Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

We love the steam-clean function that removes stains without any products. Quick-wash mode cleans a full load in under 40 minutes. Internal water heater can boost temperature when needed.
This machine has a large capacity that will help you wash bedding and other bulky things with ease. It is not the most energy efficient we looked at, but it still does some things right, as evidenced by its Energy Star certification.
Washing performance is very good.
The $899 GE GFW450SSKWW front-load washing machine has a few advanced features like delay start, tumble care and special stain-specific settings.
I think the most amazing thing about this purchase is purchasing it from ABT. The service, professionalism and continued excellent service makes appliance purchasing so easy!
What’s amazing is that this washer’s incredible power doesn’t come at the cost of its energy and water efficiency. You can wash a full load of clothes in under 40 minutes without using too many resources, and you can generally rest assured that it’s going to get your clothes properly clean.

What reviewers didn't like

Not as durable over time as more costly models.

Gentleness is just good.
It only scored average in cleaning performance.
Quite large for a stackable machine
