Original review: Feb. 1, 2023

I purchased a washing machine and dryer set on 10/8/2022. It was not installed in our home until mid November (due to our home being under construction from a house fire). The washing machine worked a month, it broke the day after Christmas. I have been in contact with GE 1/7/23, 1/18/23, 1/27/23, 1/30/23 and today, 2/1/23, had 2 service calls to my home, had the main board replaced and now they are wanting to send their "technical engineers to see if there is anything else to do to make it work." GE scheduled a visit for these engineers and the following day, I received a call from the company who GE contracts with, rescheduling my appointment for yet another week.

So, my washing machine is BRAND NEW and has been broken more days than it has worked. No one seems to want to help me at GE and keeps sending me to someone else who wants to send out a tech. How many techs does it take to say...this machine is not working, even the main board didn't fix it? I paid for a washing machine that should work for years and I got one that has only worked for a month!! GE does not stand behind their products and it is very dishearten to know that this long standing, trusted company is now turned to crap!!!! I am not one to bash anyone or their business, but my experience with GE has been terrible and I sure do not want anyone to have to endure this added, uncalled for stress in their lives!!

The machine worked well up to about a week ago and it started with not spinning, I thought maybe we had a power glitch so I restart the machine, this only happened once so did not think too much about it. After doing laundry yesterday, we went to do a load today and the machine was dead as a doornail. Nothing worked. Tried to reset the computer as instructed nothing. The extended warranty only covered the machine, not the computer or electrical parts. I would recommend doing research and seriously thinking of a different company instead of GE.

    I moved to home that had GE stackable washer/dryer. My first load of laundry I opened machine and noticed clothes weren't all wet. Upon further review I noticed washing machine only puts a couple of squirts of water in. I have to use a bucket every time I do laundry to add enough water that clothes get wet. Tried pre soak, same thing. Couple squirts of water only and that's called soak? I am all for saving water but having to manually fill my washing machine in 2022??? I am glad I brought my old machine with me when I moved. Now just have to find a plumber. This stackable will be free at curbside soon.

    My new washer stopped filling all the way. I have tried to get repair service for 3 weeks. My appointment is made then canceled without any notification. When I call to find out why no one showed up. They have no record of appointment being made but they shipped parts to me. I will never buy a GE appliance again.

    This washer was installed by Home Depot. It worked okay for about a year, after the year passed it began declining. On the second year mark, it completely stopped working. GE offers limited warranty and it’s for a year or less, after that you’re on your own. We paid $107 just for diagnostics, we were then quoted $499 just for the part that needed replacement, after labor our bill was supposed to be at about $700 - $900. Just after 2 years of use. We opted to buy a new one instead of repairing this. A day after we replaced this washer, the matching dryer stopped working. Another expense after two years of owning this brand we are left with nothing and no help from GE.

    I purchased a 2022 washer from GE.MODEL#GFW650SPN2SN. Called and a installation person came, he informed me nor unbalanced but defective. Called GE, they sent a service repair person and he informed my motor and a number of other parts were defective. GE answer to this was to repair, to me that means they are going to refurbish my washer. I paid full price, if I would bought refurbished I could have saved a lot of money. Now GE service company is telling me parts are on back order for at least 5 weeks. GE said they were going to search for parts. Should take at least 5 business days. Meanwhile my washer was delivered in June and I am still without a washer. Today is August 15.

    My recommendation would be for anyone searching for a washing machine, to look past the bells and whistles and go with another brand. I bought Samsung 4 door refrigerator with all bells and whistles and it works beautiful. I will not, for my own sanity deal with GE again. Dealing with that company is like pulling teeth. Thought I needed to share, maybe save another consumer from the horrible experience I am going though. Good luck consumers, it is a very harsh world out there.

    I purchased a GE washing less than 2 years ago at Lowe's. GE model #GTW465ASN1WW and have had a repair guy out here twice already. The machine doesn’t spin the clothes completely and they are dripping wet at the end of the cycle. Repair guy today said the control board needs replacing and it could take up to a month to get the part. Two repairs in less than two years. I would highly advise against purchasing this washer. My next washer will NOT be a GE. I would have put this review on GE’s site, but couldn’t find where they have a site for reviews.

    Purchased a GE washer dryer combo from Hamai Appliance in Kahului, Maui less than 3 years ago. Light use 2-3 loads a week as it's just my wife and I. Took extreme care to not overload or run unbalanced load. Unit still LOOKS brand new but the motor is shot, repairman says parts and labor will cost as much to repair as replace. Neither GE or Hamai Appliance will make good in any portion of the $1300+ purchase which didn’t even last 3 years. I will never purchase any GE product again or any product from Hamai Appliance in Maui

    I have had a full size, front loading washing machine for just over a couple years. We don't use it much as we have two sets in the home. Needless to say, it broke and can't be fixed for less than the cost of a replacement. I have the way GE treated us and will never buy a thing from them again. They are made of cheap parts and break long before they should..

    Sorry I cannot recommend. Washer ties sheets in ropes with clothes often inside rope. Agitator holds water which builds mold and rust on bottom bolt. Had one replaced before it was a year old. Have to add more water as recommended levels barely cover clothing. Have to leave top open after use to dry out and buy cleaner to clean washing machine. Never had to do that with my 16 year old machine of another brand. Even with cleaner I get black mold chips or black globs on the clothes. Dryer filter seldom full as everything seems to go to the outside vent. Have to clean the outside vent about once a week. Why?

    The same dedication to quality that GE puts into building products like jet engine turbines and wind towers goes into their washing machines. GE is an American symbol of industry that was ranked the 14th most profitable large firm in the United States and has even had employees that have won Nobel Prizes.

    • Washer's with many features in one place: GE washers often offer Energy Star certification, stain removal settings, vibration control and an automatic precision dispensing system, all in one machine.

    • Special offers: GE routinely features great deals on washers in its Special Offers section on their website, helping buyers connect with rebates, tax credits and special holiday sales.

    • Washers that look great: Besides offering washers that fulfill nearly every customer's desire, GE washers also come in many colors and finishes, all the way from platinum to ruby red.
