With your choice of auto and deep fill water levels, you control just how much water is needed for your next load of laundry.
A convenient dispensing system adds fabric softener to the wash basket at the opportune time – saving you the headache of having to add it in yourself.
All you have to do is turn a dial to select your preferred water temperature – cold, cool darks, cool lights, warm or hot – the choice is yours.
If you are not used to a high-efficiency machine, you should read the instructions first! With my old (2001) washer, I would start the washer first, then put in detergent, then clothes. The washer would operate with the lid up in the fill/wash cycle. This method will not work with the 22242 model. The LAST thing you do is start the machine, because its auto-sensing adjusts the water level to your load, and if you have no load in the machine when you start it, I think it throws the sensors off. Also, it will not operate with the lid up, even during fill, and I would like to be able to watch the water fill and the wash cycle agitation.The first time I used the machine, I pushed the start before loading the machine, which was a mistake but easy to correct the next time. The low water level (which is supposedly normal) took some getting used to, but my load came out clean and fresh. I do not think the machine is excessively noisy; it is quieter than my old washer, so I am satisfied.
We bought this washer because of its brand reputation but sad to say its was a really bad mistake. The spin cycle on this washer is awful, I actually thought that the machine was going to explode. We bought one and returned it for the exact same thing thinking it was a defective product but no, the same issue happened with the other new one. I would not recommend this washer at all. Great products at Sears but stay away from this one. We did buy another washer but totally different brand.
great value and an excellent product
easy to use-great delivery workers very respectful and helpful!!
Machine is garbage! The agitator twisted off after having this machine for about one month.
With this machine , the agitator goes back and forth, it does not draw the clothes down or cycle them through the bin. Items on the outer edge of the tub just move back and forth in the water. Anything near the agitator just moved up and down as the agitator moves back and forth. Auto sensing only puts in enough water to cover the clothes in the tub. Terrible design on this machine.
Works great, I like the auto fill option.
The washer seems fine. The delivery service is terrible. Sears is not the Sears I have always valued. Used to be a loyal customer, now, not so much!
