GE GFWH2405LMV Vermilion Red Frontload Washer 4.9 cu. ft.

Energy Star eWash Option

There is more to the GFWH2405LMV than its unique and rich vermilion red exterior. It also has features to make laundry easier and convenient for you. Included in this model is an eWash option, which saves you on energy by using cold water in some cycles while still assuring a thorough clean. For users who would like to use hot water, the machine has a built-in HydroHeater with sanitization, which raises the temperature of water to be used in the wash cycles. Hotter water is said to aid in producing brighter whites and making sure that common bacteria are removed.

Washer Highlights

Interior Features

  • the stain wash cycle, a special cycle intended for heavily soiled items. This cycle works on hard to remove stains and gives you thoroughly clean laundry. Also included in this model is the eWash option, another energy saver feature. EWash uses cold water in select cycles for less energy use (no need for the washer to heat water anymore) but with consistently clean results.

  • The Adaptive Vibration Control or AVC feature of the machine reduces the vibration and sound made by the washer as the mechanism adapts and optimizes the machine’s spin patterns. What you get is a more stable and quiet machine that produces less shakes and noise that can disturb your household.

    Exterior Features

  • The door style of the machine contains a circular see-thru glass window which allows you to look inside the machine to know what’s going on even if it is in use. For some traditional household washers, you would need to open the machine to see what’s inside, which would cause the machine to stop.

  • The handle, is made of dark chrome material, which blends beautifully with the rich vermilion color of the washer exterior. Moreover, the dark chrome material is easy to clean and does not retain stains and fingerprints. The handle is also designed with TrueGrip technology which resists slipping and allows you a stable grip when loading or unloading the washer.
