 o
GE 2.6 washer?

Any info/input on the new GE 2.6 FL washer? It does have a heater but haven't seen anything on a matching dryer for stacking. The dryer is listed at the GE website.

Will see if Lowes has it/them. The max spin for the washer is listed as 1400 rpm!

Wonder who makes it/them.

Very similar to the Bosch Vision series (that are **not** made in Europe). Door shape and fascia trim are identical

I inquired to GE about the water heater on their new compact FL 2.6 set. I asked them if the water heater was capable of heating the incoming water to a specified temperature in their respective cycles or does it only heat water to hot in the Sanitary/Hot cycle and this is what they said:

The HydroHeater in your WCVH4800KWW uses water temperature to reduce bacteria and provide better cleaning for the really tough stains. Assuming a hot water heater setting of 120 degrees, and an average ground water temperature of 53 degrees, the Hydroheater will fill with incoming water to approximately 120 F degrees for HOT and 105 degrees for WARM and 65 degrees for COLD. 120 F degrees incoming water is gradually heated to 160 F degrees over the course of the wash cycle.

Not sure I understand this. Does it mean it will heat:

-your incoming hot water(120 degrees required) to to 160 Degrees gradually(Sanitary cycle)?

-your incoming cold water (53 degrees required) to 105 degrees(warm cycle) and 65 degrees (Cold cycle)?

Thanks,
John

Anymore opinions on this machine and the matching dryer?

The dryer of my MAH2400 stack is in meltdown. After replacing a 4 year old motor last April, the replacement is starting to grind after only 8 months. I'm going to get rid of them both.

I was interested in this set but couldn't find hardly any reviews/info on it. I went with the Bosch Axxis set in early Summer(Axxis Plus washer with Axxis Vented Dryer) I couldn't be any happier. Click on the link below to view my review and picture.
