GE Profile Front Loader Washer WPDH8800J0WW
The GE Profile WPDH8800 is a high-end 27” front load washer that features a 4.2 cu ft. total load capacity. Therefore it can handle bigger loads than the average washing machines.
One of its promising features is the built-in SmartDispense Technology, wherein a built-in pedestal can hold up to six months worth of laundry detergent, powder or liquid, as well as bleach, fabric softener, and other fabric chemical substitutes.
The GE WPDH8800 also features the multiple wash cycle system, the H2ition Wash System, the Gold Medal Performance 1,300 rpm spin speed, and ADA Certification, making GE WPDH8800 a good option for consumers who want to be satisfied with their laundry washer. It comes in three colors: white, champagne, and vermilion red. It seems to be a neat package for laundry cleaning.
But with all its advanced features comes the hefty price tag.
• less worry on putting too much detergent into the clothes
• skinny and tall for easy storage
• washes larger loads at one time
• excellent washer with its easy front-loading feature
• has water saver feature
• has delay start setting
• higher initial cash-out
• more costly maintenance
The GE Profile WPDH8800 washing machine offers additional features that all translate to big savings. It includes a durable stainless steel wash basket, a true grip front door handle, and a see-through glass front panel window.
It offers numerous choices for loads such as cotton/normal, easy care, active wear, delicates, hand wash, speed wash, rinse, and spin. The delay start program allows for longer soaking time and enables users to take charge of how and when they want to do their laundry. Also, this kind of washing machine comes bundled with a limited 1 year manufacturer's parts and labor warranty.
Here are the key features of the WPDH8800 to help you choose the perfect washing machine for your home:
This washing machine comes with a built-in laundry detergent storage pedestal that automatically dispenses the right amount of detergent at the right time, thereby allowing the user to leave the laundry area for a long time without worrying about the laundry. It is built-in, unlike the other models where the consumer still has to buy the pedestal separately.
Integrated Stain Inspector System
This innovation from GE is very promising. GE claims it is the best stain removal system ever formulated in the industry of washing
machines, with the WPDH8800’s presets for over 40 different types of cloth stains.
Specialty Wash Cycles
This includes five separate wash and rinse temperatures and eight different wash and spin speed combinations for special fabric pieces that need gentle washing.
CleanSpeak Communication System
This feature works by communicating directly with the dryer, which automatically presets the correct dry cycles. This, of course, results in maximum clothing protection and less time spent doing the laundry.
H2ition Technology Wash System
This automatically detects the exact load size and dispenses the right amount of water needed at the lowest temperature, which saves on time and energy.
There are so many great things about WPDH8800 that will surely prompt a consumer to buy one. First, it has a built-in SmartDispense pedestal that hides an amazing secret--the technology that stores and automatically dispenses detergent and fabric softener based on the detected load size, the dirt level, and water texture and fabric or cycle type.
Also, the WPDH8800 features the most promising stain removal system, which treats 40 different kinds of stains and fabric types. Consumers also like how this washer automatically senses the load and adds just the right amount of water to each load to help save time and money. The reversing wash cycle gently works while providing excellent cleaning. To top these all, the 4.2 cu. ft. king-size capacity tub allows up to 50 adult shirts or 24 full-size towels, or 17 pairs of jeans, or even a king-size comforter to fit in.
Equally important is the CleanSpeak communication between the washer and dryer, which automatically presets the correct dry cycles to save time.
There are not that many disadvantages in using the GE Profile WPDH8800 other than its cost, which is way higher than the conventional top-load washing machines.
Also, the cost of maintenance seems costly for consumers. Ordinary consumers are always thinking of the initial cash-out when purchasing their washing machines.
Putting together the advantages and disadvantages of the GE WPDH8800, one would say that the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. The initial investment to purchase it will eventually be recovered through savings from the future cuts on utility costs, such as water and energy bills, as well as cuts on the shopping expenses for clothes.
And because it’s a very durable and sturdy washer, one need not worry so much about maintenance costs.More GE Washer ReviewsGE Washing Machines Main Page
