The GE GFQ14ESSNWW is a 2.4-cu ft ventless combination washer and dryer, which features many high-end features, such as a steam cycle and add a garment settings, but for a really affordable price. It doesn’t have Energy Star verification, and its warranty is only average, but the GE GFQ14ESSNWW delivers a lot of custom wash and dry cycle options which makes it worthy of its spot in our roundup of the best washer dryer combos (opens in new tab).
GE GFQ14ESSNWW review: Features
- 2.4fu. Ft
- Steam wash cycle
- No need for a vent
The GE GFQ14ESSNWW packs in a lot of features for the money. It comes with detergent, bleach and fabric softener dispensers which detect the ideal time to release into the washing cycle you select. The GE GFQ14ESSNWW also comes with smart features, including one which automatically selects a dry cycle which pairs with the wash cycle you’ve selected, so you don’t need to worry about delicates being put on an aggressive dry cycle, or sheets not being dry when you check the machine. Of course, you can still select your dry cycle manually, but the freedom to trust that your wash and dry cycles will automatically sync up is just one of the reasons that users love the GE GFQ14ESSNWW washer dryer combo.
The GE GFQ14ESSNWW washer dryer combo gives you a lot of freedom to customize your wash, with five temperature levels, five soil settings and five spin speeds. It also has a sanitize setting, which is designed to kill germs and household bacteria, and a steam wash setting which will loosen stains. One of our favorite features on the GE GFQ14ESSNWW is its add-a-garment setting, which allows you to pause a cycle and add in any odd socks or dishcloths you forgot. This is seriously impressive for a washer dryer combo which costs less than the average washer or dryer combined, as it features the leading technology in these industries, with the versatility to let you choose the ideal setting for your needs. In total there’s 14 wash settings, and five dry cycles to choose from. If you're willing to sacrifice some of these features for a less expensive model, the Magic Chef MCSCWD27W5 (opens in new tab) is our top pick.
GE GFQ14ESSNWW review: Size & dimensions
- 2.4 cubic foot
- Fits into small spaces
- Compact design
The GE GFQ14ESSNWW washer dryer combo has a standard 120v plug which makes it easy and convenient to install, and it doesn’t require a vent, which means you can store it under counters or in cupboards. At 2.4 cubic feet in capacity, the GE GFQ14ESSNWW washer dryer combo isn’t the largest washer dryer combo we’ve reviewed. However, it’s about the standard size and will fit well under counters or in laundry rooms. If you’re in the market for a washer dryer combo, it may well be due to a lack of space. This combo has a compact design, combining the functions of washers and of dryers, but with a significantly smaller size than either of these models. Yes, this means your loads will, on average, be smaller. However, the largest size you’ll find for a top washer dryer combo is shy of 3 cubic feet, so it’s a sacrifice you’ll make with most washer dryer combos.
In terms of dimensions, the GE GFQ14ESSNWW is 23.5-inches wide, 33.25-inches in height, and 25.6-inches deep. That’s a compact overall size for a washer dryer combo with this capacity, meaning it will fit into just about any space you had in mind. However, we always recommend you check the dimensions of your space thoroughly before purchasing.
GE GFQ14ESSNWW review: Warranty
In terms of warranty, you’ll get a limited 1-year entire appliance warranty with the GE GFQ14ESSNWW washer dryer combo. This is about average for a washer dryer combo, but the LG Signature LUWM101HWA (opens in new tab) has a more impressive coverage.
Should you buy the GE GFQ14ESSNWW?
If you’re after a compact washer dryer combo which is great value and low in price, this is our top pick. The GE GFQ14ESSNWW features industry-leading cycle options, such as steam, sanitize and even add-a-garment wash settings. We think it would be even better if it had Energy Star certification, but you can expect to pay a lot more for a washer dryer combo which offers this.
