Plenty of space

It has a 4.3-cubic-foot capacity. That isn't huge, but it's big enough to handle a large load of laundry.

Up close with the display

The display panel is a little busy, but it's fairly easy to navigate.

Overall impressions

The GE GFWS1700HWW isn't the fanciest washing machine we've ever seen, but it can certainly get the job done.
