I have to say I hate this washer! I can't say it's the GE brand itself as much as it is the fact of it being a front loader! I wish I had never bought a front loader! If I had to do it again I would buy a top loader. You have to leave the door open and you have to dry out the seal after every use or else you get mold. Not only that if you don't load it right your clothes stink. If you don't leave the door open or clean it regularly you will have a stinky washer!When you do wash your clothes sure you can take your clothes right out and put in dryer or else they will stink. Also you have to clean out the drain filter every 2 weeks. They don't tell you everything when you buy a front loader!
