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.

So Far, So Good

Denzo 123 5/4/2020

After owning several front loaders, I am a little gun shy to give glowing review, but, for the little time I have owned this washer, it has been excellent. Just hope it lasts longer than the previous front loaders.

I hate this washer. It absolutely sucks. Can't wash anything without it sounding unlevel and like it is going to take off. Always having to adjust the laundry because it won't sit right in the basket

Burrdude 4/29/2020

Just purchased this to replace a 12 year old wahser that was leaking and making grinding sounds. I was impressed this washer's features and price at the store. I really like the automatic load sensing feature and the deep basket. After washing several loads, I am pleased with the performance of this washer so far, and look forward to many years of use.

Looks great and cleans well

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.

Poor design

Cowpunchers wife 3/3/2020

I've had a repairman out two times because the bleach dispenser leaks bleach onto the floor. All I've been told is to make sure the dispenser is aligned with the holes in the top of the washer drum. If this is right, which I doubt, it's a very poor design.

Don't recommend this GE washer

KoalaB 3/2/2020

I purchased this washer because I figured the GE name it would be an awesome reliable machine. It's just the opposite I have had nothing but issues with this washer. The store I bought it from even replaced my first washer because it was such a lemon. It was constantly going off balance so they replaced it at no cost to me ( awesome right) yeah NOT second machine is still constantly going off balance and now two times now I've tried starting the washer and it will put water in the drum it Goes threw the motions to work and then stops and shuts off. Honestly I'm so frustrated at this point and the repair company takes there sweet time fixing it. But that's not GEs problem haha

not too bad

JerryLD 2/26/2020

Mostly it does what it says. A couple of annoying things: 1) Description says internet compatible but that is misleading because the unit doesn't actually come internet ready, you have to separately purchase and install an additional module which not everyone can do and is additional significant expense. 2) The sensing and balancing function doesn't know how to balance a single large bath towel ... every time I wash my large white bath sheet the unit looses balance and shakes itself apart during spin so I always have to stand there an watch it. Otherwise unit operates just fine

Cleans very well!

Cattle farmers wife 2/25/2020

I do love the way this washer cleans. However, it seems there is a flaw in the design in that if the washer drum isn't perfectly aligned with the bleach dispenser, the bleach goes down the outside of the drum and onto the floor. I reported this to G E, who arranged for a service call, but the repairman said there wasn't anything wrong with the machine. He said I had to make sure the holes in the top of the drum rim were aligned with the dispenser. Should not have to do that. My previous GE washer had a plastic tube that took the bleach to the drum.

Maria V 2/19/2020

This machine has terrible balancing system. Doesn't matter what size of the load we had to rearrange the load with hands in order to finish spin. We return this machine and bought front load GFW650 and this one works well so far. CANT RECOMEND THIS TOP LOAD MACHINE TO ANYBODY.

Love the Wash Options!

rloweradio 2/3/2020

I love the variety of wash options! It makes my life easier. The delayed wash doesn't work correctly (or I haven't figured it out yet), but is extremely handy to have! I don't have the hot water connected (to save on the electric bill), so when I accidentally hit a setting that is programmed for hot water, it senses that there is H20 Supply error. I have to wait for the machine to decide to turn itself off (I cannot simply correct the issue by changing the wash setting or power cycling off then back on) before I can select the correct setting. If it would allow user correction on wash settings, it'd be helpful. Even better: if it intelligently self- corrected! I'm planning on adding the necessary components so I can control the machine with the GE App.
