(More customer reviews)Note: This is my review I gave on Home Depot's website.
I was accidentally given this machine by the store because it was boxed incorrectly. I got to use it for a 10 days while they got my correct machine in.
Others have made comments about the fill level of the machine. I would like to say that I never opened the lid during the wash or fill cycle to check the water levels I just followed the guide. On the inside of the lid there is a guide to inform you what fill point you find for small, medium and large loads. A side note that I find funny is that the dial has "Small, Medium and Super" settings, so I guess "Large" and "Super" are synonymous according to GE.
The washer does an excellent job of cleaning the clothes. They always smelled fresh and clean no matter what load level I had run. Additionally, the spin cycle does a great job of pre-drying the clothes. I never had a washer load balance issue while using because GE seems to have a layer of fluid to counterbalance the washer during the spin cycles. You can hear the fluid if you rock the machine slightly. It makes it sound like there is water in the machine when it is empty. So the positives are very clean clothes and nicely pre-dry clothes from the spin cycle, which you should expect from a washing machine.
Let's talk about the major negative to the washer, it's loud. This is the only sticking point that I have with it. The washer is not only loud running but the transition points from filling to shut off, starting the spin cycle all are accompanied by a "bang" sound. It was rather unnerving the first time I heard it and ran to check it out to see if something had broken but then heard the spin speeding up. Apparently this is a normal function and you shouldn't be worried about it. Our laundry area is right off the main hallway so if your laundry room is away from your living space then this may not be a problem for you.
