Overall I love this machine, only problem is it squeaks while washing, not sure if it's off balance or what. I may have to contact someone and get it checked out. Everything else about this washer I love. I wouldn't recommend it for short people unless they don't mind standing on a stool to reach bottom. It is deep, but that's one thing I like about it. I can finally wash my bedding, blankets and such everything fits...It's great.
This has been the worse machine my wife and I have ever purchased! we took interest in this washer/dryer because of the ability to connect w/ smart phone and the salesman said we could operate the machines using our phone. all it does is tell us when the washer is done. On top of that when we received our washer and tested, it was leaking (this happened twice) and the final one they brought out was not leaking but had a defective control panel. and its extremely difficult to get a service tech out. this has been going on since September! Hopefully this saves you from the nightmare that is still happening to me!
We have had our machines since August of 2018, and have truly enjoyed every feature and the great capacity each has! Knock on wood, we haven’t had any repair issues to date, and are a family of 4 with a 15 and 17-year-old. We definitely give the machines a run for their money and keep them on pretty frequent use throughout any given week. I’m 5’4”, and have to dive in a bit to grab items at the bottom of the washer (after the cycle finishes), but I much prefer the convenience of having such a large capacity machine to begin with. The Accela-wash feature is great + the ability to control the cycle type and length so many different ways (based on whatever you’re washing). The only down-side is not being able to just select the rinse-cycle only. Zero mildew smell! Looks new—works perfect!
Until a couple of weeks ago, this washer worked decent for us. It seemed to clean the clothes well and the features are nice. But a couple of weeks ago, while the washer was in the spin cycle, the agitator disk broke loose and crashed into the side of the basket. It sounded like a bomb went off in our utility room!! The plastic cap in the middle of the agitator disk has only 3 plastic clips holding it in place. A plastic clip broke off, the agitator disk damaged the side of the basket, and after the technician visit, we found out that the drive motor shaft broke as well. But the worst part...we were 2 weeks past the 1 year manufacturer's warranty. The technician said it would be a $900 repair...a new one can be purchased for $700. Sears will not help out at all, so we are now looking for a new washer. It is very frustrating when you pay good money for a product and find out that it is made of lesser quality parts. This Kenmore washer is very similar to an LG washer, so I am assuming that LG makes this washer. Given the shaky financial state of Sears, I can not recommend this Kenmore washer or the LG washer. I will be looking for a new washer from another manufacturer.
I had 4 technicians come fix it in the 8 months I've had it. It's always a different part that needs to be replaced.
I bought this washing machine because I was tired of the moldy smell that front loaders have and this top loader smells moldy also. It actually smells worse than any front loading machine I have owned. Please don't buy. Worst machine I have ever owned.
