GE GFWS3505LMS Metallic Silver Frontload Washer 4.9 cu. ft.

Energy Star Steam Refresh

The GFWS3505LMS is a front load washer manufactured by GE. This metallic silver machine contains an Adaptive Vibration Control (AVC) mechanism that reduces the vibrations and noise made by the machine when it is in use. Thus, you can put it anywhere, as you are assured that your peace won’t be bothered by mechanical noises while doing laundry. It is also has a built-in eWash option that uses cold instead of lukewarm or hot water when doing the laundry, thus lessening energy requirements to operate the machine. Despite using cold water, these cycles still produce thoroughly washed and cleaned laundry items, though.

Washer Highlights

Interior Features

  • There are two steam action mechanisms included in this washer, the Steam Refresh and Steam Assist. With Steam Assist, heavily soiled items will be thoroughly cleaned as the steam deeply penetrates hard to remove stains to dissolve them. Meanwhile, the Steam Refresh aids in making items smell cleaner and look fresher with the absence of hot smells and crinkles on finished items.

  • Among the 12 cycles that are built-in the machine that can be used to clean heavily soiled items is the stain wash cycle. This special cycle has the capacity to thoroughly clean items by erasing stains that are difficult to remove.

    Exterior Features

  • The door of this washer is located in the front face, equipped with a see-thru glass. This allows you to have a look of the machine’s interior even if it is in a middle of a cycle. Other out of date machines would require you to open the door to see what’s inside the washer, and if it is in use, the machine would stop and only resume once you close the door. Having the see-thru glass gets rid of this hassle.

  • The circular frame of the see-thru glass window as well as the handle is made of dark chrome material that can be easily maintained and does not retain smudges, fingerprints and other dirt. The handle has a trademark TrueGrip feature that prevents slipping even if you handle the door with wet or slippery hands.

  • There is also a Child Lock feature that prevents the washer’s door from being accidentally opened by children, especially when the machine is in use.
