Had new top loader GE washer delivered 12-4-11, and problems with very first wash. It does not spin out after washing, only drains the water, leaving soap on clothes, then fills for rinse but not enough water comes in to cover clothes, agitates for 15 seconds, then finally spins so violently it stretches the clothing.
I called and was told to use HE liquid detergent, that the machine was not made to spin on the wash cycle or fill to load capacity on the rinse cycle. What the heck is that about? Got new detergent, still soapy clothes, used half of what was recommended for load size, still soapy. I have to wash clothes twice, the second time using no soap as this is now my rinse cycle, if I'm lucky.
This is garbage and GE knows it. Best Buy will not let me return it so I am stuck with a so called energy efficient machine that ends up using more water and electricity, and double the time it should take. I'd love to sell it, but I could not do that to someone. It also leaves a soapy/dirty film on the tub.
It is ruining our clothes. DO NOT BUY GE PRODUCTS...I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING MADE BY GE AGAIN. If any one knows of a good top loading conventional washer, that actually spins and adds water after washing, please post.
What is this country coming to with all the Space Ball Academy graduates that can't design a washing machine that does what it is supposed to do!!! (model #gtwp1000mww)
