About - GE GFWH2400L[WW]

The GE GFWH2400L[WW] is part of the washing machine test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, front-loading washing machine models like the GFWH2400L[WW] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Washing performance:
This reflects the degree of color change to swatches of fabric that were included in an 8-pound and maximum capacity test load of mixed cotton items using the machines' most aggressive normal cycle. (We do not use special cycle or option buttons.)

Energy efficiency:
This score is based on the energy needed to heat the water for 8-pound and maximum loads using a warm wash and cold rinse. We consider both gas and electric water heaters, and include electricity needed to run the washer and energy needed for drying. Washers that extract more water are scored higher.

Water efficiency:
This score denotes how much water it took to wash our 8-pound load and each machine's maximum load. On models that didn't set the fill level automatically, we used the lowest fill setting that sufficed for the 8-pound load. We then calculated water used per pound of clothing.

Comment:
The GE washer was fine for two years, then suddenly we couldn't wash towels, blankets, sheets any longer without violent thumping, shaking etc. <br /><br />We tried various load variations according to the manual and we continually had to stop the wash and readjust the towels, etc. When we got tried of it banging into the walls and violently shaking & thumping we called the GE repair man who said front loaders do this all the time. He ran diagnostics on the digital display, and charged us $80. <br /><br />That was six months ago. Since then the washer has:<br />** leaked all over the floor 3 TIMES.<br />** The violent thumping occurs no matter the size of the load or selected cycle. <br />** It stops in the middle of the load no matter what cycle for no reason and you have to restart it.<br /><br />I wish I could say to people sure you can wash comforters, sheets, blankets but for a large capacity washer it doesn't do the job.
How long have you owned it:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I am totally unhappy with my machine. It worked well for the first two months or so but after awhile it started to let less and less water inside. After awhile it got so little water a face cloth could drink up the amount of water that entered in the washer. After 3 GE techs came to make repairs to control board and to something else, it still has not worked correctly. Well currently I am in the process of getting PC Richards to return it and refund my money. Would not tell anyone to get this one, no matter the cost.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This washing machine does a great job of cleaning all the laundry for our large family. We wash a lot of clothing and other items (bath towels, bedding, and blankets), and so far it has handled the large loads very well.<br /><br />I even washed our queen size down comforter, and it came out beautifully. <br /><br />We wash delicate items on the hand wash setting, and we've been very happy with the results. <br /><br />Our washer and dryer live in our very humid basement/garage.
