    Waste of Money!
    by: A Suckered Consumer

    This washer is by far, the worst purchase I have ever made! I spent $1500 on this piece of crap figuring that it was a quality washer, well I was wrong. I purchased the washer in 2009 and has had problems with it from the first few weeks. It takes 2-3 hours to wash a load of clothes that usually needs re-washed or re-rinsed and spun. 70% of the time my loads of laundry are soaking wet when the cycle has completed and I have to re-rinse and spin. If you do not leave the door open to air out in between loads you will begin to get a moldy/musty smell, which is in turn, a hazard to anyone who has small children who may climb into the unit. In addition to that, my spin cycle has not worked properly since I purchased the unit. GE has been to my house on 3 seperate occasions and replaced the computer boards, the door lock, and reset the computer all for a charge of $130. Even after the 3 visits my washer still has the same consistant problem. They are now offering to fix it a 4th time or give me a discount to purchase another piece of crap. Why should a customer have to fork-out additional money due to a manufacturing mistake and take off 3 days of work to be home for service repairs! It's safe to safe that I will never buy another GE product for the rest of my life! GE doesn't care about their customers and doesn't stand behind their products! Please, do yourself a favor and DO NOT PURCHASE this washer!

    GE Front Load Washer
    by: Anonymous

    Biggest piece of crap on the market. You would thnk a company like GE could make a product that would not beak down after a month of use. Takes 2 hours to wash cloths and when the spin cycle is done the closes are still soaked. Big surprice, I work for GE and if they are not putting PCB's in the Hudson river they are ripping off the general public with their crappy products and bullshit slogans.
    GE Eco Imagination by eye. How is it that 2 hours of electricity and water for one load of laundry is good for the environment?

    Fair washer
    by: cheezheadgal

    I bought both the washer and dryer June 2010 to stack them, and the company sent the wrong stack kit. However, I bought both on the GE website for around $700, about 50% off the normal price.

    Pros: The color is fantastic! These appliances look beautiful and fit nicely stacked in the corner of my breezeway, freeing up a lot of space. They are normal sized units, and are not small like I thought they might be when I ordered them. I love all the various settings that accompany the washer: bed and bath, pet bedding, etc. The dryer works well with no real problems that I have noticed.

    Cons: I have had problems with my washer leaking small amounts of water (dripping) out from the door onto the floor during cycles. It doesn't happen all the time, just once in awhile. I also have noticed mold accumulation on the door and the rubber part, which I try to clean regularly, and also keep the door open after a wash, to air dry it out.The colors cycle and the whites cycle are nice to have, however, they take forever. WHen it's programmed on that cycle, it says for instance, 1:09 for whites, meaning 1 hour and 9 minutes. Well, I thought that meant from start to finish. No, it means just for the wash cycle, not including rinse, spin, and drain. They all add time, so for one load of whites, it will take about 2 hours. Which I find insane, when you try to do a couple loads on a Saturday. Lately, I have found that the water doesn't all drain out, and sometimes soap is still left in the basin. After 2 hours of the washer running for one load, I then have to go back and put it on either rinse and spin, or drain and spin to get the excess out. It's rather aggravating especially when you have your arms full with another load ready to put in. It seemed to just happen before on the short wash cycle (which is a normal cycle like 30 min long), but now it happens on all cycles most of the time, but not all. I am amazed when I actually do a load that I don't have to put back through to rinse or drain; it makes my day. I find it strange to put a load in for an excess of an hour when I don't have soiled clothes. It's seems ridiculous to waste that kind of energy. These appliances are energy efficient labeled, and so far, seem to be doing well in that category, but who knows what my bill will be when every load has to be rinsed again and again. I don't know if this is a glitch with GE or front loaders, but it is irritating.

    Beautiful, Expensive Piece of Junk
    by: Disappointed

    I bought this machine in April 2009. I would not spin out heavy clothes (jeans & towels), you can't put large loads in and it does not get your clothes clean. It runs 2 to 3 hours when washing jeans & towels because it can't balance itself to spin the water completely out. They are still just shy of dripping wet after a 2 to 3 hour cycle. G.E. Service replaced every part in it then brought me another 2010 model and it does the same thing. It is the most beautiful, expensive piece of junk I ever owned. Even when washing regular colored (light weight) clothes, I have to wash them on the extra long cycle to even begin to get the clothes clean. It will not get out ring around the collar no matter how much pre-wash solution you use, even with bleach on the white shirts. What I am saving on water, I am spending in electricity to run this thing extra long to get semi clean clothes. When it can't balance itself the timer continues to add time to compensate, thus it runs 2 to 3 hours for all heavy clothes then I have to re-run it through the 10 minute, DRAIN & SPIN cycle. Now I know why they added this cycle. I can only do one load of laundry per evening on days I have to work if I want them done before bed time. A front load is supposed to save time because you are supposed to be able to put larger loads in this as opposed to a top load washer. Not true with this machine, as a matter of fact, I have to put smaller loads than my previous top loader ant they still never get really clean. I never had problems getting ring around the collar out with my top loader and it is impossible with this machine. Don't buy it you will be very, very disappointed and G.E. won't do anything about it as they say, this is the way it was designed to run. EXPENSIVE JUNK is what I describe this washer to be.
