  • GE Extra Large 2.7 Cu. Ft.Front Loading Washer - I think I'll trade it in.

    May 16, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Large drum, excellent spin cycle, quiet
    Cons: Small opening, soap and bleach drip into machine, knobs on front.

    Summary: When we moved from California we thought that we would have our stuff in storage for about a year before we got a place of our own, so we sold our washer and dryer. Well, that's what we get for thinkin', I guess. About 3 months later we sat in our ... read more

    Pros: Economical
    Reliable
    Simple
    Cons: Noisy
    Small

    Summary: Bought one of these at a scratch & dent in 1998 for $500. Front loaders were still largely European curiosities back then, and this (low for the time) price gave me a chance to check out this superior method of cleaning clothes.  In short, it ... read more

    Feb 17, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Dependable, fits in a small place, lasted very long.
    Cons: Small door and opening. Rubber seal around door tends to get gunky with wash residue.

    Summary: My dad purchased this GE stacking pair (washer and dryer) for us when we got into our new house. After installing the washer dryer pair we gave it a try. I should add here that I did the installation myself and it was pretty easy. After loading the ... read more

  • Easy to use, but doesn't clean

    May 27, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: energy efficient (if used once - even three washes don't match our old Maytag machine)
    Cons: Doesn't wash well at all, bad support

    Summary: The machine looks nice, easy interface, but is really isn't well designed. The main problem is that it doesn't wash well. The rest we could have lived with (like having the door lock indicator off when the door is still locked for a minute or so, or less ... read more

    Pros: When it decides to work, it gets clothes dry from the spin
    Cons: Too many to count

    Summary: I am seriously about to go postal on my machine. We have had it about 5 years and seriously, we have had problems with it about every 3-4 months since then, but it's all built-in to our laundry room and very hard to replace so I have stuck with it. I ... read more

    Pros: Quiet, Energy Star rated
    Cons: NOT DURABLE in the least. Poor service by GE and Home Depot.

    Summary: I purchased my front loader after my washer was damaged by hurricane flooding. I wanted an Energy Star rated machine, and a front loader provided the options of lower water usage (easy on the septic) and the ability to easily load a machine on a high ... read more

    Pros: large capacity minimal water usage fast spin cycle gets clothes dryer
    Cons: Temperamental soap/bleach/fabric softener dispenser needs a gentle touch.

    Summary: I agonized over this purchase for several days before I decided spend an extra $300(CAD)on a front loading washing machine compared to a large capacity top loader. However, after purchasing this machine and using it for about 3 months now I am pleased I ... read more

    Cons: May be difficult to load and unload for those with back problems

    Pros: energy, water, & detergent efficient, looks cool
    Cons: $700, awkward to load at first
