I really expected this washing machine to be a great one. Sad to say it isn't so. Energy Efficiency It doesn't use too much energy, but I wonder if that would have anything to do with its low agitation problem. Cleaning Time This GE Profile washing machine has a normal cleaning time, but does not get the job done the first time. Performance This washing machine does not seem to clean the clothes as well as I expected. With it being a GE Profile, I expected for it to be a high performance machine, but was completely disappointed to see that the clothes came out a bit dirty as if not enough water had been used. Ease of Use The washing machine is pretty easy to use since it is a top loader and that was one of the reasons I purchased it for my mother so that she would not have to be bending over to use her washer. Design The design of this washing machine is one of simplicity but unfortunately in this case, looks are deceiving. It looks as if it can get all your wash done in one try due to the outside looking bigger than the inside, but in reality you end up having to sometimes even wash your load two times to get it looking clean. Durability I have only had it for a year so I can't really say, but I am not so sure it will last too long.
