Comment:
When I first got this machine I hated it. That said I have come to like it better each day. The fabric softener stopped dispensing about 1 month after use. There is a fix though Unplug the machine for about 5 mins. This resets the computer and the fabric softener will work again. Also don't set your own settings. Pick normal, whites, towels whatever then hit the E button on the panel it will pick the settings for you based on energy efficiency. I found this works best for clean clothes. I do change the Soil setting to normal or heavy but that's it. I hope this helps, because I saw a lot of reviews about the fabric softener not dispensing. <br />One last note, the wash times are longer with this washer, but it only takes the matching dryer 20 - 30 mins to fully dry stuff. In the end it all works out about the same as my old style washer and dryer I had for 15 years.
How long have you owned it:

Comment:
I am so unhappy with this product. Machine leaves several clothing items with dry spots, dirt in the seems and even simple soiling is not fully removed. The machines test just fine with the service tech, even had the mother board replaced and still no clean clothes. GE says we are overloading it. I made sure that wasn't the case per their manual and tech instructions. We also have the fabric softener problem where it doesn't dispense. I am working hard on GE to take this garbage back so I can buy a machine that actually cleans our clothes. My 10 year old $300 maytag that I replace with this machine washed more clothes faster and better than this piece of scrap metal.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
