    Does this washer actually fill up with water?   (9 Answers)

      Answer

      No, this washer does not "FILL" with water....even if you use the deep fill option. The fullest it ever gets is about 3/4 the way up the tub. I have tested it on each setting and it will not fill higher than that. I still recommend the washer. I had to get use to the idea of not putting more clothes in it than it can handle, but once I did, I love it!!! I had a front loader before this and I hated it. My clothes never smelled clean. I have a teenage boy and I could still smell him when I opened the front door. As long as I do not over fill this washer with clothes, everything smells very clean when done. I am guessing the people that say it "FILLS" have never opened it to realize that "FILLING" means only 3/4 full and not anywhere near the top.

      Re “Precise Water Fill”: If I choose another option on the washer Selection Knob (small, large etc.), does this override the computer?   (4 Answers)

      If yes, how high is the level water for each option (small thru super)? My current washer (12 yo Maytag) let’s me select small through ex. Large. The water levels go up significantly for each option. I don’t want or need a company (or govt.) dictating to me how to wash my clothes. I’m guessing that GE “defines” the levels for small through super and that each level would be lower than I’m now using. If this is the case, I’ll be pushing the “Deep Fill” button often on EACH load. If this is indeed the case, that’s crazy!

        Answer

        I hope people are truthful here as all this buying washers and then getting rid of them after they don't clean has cost me a fortune ! Washers are $$$$ and all I want is clean clothes ! However I have already got rid of 4 washer sets and 2 were stack type costly digital top line and 1 free standing , I also had to replace my linens and towels along with lots of clothes . NO washer can clean clothes with ((( 2" ))) of water !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I aint no fool !!! so I make tiny loads with 2-3 gallons of carried sink to washer water for every wash and rinse cycle and this takes a lot of my time as I don't like to babysit my washer ! People... this does not save money but cost me xx $$$ as I make lots of loads when 1-2 would be enough IF the dang washer would fill and then I also have a $$$ soap bill due to all the tiny tiny loads I make for the 2" of water loads !!! ........... :( I love my GE free standing range !!!! After looking at ranges and cooktops , I garden and wanted to can veggies from my garden , I chose GE free standing range and I love it and gone is my $$ glass top that always needed to be cleaned with special cleaner , I love my GE free standing range ! Keep up the good work GE and I am counting on this washer to work... fill up with water ... and give me clean clothes . Thanks and I will do another review of this washer as I am off to find and buy one.

          I've had mine for about 2 months. I wash ALL my clothing, including delicates, in it. I DO use a lingere bag for my most delicate items. I have not had a single problem so far. (I have not tried it on any sweaters yet.) Hope this helps!

            Hello Gina - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and I am happy to help you. This is a wonderful high volume washer. Any size comforter will wash properly in our top-load washers as long as the comforter fits below the balance ring of the washer tub and is not stuffed in the tub tightly. I hope this helps!

            Don't know because you can't see when washing. But they do work because clothes are cleaner and in better shape when taken out of washer.
