Cassbash 6/3/2020

I had a Samsung washer that quit. I purchased this GE after reviews on good housekeeping. It looks nice, easy to navigate controls. However, the very FIRST thing I've noticed....it is MUCH louder than my previous wAsher. Not just during the final spin, but even the wash cycle. It is something I'll have to get used to. The matching dryer is loud, also. But I guess the main thing is how well that function. We shall see.

Work horse of a washer

jillyt 5/30/2020

Had a competitor front load washer for 10 years and was loyal to the brand until it was unrepairable. This GE model has exceeded my expectations with design improvements to the front load model, size capacity, and as well as addition of Microban in inner housing of washer. Powerful washing and rinsing-clothes come out incredibly clean and very low moisture which makes drying faster, less wrinkling and more energy efficient.

Nana Noodleman found LOVE

Nana Noodleman 5/29/2020

After weeks of watching YouTube videos, reading anything I could find on ALL washers and dryers I decided to go with the GE Ultrafresh. I took a large gamble and I WON! This machine even got my husbands gross work pants so clean I can not tell they are his work jeans anymore. In the past week I ran the machine on every cycle available without issue. Super pleased and definately worth the money. I'm the person that actually enjoys doing laundry and could not be more pleased with the GE Ultrafresh.

It cleans out the competititon!

PhilipC87 5/28/2020

I have been a big fan of GE Appliances ever since I can remember. My last stout top loader lasted me almost 5 years. Heavy abuse, but GE applieances seems to be up for the task. It was time to purchase a new one. I went all out and bought the biggest washer I can find at my local appliance store. Comparing the GE front loading washer to other competitors it is built better, quality control, the door panel is made of thick glass not acrylic. It is quiet and it delivers clean clothes. Lastly and most importantly customer services is superb! Not kidding they will take care of you. Make sure to register the product (Very Easy)! I don't mind spending the big bucks for GE, because I support American made and you do get what you pay for.

Happy Wife Happy Life

Monie05 5/27/2020

Originally my husband bought a Samsung when our washer broke. I was doing research on washers when I found this GE. I was very happy with what I found. I had my husband return the Samsung and buy this GE. I was very pleased when it was delivered. The washer can was a decent amount of clothes. I have 5 boys and doing large ammount of laundry in the least amount of time is what helps this household. The one this I noticed that just bothered me is the soap drips down and I feel the soap doesn't go on the drain it has between the rubber.

UltraFresh Vent is Amazing

tdoan 5/26/2020

I've always been hesitant to buy a front loading washer because of the maintenance to keep it from mildew and odor. I love the new anti microbial seal and the UltraFresh Venting system to minimize moisture. I run the venting cycle for an hour or two after finishing wash for the day and it keeps the washer free from moisture and odor!! Very happy with my purchase!

Nice Washer

mominator 5/21/2020

Replaced a 5 year old Samsung, that I had problems with since it was 2 years old. This washer practically dries the clothes. When you go to put them in the dryer, there is no excess water and the dryer doesn't take as long to dry them. I didn't give is 5 stars, because the end cycle sound is too low. Otherwise I'm very happy with this washer.

Mom234life 5/19/2020

With suddenly finding ourselves at home, it's easy to become distracted by all the goings on in the house. Getting notifications as to when my wash is done & reminders if I don't switch quickly enough, this amazing easier keeps me on task. Additionally the reminder to use the vent washer feature after each load keeps my washer fresh!

Great washer so far. Newer version of the one we had 10 years, running laundry for a family of 5 with 3 - 3 sport teenage kids (lots of smelly workout gear). Kills me to spend so much on a washing machine - but they do last and perform.
