If you’re in the market for a new washer, you’re probably more than familiar with the top load vs. front load debate. On one hand, front load washers use less water and energy, and they also have sleeker designs. However, top load washers have superior agitation — and not to mention, they’re often more affordable. Then there are washers like this top-rated GE Profile washing machine that finds a happy medium between performance and affordability.

Before taking a look into how this GE Profile takes the humble top load washing machine and re-engineers it for modern households, learn how GE Profile is empowering American households with more power and convenience than ever before.

It’s the Inside That Counts

To build a more efficient top load machine, it all begins with performance. The GE Profile PTW605BSRWS reimagines traditional top load performance across three verticals: Power, flexibility, and convenience.

Better Wash Power

The hero of this next-generation top load washer is Smarter Wash Technology. The system uses intelligent sensors to gather data on soil levels in the water and then adjusts a wash according to temperature and time needs. The system works with both heavy-duty garments and delicate loads to effectively agitate and loosen stains and dirt with superior results.

But more power shouldn’t come at the cost of warped fabrics and tangled loads. To reduce snags and twisting, this GE Profile washer also features tangle control technology. Responsive agitation keeps your wardrobe from intertwining, helping to further increase the lifespan of your favorite articles of clothing.

More Wash Flexibility

For starters, top load washers are more flexible than front load washing machines because they allow users to toss items in during the wash, and they have deeper tubs, which means bulkier items fit easier. The GE Profile PTW605BSRWS achieves this with a Deep Fill option that allows for the full tub to be used to wash a load. That means bedding, big loads of towels, and piles of jeans washed in a single load rather than several separate loads. It’s a handy feature that takes full advantage of this washer’s extra-large 4.9 cubic feet of tub capacity.

Users also get the most out of the exclusive FlexDispense feature that is compatible with any type of detergent. But rather than dispensing the soap, this dispenser mixes it with water for better wash results. Take a look.

Greater Appliance Convenience

Ultimately, the sign of a good washer is one that makes you do less. Recent innovations have made this smart top load washer capable of doing more than ever before with intelligent features designed for the future of the home.

It’s all powered by SmartHQ with Smart Features, GE Profile’s exclusive app that turns your smart device into a mobile control. Once downloaded, you can customize each load and even decide when to add laundry boosters. But this washer goes a step beyond with Washer Link technology. It’s like your washer and dryer are having a conversation about how to give your clothes the fabric care it deserves. Take a look at how it works.

More Winning Features

Even with all its smart features, this GE Profile washer still focuses on what washers are designed to do: clean. GE borrows from its front load washers and adds Microban to this top loader in the areas where bacteria and mold grow most. Microban helps keep your clothes and washer odor-free and clear of harmful viruses that often grow in washers.

Need extra peace of mind? Run the Sanitize Cycle and eliminate 99 percent of bacteria from your wash. Here’s how it works.
