Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. Top-Load Washer - Efficient and Thorough

This Kenmore high-efficiency washer 2510 is a laundry essential, helping you to get your family's clothes clean and ready to wear. It gets the job done efficiently, using 65% less water and 75% less energy than other machines. The Kenmore high-efficiency washer also includes the StainBoost option, which provides extended washing to remove tough stains from clothing. It has the capacity to wash a large load of towels, or even bulky comforters and pillows.

  • Combining wash basket motion, impeller rotation and a burst of concentrated detergent, the Triple Action® impeller deep cleans fabrics while using less water.
  • Stainboost™ extends wash time for a deeper soak, better cleaning penetration and more powerful stain removal while remaining gentle on fabrics.
  • 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.
  • Rapid spin speeds squeeze excess water from clothes, linens and more for faster, easier transfer to your dryer and shorter dry times.
  • Designed to help remove detergent build-up, cut down on odors and rinse away any left-over grime, the Clean Washer cycle provides essential maintenance for optimum performance.

Don't be afraid of an HE washer!
When I purchased my townhouse a year ago, I was thrilled to find that there was a washer and dryer in a laundry room on the first floor, a much more convenient location than the basement. It turned out to be a mixed blessing. The old Kenmore Series 70 washer was extremely noisy. When Sears had this model on sale, along with the bundled dryer, I couldn't resist. I was somewhat nervous about buying an HE washer. The published reviews on such machines are very mixed, to say the least. I downloaded the instruction manual and read it even before the machine was delivered. I was determined to do it right, in order to possibly avoid the problems others have reported with HE washers. I have only done three loads to this point but am very pleased. It is wonderfully quiet (particularly compared to my old washer). The laundry comes out clean. A full load on the Normal/Regular cycle took 45 minutes. I washed a queen size comforter on the "Bulky" cycle with an extra rinse. It took an hour and 20 minutes. The noises are different than a conventional washer. The different loading routine is somewhat difficult to get used to. I filled the machine with one load of clothes only to realize that I forgot to first pour the HE detergent in the bottom of the basket. Out the clothes came, in went the detergent, back in went the clothes. Don't be afraid of this HE washer! It's great!

Not Worth the Savings!
Bought this washer after my GE Front Loader died after 7yrs. I didn't want to spend almost $1000 on another front loader; I just wanted something that cleaned my family's clothes. I didn't mind a top loader as I use my mom's often and think it works fine. I wanted an HE washer that would save on water, but this has been a horrible purchase! I just received it today and have already arranged to exchange it. I don't mind spending another $220 for a front loader that I know will get my clothes clean! The agitator is small and doesn't move my clothes around at all. I kept pausing the wash to see what was going on inside and everything stayed exactly the same way as it was put in until the very end; It basically soaked in water, nothing more! We are a very active family - triathlons, mountain biking, bmx racing, etc.. - and need a washer that does more than soak our clothes! I could have filled the tub with water, put detergent in it, dropped my clothes inside and it would have been the same thing! My husband's clothes still had funky/sweaty body oder (underwear, socks, even under shirt sleeves...eeeww!). The tub is also very loose, causing it to swing around during the wash or spin cycles, and the wash is noisy! Spend a little more and avoid this washer, PLEASE! The ONLY way this washer will get clothes anywhere close to clean is if you keep the loads VERY small (tiny!), like near the tiny agitator, which in that case would make the rest of the 3.8 cu. ft. tub useless! We are a busy family of 4 (includes 2 very dirty males) who don't have time for tiny loads or stinky clothes! HORRIBLE!

Beats My LG HE Front Loader Hands Down!

About two months ago, I replaced the LG front load HE washing machine that came with my house. The LG was a high-end model with tons of features that I never used. I really disliked the front loader for many reasons, but mainly because I had to clean the door gasket after every load or risk my clothes smelling from mildew. I waited to write this review to see if the new machine started to smell of mildew, but it hasn't. I love my new Kenmore HE! Yes, it is freakishly loud, but that is the only drawback and is the reason I reduced my top rating by one star. Following the directions (pour in HE soap first, then load clothes around the impeller), my clothes come out much cleaner than with any other washing machine I've used. The clothes also finish relatively dry and, yes, somewhat wrinkled, but no more so than with other HE machines I have used. The cycle times are about the same as my old LG. If noise is not a problem for you (it wasn't for me--I read these reviews before I made my purchase and knew that this washer was considered loud) then I highly recommend the Kenmore 25102.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

