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

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.

I love how quiet it is and how it tells me the water supply is shut off. Plus, the bin is huge. I am able to put loads together and do my wash in 2 loads instead of 3 or 4.

GE Agitator Washer

Bren28 2/16/2021

I love the agitator GE Washer! I have had a water saver for years and wanted to go back to an old fashioned agitator washer. I think it cleans better. I like the features that show specific laundry loads to select from. It is a good size that can handle small or heavy loads. It has medium noise which is to be expected but is not obnoxious.I would recommend it.

Best Washing machine ever

Shiquala 2/15/2021

I love how deep this washing machine is, I can do mostly all of my sheets at once, I can do towels and jeans with a big load and not have to do multiple loads. As a busy working mom and wife, the convenience of this machine is astounding!!

Why did I wait so long!

Happy Happy wife 2/10/2021

I wasn't happy with the basic washer the builder supplied in our new house and I kept complaining until I decided to upgrade. What a difference a good washer makes. Lots of different settings for I can finally soak when I need too. Add more water when I need too! Just completely happy with it. Love the fact that I can see it work with the glass top. The electronic board, you know time it will take and when you'll be done. Just LOVE it totally

SGiorgianni 2/5/2021

I love that I was able to choose the agitator over the impeller in this machine. I've used machines with impellers before and I feel like they just don't get my clothes clean enough. I have enough room in this machine to get plenty of laundry done.

Great Washing Machine

LuzerFace68 2/5/2021

So far so good! Been using this GE washer for almost 2 months now since my old machine died Thanksgiving day, and absolutely love it! This unit looks smaller, BUT holds so much more than my old one did, and cleans everything more thoroughly, and with less water. Still figuring out some of the many features, especially the sanitize feature, as this thing is loaded! Very happy so far.

Love this washer for these reasons: 1) It has an agitator 2) Allows user to add more water during cycle 3) Spins clothes dry (no heavy, wet laundry due to 'weak' spin cycle 4) Allows user to 'pause' cycle to add more clothes if necessary

okay

Anniejo 1/22/2021

It has the same problem as the dryer. The jingle that plays at end of cycle is too quiet to hear. I am still trying to figure out which cycle to use on bulky micro fleece sheets. Another problem is the fabric softener dispenser, even when I add water to thin the liquid, doesn't empty out.

Very Noisy!

TomD923 1/22/2021

Hard to believe an engineering team signed off on this! I would be shocked if any of them have this unit in their homes. The agitate cycle is so loud, sound deadening material is pretty inexpensive and pretty effective. GE, todays homes don't always have dark basements to run machines, they are one the 1st or second floor of the home. I owned prior GE products and came back because I thought they were better built/quality.

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.

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.

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.
