I purchased this washer in spite of bad reviews. I'm glad I did as this is an excellent machine. I've found it to be more quiet than my previous high end washier. You have to learn the settings to avoid the problems others describe. Express cycle is perfect for most everything.. 30 minutes top to bottom & it's done. Please don't be dissuaded by the negative reviews. This machine covers clothes with water fully for auto fill (I've checked) & cleans great. Absolutely no complaints. The noises are indeed different than the old technology, but it's fine. Not loud at all. You just have to use this a few times instead of hating it without giving it a chance. I found the right settings for my family & love it. Cuts drying time down, too. I recommend this washing machine. I'm very pleased & if you'll give it a chance and find the right settings for you, I'm certain you'll like it too.
I just had this washer installed today and already I hate it. I thought because it has an agitator and a deep fill I would be able to use water and not wet air to wash my clothes. Alas I was wrong. You can use the deep fill option and wash your clothes with water but that is the only water level option other than the high efficiency, miniscule water, option. So I will be wasting tons of water and time washing anything other than a full load
Whoever engineered this washer should be jailed for stealing peoples hard earned money. I unfortunately bought this washer hoping for a decent wash. If you open the washer and wedge a flat head screw driver to let the washer run you will quickly see this washer does not agitate the clothes whatsoever. It’s depressing spending money on something that doesn’t work. I will never buy a Kenmore ever again.
I recently purchased this washer. Why I say still not sure is that Regarless what selection I make, I have never seen enough water to even barely cover the clothing, unless of course I choose “deep fill.” The one time I did do a deep fill, I also selected 2nd rinse... it took 2 hour’s for the load to finish. In my old washer, among many other desirable options, I could have chosen to fill just a little more that would have ensure a good wash. This lack of waterto cover the clothes is especially disturbing when I wash sheets because of the air pockets that are created such that a portion of the sheet never or rarely goes under the water. Also even though this has the agitates in the tub, that clothes come out mangled and sometimes in knots. And all this is suppose to clean my clothing no better?
We bought this washer a couple months ago. It’s not a bad washer there’s just some features that I absolutely hate. The locking feature is a pain. You can’t just open it in the middle of a wash to put something else in. If it’s spinning and you want to open it for some reason you have to wait until it comes to a complete stop which takes a while. Also you can’t turn it on with the lid open so if you want to pour liquid soap in and then rinse off the cup as the water is pouring in, you can’t do it. You’re left with a sticky cup always.
I'm an old school person. I like the simple "old fashion" washers where you can turn the knobs to set your preferences on several loads. This has knobs, but does not allow me to open the top to check the water level. The wash time is increased with this new machine. A load that use to take approximately 45 minutes, now takes 90 minutes and I don't get the fresh clean smell.
