Kenmore 3.4 cu. ft. Top-Load Washing Machine - Optimum Efficiency
Featuring a Dual Action Plus agitator and powerful spin cycles, the Kenmore 3.4 cu. ft. top-load washing machine 20022 offers energy efficient cleaning to save you money. The unique agitator works detergents deep into clothes using both sideways and clockwise motions, while the bleach dispenser delivers perfectly mixed concentrations to more effectively clean your clothes. The powerful 700 rpm spin cycle shortens the time required for drying, saving even more energy. With four load sizes, four water temperatures and eight cycle options, this Kenmore top-loading washing machine allows you to adjust for each individual load.
- The Dual Action® agitator moves both side-to-side and clockwise to double the cleaning power while still delivering gentle care for delicate fabrics.
- Multiple wash cycles give your hardy work clothes, delicate linens, and stained fabrics the treatment they need to look their best.
- A small footprint makes this washer an easy fit for apartments, basements and starter homes, while powerful performance delivers the same clean you’d expect from larger machines.
- Whether you’re washing wool, cotton or high-tech fabrics, a choice of four water temperatures makes it easy to customize your wash.
- Rapid spin speeds squeeze excess water from clothes, linens and more for faster, easier transfer to your dryer and shorter dry times.

If I could rate this washing machine zero stars, I would, because that is what it deserves. Buyers beware...DO NOT BUY it because you truly do get what you pay for. I purchased this machine about 14 months ago and it is already deceased, following numerous other problems it has had up until now. Problem # 1: Locking lid feature. I thought this feature was going to be tolerant, but the feature only worked sometimes. There were other times, it just didn't want to unlock and my clothes would be stuck unless I unplugged the machine completely. The only way to get the lid to unlock is to cancel the entire load and start over. So much for forgetting a sock or something you need to add last minute. You are screwed. Problem # 2: It took forever to fill up, at least 20 minutes. The entire load took over an hour and that is because this problem goes along with the next problem. Problem # 3: Using the Regular or Delicate cycle does not do a fill rinse and drain your clothes, it only spray rinses. I still had soap residue on my clothing after the cycle was complete, therefore, I had to use the Heavy Duty cycle, the only cycle that does have a fill rinse and drain option, but this option takes a lot longer to complete and is also very hard on my delicate clothing. Problem # 4: I believe the agitator stopped working because around a year of using this thing, my clothes started to seem like they were just not as clean as they should be. But do you think I could tell if the agitator stopped working? No, because the lid was locked! Problem #5: The sensor stopped working properly. When I would start a load of clothing, the sensor would only figure out if there were clothes present some of the time, other times I would have to keep pressing the cancel and reset button. Between the wash and rinse cycle, the washer would just stop by itself and I would also have to go press the reset button for it to rinse and drain. Finally, yesterday this washer wouldn't sense clothing at all and after unplugging it several times, it wouldn't start up. This is by far, the most frustrating washer I have ever owned or operated my entire life! The lower price is NOT worth all of this stress. And just an FYI... the clerk tried to tell us that all washers come with locking lids now, that is completely untrue.

Washer lasted about 2 years of use. Then it started overflowing on large setting. Leaks all the time, but sometimes it will simply overlfow 10 gallons into the garage. Its been worked on twice and each time it does it agian. It aslo ties up clothes around the agitator. It is noisey, however i could live iwth the noise if it simply didn't leak. I am replacing it with something and it will not be a kenmore.
I purchased this with its matching electric dryer. So far they are working great. I would recommend the higher capacity units. I think my old unit was a 3.7 or 4.0 but this was still a great price so I can deal with a few less shirts in my loads!
No matter how well-balanced you make the load, having 1 towel in there is enough to throw the thing off during a spin. Gather your towels to be washed in a small load by themselves. Plus, it's easy to cause these to overflow if you try to stop mid-cycle to change to a different cycle. Old washers didn't have that problem. We got ours from someone who'd used it less than 10 times. I'm thankful for a washer and happy when this works, but I'm glad we didn't spend money for it.

Very disappointed in this washer; takes a long time to wash a load of clothes (an hour or more for a small load!), and the spin cycle/drum broke after just 2 years doing 1 load of wash per week! Would not recommend; wish I had spent a little more and purchased a better washer.
If you need a disposable washer that will last for less than two years, this is the washer for you. If you value quality and durability, run, run, run from this Kenmore nightmare. If you love the sound of the drum slamming into the sides of the washer during the spin cycle, this is the washer for you. If quiet and tranquility appeal to you, run, run, run from this Kenmore nightmare. If you need help filling your recycle bin with plastic pieces that keep breaking off the washer and falling into the drum and onto the floor, this is the washer for you. If you don't need any help filling your recycle bin, run, run, run from this Kenmore nightmare. If you want a washer that will clean the floor in your laundry room when it leaks water, this is the washer for you. If you are in the habit of cleaning your own floors, run, run, run from this Kenmore nightmare. This washer is a piece of JUNK! Sears should hang their head in shame.

Bought for use in a vacation rental, sees alot of action by our cleaning crew and the renters. Fast and efficient, does a great job on the cleaning, easily compares to my LG front loading washer at home that costs 2-1/2 times as much.
