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.

Ultrafresh

NCNana 7/24/2020

I purchased this for the ultrafresh and microban features. So far I'm very pleased with how great this washer works. I'm replacing a Samsung that was the worst machine I've ever owned. I'll always stick with GE in the future.

Castle28 7/23/2020

We had a top loader that we didn't care for. The venting system caught my attention. Our clothes are so much cleaner and it takes 1/2 the time than our old set!! I drive my kids nuts with the WiFi feature because they can't leave their laundry in without me texting them!

Not thrilled

LKo5 7/23/2020

I was really excited about this washer, but I have not been thrilled with it. You can't put detergent in until you're ready to run the load because it will leak water. The extra spin cycles did not help when I tried to wash pillows they remained soaking wet. I wasn't aware the fresh vent required 15 minute cycles for 8 hours. I thought it wasn't open where the vent is to reduce moisture.

Superior cleaning

Matt98 7/22/2020

So this is the first front load washing machine my wife and I have ever purchased have always had a Toploader.We noticed right away as to how clean this washing machine gets our clothing and towels and how Quite it is. Another amazing fact about this machine as to how much water the spin cycle extracts from the clothing they are almost dry when done. We've only had this washing machine about a month but so far I am very impressed and would recommend it.

My new GE washing machine

AAA7 7/21/2020

I've wanted a front loading washing machine for a while now,I'm glad finally made this purchase. Washing machine is very quiet, even on the spin cycle. 4.8 cu ft drum is large enough to accommodate bulky comforters and pillows . Very happy with my new GE washing machine!

New GE Washer

Big Daddy L 7/21/2020

We replaced our Electrolux washer that died after only 7 years with this GE Model. It cost us less and is a larger & better machine. Especially like the large, yet not too deep drum to make unloading easier. Also really appreciate vent system (that is what sold us) when it is finished washing to dry it out to prevent the mold that would build up in our old washer.

Leaked

DotFort 7/21/2020

I bought this washer at Lowe's today 7/21/2020. Brought it home hooked it up and ran a quick wash like the directions suggested to check for any leaks and boy did it leak. Called GE service to get somebody out and they told me they wouldn't have anybody till August 7. That is unacceptable. Lowes stepped up and are sending somebody To swap it out with a different washer. I am going back to my Maytag.

Less than two months old

Jliebee 7/20/2020

I have had this washing machine for less than two months and it already has had to have service. The belt broke during a wash cycle and I am in limbo awaiting another two weeks now for the part to become available. This is completely unacceptable for such a highly rated machine. I understand that issues arise and belts can break, however not a brand new machine.

Very nice washer for the price

Toobreezy 7/20/2020

This is a very nice washer. It is my first front loader and I am very happy with it. It has a lot of options and features, but easy to follow. I'm giving it 4 Stars because it's crazy heavy! once in place, it nearly takes a forklift to move. The legs on the bottom basically stick in place. I also expected it to be a lot quieter, but it's still much quieter than my top loader. The ultra fresh vent is a nice feature, but it can take up to 8 hours to finish the cycle!

SeattleMan 7/18/2020

The UI on the washing machine is great - probably due to large, easy to read display. The buttons are intuitive and straight forward, and everything seems to be working like a charm. Of course - the real test will be use over time, but I'm honestly excited about this!

Just received, only used twice. So far so good. I like that it has a large tub and that you can put pillows and blankets and small rugs without rubber backing in it. The stay fresh feature will come in handy too. In the past I have had to leave the door open. Still might until I feel I can trust it. So far I really like the set and hope for many years for this work horse.
