There is nothing wrong with this washer folks!

Well first off I wanted the most inexpensive washer I could find at Sears, this one was it. I hated that it had all the negative feedback and that made me search the others. Then I went back to actually read about the negatives vs positives. The things everyone complained about, in my opinion, was due to user error or just not used to a more modern washer. They are programmed differently and more electronic than the older models. That's just technology for you, you cannot go backwards with these types of things. You cannot buy a new 15 year old washer today-get over it. You have to deal with industry standards like the features that this one has. This thing is quiet. Couple extra noises while it auto-calibrates in the beginning so what. I was worried about not having enough water level, it came up perfectly and I wasn't even on the largest setting. No leaks like someone else said. Washed clean, all detergent was washed off, no dry spots on clothing. Dried very well with the spin. I had no reason to lift the lid during any of the cycles but decided to anyways. Press the pause button and it stops for you-press again and it picks up where it left off--no problems there. If someone actually wanted to get rid of the lid lock its only 2 screws and you can remove it and place into the top receiver--problem solved--open whenever you like. It is there for your "safety" of course. I would buy this model again. Hope it holds up for many years as I am in no hurry to get rid of it.

It makes me cry

Each time I do laundry it gives me huge stress. I am disappointed because 1) when I load the washer and it fills the water while I am loading, in a couple of minutes it would drain all the water 2) if I forget to put something and try to open the lid to put it in, the cycle will start over. 3) when it started vibrating and I want to balance the clothes the cycle starts over from the beginning. In other words you cannot interrupt the cycle or it will start everything over. 4) when I put it on rinse cycle it started the washing cycle instead. 5) it has 4 water temperature settings, but in reality mine gives only two. For example hot water setting gives warm water by mixing hot water with cold and as the result I can only have cold or warm water. I need hot water to wash batting for my allergic kids. I would like to have the temperature that settings offer without saving energy for me by adding cold water. 6) I was promised by the repair department to have a technician to come out and look at it, but I spent two entire days waiting for the appointed vista, but no one came. We are tired of this machine and Sears' lousy "service" and we are returning it back.

Had to get used to...

...the locking lid is a pain...it's a noisy machine, sounds like a jet engine taking off when balancing...long wash cycles even on 'regular' cycle. But...the spin cycle is AWESOME!!! Takes less time to dry the clothes and towes. I like the 2nd rinse cycle for xtra dirty clothes. Large tub can handle bed spead/quilt easily.

Great value

The price is right. It works well. It fits into the space I designated for it. It's roomy enough for a big load. It is a great value.

DO NOT BUY THIS WASHER

I wish I never purchased this washer! It shreds our clothes (even when it is on the gentle cycle). Half of the cothes come out dry. This is not becasue the spin cycle is so wonderful it helps to dry the clothes, it's because the clothes were never washed. The washer is very small and if you try to do a "normal size" load, the washer makes horrible clunking noises. If that's not bad enough, all of your darks come out with white lint all over them. Worst washer I have ever owned! Needless to say it is being exchanged. What a waste!!!

Purchase only if Necessary

Be prepared to purchase an extended warranty for this model. After moving three times in about three years, my washer stopped working out of the blue. I researched Kenmore's forums for this particular model and the top two issues with it is the locking latch and or the motherboard. If a repairman comes out to service your washer and they determine it is a motherboard issue, go buy a new washer. The cost of a new motherboard is as costly as a new washer. I am not pleased with the quality of product because I expected more from the Kenmore brand. If it wasn't for the extended warranty I had purchased I wouldn't be able to replace my busted washer.

3 year washer...If you're lucky.

This washer lasted three years. Wife said it made an awful noise then wouldn't spin or pump the water out. Now it won't do anything. The electriconic control panel costs almost as much as a new washer. Will not buy another Kenmore/ Whirlpool.

So far I love it.

