Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you. Delivery does not include installation or parts.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

So clean and fresh!

amicrae 4/24/2020

What a joy to have such clean laundry! And a great design for a machine that has its own room. The machine is sleek and sophisticated looking but simple to use and works hard. Has all of the different cycles you could want and handles all of our laundry with ease. Now to get the matching dryer!!

Stevelove 4/23/2020

I love this washer, it is very easy to use. All the buttons are self explanatory and can be used from younger kids to the elderly. The front loader makes it easy to put clothes in and remove them. It has clearly identifiable laundry soap and fabric softener spots. my laundry has come out clean and fresh. My favorite feature is the smart feature, I get text and notification when my clothes are almost done, when.they are done, and if they stayed in the washer too long. The only thing I didn't like is the seal collects a lot of dog hair.

Definitely the Smartest washer I've owned.

Ben RB 4/22/2020

I have used this washer for about two week now and love it. The delivery company was very professional, installed it and test ran a cycle before leaving. There are multiple things to love about this machine. This is the first washer to dry the gasket to keep it fresh, mildew and oder-free. This is a major issue with most front-load washers I've had in the past. So if you don't want to leave your door open after washing like I do, you can select the "Ultrafresh Vent" option when you finish your wash and that's it. It will then air dry the seals/gasket/interior before powering down. Love this feature, because I prefer the cleaning power of a front load machine. The wifi features are awesome. My laundry is down stairs in the garage, so the wifi comes in extremely helpful. I receive a damp alert notification for example if you want to pull out delicates before they get fully dry. My favorite feature is the smart dispense reservoir that holds about 50 oz of liquid detergent for about 32 normal washes, without refilling the dispenser after every wash. This saves a lot of time, specially when the laundry is down stairs. You still add Softner if you desire in the normal dispenser. Still have not tried all the features on this machine but I am extremely pleased with it so far

Ash86 4/22/2020

I recieved this washer about a month ago and it works amazing. I can put large comforters and wash them with ease as if im using the laundrymat industrial washers. The items get washed perfectly with no issues. The washer is also very quiet i cannot even hear it doing its job absolutely fantastic. It also has a wifi feature where i can connect with my cellphone to begin the wash and also get notifications about when its done which helps me personally because i am constantly multitasking. I love this product and highly recommend it to everyone.

Donnadel31 4/22/2020

I've always heard front load washers have difficulty with mold and collecting water in the rubber part. My daughter has all kinds of allergies so I was so pleased to see the venting system!!!!! Love it ! Super quiet. Easy to use (didn't even read the manual!) it's intuitive!

Never been cleaner

Gigi14 4/21/2020

I have been using this washing machine for a while now and I can honestly say my clothes come out much cleaner than they ever have. This machine is amazing. I can't believe how quiet is is and how large it is in capacity. The features I admit were intimidating at first but it's actually pretty straightforward to use. The odor venting system and the wifi access is beyond genius. I found that I can also get my washing done in less time than before.

Great washer

Niccitobey 4/21/2020

I have been using the ge Ultra fresh front load washer for a couple weeks. I really like this washer. It is very easy to use and has an app that lets me start it or stop when I need to. I do like that fact that it has sensors that detect how much water is needed and temperature the water needs to be for each wash. It is a quiet machine. I like that it has the ventilation to stop it from smelling. They con is how heavy it is to move but on the plus side it makes it very sturdy.

Mdmissymarie 4/21/2020

I have had several front and top load washers in the past few years that I was disappointed with. From smell issues to inability to load balance I'd given up on finding a quality washer. I think I've finally found the perfect washer! It has a quick cycle for small items I need quickly. It has a bulky setting that handled my huge bedding load with no issues. I love the venting option. I really hope this machine stands up to the ultimate test of time. So far I'm beyond happy.