great washer follow directions for clean clothes

I purchased this after having a kenmore for over 11 yrs that stopped spinning out the excess water and my dryer quit working. I was skeptical because of the negative reviews but decided to purchase this HE top loader instead of a front loader and the issues friends have been having with their front loaders. Most even said they would go back to a top loader. I am impressed with how clean the clothes are coming out and not as wet which takes less drying time. Read and follow the directions and your clothes will come out clean. I have 3 boys, one of which has a disability and Im doing 2 to 3 loads a day. I did have to go out and purchase the ball for my fabric softener but it was just over $2 so no big deal. The noises and clicks at first were weird but got used to them. I dont notice the noise on the spin cycle as its in the garage.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is a great washing machine

I've only used it for 3 loads so far but this is a fantastic washing machine - particularly compared to my much higher-priced Whirlpool which completely bit the dust after 7 years. I hope I continue to be happy with this unit and that I can buy more Kenmore products.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Really cleans!

I don't know what all the bad reviews are about. I am glad I didn't let them change my mind about this washer. It is wonderful! I didn't know what to expect from an HE washer, but liked the lack of an agitator and the idea of saving water. We have had the machine and matching dryer about six weeks now and have no complaints. Clothes come out much cleaner than with our old washer and seem to smell fresh longer. Yes, clothes wrinkle during the spin cycle but that is because this machine spins like crazy, which saves dry time. The dryer takes any wrinkles out anyhow. Washer does take a bit longer than our old one, but I feel it is because it really cleans well and also because the spin cycle is longer. With the shortened dry time, you make up for it. None of the residue problems others speak of. We use Tide liquid he detergent and Downey drop ball in every load. This washer isn't loud like others say either. Just sounds different. If you're on the fence, go for it. You won't be disappointed if you follow the directions, use the right detergent, etc.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Noisy

Machine washes clothes fine, but it makes a lot of noise while it is "sensing" the size of your load. Also, the cycle takes much longer to complete than my previous washer - not sure how that equals energy efficiency. On the plus side, it does have a large capacity

washer has ruined all my clothes

This washer has ruined all my clothes. The old Maytag I had washed them beautifully. This washer has stretched out all my tops across the shoulders so that the shoulder seams are halfway down my arms. None of my clothes fit me and I look like a hobo even though they came from expensive stores. I saw some review here that said if you put the clothes in the dryer they'll be fine. Well I don't put most of my clothes in the dryer. I hang them up or lay them out to dry, I never had to iron before--now everything needs to be ironed. I hate this washer. I don't even think I can sell it because who would want it?

better than expected

I bought this washer being a little scared of a new system I had never used. the washer works great. u can use about half the detergent that u usually use and clothes come out smelling better than ever.. also the washer spins clothes really dry so ur dryer also uses less energy. I would recommend this purchase. the washer makes different noises than a typical washer but u get use to the difference. the amount of clothes u can wash efficiently is awesome. the amount of money I will save on electric, water, and detergent should pay for the purchase in about 3 years

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent Combo Buy

I agree with the earlier post--read the washer instructions. I was a little concerned with all the negative comments. So I found the Whirlpool twin and the comments were considerably higher. We got the combo for my brother in law. We have a HE set already. Yes, HE machines behave differently, make noises during sensing, and use a lot less water. Pour the soap in the bottom..not on top of the clothes. And use liquid HE soap. OK, the Downy Softener ball is a bit hokey! And there is no buzzer when the load is finished. Expect the clothes with come out clean with a lot less water....which means they will dry quicker. And they are clean. No spindle means you can wash bigger loads with less soap and water. Seriously, the noises are minimal...part of HE normal behavior. Considering the cost and features, the value point on the model 25102 washer is excellent.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best HE Washer For The Money....Follow instructions!

This washer cleans very well but you must load it like the instructions say. Do note pile the clothes in the middle of the , put the soap in first and do not overload. Use HE soap and you will get great results from this machine. Our drying times and temps are lower, it senses and switches from one cycle to another much faster than most HE washers and the sale price of $399.00 was a steal. No brainer!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
