This machine is very small making it a perfect choice for tight quarters. It also came with the hoses to connect it to a sink if necessary. Despite its small size, it can still hold a full size load of laundry due to the open design (not center agitator). I fit a queen sized quilt in the machine, amazingly. It also has a glass top that folds, which I love. The digital keypad is very thorough for water level, temperature, type of load (eg. delicate, heavy, etc.) but very intuitive and easy to use. It has a digital timer in minutes to tell you how your setting choices will affect the time it takes to complete the washing. The settings can be locked/unlocked at your will. There is also a pause/stop button that allows the lid to open to add more items, or just pause to shower, etc. Very happy!
Piece of junk! I have had for three weeks and it has broken twice already. Definitely not built for daily use and/or heavy use. I purchased this for my RV because it is one of the only washing machines that will fit through the door. Unfortunately, this washing machine is very prone to break-downs. Kenmore needs to redesign this piece of junk.
I did 4 medium sized loads and it worked fine. On the 5th load, the tub sounded like it was going to come through the side of the machine...whomp, whomp, whomp.
I have this washer in my vacation condo and could not wait for the repairman to come in 3 days, so we're going to try again to get someone out before the warranty expires while I can schedule another vacation. I'm pretty frustrated. I would get the cheaper brand from online next time. I think they're all made in the same place.
I've only used this washer for four loads. I like that it gives you three water levels among other standard settings. It's a basic washer with no extra frills, which is what I wanted.
I bought compact Maytag washer and dryer. With 2 years the dryer died, one year later the washer. They were nothing but trouble. This compact Kenmore is the best! Easy to use, cleans beautifully and is very compact. LOVE IT! I am only buying Kenmore from now on. Cant wait for my full size washer and dryer!
I've done three loads of laundry in this washer, and so far, so good. It's sleek looking and compact, but definitely big enough to do a load of sheets.
It is very good, thanks.
