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.

Chuck 484 7/8/2020

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!

I'm glad that we got this washer it was the only top-loading washer that they had at the store at that time. Read some reviews while I was there and decided to buy it. I was very pleased with the features and the way that it washes. I would recommend this washer to anybody looking for a top load washer with an agitator in it.

Deb1825 6/19/2020

Love the deep tub and the control panel. Did not understand the spin at the beginning of the cycle but this load sensing function allows for the perfect amount of water and my clothes, bedding and towels come out clean. Water saving function is ideal for AZ. The dial gives me multiple wash cycle options to customize my laundry. Have not tried the stain feature yet but so far GE has hit a home run with this machine.

Very loud spin and "agitation"

Jzona 6/2/2020

I saw this on sale and needed to find a replacement quickly, so bought it. The motor is horribly loud. Might be fine in a garage, but I have it in an apartment so am very disappointed. Tucked into the manual was a card with a link to the "normal noises". Too bad the link isn't offered on the product page, I would have made a different purchase.

Great auger style washer

Nerotn12 5/19/2020

I had to replace a HE top loader and really wanted my next washer to be an auger type washer. I never felt the HE top loaders cleaned very well. The front load washers are ok, but they have long cycle times, mold issues and they are more expensive. So after some researching, I decided to buy the GE, and I have to say it's great. This washer is an HE but the auger actually moves the clothes top to bottom through plenty of water and cleans them -how novel! It's just great to have the auger function again.

MrsBentley 5/12/2020

We like the washer but after just having it a few weeks, the piece in the lid which indicates the lid is closed (and allows the washer to run) snapped off. The part is very flimsy for such an expensive washer. We had to glue and duct tape it together just to be able to wash clothes. Not sure yet if GE will warranty the part.

April50 4/19/2020

I have had my GE washing machine a couple of months now. Its a pretty good machine. It cleans well and pretty easy to use. It is louder then expected. I would have bought something else if i know this was so loud. Its not whole house loud, but with all the technology today, I would have expected something quiter.
