Though the GE WPRE6100G is smaller than other washing machines out there, it's 3.5 cu. ft. capacity tub can just as well take on moderate loads in one go. Its wide opening at the top easily opens and fits in even large loads such as towels, comforters, or curtains into a stainless steel wash basket. Users can easily set the washing cycles for their laundry with the rotary electronic controls on its dashboard. They can also keep watch over the washing cycle, thanks to the cycle countdown and washer control selection displayed on its LED screen. Cycle status lights also allow them to see, even from a distance, the progress of each wash cycle.
PerfecTemp™ water temperature system
The GE WPRE6100G is a washer that helps save on energy and water usage while getting rid of germs and stubborn stains through the PerfecTemp™ water temperature system. This water system helps save on water and detergent by heating up the water used for the initial rinse so that germs are killed by the heat and stubborn stains are easily shaken loose. Clothes are then treated to a bath of cold water to preserve the color and quality of the fabric. There are five wash/rinse temperatures to choose from. Water levels are also automatically adjusted depending on the weight of the load. The bleach and fabric softener dispenser does a good job at expelling the said laundry solutions evenly throughout the load.
In other conventional washers, clothes are spun and tumbled hard during the washing process that they end up knotted together and even damaged. With the GE WPRE6100G, dirt and stains are effectively washed out without causing too much distress on the fabric. Thanks to its GentlePower™ agitator, the GE WPRE6100G takes care of their clothes as if it they were hand-washed.
Settings and Cycles
This washer has a multiple number of wash cycles to take care of the laundry no matter what the type of fabric is in it. To take care of stains on fragile garments, the Delicates cycle can wash out the dirt without inflicting damage on the fabric. If it's the care and the thoroughness of handwashing that's needed for certain types of clothes, the GE WPRE6100G has a Handwash cycle that won't harm or tire the hands.
Cotton fabric receives the proper treatment and care with the Cottons cycle (with regular extra heavy soil, regular extra light soil, regular heavy soil, regular light soil, and regular medium soil options). There is also the Casuals cycle with pulsed heavy and medium soil options. If the detergent needs a little more time to work its magic, this washer has a 15-minute and 30-minute Auto Soak options before the washing process commences. For those who want to do their laundry in a jiffy, the Easy Care cycle with heavy, light, and medium doil options can give a quick and easy clean without eating up too much time.
The WPRE6100G's efficiency just doesn't stop after the suds have been rinsed away. In fact, this washer also has a second rinse option to effectively flush out any detergent residue from the laundry. A quick rinse option is also available. This washer also serves as an effective spinner, squeezing out excess moisture from the washed laundry.
Some consumers have cited the efficiency of GE's WPRE6100 in regulating the use of water, energy, and even detergent during operation. It is also a bit more affordable than others considering the many features packed into its compact body. This washer also has an AutoBalance™ Suspension System that keeps the machine from vibrating too much when in use. Basically, the main advantage of using this washer is its high quality cleaning performance, especially when settings are chosen well.
Despite its ability to cut back on water and detergent usage, the GE WPRE6100G isn't ENERGY STAR Certified. Also, some users have complained of an annoying hums when the washer is fully loaded.
If you want a washer that performs more than just your basic wash-rinse cycle, then the GE WPRE6100G could be the right one for you. At approximately $500, you'll definitely get a bargain with this kind of washer.More GE Washer ReviewsGE Washing Machines Main Page Washing and Dryer Reviews Homepage
