The dryer that was installed at my house when I bought it started making noise. It was taking 90 minutes to dry so I decided I needed a new dryer. My washing machine, a Maytag unit was working fine. I had no reason to replace it other than I decided I might as well buy both a washing machine and dryer. Buying appliances is very frustrating. Buying from Sears and buying the Kenmore label simplifies everything. Sears offers 12 months free financing with their credit card. Kenmore branded products tend to be very good value and Sears offers extremely good service and will allow you to exchange products if you change your mind immediately. I did a lot of research about High Efficiency (HE) machines. The best place to research is You Tube. Many people are frustrated because their clothes don't get get clean and they wind up with soap stains and spots on their clothes. I got rid of all my laundry detergent before the new machine arrived. I bought HE compatible laundry soap. I carefully read the instruction how much detergent to use. HE washing machines do not soak clothes in water. they move the clothes from top to bottom and spray the clothes with jets at the bottom of the washer. There is no agitator. The net is my clothes are definitely cleaner than before. The washing machine is using less water and less electricity than before. Also, this machine has huge capacity. I never have problems with the machine becoming unbalanced and shutting off with large blankets as I did with my other machine. Some people report that the machine is loud. I don't find this true at all. The HE machine makes different sounds than older washers but I find that this machine is much quieter than any washing machine I have owned in the past. There are many much more expensive washing machines available. I believe that this unit provides all the very best features at a reasonable price. This is a much better washing machine than I have ever owned. It is a HE machine which will reward the owner in many ways. It reduces the amount of water, detergent and electricity, cleans the clothes very well and treats clothes more gently than older agitator models. All that is required is that you read how to use HE machines. Buy the right detergent. Load the machine properly. Only use the suggested amount of detergent.
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.
Uses so little water, large loads do not get clean
Thus washer does a great job!
I've bought this item for my mom and she's only had it since August 7 2017 and already leaking from behind. Didn't get the extra warranty but sure hope it can be repaired soon......
After having a front loader for the past 10 years, I was hesitant to go back to a top loader. Boy am I glad I purchased this washer. Not only can I do extra large loads, but its very efficient on water usage and senses how much it needs per load. My clothes come out really clean and very well wrung out which means less drying time. We are a family of 6 and do laundry almost daily. Very satisfied.
Sometimes takes too much time trying to input settings I want instead of automated settings pertaining to water temp etc and cant satisfactorily wash bulky bedding - thats too wrinkled too
We have a small family and bought the bigger size because we have pets and like to wash our comforters and quilts pretty regularly. It'd does a great job and is very gentle. Definitely feels like a solid purchase. We are maybe 5 months in to owning it and hope it will hold up for the long run, but haven't seen any signs to the contrary.
Runs great, HE, fairly quite, holds a lot of clothes for a cycle. Only issue is and it is annoying is that the clean washer cycle needs ran every 12-15 cycles. The washer recommends every 25 and the machine has an alert when to run it. Clothes come out w/ gray almost lint-like film in spots.
Had this wash machine for 7 months and it washed really well. Then one day during a wash I had the code F3 E1 come up. 6 service calls, 4 control boards later, sears said they would replace it per my warranty. I really hope this machine is just a lemon.
Not sure if I will go back with this same wash machine
