****The trouble with the reviews given for this washer is that most are written by people who JUST BOUGHT the appliance or who have only owned it for a very short time.**** Yes, I too did a lot of research when needing a washer in January 2007 and thought this machine was perfect! And it was.......for less than 6 years, when we had 2 inches of water on the entire first floor of our house from a leak in the washer's tub. The repairman told us the leak was caused by a part that controlled the amount of water going into the tub. To have this issue fixed would have cost us $329.00; and having it fixed would in no way guarantees that a leak would not happen again in the future (per the repairman). He was surprised when we told him that the washer was under 6 years old. He told us that most washers have an average lifespan of about 10 years but did let us know that he repairs a large amount of GE appliances. Since we had spent $134.00 already for the repair visit, we felt that we would invest the $329.00 in a new washer instead (but not another GE brand!). The funny thing is that I kept coming back to this machine when seaching for a new one!!! The short time the machine DID work properly, I loved it! I agree with the other comments that it was very quiet when washing and I liked that I could control how much water was needed, unlike most of the washers now on the market. We just bought an LG high efficiency (did not want high efficiency but really did not have a choice since almost all but the smallest washers are HE) and hope this machine lasts longer than 6 years. We have owned other LG appliances and have been very happy with how long all of them have lasted, not to mention how energy efficient they are. ****To summerize; if you buy this washer, enjoy it for the short time it does work.****

I wouldn't purchase again...
Just an ok product. Loud during spin cycle. I wouldn't purchase again.

GE Washer GTWN2800D
This washer does not get clothes clean. It doesn't agitate strong enough to do one bit of good. Sure, I like the quite, but I'd rather have clean clothes. I put a load of baby things in and a receiving blanket came out still folded.... makes me very angry

A good purchase
A quiet machine compared to our 20 year old model which it replaced. Washes just fine.
By Homeowner on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2013
hot wash with cold selected
this machine has performed great.With first wash on cold setting the machine was hot to touch. We discoveried the installers had reversed the hot and cold connections. So just a warning. Am able to wash a Queen size quilt with no problems.

Only lasted 8 months
We first bought our washer and drier last august. We wanted one without the crazy gadgets. When the guys from Home Depot delivered the units, and plugged them in for the first time, the drier made a horrible grinding noise. The delivery guy told me this is not normal and he would have another unit delivered right away. 6 days later our drier finally arrived and worked as designed. Fast forward 8 months..... Our washer broke. The drum has come loose and dropped about 3 inches. It was on "spin" and quite literally banged its way around our laundry room and up against the drier. Now the drier will not run. I know they are both still under warranty but that is horrible craftsmanship. We only use them about 2 times per week. I am currently waiting to see how the warranty end of this goes. I hope this review helps someone out there.

I am really enjoying my new GE washing machine. it is quiet, doesn't vibrate and cleans my clothes very well. It seems to wash and rinse in a gentler manner than other machines. It was delivered within 48 hours and the delivery guys couldn't have been nicer or quicker.
By cvarner on Home Depot - Jun 6, 2013
I just got this machine today. I ran 2 loads through and it was VERY loud during the spin cycle. I tried rearranging the clothes inside but it was still very loud. I ran a cycle with no clothes to test it and it was much more quiet that way. I am not sure what to think but I can't imagine it lasting long the way it shakes and shimmies.
By jpASTIAN on Home Depot - Jun 4, 2013
Just what I needed
Washer actually uses a full tub of water so my clothes will get clean. I sold a new HE Whirlpool washer because it did not use enough water to get my clothes clean.
By Pasorider on Home Depot - May 28, 2013
A very good product.
Great washer. Plenty of options and very quiet operation. Con: No end of cycle sound.

By steve on Home Depot - May 28, 2013
we are very happy with this washer.
Having bought the matching dryer in 2012 (december ) we had no problem deciding on which washer to buy. The pair are great and watching online prices gave us the best deal.Free delivery and setup.
By mikey on Home Depot - May 21, 2013
Better than I thought!
After much research, I thought I'd purchased a good washer... Well, it's a GREAT washer! Quiet, simple to use & is really big inside. It has enough cycles but I miss having a cycle for my delicates. Outside of that, it is just perfect!
By maria on Home Depot - May 20, 2013
Excellent price and all the features I needed!
Great product and delivery was fast. Easy to use and holds so much laundry.
By Genny on Home Depot - May 14, 2013
Seems to work fine. Great basic washer
Upgraded from a very old other brand. The washer drum is massive! We do half as many loads now. Seems to clean very well and runs quietly. If you wash dress clothes (permanent press items like dress pants) and don't use the permanent press cycle, you will be ironing. It will wrinkle them severely. Handles blankets, pillows, etc. with room to spare.
By Davis on Home Depot - May 14, 2013
runs quiet! everything we needed in dire emergency when the 7-year old GE wash machine went out! Great Purchase!

