Product Description

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

The Kenmore® 28103 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 stainless 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.

  • Cleans 20 towels at once††
  • Speed Wash cycle is ideal when you need clean clothes in a hurry
  • Stainless-steel wash basket is durable, and its smooth surface resists scratches and helps prevent fabrics from snagging
  • StainBoost™ option provides an extended wash time to give you extra power to clean stubborn messes while taking gentle care of clothes
  • Deep Wash cycle controls the washer’s water level, filling your washer with more water
  • 2nd Rinse option effectively removes leftover detergent and bleach residue
  • Clean Washer cycle can help eliminate odors and keep the interior of your washer clean
  • Delicates cycle provides slow agitation for fabrics that need gentle care
  • 1,100 RPM spin speed helps extract extra water from clothes and shortens the time clothes need to spend in the dryer
  • Cycle status lights provide feedback so you know when your cleaning cycle is complete

FANTASTIC machine!
I'm not big on the whole high efficiency thing and this machine lets me opt out of it if I want. Lets face it, how often do you really use a cycle other than the Normal cycle? For me, it's almost never. I might use Delicate once in a blue moon, I may even use Express on this washer, but otherwise, I use Normal. This machine essentially has 2 Normal cycles: Normal and Deep Wash. Normal is the new high efficiency way of washing, it uses a lot less water than my old topload agitator machine which is green or whatever. I can try it if I want to. Then there's Deep Wash which makes the machine behave almost exactly like my old low efficiency agitator machine. This washer uses the same amount of water on Deep Wash I would have set on my old machine and gives BETTER performance thanks to the recirculating concentrated detergent spray thing it does at the beginning of the wash. The only downside is that it takes a little longer to complete the cycle. Not to worry though since it also holds a lot more laundry than my old machine and spins everything sooo much faster that my dryer takes less time even with a larger load!

Unreliable and high maintenance costs
In the past 6 years we have spent nearly as much on maintenance as it cost for the original purchase price. Don't buy if you're looking for a maintenance free washer. Our maintenance man recommended LG.