tmifirefli 4/17/2020

I never thought I could fall in love with an appliance but I actually have. This washer is amazing. My clothes are cleaner than they have ever been and I need significantly less time to dry them. Set up was quick and easy. I was a little intimidated by the many functions but this may be one of the easiest appliances I have ever learned to use. Very simple controls that still give you a multitude of options based on what type of laundry you are doing. I have even washed our camping sleeping bags in this washer and they came out wonderful. The Ultra Fresh Vent system keeps this washer from getting any nasty smells and the Tumble Care function keeps my clothes from getting smelly if I can't get them switched to the dryer immediately. I love the app which connects to the washer and tells me a number of different things including how much longer the washer will be running and alerting me when the washer is done. It also reminds me that I have left wet clothes in the washer for those times when you get busy and forget about them. Overall I am extremely pleased with this washer and would recommend it to anyone looking to purchase a new machine.

Amazing, love WiFi

Cjindelaware 4/17/2020

I absolutely love my new GE® 4.8 cu. ft. Capacity Smart Front Load ENERGY STAR® Washer. It's simple to use and has the capacity to fit almost two full baskets of laundry in one load. I did not get the model with smart dispenser because we use powder detergent, although it might have been worth switching to liquid. My absolute favorite thing about this washer is the spin cycle. My clothes are not remotely drippy when I take them out like my previous washer and that is only on the Medium spin cycle, not High or Max. I downloaded the Wi-Fi app easily and love getting notifications when my laundry is almost done, completely done, and again if it's been sitting there a bit too long afterwards. Those with laundry rooms in the basement know what I mean. No more wasted time checking on whether the washer is done, or waiting too long to make sure it's done. I also washed a King size comforter and it fit with no problem. Love this machine!!

Hands down the BEST washing machine I've ever had

maddiegirl 4/16/2020

I've had a few different washing machines over the years and this one beats out all the others by far. We're a family of 5 and I typically do 7-8 loads of laundry per week. This machine holds more than my previous one which allows me to cut down on the amount of loads saving me time AND water. If fits my oversized king down comforter no problem. Very efficient and fairly quiet as well. With my previous washer I had to keep the laundry room door closed when it was running, and I don't have to do that with this one. May seem minor to some, but that makes me happy lol. Now let's talk features... It has every option you could need without being complex. One of my favorite features is the wifi. Easy to connect and it makes doing laundry much easier and I haven't forgotten to move a clean load to the dryer due to the awesome alerts (which also makes it more efficient because I don't have to rewash for forgetting!). I also love love love the smart soap dispenser, that is really a fantastic and valuable feature. And I love the look of this - it's modern and sleek and it's pretty! I was nervous about a front loader because they tend to get a mildewy smell which makes extra maintenance work for me, but I have not had this issue with this washer due to the vent system which is impressive. It's a state of the art machine and performs great every time. Not surprising though with this being a GE, which is a leader in the industry. I definitely feel comfortable and confident with this washer. It makes laundry easier and even, dare I say it, enjoyable! If you're in the market for a washing machine, trust me this is the one.

It's quiet, huge capacity, and love smart dispense

LTCW 4/14/2020

I love my new washer. It's quiet, and it holds a lot. It has many functions and different cycles, which I love. But I think the function I love the most is the smart dispense. It dispenses the right amount based on the amount of clothes in the washer. Sometimes we just have muddy shirts/shorts because my kids were outside playing. I can throw them in there and not have to measure out the amount of detergent. The blue rubber gasket does have a strong smell at first, but after a few washes, it went away. The only complaint, and it is minor, is the color of the door. I wish it was see clear and not black so I can see the inside better.

Nice Product

sandymd 4/14/2020

This GE 4.8 cu. ft smart laod washer is very nice. It is very quiet, has a wonderful high spin cycle that nearly drys your clothes which saves time and energy from using a dryer. The sensing waterfill is great and is another money saver. The automatic smart dispenser is a great feature and so easy to use. I love the my setting cycle for smaller loads and misc. items i need to wash. The ultrafresh vent system is great with drying the washer out. I really do wish it had a light inside to see items that are left in the washer. I have not set my Wifi up yet but hopefully will one day when i have enough time to sit and actually connect with someone to do it. . I am so happy with this GE product that i am thinking of buying the dryer.

