GE GFWH1400DWW washing machine- any experience?

illinigirlJanuary 13, 2014

I am looking for a stackable but full sized second washer/dryer for our new house. Since it's a second set it is going in a closet not in a full sized laundry it has to be stackable, however there is room for a full size stackable set. The appliance store where we are getting all our other appliances suggested the set I mentioned above in the subject. I've never had a GE w/d before. I've had the Kenmore HE3t and now the Whirlpool duet. My only requirement cycle wise is the sanitary cycle (therefore internal water heater) and a good capacity. My main washer is 4.3 cubic feet and this GE set has 4.1 cubic feet.

any thoughts on this washing machine please?

Whatever you choose, make sure it isn't a Whirlpool Cabrio.

We purchased one and replaced it with a less expensive model that didn't have a water saver feature.

I don't understand why manufacturers make washers with water saving features.
Isn't the purpose to clean your clothes?

When I ran my new washer for the first time, I watched through the clear lid as it SPRAYED water onto the clothes.

The tub never filled past the halfway line and it never fully saturated the clothes.
The spin cycle threw them so tightly against the side of the washer that I had to peel them off the side. The mudstains on my slacks were still there.

They were more wrinkled than before I washed them.

I have since read reviews that mirror my experience. You might want to check out some of these BEFORE you throw $800.00 down the toilet.

I didn't have the heart to try and push it on someone else so I ordered another machine and let them take the new one away. Whirlpool wouldn't give me my money back. No more business for Whirlpool from me.
