Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Haier Encore GWT450AW Super Capacity Washer

Haier's 3-3/5 cubic-foot super capacity top load washer is your helping hand for cleaner clothes and efficient wash cycles. Housed in a corrosion resistant steel cabinet, a stainless steel tub uses a pulsating wash system that gently washes clothes without the tangling and pulling that can occur with agitator washers. On the outside you'll find easy to use controls that include seven wash cycle selections.

Energy Star Compliant


The Encore 3-3/5 cubic-foot washer is ENERGY STAR® qualified and uses less water and energy than traditional washing machines. The Encore has been designed to take advantage of High-Efficiency detergent, like Tide HE, to clean your clothes. The Encore uses about 24 gallons of water per average load, while traditional washers use over 40 gallons.

Encore Design Features

Encore Design

We modernized the appliance from the outside in. Instead of the traditional square design, the edges are curved. By redesigning the cabinet molding and the console, we have added a large inset handle to ease opening and closing the lid.

The floating tub system uses saline solution in the tub ring to help keep loads balanced. The system can effectively handle large and heavy loads to maintain a quiet and uninterrupted spin cycle. Haier's unique damping suspension system acts as a shock absorber. All of this works together to counteract the weight of your laundry and prevent the washtub from hitting the inside of the cabinet.

The Inside Action

Water Saving

This high-efficiency model features a stainless steel washtub and concave shaped pulsator with fins at the bottom of the tub. The pulsator works to create a turbulent wash action. The powerful wash action is coupled with shower rinse technology to provide superior wash results to that of traditional agitator washers. All of this with less energy and less water.

The pulsator wash creates an environment of low abrasion. Less twisting and tangling is overall better for clothing, especially delicates. This system keeps clothes moving rapidly, not intertwined, which washes the clothes more evenly. The fins on the tub and the pulsators help to circulate loads top to bottom, which minimizes wear and tear on clothing. This helps to obtain an optimum washing performance; and a washer that is gentle on clothes means they will look better, last longer, and maintain their shape. Along with the operation, Encore allows your clothes to get stunningly clean.

Options, Choices, Selections


Create the best wash program for your wash load by selecting from the seven wash cycles. You can fine tune the default options by choosing from 4 load sizes, and 3 wash temperatures. Follow the status of your wash from pre-wash to End with the illuminated cycle progress indicators. The built-in bleach dispenser, located underneath the lid, is perfect for making those whites extra white. There is also a fabric softener dispenser to keep your clothes feeling fresh and new. All of cycles and options available on your new washing machine are listed below. With a wide range of options, you have the freedom to control how your clothes are washed.

Euromonitor International named Haier the number one laundry brand in the world.

Only after careful consideration and eight hours of research I decided to go with this unit. This agitator-less, "pulsating" washer really gets clothes SO clean! Traditional top loading washers use 40 gallons of water. So I was happy to learn that this unit only uses 24 gallons of water during the entire wash cycle. It has no agitator, so it's extremely gentle on clothes as well as increasing it's load capacity. Clothes come out slightly damp, so it cuts down on dryer time. And it has to be one of the quietest units I have ever experienced, even on spin cycle. After visiting their company website, I found out that this not so well known company, is actually the #1 selling washer in the world! And they are also the official washer of the NBA. I'm VERY pleased with my purchase!

This washer is great at cleaning clothes and extracting excess water from load. However the spin cycle is a little loud. Other than that I have no complaints.

This washer has some power! It washes my clothes really thoroughly and they smell so fresh. its really quiet, has alot of room compared to washers with agitators, and is more gentle on clothes. unlike front loaders whose shocks wear out in time the top loader has no shocks and wont wear out in time. the only thing i have to say negatively is that you would think that you just connect the hoses and plug it in and it would work, which it did, but the water was just running out onto the floor from underneath because an underneath hose and magnetic plug was not connected or screwed in after cleaning our entire laundry room floor of water twice we figured out what was wrong..afterward it ran beautifully and was worth the fiddling!...i would buy this washer all over again!

Later Review edit: so a few months back the machine started to make a motor problem noise and the company sucked at getting us an answer to our problem..if you arent in their servicing area dont even bother buying products from them. on the other hand after almost 2 months of fighting with them on whether they were going to do something about this broken machine or not they ended up sending us another brand new machine and not taking the old broken one back. Ive already had 2 scares with this 2nd new machine but i rebalanced the load and it did ok after that. I would never ever buy from this company again.

Even later review edit: The 2nd new machine we have is still working just like washed soooo well that your clothes WILL more than likely tangle.... but the clothes you KNOW are clean. so far NO funky smells have built up either. I like the washer but ONLY if you are in the companys service area.

My less than 9 MONTH OLD Haier Super Plus Capacity Encore Washer broke down on
Oct 2,2012 without finishing the rinse cycle. The clothes as usual were tied up in knots. This machine is still under warranty. We called Haier and they said they would send a repairman on Oct.9,2012 at 9:00 a.m. I took the day off work and waited.
No call, no repairman.
I called Haier again and spoke to Gareth. He said they would try to get someone as soon as possible and that a repairman would be at our house at 4 pm Wed or maybe sometime Friday. That was not acceptable to us. We need a date and time. Haier did not call.
We called back and spoke to Jeff and he said someone would be here at our home in 3-5 business days at 4:00 pm and would call to confirm and we should keep a log of all money spent at the Laundromat. I was here every day at 4:00 pm.
No call, no repairman.
Called Haier again. Told Jeff if the washer was not repaired or replaced by Oct 17 2012 we expected a refund of every penny spent on the washer & the shipping costs.
I called back on Tues am Oct 16 to the corporate office to complain about the lies told to me by the Customer Service Dept about sending someone out to repair the Haier washer. Spoke to Karen who said she was the Vice President. When she was told about the runaround and the lies, she said she would call us back the same day in the afternoon at which time she said she would either find someone to fix the washer on the 17th, or would arrange to have a new washer brought to us and the defective washer removed.
No call, no repairman, no new washer, still have the old.
I called this afternoon Oct 18,2012 and left a message for Karen saying nothing happened on the 17th.