Laundry Luxury

Kimberlitic 4/14/2020

I love this washer. I'm coming from a pretty standard top loader to this sleek front loader with options galore and it "talks" to you. It is wifi enabled, and syncs with your phone via an app. The app takes a bit of figuring out with having to pair, and you'll need to reference some model and wifi information that are on stickers just inside the door of the washer. I highly recommend going through the user manual before starting anything and highlighting which features your model has because the user manual has a couple of different models in the same manual. This will also help you determine how best to pair with the app since it asks for some model info. Once paired, you can start preloaded laundry with your phone! So awesome. I really like though that it sends you notifications on the status on the load. I was always really bad at leaving the laundry for days and having to rewash an entire load of laundry just becauseI forgot about it. This will let you know that your clothes are close to done, done, and also have been sitting for a while so you might want to go get them. Another fantastic feature is the Ultrafresh Vent. This allows your washer to vent and minimize any mildewy odors that might occur from moisture sitting in your washer for too long. I really like that this is included because that's one thing I haven't particularly liked about front loading washers in general. The Ultrafresh Vent deals with that nicely. The control lock option is really nice if you have kids. This will prevent them from opening up the door. Speaking of kids (or pets, or clumsy messes like myself) if you need a boost to your cleaning power there's a Sanitize w/ Oxi option so you can really clean your laundry with an Oxi product. Also, the door is reversible. It takes some manual reconfiguration, so it's not like you can swing the door either way at whim, but it's still a nice touch so you can place the washer really wherever it is needed and you don't have to take that into consideration for a decision point. I know this review is really long, but there's just so much to say about this washer. It's a well thought out product that GE clearly developed with the customer in mind. I do a ton of laundry for my family of four, and this washer has made it much easier and more efficient.

Great extra features!!

gtlugz 4/14/2020

My washer was super easy to connect  to my home wifi. Parts of the app I love are the notifications  that my laundry is done and then the half hour reminder when I forget which is alot. I love that my washer measures  the weight and uses the appropriate  amount  of water and soap. I have noticed my laundry has a  lot less  extra water  after the washer is done which m makes drying go faster and my Bills  lower. Another highlighted  feature I love was the fresh vent I use it after I have done many loads and I wanna be sure there is no sitting water anywhere. I am very pleased with this washer and would recommend  it.

James1222 4/14/2020

GE 4.8 cu. ft. Capacity Smart Front Load ENERGY STAR Washer is compact, stackable or can be placed on a pedestal. The control panel is self explanatory and easy to use. The ultrafresh vent system with odor block is designed to eliminate excess moisture that causes odors in your washer. One of my favorite features is the time saver, it reduces the time by optimizing the cycles & temperature to get clothes cleaner faster. I also thought the app SMART HQ was very beneficial and easy to use. SMART HQ lets you know how long the cycle has left and when it has finished. Also SMART HQ lets you know how many loads you have done each day of the week, so if you are trying to save even more on water you can adjust accordingly.

All the features you'll ever need!

Beachgrl23 4/14/2020

I am thrilled with my new GE washing machine. I'm excited to do laundry now. With so many wash cycles it fits every need I have. 4 temperature settings, I finally can wash my towels on hot and get the odor out! 5 soil levels for my son's dirty clothes to my delicates, I can get the clean I need. 4 spin settings gets my heavy beddings extra water out and saves on drying time. The new UltraFresh vent system with odor block is the best thing to happen to front load washers. It stays dry and fresh and clean. I never have to worry about that moldy, smelly door again. I am fascinated by it and have just watched it work it's magic! Having the GE HQ app on my phone it alerts me when my wash is almost done and also when I've left damp clothes in too long. No more forgetting wet clothes until the next day! I love that it alerts me since my laundry room is in the basement and I cannot hear it at times. I can check the app at any time to see the status. Also it keeps track of how many loads I've done. If I have some items that don't really need a whole wash but many just a refresh, I have a sanitize setting. There is also a self clean setting which I did in the very beginning prior to washing anything and I'll do that regularly to kept my machine fresh. The large capacity I can finally wash my king size comforters. I am so happy with this amazing wash machine! The new love of my life!!