I work on washers and dryers for a living - JUNK
These machines are simply junk. Parts for repairs are very expensive for GEs also. Steer clear of these. It may last you 2 to 3 years if you are lucky. Also, try not to buy anything that is controlled by computer boards. By a top loader with an analog timer. Speed Queen is the best, and I believe the only one made in the USA.
By Repairman on Home Depot - Apr 25, 2013
This washer works fine. You do hear it chugging along as it washes. It doesn't seem to have a fast setting. Everytime I look, it is going slow. But, the cloths are clean at the end so I guess who cares how fast it aggitates. The capacity is huge but I try to do two smaller loads instead of a giant load cause we broke our last machine by overloading it and breaking the agitator.
By cbuohio on Home Depot - Apr 25, 2013
I love my new washer, it is so quiet you hardly know it is on. The drum is large, I washed my queen comforter with no problem. I was skeptical because of the price, but boy was I surprised. The delivery was a breeze, within 10 minutes it was hooked up and ready.
By retired1 on Home Depot - Apr 16, 2013
More than enough special features
We bought this machine a year ago. I've used it long enough to know that I'm more than happy with how it operates , it is quiet , and efficient. I've had no problems with it and it comes with enough wash choices to clean anything. I love the stainless steel barrel tub and it spins every thing almost dry. We are so happy with it we are buying one for a wedding present for my son, and a dryer too!
By Patti on Home Depot - Apr 12, 2013
can not handle handle a large load of cloths
although the washer says it can handle a small, medium or large load, it can not. the larger the load, the cloths do not rinse completly. still come out soapy and the water does not completely drain from it. also, if there is one sweatshirt in a load, i have to turn off the machine to redistribute the weight in the spin cycle. otherwise, the machine rocks back and forth completely moving the machine across the floor.
By bruno on Home Depot - Apr 2, 2013
Great machine for the money.
Install was done professionally and GE washer has worked flawlessly.

GE Washing Machine
We are thrilled with our purchase. The Washing Machine is quiet, fast, and with the stainless steel drum always clean.
By Topher on Home Depot - Mar 12, 2013
This product gets the clothes washed fast and clean.
I just purchased this washer and love how quiet and fast the clothes are done. The only thing I miss is the gentle cycle for certain fabrics. Thanks GE for an efficent washer at an affordable price.
By retired on Home Depot - Mar 2, 2013
I am satisfied with this washer.
This machine replaces a 24 year old washer that still worked fine, but was leaking a bit. I was advised by GE that parts would not be available. I set out to find a replacement and this seems to fit the bill. I did want a stainless tub and this has one. It is a no frills machine, uses regular detergent and has simple settings. It is quiet, washes well, and does not tangle the clothes. It is not rated energy efficient which does not matter to me. I would have liked a delicate setting, but I found that the permanent press cycle is just fine. A regular cycle completes in under 40 minutes. It has a very deep tub, and a short person might have difficulty reaching everything. But it does make for a very large capacity. I did have a terrible experience with Home Depot installation. None of these experiences have anything to do with the machine. First, the installers could not detach the hoses from the valves and they had to return after I had to have a plumber install new valves. When they finally came back to install they hooked the cold hose up to the hot water and the hot hose up to the cold water and I had to get GE service to come to switch the hoses. I could not believe they made such a mistake. Bottom line is I am very satisfied with this machine after using it about five times.

BUY ONLY IF YOU LIKE WET CLOTHES
CLOTHES WERE WET AND HEAVY AT END OF CYCLE. NO WAY TO ADJUST SPIN. REPAIR SAID IT OPERATED AS IT WAS DESIGNED. TOOK DRYER 2+ CYCLES TO DRY.
By Jiggsy on Home Depot - Feb 17, 2013
This produce works good
It works great... it has a squeeky noise when it's washing. sounds like a dog from a distance whinning and when it's about to change cycles it sounds like a dog barking. It is faint low whining sound. It's definately washes quieter than our old washer. I would recomend if you don't mind the little noise. Our washer and dryer is near our living room so we slightly hear it. We purchased this brand/model because we had our previous exact similar brand and features on our previous washer and it lasted at least 15+ years.

