The GE GTW720BSNWS is a great option that features in our round up of the best top-load washing machines. Delivering great performance while paying attention to the smaller details too. The 4.8 cubic foot drum can handle a decent load of washing, and the no pole agitator shifts laundry around without being too tough on the fabric.

GE GTW720BSNWS: Price 

The GE GTW720BSNWS can usually be found for just under $850 on Home Depot, which does put it towards the expensive end of the top loading washing machine market. It doesn’t have the smart features of the LG WT7300CW, which sits in a similar price range, but the powerful washing features means the GE GTW720BSNWS holds its own in this price bracket. 

GE GTW720BSNWS: Design and features 

The GE GTW720BSNWS is designed to be simple to use, but with plenty of options to customize your wash cycles. Multiple rinse options allow you to ensure that fabric softener and other additives get washed away, while the Deep Fill option allows you to choose to add more water to your wash. If you’d prefer not to have to think too much about wash cycle options, this washer has you covered too. Even those that are somewhat stain-prone don’t need to understand complex settings, a stain guide allows you to choose from a set of common stains and the machine will choose the best wash settings for you.

GE GTW720BSNWS: Key specs

Washer Capacity: 4.8 cubic feet

It’s also pretty stylish for a washing machine. Along with thoughtful touches, like soft close hinges and the machine turning on when you lift the lid, the design makes this model a great addition to the home.

GE GTW720BSNWS: User reviews 

Users tend to rate this washer at about 4.2 out of 5. They particularly like how quiet the machine is, as well as the wide range of washing features. They found it effective on bulky items like towels, while also being effective at removal of difficult stains.

The timer countdown is also another feature reviewers tend to like, while the sturdy build and durability is a big plus point in most reviews. Some did find that there was excess vibration, but this didn’t seem to be a consistent problem.

Should you buy the GE GTW720BSNWS? 

Overall, this is one of the best top-loading washing machines on the market, thanks to its effective washing power and range of customizable washing options. For those that like to set it and forget it, there’s an intuitive control panel and plenty of pre-set cycles to select from, but if you want to fine-tune your wash, that’s easily done too.

It’s a sleek model that’s quiet and well-designed for ease of use. It’s also a popular model with users who found it particularly effective on bulky items. It’s not the cheapest machine on the market, but it is one of the best so it’s unsurprising that it’s a bit more costly than the simpler models.