Incredible design, innovative tech & clean laundry

AARon81F 4/14/2020

First things first, this thing can clean! We have two little kids, 4yo. and 18mo. and they sure know how to stain clothes. This is the cleanest their clothes have ever looked, all the stains have come out with ease and it seems to run shorter cycles than our old washer. The WiFi connectivity is pretty cool too, being able to get an alert to let you know when your laundry is ready to switch to the dryer is pretty cool, definitely shortens the timeframe and helps you stay on top of the laundry. I must admit, it was a bit tricky to get the App setup, I had to call customer service.. but once installed it works great. I also love the UltraFresh Vent tech, reduces the moister in the drum after the cycle and helps to keep the machine smelling nice and fresh. The Time Saver / Quick Wash cycle is also a bonus for those last minute, quick clean, needs… you know when your daughter spills an apple sauce on her outfit an hour before the party… 20min and done! Not only does this machine clean well, but it is incredibly quiet. We have the unfortunate configuration of having our laundry room right up against a bedroom. You can't even hear it at all! Added bonus, it looks great too! Incredible design, innovative technology, sleek appearance… and clean laundry. I would highly recommend this Washing Machine!

Fantastic washer so many great options and all easy to use, no matter what I put in the washer to clean washer does a fantastic job. The balancing system worked unbelievable well does not matter what I throw in washer towels, bedding, comforter, jackets it will wash without that "clunk clunk" out of balance noise like my other washers, very quite wash. The ultra fresh vent system with odor block is a nice feather to have, take clothes out after a wash and close door and it does its thing with ultra fresh love it. The quick wash works great for the quick wash when I need to wash clothes quick. The sanitize wash is also nice to have come in handy when somebody is sick in the household and you make sure your wash is clean. Wasn't sure how that wifi would work out for me, but absolutely love it, I don't need to worry about keeping an eye when the clothes will be done it, gives an alert on my phone when they are complete and if I forgot I get an alert clothes are in wash damp after 30mins can't tell how many times I forgot about washed clothes to get alerts works great for me. Solid washer built nice has a great overall look no complaints works fantastic glad i got this washer

GE's GFW550SSNWW Washer is great. I recently moved back to top load washers because I hated having to leave the door open to vent to prevent the moldy musty smell. This washer has a venting system that gives you a few extra hours to remember to move wet clothes. I did notice a smell when I accidentally left a wet load for a few days but other than that - no smell, even after leaving a load in for 10 hours! I leave the door closed between washes and there is absolutely no smell other than a clean smell! Our clothes are much cleaner with this washer than they were in our new LG top loader. It is easy to use and with the pandemic has been used daily! I also love having the top to store detergents which I could not do with the top loader. I highly recommend!

Amazing Washer!

karynsart 4/13/2020

Love this washing machine. Very large wash capacity. With a large family this is very important to me. Looks great in my home does not stick out with a modern look. The Wifi app alerts me five minutes before load is done and when load is done it is great. Very quiet when washing. So glad I have this washer!

Awesome washer!

Jeric0 4/12/2020

Have been using this washer for a couple of weeks now and love it! I was a little reluctant going to a front loader having always had a top loader machine. I am so glad I did! Much easier to load/unload and it looks great. It without question gets my clothes cleaner. The large capacity has plenty of room for blankets and comforters. It is extremely easy to use! Love the venting feature that runs after you remove your clothes keeping the washer smelling fresh! The WiFi connection is great so you can be alerted on the app when your wash cycle is completed. The app could use more features such as starting/stopping cycles. Overall this is a fantastic washing machine and would highly recommend!

