The GE frontload laundry pair are large enough to handle 22 full-size bath towels, the king-sized 3.7 cubic foot stainless washer basket and the spacious 7.0 cubic foot dryer drum make room for family-size loads. The units also offer a 15-inch door opening.

The washer uses 10 gallons of water for a small load and 15 gallons for an average-size load, which reportedly saves up to 23 gallons per load, or 61 percent water. According to the company, the washer exceeds 2004 Energy Star(R) guidelines by 28 percent and already meets 2007 energy standards. A bright DuraDrum(TM) interior make it easier to see inside the washer and dryer.

Installation options include stacking the machines for an integrated look, or consumers may choose custom under-the-counter, built-in or side-by-side installations. The dryer door is reversible for additional flexibility. Optional 12 inch high storage drawer pedestals with dividers are available to provide convenience and extra storage space for detergent, dryer sheets and other cleaning supplies.

According to the company, the HydroMotion(TM) reversing tumble wash action of the washer and extra low heat selection (125°F) on the dryer helps protect valuable delicates. Dual electronic moisture sensors and two thermistors help prevent under- or over-drying. The Flow-Thru(TM) dispenser system releases the detergent, fabric softener, additives, and bleach at just the right time so consumers don't have to.
