Sleek, Chic, and Quiet
I now understand how the negative reviews about poor cleaning are unjustified. The HE process with all brands leaves much more lint on the clothes than agitator machines which people have erroneously construed as dirt or poor rinsing. The lint removes quickly in the dryer and not only that but the clothes coming out of the dryer are even more lint free than clothes dryed from the agitator wash. I have seen no lint whatsoever on the dryed clothes and I have a cat with black & white fur so as weird as it seems, yes the clothes are very linty from the wash but it dissapears like magic in the dryer. And I haven't even used the liquid softener yet which should be even better than softener sheets. I checked other brands and it seems this is the nature of HE washes but it could be this model is worse with lint. If you like to hang your clothes instead of using a dryer, I can only assume that a front load washer would be better at this lint problem and probably stay away from HE top loaders period. I use the dryer for everything so the lint doesn't bother me and the amount of clothes I can do in one wash is fantastic so I am happy with this machine. Also, I think some people have put powder detergent in the liquid dispenser which is why they got residue as well.
DO NOT BUY this machine. This is the second machine we have tried and both have been faulty. The first Kenmore 28132 that we purchased from Searsoutlet.com in June 2016 did not fill with water at all. As we had already purchased the matching clothes dryer, we purchased a 2nd Kenmore 28132 from Sears.com. While this unit fills with some water, it does not fill enough to get all of the clothes wet. Clothes on the top can complete a full standard wash cycle and come out still dry. We have to run it on the "deep fill" and "bulky" items settings, along with 2 rinse cycles in order to attempt to clean the clothes. This eliminates any of the water saving features of the HE design. Even then, it still leaves soap residue on the clothes and does not do a good job of washing items. Once you are outside of the 30-day return window, Sears will not even take the item back on an exchange. They will insist that you have a repair technician come look at the machine. This machine is very overrated at a score of "69" from Consumer Reports.
We have had this washer for exactly a year. It is both the most expensive and the worse washer we have ever owned in 28 years. I DO NOT recommend it at all. Loads come out with white lines or stars or butterfly patterns on them (especially noticeable on dark heavy clothes like pants) I have heard that using deep fill and smaller loads helps, but it doesn't. I always add an extra rinse on the load. I normally have to do a load then go through each piece and re-rinse the pieces with white smudges on them one or two more times. (yes, that means I have now rinsed this load 3 times. Sometimes I give up and just take a wet washcloth to the streaks before I dry them. Laundry day is a long day now. I wonder if our white things also have lines all over them. I use All free and clear HE mighty pacs. I am starting to try just the liquid, because I wonder if the pacs are part of the problem, with cold water and a low fill. I have not called a tech to our house, seems like from other comments that does no good.
Satisfied with my purchase. No regrets. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions.
This is the worst washing machine that I have ever owned; I wish I could give it a negative stars rating. I bought this washing machine because it was nearly triple the load capacity of my old machine. The amount of laundry I do has doubled. How you ask? Because this machine is horrible. You can only fill the drum about 1/3 of the way, no clothes in the center. So maybe 2 pairs of pants, a few shirts, some underwear, a pair of socks if you’re lucky. You are going to set it to the Heavy Duty or Whites cycle with deepfill, timed oxy & double rinse. Now you wait nearly 2 hours. Once the cycle is complete, your clothes are going to be covered in LINT and somehow have new stains. So you run the cycle again only to be met with the same outcome. It’s absolutely awful.
I love the simplicity, the look, the efficiency and the deep tub. It also matches my dryer that I already had.