Amazing

Qmarine 4/11/2020

The GE washer is amazing. The large capacity is perfect for any size family. The digital screen is nice and bright and easy to read. The selection knob is easy to see your selection. It has a little light that shows what you choose. It has 4 compartments, detergent, bleach, pre-wash and softener. The ventless setting helps so much. It helps dry the machine and cut down on odor. You also don't have to leave the washer door open in between use. It is a super quiet washing machine. With the app you can keep track of how much laundry you have done. It also will let you know when the wash load is almost done and when it has finished. It gives you a reminder when laundry has been left in the washer. This is nice for when you are just busy. The GE washer has been a great addition to our laundry room.

Both beautiful and powerful

Busymom of 4 4/11/2020

I am beyond thrilled and pleased with this washing machine! It can hold a large load of cloths ,with busy active four young kids, and it handles my small load of cloths that I have to wash for myself separately as a frontline worker. It's very efficient, quiet and powerful.It handles gentle laundry and large bulky items well. My cloths and blankets come out clean and soft. I love that it has so many cycles and plans. The size is perfect, the design is great and beautiful.It has many app and online advantages that I have yet to research due to lack of time but I am looking forward to explore all the features. I couldn't ask for a better washing machine ! Thank you GE for creating a superb product! I am a proud owner!

Great Performance, Quality and Features

Dez19 4/11/2020

This washer has been amazing. It has the normal selections you would see on any washer but then it takes it a step further adding settings for towels and bulky loads. Then to even fine tune your wash there are more additional settings for load size, water temperature, spin cycle, extra rinse and more. To start we experimented with the load settings and did 10-12 loads to get to know how this washer works. We then attempted to connect the WiFi to the washer. After downloading the app and after a couple of tries was able to get the washer connected to our WiFi. What they show as the gear button in the app is the WiFi button on the washer. Once connected to the app it has washer status, usage, user guide and trouble shooting. On every load we have done the washer has worked flawlessly and our clothes come out nice and clean. What I really love about this washer is the ultra fresh vent. Once I'm done with the wash for the day I just close the door and press the ultra fresh vent button and I'm done. I don't have to wipe out the inside of the washer. Just make sure to put your clothes in, shut the door and then add your soap into the dispenser last because the soap drips down at the opening of the washer. The user guide skips around a lot and is kind of confusing. I absolutely love this washer and definitely recommend it. GE has always been a brand we've trusted and this washer has continued to prove that.

Awesome Unit But Computer Is Touchy

Cornell333 4/10/2020

I love this washing machine! It's easy to use, works great, and does an amazing job!!! The only issue I had was my brand new washer worked twice then stopped working because the power would not turn on. It was very frustrating but a technician came out right away and ordered the new part (the motherboard for the computer) for my new washer that took 3 weeks to get in. This was frustrating. However, GE stepped up and sent out another new washer which has had zero problems!! Annnnnd I still love it!

Wonderful Washer

Cemyles 4/10/2020

If you don't have one, get one! This washer is amazing. Other than it doing the obvious (wash clothes) it has pretty neat features that makes it even better. •It has an easy to turn knob that lights up each function of washing. •The on/off button and the start/pause button are touch sensitive (meaning you don't have to apply pressure with your finger to use these buttons). •There's a vent on the washer door, that helps eliminate moisture while washing. •I am able to use up to 50oz of liquid detergent without having to add at every wash. I just throw in my clothes and wash! •The drum of the washer is slightly larger than the washer I had before! I'm able to fit more clothing in it. •It connects to WiFi. It has an app that it connects to and it sends me notifications about my wash. I can also check the app on my cycles time, pause cycle, and my usage throughout the week. In all, I am happy with this washer. I haven't experienced any issues with it. I can't wait to get the matching Dryer!

Perfection!

