Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ge washer buyer beware!! junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! leaked and flooded laundryroom and basement. went to laundry mat and met a lady w/ same washer there because of same prob. 11/11/08
Rated 3 out of 5 by GE WVCH8800J Review Decent front loader, but of course, all front loaders MUST be leveled well prior to use. Any leakage reports that you read are usually because people do not make sure all 4 corners are level. Another factor is the height. I opted for the pedestal which brings the door height up perfectly, but of course also the center of gravity. All front loaders will sway a little bit, mine does as well, but not too bad. Washes clothes very well and almost dries them before hitting the dryer. Hard to beat the price, I got mine for $659 on sale at HH Gregg. 12/30/08
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Washer Make sure you remove the shipping bolts before use or else you'll think your house is about to explode 2/3/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Mac Daddy of Washers What a fabulous machine! It does handwash and heavy rugs with equal skill. Other reviews have complained about the cycle time, but clothes get REALLY clean. Also, it uses much less water than a top-loader. We couldn't be more pleased. We are also very pleased with AJ Madison. The price was $300 less than local dealers for the same machine. Delivery was made via truck to Minneapolis and took about a week from the date of order. The machine arrived in perfect condition and worked right away. 2/12/09
