Washing machine cycle times?

I recently bought & had installed a Kenmore 3.5 cu ft. top-loading washing machine. The cycle times on the machine are rediculously high. For example, an extra-large load, 1 rinse, light cycle took 45 minutes; an extra-large load, extra rinse, light cycle took 90 minutes!!! I will be exchanging this machine for one with shorter cycles. The 21-yr-old Maytag I just got rid of washed an extra-large, "normal" load in 25 minutes; an extra rinse added 15 minutes or less. I would like to come close to those times. My trusted appliance service reps recommend a top-loading, non-computerized, traditional model manufactured by Whirlpool. What model(s) is/are out there fitting the description?

Kenmore , Maytag , Whirlpool

I have a standard no frills washer and it does get the job done. The extra features are nice and can offer more options, but I can see how the problem you are having would make you look for simple controls. An option for shopping while you wait for the expert is to check the Sears.com link below. It also offers help from the Blue Appliance Crew. I attached the link below. Hope your laundry days get shorter.
