this is our 3rd laundry center from Sears over the past 22 years. I love them - they take up little space - work well - last well - we ordered the 24" this time - did not realize how much difference in size it would be from the 27" - major difference - if you're using it to do more than 2 peoples laundry I recommend you get the 27" - it's only 2 of us & we're retired so the 24" would just fine for us, but if we have to get another one we will go with the 27". As always, Sears products are great!
Had to replace out old one after 25 years of maintenance free service. Our new one will probably outlive us. Lots of laundry within a minimal footprint. Do yourself a favor - get one.
I own several of these units for apts I rent. There is a fundamental design issue with the springs that hold the tub in place. Because most washers (at least unitixed units) no longer shut-off when the load is unbalanced, a large/unbalanced load will just continue to run and the result is the eventual failure of one of the springs. I am able to remove the front panel and return the tub onto the spring and it will work again for a few months until it happens again. I spoke with an appliance repairman and before even specifying the issue, he diagnosed the spring design issue. These units are made by whirlpool so you will want to avoid those as well. It's a shame that whirlpool won't recognize this design problem and pay for a permanent fix. Paying a service tech to put your wash tub back onto the springs when it's not a permanent fix is not fair. I have begun purchasing the GE model instead and have been pleased so far although my GE units are only a year old. They are much taller than the Kenmore/Whirlpool models, buts also have a larger capacity.
This model and 1 other one listed here are the 'same' machine but we received still another model # which does not show up here. All 3 machines are the same but have one digit different from one another in the model #. So I do not know how to address this: ButNot only is the noise unbearable to us, but neighbors, who have lived here in this high-rise building for decades without hearing a washing machine, reported loud noise from this washer and we have 1ft. thick cement walls We are sending it back. This one is **** which replaced a similar but good one. This is made more cheaply, probably in China - thinner metal, the door is not lined up well, lid does not stay up easily and the lint filter fits poorly. But most of all it is the loud washing agitation noise, not to mention the easy offload banging - you have to rearrange the load 3-4 times to get it just right. We paid $1316 on sale, more than other GE and Whirlpool models because we believed 'you get what you pay for.' Not so,
I bought this older version model when we were just a family of two, and lived in a small townhome and didn't have much space, and could only accomodate 1 power cord. It worked great from the start and has stayed with us with every move. 13 years later and now as a family of 4, we have out grown the capacity a bit, as we do about 5 full loads a week. The dryer takes a bit longer to dry the clothing these days, but it still puts out good heat. And like an old man it has presented some new noises that it didn't in its younger years. But do the math. The little machine has done a ton of loads and has far exceeded our expectations, and well worth what we paid. We're looking to purchase a couple of larger capacity machines to replace. Because this one has served us so well, we are only looking at Kenmores.
I purchased this Kenmore washer and dryer about ten years ago from the Sears Outlet in Voorhees. Not only did I get a good deal, but it is still in good working order after putting it through a vigorous ordeal. You see, my Mother had been incontinent for all of those ten years that I had the washer & dryer. (she died recently at 86 years old) She would not wear a diaper as she said she was not a baby. Sooo, that I could keep her happy in her old age, I washed her bedding twice a day, not to mention all the other clothes that kept the washer and dryer going all day, everyday. Plus, it was convenient in her downstairs bathroom that I had especially designed for her. It fit just right in the space. I look at this product as the "Energizer Bunny"?.it keeps going and going!! Thank you Sears for making such a good product.
