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.

Loaded Features & Deep Fill

JZB101 8/29/2020

Love the stainless steel tub in this washer and lack of agitator for even greater capacity. Has a deep fill function so you can get plenty of water, unlike other washers that limit fill line. Sensor takes care of levels. Has many features to help different kinds of stains; also has option for 2nd spin (which lowers dryer time), deep soak, extra rinse, and 5 levels for water temp. The tub is so smooth, clothes won't get frayed. Very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend.

Large capacity, fast cycle

ST808 8/25/2020

My only complaint about this washer is that it is loud. Otherwise, I like the large capacity, the relatively fast normal wash cycle of approximately 30 min (my old washer took more than an hour), and that the clothes come out clean!

Unstable laundry tub

Florida mom 8/21/2020

This washer would rock and roll the first week of use. Terrible options with very low water intake on cycles. Had to put everything on bulk cycle so that laundry has enough water to thoroughly wash cloths. Again, the cheaper versions seem to do much better job. Was given to me from Lennar as part of the appliance package...

Disappointed with features

camoore717 8/12/2020

This 'HE' washer does not even cover my clothes with enough water to wash them. I constantly am using the 'Bulky Items' setting to activate 'Deep Fill' so there's enough water. I also washed my comforter and shams as well as a separate washing for my blanket (all are king size) and the only way I can get it to spin all the water out is to set it on 'Additional Spin'. For it to be a 'smart washer', it is not very smart! Not happy with this purchase.

Ckit 8/4/2020

This is my first GE washer & it's my favorite. It has more features than I need & it was easy to learn all features. I also love that it plays a tube as it starts so I know it's using the cycle I chose.

Superior Performance

Wade Y 7/24/2020

I love this washer! Not having a center agitator is fabulous when it comes to washing bulky items. I was surprised by the cleaning power. My whites were clean & stain free without the use of bleach-a testimony to the superior performance of the washer. The washer requires less water per load, great for water conserving & energy reduction."

Washes the Dirt Away

DblRJac 7/17/2020

This washer has a large tub that can wash an extra large quilt easily and get it so clean that it looks like new. With no agitator, you don't have to worry about items getting tangles around it and stretching that material and ruining your clothes. You can barely hear it work and that is always a plus.

Softener please

Babe7 6/26/2020

There is NO designated place for fabric softener. If you're lucky, or baby sit the washer like in a laundry mat, you may catch the rinse cycle while it's filling up, providing you pressed the Deep Fill button.

Ear70 5/29/2020

Doesn't matter the cycle you choose the sense will not find the enough water quantity to wash. At the end of cycle you will find soap over the clothes. And this is one of many negative features. Please buy something else! This product was placed in may house by the builder, I would never choose to buy this if I have researched.

No Softener Dispenser = wrinkled clothes

Phyllis573 5/27/2020

I moved to an apartment. This is the washer in the new apartment. I could not locate a dispenser for the softner. I asked the leasing company for the manual but did not receive one. The clothes are wrinkled and not soft. I finally bought a Downy dispenser from Amazon. Also, do not put sheets in with anything else. They form a cover on all of the clothes and wrap themselves tightly over the other items. I would love to have the front loader I had in my home. It had a softener dispenser and the sheets did not form a cover on all of the other items.

I like the washer except for one thing.. if you don't put it at the right setting for what you're washing then it won't dissolve/use all the product you put in (i.e. oxy clean and scented beads). Other than that it works great.
