Love this washer and companion Dryer

Have had this for a couple years now. No issues what-so-ever. Love the smartness of it. Drop in the cloths, add soap. Press Power. Press start and it takes care of everything. It's large enough to do a king size comforter and it does it well. Great machine.

Buyer beware

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!

Quality is not great


The washing machine has held up but quality of the materials is not the best. All of the surface area around the bleach tray is completely rusted.
Another disappointing Kenmore product.

Kenmore Elite 31553 Washer


I bought this Washer & matching Dryer almost 1 year ago, Dec.2017 for a new home. Looks are great, nice stainless steel drum, washes clothes well & is very noisy. I wish I had my old Maytag back which I sold with my home in Florida. I would not recommend this product especially for the price. Buy a Maytag from Sears, they have great sales.

Not Impressed


Washed 3 blankets on Bedding setting and part of the top one never even got wet. All were in the exact position during entire wash. Tub turns but contents don't. Blankets were not clean and the top one didn't even get wet in one area.

Good product


So far we love the washer and easy to use. We like how quiet it is and the size is great as well.
