GE – 5.0 cu. ft. Front-Load Washer Review

Model numbers: GFW850SNWW, GFW850PNRS, GFW850PNG


  • Integrated smart technology
  • Lots of different cycles and load sizes
  • Features designed for sanitizing and removing allergens


  • Not budget-friendly
  • Not for buyers looking for a more basic washer

GE Appliances’ GFW850 front-load washing machine has the latest technology and features, with a capacity of 5.0 cubic feet; the largest capacity in our ratings is only a little bigger at 5.2 cubic feet. Available in three colors (White, Sapphire Blue, and Diamond Gray), this front-loader features a sizable silver control knob on the backsplash and a stainless steel basket. With a score of 3.7, the GFW850 tied for third in our Best Washing Machines of 2021 rating and also ties for third in our Best Front-Load Washing Machines of 2023.

The GFW850 retails for $1,100 and up. There are 12 different cycles to choose from with this unit, and Wi-Fi connectivity called SmartHQ permits starting, stopping, and monitoring your laundry, along with receiving updates and notifications throughout the cycle.

This efficient washer uses 158-kilowatt hours, earning an Energy Star certified badge.

The GFW850 comes with UltraFresh with OdorBlock, which GE says dries out the tub and rubber gasket, preventing mold and smells from building up, an issue with front-loading machines. Antimicrobial agents built into the gasket, dispenser, and draining system further protects the components against germs and fungus.

Running a towel around the gasket at the end of a load and periodically rinsing the dispenser may prevent mold as well, so some buyers may not want to pay for this additional technology.

According to GE, the sanitizing cycle in the GFW850 can kill 99% of common bacteria as well as allergens such as dust mites. The 1-Step Wash + Dry cycle washes and then uses fresh air to dry a small load.

A dispenser automatically distributes detergent for up to 32 loads, a handy time saver. GE Appliances recommends using a low-sudsing detergent appropriate for a high-efficiency machine.

How Much Does the GE GFW850 Cost?

The GE GFW850 front-loading washer starts at $1,100 for a white finish. Additional colors such as “Sapphire Blue” and “Diamond Gray” cost $100 more. A color-coordinated matching pedestal with a pullout drawer is $249 for white and $279 for other colors.

GE GFW850 5 cu. ft. Front-Load Washer vs. the Competition

GE GFW850 vs. LG WM3900 4.5 cu. ft. Front-Load Washer

When shopping for front loaders, the LG WM3900 is a logical competitor for the GE Appliances’ GFW850. Both machines retail for around $1,100 and offer similar features including Wi-Fi, a stainless steel tub, and allergen-fighting cycles. The LG WM3900 with a 3.8 earns second place in our list of Best Overall Washers of 2021 and Best Front-Load Washing Machines of 2021.

The WM3900 has 10% less capacity than the GE washer. Both machines are high-efficiency by design and Energy Star certified, but the LG uses 105 kWh versus 158 for the larger GE.

The GE model offers 12 cycles and 9 options, including a wash-and-dry cycle for small loads and the UltraFresh venting system. LG WM3900 has 14 cycles with 12 different options.

GE GFW850 vs. Electrolux EFLS627 4.4 cu. ft. Front-Load Washer

The Electrolux EFLS627 scored a 3.7 rating, tying for third on our Best Front-Load Washers of 2021 and third on our list of Best Overall Washers for 202.

There are some notable differences between the two machines. The Electrolux retails for $150 more than the GFW850 unit and has less capacity at just 4.4 cubic feet versus 5.0. Both machines are Energy Star Certified, but the Electrolux uses 85 kilowatt hours annually. The larger GFW850 uses a comparatively high 158 kilowatt hours annual energy use.

The Electrolux competitor features 9 cycles versus 14 for the GE, including a 15-minute quick wash and a soaking function for heavy stains. The Electrolux is an inch narrower, nearly two inches shorter, and two inches shallower than the GFW850.

GE – 5.2 cu. ft. Top-Load Washer Review

Model numbers: GTW840CSNWS, GTW840CPNDG


  • Smart technology in a top-loading washer
  • Ties for largest capacity in our rating
  • Low water usage and energy efficient


  • Those who won’t use advanced features
  • Limited color selection

The high-efficiency, Energy Star-certified GE GTW840 top-loading washer offers innovation in a traditional laundry machine. Retailing for $949, the GTW840 earns a rating of 3.5 on the Best Top-Load Washers of 2021, tying for third on the list. This GE top loader tied for eighth on the Best Washing Machines of 2021. Exterior colors consist of classic white or dark gray (GE refers to this color as Diamond Gray), so those with a penchant for more vibrant finishes may be disappointed.

