This bargain washer tackles the basics with easeGE's $650 GTW485ASJWS washing machine merges traditional design with modern tech.
[MUSIC] So most of the washing machines I reviewed had some fancy features, some really exciting bonus options, but this one actually has none of that. And I'm okay with it. Mostly because it costs just $650, which makes it an entry level washer. But it still has 13 cleaning cycles, which is the same as some much more expensive GE top-load models. And it also has a unique feature called deep fill'. Essentially, if there isn't enough water in the bin, or you think there is not enough water in the bin, just push this button and it'll add more water. That doesn't do a lot for you in terms of efficiency, but It might give you a better clean overall the one problem is that it only has 4.2 cubic feet of capacity so compared to most toppled models that have over 5 cubic feet this is pretty small. It also didn't do great in terms, In terms of performance, because it had traditional agitator inside its a little bit tougher on clothes than todays impeller style models that dont feature the agitator. That being said is still did pretty well especially considering the price, if youre looking for a really straightforward simple budget option, I would recommend the simple GE top load washer.
