    do NOT buy
    by: Anonymous

    Do NOT buy, this product, it breaks down after only 4 months of use! Had repairman here once aready & it still is not rinsing the soap out or spinning all the water out. It is still under GE's warranty, as far as I'm concerned they should replace it with a different model.Instead what do I get, I get to wait another two days for the repairman to come back.What a piece of junk! Save yourself the trouble & buy a different model, better yet, a different brand!

    Worst junk ever
    by: Anonymous

    The only cure for this machine is a handgrenade, but that would be a waste of good gunpowder! Never again Mr. GE. This machine isn't worth the room it takes up.

    Washing machine that wastes energy
    by: Anonymous

    Wastes water - must re-wash clothes several times to get rid of the lint or wash 3 small items to get them semi wet; this machine is good to look at but is not designed for real washing.

    It helps if you put the soap in before the clothes.I put soap in afterwards the first time and i had to do a second rinse but it came out.

    by: Heidi

    This model does not even deserve one star. The clothes come out with streaks on all over the darks!! There is not enough water coming in this machine, to wash the clothes...

    leaves soapy residue
    by: Anonymous

    I have had this machine for 6 months with third service call scheduled next week. It does not clean clothes, leaves a soapy/linty residue on clothes. Have had to re-wash clothes several times to get it to rinse off. Stay away from this machine.

    would recommed to anyone
    by: Sherry

    I don't know where all these bad comments come from, I have had mine for 6 months and have never had one single problem with it. It washes my clothes well, they do not come out in knots, and mine has not been junk at all. My daughter has one just like it as well and has had no trouble at all with hers either, it has been 100% better than the last 2 sets of front load washers that I have had, now they were terrible and stunk real bad, but this washer has been really good to me

    Poor performance
    by: NJ mom

    Water saving feature without a lint filter leaves clothes coming out with lint all over. Clothes become intertwined and could rip/tear or become damaged in some other way.
