GE Profile WPDH8800J Washer Review & Rating

GE Profile WPDH8800J WasherThe GE Profile WPDH8800J boasts colossal capacity at 4.2 cubic feet, making it one of GE's largest capacity front loading washers. The huge capacity can wash 50 adult sized T-shirts in one wash. At a $1,200 list price, the 8800J will save you a few hundred dollars compared to the 8900J, with many of the same features. This pricetag and product represent good value. Washer highlights include SmartDispense technology, incorporated in pedestal, which automatically houses and dispenses up to 6 months worth of laundry detergent (Powder or liquid) and other washer fluids. This eliminates the need to add detergent for each individual wash. You select your cycle and even tell it what type of stain you have. Then, press start. That's it. It figures out temperature, time, and even the amount of detergent.

This laundry machine is Energy Star rated and is rated at 191 kWh/yr, which is very efficient. The WPD8800J also has GE's H2ition system which senses laundry load size and adjusts water levels appropriately. One of the most expense portions of the wash cycle is the drying phase. The GE 8800J reduces required dry times by spinning clothes at a blazing 1,300 RPM, removing excess moisture. If you purchase the compatible GE dryer, this washer can communicate electronically, via CleanSpeak technology, to instruct the dryer on proper settings based on the type of clothes you just washed. Cycle times are 80 minutes, well below average. Read on for more feature reviews.

Among these are the automatic detergent dispense, which can only be used if the proper GE SmartDispense pedestal is purchased (Approx $600.Ouch!)
