So ge released their "new" top load washer today, it has a smartdispense detergent tank (no fabric softener) i am not fond of the drive system as it it belt driven and the same as whirlpools, it is noisy in my opinion, i have asked ge about their bigger capacity top load washers (direct drive 5.1 cubic feet) and cannot get a straight answer, i had one when they came out and loved it, mine had smartdispense detergent AND fabric softener. It makes no sense to me why ge would already discontinue their bigger top loaders after they have only been out for three years.

Not sure about the uk, i messaged ge and they said the had no plans to make the 5.1 cubic feet top load washer, i find that hard to believe, the machine only came out 3 years ago..... you mean they spent all of that money designing a washer and only have a 3 year production run?? All other companys are making bigger, lg has a 5.7 top load, samsung 5.4, whirpool and maytag/ kenmore all have a whopping 6.2 cubic feet, all ge has is 5.0 cubic feet and smaller, and they are all belt drive and sound noisy, even lg's base top loader has a direct drive inverter motor, anybody else agree?? Im hoping it's just misinformation by a rep that does not know anything.

Isn't the Warm Rinse Option just a short spray during the final spin?

I think something along the lines, yeah. But the option was more marketed with the comfort of taking the clothing out in mind, not with rinsing improvements.
