Purchased the G153 washer in 10/2012. This machine has been the worst washing machine since we purchased it, large loads and towels were soaking wet upon completion of the cycle, had to reduce load to four towels. Now machine sounds like it is "taking off", so loud and banging. What a piece of garbage; GE should be ashamed to have put its name on this machine and not be accountable for all of the complaints posted here. Most people don't have expendable money to purchase a new washer every year. Will never buy another GE product.