Mine had a factory defect, but very good when fixed
This is an update to my 3-star review of Jan. 31, 2013, titled "Washes Well, but 'Shake, Rattle and Roll.' " I could not find a way to include this update with the original review. It turns out that our machine had a factory defect. This is a classic type of GE washer that uses a concrete, or cinder block counterweight located in the base behind the motor housing. The block is held down by an 8" x 1" rectangular plate, which is held in place by two threaded bolts approximately 5-inches long. Apparently someone in the factory did not tighten down the bolts. After a few washes, we began to get the a rattling sound which became worse if the load was even slightly imbalanced. At first, my wife and I thought that we could correct it by very carefully balancing the load. It became a sort of challenge to reload the clothing items when the spin went wild, and keep trying until you could quiet it. But as time went on, it became impossible to stop the loud banging no matter how you rearranged the clothes. I suspect what was happening was that the hold-down plate was getting looser. Probably one hold-down bolt came free, and then both. Finally it reached a point where the washer would not get up to speed on spin cycle. It tried to rev up, but when then stop itself, almost as if the brake was getting activated. I called the service department, and the lady had me unplug for a minute and replug to allow the machine to reset. It didn't accomplish the purpose, so she scheduled a service appointment. While waiting for the service call, I decided to look up the problem online. I found some diagrams on Appliance Parts Pros for the GTWN3000, which is similar. It showed the counterweight and a slightly different hold-down plate with only one bolt. A video at this or another site showed me how simple it was to remove the front cover and look inside. All you do is press in a putty knife or other thin blade into the crevice at the top of the front panel, a few inches from each edge. That releases the spring clip on each side, and allows the panel to tilt forward. You then lift the panel off the two protruding prongs at the bottom, and have clear access to the innards. On looking inside, the first thing I found was the 8" x 1" hold-down plate. It was sitting right next to the motor. At the time, I didn't know what it was. But leaving it in place, and running the spin cycle, I saw that the motor was arcing. After I unplugged the machine and removed the plate, the spin cycle came up to speed. However the shake, rattle and roll was still there. By reaching inside to the counterweight block (after the machine was stopped and unplugged, of course), I could feel that the block was entirely free to move. Nothing was holding it down. When I ran the spin cycle with the front open, I could easily see the block jumping up and down, about 2 inches up, as the spin came up to speed. I assumed that the 8" x 1" rectangular plate served as the hold down in this model, although the diagram I found showed a different part held by only one bolt. Although I could have tried to fix it, I decided to let the repair man handle it so as not to risk voiding the warranty. I put the plate back where I found it, so he could see how it was, and went to close up the front panel. As I did so, I discovered that a 5-inch long, black threaded bolt was sitting in the crevice at the bottom of the panel. I left that in place as well for the warranty repair man to handle. When the repairman called, we had suffered a widespread power outage, but after I told him what the problem was, he understood that it would not require electricity to deduce the problem, and came right over. The GE repairman was very competent, and saw what I had seen. He said it didn't happen too often, but he'd seen the problem before. He guessed, as I did, that someone in the factory had failed to tighten the hold-down bolts. He took off the motor and found the second hold-down bolt laying flat underneath the place where the motor housing sits. Both of the bolts had come loose! He decided to order a new motor, in case the original had been damaged from the arcing. The threads in the base that contain the hold down bolts appeared damaged to him, so he instead ordered equivalent-sized threaded bolts, with lock washers, and nuts that would pass through the threaded holes and tighten to the underside of the base. When he came back three days later with the parts, it all went together quickly, and the washer ran smoothly on spin cycle. I asked to him to check out the shock absorber struts as well, in case there was any damage. He found none. He also checked the balance ring, which is a rubber ring containing a saline solution that runs around the top of the wash tub. If there is an imbalance, it throws the weight of the water to the opposite side to counterbalance it. We have done three loads since and all is well. We bought this machine because it is the only model we could find that still uses the old-fashioned method of washing with water. The new High Efficiency models are designed to minimize water use, which is not an issue in our area. But our experience has been that the water saving comes at the expense of a clean fresh smell. There is invariable some detergent left in the clothes after completion of the wash cycles. The repairman agreed, and told us that some of the newer models are even worse in this direction, as they do not spin before the rinse cycle, leaving more dirty wash water residue in the clothes when it comes time to rinse. He told us that he did a transmission repair on his own 10-year old washer, rather than having to buy one of the new high-efficiency models. If you are sensitive to the smell of soap residue that you may get with a High Efficiency machine, or just prefer the old fashioned wash that uses more water, I recommend this machine. It is a tried and true style of washer, that has been around for many years. GE honored their warranty. They could have done better, in the first place, by having better quality control in the factory. And in the second place, by training their telephone consumer advisers to be aware of this problem. It is unfortunately fairly common, as you can see by reading the customer reviews on the product. If I bought such a machine again, the first thing I would do would be to open up the front panel and look to see if the counterweight were properly bolted down.
By SiteReader on Home Depot - Feb 14, 2013
This washer is quiet, simple controls, and huge capacity compared to footprint.
I did lots of research based on features and then decided to purchase based on customer reviews. This washer is exactly what we needed, and at a great price.

Washes well, but . . . "Shake, Rattle, and Roll"
We have had this washer for five months now, running it about six time per week. We bought it, because it was the only model we could find that allows you to select the water level, and uses the old system of washing with a lot of water. The washer is quieter than our old Kenmore Series 80 top loader, and washes as well or better. However, when it comes to spin cycle, it is a real problem. Unless the load is perfectly balanced, the washer starts shaking and rattling to the point you are afraid it will self-destruct. By learning to balance the load very carefully, we have eliminated the problem in the majority of washes, but imbalance episodes still occur more than once a week. When the rattle starts, you have to drop whatever you're doing, rush to the machine and push in the dial or lift the lid to stop the fast spin. Then you redistribute the wet clothes to try to get a better balance, start the spin cycle again, and sometimes repeat this two or three times until you get a smooth spin. If you are washing only one heavy item, like a small rug after the cat has an accident, it is impossible to get a smooth spin. Naturally, we have called the consumer service department at GE about the problem. On one call, we got a very helpful young man who uses the washer himself and experiences the same problem. He suggested dropping the clothes loosely into the wash basket, rather than trying to spread them out around the agitator in an attempt to balance it. His suggestion helped somewhat, but we still get the shake, rattle, and roll very often. The relative weight of clothing, when wet as compared to dry, can vary a lot depending upon the absorbency of the material. When you get used to how much water your various items of clothing absorb, it helps you in arranging the load. But, as noted, we still run into imbalance problems. As this is the only washer in current production that we know of that allows you to use a lot of water, we put up with it. The manufacturer could easily solve the problem by building in an adjustable spin speed. The specifications indicate a fast 630 RPM spin, which gets the clothes very dry, but at the cost of your nerves when the load is not balanced. A dial with a low, medium, and high spin speed would allow you to correct for imbalance problems by reducing the spin speed when the shake events occur. I do hope GE will listen and act. I fear, however, that this model may bite the dust, and we will be left with only the super water-saving models that do not wash as well. I can understand the need for these in regions where water is scarce and costly. But here in Cape Cod, we get 55 inches of rainfall a year. The water we use in the washer goes back in the ground, and is recycled. We do not use any more detergent than with any other washer, and probably less, because the water does the washing. Because of dilution effects, I suspect we are polluting less with this type of washer than the water-saving models.

