GE WJRE5500GWW Washer Pros

King Size

Consumers love the king size basket. Not only can you wash the biggest loads then ever before, the basket is stainless steel so it is durable and you don’t have to worry about durable items scratching and tearing it up.

You can be assured the basket will last for the lifetime of the machine. You can also be rest assured that you don’t have to go to a laundry mat or pay for a dry cleaner any more to wash your comforters or blankets.

The basket is so big it will fit your king size comforter. This is a big convenience and it will save you money.

Hydrowave System

People also love the Hydrowave system that comes with this top load washer.

The washer has the ability to match the type of wash and the different speeds it will use with the wash based on the different types of clothing you specify are in the wash.

The longer and slower washes are perfect for the extra delicate items you need to wash. However, you can run the fast wash when you have durable items you are washing.

Wash Cycles

Consumers are also raving about the 18 different wash cycles for you to choose from.

This is almost unheard of for many customers because most people are used to the conventional models that only give you two or three options to wash your clothes with.

There is a cycle for every type of clothing and every wash need you could possibly have. You will be amazed when you wash the different types of clothes and you see how each of the different cycles wash your clothes in its own way.

All you have to do is select the cycle and let the washer do the rest. No other washer on the market has this many wash cycles that can assure your clothes get exactly what they need.

Wash and Rinse

In addition to the different cycles you can choose from, you can also select from four wash and rinse temperatures. If you want to specify the rinse temperatures then you can.

The washer will clean your clothing at the exact temperature to get dirt and grime out of them the best and to ensure that your clothes don’t go through any unnecessary wear and tear that they shouldn’t.

If you want to then you can specify the wash and rinse temperatures for your clothes. Consumers love to be able to select the temperatures.

They also love the fact that the cold temperature is not really as cold as it might be outside if it is winter time. The washer adjusts the water temperatures appropriately.

Water Levels

You can also choose from different water levels to ensure you are conserving the most amount of water you can be at all times.

You can save a lot on water and energy bills when you run the water levels at the same level as the clothing in the washer. You will save already on your water bill because you will be washing less loads of laundry with your oversized washer.


One consumer specifically noted that they loved this machine because it didn’t’ make a large racket like most other machines did. It actually makes a swishing sound that is rather peaceful and the customer said they enjoy it.

Clothes seem to get extraordinarily clean and they are very happy with this unit.

GE WJRE5500GWW Washer Cons

One customer wasn’t very pleased with this top load washer. She stated that when she used the bleach dispenser it dropped the bleach into the wash basket and not between the basket and the tank like it should.

This problem caused bleach to get all over her clothes. Unfortunately, this feature didn’t seem to be so much of a feature to the consumer and they recommend against purchasing this washing machine.

A few of the consumers mentioned that the spinning was so fast and tight that they were almost dry when they came out saving them on their energy for the dryer.

However, the problem with the spinning is that they had some clothes ripped, torn, and damaged due to the intensity of the spinning.

They also mentioned that the clothes were spinned so tight that they were incredibly wrinkled. So if you have items you won’t put in the dryer but hang up then you don’t want to run the fast spin cycle.

The GE WJRE5500GWW washer top load is an excellent machine and has many benefits if you decide to purchase it.

Many consumers are very pleased with the features while other customers have experienced problems with some of the benefits.