JenniferM4 4/10/2020

This washer is a dream come true! It's absolutely perfect. I used to regularly forget my laundry in the washing machine for days at a time. But this washer is a game changer. From having the display on the front showing you how many minutes will be in the cycle, depending on which settings you choose... to sending a push notification to your phone when done AND a reminder after, it is truly a SMART washer. I now love doing laundry, and this GE washer is the reason why. I love so many things about it. - So many wash cycle settings, including my most commonly used delicates, towels, bulky bedding - Being able to change soil/temp/spin settings individually - Push notifications to your phone from the app (you can choose to be notified 5 mins prior to done, when done, and 30 mins after done) - Delay wash button, which is great if you need to run some errands but want your wash to be ready right when you get home - The ultrafresh vent feature, which dries the inside and ensures mold will never be an issue - It spins so intensely that laundry sticks to the top too, that is impressive! - It's the perfect size, large inside without being a huge machine I could go on and on. There are no cons, only pros. Couldn't recommend it more!

Innovative

cmella 4/10/2020

I have been using the GE® 4.8 cu. ft. Capacity Smart Front Load ENERGY STAR® Washer for a few weeks now and I am so happy with it. I am learning new things about it each time I use it. When I first got it I fell in love with the self ventilation it does after each wash. My old washer would always have mold so this is a dream come true. The size is a larger load size and is simple to use. You can use it with or without the app. Downloading the app is easy and so is the set up. You do need wifi to connect to your smartphone. From my phone I can see how many minutes are left in the cycle, what kind of wash it is, and I can even stop the cycle from my phone. You do not have to be right next to the washer to use the app. I have my washer in the basement and I use my phone to control it on the floor above. It allows me to better time manage so I can get more done.

I love to do laundry now

klflute 4/9/2020

We have needed a new washer for a long time and we couldn't be happier with this one. This one is a front-loading washer, and we immediately noticed how much more space there was to do bigger loads of laundry, which is harder to do with top-load washers. This washer can fit 4.8 cubic feet worth of clothes in one batch. In our old washer, it would take forever to wash our son's quilt (that we use to cushion his play area). This washer washes and fluffs the quilt easily, and there is no issue with banging when the wash load is uneven; this washer has technology that naturally balances out the load during the course of the wash cycle. Because everything washes evenly, this washer is pretty quiet; I'm comfortable throwing in a load of clothes while my son is napping. We love the variety of wash cycles that we can choose from; we can manually control the wash/rinse/spin settings, or we can use one of the premade settings such as "whites," "bulky," "delicates," etc. There are ten wash settings or you can customize your own. And the laundry is done quickly! Our old washer would take forever and the clothes would be sopping wet at the end. This washer does more work in a smaller amount of time: most loads are done in 35 minutes or less, and the clothes feel slightly damp but soft and fluffed coming out of this washer. One of our favorite features is the Ultrafresh Vent cycle; the washer will remove excess water that may be left from the wash cycle and will spin on empty to dry the inside of the washer. This keeps the washer from developing mildew and odors. I check the washer after running the Ultrafresh Vent cycle, and it is bone dry inside. It's really a brilliant feature. Also, I recommend downloading the app onto your phone, because this washer is wifi-enabled, and you can be notified when your laundry is done, which prevents wet clothes from getting musty by sitting around in the washer. You can also start your laundry cycle remotely if you want to arrive at home when the laundry cycle is just finishing. I can't say enough how much we love this washer. I used to hate to do laundry, and now I actually like it. Our clothes look great, and they feel nice and clean.

Great washer!

washercrazy 4/9/2020

This is a great washer with a lot of attributes. Firstly, the front loading is nice for shorter people and the venting to dry out the machine after a cycle keeps it from getting mildewy. The cycles are a lot quieter than my previous washer, and while I haven't used it yet much, the app is handy for monitoring what's happening. The smart timer is also a really useful feature.

