Product Description

No one in its class performs better* and no one in its class cleans better.**

The Kenmore® 28102 washer is now bigger.*** It also features the high-performing Triple Action® impeller to provide a deep clean, 3-part wash motion while using less water. This triple action system includes a wash basket motion, an impeller action and a burst of concentrated detergent pumped through the wash plate.

The white Kenmore 2810 washing machine uses 63% less water and 73% less energy for over $175 per year in total savings.† It also makes it easier than ever to get whiter whites, thanks to the Timed Oxi™ dispenser. Just press a button, and your oxi additives are released into the wash at the right time to help boost cleaning power. Set-in stains are no match for the Soak cycle that helps eliminate tough stains from clothing. The PreWash option also lets you customize your wash to clean organic stains like berries, wine or extra-dirty loads.

  • 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.
  • The timed Oxi-Option™ is designed to automatically add powdered oxygen cleaners at just the right moment in your washer’s cycle for deeper cleaning and brighter whites.
  • Designed to effectively clean up to 20 towels at once, this 4.5 cu. ft. capacity washer gets more clean in fewer loads.
  • Rapid basin rotation uses centrifugal force to remove excess moisture from fabrics quickly, reduce dry times and ease transfer from washer to dryer.
*Among leading brand top load washers with washplate systems greater than 4.0 cu.ft. and less than 4.7 cu. ft .as measured by DOE standards, based on an analysis of 4 criteria: AHAM cleaning score for an 8 lb load, DOE EnergyGuide in kWh/yr, average cycle times for an AHAM 8lb Normal cycle cleaning test, and machine capacity of declared DOE capacity value; total matrix score based on utility score weighting.

**Among leading brand top load high efficiency washers with washplates greater than 4.0 cu. ft. and less than 4.7 cu. ft. as measured by DOE standards, based on an 8 lb load.

***As compared to Kenmore model 28002.

†Compared to a deep fill top load washer manufactured before 2004, using the normal cycle. Average use, 11 year life and 10 loads per week.

New Replacement
I recently replaced (3 weeks ago) an 8 year old Kenmore Elite set with this newer Kenmore set. I was skeptical about getting the new Kenmore Elite units as they are not made by Whirlpool as this Kenmore Washer is. We are very familiar with the HE machines and how to properly load the machines so as not to make the machine off balance. A lot of the reviews written about HE sets are from users who are moving from agitator machines to the newer technology. This machine washes well, clothes come as clean as our previous set. You have to remember to select the fabric softener option or the product will spill into the wash basket and leave residue at the end of the cycle. Our previous machine always assumed any product was used and would run water through all the dispensers. (Whirlpool should go back to this). There are plenty enough cycle choices to suit anyone?s needs. The machine is super quiet and only makes noises that a direct drive machine would be expected to (no belt). The only noticeable difference we see is that the machine is hard on towels for some reason. It will unravel the fabric on older wash clothes & towels. So to combat this we run a gentle cycle and reduce the wash time and run a low spin. As a comparison our older Calypso washer which was an absolute joy for us, was much gentler on our clothes and in my opinion the Calypso wash motion was better technology. I recommend getting a protection plan through whomever, I am sure you will need it at some point in time. The machine uses what appears to be a small amount of water, but in fact, recycles the water that an agitator machine would simply keep in the tub as it washes, so the clothes are in fact thoroughly wet and drenched in water. Overall this is a good machine, and I would recommend it! However read the manual and do exactly as it says and the machine will do its job.

Possibly bad design-"Ld" error code common search on Kenmore support site
With my brand new machine, most loads of laundry "crash" -- i.e., the washer won't drain. It stops, displays "Ld," beeps incessantly, and locks all the controls. The installation was okay, I didn't have too much soap, and nothing is jammed, so Sears technical support suggested a reboot: unplug, wait a full 30 seconds, and plug it back in. Yes, that stops the beeping and un-freezes the controls. But it doesn't always get the washer going again. I restart the cycle at "rinse and spin", the machine is quiet for a while, then "Ld" and beeping restarts. Almost every time, I have had to remove all the laundry, let the washer rinse & spin empty, then wring out the laundry by hand, return it to the washer and run rinse & spin. Needless to say I'll be calling Sears again tomorrow. Perhaps I just received a lemon, but I thought I'd get the review out in time for the Black Friday week sales. If the electronics are this sensitive, I think I'd rather have an old fashioned mechanical washer and do difficult things like turning the dial to pick temperature and water level. Also, this could possibly be a common problem: If you search the Kenmore technical support site (managemylife.com), you will see lots of queries about Kenmore washers with similar "Ld" code problems. Oh, and I just managed to finish my first load of whites, and several of them have a greyish hue. Don't know if it's the washer or the detergent. Another mom at school recently mentioned getting greyish whites with a particular washer (don't know the model), so I thought I'd mention it as a possible problem. This review is of the Kenmore top-loading high efficiency low-water washer, model 110.2810, w/n W10550314A, newly released in stores (I think) in November 2013.

great washer for a BIG family!

I got this washer after my other one died mind wash (YIKES! water everywhere!) It was a quick purchase to replace my old one. Boy do I love this machine! It took awhile to get use to it but it CLEANS the clothes thoroughly. We are a active family of 6 and I use this washer at least once if not twice a day. It is quiet and efficient and when I bought it, it was on SALE! BONUS! :)

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Average washer

We have had this washer for a year now. It work ok, i still think an agitator is better at cleaning the clothes. The washer takes longer to finish, not sure how this makes for energy efficiency.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

kenmore washer & dryer

Im very pleased with my new Kenmore washer and dryer. The electronically designed combo was frightening to me at first but I adjusted immmediately. Everything you need to do is at your finger tips. Thedenmore washer and dryer performance is absolutely excellent...clothes come out clean and fresh just the way I like them. The water level adjusts to the clothes level...how great is that? The dryer is a high performer...I love it. Clothes and house hold items such as towels and sheets are always fully dry.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
