Great Washer

I am very pleased with this washer. Easy to use, extremely quiet, clothes come out clean and it's great for delicates as well as large comforters. I have three dogs so it really gets a work out. I really love this washer....along with the matching dryer. Great price and delivery was handled by professionals....on time and very courteous. Sales person explained everything thoroughly and there were no surprises or disappointments. Very pleasant buying experience.

Designed to fail

Buyer beware. Our $1300 Sears Kenmore Elite HE3 side-loading super high efficiency washer after 10 years: The tub is stainless, but the spider frame is aluminum and constantly get's bombarded with detergent (CORROSIVE TO ALUMINUM). The cheesy seal leaks and eventually wrecks the inner bearings. The entire spindle, the water, the laundry(30+ lbs?) rests on ONE aluminum shaft and 2 small bearings in the very rear of the tub. As the weight pushes the front down, the spin basket shears the plastic outer front tub. This washer was actually DESIGNED to fail!!! New bearings and frame parts from Searspartsdirect you ask? A mere $231.69 + $504.98 + $330.34 in parts and 10 hours of labor for 2 people. Add shipping, whatever that may cost. After you are done repairing it, you can be assured that since it was designed to fail, you probably extended the life 3 to 5 years. Whirlpool Engineers should be ashamed of themselves. On top of that, we had to wash our clothes TWICE because of moldy stink mildew, even after we left the door open. Take that, efficiency!!

does not clean clothes


This machine does not get clothes clean. Over time, they get dirtier and dirter. Even with heavy duty, pre-wash and extra rinse, clothes still smell (from a restaurant, with my perfume, from running) and the cycle takes over two hours.
In addition, the front leaks. We have had it repaired twice to no avail.
Other/ older front loads are a MUCH better option.

Very smelly, noisy and long cycles


We are constantly fighting smelly washer, smelly clothes even when leaving door ajar and washer cleaning tablets weekly. Drain holes in door seal fill with hair/dirt and can't be cleaned. Poor design. Its also not quiet as promised

1 year - 3 month. Giant sudden leak at the front door. Sears wants over $200 to fix, also got much louder within 3 months.

This model is garbage, will never buy from Sears again.

Good Clean,Bad Color Fade


This washer frustrates me because although I select cold wash, you can feel the machine getting very hot especially during the spin cycle, which makes washing clothes of different colors all together an issue, because all my whites turn to blue, my colored clothes fade, and then my clothes look worn out and faded and old!!! I dont wear many of my clothes that changed color so much b/c of it! Also its not the most quiet washer, its actually pretty loud and shakes tremendously so dont put things on top of the washer!

Never Again!


I was able to use this machine for just about 2 months before the control board/panel went out. A technician was sent out three times and was provided the wrong part number by Sears when he called to troubleshoot. Three visits later with different (wrong) parts, it was discovered to be the control board. Surprise! There's another reviewer on here with the same problem and I assume there are more but the reviews haven't been left. Why would I assume this? Well, because the part is STILL on back order. Three wrong parts, one VERY backordered part that indicates a common problem with this machine obviously. Customer service has been a joke, the part is still back ordered, you'll get a replacement, no you won't get a replacement, the part is on backorder, you'll get a replacement, no you won't get a replacement, etc. etc. etc. This is exactely how it's gone down. Also, pretty much from delivery to the machine breaking has been nothing but a nightmare. The first machine (this one) that was delivered coded and they left everything in the middle of my kitchen (literally) and the machine sitting there coding out. Customer service didn't want to provide a replacement for WEEKS. I had to take time to go to the store and have an associate get a replacement sent in days. This is the one I'm on now with the bad backordered part. My machine was originally purchased the end of December and went down in March. I called in on 03/30/17 and here we are at 05/15/17 with the same 'ol same 'ol. So I guess my only option is take more time and money waiting for either a part or replacement. What a joke! I have purchased so many products from Sears but this washing machine purchase has been nothing short of a nightmare!

Leaks, smells, doesn't use enough water and Sears can't fix it


This washer leaks from the bottom and through the door seal. Its erratic though, I can wash 3-4 loads and its fine, then it'll *** water out the bottom. Although being perfectly level, the drum sometimes becomes so unbalanced it hits the door and pushes the bottom open enough to leak. Sears has been out numerous times and claims they can't see a leak. The last repairman said its a problematic model that has "mystery leaks".

Door seal leaks at 4 months


All in all this is not a bad washer other than the constant drip down the front below the door. This started 4 months following my purchase. I had Sears come out expecting a seal replacement only to have the service technician tell me that the tiny little fuzz in the seal fold was the cause and that it had to be spotless in order not to leak. I've had front loaders for literally decades and this was news to me. I've never had one leak like that....ever. So i just deal with the drip....knowing I will go back to LG when this one dies.