Quiet, huge, stainless steel
I didn't realize when I ordered it just how big it was - not that it's physically large, it's that 3.9 cu ft can accommodate a lot of clothes. It's also incredibly silent compared to other machines. I like that it has everything I deem essential in a washing machine: stainless steel drum, water temperature settings, and water capacity settings.
By anonymousHDreview on Home Depot - Jan 29, 2013
Huge capacity, quiet machine.
This is such a quiet machine, I had to turn my dryer off to be sure that it was running. Huge capacity easily handles a twin comforter. I may try a queen size in there next. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a gentle cycle. Overall I'm very pleased.
By Reginanrusty on Home Depot - Jan 29, 2013
Does an excellent job washing, easy to operate, and VERY quiet.

One of the last washers that doesn't try to think for you!
I had a similar washer for 4 years that got damaged during a move and started making clunking noises. I researched online and read a whole lot of reviews before deciding on this washer. There were many negative comments about the HE washers that tell you how much water they think you should have in a load. Also, I didn't want a locking lid that wouldn't let you add clothes once the cycle started. This washer is great. I can put in however much water I want per load and I can add clothes while it is filling and after it starts washing. If you want an extra rinse you can set it to "Power Rinse" as if you were adding fabric softener. It has multiple settings to choose from for the amount of water for each particular load. I'm glad I was able to get this machine before the government made all of them HE. (High Efficiency) The only negative is another thing we can thank the government for. If you set the water temperature to "hot", it's pretty hot, but some cold is added to it. If you set it to "warm" it's not warm, but cool. If you want lukewarm you have to set it part of the time on hot, then part of the time on warm.
By nvlw on Home Depot - Jan 27, 2013
Great old style washer!
We ordered this dryer & matching washer because it has dial type knobs instead of pushbuttons, which wear out & are expensive to replace, & because the washer has a tall agitator and a deep stainless steel tub for better cleaning of large loads & you can control the water level up to a full tub of water, & get a 2nd good rinse, and the prior reviews were mostly excellent, & it is a pretty set, & it does NOT need special expensive soap; nor is it prone to mold, like HE [high efficiency] or energy-star washers, & they were on sale. On our first dryer load, the drum inside the dryer began to bang against the sides of the dryer's metal outsides! Apparently at the USA factory, not all bolts holding the drum in place were tightened well. The banging/screeching consistently became worse on that load and 2 more loads we tried. So the next day we called the HDepot store manager and he graciously agreed to order us a new replacement dryer & THAT DAY 2 of his best & friendliest employees came out and took the defective new dryer away and installed a loaner dryer for the 3 weeks it will take to get a replacement! The washer is quiet, cleans clothes well, does not spin them super dry, but just as dry as our 30-year old Kmr washer did prior to its demise. It takes just 40 minutes to do the largest longest wash load. We got the HDepot 5-year warranty, since it costs way less than anybody else's extended warranty & is far better than all others, even GE's!
By 72yearsxperience on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013
Let me start off by saying I read the other reviews. Some people complained the noise. This is a excellent washer. My last washer was a older model and was very loud during the wash and spin cycle. This wash is very quiet during the wash cycle, when I first did a load of laundry I didn't know it was washing it was so quiet. You do hear clicks but when it is changing cycles. That's nothing if you had a older washer. The tube size is very large and is a plus.
By raerae on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013
Only been in use for 1 month so far...
So we're not sure about efficiency & value YET... Will say the machine makes some weird noises when in operation!! As per the manual & the manufacturer web site videos, it's "normal"!! (Wave Action cleaning...) so it just pivots the actuator 2-3" in 1 direction while the Tub rotates probably the same 2-3" in the opposite direction then nothing... silence, Until that is, it decides to create another "wave of cleaning action" a few mins later! Machine is in a rental property & the tenant, while not used to these new fangled machines, has no complains about the cleanliness of his cloths so I guess we're OK.
By Fidget on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013
Broke in 6 months; GE service takes a week
Bought last June and broke today. As soon as I started the cycle, there was a grinding noise and water leaked onto the floor. It's only six month old! And, called GE to schedule service, was told the earliest would be a week from now! Are you kidding me? I have two kids and we do laundry three or four times a week! Very very disappointed by the product and service!
By Katyhouse on Home Depot - Jan 21, 2013
Disappointed - Broke after 4 months light use.
I suspect I purchased a lemon. The cinder block attached to the base to counter balance the spinner broke away according to the repairman. Home Depot referred me to the manufacturer GE. The cost to repair the washer would have cost GE more than that to replace it so GE are sending a new one. I really hope this one works OK.
By on Home Depot - Jan 15, 2013
Wow! Quiet, unbelievable capacity and does a great job.
Does a great job. Fast, quiet. I'm kind of short. Wonder if someday it will be to deep for me reach clothes at the bottom.
By DEBBIE on Home Depot - Jan 15, 2013
Beautiful SS Washer
Stainless Steel Basin; Large capacity unit with a smaller traditional size than most new units.
By Bill on Home Depot - Jan 1, 2013
Clothes get knotted up in the wringer.....and it does not always get all or enough water out of the clothes
The clothes do not get enough of the water out of them by the end of the cycle. The get knotted up in the wringer and are left in a knotted bunch.
By sandy64 on Home Depot - Nov 23, 2012
I Like It!
After having an old school washer I bought used and had for ten years, I decided to get one with a larger capacity drum. I bought a Bravos HE washer with no agitator so I could wash my comforter. I did not like it from day one. My clothes came out more wrinkled, and the comforter was terribly wrinkled, so I still had to take it to the laundry mat. After less than 3 years, the bearings went out and it started leaking everywhere. Since the cost to repair it was half what I paid for it, Here was my chance to get a new washer. I went old school. I am very happy with this washer that I can choose how much water, etc. It is extremely quiet. No more fancy bells and whistles for me! I just want to wash my clothes. Here's hoping it lasts more than 3 years.
By nacny on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2012
Simple and does the job!
The washer is great. It is big with a stainless steel inner and it is very quiet. My kids can do their own laundry too. It is simple, no whistle and bells but does the job. It cleans my clothes well. I have two boys in high school sports and it gets their uniforms clean.
By 4MAS on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2012
Great Washer - Cool spin cycle :P
Love the stainless steel tub... This thing is quiet compared to my old washer. You can hardly hear it run through the wash cycles... It's a direct drive so there's no transmission like in older washers to fail. The spin cycle, on the other hand sounds like a turbine! I believe it's a 650 RPM spin and it sounds like it! What's cool, is that it starts slow and then progressively ramps up as the cycle continues.
By devereiii on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2012
this product dosen't work right, I need to exchage it.
washer too noisy, it makes a noise that it is not supposed to make. I had not used the washer yet because came with a default.
By Reinaldo on Home Depot - Nov 13, 2012
Want simple, get simple
"They don't make them like they used to" and "they don't make them to last" seem to be key when dealing with appliances these days. I replaced my washer of 20+ years with one that lasted 10 years...but had 3 service calls, the last of which was a "run it til it dies" fix. Well, it died but of a different problem. The replacement shopping was exhausting. I wanted simple, not a touch pad, easy to operate...I just want clean clothes. Out of annoyance with the process bought this model...simple and not expensive (since I'm counting on it lasting less than 5 years which seems to be the norm now). It's fine. But I will definitely agree with other reviewers in that it is LOUD. I can live with that. It seems a little cheap on the quality side (tinny) and I'm not holding my breath for the pull-dial start knob to last long, again seems cheap. Had to laugh first time I heard the spin cycle as other reviews said it sounded like a plane taking off...yep, it does. Not much else to add. Wanted simple, got simple.
By Cathy on Home Depot - Nov 10, 2012
Reading the others reviews made up my mind
really chose this washer by the consumer reviews, not necc.price. cant beat the performance. one previous reviewer wrote," now my wash seems softer and fluffier if thats possible," I thought "yea, sure" but this gets my clothes clean and is way more kind to them. I think he may be right! control panel / dial could be a bit more sturdier (flexes a bit)
By matt on Home Depot - Nov 6, 2012
I like the large tub.
The tub is Stainless Steel and has a 3.9 Cu.ft. capacity.
By nethog on Home Depot - Nov 6, 2012
When our washing machine finally died a few weeks back, we weren't quite at the place financially to purchase what we wanted. We were going to have to buy something really cheap to get us through until we could finish saving up for that top of the line washer/dryer set we so desperately wanted and needed. So I got online & did some research and settled on the GE3.9 DOE cu. ft. Stainless Steel Capacity Washer. After a few weeks, the PROS are: it is a great buy for what you get. It does a great job, it's pretty quiet, it has a good capacity. It also has a lot of features that we haven't even figured out how to use yet. The only CON is: The opening seems much tinier than what I thought it would be for a 3.9 Cu. Ft. washing machine. And it's really deep, making it difficult to get the clothes at the bottom after they're done washing. Then again, I did buy it completely online, site unseeen.