GE Washing Machine Laundry & Homes Washers Washers & Dryers 2023

The GE GTW840 houses a low-profile impeller in its stainless steel 5.2 cubic feet drum, the roomiest top loader on our list and tied with LGWM9000 as having the largest capacity overall. This size is great for large families and washing bulky items. The GTW840 features Wi-Fi, allowing full operation of your machine via Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or your smartphone. The GTW840 also features adjustable detergent and water dispensers, and ten different wash cycle settings.

There’s a handy in-tub water and detergent dispenser for pre-treating and soaking stains. The Auto Soak option provides a two-hour pre-soak and a pre-wash cycle provides additional assistance lifting stubborn marks. Another helpful cycle uses an Oxi additive, enhancing cleaning power and removing 99.9% of bacteria from fabrics, according to GE

GE Washing Machine Laundry & Homes Washers Washers & Dryers 2023

Adjusting the water level to match the load keeps water usage to a minimum in the GE GTW840. The detergent dispenser holds up to 48 loads worth of soap, releasing the right amount of low-sudsing liquid, and there are multiple rinse choices.

The GTW840 has a lot of features and gadgets, but with a starting price of $949, it’s not the cheapest top loader on our list, so consider which capabilities you’ll use.

As is typical of top loaders, the GTW840 is not stackable. At four feet tall, this is the tallest machine on our ratings list but also one of the shallower units at 27” deep, which is good to know when measuring for installation.

How Much Does the GE GTW840 Cost?

GE’s GTW840 top loading model starts at $949 for a white machine or $100 more for the “Diamond Gray” color. Both finishes have a transparent glass top. The control panel is a matte silver finish with chrome details on the cycle knob. Coordinating dryers are available for both colors.

GE GTW840 5.2 cu. ft. Top-Load Washer vs. the Competition

GE GTW840 vs. LG WT7300 5 cu. ft. Top-Load Washer

The WT7300 top-load washer from LG is a logical competitor to the GE GTW840. The LG version has a slightly lower capacity of 5.0 versus 5.2 cubic feet, but still sufficient for most households. There are two fewer cycles in the LG and no in-drum water dispenser. Both washers are Energy Star certified.

The LG WT7300 bests the GTW840 in our ratings of top-loaders with a 3.7 for first place on Best Top-Load Washers of 2021 and tied for third place on Best Overall Washers of 2021. The matching dryer, LG DLE7300, made the Best Dryers of 2021 list, whereas the GTW840’s matching dryer did not. The LG WT7300 retails for $900, less than the $949 GE GTW840.

This GE model earns a score of 3.2, finishing last on the list of Best Top-Load Washers of 2021 and last in the Best Washing Machines of 2021 rating.

GE Washing Machine Laundry & Homes Washers Washers & Dryers 2023

A stainless steel drum in the GTW720 holds 4.8 cubic feet of laundry, good for about 20 pounds. There are 12 different cycle choices, and options for rinse, load size, and wash/spin combinations.

The GE GTW720 offers several stain removal tools, including preset customizations to lift the five most common spots. According to GE the Oxi additive cycle removes 99.9% of bacteria, and Auto Soak loosens stains by steeping clothes for up to 2 hours. Use high efficiency detergent in the GTW720 for peak performance.

The GTW720 requires purchasing an additional part for Wi-Fi connectivity. This U+ Connect module retails for $50 at the GE Appliances parts store.

Like other GE products on our list, exterior colors are limited to classic white or dark gray. The GTW720 is among the taller units at 46” high, but at 27”, one of the shallower choices.

How Much Does the GE GTW720 Cost?

The GE GTW720 top load washer retails for $849 in white, with a “Diamond Gray” finish available for a $100 premium. Both colors feature a stainless steel look backsplash and large control dial with chrome accents. Adding Wi-Fi capability requires purchasing a $50 U+ Connect module from the GE Appliances parts store.

GE GTW720 4.8 cu. ft. Top-Load Washer vs. the Competition

GE GFW720 vs. LG WT7300 5 cu. ft. Top-Load Washer

The $900 LG WT7300 top-load is a worthy model to cross-shop against the $849 GE GFW720. Both appliances use stainless steel tubs, automatic dispensers, and an assortment of customizable cycles. Both are Energy Star certified, and available in white or gray.

The LG model has Wi-Fi standard and has a score of 3.7 for first place on the Best Top-Load Washers of 2021 list, and ties for third on the Best Overall Washers of 2021, both higher than the GE model. The companion dryer for the LG, DLE7300, made our Best Dryers of 2021 list, while the matching GE dryer did not. If space is an issue the GE GFW720 is over an inch shallower than the LG WT7300.
