GE Profile WPGT9150 top load washer
GE appliances are known for their sleek designs. However, the GE WPGT9150 does so much more than just impress with its good looks. This heavy-duty washer performs excellently, giving laundry the deep clean it deserves and users the ease of getting rid of dirt in just a touch of a button.
The WPGT9150 is a top-loading machine that accommodates heavy loads of laundry. It has a king-size capacity of 4 cu. ft., making it suitable for a week's worth of clothes and other kinds of fabric such as heavy blankets and towels in one wash.
GE washers are also known for their efficiency when it comes to energy and water usage. Not suprisingly, the WPGT9150 is equipped with the same features that qualify for an Energy Star certification.
Inside the tub, a stainless steel wash basket with perforated sides effectively contains the laundry during the washing process. Since the laundry is loaded vertically, fabrics can receive a deeper clean as water and detergent permeate more effectively through the holes in the wash basket's sides.
This washer is powered by the HydroWash System with Infusor™. It also has an automatic bleach, detergent, and fabric conditioner dispenser that evenly distributes appropriate amounts of the said products to the laundry.
HydroWash™ drive system
This washer allows users to take care of their laundry the way they want to with its various wash cycles that can tackle different kinds of fabric. For blankets, towels, and heavy loads of laundry, they can choose the heavy duty cycle. Wools, lace, and even denim get the same kind of clean but through different cycles that take care of the fabric while driving out germs and dirt.
To ensure that the detergent is thoroughly rinsed out, there's the 2nd rinse option. If pressed for time, then a speed wash and quick rinse cycle can also be done. Thanks to the HydroWash™ drive system, the clothes are thoroughly but gently cleaned at the touch of electronic buttons of the control panel. It is easy to mix and match washing, rinsing, and spinning options depending on the type of fabrics or the time available for laundry cleaning.
Cycles and Settings
In order to get stubborn stains and dirt out, the WPGT9150 also makes use of different water temperatures in the washing and the rinsing process. Despite using hot water to drive out dirt, the quality and
color of the fabric are maintained, thanks to the automatic thermostat that uses cold water to rinse the clothes.
Speaking of stains, the WPT9150 configures the amount of water, detergent, and even the cycles needed in washing the laundry based on the severity of the dirt and stains. This washer has three soil options: heavy, light, and normal. White fabric pieces are given special attention with the whites cycle option. For gentle treatment on delicate clothing such as nightgowns or baby's clothes, the handwash cycle is proven to be thorough but still extra careful on the laundry.
The WPGT9150 has a control panel that is very easy to understand and operate. It has a LED cycle countdown that lets users know of the status of the laundry with its flashing lights. They can also program this washer to start washing only after the detergent has soaked through and through to remove the stains and dirt more effectively. After the washing is done, the end of cycle indicator will go off to alert users.
Water levels are automatically controlled along with its temperature through the RighTemp™ system. Water usage and energy consumption are largely reduced, making the WPGT9150 an Energy Star certified washing machine.
On top of other user-friendly features, consumers also appreciate the work done by the WPGT9150's AutoBalance™ suspension system that keeps this machine from spinning out of control. This top loader has a clear HydroView™ glass lid that allows users to check on the progress of their wash without having to open the lid. Even at 1010 rpm, users still find the WPGT9150 to be a quiet operator.
Though users can combine different kinds of washing, rinsing, and spinning cycles to cater to their needs, there doesn't seem to be just a separate spinning option for this washer. Despite the very good reviews online, some still comment that the washer makes a little rattling noise and action when a full load is run.
For those who are looking for a good value for their money, the GE WPGT9150 is a good choice, especially when anticipating large loads of laundry during wash days. This washer has intuitive features and easy to operate buttons.
