As of 2015, some features on GE washers include energy efficiency as certified by the Energy Star label and water efficiency, which is supported by the cold water cycle and the automatic water-fill feature. Other features include stain removal options using the steam assist option and an automatic detergent dispenser.
Different GE washer models have different features, and some features may be available in some models and not in others. GE washers are fitted with vibration dampeners and adaptive vibration control bearings for noise insulation. This is also supported by the load-balancing feature, which decreases vibration for lighter loads, subsequently reducing noise.
The single item cycle allows users to wash one item, such as a blanket or comforter fast, and in an energy and water-efficient manner. GE washers have a preset stain removal option that works together with the steam assist feature for better stain removal. These options are designed to infuse clothing with steam that loosens all types of stains while protecting clothing from damage.
The SmartDispense feature detects the load size and automatically releases adequate detergent into the drum. GE washers are fitted with large capacity detergent reservoirs that can store up to two months' detergent, eliminating the need for constant refills. The Energy Star label on some GE washer models certifies the energy and water-saving capabilities of these washers.