This is my 3rd Kenmore washer; 1st one lasted approx 20 years (7 years before kids showed up), 2nd one lasted 12 years (intense kid years). I went looking for the most basic machine I could buy, this fits what I wanted. I read the reviews before I bought the machine and now again after I have owned this washer 1 month. The piece of advice that I followed from the reviews was "Read the manual", I did. New washers work differently than the old ones. Differently, not badly. The things I really like about this washer is (1) it is very quiet, (2) it has a larger capacity than my old machine (3) I really like the cool temperature setting. I don't use liquid softener, so I can't comment about that complaint. I haven't had any issues with laundry soap dissolving and I have somewhat hard water at my home. These washers, wash clothes very gently. I was concerned that my husband's nasty work clothes wouldn't get clean, but only once have I had to re wash something and those were a pair of his heavy work jeans the were very heavily soiled. I like this machine.

Washing machine

I really like this washing machine. I read several reviews before buying it and was a little concerned about several things I read, but I was prepared for them so they are not that big an issue. The machine does take about an hour to complete a load, but the clothes are very clean and the machine is very quiet. Since the machine is in an inside bathroom I really like that! People warned that adding more clothes after the load has started would cause the water to drain & I would have to start the load all over again. I read in the directions I have "x" number of seconds to add something before the cycle is discontinued, so it has not been a problem. I just make sure I have everything I want to add and restart the start button. There is also plenty of time to fill the washer with clothes while the water is filling. The start push button is convenient. I am a little concerned about how it will hold up, but so far no issues (and I do a lot of wash!) All in all I am quite satisfied with the machine.

The worst washer ever

We bought this washer 2 years ago and already it is broken. The water overflows. It is a mess. My husband took the control panel apart to see which part needed replacing and it is all just cheap plastic parts. I hate this washer so much. It is too small, it becomes unbalanced all the time and makes the most awful noises. I am so sorry we bought a Kenmore washing machine. We had a whirlpool before that lasted over 15 years. It makes me sick that we wasted our hard earned money on this piece of junk.

Worst. Washer. Ever.

Please, please, PLEASE do not buy this washer. I am listing everything that is wrong with this thing.

1. The washer does not mix detergent well. I have tried numerous different kinds of detergent, to include pods, and I ALWAYS had laundry soap left on my clothes. I tried adding soap to the washer first, and then dumping a bucket of water to dilute before adding clothes, but the soap would still be there at the end of the wash cycle. This washer does not rinse well.

2. The locking lid is a real bummer. If you forget to add a piece of clothing, you have to hit the pause button and wait until the washer unlocks the lid before you can add it. This wouldn't be such a big deal if the washer would unlock! Sometimes you have to wait up to 5 minutes for the latch to release. Unreal.

3. No fabric softener dispenser. I thought I could get around this by buying a downy fabric softener dispensing ball, but the machine doesn't pop the ball at the right time...if at all. If you want to use fabric softener, you are going to have to sit next to the machine and wait for the right time to hit the pause button.

4. The rinse cycle is pathetic. Going hand in hand with number 1, this machine rinses horribly and leaves residue on your wash. Sometimes you can see it- white film on your darks. Other times you can feel it on the wash when you transfer it to the dryer. I have tried unsuccessfully to make the loads smaller in the hopes that maybe this washer would rinse better. Never happened. It doesn't seem to matter how much or little you put in this thing.

I recommend if you are interested in buying this washer, you spend the extra 100 bucks and get something better. If your budget is tight, go get a used washer on craigslist... Don't sink your money in this one!

Lasted 17 months

I have had this machine for 17 months and the lid lock light keeps blinking and the machine wont sensor. The service call will cost me half the price of the machine-not worth it. I had my old washer for 10 years and only bought a new one because we moved-VERY disappointed. Do NOT RECOMMEND.

Item # 02620022000P Model # 20022

This is the worst washing machine I have ever owned. Every time I wash sheets or large towels, it goes off balance and stops. Stopping the machines is terrible. I have only owned this machine since 2011. I'm done, and done with Kenmore, I going to ********** and buying a GE Washing Machine.

I will no longer be loyal to Kenmore

I liked this washer while it was working, but it did take some getting used to. The problem? It lasted a whole 16 months (of only two loads a week) and started grinding so loud I'm sure the neighbors heard it. In our area Sears has contracted with a&e service for repairs. What a joke. Their reviews are worse than these reviews. I'm too angry to say anything else. Extremely disappointed.
