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.

Amazing Features

Ravenslocke 6/21/2022

I have been very impressed with this washer from the day it was installed. I love that it has an updated agitator that is virtually non existent. It allows me to wash bulkier items without needing to visit a laundromat. I also love that I have multiple choices for what I'm washing and how I'm washing them. The size of the barrel is a very nice bonus as well. I don't need to do laundry as often since there is a larger barrel in the washer. Overall I have been very happy with my purchase of this washer.

The washer came with the house. Glad the builders chose this. It's easy to use. The washer sets the load amount so the water is automatic. It's really big inside and no middle spinner that tangles your blankets and clothes!

junk washer and even worse service

lb10x 4/14/2022

out of balance every load load sensing / fill does not work, found it washing a half dry load after trying to add cloths to existing load. you have to use the deep fill option every time. final straw was the washer through a pressure sensor loss code, diagnostic test confirmed this failure. i opened the control panel and found the pressure switch to be an integral part of mother board. and you have to be a certified GE tech to replace it. I called the only GE tech in the area. waited 2 weeks for an open appointment. The tech shows up and refused to hook up his "certified GE computer", and order my parts" because I "started" to work on it. What a joke.

At first I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but now that I've learned how to use it properly, I love it! It's great on heavy loads and keeps everything balanced beautifully! Less water usage and everything comes out clean and fresh! I'm super happy with the washer and I also have the matching dryer!

NewhomeownerTX 3/24/2022

I absolutely hate not being able to load a washer with running water - but it is what is is. This machine has performed extremely well with a variety of items. Has kept great balance for bulky and heavy items - took a minute to learn how to reset the spin, but all is good! Do not use fragrance pellets as they can stick to items with this sensor-detection/water load system. Love the option for additional spins and rinses!

Not enamored with lack of agitator

Spec Home Buyer 3/19/2022

Thought that the top loader without agitator would be great for large loads, sheets and towels, however, becomes unbalanced and doesn't spin clothes effectively.

WATER WILL NOT GO INTO MACHINE...

KAS_4_CA_BA_JES 2/3/2022

Hi! My washer WAS working fine, but now water won't go in. The only water that will, are periodic dribbles. It'll run through ALL the cycles to the end, but no water. Hot & cold are all the way on & I have reset the electronics, a couple times, to no avail. Could something be clogged & if so, what & where please? Thank you so much in advance!

Good washer

Sil V 2/2/2022

Very good washer. It's very very roomy inside. The only thing I don't like is not having a fabric softener dispenser for the rinsing cycle. You have to pour all the detergent, fabric softener before putting the clothe at once. It only has the chlorine dispenser. Over all it does a very good job.

The loudest washing machine, ever

MsTCB 1/19/2022

My clothes come out clean, but this washing machine is the loudest ever! It came with my new home. I even had service come out hear. Unfortunately, that's the way it is. It's like the agitation is on super loud. This isn't a good thing when the convenience of having a washer by your bedroom keeps you from washing at night bc it disturbs your sleep. The clothes get clean but the noise, smh.

Sometimes leaves my clothes soaking wet

Frankmills 1/14/2022

I love using the intelli-sense feature to have the washer figure out how much water is needed for my laundry load. I'm not used to a washer without an agitator and have been pleasantly surprised by how the washer keeps my clothes clean while using so little water. That being said, something in the programming of the device must be off as every once in a while I open my washer in the afternoon after letting it run in the morning and my clothes are soaking wet. Re-running the wash seems to fix the problem. The washer looks okay, definitely not top of the line from a cosmetics standpoint.

It Looks Good

certifier813 1/13/2022

I have had it for about five days. I have washed about five loads. So far it has been running good. I am a little skeptical about the amount of water that it uses, which is very little. It barely covers the clothes. I want to give it a couple of more weeks. I did not really want a machine without a agitator but was convinced these are what is selling now.
