    Washer OK, dryer frustrates me

    Posted

    The reason I purchased this set was because my much loved Maytag of many years finally died and I needed to replace it with a set that would fit my space and this product was the only one I could find at the time (March, 2018). First the positive: Washer works fine except it is much slower than what I am used to and the final spin extracts water so much that it often leaves clothing crimped with deep wrinkles. The negative: The dryer works overall satisfactorily with the drying but I am very frustrated with the dryer's lint trap which is very poorly designed. First, It does not catch all of the lint (and I clean the lint trap each time) and when you open the dryer door, bits of lint always fly out into the air. Then, when you slide out the lint trap panel to empty it, more lint flies out into the air and it does not catch all the lint in the trap. Bits of lint remain inside the lint bin and around the outside of the trap. VERY FRUSTRATING! The second thing I don't like is there is no buzzer or sound alarm letting you know when the drying is finished. How ridiculous is that?! As a result, I often go to check on it and find the clothing has been sitting for quite awhile, requiring a "dewrinkle". How energy efficient is that?! Would I recommend this system? Only if you can find nothing else to fit your space.

    This laundry center is great! I was hesitant about purchasing due to reviews about noise during the spin cycle, but I do not find that it makes any excessively loud noise. Delivery and installation was quick and done professionally... my laundry center was delivered with a small dent in the lower bottom portion of the washer, but I was offered a small compensation in the form of a gift card and/or the option of replacing it with a new one. My only complaint is that I am not able to wash or dry a comforter - its just too small for that.. but towels, sheets, blankets, etc. have all been fine.

    Easy purchase/delivery from BestBuy but quality...

    The unit made a LOT of noise when set up that we didn't notice until after the Best Buy installers left. We contacted GE support and they sent someone out. If you lightly placed your hand on the side of the dryer when it was on - the noise stopped. It was easy to show the GE repair person what was wrong. They tried to fix it but warned us it may not last. The fix only lasted a week so we called again. Again they came out and felt more confident about their repair - been a couple months and so far so good. But since quality wasn't up to what you & I expect I only give it two stars.

    The dryer stopped working only 2 months after purchase. It's past it's return date, so I'm stuck with this lemon. I have a 2 adult/1 child household, so it's not like I'm doing large amounts of laundry, but the thermal fuse blew on it. I've had to take 2 days off work to sit and wait for a technician to repair it. I have little hope that this won't happen again given that it happened so quickly after purchase.

    This machine cleans very well leaving my clothes smelling much fresher than they did with my front loader. The dryer is also fast and dries thoroughly so that I don't discover damp clothes hours later. It holds much more than you would think for the size. We have 4 kids so I am constantly running it, and it has worked very well for us thus far. The only negative I can think of is the number of options/features. It is non "fancy" but I think if you are looking for a solid washer and dryer that gets the job done, this one is a great choice.

    We are so happy to get this washer dryer. Our old one broke and the new one is excellent. granted the first one we had delivered came damaged and the installers damaged it further. Best Buy sent a replacement and the 2nd installers did a great job installing it carefully. the GE Spacemaker Washer Dryer works great and washes the clothes extremely well and dries without any wrinkles. more washing machine capacity (2/3 cubic ft compared to 1.5 in our old machine) with only a 1/4" of additional width.

    I would probably recommend that you find a better product with better ratings. Some issues: 1- Doesn't drain and spin water out of clothes, you have to select the drain and spin 2-3 times. 2- does not disperse bleach, and you will have bleach stains all over your clothes at times. 3- leaves behind a soap residue for dark clothes. You will have to wash them 2-3 times to get them residue free even if you use less soap.

    Great delivery service and set up. The washer dryer fit in our closet perfectly. The washer gets really dirty clothes very clean in a single wash. The dryer is quiet, but the washer is noisy, even with a closed closet door. I would prefer a warm water rinse which removes soap better, but the washer only has cold rinse options. It does also for a second or "deep" rinse which I select. Overall, happy with my purchase so far and thought the product was a good deal.

    This unit replaced a 20 year old GE that was still working but I wanted new, upgraded features like more drying options and a larger wash tub. This unit has both! Although I almost have to climb in the tub to remove the clothes, it holds almost as much as the full size. The clothes come out of the dryer soft and not over dry. The washer sounds a bit strange but it is a nice machine.

    I live in a condo that has a very small area for a washer and dryer. After reviewing what would be available I chose the GE Spacemaker and so happy that I did. I am able to wash a kingsize blanket and also a set of kingsize sheets. Also there is room for bath rugs. The clothes come out very clean and the cycles are quite quick. This is a wonderful choice for a condo.

    This compact unit offers a lot for the little space it consumes. The dryer will handle 3 pairs of jeans and a few shirts in 45 minutes, but the washer is incredibly loud while washing. Double checked to be sure the machine was properly leveled and it is. Later found out this is a common issue. Overall pretty happy with it.

    Got this stacker combo as a replacement for the old model and so far I love it - it's bigger inside the washer and dryer, very quiet, the insides are steel like professional machines and they perform excellent cleaning and drying every load - I definitely recommend for anyone looking for a great stacker combo

    I had a hard time finding a stackable washer/dryer, but this one has turned out to be a good option so far. The washer capacity is bigger than I originally thought. There were some hiccups with delivery/set-up, but it was eventually resolved and the washer/dryer has been performing well thus far.

    One of the few models on the market that fits in a small, closet-size space. Setting for "bulky load" allows enough water to wash & rinse clothes properly. Otherwise "water saving" modes barely put in enough water to wet the clothes!

    We bought this washer/dryer combo for our townhouse which has a very narrow opening for laundry. This fit perfectly and does a good job, especially for the price. Obviously you can't fit giant loads of laundry in this one, but it is good for one or two people's laundry.

    Bought this to replace an old stack washer-dryer unit in a small utility closet in my condo. Capacity of both washer and dryer much larger than my old machine. Quieter, faster, more options, water and electricity saving features.

    W/D is bigger than my last so I am loving that I can wash more in one shot. The dryer is drying towels in half the time my old one did! Only have had it a couple months but happy so far.

    I thought I reviewed this one already but I love this unit! It's much more quiet than my previous one and I love that it can chose the load size automatically. The dryer is also much quicker and senses when the clothes are dry.

    Great value and saves space. We needed to replace a unit that was too tight in the space so this fits perfectly. 4 tenants use the washer/dryer and have no problems with it.
