Mel525 5/12/2020

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.

We love the quick wash setting. I just wish you could hear the bell go off when the machine is done, even with the volume all the way you can not hear it. I had the app loaded onto my phone and had to remove it, as it drove me crazy with sending me alerts every few minutes.

Ctkm 5/12/2020

We purchased a new washer and dryer set from another company (big name brand) a year and a half ago. The washer failed. Called there customer service, sorry nothing we can do. Repair company came, needed a new computer and control panel. Over $600 for those two parts. That washer was a top load with no agitator. The clothes seemed to never be clean. Washed kids clothes more that two times, sometimes, just to get "dirt" out. We decided it wasn't worth fixing and we wanted something better. This has not disappointed. Clothes are clean the first time. The high speed spin leaves the clothes almost dry. The fresh vent is nice. No smell so far. The rest of the features are very nice. Very good buy!!!

Georgiagirl12 5/11/2020

I have only had my new washer for two weeks, but so far, I absolutely love it! This is my third front loader and so far, it's my favorite. I was worried about the venting system because I had read that it is loud, but mine is not. I am also loving the app and like that it lets me know when the wash cycle is finishing.

jsmith81 5/10/2020

This washer replaced a much more expensive washer from another brand that kept leaking and it has not disappointed us so far. The washer spin cycle is incredible and it cuts down on the needed drying time. Fresh Vent system is also a neat feature.

Scorpio767er 5/9/2020

My Samsung washer started leaking water and it was time to replace. After doing a lot of research, I decided that this GE washer would meet our needs. It out performs our previous Samsung washer. It is quiet and washes very nicely. The spin cycle does a great job of drying clothes. This washer is also very spacious. The vent option is also very nice to keep the washer from smelling bad. The wifi feature is also nice.

Fun to use

Vigorousrae 5/7/2020

I've used this for a couple weeks. I installed it myself due to covid and not wanting people in my house which was easy. It cleans good. Love that it can hold a bunch of laundry soap. Haven't got WiFi connected since or Internet hasn't been working. The only real problem I have is that it doesn't have a extra spin cycle. I like using extra spin on my towels and comforters so it's easier to dry. Just have to deal with that though. I would recommend this

Settings Failed After 1 Month

Pedds5 5/7/2020

This is a nice sized front loading washer with a new feature to eliminate the sitting musty water in older front loading washers(venting setting). Overall the machine washes well it has a really good spin feature that gets a lot of water out. The bad news is this a noisy machine and vibrates even after making sure it was level. There are lots of clicking and squeaking. This and the venting feature worked a few times and after an hour of running I have had to power the machine off. Any setting that I add extra water to shorts out the machine.This is only after 1 month of regular use so I don't imagine this machine will last very long. The soap dispenser tray has special mildew liner to prevent mold/mildew build up but its stays very wet so I leave the tray open to air out even though the manual states it is not necessary.

Had to remove doors to get the washer into the laundry area. Weighs a ton. Advertised as WiFi connectible, but that is only after purchasing additional components at a cost, for both washer and dryer, of $100.00. Functionally it works great.

Sandymary 5/5/2020

I love this washer. I am amazed how it knows water levels, amount of detergent etc. that it needs per load and I don't have to set anything. The high spin just about dries all my clothes. This machine will save me money on water and electric. I am still working on the wi fi part but am confident it will be awesome. Hopefully I will get the gas dryer next.

Great Washer!

agoodother 5/5/2020

This washer gives clothes the business! I was at first leery because of reviews about the machine not balancing or clothes coming out dirtier than when they go in. I found that the people who installed the machine never removed the hardware for transport in the back of the machine, and if I never removed it myself then the machine would have been permanently unbalance. Also ran into the issue of clothes being dirtier afterwards - found that the hot and cold hookups were off!!! Installation is key to make your machine work like a dream. I use the fresh vent once a week and leave the washer open during the week to prevent mold. The machine still smells awesome after a few weeks of use and works marvelously.

Careful with your liquid detergent

AndreaJC 5/5/2020

So far so good. We've had the washer for about a month. It's pretty quiet, spinning can get a bit loud but NOTHING in comparison to our old washer! Be careful using liquid detergent though, even a tiny bit too much can cause it to over-suds and leak all over the floor. No problem with using pods though.

aabradley82 5/5/2020

I've owned this washer for a month and so far I am very happy with it. I can wash my king sized comforter in it without issue. Clothes are spun out to almost dry, so my dryer does not have to work as hard. The self venting door is AMAZINING! No more having to dodge an open door. Now, you do have to press play after running a load for it to vent, but it is easy to remember.

