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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Very loud spin and "agitation"

Submitted by 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. Here is it for you: https://products.geappliances.com/appliance/gea-support-search-content?contentId=23061

Great auger style washer

Submitted by 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.

Works ok but some parts are not well made

Submitted by 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.

So Far, So Good

Submitted by 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.

SO FAR SO GOOD

Submitted by 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.

Submitted by 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.

Submitted by 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

Submitted by 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

Submitted by 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
