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.
if you need to do bullky or heavy duty washing, this machine is not robust enough. you must set on deep fill and it still takes to washings. not efficient or cost effective. might has well get a more robust machine. without an agitator it can not move the items around sufficiently if at all. it is fine for average clothing, sheets and at least minimum towels. very disappointed
This is a great washer. I've gotten excellent results using the default settings with the different cycles. I don't understand the negative reviews. My only guess is those that have been disappointed with the results are either using the wrong type of detergent or too much of it. My only recommendation is to read the manual before starting. The machine is simple to use and looks good. I recommend it.
Biggest wast of money. Kenmore needs to fire the half wit engineer that designed this product. Why make a delux wash basin when the dang thing won't even fill, evendors on "deep fill"? There have been times my laundry had spots that never even got wet! And no, it isn't from the "spin cycle spinning it dry." The agitator only agitates at the very bottom, so if you have a deep load, the top is not going to be washed. It's soooooo frustrating! I have to wash in micro loads to get anything clean and I'm talking 5 articles of THIN clothing at the MAX!!! No more than 3 pair of jeans at a time either.
Roomy with lots of options. I like the automatic water level detection to determine the level of water. As long as you separate the clothing from anything that might "shed" (like towels) there is no lint or residue on clothing.
I used to take our king size comforter to a local laundromat to wash. At first I could not believe it would fit in this washing machine but it does! No center tower to take up space. Also uses minimal water, auto measures it to save. Only fault is that when the wash is done, the beep or alarm or whatever you want to call it can't be heard more than 15 feet away from the machine so I have to constantly check if wash is done. The timer is a prop. When it says the wash will take 25 mins for example, it may take 20 mins, or it may take 35 mins. Very arbitrary. Now for the main review: It gets my clothes very clean and does not tangle and knot clothes together. I would buy it again.
I have done several loads in my new washer since I got it a few days ago. The controls offer great flexibility. I like to use the deep fill option, although it's not necessary. I was able to wash almost twice as much as I could with my last machine, which was a top load agitator model. This HE machine's load was so large I had to separate it into two loads when drying.
