I liked this washer while it was working, but it did take some getting used to. The problem? It lasted a whole 16 months (of only two loads a week) and started grinding so loud I'm sure the neighbors heard it. In our area Sears has contracted with a&e service for repairs. What a joke. Their reviews are worse than these reviews. I'm too angry to say anything else. Extremely disappointed.
I've had three Kenmore washing machines over the past 38 years, have been VERY happy with all of them except for our latest purchase. We had it two days and returned it. The locking lid is a joke, the water drained completely out every time we tried to open it, and no, we didn't press the button too long. A washing machine shouldn't take an hour to complete a load. This new one certainly wasn't built as sturdily as the old ones we've had. Spent some extra money and bought a Speed Queen, built like a tank, does a great job and no locking lid.
Simple washer with lots of features as the much more expensive units. Easy to set up and easy reaching into the tub to load and move the laundry to the dryer.
I just got this washer and I like it but there are some differences with this machine. There is no fabric softener hole and the lid locks so during the rinse you could add it but it's time consuming because the lid has to unlock and lock again. I will invest in a downy ball for this issue. Other than that it works well and its easy to use.
When my old machine quit, I thought only a Kenmore will I buy from now on. I got this Kenmore and I'm so disappointed. Worse and most aggravating machine I've ever owned. Hate this machine and will think twice before ever buying another Kenmore. The time it takes to wait on the sensors to decide to make this machine work is a waste of my time. I would not recommend this machine.
I purchased this washer at the sale price and think it was a great bargain. It is the perfect size for my needs and does a good job at cleaning my clothes.
I bought this washer 30 months ago. Washer quit moving into spin cycle from rinse. So called Sears service who came out and charged me $217.22 to NOT fix my machine. Left me in the same spot. So I called for another service. This guy told me that this machine was a lemon/(piece of junk) -his words- and that many features go out over a short time. Buy a new one, he suggested. I contacted customer service and was treated as despicable as one could imagine. The service department is full of outright liars and jerks. I know this is a bottom line washer that does barely an acceptable job. But I would have like to have gotten more than 2 1/2 years before it fell apart. Sears defrauded me out of $217.22 pure and simple. I will never shop there again. I am a single person and did not overuse this machine in anyway. If you have a family buy a Maytag or Whirlpool--But not from Sears!!!!! I hope this helps someone before Sears takes it down.
I got this washer a year and a half ago and it just broke down on me. It won't even drain the water from the machine. I can't believe it broke down after one and a half years. Its not worth the trouble spend a little more and get a good machine.
I was VERY unhappy when my washer of 20 years finally died...and I been nursing it along for 2 years prior! However, in August last year I gave in. This NEW washer was very 'loud' compared to the 'noises I was used to' from my 20 year old machine. The reviews I had read about this machine, did not make me feel much better. After using this machine for the past 7 months, I must say I am pleased. In fact, it dries the clothes so well, that they spend less time in the dryer. The shape of the tub seems to allow for more clothes and they are less crowded. I am not thrilled with the locking device, but I understand the reason and grudgingly live with it. Over all...this is a good machine for any couple who do no more than 2 large loads a week. I am not putting much stress on this washer. I doubt it will last half as long. If I get 10 years out of it...I will be THRILLED!
