GE WPRE6150 top load washer
The WPRE6150's capacity is 3.5 cu.ft. Though it is smaller than the usual 4 cu. ft. machines in the market, it makes up through its cleaning power. Beneath this compact white-enameled exterior lies a motor that is ready and able to take on the heaviest of loads yet still be gentle enough on the most delicate types of fabric.
The WPRE6150 is a sight to behold and a cinch to control with its rotary electronic wash/rinse control knobs at the panel. Washer control features are displayed on a LED screen along with the cycle countdown. Users no longer have to watch its every spin, as the cycle status lights can tell them at what stage the washing is in. This washer is a top-loading type of machine that has a door that opens wide at the top to accommodate even large pieces of laundry such as blankets or towels. Inside the 3.5 cu. ft. tub is a stainless steel wash basket that contains the laundry items. Water is dispensed into the laundry through the RainShower™ System.
PerfecTemp™ variable water system
The GE WPRE6150 assures users of cleaner and fresher fabrics by using water that has been set at different temperatures to kill germs and get rid of stains fast. With its PerfecTemp™ variable water system, the water used to first rinse out the clothes are heated up to kill germs and bacteria and loosen stubborn dirt and grime. After flushing out the germs and dirt, the washer runs the laundry into cold water to help preserve the color and quality of the fabric. There are six temperature settings to choose from with GE's WPRE6150.
GentlePower™ Control agitator
Unlike other washers that use aggressive agitators and fans in the tub that damages clothes, the GE WPRE6150 uses the GentlePower™ Control agitator. This type of agitator handles even the most delicate of the laundry items with utmost care, while driving out the stains and dirt. This washer has six wash/spin combinations and 32 cycles to choose from.
For those who want to have that gentle but thorough washing the hands can do, this washer has a Handwash cycle with light soil setting. This not only gets rid of the stain as if they washed it by their hands, but also takes extra care of the fabric while being washed. Fabric pieces such as cottons can be soaked prior to the washing process if there are stains that are hard to remove. Auto soaking time ranges from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. For those items
that have really heavy stains, the washer can be set to regular extra heavy soil, regular extra light soil, regular heavy soil, regular light soil, or regular medium soil to get rid of these stains without damaging the color and quality of your fabric.
Baby clothes, lingerie, and other small articles of clothing can get the germs and the dirt driven out of them without reducing their fabric to shreds, thanks to the Delicates cycle with light soil option. Casual types of clothing are also treated with the heavy soil or medium soil options. If on a schedule and don't have the time to do a full load, the Easy Care cycle of this top-loading washer with heavy soil, light soil, and medium soil options can take care of the dirt and germs without having to wait a little longer.
When it comes to rinsing out the suds, this washer is also a very competent machine that takes out the excess detergent with a Quick Rinse or even a Second Rinse option. Squeezing out excess water is done by the spin cycle with extended spin option. It's possible to remove the excess moisture without having to wash the garment all over again with the spin only option.
Many users find the GE WPRE6150 to be a very effective washer because it is efficient, ENERGY STAR Qualified, and affordable. It cleans well and has gentle fabric care features.
A lot of complaints about this washer stem from its being a noisy machine when used. Some users have also reported that their units didn't work at all upon first try, after the delivery to their homes.
If you want a washer that's heavy on the features but not on the pocket and space, then this one can be the right one for you. Though there are some reported quirks, most consumers gave this washer a good rating.
