I could not find any reviews on this washer before I bought it because it is so new but I made the decision to buy it anyway. I do like it but there are a couple things I don't care for although I am keeping it. I have run about 10 loads so far. It is very large and can fit a king size comforter and washes items thoroughly. One reason it is large is because there is no agitator in the center which takes up space. I have always had a washer with an agitator which fills up the washer with water above the clothes. This one conserves water and uses much less water and fills below the clothes. There is a "deep fill" option you can use with some settings that fills it up a little more. There are a ton of options as far as the type of items (cotton, delicates, darks to name a few), water temp, stain boost, spin speed, etc. One downfall is that it takes long time to wash clothes. It goes through various stages and the actual washing sound is short bursts and a tad louder than I thought it would be but a closed door to the laundry room helps! There is an express wash that runs about a half hour. The clothes/towels come out pretty wrinkled and wrapped close to each other tightly although the dryer helps with that. Overall it is pretty impressive but if you want a super quiet washer, this is not the right one. I bought the 25132 model first which was much louder and I exchanged it for this one. Sears is great about exchanges and no swap out fees.
I never do online reviews but this product is so terrible I am motivated to warn others. Dark clothes come out unwearable. Clean perhaps, but with colored stains, residue, etc on them. I've tried everything & this machine is garbage. I tried returning it but missed the 30 days. Sears unhelpful.
This Kenmore washer does the job; it is all about matching the proper cycle, water level, and detergent< less is more. It washes a full set of denim jeans,(7) flawlessly. It has all the features that we needed, pre-soak, extra fill, delay start, large capacity; plus we do not have to sanitize the drum as often.This machine replaced a Bosch 5400 4.4 cu ft washer. The Bosch was a phenomenal machine, major quirk was that it needs very little detergent, too much and it gunks up the tub and causes odors in drum and clothes. I would have bought another front loader, if I had the space, front loader door swings out into our tight laundry room. The major benefits from top-loader to front-loader are : we don't have to bend over to access the clothes, less sanitizing cycles, less KWH than the Bosch 10%-20%, 1200 RPM vs 850 RPM, can wash a king-size comforter, clothes are still spun dry, and more gentle washing. Major negative points is 1.35 more water 18-20 gal vs 14 gal for the Bosch-the quietest machine ever (under 50 db Kenmore at 50 db or slightly higher, still quiet). All around The Kenmore Series 600 fits our needs; use the proper cycle and water fill, not sure just add more water. I always had great experiences with the Kenmore brand and (Whirlpool).
