NOT Recommended!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Efficient and Quiet

Cons:Hard on a bad back. Died after the warranty expired.

The Bottom Line: I do not recommend this washer because of the short life-span and cost of repairing it.


The GE Spacemaker Washer Model #WSXH208.

Our old washer wasn't getting our clothes clean. It was leaving black lint lines on everything. We also wanted to move our washer and dryer up to the first floor, so we wanted units we could stack and save space. We had also read about how much more efficient front-loading washers are. Of the two different brands we were considering, we bought the GE because of the better price for the set. We bought them about 18 months ago.

I don't think we could've found a better front-loading washer anywhere! It's got a pull-out compartment with spots for the detergent, bleach, and fabric softener. There are several different settings depending on the size and type of the load. It's very quiet, and gets everything very clean. No more black lint lines!

The only negative is reaching down and in the washer to place and remove clothes. Sometimes I do get a backache, but it's only temporary and well worth it!

UPDATE: In August 2004 this washer went kaput! It suddenly stopped working, and after being unsuccessful in getting it fixed and $200 later, we bought a new one (different brand, not a front-load). The serviceman told us that this brand of front-load washers are not easy to fix, and he didn't recommend them.
