4 GE Washers That Have UltraFresh Technology

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Trust Spencers Appliance?

There are many reasons to invest in a front-load washer. They use less water than top-load models and have just as much storage to handle large loads. However, one of the main drawbacks of these appliances is that they can start to smell like mildew and potentially grow mold if you don’t keep them clean. This is where GE steps in. The company recently debuted its UltraFresh vent system with OdorBlock™ technology. This is a game changer in the world of washing machine options.

If you want to replace your old and outdated washer model, consider buying a GE UltraFresh washer. Learn more about this technology and how it can improve your laundry experience.

What is a GE UltraFresh washer?

If you want a washing machine that stays clean, look into a GE washer that comes with the UltraFresh vent system. This is a three-part system that works to thoroughly dry the washer drum while creating a hostile environment for bacteria and other microbes that cause odors and grime in your laundry area. With a GE UltraFresh washer, you won’t have to wipe down your appliance as frequently and can enjoy a clean-smelling laundry room throughout the week. Here’s how it works.

  1. Drain: the GE washer thoroughly drains the water after the wash cycle and prevents any lingering puddles. Mold and mildew thrive in damp environments, which is why these drains are so important.
  2. Dry: the cycle will spin the drum while an air vent opens to further eliminate moisture. By pushing fresh air through the washer, humidity levels drop and any lingering water evaporates.
  3. Defend: GE uses Microban® materials that are hostile to bacteria. This means there will be less mold present in your washer and you can keep the door closed when it isn’t in use. This material comes in a light blue color so you know where it is located on your appliance.

The UltraFresh system is a cycle on its own. However, because you are running it without any clothes in the drum, you don’t have to worry about keeping an eye on your washer. Once the cycle is complete, the washing machine will turn off.

4 GE Washers That Have UltraFresh Technology

Once you have a clear picture of how the GE UltraFresh washer works, you can explore some top products that have this feature. Here are four GE washers to consider for your home if you want to enjoy clean clothes without the potential for mildew smells and other odors lingering in your laundry area.

This GE front-load washer is a great place to start with your appliance search. It has a standard capacity level that can still hold more clothes than most buyers expect. It is a smart washer that you can control via your mobile device or home assistant. You no longer have to worry about forgetting your laundry because the washer will send alerts to your phone when the cycle is over.

GE also uses Dynamic Balancing Technology (dBT™) that prevents your washer from shaking and creating unwanted noise. The result is a balanced washing experience that produces clean clothes quietly.

One person writes, “I've been really enjoying using the app for the GE washer and it's nice to know exactly how long my cycle is going for and when it's completed.

GE® 5.0 Cu. Ft. White Front Load Washer

This model has a slightly larger capacity, which means you can spend less time cleaning clothes because you can fit more into each cycle. A large-capacity model is ideal if you hate doing laundry. You can pack the drum full of shirts, and pants without sacrificing the level of cleanliness. Before you know it, your clothes will be ready to dry and fold, wrapping up your laundry chores for the day.

This is an Energy Star-certified appliance, which means it already uses less water and electricity than most models. However, by requiring fewer loads with its larger storage capacity, you can use even less water in the long run. The quality draining and spinning systems used by GE can also cut down on your drying time, further reducing your electricity usage.

This is also a Wi-Fi-connected model that comes with Dryer Control™ technology. When you set the washer cycle, it will sync with the dryer and automatically select the appropriate settings. This way you don’t have to navigate through multiple cycle options to run your laundry.

GE Profile™ 5.3 Cu. Ft. Carbon Graphite Front Load Washer

If you have a large family – or an exceptionally messy family – consider investing in this extra-large capacity washer. It can handle everything from sports uniforms to king-size comforters, producing the same level of cleanliness every time.

This washer also comes with the SmartDispense™ detergent system. Simply add an entire jug of detergent to your washer and the appliance will dispense the right amount for each cycle. This system can last up to 32 cycles, so you no longer have to worry about adding the right amount. 

So far, customers love this GE Profile washer. One person writes, “We've had this machine for a few weeks now and we love it! We get to do our laundry much faster due to the size of the machine. We do more in less time so we can enjoy the rest of the day.” Other reviewers mention how beautiful the appliance is, which means they don’t need to hide their laundry room from guests anymore.

Not everyone has the need or the space for an extra-large capacity washer. Instead, you might need a small model for your RV, apartment, or guesthouse. This particular GE washer can fit almost anywhere and still comes with several top features that you can enjoy.

Use the 14 different wash cycles to choose the right power levels and spin speeds for specific garments. There’s even a Quick Wash cycle for when you are in a hurry and only need to wash a few items.

You will also be amazed at how the drum spins at 1400 RPM, removing most of the moisture from your clothes. This is another Energy Start-qualified appliance that will use minimal water and electricity while still providing a powerful cleaning experience. 

You can see what people think about this small washer by reading online reviews. One person writes, “Quietest machine ever. Perfect fit! I love that the machine displays how long each setting wash will take and it counts down.”


How does the GE UltraFresh vent system work?

The GE UltraFresh washer works in three different ways: it thoroughly removes water after the wash cycle, it opens an air vent to dry the drum, and it incorporates Microban® materials that prevent bacteria from growing. As a result, you can enjoy the benefits of a front-load washer without the odor or potential grime.  

What is the UltraFresh vent system?

The UltraFresh vent system by GE is a feature that comes with some front-load washers. It ensures the inside of your washer is dry, which prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria. You won’t have to spend as much time wiping down your washer with this system in place.

How often should I run the UltraFresh vent?

GE recommends running the UltraFresh system after the conclusion of your wash cycles for the day. If you complete three loads of laundry, run the UltraFresh cycle after the last load. There is no need to use the vent after every single load or on days that you don’t do laundry.
