  • The GE WBVH6240FWW Front Load Washer ---- A Great Part to Washer and Dryer Combo

    Aug 16, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy to use, digital read-outs, pre-set washing modes, makes life SO easy
    Cons: absolutely none

    Summary: Moving into a place that didn't come with its own washer or dryer, a quick realization occurs that it is nearly impossible to rely upon coin operated machines at the Laundromat once you have become accustomed to having your own. The GE WBVH6240FWW Front ... read more

    Pros: Low cost
    Cons: Bad design, many repairs needed, clothes smell, no access to pump filter...etc.

    Summary: I thought that the GE name would be a safe choice, but I was very disappointed with this machine.  I purchased it several years ago and now it needs to be replaced.  We have had several service calls for the washer and dryer while it was under ... read more

    Pros: Ran Great, seemed fairly efficient, great features, was reliable for a while.
    Cons: Could fail at any time. I just took a little longer for me.

    Summary: I think the good reviews for the washer are by good people that just haven't had it fail on them YET. I used to be very happy with this washer. For a three years, it ran great. Then I left a pen in a pocket of my jeans and it easily tore through the soft ... read more

  • Dead after four years

    Aug 28, 2010 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks nice, cleaned clothes well for the four years it worked.
    Cons: Short life span, high cost to purchase, high cost of repairs, smelled bad.

    Summary: After about four years of service,  I noticed that my clothes were coming out of the washer either very wet, or bone dry and not cleaned at all.  I put in a couple of rugs and set it to rinse and spin, sure enough, the washer was not spinning ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks Cool!
    Cons: Leaves clothes smelling awefil and machine breaks

    Summary: We own a GE front loader model# WBVH624FWW that we bought new. It started to smell after about 6 mos. It is now just over 3 years old and has stopped working. It started leaking water underneath it and then this week the lights all came on and it stopped ... read more

  • A great disappointment -- Do not waste your money on this!

    Jul 13, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Costly, filter not easily maintained, odor, heavy, "walks"

    Summary: We have a well and a septic system, and purchased this washer to conserve water. I love to do laundry, but I absolutely HATE this washer. GE's failure to include information in its manual regarding the necessary periodic cleaning of the drain pump ... read more

  • Trust me when I say it's junk

    Feb 8, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It looks good
    Cons: You can't just look at it. It actually needs to function/

    Summary: I'm not often frustrated by something to seek out writing a review. But this washer is the exception! I bought mine about 1.5 years ago and was immediately unhappy. The spin cycle vibrates my entire house. Pictures have fallen from the wall in the ... read more

  • Thought this washer would be better for the kids to operate

    Dec 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: none
    Cons: breaks all the time

    Summary: I have had this washer for 14 months and just made my forth service call. I bought this washer from lowes each time I make a service call it takes an hour on the phone with many run arounds. After the call is complete it takes about a week for someone ... read more

  • Does not spin out clothes

    Nov 10, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: None.
    Cons: Clothes will come out of the washer wet and take forever to dry.

    Summary: OK, the washer washes the clothes very well. But chances are, they're going to come out very wet. But, you say, isn't that supposed to be the advantage of a front-loading washer? Yep, but not this one. Repairman: twice. Satisfaction: 0. He said ... read more

  • I love my GE front-load washer/dryer

    Jul 2, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, efficient, very attractive, great at cleaning everything, received $225 in energy rebates
    Cons: The washer door is not reversible because it contains a locking mechanism for safety.

    Summary: I have owned the GE front-load washer and dryer for 10 months, doing about 3 loads a week and I have not had a single problem. I read how other people have had horror stories, but mine certainly is not the case. In fact, it looks like most people ... read more

  • Cleaning pump filter

    May 26, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: looks, energy efficiency
    Cons: slow, questionable reliability

    Summary: Our washer stopped working correctly after a little over one year. It would pause frequently during operation and take hours to complete a single load. I did purchase the extended warranty from Lowes; unfortunately, they base the warranty on the ... read more

  • Not Worth It- Update

    Apr 26, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Uses less water (lower water bill), stacking dryer (saves space)
    Cons: Rubber gasket came out, clogs with pet hair and pocket contents, torn clothes, can't washXLloadsaspromised

    Summary: The stacking machines that save floor space and the water saving features are great. We are over charged for water here and that does count for something. Unfortunately the claims to save, also, on electricity and drying time because the washer spins ... read more

  • Fixed the awful vibration, though the answer is hidden in manual

    Apr 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: quiet wash cycle. average to above average spin noise/vibration. very energy/water efficient
    Cons: lack of detailed unpacking instructions. super long normal wash cycle. inaccurate timer

    Summary: I bought the washer at Sam's Club because of their VERY liberal return policy: anytime you're not satisified they will issue a full refund (make sure to save your receipt though!). the down side was they only had 1 front loader to choose from, and ... read more

  • Regarding the machine not spinning!

    Feb 22, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Our spinning/walking issue was resolved and the machine runs perfectly.
    Cons: Just the process of figuring out the spinning/walking issue...now no cons!

    Summary: I see this named as a frequent problem recently on these machines. We just installed our machine last weekend and had problems with the spinning also (and yes, vibration). We had purchased the 4 year warranty through home depot and call the line. A GE ... read more

    Pros: Large capacity, water and energy efficient, stainless tub, easy to use controls, Nice Look
    Cons: Could use better installation instructions, Larger dispenser openings, Long Cycle Time, Needs Special Detergent

    Summary: I just purchased this washer for use in a small motel. I average about 4 loads per day of motel laundry and then a few loads per week of our personal laundry. I will update this review a couple of times a year or as necessary to let you know how it is ... read more

  • don't buy this

    Jan 28, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sorry, can't think of any advantage to this machine.
    Cons: Loud, won't spin, dingy clothes, torn clothes, long cycle.

    Summary: I bought this machine without researching it, something I rarely do. I had heard about front loading machines, and had used commercial washers without problems, so did not anticipate problems with this. The salesman spoke about all the great things: ... read more

    Pros: Price Cleans well Large capacity
    Cons: Difficult to access filter Doesn't stack well with the dryer

    Summary: My husband and I were still using his Grandmother's '80's era Kenmore washer, so I was very excited when it died on us. I wanted a pretty new HE set to save water, electric, etc. This set was priced within my budget - far less than other HE machines ... read more

    Pros: Very easy to use, economical, gets clothes clean.
    Cons: Buzzer on loudest setting still is too soft.

    Summary: I have never felt the urge to write a review before but this is the exception. I was set to purchase a top load machine for half the price but while talking to a sales associate he mentioned the money saving features of the front load models, as in ... read more

    Jun 4, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: price... for this type of unit, simplicity
    Cons: matching dryer doesnt have stainless drum... Knobs seem a little flimsy.

    Summary: My 1970s kenmore washer was so used up that the enamel was worn off the drum. If I didnt rush to get things out at the end of the cycle then I would get rust stains. After a year of rushing and a few too many rust stains, I decided it was time to buy a ... read more
