Pause if the lid is locked. Pressing Pause will unlock the lid (if locked at that time), pause the cycle and the Pause indicator light will blink. To continue the cycle, press Start again. If machine is paused more than 24 hours, the cycle will be cancelled. Thanks for checking with us!
