Handles Huge Loads
Designed to handle loads of towels, hampers of laundry and huge comforters with ease, this metallic silver Kenmore Elite 5.2 cu. ft. front-load washer lets you bid a fond farewell to the laundromat.
Treat Your Laundry Right
Smart Motion Technology blends up to 6 different wash motions using a quiet Direct Drive motor for customized care for every type of fabric. You’ll always be able to give your clothes some customized love with 9 custom cycles, 5 soil levels, 5 water temperatures and 5 spin speed options.
Tackles Tough Stains with Ease
The Steam Treat option takes care of stubborn set-in stains with tough steam power. The Kids Wear Cycle scrubs out set-in stains and runs the load through a second rinse cycle to ensure clothes are clean and clear of dirt and detergents. No more pre-treating, scrubbing or soaking.
Safer Sanitizing Cycle
The NSF-certified sanitizing cycle uses high water temperatures to quickly kill 99.9% of certain types of bacteria without the need for harsh bleaches or other chemicals. Now you can wash your little one’s bib and know it’s absolutely clean.
Same Deep Clean Done in Less Time
I have owned this unit and the dryer for 10 months, as many others have posted there is no "dedicated" Spin Only" button. BUT you can do it very simply. After a cycle is done, and the machine is Off, 1. Hit the Power Button. 2. Hit the Spin Speed button to the desired spin level. (you will see that the Spin indicator light is light up BUT the Rinse Indicator is NOT lit up! So when you have bulky items, read the manual, use the appropriate setting, Bulky or Comforter, then the machines programming will complete the wash cycle and spin, probably at Medium. After this is done use the settings I laid out and you can reSpin Only at High or Extra High and get more water out! Sears PLEASE put this in future manuals!!! Your product rating will GO UP!!!!!
To start, this machine is incapable of spinning out comforters without developing a UE (unbalanced load) error. You will find yourself pulling out a sopping wet comforter, dripping all over your floor, to reposition and try again. The machine will only allow 3 attempts to complete the spin cycle, before powering off. Now it gets better! If you are unsuccessful, there is not option for just a spin cycle, but only "Rinse & Spin". Therefore, you are now taking your soaking wet comforter, and wetting it down even more, before the machine will perform the spin cycle. It is inevitable that this will occur, causing you to find yourself spending the day just trying to get the comforter ready for the dryer. Also, this machine will at random dump water, from the underside of the unit, on your floor. That's right, you will walk into your laundry area and find a nice size puddle by your washing machine. Unless you are placing this unit on a concrete floor, be prepared for the worst.
I bought this a month ago, I do truthfully love it ,and I do love sears service fast delivery

We love our new washer I highly recommend the Kenmore Elite 5.2 ct ft front-load washer.
Purchased. In November 2018. It is my first front load washer. It cleans better than any washer I've owned. It is so big inside. It holds alot more clothes so laundry gets done quicker. It uses so much less water than my previou top loader. It has saved me alot on my water bill. Everything comes out so fresh and clean and in a shorter amount of time. Accela wash is wonderful! I
