Enjoy exclusive rebate savings with purchase of qualifying GE appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 1/31/2019.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Im extremely disappointed

11/16/2018

I regret purchasing this top loader. It does not have a true agitator the amount of water is ridiculously low and I am unable to wash 1 or 2 items without it bouncing all over the room. I hate this new machine and wish my 30 yr old machine still worked. I dont have the money to purchase a different machine so I have to hang onto this one until it dies. And I hear that all these new machines do not fill with enough water. So disappointed Terrible design horribly flawed

Great Washing Machine

11/15/2018

Our previous washing machine which was NOT a GE died after 3 years. We had problems with it and serviced it several times but the manufacture did not honor their warranty. We have had our new GE machine for a short time but already know it is 100 better. We have had several GE products over the years and will continue to purchase their products.

11/15/2018

Bought this washer a month or so ago to replace a 15 year old Kenmore and we are very happy with it tons of features and options to choose from but its easy enough to follow. Does a great job washing uses much less water and we find they come out cleaner using the same detergent which was a pleasant surprise. The only drawbacks I can see is the unit is fairly loud its in our basement so thats not an issue for us. Also with all of the electronics Im unsure how long it will last so I took out an extended warrantee once it was offered from GE. Only time will tell.

Very Happy With Purchase

10/24/2018

I was forced to replace my front load washer when the bearings broke down spreading oil on my clothes. I decided to return to a top loader and this model had all the features I was looking for. So far it has exceeded my expectations. It is easy to run cleans well and can add extra water with the deep fill button when I want that for a large load. It is a bit louder than my previous washer but I like the sounds of all the cycles and the little song at the end. So far I am very pleased with this washer

Filling issues

10/18/2018

My main issue with this machine is when you select the Deep Fill option from the allowed cycles that it is supposed to work with it it never fills more then half way. Also to get the RMP of the spin cycle it seems you must have the perfect balance for the machine to spin fast enough.

Nightmare

10/10/2018

This is the worst nightmare of my life. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS MACHINE The electronic sensors of this machine dont work. The machine hardly fills up with water and the clothes are only rubbing against each other. The clothes come out dirty smelling and with either detergent of lint all over them. The drum is huge but is a waste of time because no matter how much you put in the clothes dont rotate because of lack of water due to poor sensing mechanism. If you try to hand fill the sensing process lets out the water and you have start all over again. The agitator at the bottom only washes the clothes at the bottom of the machine. The poor water level plus poor agitating system make this washer a bad choice and waste of money. It takes me a whole day to wash 3 loads of laundry because of the poor sensing process. The best things on the machine are the looks and spinning process.

Best washer ever

10/2/2018

After fighting another name brand washer for over a year that never worked correctly we received a buy out and was able to replace that machine with this one. This machine is awesome. Its been 2 weeks and its been wonderful The agitation is great and the clothes get clean. So nice for a machine to actually fill up when that setting is chosen The machine is not quiet but mine is in the basement do that is not a concern for me Definitely not enough of an issue to give it only 4 stars I love this machine and am so happy we purchased it

Decent washer

9/26/2018

I bought this washer a month ago and I really like it so far. Its a decent washer. The only issue I have experienced is when I dont evenly spread out my clothes in the wash particularly when I do a small load it spins loudly. I had 4 items in the wash set it to quick wash and the clothes spun to one side and started to rattle loudly.

Hi I dont care for the washer it was deliver when I was away. My husband excepted the delivery. I would have refuse it.

Great ideas not the follow through

9/14/2018

The offered features sound great but in reality not all of them measure up. I have no control over the amount of water. The machine senses the load level and never has quite enough. Even though I keep the deep fill option on for every load I cant tell much difference. This machine needs the option to add water to my discretion. Also the rotation speed is ridiculously SLOW. The only difference in the load settings is not a change in rotation speed it just changes the amount of time it rotates. Certain type fabrics heavily soiled loads need faster rotation. Due to this I have had to cycle certain loads twice to get them clean. I love the idea of all the options offered but the follow through to final outcome is disappointing.

The washer I Had was a Kenmore energy efficient so i was looking for one that had all the same features of my 10 year old machine. I did my research and chose my new GE #GTW685BSLWS this washer has all the features as my old one and a few extra ones I Am truly impressed energy star ratingand everything. Now the true test will be to see how long this machine is going to last. from all indications i think it is going to outlast my old one. well built and solid construction .

VERY NOISY--Dont buy

9/1/2018

The washer they delivered was very noisy sounded like a freight train and jumped around on the floor. Washed one load of clothes with bleach using the bleach dispenser. The next load then was damaged from drops of bleach left over in the dispenser. Finally called repairman...too many things wrong with it and it was replaced...The next one still sounds like a freight train especially when you do a small load. When I moved from that home the movers showed me where the machine had dents and damage...before they ever lifted it so I would know they didnt do it that could be part of the problem with this one but I can safely say it is the worst washer I have ever owned.

Most clothes clean regardless of soil level

8/30/2018

During our gardening season being able to adjust the type of soil is really helpful. It works well for nearly all loads but I was absolutely unable to balance a load when the setting was Bulky. I had a cotton bedspread for a full-size bed and a twin size blanket. No matter how I tried to balance it it immediately was out of balance. Every time the washer is re-set to an additional rinse and spin additional water was added which made the load more unbalanced. I eventually hung the items in a basement bathroom and then on the clothesline. I tried to dry them completely but because they were both unrinsed they still smelled like detergent. I believe I will still be forced to take bedspreads and blankets to a laundromat. The other types of loads work very well.
