GE Spacemaker Laundry WSM2700 WSM2780
I moved into a brand new apartment with a GE Spacemaker Laundry installed in it. It goes by model number WSM2700 and WSM2780. I think the difference between the models is the color. First time I ran it there was a small squeaking noise from the springs in the washer. This soon turned into a horrible screeching noise like there was a banshee living in my washer.
GE said it was normal and that it would go away after a few uses. It didn’t. I have to have a repair man come out to take the thing apart. According to GE’s repair guy the Spacemaker Laundry isn’t made by GE, but it’s a rebranded washer from another company I had never heard of, can’t recall the name now unfortunately.
There’s 300 of these things installed in my apartment complex and apparently every single one of them has had to be serviced within the first month of that apartment being moved into.
After about 3 hours of messing with the thing and spraying it with Windex, (yes he used Windex to fix my washer) the squeaking was down to a tolerable level. He had to order a part to jerry rig the thing to not squeak anymore, after that came in and he was able to install it the washer is now no louder than any other washer I have used.
Other than that problem the washer does what a washer should do, gets my clothes clean. It has water saving settings which is good for the environment. The dryer does a good job of drying so long and you don’t overload it. It can’t take as much clothing as the washer can, so if you want to dry everything you wash you have to plan ahead and not pack the washer. The dryer’s also has the ability to suck more lint out of clothing than I have ever seen a dry do before. The trap is always overflowing after you run a load, if you’re not careful lint will get all over whatever you pull out first.