Great Washer w/ One Minor Issue

DetailzGuy 4/9/2020

Given the issues going on in the world today with COVID, I elected to install the GE GFW550SSNWW myself. With existing hookups and an easily-accessible standpipe drain, install (short of door reversal addressed later) was a breeze. Instructions and online vids abound. If you're even slightly mechanically inclined and patient, you're supported throughout the install and can take this on. Re: the washer, it's a great washer with many useful cleaning and maintenance settings. It has a reasonable footprint (even in our smallish '69n rancher), is solidly built, and simply looks great. Capacity is okay @ 4.8 cubic ft. The washer cleans *really* well compared to our four-year-old top loader. The GE spins out water spectacularly and uses minimal water and detergent, all done relatively quietly. The top-slide-out cleanser compartments are convenient… easily accessible and well-marked. The washer has a venting feature to keep it smelling clean (a major plus for a front-loader). Touch controls are responsive and easily identifiable. There are audible tones that beep (tone can be disabled) when the washer is done washing. The only con I experienced with the washer involved reversing the door (hence the one star off). We went from a top-loader to a front-loader in a confined space. A door-reversal was needed. While a great feature, the task was a bear. GE touts this machine as having an 'easily reversible' door. Technically that's true. You can easily reverse the hardware. Mounting the door back on the washer body was another situation entirely, at least for me. Despite reading and following included instructions and watching online videos in advance and during the procedure, to ensure I would be/was doing this right, pre-stamped holes and pre-tapped screw holes on the opposite side of the washer body (in the recess where the door hinge seats after removing and reinstalling the hole/striker cover on the opposite side) did not align. You must follow the instructions to reverse the door. If you don't, at best, you risk the washer not washing at peak efficiency. At worst, you risk the door not locking right and the machine leaking water. I'm thorough. When I run into a problem, I analyze to figure out what's going on before moving ahead. What I found was that the pre-stamped holes on the opposite washer body door-hinge recess did not allow two metal tabs protruding from the door hinge to seat fully. While I would never recommend that anyone do this, 'gentle' persuasion (with a thick towel providing lots of padding, placed over the substantial hinge, and a few good strikes from a rubber mallet) was needed to get the tabs to seat properly to avoid potentially stripping/cross threading pre-tapped screw holes and to ensure a good door lock and seal. Again, I don't recommend that course of action. You do this, you chance breaking the hinge/machine and voiding the warranty. The door sitting on the opposite side was not an option for my setup. The choice to persuade the door was on me. If the hinge broke I knew I risked the need to buy a new hinge (and possibly a new door) out of pocket. A similar choice with different outcomes would squarely fall on you. I was willing to take the chance after getting a feel for the amount of 'persuasion' the machine and hardware could take. YMMV. Once seated and installed, 45 minutes later, the door and seal worked perfectly. But, I won't be switching the door again. After a test wash (no soap, no linens… and then soap, no linens, to ensure the door was definitely seated well), I was ready to take on WiFi connectivity. Re WiFi and the app, I had no issues with connecting the washer to our network (after contacting a spectacular rep at GE support to get my full password due to the door sticker not having the password completely printed). A 'just-is,' make sure to have a landline or second phone handy if you need help connecting the washer to your home network through the GE Laundry app. Speaking of the app, the GE Laundry app (not well-rated in the app store) is iffy at best. The app connects the washer to your home network (necessary for Alexa/Google assistant connectivity and software/firmware updates). It allows you to start wash remotely (if you have delayed start enabled for a load) or stopping a load once started. The app also tells you when your wash is almost done, when it's done, or lets you know if a wash load sits too long after all cycles are done (a much nicer feature than I first imagined). Finally, the app informs you (and likely GE and third parties) about washing trends (water use, etc.). The Geneva Skill (Amazon Alexa), once launched via Alexa keyword, serves the same purpose as the app. For Google Assistant, the app is U+ Connect Action. So, would I recommend getting this GE washer? Absolutely. Especially if you don't need to reverse the door, this is a phenomenal machine that I'm sure, given that it's backed by a 10-year motor and basket parts warranty (1 year full-appliance parts and labor), will provide years of use and a host of great, eco-friendly, and cost-conscious washes. WiFi and washer smart connectivity is simply icing on the cake. When topped off by a sleek, eye-pleasing design, the GFW550SSNWW is definitely worth the purchase.

