Loved my last GE washer, but I had that one at least 8 years, before they decided to "improve" it, and I am not a fan of this "replacement". Yes, it's quiet, but it also makes clunking noises within the cycles. Yes, it uses less water, which is a good thing, but I want enough water to cover my clothes, and that does not happen unless you wash less clothes than the load level, and that's still no guarantee. You have to use the fabric softener dispenser as a result of the lower water level, and it clogs quickly, spitting out clumps after awhile. And I don't think it spins the water out nearly as well as it should. And, I've only had this washer less than two months! Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I want a washer that agitates the clothes with plenty of water so that I know they're getting clean. Really disappointed in this washer--wish I'd fixed my old one instead.
