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?

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 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.
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 bought a Whirlpool HE top loader for my wife. She immediately complained about the very long cycle time but I wanted to get a washer that used less water and power. We took the Whirlpool back to the store (not Sears) we bought it from and got a refund. We looked at Sears online and "decided" on a Kenmore with an agitator until at the last second I saw the 25102 model for just $50.00 more. I like the stainless tub, extra (but not too much) capacity, and it said "faster" on the sticker. I looked it up on CR and it had no superiors in it's price range and all the more expensive ones had 75 to 90 min cycle times (a non starter). Sears delivered and hooked it up with no issues. I leveled the machine per instructions, read the operating instructions (not long or complicated) and followed them. The washer exceeded our expectations completely. The cycle times were very short, the clothes came out perfectly clean and so dry I only had to set the dryer for about 65% of the time we had to with the old Roper washer. The price was great, the performance is great and this machine is so efficient it will literally pay for itself if you do not yet own an HE washer and if your HE washer costed you $700.00 or more it probably won't. Read the instructions and follow them. This machine is a steal for $400.00!
DO NOT BUY THIS WASHER - Destroys my clothes - absolutely ruined my towels - and they are new. I need to buy all new towels. No matter which cycle I choose and amount of clothes I load..it wrings the heck out of them and frays them. Wish I went with Whirlpool...my previous washer which lasted 17 years!
This is the worst washing machine ever. Kenmore/Sears should be ashamed to sell a product so worthless. I have been satisfied with the numerous Kenmore appliances that I've owned over the years - definitely NOT this washer. Clothes come out looking dirtier than they did going into the wash. It's noisy but that's not an issue for me since it's downstairs in a laundry room. Already had service to check it out - nothing wrong - it's just a bad product. Saves water? Not so much when you have to wash a load three times to get the clothes clean. Wish I had read the reviews before I bought it. Don't waste your money. Time to try another brand. Done with Kenmore. So disappointed.
I went to Sears on Monday. I returned it on Friday. The machine leaked, was extremely loud, and shook horribly. I exchanged it for the same model thinking a had a faulty machine. The machine didn't leak this time but was still extremely loud and still shook horribly. I took it back on Sunday the same week and exchanged it for a GE washer. Do not buy this Kenmore model.
I bought this washer exactly 1 year ago today to replace another Kenmore (top loader old style agitator.). I waited a whole year to write my review in order to provide the most detail and honest opinion possible without bias from other reviews. First off, I selected this washer due to the relative simplicity of the controls. I did not want steam, nor a host of other wash and material selections. I wanted basic. Hot, warm, cold. Delicate, heavy duty, normal. This machine is probably the most basic HE machine I could find and I wanted the no agitator design. So, after a year of doing multiple loads every week, from sheets to throw rugs to delicate items (my wife's stuff) I have to say I am very pleased. Few things to note. Read the instructions carefully. The detergent (must be HE) goes in first then the clothes arranged carefully around the center spinner, as that is where the sensors are located. Don't overload . If using fabric softener, use the dispenser ball thingy. No, the machine does not have a separate softener dispenser, I did not care because most times when i use softener it winds up spotting my clothes. I have mixed loads, jeans and shirts, towels and clothes and I must say that this machine has cleaned without fail. Recommend using HE detergent and a boost pack. (I use Tide boost) with every load. Some things wrinkle due to the high speed spins, but the wrinkles have always come out in the dryer. I still have my old dryer and have found that with the new efficiency of the washer, dry times have decreased. I will also say my wife noticed a difference in the cleanliness of our clothes and towels. Noticable improvement. I am also pleased with the low water usage. Here in Southern California every drop counts and this washer has contributed a savings in water. Finally, one minor complaint. This machine makes funny noises, much different than the old style machine. But once I got used to it, I no longer care. All in all, exactly one year of service later, I am happy and pleased with my purchase and would recommend it, if you want simple, not too fancy, water savings, and don't mind a few odd noises. ps, it also qualified for a water rebate here in SoCal.
