For years now, I have warned grasshoppers about GE Appliances. I warn my local service call customers, too. But, people keep buying GE because they sell 'em cheap at Home Despot or because builders get 'em at rock-bottom prices. Even GE's supposedly higher-end appliances suck out loud. Oh, but don't just take it from me. Frustrated and angry GE appliance owners are organizing and fighting back in a David vs. Goliath class-action court battle. More power to 'em; they woulda been a helluva lot better off buying Whirlpool but, hey, I ain't one to say, "I told ya so."

If you're another one of the poor schlumps who bought GE appliances, you might wanna check out BringGoodThingsToLife.Org.

Oh so true.  The GE calls I get are usually the ones GE techs have already given up on, or ordered parts for and don't want to spend the time to fix.  Try giving their customer care number a call some time and partake in the pleasantness from the other end.  I know people will tend to buy based on price, but if it breaks, is the agitation worth it?

My two cents.

I couldn't help notice that an overwhelming amount of the posts on this site are for kenmore(whirlpool) and maytag.
There are very few posts for GE???

You mean for as in favor of or as in I need help with...?  If the former, I agree.  If the latter, you simply haven't looked enough.

I'm looking after the cat for the lad next door while he's away for the weekend. He has a GE washer & dryer, GE SxS fridge..and a Friggidaire D/W and stove. Such a nice fellow....churchgoer, really nice man....I don't have the heart to tell him.
Mad Mac....Pray to God he's out there....somewhere.
