Pros:Good price, basic washer

Cons:No frills, short hoses

The Bottom Line: Compared to other brands, this GE machine had the most desirable features and largest capacity for the price.


You know something's wrong when you walk into the laundry room and see a puddle in front of your washing machine - and you don't own a puppy. (Yup, it's time for a new washer.)

If you are looking for a basic washing machine at a very reasonable price, this unit should be on your shopping list. No frills here, just your basic 2 speed washing machine, 3 water levels and 3 wash/rinse temp settings, standard knob controls (no electronics here), no dispensers, no lint filter.

I think the best thing about this unit is the capacity, 3.2 cubic feet. You can really put a lot of clothes in this machine. Also great for washing blankets, coats, and large items.

The agitator is standard reciprocating type. I watched it through a full normal wash cycle and it really circulates the clothes around. Everything in the machine goes past the agitator a few times and it really scrubs the clothes. There is also a gentle wash cycle that doesn't pull the clothes around as much.

Spin cycle really flies. I watched that too just to see how this machine works. Tub has a really nice suspension system, unbalanced loads float around pretty good without shaking the machine. Clothes rinse very well and come out damp. I was pretty happy with that compared to my old washer which didn't spin the clothes out as good. Saves drying time.

Machine makes normal amount of washing machine noise. There isn't any type of soundproofing in the cabinet. I don't consider it noisy.

Nothing fancy about the overall appearance, in fact the control panel is actually not that attractive. Just some plain looking knobs and really bad graphics. Cabinet is pretty solid and you can open the front for service.

Machine comes with water hoses but they are only 3' long, barely long enough to reach past your laundry tub (if that's where you're hooking up). You might need to buy longer hoses so just be aware of that.

Overall I am happy with this machine so far. It is just what I wanted - a basic washing machine. And if it lasts 20 years like my old one, I will be REALLY happy.
