Finally

So I was in the market for a front load washer end ended up buying and returning 3 different brands 2 Korean brands and one Swiss before finally buying the G.E. This washer is so smooth and quite compared to the other unreal the difference. This is a sleeper that I hope people realize is very competitive and better in my opinion. The only thing I wish the display was brighter sometimes hard to read.

Great Features

1/30/2018

This is a great washer. It has all the features you want. The first load I did was a load of towels to see how it worked. You could see they came out cleaner than my old washer. This has the features that my old one was missing for less money. Like quick wash more water steam etc. It sits a little low. I would like it to be at least six inches higher. But other than that it has given GE a good name.
