GE Model#: WBSR3140GWW
Our washing machine is made by GE. The qualifications we were looking for in picking out our washing machine were first, that it was cheap, and second, that it washed large loads of clothes. This model fit those specifications perfectly. It is super easy to use, so yes, even your kids can wash their own clothes. It has three temperature settings and three wash load sizes, and so many ways to wash your clothes that I do not even use them all. You can even fill up the machine with all different colored clothes and set the temperature to cold and nothing will fade onto anything else!
That is super helpful when you do not have the time to separate clothes by color. Throw in jeans with t-shirts with underwear with socks and everything always comes out perfectly. It still yet gets out the tough stains too even without pre-treating when you use the hot setting; just make sure you do separate your colors when using warm or hot settings.
This model also has the plastic washtub in it so it is easy to clean if you need to clean it. You can also pour in your fabric softener in a separate place and it will dispense it whenever it is time to. It is just an all-around great washing machine.
