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.

I hate this washer
We've owned this washer two weeks, and it's the worst purchase we ever made. I'm totally familiar with the HE machines and their specific detergents, having owned a front loader for 13 years. This new machine does not get the clothes clean, unless the load is small. Wash times are too lengthy. I absolutely hate this washer and wish I could return it, and go back to the whirlpool Duet I had before. Calling the number in the user manual is no help; you get scripted dialog that they won't deviate from.

Overall excellent machine!

We are very happy with the purchase of our top loading high efficiency washer. We did have the room for front loading machines so we purchased this. So far very pleased with the look and performance!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Purchase

This is a great machine. There are several different options for the type of clothing you are washing. I read some reviews that complained of the noise or residue left on clothes, neither of which have I experienced. It is quieter than my old agitator washer and haven't had any issues with clothes not getting clean or the washer leaving a "film" on them. Great machine!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

don't waste your money

I really don't understand the 5 star reviews, this is of junk technology that doesn't work, the pseudo-agitator don't move the clothes inside the tube, all that this washer does is soak, the agitator do cycles but is so small and the amount of water so little there is not movement inside the tube, hence no washing happening inside, this is a waste of money.

Kenmore washer

I was not sure if I liked it when we got home . After using this washing machine a couple weeks now, I love it. Not to crazy about how long the cycles take but hope it really saves on energy and water. Time will tell.

I HATE THIS WASHER

iF YOU DONT HAVE THE CORRECT WEIGHT AROUND THE MIDDLE IT WILL SIT THERE AND BUZZ AND NOT FILL THE WASHER UP. iT TAKES FOREVER TO WASH ANYTHING AND LEAVES EVERYTHING IN A SMALL MASS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TUB.I NEED THE AGITATOR TO GUIDE THE CLOTHES INSTEAD OF LEAVING THE MIDDLE EXPOSED. MY DAUGHTER ALSO HATES THIS MACHINE. I WISH I COULD TRADE IT BACK FOR MY OLD BEAT UP WASHER THAT DID A BETTER JOB THAN THIS EXPENSIVE PIECE OF JUNK. IT TAKES TOO LONG TO SENSE AND WASH MY CLOTHES. SO MUCH FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY.

Highly recommended washer.

Wife loves this washer, uses very little water, cant hear it spin at all, very quiet while running, many many options to select clothing, water temp and agitating modes. Supposedly energy efficient but will know after six months of electrical usage analysis.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very Happy

This washer has been everything that was indicated. Love the top load so you can pause to add additional items rather then the limitations to a front loading machine. Large loads come out clean. This is a really nice machine for a family and we would highly recommend. No problems to date.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great size

This fit perfectly in the corner of our basement. It has great options, and is very efficient. Top loading is kid friendly and no bending required to load.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