Absolutely love it

Faye813 4/9/2020

This is currently my third week owning and using my new GE washer and I absolutely love it. It is very easy to use and I love that the buttons are sensory by touch. I love the design and the size of the washer. I can actually fit a whole comforter set and the settings are very specific in catering to what you are washing. One of my favorite features is the UltraFresh Vent System which basically airs out your washer after each use so it doesn't create an odor while the door is closed which is an issue I had with my previous washer. You can also download the app which is very user friendly and lets you know when your wash is finished, how many cycles you have washed and has helpful information for troubleshooting if you run into a problem. The app also allows you to connect other GE products that you own on the same app. I am enjoying this washer so much that I am currently looking to purchase the matching dryer to complete my set. GE has always been a great quality brand to me and this washer has been living up to my expectations and to their reputation.

BEST WASHER of the DECADE!!!!

Dogwoman 4/9/2020

This washer is amazing and should be positioned with consumers as an investment in an appliance thAt is a 'value- add." The amazing features from the construction of the drum - which clearly sets this washer apart from its competitors- to an option for a remote start with specialty cycles and WiFi capability are outstanding. The Ultrafresh vent system with odor block is a godsend for any consumer. During the trial, all cycles were tested and as predicted- no issues- amazing results also recognizing the exceptional rinse capabilities. The instruction guide is clear and concise. I can't wait to purchase the partner dryer! Thank you GE for your continued commitment to innovation and technology!

donnatr6 4/9/2020

This washer was so easy to set up and start using. I just hooked up the necessary tubes and attachments and I was good to go after installing the WiFi app on my phone. I never knew until I got this washer that there was a thing as a smart washer. It saves loads of time and money for my household. I can put all the necessary detergents and bleach for each wash then add them when needed to the wash just with a push of a button on my phone. It truly is a must have for me. It cleans my clothes better than my old washer machine ever did. Definitely would recommend this item to friends and family members.

Beautiful Washer!

SarahMar 4/9/2020

We absolutely love this machine. It is very quiet, and it cleans clothes really well. It has so many settings, I don't know if we'll ever even use them all! My favorite feature is the vent system, since we had issues with mold accumulation in our old front load washer. The door shuts all the way, too, so it doesn't look like someone forgot to shut it. It doesn't just have slots on the door to allow air to flow in a out either, it actually opens up vents and circulates outside air while the tub spins (silently).

This is an amazing washer, I love the ultra-fresh vent system, keeps clothes smelling nice and clean. The quick wash cycle is also great, the ability to throw in a small load and get it out in only 20 minutes is perfect. I definitely recommend this washer to anyone who likes to keep hassle to a minimum.

Steph0 4/8/2020

I am so happy with my new washer! After years of using an old washer I finally made the switch - and what a difference. The wifi capability and app are awesome, my favorite part is that it notifies me when the load is done and when it's been sitting for 30 minutes. This is great for my basement washer, i never have to check on it or risk forgetting about loads anymore! It was also super easy to switch the direction the door opens - I did it myself and I am not handy in the least. I am so glad I finally upgraded, this washer is great!

This is honestly the best washer I've ever seen. It cleans so, so well. My sons jacket had adhesive glue stuck to it and I've washed it atleast 20 times in our old washer without it coming off. I washed the jacket one time in this new GE washer and the jacket is now spotless! It's crazy how well it cleans. The wi-fi capability is also awesome! I love that I can be on a different floor in the house and know exactly when the wash is done. Great buy, highly recommend!!

Great extra features!!

Gtlugz01 4/7/2020

My washer was super easy to connect  to my home wifi. Parts of the app I love are the notifications  that my laundry is done and then the half hour reminder when I forget which is alot. I love that my washer measures  the weight and uses the appropriate  amount  of water and soap. I have noticed my laundry has a  lot less  extra water  after the washer is done which m makes drying go faster and my Bills  lower. Another highlighted  feature I love was the fresh vent I use it after I have done many loads and I wanna be sure there is no sitting water anywhere. I am very pleased with this washer and would recommend  it.
