Companion Dryers: Electric - GFDN120EDWW Review | Gas - GFDN120GDWW Review




Washer Pros and Cons
Cleaning Cleans with a high-efficiency (HE) wash system, but does not employ an internal heater. HE wash systems use gentle wash motions that are easier on your clothing, require less water, and have more internal space without a central agitator.  
Spin Maximum spin rate is about average for a new washing machine. Higher spin RPM removes more moisture from clothing and reduces dryer cycle time. Can significantly save on energy costs, especially when coupled with an electric dryer.  
Energy Energy Factor is 5% higher than average. Washing machines with higher Energy Factors are more efficient and will save you money by using less energy. Ranks in the top 45% of new clothes washers for BETTER energy efficiency.
Water The GFWN1100HWW Water Factor is 22% lower than the average new washing machine. More efficient washers have lower Water Factors and will use less water to operate. Ranks in the top 10% of new clothes washers for BEST water efficiency.
Cycles Cycles and options are 30% lower than average. Less operating flexibility may be an issue if you have a wide array of fabrics or soil conditions within your family. Ranks in the lower 5% of new washers for FAIR program selection and flexibility.  
Price Price per cubic foot is 12% lower than average. Based on the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), each cubic foot costs about $29 less than the average new washer. Ranks in the top 40% of new washing machines for BETTER price efficiency.


GE GFWN1100HWW Washer

GE GFWN1100HWW



Performance Ratings
Steam No Steam Cleaning - Does not have the capability to produce high-temperature steam. Steam can gently penetrate fabrics and is very effective on soil removal. Steam cycles are now available on about 50% of newly manufactured washers.  
Sanitize No Sanitize Cycle - Does not have the option to sanitize clothing by raising water temperatures to high levels that kill many types of bacteria. Bleach or OxiClean may be a partial alternative depending on your chemical sensitivity.  
Allergen No Allergen Certification - The GFWN1100HWW is not certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) or the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) to reduce allergens such as dust mite and dander with high temperature water.  
Temp
Control
Auto Temp Control - Automatically regulates the hot and cold water supply to ensure that the wash water is at the proper temperature for the cycle selected. On cold winter days the hot water runs longer or more often to compensate.
Heater No Internal Water Heater - Water temperatures cannot be increased beyond your home's hot water tank supply. Internal heaters are necessary for steam cleaning capability and are the preferred method to sanitize clothes with high temp water.  
Water
Level
Automatic Water Level - Designed with sensors that detect the load size and then adjust the water level to achieve the best cleaning and rinsing performance. Convenient feature that eliminates guessing and saves water costs.
Drum Stainless Steel Wash Drum - Stainless steel is a durable wash basket material that resists corrosion, stains, and chipping. It is superior to porcelain or plastic. Over 90% of new washers produced today have stainless steel drums.
Vibration Added Vibration Control - The GE GFWN1100HWW is advertised to have advanced features to help control vibration and related noise. Details of these anti-vibration features are not readily available and the true effectiveness is unknown.
Wash
Type
Drum w Paddles - Front load washer with a rotating drum and paddles that lift and drop clothes. Very effective washing mechanism compared to the older agitating machines. Gentle on clothing and uses significantly less water.
MSRP $800 - Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is 25% lower than average. You should save about $265 compared to the average-priced washer. Ranks in the top 20% of new washers for BEST overall price. Also check the cost per cubic foot.
Motor 1 Year Warranty - Standard one-year parts and labor warranty on the washer drive motor. The drive motor is one of the more expensive components to replace and several brands offer longer part warranties of up to 10 years. Warranties are subject to change.  


Convenience Ratings
Capacity 3.6 cu ft - Interior capacity is about average for a new washing wachine. Smaller washers generally cost less, but if you want to minimize the time you spend in the laundry room, a larger washer will likely save both time and money in the long-run.  
Periodic
Tumble
No Periodic Tumble - After the wash cycle completes there is no extended tumbling of the clothes. Periodic tumbling, especially with circulating air, keeps the clothes fresh if you are delayed in transferring them to the dryer.  
Time Remaining Time Display - The GE GFWN1100HWW includes a digital time display at the top of the washer that shows estimated remaining cycle time. Just glance at the display while you're working and plan your time accordingly.
Delay Delay Start / End - You can program the wash cycle to start or end several hours later when you wake up or arrive home. Allows you to organize laundry chores around your schedule, or take advantage of lower, off-peak, utility rates.
Dispenser Detergent, Softener, Bleach Dispenser - Bleach, fabric softener, and detergent can be preloaded into the GE GFWN1100HWW dispensing trays and automatically released by the washer at the optimum time in the wash cycle.
Settings 12 Temp-Soil-Spin Settings - 4 Temperature, 4 Soil, and 4 Spin settings. About average number of settings for a new washing machine. The more settings available, the greater the flexibility in caring for a wide range of fabrics, stains, and conditions.  
Quick
Wash
Quick Wash - In a hurry? Forget to wash a garment for today's special event? This washing machine has a fast wash cycle that can have your clothing ready in much less time than regular cycles.
Wash-Dry No Overnight Wash & Dry - Like most washers, this model does not have the unique capability to both wash and dry your clothes overnight. A few washers can continue to tumble the clothes and circulate drying air after the wash cycle has ended.  
Drum
Light
No Drum Light - There is no internal lighting of the wash drum area when loading or unloading clothes. Sometimes shadows or an unlit laundry room can hide a stray sock that remains missing until the next wash cycle.  
ADA ADA Compliant - Complies with Federal American Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations. Controls and operating mechanisms are within 48 in and 15 in defined reach distances, and can be easily operated with one hand.
Wi-Fi No Wi-Fi - This washing machine is not Wi-Fi Enabled or Wi-Fi Ready. It cannot be remotely programmed, operated, or diagnosed through a home Wi-Fi Internet connection or Smartphone. It is not Smart Grid or Smart Meter capable.  
Detergent
Supply
No Detergent Reservoir - Like most washers, this machine does not have a reservoir that holds a large supply of detergent. A Few brands such as GE, Maytag, and Whirlpool offer new washers with multi-day detergent and fabric softener storage.  
Reverse
Door
No Reversible Door - Like most front load clothes washers, the door is fixed and cannot be changed to open from the other side. Only a few brands such as Electrolux and Kenmore offer washers with reversible door capability.  
Stackable Stackable - Front load washers can be stacked vertically with a companion front load dryer. If you have a small laundry area this is a very convenient feature. It also places the dryer at shoulder level for easier loading.
