Award-Winning GE Profile Harmony™ Clothes Care System Just Got Smarter
We’re talking BIG... BIG capacity. BIG dependability. BIG savings.
LOUISVILLE, Ky.-The highly acclaimed GE Profile Harmony Clothes Care System now offers more features to make laundry easier and more efficient. While the Harmony system continues to have the largest capacity washer and the fastest premium dryer on the market, consumers will enjoy several added benefits.
Consumers can now view clothes during the cleaning process, without opening the lid or stopping the wash cycle, with the new see-through HydroView™ tempered glass lid. The washer lid matches the reversible king-sized glass dryer door.
The first clothes care system with washer to dryer communication just got smarter. Harmony now features a CleanSpeak™ system, meaning it contains both English and Spanish options on the LCD washer and dryer touch screens. Additional touch screen upgrades include a new “Washer Recommended Cycle” for quick recall of settings for the just-washed load.
Whites stay white and bright thanks to a new HydroHeater™ internal water heater. The heater increases water temperature to improve wash performance of particularly tough stains on loads like white cottons.
Stain Inspector™, the most comprehensive stain-removal system on the market also got smarter. The new Harmony washer now offers more than 80 common stain problem selections, optimizing wash cycles based on stain type, fabric and garment color, taking the guesswork out of treating stains.
King-Size Capacity and One-Touch Programming Make Laundry Faster, Life Easier
The largest-capacity washer available, Harmony is big enough to handle 24 towels. Its king-size, 4.0 cubic foot* stainless steel washer basket makes room for more items, which means fewer loads per week, saving consumers up to 110 loads per year.** The adaptive high spin speed (up to 1010 revolutions per minute) means better water extraction and less dry time. But high speed does not mean sacrificing gentle clothes care.
Harmony’s washer delivers front load wash performance with top load convenience. Instead of an agitator, an innovative HydroWash™ system gently and thoroughly cleans clothes so they look newer longer. Using centrifugal force, the centrifusion wash action gently pulls detergent solution throughout the clothing, and a rotating basket and infusor provide gentle cleaning action resulting in less wear and tear on fabrics.
The Flow-Thru™ dispenser system releases the detergent, fabric softener, additives and bleach at just the right time so consumers don’t have to. The timed dispensers are not only convenient, but provide optimum cleaning as well.
This ENERGY STAR ® washer is in harmony with the environment too. Water levels are matched to load size, resulting in water and energy savings. Harmony uses up to 42 percent less water than a traditional topload machine which results in a 90% improvement of the energy factor.*** Plus, it meets 2007 energy standards.
The HydroWash system uses as little as 17 gallons of water for a small load and an average of 24 gallons for an average-sized load. **** The Harmony washer also meets the criteria to earn the Consortium for Energy Efficiency 3A Tier rating, one of the highest efficiency ratings possible.
GE Profile and GE ®washers are “America’s Most Dependable Washers!” GE Profile and GE washers have the lowest repair frequency among leading brands purchased since 2001, according to an independent national survey of consumers who purchased a leading brand washer from 2001-2004.
The LCD touch screens make it easy for anyone in the family to do the laundry. The washer communicates electronically with the dryer, which then presets dry cycles for better clothes care, increased time savings and greater convenience. Users simply select a wash cycle based on how their laundry is sorted and press “Start.” At the end of the wash cycle, the washer communicates information about the wash load electronically to the dryer, helping eliminate the guesswork in the laundry room. The fastest premium dryer you can buy, Harmony’s dryer features the DuoDry™ system which quickly and consistently dries all types of clothes. The system uses two motors -- an industry first -- to maintain proper airflow and control tumbling action to ensure fast, even drying. Two electronic moisture sensors and two thermistors help prevent under or over drying. An adaptive cool down phase at the end of the dry cycle tumbles clothes with cool air to reduce wrinkling. The dryer delivers outstanding performance whether the venting system is very short or up to 150 feet long of equivalent ducting.
The spacious 7.3 cubic foot stainless steel dryer drum handles king-sized items and family-sized loads. The huge dryer door opening is the largest in the industry, making loading and unloading a breeze.
Appearance is more important than ever when it comes to choosing a washer and dryer. This attractive high-end laundry pair includes curved, interchangeable control panels. The Harmony system is available in dark platinum or white.
Available Fall 2005, the estimated retail price range of the GE Profile Harmony laundry pair (washer model WPGT9360E and dryer model DPGT750EC or DPGT750GC) is $1948 - $2098. * Washes equivalent amount of clothes as 4.0 cu. ft. agitator machines, per International Electrotechnical Commission ratios.
