Make Laundry Day Smarter
The Right Amount of TLC
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.
Door doesn't shut right and they say can't adjust
We had the Kenmore elite front loader for awhile now, never had an issue. Love it even more after we discovered the self cleaning cycle
This washer, and it's accompanying cavernous dryer, are highly efficient, quick, and quiet. The steam does make noise at times during in the cycle, but this is only for short periods of time. Clothes are much cleaner and brighter than any previous top loader and older, smaller front load machines. Have owned for five months.
