I don't understand some of the negative reviews regarding this washer. I mean really people. Ok so when this spin cycle which is 800+ RPMs you might experience more wrinkles if you are not drying them in a dryer. But once I put my clothes in the dryer they come out the same as with my other washer plus since the spin cycle is so fast your clothes come out not as wet and dry faster in our dryer. Please just READ the instructions. Yes this washer is different because you need to add just a small amount of HE detergent first before loading. (I believe your choice of HE detergent and how much you use is key) And yes its recommended that you should load the washer (which has a huge stainless basket) around the edges trying to leave the center open so you can view the bottom after loading. Once you know these things its easy and the washer does a very fine job. It may not be for those people who dis-like change even if its for the better and just like to load it, close it, turn it on and forget it. But don't blame the washer because it performs as it should if directions are followed. So here are my Pros and Cons for the washer: Cons -No dispenser for laundry softener. It says get a Bounty Ball but I just put it in with the laundry detergent before loading. -Takes about 45 mins to wash a load Pros -Sounds different than other washers but overall is quiet - Washes clothes just fine -Dries faster since it spins so fast -Affordable
Bought this washer last summer. My clothes come out with spots on them. They have gotten duller and my whites are no longer bright. Have stopped using the powder soap that was recommended to me. Went back to my Tide HE. The clothes have hardly Any water on them when they are washing. How can they possibly get clean. This is the worst wash I have had in 50 years. Not happy.
It is loud and makes weird noises but it cleans clothes and saves water. It seems to take longer than my old washer did so I'm not sure how efficient it really is. I hate that the lid child locks. My kids are grown I shouldn't have to put up with such a feature. Lastly I miss being able to soak my clothes overnight. This washer does not allow that and won't fill with enough water to even entertain such an idea. ETA: DO NOT BUY THIS! Less than 2 yrs after buying the sensor died and the repairs are over $200. I hate what technology has done to appliances. They break within years and repairs are so much it's not worth it to fix!
This dryer works great and was offered at an affordable price. I have owned Kenmore products for my entire life and am never disappointed in the quality and life time of their performance.
Took some time to learn how much garments you have to add for the different cycle load size. After that, It works. The energy efficient pretty much on all brands reduces the cleanliness but the kenmore washer itself brings the clothes out clean.
Our washer stopped working properly and we were told the electronic board that controls the washer was malfunctioning. This happened 8 months after purchase and normal use from a family of four. It took two weeks for a repair technician to be able to come out and fix the washer which was very inconvenient, but it was still under warranty. Exactly one year to the day the technician had come, the same thing happened again. This time the warranty was expired and it was going to cost $280 to repair. I do not recommend this washer. It works fine when it is working, but no brand new washer should break twice in less than two years...
Not happy with this water, no fabric dispenser like it said in description online, leaves white residue on clothes after 4 months of use. Just doesn't use enough water I think to wash clothes.
This washer does not wash out the soap. Its terrible.
