Awesome washer, it is absolutely huge for a front loading model.

Ok, nothing bad to say about this one. It is huge, the biggest I've seen for a front loading model for the home (of course there are commercial size ones in the laundromats I am NOT comparing it to those). Anyways clothes always come out dry in 50 minutes (which is very fast as I've tried some big loads).

Returning it

This will be going back to store. When using the moisture sensor to dry, there is no way to change the preset default temperature setting. Example: instructions say to dry jeans on heavy duty, but that is defaulted to high temperature and cannot be changed. The only way to modify the temperature setting for any load is to use "timed dry", which does not use the moisture sensor to determine when clothes are dry.

Shopped during labor day sale. Supposedly earned 200.00 cash back rewards to be broken down into payments over 6 months.
Yeah right. I thought it was a good offer to cover some christmas expenses while still getting a new machine. Call. Kmart doesnt add the points. They argue with me . They dont adjust it. They lie. They suck!!!!! False advertisement!!!!!

Extremely winding and rattling noise. Replacement was better with no noise


The dryer dries well, but very noisy. When I put cloths in dryer it rattles from the back panel. The. When I start it has a winding like noise. The repairmen adjusted the legs which helped some. When the front panel was open I noticed everything was loose inside with metal rubbing against metal and the riveted panels were very loose, which in my opinion caused the dryer to make a lot of noise. The whole dryer was very loose and wobbly no matter how level it was, I don't understand how this dryer ever passed inspection. I called sears and requested a replacement . Hopefully the replacement will be better. I checked a lower end model at Sears store and it was not loose and felt solid. Replacement came in and was not loose and make no rattling noise!
