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.

Silentbob21 1/15/2021

I LOVE this washer. My old washer was extremely noisy and was a bit smaller than my new one. It simple to use and does a fantastic job of cleaning all my goods. Plus I really enjoy the jingle when turning it on/off and being able to see through the clear lid :)

Dominator2885 1/15/2021

Really digging this washer. It works great and runs efficiently. The load sensing feature is really great and helps save water. The only weird thing is to figure when its using the fabric softener. Not sure if it's always with each load or only if you press the deep rinse button that says when fabric softener is used.

TyRudy 1/13/2021

The washer is all that and more. The load capacity is very accommodating. The automatic balancing tub is a plus for sure. The dryer is state of the art, and very efficient. The load capacity is also a plus. The various drying cycles makes drying the clothes easy as 123.

Our Experience

Allanlb69 1/12/2021

I bought this washer about a year and a half ago. We thought it would be a good fit for us. It is noisy, doesn't clean our clothes like we like it to, and now it's making more noises than we like. Ready to have it looked at and/or replaced.

So many options

Gramma 61 1/5/2021

This washing machine has so many cleaning options. I'm so happy with the washer size, the way the cloths come clean. I didn't think I would find a new machine with an agitator. I hated front loader I had changed to a top loader. I couldn't find one at that time with an agitator.

Worst washing machine ever!

GigiSu 1/5/2021

Within 3 days of using machine, lights were broken and machine did not do what I programmed it to do. Not enough water for a load of laundry and the fill button did not make a difference at all as to the level of water;. I had to add 8 gallons of water, carried from my kitchen, just to get one load done. I have skin allergies and sensitivities and I have to use all free products and if my laundry is not rinsed properly I will have problems. When I did a load of whites the way that it is suggested in the manual and instructions, somehow the next load that I did had some clothes that were bleached and I had to throw them out! I am not at all satisfied with this product and I have a washing machine that I can not use and my laundry is piling up. We did call and the problems have not been solved.

Disappointed 2020

Disappointed 2020 1/1/2021

The machine leaks if I use hot water or if I use some cycles such as bulky items or deep fill. GE sent a tech who explain the reason for the leak is the vapor it creates when using hot water. He said that since the machine doesn't come with a damper the condensation created by high water temperatures is not collected inside the machine and leaks out. He suggested not using hot water or any of the cycles causing the leak. In my opinion that is not a reasonable solution because if I paid for those features I should be able ues without any issues. In addition, it does not wash the clothes properly. It does take enough water.

Stacey4545 12/31/2020

We purchased this washer on 12/3 and within days we started having issues. A few times now it did not spin out the heavy bedding. We had to redo the wash cycle multiple times. Due to Covid restrictions we are not able to return. So my hope is we don't have any more issues.

New technology is energy efficient

Ann987 12/30/2020

I'm getting used to this washer and its operations. So easy and very energy efficient. It balances the clothes while adjusting the water levels. Sometimes I think it needs more water. Just goes to show you how pre determined water levels are wasteful. The tub itself is big. I washed a queen size down comforter no problem. Spins it almost dry so the dryer is used less.

LCHW 12/26/2020

A very good washer. Would recommend. After first few washes , machine is quiet and movement more flexible. Clothes come out clean. Comforters wash well on bulky cycle. Delicate cycle is good. The normal spin cycle is sufficient. When mixing fabrics types. I noticed if a particular cycle is selected such as towels and a clothing item is included, the clothing item comes out twisted and wrinkled. Prefer deep fill and extra rinse options but these are options so you can choose. Dimensions are good for limited space.

Easy to operate, it tell the time of ending wash as you choose different cycles, like the see thru glass, a little taller than old one, but this has larger and deeper tub, I will say that the noise is standard and also the vibration is standard
