  • MAJOR LEMON

    Feb 15, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Well I thought because it was a GE it would last at least ten years.
    Cons: It lasted a grand total of one year and ten months. LEMON!!

    Summary: My son bought this model for me out of the kindness of his heart and it's less than 2 years old and the transmission went out on it; of course with a full load. I have been around appliances for over 50 years and have never come across a washer that ... read more

    Pros: The white color matches our walls.
    Cons: Always breaks.

    Summary: My landlord replaced our old washer (really old washer,and now I wish we would have just repaired it) with this GE model. We have had it now for about 5 months and it has been broken about 4 months of that. When it spins, it spins uncontrollably ... read more

    Pros: Great for 1 1/2 years
    Cons: Too short-lived

    Summary: We owned ours for 1 1/2 years.  It worked great.  Then the tub inside came loose and the very loud bumping sounds and moving across the floor activities began.  It will cost about as much to fix it as it will to replace this.  I ... read more

    Pros: Worked good for 6 months
    Cons: Going in the trash in less than 2 years

    Summary: The machine got very loud after 6 months and then the belt broke, service tech replaced the belt but said noice wasn't an issue. One year later the belt is destroyed and the motor is burned out. I'm taking the GE 75$ have a nice day and go away ... read more

    Pros: Fits a lot of clothes and has some pretty decent options for the price.
    Cons: Unreliable, every review has had the same problem of knocking and shaking and breaking.

    Summary: We got this washer new with our house. It was quiet for about 6 months. then came the violent shaking at the beginning of the spin cycle, then the knocking during the wash cycle. finally the shaking AND knocking through the spin cycle. the machine itself ... read more

    Pros: Looks Nice (For the lack of ANYTHING better)
    Cons: NOISY, DOESN'T PERFORM LIKE IT SHOULD, WASTE OF MONEY!

    Summary: Less than a day and I'm extremely unhappy. Wish I had researched before buying. Our old machine of 9 years died (a Frigadere). It was a basic machine, but right now I'd trade back to it in a heart beat to rid us of this one. It sounds like an old car, ... read more

    Pros: none that can't be found in other (cheaper) machines
    Cons: tub stability design flaw

    Summary: do not buy this machine... Returned the first machine 3 days after installation because the tub was so loose that spin cycle could not be completed. The machine almost walked out of our house from the shaking... we should have taken that as a sign, ... read more

    Pros: Holds a lot of laundry, easy to use
    Cons: Breaks constantly

    Summary: This machine is awful and depending on where you purchase it from, it can be a nightmare. I purchased this machine 6 months ago from Sears. A few months after purchase, the machine started bouncing around (literally) during the spin cycle - it ... read more

    Pros: Price
    Cons: performance, noise

    Summary: We just purchased this machine and have been very disappointed in it's performance. When washing jeans or towels, the machine throws itself off balance. This causes it to slam loudly and walk around during the entire spin cycle on every load. Upon having ... read more
