Are you searching for an affordable washer, one that\u2019s a champ against stains and has a lot of washing cycles and options? The best washing machine that fits the bill is GE GTW685BSLWS Top Loader. Not only does it feature 14 washing cycles, and options to alter\u2014it comes with pre-programmed settings to remove deep stains commonly experienced (blood, wine, grass), all for an affordable price.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - GE GTW685BSLWS Review\r\nFeaturing 14 washing cycles and oodles of options to play with, the GE GTW685BSLWS is more than ready to thoroughly wash your clothes any way you want it, for a price that\u2019s hard to ignore.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nWhat full-sized washers like the GE GTW685BSLWS do best is provide washing power, something compact washers such as the Super Deal Portable Twin Tub can ever hope to achieve. With its dual action agitator wash action and stainless steel drum, combined with a high efficiency fabric softener dispenser, your clothes come out clean every time\u2014especially when sent through a deep rinse or warm rinse. It does an exceptional job with stains, and even has pre-programmed settings that alter the way a cycle behaves to remove blood, wine, tomato, dirt and grass, and get it clean every time.\r\n\r\nEven though front loaders use less water on average, and the GE GTW685BSLWS is a top loader, it still uses less water than older top load washers. You can alter where the water fills to Where it suffers is the noise. It\u2019s far louder than any other washing machines we\u2019re familiar with. If you have a dedicated laundry room or closet, this is a moot point.\r\nDesign\r\nWith the GE GTW685BSLWS Washer, GE gelled together the generic design of washers and combined it with a modern dashboard. As such, its dimensions are 27 x 27 x 46 inches, much larger than a Giantex Portable Mini Compact Twin Tub, so it\u2019s better suited for a medium to large home. There\u2019s 14 wash cycles to play with, including additional options to alter said cycles such as spin speed, every time deep fill option, extra rinse cycles, speed wash, auto soak, cycle extra rinses, or a warm water rinse\u2014just to name a few.\r\nValue\r\nThere\u2019s no doubt about it: the GE GTW685BSLWS is a great washer. Certainly not the best GE washer, but for someone on a budget? Absolutely! Provided you have the space to house it. By choosing bigger, top loading washers, you sacrifice space for better performance. The Panda Compact Washing Machine, for example, simply can\u2019t hold a candle to it. This is especially true with its Energy Star qualification, making it highly efficient not at just washing clothes, but on your energy bill as well. All that gives the GE GTW685BSLWS\u2019 excellent value.\r\nGE GTW685BSLWS Review Wrap Up\r\nWhile the GE GTW685BSLWS is noisy, it really paints a picture; it was its only flaw. GE isn\u2019t a slouch when it comes to high quality products, and this particular top loader delivered. With 14 washing cycles to choose from, you\u2019ll always get those stains and grime out of your clothes. And it\u2019s nice the GE GTW685BSLWS is efficient with energy, too. Who doesn\u2019t like a healthier energy bill?
