Seems OK
I was a little apprehensive about this model (2661532) because of the reviews. The thing is, almost all laundry centers have bad reviews. I installed it in our condo, so the simple, easy to understand controls are a plus. This is the kind of machine they would have made in Bulgaria or East Germany 50 years ago. Very basic! It makes some unsettling knocking noises during the wash cycle, and it's louder then regular machines, but it does clean well. I would have preferred a stainless steel tub, but the plastic one seems OK. You can get one for less then half price at a Sears outlet store. ........... PS. I HATE Sears phone system. Hire some real people to answer the phones!

Please redesign for the 21st century!

I agree with an earlier reviewer that this design must be from an eastern block country circa 1940's. It has NO frills what so ever. It's very loud and the random knocking sounds makes me think something is going to break at any second. It's ridiculously slow. (A light normal light load takes 52 minutes.) That said, I've had it for 8 months with no problems. It's installed it a condo that I rent. Because of all the bad reviews, I purchased the Sears 3 year extended warranty. Even if I was 100% pleased with it, I still wouldn't recommend it because of the automated Sears phone system. It took me over an hour to find someone that would give me the number of the salesman that sold me the machine. Please hire some real engineers and do a total redesign making it faster, quieter, more reliable, Eco-friendly, and with some modern features that stand alone machines have.

Great washer/dryer

I have had this unit for 1 week after my 12 year old Kenmore unit died. Its is great. I wash about 2 loads a day. With 3 small kids it gets lots of use. I love the auto water level feature. I feel in the long run it will save on the water bill by leaving it on automatic instead of a small, medium or large load. I'm loving the fabric softener dispenser button. No more downey ball for me. Also, the dryer is huge. Has cut down on my drying big time. The only small issue is the sound it makes when it washes. I didn't even notice at first. With kids home all day all I hear are the kids so I only noticed it after we had it a few days and the kids were in bed. But its not loud enough to annoy me so to me its no big deal. I recommend this product to anyone.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Piece of garbage

I had my unit for 2 years. The main seal broke and the transmission needed replacement. $500.00 repair.

new owner - concerned about noise on gear changes

I have had this unit for a week now - we've done about 8 loads of laundry. I am concerned about the noises it makes when it changes gears. The agitation cycle seems to be pretty loud as well. The dryer takes forever to dry clothing!

Do Not Buy,

I have had this machine for 6 years. The level sensor system has quit woking 3 times and the water has overflowed the tub each time. Wash water runs everywhere. It appears the tube running down into the tub gets clogged up

Eats buttons on a regular basis

We have been living with one of these Sears laundry centers for about 2 years. So far we have not seen any of the mechanical problems described by other reviewers, however there are problems. About once every two weeks a shirt button will get caught in the dryer tub vent screen. The shirt will twist up into a wrinkled mess, and the button will come off the shirt. It seems the square holes in the vent screen are just the right size to catch and hold a button. Very annoying. When the spin cycle engages, the machine is as noisy as a locomotive. Fortunately we can close a door to the laundry area, and at least decrease the noise. Cant imagine this in a small apartment. Other than that it seems to wash and dry fine, but I would not recommend the machine to anyone.

Horrible Laundry Center

I am currently on my 2nd laundry center since Dec 2012. First one broke in under 90 days. This second one is now being repaired for the 3rd time since March of 2013. The cost of parts alone is almost the cost of the machine. Do not even consider this machine.. Have not had a problem with the dryer at all. All problems have been with the washer.

Broken Transmission 3 Months post warranty

I am very disappointed in this laundry center in particular with the washing machine. I purchased the unit in November 2012 and wouldn't you know the transmission is bad in Feb. 2014. I know there are lemons in anything you buy, but it definitely seems there is a problem based on the reviews here. I do not recommend this product and definitely is making me rethink buying the Kenmore label if this is the quality they are going to put forward.
