    Side by side GE Profile washer and dryer

    The stylish design of the GE Profile series can make it the center of attention in your home

    look no further than the amazing GE Profile series.  The latest GE Profile washers and dryers include a huge range of cutting-edge new features like SmartDispense, Overnight Ready, Adaptive Vibration Control, HydroHeater, SteamRefresh, eDry, eWash and Stain Inspector.  Today, we'll cover these key features and how they can make your life easier.

    All washers make claims about great cleaning performance, gentle and fast cycles, efficiency and high tech options, but GE has taken their Profile series to the next level with these great options:

    SmartDispense: Unique pedestal that features 3 large capacity detergent and fabric softener reservoirs.  This pedestal can hold up to 6 months of detergent and will automatically integrate with the washer to ensure that the right amount is dispensed with each and every load.  It even dispenses at the precise time.  This great feature ends the mess and hassle of having to measure out detergent manually before each load.

    Overnight Ready: Now you can start the washer before you go to bed and in as little as 8 hours your load will be washed and dried without having to move the clothes to the dryer.

    HydroHeater: Special internal water heater that boosts water temperature to 160 degrees F to assist in sanitization.

    SteamRefresh: Rejuvenates clothes and fabrics using a special steam cycle to remove odors and wrinkles.

    CleanSpeak: The washer and dryer can communicate electronically to preset cycle times to help you save time.

    eDry: GE's unique dryer sensor that can reduce drying temperatures and allow for an additional 10% energy usage reduction.

    eWash: A very effective cold water wash option that is the eco-friendly way to cut energy usage in the washer by an additional 10%.

    GE SmartDispense pedestal

    The unique GE SmartDispense pedestal can hold up to 6 months of laundry detergent

    Stain Inspector: On-screen program built into the washer and designed to integrate with the SmartDispense system to clean even the toughest stains.  It uses specific combinations of pre-wash detergent, cycle tweaks and temperature adjustments to make sure that your clothes always come out clean and fresh.

    Adaptive Vibration Control (AVC): This active vibration reduction system is the latest in a long line of technology features on washing machines designed to reduce the amount of noise and vibration caused during spin cycles.  This system allows the washer to adapt to changing load balances and spin patters to reduce noise caused by out-of-balance loads.  It is still recommended that owner's install an anti-vibration pad under the washer to absorb the remaining vibration noise.

    Now that you've heard what makes the GE Profile series so impressive, remember that if you plan on installing this or any other washing machine on a second floor or plywood sub floor laundry room you will need to install a washing machine mat or pad.  Anti-vibration mats and pads assist the washer and dryer's built in vibration reduction technology and protect against the structural damage that long term appliance usage can cause.  This is no place to penny pinch if you've just invested in a great new washing machine and dryer, spend the extra few dollars now on a set of Silent Feet anti-vibration pads and save yourself costly home repair bills later.
