this is the worst appliance I have ever had in my life. I was shocked to see that they are still selling this washing machine. this machine has a mind of it own. sometimes it would work & some times it would not. I could never count on it. I always tried to stay on top of my laundry because I would not know when this would be the last load of clothes it would wash. I had so many problems with this machine that I don't have time to list all of them If I can save one person from wasting their hard earned money on this washing machine then this review will be worth the time I took to write it. My washing machine was put out with the trash last week. I love my new washing machine even though I hate having to spend more money on a new machine but I am so glad I didn't sink more money in this product.
I purchased this machine a year ago and was disappointed from day1. First off this machine DOES NOT have a fabric softener dispenser. Who makes machines without this much needed feature especially since they do not sell Downey Balls anymore. Next this crazy lid lock feature. It does not unlock right away when u have 2 add fabric softener. Now due 2 this digital feature **** my machine has been "sensing" for the past few days. Meaning I cannot wash at all.. Even when unplugged as soon as its plugged back in its sensing. This is one of my worst purchases ever!
Sears should be embarrassed to sell this piece of ****. This machine does not have fabric softener dispenser(didn't know they even sell washers without dispenser), its extremely loud and takes for ever to unlock the machine to add softener. VERY VERY disappointed. Started saving today to replace as soon as possible
After reading all the reviews. I was dreading replacing my 18 year old washer. It was nothing fancy so I wasn't looking forward to the changes a new one was going to bring. Went to the local sears and looked at the ones in my price range. the agitators went up and down side to side etc. to me that's just something more to go wrong. I just wanted a plain old washer that would clean my clothes. We went with this one. first problem was the drain hose wouldn't stay on. wasn't long enough to reach the drain. (easy fix just used our old hose.. it was a better rubber hose instead of the plastic one that came with the washer.) The noise it makes is different than the old one. But not any louder. My washer is in my kitchen. the noise doesn't interfere with anything. My only question and Im hoping someone can answer it, is.. How is the agitator suppose to work? the bottom part spins with the basket and the top does the agitation. when I spin it manually. I would honestly recommend this washer, it hasn't given us any trouble at all.
We have always owned Kenmore appliances and loved them. The last washer lasted 17 years so when we needed a new one we only wanted a Kenmore. We did purchase the least expensive on but I really hate it. I don't know why they put that sensor board in it. It you put it on the wrong load you have to cancel and wait about 5 minutes to try again. It is so aggravating. And alot of times when you hit the button to pause so you can open the lid (it locks) it cancels out. I have never been more disappointed in an appliance in my life. I would advise anyone against buying this product.
Our last washing machine (likely a Kenmore) lasted thirty years. It didn't die, we bought a new house and gave it up for a shiny new pair of Kenmore appliances including this model. I wish we had not let go of that old machine, because the new one, just a couple months over two years old has become unusable. I should have realized we were making a mistake when the salesperson said, "I wouldn't expect to get thirty years our of these 'modern' appliances." One day recently I noticed pieces of plastic in the drum. Then a wash or two later the drum began banging violently every load and even dropped off the suspension in one corner. I was able to rehang it, and it fell off another corners suspension. Each load becomes horribly unbalanced and a traumatic experience for everyone in the house. I am so disappointed in what Kenmore appliances have become. What happened to Kenmore quality?
This is the worst washer I have ever owned. While it cleans ok, I am always frustrated with the LOCKING LID. I was told by rep to hit the pause button to unlock the lid at any time - does NOT work. I have to stand next to washer and guess which click I hear that will allow me to open lid to add fabric softener. I have even had to re-rinse load to get softener in. Was told by rep lid lock can't be disengaged or washer won't work. Of course by the time this was figured out, washer cannot be returned (past 30 day period). What a complete waste of money. I would not recommend this washer to anyone!
...the locking lid is a pain...it's a noisy machine, sounds like a jet engine taking off when balancing...long wash cycles even on 'regular' cycle. But...the spin cycle is AWESOME!!! Takes less time to dry the clothes and towes. I like the 2nd rinse cycle for xtra dirty clothes. Large tub can handle bed spead/quilt easily.
