GE WCVH6800 front load washer
The WCVH6800 is a front-loading washer that looks good inside and out. Its chrome trim body comes in an array of colors that can look good wherever it will be installed. Unfortunately, it takes more than just the sleek-looking design to finally convince consumers into buying. Performance is also on their minds when choosing any home appliance.
The GE WCVH6800 may be compact in size but can take in heavy loads of laundry with its 4 cu.ft. capacity tub. Whether it's a week or two's load of laundry or the drapes at home, this front loader can provide a deeper clean that doesn't damage the laundry. With just a few toggles and presses of its control panel, users get the satisfaction of washing their laundry the way they want to, while LED displays inform them of the progress of the wash cycle.
First off, the washer's controls are very easy to understand and operate. A mix of rotary and push button controls enables users to program the cycles required for certain loads, while LED displays and Adaptive Logic gives users a heads up on what's going on WITH each cycle. As a front-loading washing machine, its door opens at the front, making it suitable to be installed in a closet or other small spaces that don't have enough headroom. Despite being a compact machine, a good amount of laundry can be fitted in, with its king-size capacity tub, for just one wash. In the end, consumers get to save more time, effort, and even energy when doing the laundry.
The WCVH6800 gives a deeper clean even before the suds work their way through the fabric. With the HydroHeater™, the temperature of the water used for washing is increased to better get rid of bacteria and stubborn stains. Along with the PerfecTemp™ technology, the temperature of the water used in washing is regulated in order to preserve the quality and color of the fabric.
The laundry gets better treatment by picking the right cycle out of 26 available wash cycles for the kind of fabric to be washed. Mix and match washing, rinsing, and even spinning cycles to further suit the types of laundry have been included into the features of this washer. There's no need to experiment with different kinds of combination to get the best clean users had the last time. With the WCVH6800, custom cycles can be saved with just a touch of a button, much like how anyone would save numbers on speed dial. For those who want their laundry to soak up for a few hours to break up stain and dirt particles, the washer's delay start option can be activated.
HydroMotion™ wash action
Though the WCVH6800 gives the laundry
a deep clean, it still takes good care of the fabric with the HydroMotion™ wash action. This wash action gently tumbles the laundry to give a thorough washing without damaging the quality of the fabric. The five wash/rinse temperatures with sanitize options allow consumers to take charge of their laundry, giving them a deeper clean that's hygienic and odor-free. This washer also gives the laundry an effective rinse to further flush out the dirt and the detergent.
After rinsing, the 1100 rpm spin speed effectively gets rid of more water during the spin cycle. This ensures that the time and energy spent during drying is reduced. This washer is also certified by Energy Star, as it helps users save on water and energy usage.
Despite the heavy-duty motor in this machine, the WCVH6800 is a washer that doesn't make too much noise. With the Quiet-By-Design™ feature, there won't be rattling noises during use.
Stylish, efficient, and affordable -- what more could users want in a washing machine? The WCVH6800 certainly lives up to many user expectations when it comes to features needed to take on a family's laundry load. Since it's Energy Star certified, consumers can also apply for rebates if applicable in their locality.
Though this washer can be installed in closets or as free-standing, a platform may be necessary to keep it in place. These platforms and other mounting accessories are not included in the washer package and need to be purchased separately. Some consumers reported online that these accessories are pricey or expensive to buy and install.
For consumers who want to take charge of their laundry with just one touch of a button, the WCVH6800 can be their best bet. They just have to make sure that this washer is installed in a place where it would fit so they won't have to purchase the platform and other accessories. All in all, this washer is not only sleek-looking but also reliable.
