Most unsatisfactory

By ArtS

from Houston, TX, United States

Comments about GE 5.0 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

Controls do not fit the task, cycles are too long, spinning ruins clothes. Have had repair people onsite multiple times. Some cycles do not allow low spin. Example, sheets and towels must be washed "hand cycle" to protect from damage.

Rocky start but otherwise great machine!

By Marylandmom

from Washington, DC, United States

Comments about GE 5.0 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

I had MANY service calls to replace MANY parts on this washer within the first several months of owning it but ever since the last service call nearly a year ago, I've had no issues. I have 3 small children who get their clothes extremely messy and this washer gets most set in stains out like a champ so I'm happy!

There's a better model out there

By swim

from Undisclosed

Comments about GE 5.0 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

Purchased 6 months ago. Do not feel it does a good job cleaning the clothes. I'd prefer that there was a middle piece that moves the clothes around more.

Even better than a front load

By Denny77

from Albany, NY, United States

Comments about GE 5.0 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

I was very satisfied with the quality of this washer. It has the economy and wash of a front load washer and the drum design is fantastic. I can fit a comforter since it doesn't have the center post taking room. Steam feature is great and the wash quality is better than some of the more aggressive washers I had in the past.

Comments about GE 5.0 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

I bought this washer about 7 weeks ago and so far so good! Easy to use even my 1st time. I love having the extra space. Hoping this one lasts a very long time!

Poor Quality

By RossDave

from Ross, OH, United States

Comments about GE 5.0 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

My first washing machine was delivered on June 17, 2014. It had a major scratch on the front of the machine. The second washing machine washed was delivered on June 23. The water level is not sufficient unless I use the "bulky items" setting. But this limits the spin speed to "high" so the clothes do not get as dry. For the last month there has been standing water in the "pretreat/liquid bleach" compartment. The washing machine is supposed to talk to the dryer and send information about what dryer cycles to use. Unfortunately there are no instructions in the manual how to do this.

Laundry does not get clean

By 4Farmgirl

from Cobleskill

Comments about GE 5.0 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

I like all of the features on this washer, smart dispense for both detergent and softener, many temperature options. However the clothes do not get clean. We live on a country farm and the new wave technology can't handle the mud and barn dirt. My old front loader was unreliable but when it worked the clothes were very clean. I would like to be able to add an agitator in the middle. I suppose if I were to put in very small loads it would work better but what is the sense of having a 5 cu.ft. washer and only being able to wash 2 cu. ft. of laundry. Too many boys in my life for that to work.
