It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty.

Works just fine

7/6/2018

I have had this washer for 2 months. Clothes get clean with lots of choices for programs. It is a bit noisy more than my last by far but I like to think thats because its working hard. : I would suggest always choosing extra spin because sometimes clothes are too wet still at the end of the cycle.

we did a lot of online and in-store research I mean a lot before purchasing this washer. so far we absolutely love it. we thought we would only be using one cycle as we did with our old 25 year old washer. ha so far we have used probably 6 cycles. and weve only had it for a week. no problems on any cycle. our clothes are cleaner we have tried the deep fill option and deep rinse option and they both work fine. the engineers who designed this machine did a great job. I love the glass lid so I can see whats going on inside. GE offers an excellent website for information.

My mother is the one who bout this washer but we still feel the same way about it. When I first saw I was shocked becuasei dont realise she was planning on purchasing a new washer I shouldve known though because the old one rattled so much and made so many crunching sounds. This washer may look complex at first it was for me but once you understand all of the buttons and stuff it really is amazing. The only negative thing I have to say about is that I was a little disappointed that she didnt get the matching dryer but our dryer is perfectly fine so it makes sense :

Restrictions equal loss of control

4/20/2018

Owned for approx 6 to 7 months. Replaces first one that lasted only 3 weeks due to electronic panel failure. This one functions however due to built in energy and environmental restrictions you loose out on control of: 1. Water level. It will only fill between a third and half full. I have to wash on bulky load at all times in order to get enough water to have clean laundry 2. Laundry size. Forget about large loads. Those days are gone. No mater the size of the tub. So get used to doing laundry in small to med loads. 3. Time. These size loads on bulky wash can take anywhere from 34 mins to 97 mins depending on your selection of cleaning features. Other than these faults I find that I dont hate the washer. It:s a beautiful washer with a bevy of features. which unfortunately are hindered by the a fore mentioned restrictions. Clothing come out very clean when using work arounds I have found through trial error. Best Feature: It has an agitator. Worse Feature: Sensing and Balancing. Would I purchase again? Probably not.

Lots of features

4/16/2018

We bought this a few weeks ago. Still learning all the settings but so far its amazing. Not sure if we like the minimal water used but theyre all like that now. Were used to a 20 year old machine that soaked everything everytime. Clothes seem to be fine cleaning is good and they come out practically dry in the end. Still learning but so far love the machine. We got this machine because reviews were good and more importantly you can get this model with the agitator. So glad I did it doesnt beat up your clothes so dont believe that from salesman or online reviewers. If you like to know your clothes are getting moved around and scrubbed then get this feature. Cleans your clothes better than relying on clothes scrubbing each other clean.

Very Pleased

4/15/2018

I bought a brand new washing machine- lets call it machine B- that was so horrible I bought another new one less than a year later. And oh my goodness I forgot how simple laundry could be. For a comparison a small load because thats all machine B could handle of heavy soiled laundry took two to three cycles to get clean. No cycle on that machine was under an hour so I spent a lot of time doing laundry. As I stated it could only handle a small load or it would get out of balance and throw an error code canceling the cycle. With this GE I can be less picky on sorting and actually fill the machine to capacity and wouldnt you know it the clothes come out clean after one 45 minute cycle. If it is unbalanced it at least attempts to balance though it doesnt always work correctly and the load will be wetter than average. I was compelled to write this review after last night. My husband returned home from work at a rock quarry very dirty business. I tossed his very dirty clothes in and completely forgot detergent. I am proud to say it actually did a fairy good job. I did use the speed wash with detergent just to be safe. I couldnt give it five stars because there are a few things I would like to see different but those are more personal preferences than problems/complaints. Common complaints I hear are cycle times I havent found them to be horrible. Id say average for an HE machine. Lack of water that is what the deep fill option is for and people are using it incorrectly or not understanding how to operate the machine. The manual could be a little more clear. Some explanations are vague and my questions are not answered in it. Ive had this GE about a month and normally I like to use things a bit longer before reviewing. So GE dont let me down continue to be awesome.

I love the different cycles and Im still trying to figure them all out referencing the manual for more info. I did have to run a tennis shoe load and there really wasnt a cycle for shoes so I had to use best guess and ran them on delicate. I had to get used to seeing the water level so low but thats a part of the HE feature. Not all cycles are editable temp spin time etc. Would love a create your own cycle that can be saved/programmed
