I bought this washer to replace my old one. It works perfectly. The clothes come out almost dry, fluffy, and clean. The washer runs very quiet. Very large capacity. Love it.
I bought this washer to replace a Whirlpool Duet front loader. I bought it for the size. The impeller is very rough on clothes whether I make a large or small load. The amount of lint I now see in my dryer vent is dangerously scary! I have to clean out the vent multiple times while drying a load of towels; otherwise, it overflows the vent and spreads throughout the dryer. Shout Color Catcher sheets come out of the washer torn in half. Clothes are twisted and wrinkled and cannot be hung to dry because they're misshapen. I now dry most clothes instead of hanging like I used to. I'm afraid the clothes won't last long and will become threadbare. New soccer socks come out with strings coming off of them. Dark towels have balls of lighter towels and strings stuck in the fibers.
Considering the cost of this washer and matching dryer, I expected to have a very good experience, but my purchase turned out to be the worst purchase of my life.
I had a 15-year-old Kenmore washer and dryer that finally wore out. I had never had a service call to fix my old set, so I decided to buy from Sears again. Just days before the warranty was out on my new set, I had to call for repair to fix the fabric softener dispenser. The guy replaced old with new, but the new part did the same thing and by then, the warranty had expired. I have now given up and just try deal with the mistake I made.
I don't use fabric softener in the wash and I use two rinses for every load.
I've had to make way too many concessions with this washer and dryer and would never advise anyone else to buy it. Although the tub is huge, what does that matter when putting in more clothes means more clothes are ruined from an odor that never gets fully washed or rinsed out.
The alarm that alerts me when the cycle is done is not nearly loud enough, but most of the time that doesn't matter, because I have to babysit this washer to be sure it doesn't get off balance or so I can try to stop the twisting of my clothes. Who wants to do that? An automatic washer and dryer are supposed to be ... well, automatic.
I read the owner's manual over and over, but there's just no help for most problems I've had. It's nearly worthless. I learned on my own that trying to evenly distribute clothing around the agitator makes it worse for going off balance.
I always use the deep fill feature, and I used two rinses on every load, but it doesn't get my clothes clean. I use the "Clean Washer" feature as often as recommended or sooner, but my clothes never smell like they are clean. I love the smell of clean clothes, fresh out of the dryer, but I haven't had that smell for more than a year since I bought this set.
I've wished many times that I had bought a simple washer and dryer from Speed Queen, with an agitator like my old set and with an option to turn off the water-savng feature.
I've decreased the number of pieces hoping to get a better rinse, but the load is weighed and the water is adjusted for the smaller load. The dryer ends up rolling my clothes into one big roll and damp clothes are lost inside larger pieces.
I agree with another reviewer who said this washer is **** clothes. It twists clothes so tightly, without adequate water to wash them, that the wrinkles are permanently pressed into some of my expensive clothes. I cannot figure out how the agitator twists, them as if I had wrung them out by hand. That's mostly because of the smokey color of the washer lid and the condensation that builds up quickly. The dryer does nothing to help remove the wrinkles. I had just bought expensive bath towels and now they have snags all over them.
If you are in the mood or the market for a washer and dryer, do yourself a favor and don't buy this one or the dryer that matches.
I am a mom to five children, four of whom who are boys who produce lots of VERY dirty laundry. I was sold on this machine because of its super large capacity and the sheer fact that I could reduce the number of loads of laundry I do on a daily basis by being able to combine smaller loads into fewer larger ones. I am editing my post because of the character limit so hint to Sears if you want an honest opinion, increase your character count. Positives: ok cleaning on heavily soiled items, super large capacity. Negatives: blades tear items, rough on clothing, produces huge amt of lint, doesn’t clean items that must be washed more delicately on normal or lower settings if lightly soiled, dispensers don’t completely drain and mold, Water level never gets to even mid tub even when full of items
If you like to soak OR choose a rinse temperature you can no longer do that with this newer model. The only good thing is the size of the tub but the way machines limit water I wonder how much of a benefit there really is. Disappointed.