Cluna81 5/3/2020

I've been using this fabulous washer for the last 4 weeks. My household consists of myself, my husband, and three children so we're basically always washing. First of all I love the front load and the overall look of the machine. It holds the perfect amount of clothes and the smart features make it so convenient. Every clothing items washed has come out smelling fresh and clean. It's easy to wash my delicate items and not have to worry about any damage. I would highly recommend this machine it's made laundry so much easier. There are so many beneficial features and even my big comforters fit in it.

Fresh, clean clothes. As it should be!

twinkeltoes 4/27/2020

I have always had top loading washing machines. When I bought my new house it came with a front loader. It was only ok. It was hard to clean and left a bad smell on my clothes occasionally. But then I got this washing machine and it's AMAZING! It's so much easier to clean, it has a venting option for when the door is closed. That way you don't have to worry about mildew smells and having to rewash your clothes. It is WiFi compatible, I've set it up (instructions were very easy to follow) and it tells me when my wash load is almost done, when it's done, and when it's been sitting for half an hour. It has many different wash cycles and options to choose from and it's relatively quiet. I love this washing machine! I wish it let me program shorter wash times for light loads, and it might actually have that option and I haven't been able to find it. I highly recommend this washing machine.

Stevehousse 4/27/2020

What can I say about this new GE smart washer other than it's nearly perfect. It hold a good amount of laundry, is super quiet, used way less water than my old washer too. Loved the WiFi control and being sent a text when my laundry is done. How convenient. I also love that there is a sanitary option to sanitize the clothes, especially with the whole covid 19 going on right now. I always have been a fan of GE appliances, and this just continues my trust in the brand.

Washer works very well, Easy setup, only draw back is setting up WiFi feature if your a novice. I was one of many people that would say oh why do I need the WiFi feature, well because the washer is so quiet I would never know when it was done so no wasted trip to the basement to check on a load.

In love with a washing machine!

Stephwhit1 4/26/2020

I've been using theGE® 4.8 cu. ft. Capacity Smart Front Load ENERGY STAR® Washer with UltraFresh Vent System with OdorBlock™ and Sanitize w/Oxi washing machine for about two weeks now and I must say that this by far the best washing machine I've ever owned. There are so many great things about this washing machine I couldn't possibly list ALL them in one review! But I'll do my best! I thought at first it was going to be hard to use this washing machine because I am not what you would call tech-savvy. Actually quite the opposite. However, everything is self-explanatory on the panel. You can see things clear as day and customize each and every load. One of my favorite features (and believe me there are many) is the fact that when doing laundry sometimes the spin cycle will become off balance. However, this particular machine has the capability to correct itself most of the time! Which saves me a lot of getting up and down to open the washing machine and readjust the clothing. Or think the laundry is done when it's quite the opposite, soaking wet! I love how it thoroughly cleans my clothes. Especially the larger bedding coats, pillows, Etc. I used to have to go to a laundromat to do those type of loads. Not anymore. The GE Smart Front Load Energy Star washer takes care of that. You have the ability to customize each and every load. From the larger loads to the tiniest loads, it gets the job done quickly and efficiently. Also what I would split into two loads can now be put into one because the basket is so large. All the while getting my clothes super clean! Definitely a money saver. I really love the ultra fresh vent system as well. No more stinky washing machine LOL. This washing machine also has the ability to be wifi-connected to a specific app to help control the washer without even being anywhere near it. I only have one small issue and that was I had to install and uninstall the app several times to to get it to work. (that could have been my phone not sure). Connecting the washing machine to the app gives you the the ability to keep track of how many loads a week you are doing. It also lets you know when the loads are done. No more leaving a load in there overnight or longer I've had that happen so many times and had to rewash the entire load because of its smelling horrible! I'm actually not working at the very moment due to everything is going on in the world and didn't need to use the app very much to start and control my loads remotely. However, I can definitely see how it's going to be a blessing when I do go back to work for instance, I hang a majority of my clothes up to dry. Being super busy most of the time I quite often forget that there's a load in the washing machine. And by doing this even for a few hours, leaves the clothing so wrinkled that even after I hang them up to dry, I'll have tons of ironing to do. With this remote control ability I can start the washing machine right before leaving work and have the load done just as I'm as I'm walking to the door. Allowing me to quickly take the laundry out and hang up. That means less ironing! Ironing is not my favorite or so that is something that will make me extremely happy! Another favorite feature of this washing machine is the spin cycle. You can ramp up the power and speed of this particular step so that the clothes are almost dry. That means less time drying in the dryer and that saves me time me money! Like I said there are so many great things about this washing machine this review could go on and on forever! I definitely Can't say enough about it. I highly recommend it for all the reasons above and many more! My next mission is to add the matching dryer!

