Truly Impressed

We received this product earlier in the week after a great deal on Friends and Family night. We decided to give it a tought initial wash test - a king size quilt. I can honestly say that the quilt looked restored to original after the wash. We have since tried most every cycle and am truly impressed with the engineering, quietness and effectiveness of this machine. Two kids and pets at home need a good machine. This one knocked it out of the park. Kudos

requires concret floore

Sales people fails to advise that this machine is design to operate on concrete flooring only. It does not work properly on wood floors. The vibration from this machine when placed on a wood floor is unbelievable and the appliance walk across the room. After purchasing this appliance, we are having to build the sub floor with 3/4 " thick plywood or concrete blocker board as well as use a vibration pad in the wash room. This problem is noted in the operation manual that you can refer to only after you purchase the appliance and get it home. This information should be advertised with the appliance.

No reversible door!

Overall I love this washing machine, but because the door isn't reversible, I'm faced with having to deal with the washing machine door being opened and in my way while transferring clothing from my washer to the dryer. It's brand new and I hate the thought of having that inconvenience for years to come.

Wish I had my LG back

With all the options available you would think one would allow you take the clothes from the washer to the line dry and not have clothing so wrinkled that it takes forever to iron. and these are items that are classified as wash n wear or no iron. Very disappointing,have never experienced this problem with any other machine

Great Washer

We upgraded to this unit from a 10 year old top load washer. This washer does an excellent job cleaning and is far better at removing stains then my top loader. We wash everything from heavy rugs to baby cloths. We have three kids under 2 years and this thing has run every day of the last 16 months with no issues. If the load is not balanced it will vibrate and shake more then a top load. I have it on the second floor of a new house in a tiled utility room with no issues. It will spit out foam through the overflow if you put in way to much soap. When not running we leave door slightly open with an old wash rag and have had no mold or mildew issues. Great washer and dryer combo. Excellent value.

I bought this washer in November 2013 and had a service repair come out within the 30 days. The water intake is LOUD and the vibration is RIDICULOUS?.my whole house vibrates! So the repairman checks it out and runs a few cycles. He says the basket ?may? be warped and although he heard the loud water intake and vibration, he says everything was running ?fine?. Hmmm? I took it back to Sears and got a brand new one. Unfortunately, I still have the same problem. I spoke to several sales associates at Sears and no one seems to know what the problem could be. I just read another comment on this machine and saw that the Sears sales people fail to advise that this machine is designed to operate on concrete flooring only and does not work properly on wood floors. This problem is noted in the operation manual that you can refer to only after you purchase the appliance and get it home. This information SHOULD be advertised with the appliance.

Love this machine!

We were given the coordinating dryer, so had to get the washer to go along with it. I love it. The size is perfect for my family of three and it even handles comforters.

Water intake LOUD

The water intake is so incredibly LOUD. The intermittent intake bangs on and off literally waking up sleeping children. Once that is complete the wash and spin cycle are relatively quiet but water intake is ridiculous. Who in engineering thought this was okay? Maybe you should have people who actually wash clothes in a family household on your design team. Now that it's installed in my home, I'm doomed for another 10 years. At least water is running into the machine. The installers stacked the machines, left and forgot to turn on the water. Sad.

Nothing else like it.....

This washer had far exceeded our expectations. It is quiet and has many options on it. It really saves a lot of water and energy. Our laundry tub used to fill to the top several times with our top loader. Now is fills up a couple of inches. The steam cycle will get your whites looking like new. I highly recommend this washer. You will love it.

Washes Very Well

This washer uses so little water. I can't wait to see the water bill. I want to see how much it has change. The washer is quite for the most part. At certain high speeds there is noise from the vibration. This Washer should definitely be on concrete. Other than that this is a Great washer. If you get the washer delivered don't have them installed it. I had to redo the installation. Don't get the hoses. The price they charge you should be recieving the metal jacket hoses.

The spin cycle will drive you nuts

I just got these delivered and the spin cycle is driving me crazy. Luckily someone posted about it requiring concrete flooring, which I do not have on the second floor. Called Sears and was told to purchase rubber feet. If that doesn't work, it will go back! Never had the crazy spin balance cycle issue with my old blue Samsung front loader, only reason we upgraded was because the dryer drum was coming loose at the seam making a thumping sound...the irony!!! We decided on Kenmore as a result of no one in Colorado Springs working on the brand Samsung. Not sure if I should've listen to the advise of repairmen. Also, the dispenser seems to always have water in it and is oddly configured.

Lovely & Practical

We had to replace our washer and ordered this one on sale, I have run around a dozen loads through it, and I am loving it! The steam clean setting cleared up the slightly musty smell I've been battling with my towels (even bottles of vinegar added to my old washer still was just barely doing the trick) I love having the sanitize/steam setting for those rags used in the bathroom (ew!) or potty accidents (plentiful with 3 boys under 5). I have no idea what the other reviewer was talking about when they said the vibrating made them reinforce their floors (btw, all sub floor is 3/4" plywood. me= builder's wife) This machine is so quiet I can hardly hear it running-I have had to walk up to it and listen to make sure it's running. :) I ran a few full loads, but my dryer does not have that kind of capacity, so I'm stuck running smaller loads until my dryer gives up the ghost, cause I'm cheap like that ;) or until summertime when I may break out the clothesline :)