After 4+ years still going great job with no problems
Does what I want it to do - cleans small to super large loads very quietly - and does it the way I want it to do it - simply, allowing me to choose water level, in particular. Has just the right number of features to be uncomplicated yet get everything really clean - from heavy dirt impacted garden overalls to big fluffy comforters to the sheerest lacey curtains. With electromagnetic controls everything is easy and simple, nothing breaks and the machine operates efficiently all the time - never a problem with balance or temperature. Exceptionally quiet. Not bad at all on energy consumption, even though not Energy Star.

This product is missing features I would have liked.
I do not like how this washer doesn't spin on the rinse cycle, nor all the pauses where the washer basically does nothing. Water just drains out on the rinse cycle- like the old broken washer I just got rid of- instead of spinning. Also, like all washes delivered today seem to be; it does not come with hoses, and the drain hose is thin cheap plastic.

It's a washing machine
Don't leave unattended during spin cycles as it goes out of balance often,not all the time.
By chas on Home Depot - Nov 2, 2012
This machine is good basic washer. No frills however gets the job done.
Washer works just fine, nothing fancy. Basic wash and done.
By Sammy on Home Depot - Oct 30, 2012
This washer is far from the most feature laden, or most expensive, machine. It is, however, a very good deal and seems to be doing a nice job of cleaning our clothes. After reading so many bad reviews of the high-efficiency machines, it was nice to find a machine that, so far, has provided solid, reliable service. If your idea of a status symbol is to have a washing machine with bells, whistles and a glass front door, this is not for you. If you just want clean clothes and minimize your spending, give this washer a try. Oh, the HD delivery people were professional.

