Kenmore 3.6 cu. ft. Top-Load Washer - Convenient and Efficient
This efficient Kenmore 3.6 cu. ft. top-load washer 2210 features an exclusive Triple Action agitator that provides motion in three directions. While the base moves back and forth, the post moves up and down and clockwise. This provides more cleaning action to ensure your laundry is washed perfectly. With an impressive 12 cycles, including Bulky, Delicates and Deep Wash, this machine allows you to choose the best cycle for each specific load. A second rinse option ensures any leftover residue is removed, and the 700 RPM spin cycle helps extract water from clothes. Get cleaner clothes using less water and less energy with this Kenmore top-load washer.
- Combining wash basket motion, impeller rotation and a burst of concentrated detergent, the Triple Action® impeller deep cleans fabrics while using less water.
- 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.
- Multiple wash cycles give your hardy work clothes, delicate linens, and stained fabrics the treatment they need to look their best.
- Rapid spin speeds squeeze excess water from clothes, linens and more for faster, easier transfer to your dryer and shorter dry times.

Bought this machine recently, have had it a week. Can't complain too much about anything EXCEPT there is absolutely NO WAY to soak anything! Didn't realize washers had changed so much - was replacing a 30+ year old mechanical Maytag which was still going strong but I had decided to replace all my appliances since none were younger than 25 years old. I soak stuff. Not every week, but often enough that I NEED that option. After delivery I realized that this machine, and after going back to the store, most all new machines, either have a limited, no option, soak cycle, or none at all. If you fill this machine with water, and pause the cycle to try to soak anything, no matter whether you leave the lid up or down, it empties after 10 minutes. Period. No go-around available. So I went back to the Sears Appliance store, sat with the saleswomen for almost 2 hours researching what machines had soak options. There is only one machine, can't remember what brand, that has a maximum 90-minute soak cycle, which is automatic. You can't shut the machine off overnight to give something a really good soaking. So folks, I went to another appliance store and purchased a Speed Queen. Consumer Reports gives the SQ a pretty negative rating, but all the consumer reviews lauded it. And it's mechanical, which means I can turn it on and off, mid-cycle, to soak whatever I want, for as long as I want, and there are no electronic boards to have to replace whenever one thing goes wrong. Negative comments on the SQ were noise, but I have to say, it probably isn't any noisier than this Kenmore while spinning. My family room backs up to the garage area where this machine is located, and it was pretty loud. I wouldn't want this Kenmore inside the house near an entertainment area! Anyway, it's going back. Good machine if you don't mind that there is no way to soak anything.
I knew I wanted a Kenmore because my other appliances, dishwasher and range are Kenmore and I like them. It is fast, efficient and for the most part quiet. In fact much quieter than the Maytag I had before it. I had purchased a Maytag not knowing they do not make their own products anymore. Poor choice. I am very happy with this Kenmore washer and recommend it.

I recently purchased this washer to replace my old washer that would constantly go off balance. I specifically purchased the Top Load style and not an HE washer because I have heard and read many bad reviews about how HE washers do not clean clothes as well. I liked the option to be able to control water depth and temperature. Boy was I surprised when I started to wash my first load. The water fills extremely slow and literally rattles the pipes as it alternates between HOT and COLD. Although I had set the temperature to COLD, I noticed steam coming from the washer lid. I opened the lid and put my hand under the incoming water. It was completely HOT and I almost scalded my hand. I immediately thought there was something defective with the item. I contacted Sears Expert Advice and they asked if I had the hoses connected to the proper sources and then told me that the washer was "working as designed". Even though COLD is selected, the washer will add HOT water to get the water temperature up to 60 degrees. They said this feature was because detergent works better above 60 degrees. Since when? Why in the world would Kenmore make a washer that says you are washing in COLD and adds HOT water to the tub? I've ruined several pairs of expensive jeans and UnderArmor shirts because I was expecting COLD to be COLD! And to boot, the item is "Not" returnable! In my 60 years, I've never had an issue with detergent not working at temps below 60 degrees, that is absurd! What in the world possessed Kenmore to make such a ridiculous option? You can not let this washer fill with water before adding clothes or the machine will overflow. Who in the right mind would pour scalding HOT water on delicate clothes that are meant to be washed in COLD ONLY? I'm writing this review in hopes of saving someone else the heartache of ruining clothes! Nowhere in any of the published information does it state that the machine will add HOT water even when you have COLD temperature selected. Do they really want you to wash COLD only clothes in the Summer when the COLD tap water is above 60 degrees? I am completely disappointed that this was not explained to me properly when I purchased this washer.
Brand new out of the box - will not fill past 7 1/2 inches no matter if set on Deep Fill or Extra Small. Temp is also one temp COLD, no matter if set on hot, warm, cool or cold - they are ALL the same. VERY DISAPPOINTED. Sears Repairman to come tomorrow - to work on BRAND NEW right out of the box washer. Have had to take off work twice for this unfunctional machine.
We had a Kenmore washer for 23 years; it finally was off balance. Purchased this one and in first 3 tries, there was a sound like off balance as it started to spin. Sears sent repair man who explained that it is because of on 2nd floor of old house and it is trying to balance. No repair needed. Much relief. I am very satisfied with the machine. I wish it showed more about how to load it with suggested mix of clothes.
I would agree with the other comments above that it cleans great, however one load takes nearly an hour to complete. That is good if you only have one load to wash as a single person, but way too long for a family that has multiple loads to wash. Be prepared to have clean clothes, but you will take all day for several loads to complete.
It has been about 3 weeks clothes are spotless, brighter, and cleaner. This washer is very easy to use. Once you get use to the machine going through the sensing actions.When the clothes come out they are barely damp ( Easier on the dryer). The only thing you have to remember is looking for the HE on the detergent label most of them now are that way.We could not be any happier with this purchase.

after 2 years we dumped a hi efficiency GE washer. It didn't clean the clothes. Back to the old fashioned way-using water. Works great,gets the clothes cleaned.Plenty of cycles and water levels for anything. Dear Sears, keep making this machine.
