GE Top Load Washers - What's Changing for 2019

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Apr 15, 2019 9:00:00 AM

 

GE Appliances is one of the largest appliance brands in the US and was founded over 100 years ago. Their innovations include inventing the over-the-range microwave in 1978 and the first "smart" dishwasher that used sensors to gauge how dirty your dishes were in 1995. They may not be the first brand people think of when they need washers and dryers, but GE has a small but solid selection of top load and front load washers and dryers. 

If you're considering a new GE top load washing machine for 2019, you might be interested to know about GE's model revamp taking place this spring. There are two reasons why this knowledge is valuable: if you want to save money, you may be able to snatch the older model for a lower price; and if you want to avoid discontinued models to ensure you can easily find replacement parts or get the latest and greatest features, you may prefer the newer model. Let's dig into what GE is changing about its top load washer lineup!

Quiet Washing Machine - How to Find a Quiet Model

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Mar 18, 2019 9:00:00 AM

 

More and more, consumers are interested in finding appliances with quiet operation. Noisy refrigerators, dishwashers, and laundry appliances can be especially intrusive in an apartment and homes with open floor plans. If you have a second-floor laundry room or laundry closet, a quiet washing machine might be crucial for your sanity!

Normal sounds in new washing machines include clicking and humming, gurgling or running water sounds as the washer fills and drains, and the sound of the basket spinning up and down in short or long bursts. One of the major factors tied to noise reduction is vibration reduction - the two go hand in hand! Although it's unlikely that you'll find decibel levels for most washing machines (unlike with dishwashers, where there is plenty of competition to be the quietest dishwasher), there are several key features you can look for from different brands that will help you find quiet washing machine models.

Steam Cycle Washer Technology - These Washers Have Awesome Cleaning Power!

Posted by Bob Allaire on Jan 16, 2019 11:00:00 AM

 

If you are in the market for a new washer, you are probably trying to learn about every style and option available to you. One option worth exploring is a steam cycle washer - and you can find more features to consider in our washing machine buying guide, too. These cutting-edge washing machines feature a steam cycle in addition to traditional water cycles.

Steam in a washer provides improved stain removal and can help eliminate odors and prevent wrinkles. It works similarly to a garment steamer. Steam powerfully penetrates the fabrics, and the heat can help sanitize items as well. If you love cleaning with steam, there are also steam dryer models so you can purchase a steam-cleaning pair.

They're still making machines just as durable as the good ol’ days! (Plus: Discover even more information on choosing a new washing machine in our washing machine buying guide!)

Top Loading Washers - Discover the Benefits

Posted by Bob Allaire on Jan 14, 2019 8:30:00 AM

If you are in the market for a new washer, you are probably trying to learn about every style and option available to you. One option worth exploring is top loading washers.

Top load washers offer a variety of tub sizes and offer a similar water and energy-saving story to that of front loaders. They load from the top so you don't have to bend over when loading and unloading the washer. This also eliminates the need for costly bases. Some don’t have agitators, giving you more room in the tub, allowing you to wash larger items such as quilts and bed spreads. (Side note: You can find even more information on washing machines in our washing machine buying guide!)
