GE Washer Model #GTWN2800DOWW
on November 18, 2012
This is my first experience with GE products. My parents only bought Sears products during my childhood and for 23 years I have owned Sears Kenmore models, Samsung, and Whirlpool appliances.
This is my second GE washing machine in the past 6 months, and it is definitely another huge dud.
Can you say never again! I originally purchased the GE 3.6 DOE CU. FT. Model GTWN4250MWS (White) stainless interior no agitator bar with matching dryer for $1520.00.
It simply did not wash even a small load (see my review on this model). I washed one t-shirt in the machine and it came out dirtier than when I put it in--I kid you not.
I showed it to the GE tech who serviced the machine, and of course he could not say anything even when he saw it with his own eyes.
To appease me, GE offered me choices. Replace the machines with new machines within a similar price range, or upgrade and pay hundreds of dollars more for their top of the line models.
I chose the match and they replaced the other machines with the GE Washer Model #GTWN2800DOWW, and a matching dryer.
Well folks, apparently GE knows very well they're selling a mechanical mess. The load switch on this particular model gets stuck in position and floods your house--ask me how I know.
I have new construction and it is good I was paranoid and bought flood insurance, and I have a home warantee.
The reset switch is suppose to automatically switch back by itself, but as the tech stated, "Sometimes it gets struck in position and overfills and over flows."
He also found that I needed a replacement part in the machine so we made an appointment for him to return on the Tuesday, and he never showed.
As soon as I get my tax return, I am selling these two buckets to a second hand appliance shop with full disclosure, and upgrading to Samsung or Kenmore.
