Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

This washer is awesome. Had doubts about the amount of water being used to wash, but to my amazement everything is clean!!!!! And as a 70 yr old used to a tub full of water,I am impressed. Kudos. And I am glad I paid for what I got.

IMuhappy 5/9/2022

Had this washer a bit over 1 year. It makes loud rattling sounds during the spin cycle. It goes into "balancing" mode even when it's spinning with absolutely no vibration and refills 3 or 4 times each load.

Too soon too truly rate

Arthur22 3/22/2022

I have had this appliance only a few weeks so I cannot give a thorough rating. So far, it works well. One thing to be aware of is that except for the smallest loads, you should always press "Deep Fill", If you do not, some of the clothes are likely to remain above the water line for the entire wash cycle. I sometimes press deep fill several times to ensure that all the clothes are wet.

Young2128 2/11/2022

We went from a front loader to an old fashioned top load washer to this one. We love this washer. It handles large loads efficiently and is even bigger than our old washer. It uses less water and the clothes still come out clean. We have put this washer to the test and love everything about it

Tina Z 1/30/2022

Great washer. First time purchasing a new washer since 1985. Always bought rebuilt ones which were dependable. This is my first HE washer. Had to buy a new dryer Spring 2021. Impressed with the GE Dryer I bought so I chose another GE appliance. Would highly recommend.

Great water efficient washer

GESarah 11/20/2021

I love my washer. It has so many features and it really gets all the water out when it spins which has helped with drying time for me. Only complaint i have is that you really have to get the clothes in the barrel evenly or else it has trouble spinning.

American made washer with great features!

Sterling 140 10/18/2021

This appliance was easy to install and simple to use right out of the box. Cycle controls offer many options. The washer has a large family sized capacity. When running a cycle, it makes a little more noise than expected at this price point. The digital display with estimated run time is nice. There are features on this washer that are usually found on more expensive machines.

Awesome washer and I'm super picky

Taylor Times Three 10/4/2021

Finally found a washer that will actually deep fill ❤️❤️❤️ I have returned 3 in the search. We have pets and my husband is an industrial electrician so our laundry is dirty and needs it sit in water to get clean. This is the first of the new washers that actually "deep fill" all the way up when you press and HOLD the deep fill button. Would highly recommend this washer.

AmericanMan82 9/14/2021

Washer works well, although I do not like high efficiency function because it doesn't fill enough for large loads even on deep fill setting. I have a family of 6 and it's not enough. I'll pay more for water instead of HE function.

Mount-Washmore

John Lien 9/2/2021

Laundry can be a mess of stressful business. It's a wheel of fortune: you pour some soap, set the temp, and hope for the best. Most people just like any gamble spins and loses. Thankfully this washer rigs the odds ever in your favor. Okay, I know what you're thinking this lady is lame and crazy but hear me out. The GTW685BSLWS has 14 different cycles to customize and pre-set to LITERALLY get out your laundry's worst nightmare stains.(blood,dirt,wine,) This full-size washer is easy on energy, who doesn't like a healthier energy bill? The only drawback to this washer is the noise but if you have a dedicated room for your washer and dryer it's nada problem. The stainless steel drum is huge, I mean HUGE (see my pictures) for the adorable price and results, I dare you to find another washer beat this one. It's not the BEST BEST GE has to offer but again you are not going to find a better budget washer for your family. This is coming from a family of 5. Thank you GE for making such an efficient, affordable, and all around solid washing machine that will last my family years!!

Broken in less than 2 years and with a single user

sad GE consumer 8/18/2021

Worked fine for 23 months then the control panel went nuts. I tried to unplug to reset it multiple times for varying lengths of time. The machine still does not work. It is so frustrating to spend hundreds of dollars for an appliance for it to last less than 2 years when most people would expect it to last at least 8-10. This washing machine was used by a single person not even a family.
