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.
We bought this washer and decided to return it after less than 2 weeks for two reasons: it makes unusual, annoying sounds and it doesn't rinse the clothes well enough. At the beginning of the cycle, the washer makes clicking and knocking sounds--you can get used to these. What we didn't like was the loud gurgling, sucking sound it makes frequently while it rinses/spins. It's like the sound an older toilet makes as the water glugs out of the bowl. As for the rinsing, I read reviews saying that dark loads had white residue on the clothes at the end of the cycle. I thought there was a good chance that the wrong detergent or amount of detergent was used. Then it happened to me, and I've had a high-efficiency machine for 15 years without a residue problem. To combat this with this Kenmore, I had to choose 2 rinses on every load I did (because if there's residue you can see on dark clothes, you know it's there on the light-colored stuff, too.) I feel like I shouldn't have to do that. We decided to exchange it for a front-load washer in order to have a quieter machine that adequately rinses the clothes.
Purchased the matching set because I have always used Kenmore and Sears is known for the high quality products. And again they did not disappoint. The set is beautiful, easy to use work great! Now the search is on for a Kenmore range!
I would not buy this washing machine again. It wasn't long after I had it that it began to smell like mildew, and smells like mildew to this day (have owned it less tan two years). It doesn't clean clothes like a the old washing machines. I have done all the things suggested by Sears salespeople and technicians, and nothing they've told me has worked. I never used too much detergent in it as advised, and I've "cleaned it out" timely as suggested, but again, none of these suggestions has worked. I bought it despite what previous owners had described in their comments about it, and now wish I had listened to them. I'm certain there's no resolution for my problems with the machine except buy another one/kind, or live with it. The matching dryer works fairly well, but the door on the one I purchased does not close flush with front of the machine. Where are these products imported from?!?!
