It's excellent other than having the water controlled

I'm rating it a 5 b/c so many are putting a low number which is unfair once you read further, and the only reason why I'd give it one under is b/c 'I' want to be a control freak and not the washer, lol! it seems people keep bringing up that the washer barely covers items, and they don't get clean, yes, I had this experience before reading the instructions (I know, I didn't want to be patient, I thought it was like any other washer that you can just randomly choose a cycle and all works out a-okay!, no, um, no). If you have a bedding or bulky item, you 'must' choose bulky/bedding, it's the difference between a heavenly wash cycle (the only one that fills to the top and not 'just above' the clothes, to be noted...) where the sheets/comforter are so clean you're skipping, or having this thumpy cycle w/ a soapy dirty bedding item (twas nasty, I was so mad, b/c I put it on 'deep wash', and I did this 'twice'! ew!). So, if this is what you can afford, and it won't trouble you to read the guide under the lid and the book, to get used to it all and how to set things 'right', then you will do fine! Seriously! Great machine (just a tad controlling, but...ok). For what it's worth, I have chemical sensitivity and zero issues w/ this washer, I only had to work on the hoses and all around, no more problems after that. It is pretty quiet, quite happy.

awful- it is going back- it will be a hassle but it is going away

might be ok for clothes, awful for sheets and blankets. I put 2 blankets in the machine and the one did not even get wet. The description does not mention the sensor controlled water level.. No manual control of water level; I do enough laundry to be able to determine it for myself.

Don’t waste your money


Piece of garbage!!! Rarely worked right and now 1 year and 11 days later it just completely broke. I’m a single guy and my job has a uniform service. So it wasn’t used that much. Lid will lock and never release. Had to pry it up with a crowbar just to get my cloths out . I hate this stupid washer

Wouldn't buy again


Bought because it was in my price range-first Sears product I've not been happy with. Hard to get clothes completely clean unless using deep wash/heavy soil setting. Water doesn't drain completely out, so yucky old water smell in laundry room and on clothes. Would replace if I could afford to. Have used manual and every cleaning product recommended, not very happy with purchase!

Use it RIGHT


I have now had this washer going on 18 months. Install was horrible and Sears put me on hold twice for 11 minutes then again for 20 minutes before hanging up on me. I said **** it and fixed the problem myself. No more sears appliances for me but I digress. Back to the washer...
I'm thoroughly convinced that people are either using dirt cheap detergent or are too hardheaded to properly use this machine and are lashing out in the reviews blaming this washer for their ignorance.
I have been using this machine for my family of 6 and washing diapers in it. Yes, cloth diapers. My husband works in a car garage and he every day comes home greasy. His clothes come clean.
For the record I use either liquid tide (for diapers) or powdered gain (everything else). I have 4 kids ages 5, 3, 1, and 6 months. With two in cloth diapers my machine runs at LEAST every other day. My machine has literally cleaned ****, ***, food, car grease, vomit, mud, you name it, its cleaned it. Once a month I do a wash cycle on my machine (like everyone should be doing).
Cloth diapering has taught me a lot about using machines properly.
For instance, improper temperature can make the difference between clean and dirty clothes. Some clothes need hot water. BTW, check and make sure sears hardheaded installers didn't put hot to cold and cold to hot. (Rolleyes)
Not filling your machine optimally can make clothes less clean due to improper agitation. That's the nature of ANY HE machine. For this one, half full is good but 2/3 full is optimal load size for best agitation.
Also using too little OR too much detergent can cause laundry to stay "dirty". Yes it is counterintuitive to use less but most people use too much and the residual detergent may stay even though the machine detects no more suds and thus does no further rinsing. Your clothes will smell like **** if you use too much.
When used properly this machine is reliable. It gets the job done without unnecessary bells and whistles. I've even washed a comforter in it without problems.
I just can't help but wonder what most of these people are doing that their clothes are still dirty. I like my machine. Its not complicated and it works. When doing mini loads or very full loads clothes still come clean so I'm not sure why so many people are having problems.
Tip for any machine though, if you have VERY soiled items you can always do a rinse/spin without detergent then launder as usual to make your detergent most effective.
Used (and installed) properly, this machine is reliable and worth the money.
And of course if anything changes I will update my review but for now all is working excellent and I'm very happy with my purchase.
And no I'm not affiliated with anyone, sears, Kenmore, or otherwise. My opinion is so much more valuable than theirs, so they can suck it.

Very poor performance


This machine does not clean clothes adequately. It has a very low water level. The agitation is pitiful. Even when using a very small load, dirt is still visible on dirty clothes. Dirt, that I can lightly brush off, but the washing machine could not remove.

Water Sensor


I wish someone could tell me how to turn off the water level sensor. I have it set on deep wash and it still doesn't put enough water to cover the clothes.

The worst machine!!!


Every single load I put in came out dirty. I have a 10 month old and her bibs came out the same even on the second wash. I read reviews. But the few 5 star reviews made me think 1 star people were doing something different. I did not over load the machine. Even on large setting it doesn't load enough water because of the sensor. There is no way to stop the auto sensing. Urgh.  

I am convince anyone rating this machine a 5 star is a decoy for Kenmore or Sears.