Goes out of balance with large loads on spin cycle
I have had this washer for about 3 months and lately have had trouble balancing large loads during the spin cycle. Everything works fine until the last spin cycle and the washer starts making a horrible racket as it goes out of balance. Rearranging the large items so it will resume spinning is difficult and I have had to just remove the items and put them into the dryer without the water being fully extracted. I haven't had trouble with lighter weight items, just things like sweat clothes, sheets, and blankets. I am expecting this washer to break down at any time because of the spin cycle. I had previously owned a GE washing machine for 21 years and it had never needed service. I replaced it with this washer and wish I could have bought a new one that was like the old one. I really like the large capacity of this washing machine and it is quiet when it doesn't go out of balance on the spin cycle. I can also control the water level and temperature and it is possible to stop it in mid-cycle to soak things. It is hard on items washed for a full length cycle. I have worked around that by using a shorter cycle and stopping the machine so the clothes soak instead of agitating. I am hoping that it will be as reliable as my old GE but time will tell.

This washer has just the right features for my use.
This washer is very well made. It runs quiet, Is easy to set, and washes laundry very clean. Big enough to do large blankets and comforters. Delivery was fast. I am very happy with this washer.

Significantly larger tub than my old washer
This machine is VERY quiet, as so many others have said. The tub is very large. It is deeper than my old machine, so as I short person I really have to stretch to get the clothes out. I was interested in seeing the agitation action, but the machine stops when you lift the lid even in the wash cycle; a safety feature I guess. This machine does NOT spin the clothes as dry as my old machine. Since this would mean more time in the dryer, I give clothes an extra spin before putting in the dryer. This is especially noticeable with towels. I figure the energy used for the extra spin is less than would be used by extra drying time. By the way, this large tub will take 6 or 7 bath towels at a time, possibly more. I'm not convinced that this machine gets clothes as clean as my old washer, either due to the agitation action or use of less water? Seems a tiny bit narrower in exterior dimensions than the old washer; that is not a bad thing Energy rating says that this washer should use a lot less electricity than my old one. Not sure of that due to the extra spin I feel I need to use.
By Granny67 on Home Depot - Oct 16, 2012
The features on this machine are everything I need in a washer. l am very happy with the cleaning abilities....it does an exc
I was leary when they delivered my machine. It is smaller than my previous machine, but when I looked closer, I was surprised at the size of the tub. To sum it up, it does an excellent job. I washed a blanket that was too big for my Neptune and did a beautiful job. I was convinced then
By busyman on Home Depot - Oct 16, 2012
skeptical but pleasantly surprised
When they installed this washer- they run it to make sure everything is working. It was loud! It worried me alot-not sure I wanted it. When I put in my first load- I was pleasantly surprised to "NOT" hear it working. The loads were cleaned in less time than my last washer even though it was the same cycle used. The clothes werent as "heavy" (spun more water out of clothes) as before. The only "con" is- there is no end of cycle buzzer. It is the same size as my last washer but looks bigger. No problems washing big loads. I would suggest the sellers or manufacturer change how they word their description. Example: Cotton wash cycle- in their description they say each part of the total wash cycle is a cycle- wash, rinse, spin is 3 cycles when actually it is one wash cycle. This way they make you think you are getting many cycles. When it says 13 cycles- you are only getting 3 or 4 actual cycles. I count each complete wash cycle as 1 not 3 or 4. The washer is fantastic! Just had to dig to get correct info because the specs on the washer were different than what is said on features page. AGAIN- the washer is great- just not the way they explain it.
By granny on Home Depot - Oct 16, 2012
Made in the usa and it does the job
So far so good and it does the job without any fuss and the clothes come out clean and spun like they should be.
By Volare on Home Depot - Oct 8, 2012
Junk and they know it
The motor went out after only 2 months! We called GE and they said "it has happened A LOT with this model". So, why keep selling a washer which they know has issues? They had a technician come out and replace the motor. It worked 1x and had same issue. After a few more calls to GE, GE is replacing the washer with another comparable one of our choice.
By NCYoungville on Home Depot - Oct 7, 2012
I love this machine, it gets our clothes clean without all the extra features that we did not care about.
By mew41483 on Home Depot - Oct 2, 2012
Basic features. Nothing fancy. Does what it is supposed to do.
By Juju on Home Depot - Oct 2, 2012
So Far I like it
Before I purchased this Washer, I read all of the Review's,, and since they were so good,, that helped make it easier for me to choose this model. So far so good. Only used for about 3 weeks,, but I like it. Spins the Water out of the cloth's better than my older model GE which make's it easier and faster for the dryer, has a Water saving feature, so far spins without walking, holds more cloths than my old washer, gets the cloth's clean. This one replaced a GE washer that I got back in mid 90's. If this one lasts as long and keeps performing like it is now,, I'll be a happy camper. Joe
By JoeM on Home Depot - Sep 29, 2012
I think its a great product.
Its very quiet. It also has a larger capcity than the machine it replaced.
By Bill on Home Depot - Sep 25, 2012
I have a lemon or it's a lousy product
I have not been able to complete one wash without this product making a lot of noise during the wash and rinse cycles, like there's an industrial machine shop or steel mill under the hood. The only time I heard anything like the noise that this washer is generating was the last time I used my Whirlpool Cabrio when it died. Just placed another service call, and I hope they can fix or replace it. I'm scared to use it! Other than the noise, the wash comes out well, and the spin cycle is terrific. Also, I didn't realize how bare bones this machine is. Stuff that I took for granted with the machine I had before my Cabrio, a bare bones model White-Westinghouse, at least had an end of cycle buzzer. Wish the new electronic version of this machine was available when I purchased this. Keeping my fingers crossed and praying for speedy resolution. If I was washing for a family, I would be climbing the walls about now!
