Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product was not worth the money This machine started leaking after the first year! It is currently 3 years old & makes an awful noise when it starts to agitate. I am currently looking for a new washing machine already!! 1/3/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by Piece of junk After less than two years the washer started making a terrible noise during agitation. The noise coincided with a precipitous drop in wash quality. I removed the sensor magnet from the lid just to see if it was agitating, and it was limp and pitiful. About half of the time it won't even finish the cycle...have to hit "Drain and Spin" and then run the rinse which often fails again. Did not want a GE product in the first place, but well meaning parents bought it for us. Next time I'll be more forceful. 3/14/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by If I could give zero stars I would Had this washer for a few years and it's been a total train wreck from the beginning. Leaks, screetches when agitating, and finally....transmission locked up the other day. Will never own another GE appliance again. There, I feel better. 5/16/13
Rated 1 out of 5 by 5 years and can not be repaired! A washer should last longer than five years and not be financially unadvisable to repair one day after it's SHORT one year warranty. 9/8/13
