About - GE GFWS1500DWW

The GE GFWS1500DWW is a front-loading washing machine available from GE. The GFWS1500DWW typically costs between $850.49 - $999.88.

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on front-loading washing machine models like the GFWS1500DWW.

Energy star:
The federal Energy Star program, administered by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, identifies a wide range of home appliances that use 10-50% less energy and water than standard models. These appliances can help you use less energy at home and save money on your utility bills.

Stainless-steel tub:
Tubs constructed of stainless steel are likely to be more durable than plastic or porcelain, and they allow for higher spin speeds. Plastic is the next most durable choice.

Auto temp. control:
This feature automatically mixes hot and cold water to reach the chosen wash temperature (which differs on various makes of washers). It's a good way to compensate for normal variations in tap-water temperature and prevents problems caused by water that's too cold, which keeps detergent from working properly.

Tested Model
The Ratings of GE GFWH1400D[WW] were applied to untested model GE GFWS1500DWW, which in our judgment is enough alike in its performance, features, and specs that our test results apply to both.

Best Uses
This is my first front loader. Runs quite, and used very little water. It cost almost twice as much as top loaders, but seams worth it as it does a much better job of cleaning.<br /><br />The only draw back for me is that it is 225 lbs. and had to go up a spiral staircase. Now that it is in, the wieght sure helps it not to viberate.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