By MrMRD on Home Depot - Sep 24, 2012
The washer so far has preformed great
Have only had for two weeks, but so far very satisfied with the washer.
By leec on Home Depot - Sep 22, 2012
Gets the job done at an affordable price
Totally happy with this product. Not a bad thing to say. I wanted something that was inexpensive and got the job done, so it was just what I was looking for.
By julie on Home Depot - Sep 18, 2012
Pretty average so far.
Our 8 year old Maytag went kaput so a new washer was in order. 8 years out of a Maytag is pretty sad so I went looking for products not made by Whirlpool. This washer was on sale and all we wanted was a simple no nonsense washer. This is it. It's quiet and it has a stainless tub (which our Maytag didn't have) and is able to hold as much laundry at one time as we need. In fact it will hold my wife's large comforter quite easily. The only thing that worried me was the agitator action, it seems pretty weak and slow but so far it gets the clothes clean so I really have no complaints there. After 3 weeks, I like this washer much better than our old one because it does the job quieter, has no electronic gimmicks to mess up and is getting the job done. A simple no frills washer. So far good. I hope it lasts longer than our old one.
By Gdaddy on Home Depot - Sep 18, 2012
Would definitely recommend to others...
Not the snazziest model out there...just clean and simple. HUGE drum....fits my Queen comforters with absolutely no problem. Miss some of the other feature my Energy Star Front Loader Duet had, but overall - lovin' it!
By bezeley on Home Depot - Sep 18, 2012
very satisfied with purchase. looked everywhere for washer that I could control water level on.
Unfortunately very hard to find a plain washer. This one seems perfect.
By katiesmom on Home Depot - Sep 18, 2012
Very happy with this washer!
Didn't know what to buy for my mother when her machine died. She doesn't do a ton of laundry, but just needed a good dependable, and quiet (since we just moved her washer/dryer to the main floor of the house from the basement) machine. Didn't want to spend an arm and a leg, so read the reviews on this machine. This machine holds A LOT of clothes! We have already done her bed comforter....which she was not able to fit in her old machine. Runs extremely quietly, which is wonderful. Clothes are clean....dials and knobs are easy for her to read and operate (nothing digital, which was a requirement also for her). And the price can't be beat.
By Cubby on Home Depot - Sep 18, 2012
quiet, big drum, fast service
I couldn't be happier with this washer. It is super quiet. When I did my first wash, I thought something was wrong and went to the basement because I thought it had stopped working but it was just so quiet I couldn't hear it! It has a nice large drum that will hold my king size comforters easily. I haven't had anything get stuck under the agitator like someone mentioned. It doesn't use as much water which I hope will save me some money in the future. I like that you can also open it whenever and add more clothes in if you forgot. Its a great purchase and my delivery went perfectly. They were here in the first half hour of my delivery time and were efficient and polite. I have recommended home depot to everyone!
By lynds on Home Depot - Sep 15, 2012
Quiet machine, but does the job!
Only had the machine for a few weeks, so can't comment on longevity. But the machine is very quiet, which makes you think it's not cleaning the clothes well, but everything has come out clean, and smelling good. Wasn't looking for a machine that had all the bells and whistles, just a machine that cleans my clothes. I am thus far happy with my purchase.
By Nancet on Home Depot - Sep 11, 2012
Unless you are standing RIGHT NEXT to this washer you cannot hear it. We just switched from a Whirlpool HE w/d set to these, and I'm telling you I couldn't be happier. The HE one didn't have an agitator and it didn't get the clothes clean. These have gone over and above any of my expectations, and for the price you couldn't find a better deal.

Incredible Value for a Nice Machine
This GE washer has a deep stainless steel tub that holds a large amount of clothes. Our laundry comes out cleaner and dryer than with our old Whirlpool. There are also multiple fabric settings, load levels and both bleach and fabric softener dispensers. I like to do laundry, so I am picky about our machines. This GE washer fits the bill, and then some!
By Sheila on Home Depot - Sep 11, 2012
I have had this washer for a short time...But so far I LOVE IT...my normal large load is now a medium inside this washer. I can wash my king size comforter without any problems. Nothing catches to the agitator....My whites are white and my brights are bright....
By HollyRI on Home Depot - Sep 11, 2012
Great dyer for all clothes.
Love the large features this dyer has. Also good for all my king size sheets. The come our almost wrinkle free. Also like all the features it has.

It's a washer...
I was looking for a washer that would clean clothes for my family of four. I needed a fairly large load size and the ability to choose different levels of wash. This washer does those things. I read all of the reviews before purchasing. I don't remember reading anything about how it sounds-to me-when washing. Several reviews even said it is VERY quiet. I would not say that. It sounds pretty comparable to the washer I replaced, which was 10 years old. When it aggitates, I sometimes wonder if it is doing it enough, it is VERY quiet during that cycle. So quiet the only sound you can hear is of the water sloshing. However, on the spin cycle, it sounds like a small aircraft landing in my laundry room. As have EVERY washer I have ever known. I haven't had any issues with ripped clothing or the agitator yet- but I am being extra careful in my placement. One PRO for the washer- I can wash so many clothes now that it won't be long before I will be having to buy another dryer. I can wash bigger load than I can dry. :) If I can get 10 years out of this one too, then I will be happy.

