General Electric / ge washer gbvh5140hww failed after 2 years

Canada Review updated:

Bought a GE Front Load washer two years ago. The warranty has expired and the main circuit board on the unit has failed. The service technician says it will cost $493.00 to replace it. I opted to pay him $84.00 for the service call and decided to replace the entire unit with something other than GE. I highly suggest avoiding GE and GE Profile appliances, they are not reliable.

    GE was nice enough to contact me and agree that it was unusual for the inverter to fail (which is what the service technician said). Megan said she would mail me a check for the cost of the part which I used to repair the machine and now its working. Thanks GE.
