Low Cost to Run
The LG WM2250CW is a mid tier washing machine. After all the test results came in, we didn't feel impressed or disappointed. The washing performance was less than average given the price point. When it first came out, had an MSRP of $799, but we were able see units available for as low as $717. However, the WM2250CW makes up for this shortfall by being slightly ahead of the pack in efficiency.
Good High Efficiency Washer but Much Louder than Expected
This machine gets my clothes clean, uses less water, detergent, and electricity than my last machine and has a huge basket. The basket does not fill all the way but I have ran some pretty big loads and have not noticed any spotting or problems with my clothes. The power rinse option seems to compensate for not filling the basket all the way. My preferred setting is the manual fill Super Load, with cold water for colors and warm for whites and I always use the PowerRinse option.
Very easily goes out of balance during spin cycle
I bought this washing machine from Home Depot 3 months ago. At first, the washing machine was very quiet and operated without any problems and just in the last 3 weeks I have been having trouble with it going out of balance during the rapid spin cycle. Sometimes I have to re-arrange the laundry several times before it can finish spinning. I would not recommend leaving this washing machine unattended because of it going out of balance.
15 different wash settings and 5 water levels
Wash your way with this GE topload washer. Its dual-action agitator makes for easy loading and a gentle yet efficient wash. And you can choose from 15 different wash settings and 5 water levels that is the perfect combination for each load. It even offers a Power Rinse option that removes the dirty water so you can be confident that your clothes are truly clean.
Basic, straightforward washer
The GE GTWN2800DWW is one of the last old-style top-load washing machines that has a center agitator and lets users select the exact water level, temperature and length for each cycle (instead of setting everything automatically). This is a basic, straightforward washer with none of the fancy settings of the modern, high-efficiency machines. It has simple dial controls; automatic bleach and fabric softener dispensers; and a spin speed of up to 630 rpm.
Newer Dumber Technology
These new washing machines are a consumers worst nightmare due to the drastic changes manufacturers have made. The worst is that you cannot lift the lid for any reason, to do so causes the machine to stop. Forget the days of watching the agitator in action. Is it working, who knows? Maybe if they put a glass or even plexiglass window on the lid so you could look in to see if it's working would make it a more tolerable experience.
Very good budget selection
The GE GTWP1800DWW is primarily carried by Best Buy stores, and is one of their lowest priced in-store washers. It's easy to order, and retails at $479.99 (but often is on sale for much less). It comes with 3.7 cu. ft. and 12 wash cycles, but performs a little poorer in energy efficiency. Saving money in the long term is not something this GE is designed for, but it will take a pretty big chunk off the purchase price.
We love this machine. We live in New York City in a 5th floor walk-up apartment, and this machine has been great for us. We feel foolish for not having bought this a lot sooner.
Setting it up is easy. You just affix the dampener on the bottom and then connect the hoses. It took about 20 minutes from the time of opening the box to having it ready for a test run. Have pliers, a wrench, a screwdriver, and a level handy.
Lifts stains better than some full-size machines
If you hate lugging clothes to a laundry room or laundromat, consider making a small investment in the Haier HLP23E. It's easily found on sale for under $250, and it does a really good job lifting stains. Expect to notice its presence on your electric and water bills, however.
All features and capabilities fully loaded
The Haier HLP23E has gotten some attention in 2012 owing to some top ratings around the net. Although this reviewer feels it cuts just a little too close to the price of a full-sized washer, there is no denying that it's a quality model. With a 1.5 cu. ft. capacity, easy sink connector, LED display, 4 wash cycles, and 6 programs, it is essentially just a tiny washer, with all features and capabilities fully loaded.
Noisy, tinny and leaves clothes surprisingly wet
We probably wouldn't have picked this model but it came included with our new Centex home. We have been using it for a month now. It replaced our 10yr old Whirpool HE Calypso model which was much quieter. We are amazed at how noisy this machine is. It seems to do an acceptable job cleaning, but it takes a long time to do a load of wash and the locking lid is a REAL pain in the you-know-what.
Typical 21st Century Junk
've owned my Maytag Bravos 600x washer and dryer for four months now. I read instructions closely since this is the first time I've used a fancy HE washing machine. We chose a top loader because of all the bad reviews on front loaders. Oh how I long for my old time traditional agitator-style machine! I'm not impressed with this washer. There is no way I'm saving energy on my laundry because I have re-wash my exercise clothes because they still smell after one wash.
Worst Washing Machine Ever...If you can even call it a "washing"
This washing machine was the biggest waste of money. It does not provide enough water to even completely cover the clothes. My nice black slacks come out of this washer covered in white soap spots...I use the HE detergent as directed. Those same black slacks came out with the hem ripped twice. The Cabrio wraps clothes around and twists them very tightly. I supposed if you bought a brand new pair of jeans and wanted the "destroyed" look then this washer is for you.