Lots of features Great Value
Upgraded from 17 yr old Amana washer. This washer is fantastic. The agitator works well yet is quiet. The ridges on the tub help the spin cycle get your clothes nearly dry right out of the washer. Helps cut way down on your overall dry time/expense. There are tons of settings and features for all types of cleaning cycles you could need. The powerwash feature is great when you're using fabric softener to ensure all the softener gets dissolved and rinsed away rather than getting spots left on your clothes. Overall great features with a great price tag.
By CommonMan on Home Depot - Sep 4, 2012
We had a front loader before (not Home Depot) which no longer worked because of electronics so we went with this top loader.
We shopped and this was the best deal. We have bought other appliances from Home Depot (refrigerator and dishwasher) and found Home Depot to be what you would want and expect it to be.
By Steve on Home Depot - Sep 4, 2012
Very Quiet Washer
We were very surprised at how quiet this washer is. It is quite a difference than other washers that you can hear a mile away. The tub has ample room for clothes and many water level options to choose from. We chose the metal tub as we heard that the plastic ones may not last as long. It's only been about 3 weeks since purchase, but very happy so far. We know others who own GE washers/dryers and they are happy with their products. Because of that and the fact that it is a USA product motivated our decision to buy it and we are happy that we did.

Had a Whirlpool over 12 years
good price for the size and features.. really quite and good size loads

I am very happy with this washing machine. It is quiet and gets the clothes very clean. Water levels and options are great. Spins clothes very dry.

BEST WASHER EVER! Super quiet.
I replaced a 10 year old kenmore with this ge washer. It's awesome. Super quiet, very large capacity, you can fit a queen size comforter with room to spare. Very pleased with this washer.

Better than was expectng!
Runs super quiet and cleans small as well as large loads easily!
By on Home Depot - Aug 1, 2012
very satisfied... so far.
We are an empty nest couple who have owned this washer for about a month. We have not one thing to complain about. It is quiet and washes the clothes well. The size of the tub was unexpectedly larger than we thought it would be... a nice feature. The delivery of the washer was on time and professional. I highly recommend the washer with free delivery.
By doug25427 on Home Depot - Jul 30, 2012
great clean and quiet
picked up this washer after old one stopped working. The large capacity is what steered us toward this one. Wow what a great clean and quiet too.
By MissClean on Home Depot - Jul 28, 2012
Washer has eaten clothes
The first run of our washer was perfect, but the second one ate a drawstring from some pants. Next up, an entire mattress pad got stuck under the agitator, so we had to call service. Not too happy that the brand new machine had two large problems inside of five days, but the service has been great. We have a new agitator, new motor piece coming, and the machine is functional while we wait. I hope this thing works out in the long run!
By michael on Home Depot - Jul 25, 2012
I love this washer !
A Washer that really washes your Cloths ! One that agitates the Cloths . Not one that just goes through the motions of washing !!! I had one of those that was only two years old and could not wait to get rid of it ! YA HOO when it broke ! :) This is a Wonderful Washer ! I Would buy it again.
By redwind on Home Depot - Jul 22, 2012
I have had this washer for about a month now. It does work well but because of the slowness of the aggitation the clothes tend to gather on one side causing the washer to be off balance, which means stopping it and rearranging all of the clothing so it can start again. I have a few times had to re rinse as it didnt get all of the soap out of the clothes, but it seems to be a descent washer for the most part. It was on the cheaper side so i guess you get what you pay for, but i would recommend it to a friend.
By Giggles on Home Depot - Jul 17, 2012
made in the U>S>A> !!!!
delivery was great! removed old washer. the new one very nice quiet. different cycles. will buy again works for me!
By ladyeve on Home Depot - Jul 12, 2012
So far it seems great.
I like it because it is not energy efficient. DON'T get an energy efficient clothes washer if you like to add water like I do. This one lets you add water and is by far the biggest one for the price. Spin cycle is excellent as the clothes come out almost dry. I recommend this GE 3.9 DOE cu. ft. Stainless Steel Capacity Washer for a big family like mine.

Got rid of a "bells and whistles" front loader that came with my house. Was having repair issues. Got this top loader as a basic model. Works fantastic!
By Cindy on Home Depot - Jul 10, 2012
Simple, Quiet and Excellent Performance
I replaced an 18 month old Whirlpool Cabrio HE top loader because it constantly went out of balance. It took 90 minutes to get a load finished while it constantly filled and refilled with rinse water trying to balance loads that weren't out of balance. I am so pleased with this new, old school GE top loader. Its simple, electromechanical controls allow me to select the water level that I think I need for any given load. It handles all types of loads with out skipping a beat, never goes out of balance and spins the loads nearly dry. The extra large capacity allows me top wash large items like a king size comforter with ease. The machine is so quiet I hardly know that it is running. And most importantly, the clothes come out clean and nearly wrinkle free in about 45 mins on the longest wash cycle. I couldn't be more pleased!
By Samtt on Home Depot - Jul 9, 2012
