GE Profile WPRE8150 3.5 Cu. Ft. King-Size Capacity Washer
The WPRE8150 is part of the top-loading series of GE washers. It has a volume capacity of 3.5 cu. ft. and can accommodate up to 150 pounds of laundry. Judging by its weight and volume capacities, this top-loading washer can wash more clothes with less loading times.
This also goes to show how sturdy the tub or drum must be to be able to hold heavy batches of laundry. Its stainless steel wash basket can do more washing at once. It can also hold large comforters, bedding, and curtains other than clothes. This washer is designed to reduce the time spend for this household chore.
Energy Star Qualified
Aside from its heavy-duty features, this top loader is also Energy Star qualified. The WPRE8150 is designed in such a way that higher energy efficiency will result in paying for lower utility bills. As some would put it, this washing machine is not only user-friendly but also environment-friendly.
HydroWave Wash System
Another key feature of this washer is the HydroWave wash system. This provides users with variable speeds to better clean and care for different types of clothing using various wash action to match them with. Meticulous cleaning is also made available to the laundry that travels slower and longer through the water. This way, the tougher cleaning action won't result in ruining the fabric.
The Hydrowave wash system makes sure that the washer will stay gentle on clothes, so they won't be stretched out of shape.
This washer also recognizes the needs of different types of clothing and fabric. With six wash/spin speed combinations, users can choose the optimal speed for each wash. This top loader has multiple wash cycles that provide better cleaning results in less time. Up to six wash/rinse temperatures are available to further ensure optimum fabric cleaning and care.
The rainshower rinse system is effective in washing away detergent residue as well as dirt. The residues can leave odor on clothes and even cause stains and even dirt to get stuck.
In using the WPRE8150, water usage is also reduced. Variable water levels allow users to control
their use and make sure that none is wasted. Other more advanced features include the rotary electronic controls with Adaptive Logic system and the LED countdown timer. Its dispensers, automatic soak, and extended spin options all contribute to the ease and convenience of using this washer.
According to many users, the major advantage of this washer is its Energy Star qualification. Most top loaders are known to consume more water and energy because of their agitators. But with the WPRE8150, consumers do enjoy the savings they get from its enhanced wash action.
Aside from this, its king-size capacity enables the users to load more laundry items, thereby reducing the frequency of loading. This washer is also known to clean well because of its HydroWave wash system, multiple wash cycles, and many other intuitive features that take good care even of delicate fabrics. Despite the good number of features, it doesn't make too much noise when operating.
There are quite a number of consumers who are impressed by this washer. However, there are also some who do not find this top loader very helpful. One of the factors that make it less attractive to consumers is its design. It's bulky and takes up valuable room space.
Another thing that discourages some consumers from buying this washer is that it is a bit pricey for its range.
The WPRE8150 packs in a lot of good features that would suit most modern households. The silent spin, thorough cleaning yet safe washing, and the various control settings are just some of the features of this washer that would be attractive to buyers.
However, the washer's design is not as appealing as other washers. The price, for some consumers, is also not justified. There are other equally impressive top loaders that are below the price range of the WPRE8150.
