The GE GTWN7450DWW is part of the washing machine
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, top-loading washing machine
models like the GTWN7450DWW are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
This reflects the degree of color change to swatches of fabric that were included in an 8-pound and maximum capacity test load of mixed cotton items using the machines' most aggressive normal cycle. (We do not use special cycle or option buttons.)
This score is based on the energy needed to heat the water for 8-pound and maximum loads using a warm wash and cold rinse. We consider both gas and electric water heaters, and include electricity needed to run the washer and energy needed for drying. Washers that extract more water are scored higher.
This score denotes how much water it took to wash our 8-pound load and each machine's maximum load. On models that didn't set the fill level automatically, we used the lowest fill setting that sufficed for the 8-pound load. We then calculated water used per pound of clothing.
About This Brand
GE is increasing its front-loading offerings and is also adding its "SmartDispense" technology to a new flagship washer due out in July. The GE line now includes $700, $800, $900, and $1,200 models in the GE and GE Profile models.
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.
Auto temp. control
Auto bleach dispenser Automatic Bleach dispenser releases the bleach at the proper point in the cycle, giving the detergent additives sufficient time to work.

Do not buy this machine or GE
This machine arrived leaking fluid out of all openings-lid and down the inside to dampen the floor. It was replaced once within the first 30 days. The next machine was doing the same thing on a hot cycle. I have had 3 different technicians out, each one has come 3 or 4 times. Most of the time, the technician says the problem I am reporting can't be reproduced, therefore, no problem. I then took pictures of moisture condensation outside of the lid, on the back panel and on the floor. I was finally told that this machine doesn't have a heater at the bottom, so there is nothing to prevent it from leaking condensation on a hot cycle. I was then told that I chose a machine that simply doesn't fit my preferences since I like to use the hot cycle BUT THE MACHINE ITSELF WORKS FINE. Since they said the machine works fine, they said they would stop coming out all together. If you want more information on GE, visit the consumer affairs website. There are over 500 bad reviews. I seriously question Consumer Reports for their rating.
