High efficiency, indeed...
Very nice washer! Our household is used to an old-school agitator washing machine, so we had to make some adjustments with our washing routine. The washer has a variety of settings depending on your wash and its very simple to use. My own complaint (a minor one) is that the wash itself takes a while. Our old washer took about a half hour for a full load, This washer takes an hour. But, my clothes came out clean and fairly dry, so it'd take about an hour or two in the sunshine to dry it out. That complaint isn't enough to knock a star off my rating. I really like the audio cue that plays when your wash is done. It's loud enough to hear a room or two over. Less water and less power consumption, a longer wash, but fantastic results. the trade-off is worth it. Very pleased with this purchase over all. Great choice if you're looking for a new washer, but don't want to break the bank.

Don't do it
Absolutely the worst machine ever. Goes out of balance if one sock is added. Very very noisy and sloooowww. Shredded one sheet already. When it spins, it twists any sock, strings into a nightmare with anything else. Jeans even when only washing with other jeans takes a couple of extra spins to ready them for the dryer. Tried to talk with "support".. "Sorry customer, that is the way the machine works." They told me to re-balance the load, yes I do that, every time I try to do laundry!! Several times a load. !! You won't believe how loud it is. Sears will not take it back and only a few weeks old. High efficiency, I believe in saving water and power, amen!! but the machine could be designed at half the water and do great. Kenmore and Sears really don't care about the reviews, I hope someone reads this.

Best washing machine EVER!!!!

I love this machine! It does absolutely everything it says it will. I noticed that some of the reviews say that it's noisy--it's not that noisy, but it is louder than the old-fashioned agitators. I'm good with it though--small price to pay for using so much less water and electricity (BTW, Europe has been using similar machines for decades.) I also noticed that some reviews complained that it beats up the fabric. I did two loads today--the first towels on hot and high and they came out cleaner than ever before with no damage. The spin cycle is so effective that the towels were almost dry when I removed them. They dried in record time! The second load was delicate shirts and T-shirts. Again, they came out so clean and nice and even though I used a gentler spin cycle (yes, you can set that!), they still dried in record time. When I took them out of the dryer, there wasn't a wrinkle to be seen. I haven't tried line drying yet so we'll see about that later. I suspect that many of the bad reviews might be due to people setting the machine up incorrectly (mine was done by the delivery person) and not reading the instructions before using it. For example, you have to use HE detergent. I'm finding that as long as you use the correct cycle for your loads and don't mix things like towels and delicates, this is a dream machine. I'm super happy with it and recommend it without hesitation.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Regret Buying this Machine

I had my other Kenmore washer and dryer since 1990. It still worked, but the clutch was getting alittle loud. Thought it was time to step up into the new HE washers.....DO NOT DO IT!!!! I would love to have my old agitator washer back!!! My clothes come out more wrinkled then they did with the agitator...I have had clothes come out with the laundry detergent streaked all over them, and that does not come out! I too paused my machine to add something, and there was absolutely no water in the machine at all, the clothes were wet, but that was all. And the noise it makes, unreal. The first night I had it,my family was here for supper and the washer was on. My daughter in law asked what all that noise was, I told her the washer, and she said you need to send that back, its broken!!! She has a front load HE washer that makes no noise...would I recommend this washer...NO WAY. Also, the hoops you have to jump through just to get on here to write a review is ridiculous....if I wanted to join all the ****, I would have when I purchased the washer and dyer. The dryer that matches this washer so far is ok.....

Got Water?

Well this washer doesn't. Bought because of the large tub. Little did I realize that HE means no water. Stopped a load to see that there was 3 inches of water for a regular size load. Have stopped other loads to see that the water was soaked up by the clothes so there was no visible water. I will never buy another HE washer, EVER. Then there's the issue of not your typical agitator. This new fangled agitator and agitation pretty much beats the you know what out of the clothes. If there's a tiny hole it will soon become a big hole. Have finally gotten use to noise of The Rocketship...Wish I had read these reviews before buying. Should have returned it. Now I just want to send it to the moon.

Stay away from this washer

The gearbox broke 3 months out of warranty. That means I paid $600 for a washer that barely lasted a little over a year. Now I have to pay another $200 to have this thing fixed. Last time I ever buy an appliance from sears. If I could give it no stars I would.

Almost didn't buy because of reviews but glad I didnt listen!

When I started researching this washer, i was very concerned about the reviews that I saw. However, I loved it! I know some have complained about the noise, however I had a front loader HE for the past 7 yrs and this machine is no more noisy then that. I just think if you've never had an HE then the noise is going to catch you off guard at first. As far as having to re-rinse clothes, Ive never had to do that. Just remember that HE means you dont need to use as much soap. Follow the instructions and you will be fine. I did see one review where clothes were torn and lint was left on clothes. I have not had this problem at all. In fact, I never realized how dingy my clothes use to be with my front loader until I did my first load with this one. I do have just one thing I dont like and thats the time. My front loader would wash a normal load in 30 mins, and this one takes at least 45mins but with that being said, my whites came out looking as white as they did when I first bought them. I love this washer and highly recommend!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

What a joke!

I don't know how anyone can clean their clothes in 3 inches of water unless you don't have much laundry or lots of time to wash 2 articles at a time! Couldn't stand it so much that I returned it!

Brutal on clothes --After one year, I'm buying new with agitator!

Despite ALWAYS having to use the 2nd rinse option to get the soap out, still stains don't come out. The washer with agitator from 14 years ago was so much better. There is something about this machine's not using much water and not having an agitator that is wreaking havoc on my clothes. Even sturdy pants are coming out of the washer with torn threads.

DON'T BUY! Ruins clothes!

What a nightmare! We've searched online about this washer and everyone seems to agree! Clothes are NOT clean after washing! We NEVER pack the basket and still there are clothes that don't get ANY water on them. Also, the insides have rusted already (owned for 1 1/2). Cannot get the rust out of our clothes! Also, whites are soooo dingy! Yuck. We are so disappointed. Love ALL our Sears appliances but this is a nightmare!

Junk

Save your money. My clothing never gets clean. Takes all day to do my bedding. Loud and long and very dissappointed. I have had this machine for 3 months. I bought warranty package. I have had it looked at and the person that came to check it out said its just not a good washer. Alot of calls on it.And Sears says thats too bad. Add extra rinse cycle for more water. Again...bad washer. Look further.

Only buy if you DO NOT want to do laundry!!!!!!!

Purchased this washer, had it delivered, they tested it before they left yaay! I was so excited and then silly me...I tried to do laundry in it! IT DID NOT WORK. I do have to say the sounds the buttons make is the only exciting thing about this machine!! I called to have it repaired (after having it for 1 day) and the very nice repair guy came and said we needed a new one. So I am thinking "Okay! can they deliver it tomorrow?" NOPE I now have to wait a week for a new washer!! A WEEK! called customer service and they told me that they only build-to-order! so even if I picked a new model I would still have to wait a week for a new washer. UNBELIEVABLE!! They repair guy even said that he gets TONS of calls about this washer. It is 2014! for **** sake! ...with all the progress....where's the progress!?....So if you would like a washer for your home that does not work by all means click BUY NOW!... But remember when it doesn't work sears does not reimburse you for the quarters you need for the laundromat!
