Delighted to have a top loader again

12/27/2018

Very good washer. Well designed for easy use and operation. Gets everything clean The cycles are a bit confusing compared to older style not computerized model. The count down timer is helpful for understanding. Glass lid is interesting. A great improvement over front loaders. We tried two front loaders both were very problematic in trying to keep them clean. Greatly prefer the top loaders.

This washer has lots of cycle selections with temperature and wash settings. I would have selected 5 stars if it had a soak setting. It is a little noisy so we always need to close the laundry room door. It is a large capacity without having a large cabinet. I selected this brand and model because it was made in the USA. I hope that it will last 10 years and that parts will be available if necessary. I like the glass top load door. It is fun to watch the clothes spinning.

Great washer. Loaded with features.

12/22/2018

This washer goes through a ritual before washing but it balances the load auto adjusts the water level and even determines proper spin speed for each load. It makes sounds as it does this but I have it in a seperate laundry room so it doesnt bother me at all. Great washer. Huge tub and a fully functional agitator for true deep clothes washing.

Where is my water?

12/17/2018

My husband and I get very upset when trying to wash our clothes. I cant just walk away from it when trying to wash. Sometimes it just decides its not going to fill up with water and wash. To be honest it doesnt ever fill up enough to wash. I will still find dirty clothes when I go to put in dryer. It doesnt agitate very well either. When we were picking out a new one the sells person didnt tell us anything about it. We taught it was broke at 1st. Not happy with it and stuck with it.

I bought this machine several months ago and Im very happy with the performance. It cleans our clothes better than our old machine and has settings to match various types of clothing and other washables such as sheets and towels. Im happy I was able to find a modern top loader with a smaller agitator instead of having to purchase a front loader.

Am so happy with this washer. Love the deep fill feature and the agitator. I wanted an old fashioned washer with an agitator as I feel they clean better and this one does.

I bought this in September very happy with it. Lots of wash options water temp choices. Some wash loads take as short as 40 min some 62 min deep wash . Has a self clean feature that I have used to clean the basket. I would purchase this again. One thing I should mention. This washer is narrower taller then our last washer. We did have to move it over 6 inches so lid wouldnt hit the cupboard above it. I didnt think to check the measurements of the washer. Its not a problem for us.

Overall decent but has some issues

12/13/2018

Overall its not bad. Its visually nice to look at has a ton of features and seems to clean well. I like the deep fill option the most in fact its why I chose this model. So far after owning it a few months I have two issues with it. No matter what type of wash cycle I put it on it literally ties my sheets in knots. Im not overloading the washer mind you Im talking about a single beds worth of sheets. They come out wrinkled like you cant believe and I have to spend five minutes untangling them before I put them in the dryer. Im not even exaggerating its that bad. The other issue I have is that it goes off balance quite easily and it sounds like its going to come through the wall. It does this despite me placing the clothes evenly around the edges like the manual suggests. Very frustrating overall but it seems to be a common complaint for these new types of washers.

Some questions

12/11/2018

The fact that the water level is low is confusing. I can add water but I have to keep pushing the add button. I question if the low water level will cause the clothes to be wrinkled. The noise of the agitator makes it sound like it is grinding metal that it may break but Im hoping this is normal. Getting used to it.

REGRET buying washer it cant balance small load

12/8/2018

I have only had this washer for 2 days and I already regret my purchase. I placed a bathrobe evenly around the agitator and it cant balance the load at all. My old agitator washer was built better than this. The wash tub in this washer was slamming around the sides worse than any washer I have ever owned. This washer has quality issues especially with load balancing which seems to be non-existant.

Takes some getting used to

11/29/2018

Have to get used to using less water than traditional machines. Clothes rub together and look worn. I always use the deep fill and deep rinse cycles and it works better. Love that it holds a lot of clothes. Its hard to use regular fabric softener. I always like to rinse with vinegar and the machine is so quiet that its hard to catch the rinse cycle and you can only use Vinegar or fabric softener if you use the deep rinse cycle. Or you buy the expensive pellets and add them at the beginning. Its a nice machine but maybe not the best for a senior adult. I had to read the instructions several times to learn how to use it.

Broken within 2 months wont drain properly

11/27/2018

Very unhappy Wasnt supposed to have this machine w/agitator in the 1st placedue 2/leasing company Delivering the wrong machines 4/a second time Was actually supposed to get higher end models which still havent been changed out due to myself being in the Hospital so much which this company Aarons was well aware of My health issues when we entered into this agreement/contract its been nothing but 2 sets of broken/used machines....which I SPECIFICALLY ORDERED New machines lease to own Now I have this washer dryer set which has either damaged my clothing/Sheets etc. By spinning them around and under this agitator or a load of usually a comforter by itselfthat wont drain no matter how many drain spin cycles you run which is a complete waste of H2O bc for some reason instead of just draining spinning the machine will always add more H20 too the load that is soaking wet? I have to say I am under impressed and this is my 1st experience with a GE appliance. Well I guess I will cross my fingers when they finally/hopefully swap these machines out once and for all

Large tub- water hog

11/23/2018

I bought this washer about a month ago and still need to watch the water level - if I dont put it in deep fill - I may only end up with a couple inches of water in the rib and clothes that are dry when they should be washed. I do love the size of the tub and can wash bedspreads without it going off balance. The noise is - average sometimes I wonder what is going in in there - other times I dont notice. I do wish I would of chose something different.
