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.

Biged61 9/11/2020

Washes clothes so much better than the front load I used for 7 years with nothing but mold problems, drain pump problems and stopping mid cycle problems. I love it as it gets out the ground in dirt my son brings home from his work installing cooling towers. Has large capacity to do comforters and pillows. Very quiet also and stays in place unlike my front load which wanted to go for a jog down the street. Great buy, very satisfied.

Best of all the poor choices available

Eyfankd 9/9/2020

We moved into a new house a year ago and I searched for months attempting to find a washer that would actually wash clothes and I had ruled out front loaders. The only way to get enough water to wash clothes is to always use the "Bulky" cycle regardless of what you are washing and there will still be barely enough water. The Deep Fill Option only works if you sit in front of the washer the entire cycle and keep pressing the button to add water. There are instructions to set the Deep Fill at the start of the cycle; however, they do not work on this model. I even called into GE Support and they verified. I load it as outlined in the book and make sure to only wash items of the same weight together, or the machine easily goes off balance. As others have mentioned it can shred items even when loaded properly. If you want a washer that will clean you need to buy a commercial upright Maytag that is old school; however, they cost at least $1000. Wish we would have kept our 25-year-old Kenmore when we moved.

What I was looking for.

mzzj54 9/2/2020

It had all the features I wanted. I wanted an updated "old school" agitator machine that has a quick cycle. I didn't need all the new bells and whistles, although this one has many more than the 20 year old machine it replaced. I wanted a machine large enough to wash a kind size comforter, which is does. It is quite noisy at the fill and beginning of the wash cycle.

TAMF 8/30/2020

I love that it has an agitator, I love all of the features and cycles. It washes my clothes very well. I dislike the glass lid. I am 5'2" and can not reach the bottom. I bought a matched set washer and dryer and they don't match. They are not the same height and cannot be adjusted to be the same height. That is very disappointing and ascetically bothering.

Jude8 8/5/2020

This is an attractive washing machine and is super efficient with many cycles. The clothes come out really clean and has a deep fill choice to add more water. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasnt so noisy. Luckily my washroom is far from my living area. I wouldnt recommend this machine if it was in a kitchen or hallway closet due to the noise.

We love this washer. I had read that it was a little noisy, but it was quieter than my last high efficiency washer. It takes 40 to 45 minutes to do a load, where my last one took at least twice that long. Does a great job cleaning the clothes. Very pleased with it.

Barontn1 7/6/2020

I had the unit for three months, great agitation but the tub started rusting. Im not sure how, because it's a stainless steel tub and were the seam is joined, rusted. Im thinking welding changed the cheap stainless to loose it's inherent protective coating.

I miss my old GE washer

AAAAAA2019 7/5/2020

This low water energy efficiency stuff is a joke. The clothes actually have to get wet in order to be washed and rinsed. I usually end up choosing the deep fill button just to get all the items wet. The rinse is just a quick spray - not what I would call a rinse. You have to choose the deep rinse button for an actual rinse. After 3 months the agitator started making a strange, intermittent grinding noise but the rep. who came out to look at it said it was normal. If that type of noise is normal, I suggest adding it to the list of normal noises.

Every day washer

Shareefieg 6/26/2020

I wash clothes literally almost everyday! I'm a stay at home mom with a toddler that is constantly getting messy and a husband who has a dirty job so finding a washing machine that could take a beating in our household was an absolute priority! We found exactly what we needed with this washer. I've had our washing machine for almost 3 years now and have no complaints. Our clothes always come out clean I love all the features to choose from especially the speed wash option and deep fill.We used to only purchase Maytag appliances but GE had in my opinion was way more affordable and that was appealing to us so we took a leap of faith changed our brand choice to GE and we are glad that we did! I feel like this washer is going to last and most importantly I'm super happy with it's performance Thank You GE!