So Far So Good!

Only done a couple of loads, but really impressed so far with the spin speed and water extraction, the nice, clean feel of the clothes, the capacity, and overall feel/look of the machine.

Cant go back now!

RachelA1020 4/25/2020

Okay, this was my first front load washing machine I have ever used. It was DEFINITELY a bit of a change for me after using a top loader for 33 years of my life. At first I was like "I dont think I'll ever get used to this.". Now, after a month of constant use I cant imagine going back to a top loader. I'm 5'8 I dont have a pedestal for the washer and I'm still able to comfortably get clothes in and out. The compartment up top that slides out for you to put all your detergents is great. Very easy to use and there are fill lines and its labeled what goes where. The controls are pretty simple and self explanatory. Different settings for "soil" type. Has an option to add more water. Obviously there's water temperature settings/options. And theres a few different settings for the spin speed. Of course the higher the speed you have it for the spin the more its gonna knoch/be loud. I usually just do high or normal spin setting and the noise/knocking is tolerable. It only lasts a few minutes. My clothes come out almost dry, that's how good that spin cycle is. Theres only a few things that I didnt really care for with this washer. When you do the "more water" option at the end I would strongly suggest to pull put the compartment on top where the detergent goes. Theres probably going to be a section filled up with water. Like I said this was my first front loader so I'm not sure if that's normal on these kinds of washers. I would of thought no matter how much water goes in it all still should drain out and not go up in that compartment. I always have to pull the whole thing out and dump out the water afterwards. The other thing that I didnt really like was actually the wifi part. I could never get it to work. Customers care was no help really. My husband figured out that the passwords or numbers on the washer we were supposed to use to set up the wifi wasnt correct. Hes the tech guy and he couldnt figure it out because of that. YMMV. I'm sure others have gotten their wifi part to work. Maybe this was just a screw up on the factories part. Who knows. But I'm not too bothered by it. Overall I would certainly recommend this washer. Its definitely the best one I've had. Hopefully it lasts a while!

Amazing washer!!!!

Sh0rty23s 4/24/2020

I received this product a couple weeks ago and I will say this is by far one of the best washing machines out there. Very easy to set up and connect to the internet and the app. I love the fact it is so quite compared to any washer I have ever owned. The settings are so easy to use and love that I can start it with the app if I am at work. I accidentally forgot to switch the load from the washer to the dryer for 3 days and it did not smell gross at all. Normally after 1 day I have to re wash the load but the new washer it has a fresh vent and works amazing. I highly recommend this washer. It is one of a kind hopefully we can get the dryer soon to go with it.

How did I live without it?!

Megan T 4/24/2020

The GE Front Load Smart Washer has truly changed my life. I absolutely love the Tumble care feature. Super helpful since we forget to switch the loads in a reasonable amount of time. No more stagnant damp clothes sitting. It uses just the right amount of water every time. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great new washer.

I love this washer!

Jennifer Bee 4/24/2020

I am ecstatic about this GE washing machine! With our old washer we suffered through 13 years of mildew smells and mold on the gaskets. It took over 2 hours to wash a large load of clothes. I thought front loaders were not worth the purchase. This GE washer has a vent system and some of the parts are made with Microban. I have not smelled bad smells from it so I think it's working. It washes large loads in about 55 minutes, which is a huge improvement. The ultrafresh vent system runs for up to 8 hours, which is way too long for me. I either let it run for a short while until it's done or just crack open the door. It has a limited 10 year warranty. I like that it's 4.8 cubic feet and a little bigger than my last one. It is a smart washer and has a touch screen, which makes it feel a little fancy. If you want to wash clothes before bed or before leaving the house but won't be there to dry them right away, you can use the delay wash and choose when to have the cycle begin. It's handy.

Innovative washer with sleek looks

Hart39 4/24/2020

I am into new gadgets and love adding tech capabilities to every day things (lights, thermostat, etc) so being able to have real-time insight and control into my washer sucked in my technical curiosity. My wife and I have enjoyed the washer so far. It's doing it's job keeping our stuff looking like new and has been simple to keep clean , use, and not have to think about.

So clean and fresh!

amicrae 4/24/2020

What a joy to have such clean laundry! And a great design for a machine that has its own room. The machine is sleek and sophisticated looking but simple to use and works hard. Has all of the different cycles you could want and handles all of our laundry with ease. Now to get the matching dryer!!

Well Built.

NzkES 4/23/2020

Well thought out and redesigned front load washer. Was really excited about the brand new venting and MicroBan venting technology. Superior build quality, you can tell GE took their time and effort designing and building these machines.
