Walking Washer

Discouraged customer 7/9/2020

I was excited to purchase a new washing machine without the agitator to make washing comforters and blankets easier. Unfortunately, the washer "walks" away from the wall as far as 12-15 inches every time I wash a comforter or blanket.

A little loud

laelhomc 6/18/2020

We've had this washing machine for about 3 months. It came with the house (new construction) so we didn't choose it, but it has been fine. It is a little bit loud but it doesn't bother us. Get's the clothes clean and has lots of different options. Very standard washing machine. We're happy with it.

wine cork 1 6/7/2020

This washer was supplied by my builder for my new condo and it is not what I would have p icked. I like the large stainless steel tub, however there is no fabric softener dispenser. Since I don't like using dryer sheets, I have to try to catch the rinse cycle to add softener.

Easy to get wash done

New York 26 4/29/2020

Easy to figure out the different functions on the control panel. Enough options to cover all of our needs without getting too complex. Big step up from the unit we replaced. Only concern is water level is low on some loads so we're occasionally using the deep fill option.

multiple cycles

Susie60 4/24/2020

I'm very disappointed in this washer model. There is so little water in the tub so clothes do not move around. They're squashed. All of the spin cycles are so strong the squashed clothes are too wrinkled to wear and dryer can't get wrinkles out of sheets. This is my first GE washer (provided by builder), and I would return to store if I purchased it.

I don't like this type of washer

Iapon 3/20/2020

I do not like these type of washer. You can't soak your clothes over night because it does not fill enough water like the other washers that the water is over the clothes. It takes a long time to wash. The clothes are all tangle when it stops so you have to untangle them before you put them in the dryer. It does not stop to add the fabric softener.

Doesn't handle small loads well - at all.

JimHerman 3/8/2020

Purchased new town-home and it included all GE appliances. This washer model is difficult to use and particularly difficult with small loads. Virtually all small loads are out of balance and the washer tries to climb out into the hall. When I attempt to stop it, instructions indicate a single press of the pause button will unlock the lid - I assume after the tub has stopped if in spin cycle; however, this does not happen. The only way to manually redistribute the load is to hold the pause button for 3-5 seconds to cancel the cycle then the entire wash cycle has to restart from the beginning. Then the whole out-of-balance thing starts all over and at least half of the time, I must restart yet again.

New but doesn't include simple features

Notexcitedatall 1/21/2020

This washer doesn't have detergent and softener dispensers to make it difficult to disperse evenly on all the clothes. If you couple that with the lack of water used due to the energy efficient feature it doesn't smell like all the clothes were washed evenly and thoroughly

Very Efficient install

barbiedoll69 1/10/2020

Have yet to use my washer. Am getting ready to do so this AM. But wanted to give kudos to the install team that made short work of getting it all in and working. Ramiro even took time to walk me thru the dials and explain the pause function. Having a shiny new appliance with such a big tub, is wonderful! Only "fault" was the inability to schedule for MY convenience but that is the price of living out in this beautiful countryside! This was one of the best selections offered thru American Home Shield to replace our old washer. I am looking forward to many years of good service!!! I will have to learn how to use the dasher-less tub!
