danwat1234: My mother has a GE Steam GFWS2605FRR or similar so it has allergen, sanitize (both use the internal water heater), power clean, sports, bulky, normal, sheets, 1 item, delicates, basket clean, etc.
I have noticed on normal it is very light on the water (very little water under the clothes), great for smaller loads but maybe not enough for heavily soiled larger loads. Bulky puts in a bit more water but only a couple of cups of water on the bottom of the basket. Power Clean puts more water in still and agitates for longer. Probably basket clean puts in the most water of all. Would be interesting putting in super dirty clothes on the basket clean cycle and then run a normal or bulky or power clean cycle after to do the proper rinsing.
Wonder if basket clean, the agitation (kneading) speed is quicker. On all other cycles it's always the same, like 60RPM or something (tho haven't tried delicate). Does your washer have internal LEDs?
Michael Schoepp: I sounds like you left the cat in the washer meyow
Jerome Davis: Can you do a full load of colors on the colors/normal cycle please? Thanks. Also, I could've sworn your washer has a recirculation pump.
Lizy bordum: Mine is older the stupid thing was under the panel ! I had a rat and all kinds of money it look like a rat but ball of hair bow it works yeah no paying anyone i fixed my own fridge too there was actually a mouse in there ..lol saved mega bucks

Mateo K: what deterget you putted to clean it ? can we put a dish detergent ?
TomZentra: You are supposed to check the washer for pets inside prior to running this cycle.
Carly Mmmhmm: LOL Is the cat in the wash??
phsal96: kenny the cross-eyed cat! =D
EllysaE: aww kitty cat
My issues along with many others regarding this series have NOTHING to do with the shipping bolts. The out of balance sensors are very poorly designed. The unit should be able to detect when it is on the verge of self-destruction but cannot. Other times when the load is almost pefectly balanced, the unit will determine that it is not and stop the cycle only to try to balance all over again.
James Kalin: The next time I do a cleaning cycle I will try ammonia. I have my water heater set little high around 150-155 degrees because I have two dishwashers. I have used ammonia and Pine-Sol (not at the same time) in my laundry. I have also used Pine-Sol to clean the tub, left if smelling really nice for a couple weeks.
That sounds like Electolux knows what they are doing. I'd recommend GE stay out of the washer business because all they seem to design lately is crap.
Amen - take this POS back before it's too late.
salmagunda: GE washers are junk.. Why don't you have a clip of it going out of balance and walking acrossed the floor.
James Kalin: My Frigidaire front loader doesn't have a cleaning cycle. So I use the bulky cycle which has a higher water level. Instead of bleach, I use a half a cup of dishwasher detergent.
When I'm through washing for the day, I wipe the door, boot, and detergent drawer and leave the door and drawer open, and have never had a problem with odor, mold or mildew.
