We have only had this washer for a week but I am already in love with it. We upgraded from a Kenmore elite top load washer that was probably 10-15 yrs old, it did the job except it was starting to leave little holes in our clothes, so it was time to upgrade. After scouring the internet and reading review after review, we settled on this set. I was terrified because a lot of reviews on the new washers were pretty bad. Sears was having a sale for $850 per piece so we scooped em up. We Paid for delivery and installation and the 3yr warranty. Overall, the salesman was great and so were the installers. The set has been working perfectly since we got them. The only error code we got was because my husband didn't know what he was doing and threw towels in with a pillow. I know its going to take some more getting use to but my advice would be to read the instructions and use Deep fill if you are wanting to do a large load. You can even still use the washer beads. This is a great machine so far!!
Bought this at Sears on Saturday and returned it Monday along with the steam dryer. Put in 4 towels that I distributed evenly around tub. It spent several minutes balancing and weighing load. When water was added, the water did not even cover the towels. It kept trying to balance the load and went through that function many times. The remaining time kept getting longer and longer until it showed one hour and forty minutes to complete load. The glass top is useless as it gets fogged up. The print on the options were so small that both my husband and I had to use a flashlight at night to see them. I had looked forward to getting a new top load washer as I was using a front loader, which I hated. The rubber gasket had gotten moldy and smelled on that washer. It was an LG and very expensive. This Kenmore washer and dryer rang up at around $2,000 which included the extended warranty. I told my husband that I would rather keep the old front loader than put up with this nonsense. Luckily we hadn't gotten rid of it yet!
Works fine so far. Quiet.
Great for large laundry loads! Several cycle, cycle modifiers and special cycle option choices to ensure proper laundering. Thick liquid bleach requires using less for all of it to be dispensed during the load. Absence of a lint filter results in the lint remaining on the clothes. One of the time LED displays had a light stop working, requiring replacement. Usually use the deep fill option to submerge the load.
Works great but the 29 min wash can sometimes run an hr and a half depending on the load do to the sensors.
Had this set for almost 8 years, replaced 2 control boards, 1 water pump. The agitator drum cap popped off the other day.. It chews up laundry and is rusting out. I have had maytag in past and will never purchase kenmore elite again. Dryer has had no issues other than the plastic on steam recepticle discolored. No the laundery room does not have a window so no sunlight. This washer can really be rough on clothes. We don't use bleach often, just lysol laundry sanitizer and oxyclean. One of the reviews mentions that it seems to use less water and I would agree with that. I would rather have it use more water and be less abrasive on clothes.
