Pros:Great spinning cycle. Adaptive spin in accordance to the floor.

Cons:Soap dispenser. Sanitizing temperature only on one cycle, excessive wrinkles.

The Bottom Line: This washer it is a good washer compared to its sisters, but not even closed to an Europen washer.

I had bought this washer after been a victim of a defective GE front load washer 6400.
This washer is a nice upgrade to its previous sister. It is very easy to use, and has most of wash programs needed for every day wash.
The machine is very easy to use. It has 8 main wash cycles, 5 water temperatures, 4 spin speed, 4 soil levels, an option for pre-wash, extra rinse, delay start, and a new e wash option, (it increase the final spin time of 8 minutes, and set the water temperature to cold; but not available on Sanitize)

Overall, I am very please with the washer; although, it leaves lots of wricles on the clothes, regardless, the spin speed used, or the cycle. In other words the machine require for you to run all of the clothes into the dryer, and not to line dry, unless you like to iron afterwords.

The cycles, are average lenght for any front loader, but interesting enough , the sanitizing temperature is only available on the heavy cycle,,and not on the stain cycle( like stated on the manual.)

The machine has a lint filter, to trap any odd items that might get cought by teh washer.

The soap dispenser is ok, but it could use some improvements, like a wider pre-wash compartment, and a better configuration for the softener, and bleach. Also, Ge need to re-invent the liquid detergent stopper, because it just does not work.

The machine uses very little water, which, forbid the washer to rinse the clothes well. The only cycle that uses lots of water is the wool- hand-wash cycle.
