Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Gets clothes clean

C Higgs 1/22/2021

This washer has been great at getting my clothes clean everytime. The capacity and choice of options is helpful for a variety of load types. Handles heavy items such as area rugs with ease.

Happy_user 1/19/2021

We are extremely happy with this purchase! Clothes come out clean with no soap or other weird smell. The Sanitize feature is great.. helped us a lot when we returned from a vacation house which had bed bugs. Also the WiFi system is very helpful as it tells you when the wash cycle is completed. We don't need to keep checking on the machine.

Convenience for a family of five

BubaFettig 1/19/2021

I still have a few old habits, like preferring to use a customized setting, but it really has done the job. And when I'm tired and just want to dry towels or a blanket, it's so convenient to spin the dial and hit the play button. Four months in and still no issues!

Surprised

KaryB 1/18/2021

I have always had a traditional top load washer and thought I would try a "Laundramat" style front loader. My first reaction was it didn't fill up like the laundramat washers, but it did clean my clothes and has a super fast spin cycle getting a lot of water out of my clothed. Very quiet. I love the direct drive drum. Huge capacity for lots of clothes. I use the "less" setting for automatic soap dispensing because we have a water softener. Super easy to use. Just dial up the load type and push start. I am now part of the present instead of the past when it comes to laundry.

Front Load Market Leader

I now enjoy laundry 1/16/2021

The front load washer is an industry leader, a complete opposite of the Top load. Great Program Management has provided a great looking unit with great vibration balance control, tub venting, quiet, easy to use controls and a nice big door opening that can be reversed without buying a kit (unlike Whirlpool). Wish the Program Management team would be assigned to large capacity Top Load washer. The WiFi feature is useless - lets you know the load is done, but does not let you select air dry if you cannot be home for a while.

Let's Hope

Jetjaxson 1/16/2021

I bought the 2018 edition that's similar to this and it lasted 21 months before GE said it needed a complete rebuild. It was out of warranty even though it says 10 years it's not. Luckily my home warranty paid to replace half of it. Now I got this one to match my dryer. I've only had it a month now but I can already tell they have a different design because it doesn't sound like an earthquake anymore on the spin cycle

There are so many different washing options to include quick, workout clothes, etc. The washer can talk to the dryer to let it know a recommended drying cycle, too. The washer can sync to a phone to signal the cycle is complete.

New Washer

CS49 1/13/2021

Just installed today and am using, my old GE front load has lasted 18+ years, I gave it to my daughter. I'm hoping this one lasts just as long! I like the air vent feature, so mold won't build up.

NaptownRN 1/4/2021

Love this washing machine!! With the pandemic wasn't really able to go to different stores to check out different washing machines. Called Bray & Scarff and the sales rep highly recommended this washer. Other reviews were great so we purchased it after her suggestion. Can I just say that my clothes, towels, and sheets smell absolutely amazing!!!!! And I feel like I'm using less detergent thanks to the automatic detergent reservoir. It releases just the right amount of soap for each load. Also the venting feature after you remove your washed items was really a great idea! My old washer would always smell musty and have moldy buildup on the inside of the door because it was constantly wet. Not this one. The vent dryer comes on automatically. Cannot say enough great things about this washer! Love it!!!!!!!!

An Excellent Imporvement On The Last Washer

PoisonApple16 1/4/2021

Well sized washer; displays and controls are logical and easy to use. There are a few minor improvements I would suggest but, as advertised, this is likely the best washer available. My comments are as follows: 1. Water Hammer: Although greatly improved I can still hear a great deal of water hammer happening. Water hammer is the slamming of valves open and shut; this causes stress on other plumbing fixtures as well as the washer. At this point a firmware controlled automated washer should be able to open and close valves slowly. 2. Smart Dispenser for soap only: Although the smart dispenser is a cool feature it is rendered useless if the user uses bleach or fabric softener in every wash. So smart dispensers for detergent, bleach and fabric softener? Something to consider 3. Interior Illumination: As a personal preference I would like to be able to see the laundry while it's washing. I would add a feature where I could configure features like drum illumination and sounds via the smart app. This would eliminate the need for more buttons on the panel. That's all I have, on the whole this is a very respectable product.

Mike4444 12/28/2020

We purchased the washer and dryer combo to replace our 12 year old Electrolux set. Many of the features offered on the GE set solve problems that we've had on our old appliances. I would never had guessed that the washing machine was going to be noticeably louder and shake much more (even after spending and hour "fine tuning" the leveling using a 36" level).

This large capacity machine cleans clothes faster than my old machine. I love the automatic detergent dispenser, which can be manually adjusted for specific loads. While I am accustomed to leaving the door open when done so the machine dries, the venting feature is nice for times when i prefer to keep it closed.

Too many unbalanced cycles. Too small

Jeltez42 12/25/2020

I moved and needed a washer. This was the only one that I could get in less than 6 months. I have had front load for 20yrs and had 3 unbalanced loads total. I can readjust until my back gives out and it doesn't fix the problem. Add/remove makes no difference. I have to unplug the washer to get it to run again. This struggles to handle a set of queen sheets. It will not work with my quilt fabric. I wish I would have waited for the washer I wanted. The app is horrible as it doesn't tell you the machine is unbalanced. The machine also does not stop so you get to the end of an 1hr cycle only to find soap still in the wash. I want to like this, but I it cleans well when I can get the cycle to complete. This was professionally installed and is level. I will be calling for service asap. Expected much better for the price.
