Handles Family-Size Loads with Ease
From a week’s worth of clothes to a hamper full of towels, this washer’s 3.3 cu. ft. capacity can handle almost any sized load with ease.
Smart Cleaning Action
Kenmore’s dual action agitator ensures even washing on every cycle, from delicates to towels; no more breaking laundry into tiny or single item loads.
Optimal Water Usage for Large Loads
The Deep Water Wash Cycle optimizes the water levels and usage for larger family-sized loads so each item comes out clean, clean, clean.
Optimal Treatment for Each Load
9 wash cycles ensure each load of laundry gets the right treatment, whether you just need to rinse and spin, run a light load, or plow through a pile of towels.
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.
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.
Good, once you get use to lower water level.
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.
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.
I bought this washer with the dryer and it has literally made my life miserable. I have been using it for many months now hoping that somehow it will wash and actually clean my clothes, but it has NOT! I am so upset with myself because I bought it! The machine is supposed to fill up all the way if you want to deep wash your clothes, and it does but the clothes dont get cleaned. I have also tried soaking my clothes but the water get drained, helloooooo that defeats the whole purpose of soaking them. I have an infant, two other kids pets and all of our clothes look just terrible now. Simple stains don't come off, I have to hand wash and finish in the washer, which pretty much defeats the whole purpose of having a washer. I want my money back, this has been the worst purchase of my life. I want clean back in my fabrics!!!
Not to mention, I now have to buy higher priced detergent because it has to be He, new clothes as well because this machine has not washed any properly. Horrific!
I rated this a 5. It's a great value for the price. For the people that complain about the water level, it's really not a problem. I have the lowest price kenmore washer 100. It doesn't have the option for "bulky items." It washes a queen size comforter. It comes out clean. I think some people overfill the washer. It's only 3.3 cubic feet so it may be smaller than what they are used to. If I had it to do over, I would get one size up.
Also, it's like any other HE washer. It needs run through a cleaning cycle once a month. We have used regular bleach for this (we've had the washer a year) and it's working great.
Ive run the same comforter through it over and over and find that I have to clean it by hand. We have dogs and they get paw marks on couch covers and they generally remain after being washed. We wash one item at a time more and more but still find visibly dirty items coming out. Ive read the manual, and feel like Im versed on how to use the washer it just doesnt clen stuff very well.
I bought this machine 18 months to the date of purchase, pump went out, and the machine would only fill up to a certain level no matter where the selector was on, did not wash cloths good at all, some of my cloths had to be rewashed, few pairs of pants, few shirts and socks and if you put to much in the machine it would not agitate well , the lights on the dash board all went out, machine is poorly made, poorly and shipped poorly, piece of junk !
i bought this kenmore top load washer to go with my kenmore dryer and it works great. i like the top load feature better than the front because it doesnt involve much bending over. the washer is great. cleans the clothes well and doesnt take long. very quiet as well
