Three inches of foam insulation and a long-life baked enamel exterior finish contribute to the efficiency of the Kenmore 32144 40-gallon electric water heater. Designed for durability and efficiency, this Kenmore electric water heater has Super Lineguard™ elements for superior resistance to lime buildup, Everlast Pexan™ polymer dip tube, and a glass-lined steel electric water heater with two large anode rods for superior electric water heater protection.

A 40-gallon electric water heater is the minimum recommended size for a 2- to 3-person household with typical water use.

  • 3 inches of energy-efficient foam insulation (R value 24.0) prevents heat loss
  • The tank and parts have a 12-year limited warranty; labor has a 1-year warranty
  • Cobalt Blue Ultra Coat™ glass-lined tank with two large anodes maximizes tank life by protecting against corrosion
  • Super Lineguard™ element lasts longer and has superior resistance to lime buildup
  • RotoSwirl™ self-cleaning cold-water inlet tube swirls water to prolong tank life and maintain energy efficiency by discouraging lime buildup
  • Temperature and pressure (T&P) safety relief valve is factory installed
  • DualWatt™ lower element easily converts from 3800 watt to 5500 watt to accommodate different wiring

The Kenmore hot water heater (32144) is well worth the price.

This is my second water heater of this model. I live in an area with very hard water and water heaters typically only last about 5 years due to corrosion of the tank. The first water heater failed to heat the water after about 5 years due to my own error... One of the plumbing fittings above the heater leaked and messed up the thermostatic controls. I bought another to replace it since I figured the tank was probably about used up anyway. Out of curiosity, I cut up the old water heater tank for inspection. It was perfect, no deterioration at all. I expect the new water heater to last much longer if I can manage to keep my plumbing from leaking.

Energy efficient, easy to store, and no problems.

I purchased this Kenmore electric hot water heater 4 years ago and I've never had a problem with it to date.  The water is nice and hot when on demand and never fails to work.  Very energy efficient and I wrap insulation around it for our bitter cold North Dakota winters.  Kenmore is a trusted brand and I intend on purchasing a Kenmore propane hot water heater for our travel trailer.  Won't ever hesitate to  purchase the Kenmore brand.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent Product

We had a Bosch on demand hot water heater which we loved, until it stopped working.......couldn't not get a a repair who knew anything about it and the Bosch tech support wasn't great. So off to Sear we went. This 40 gallon unit works well for our family of five.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

kenmore 40 gal tall electic hot water heater is good

this is sears gone crazy giving a chance to WIN just click to spin but first you have to write a REVIEW of a product? What is our country coming to? How much does sears charge for delivery in your area? It cost me $100 for delivery of a $300 water heater, not to mention if they have to haul it away for you.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not worth your money!!

This water heater seemed to work excellent for almost 3 years. (August 07 - July 2010) It started to leak from the top inlet fitting and needed to be replaced. Rather then buy a quality brand, I called Sears because I have 9 years remaining on the warranty. They are charging me $75 to have someone come to my home and tell me that it can't be repaired (that's why I called them). Now they want to charge to install a new one and extra to haul the junk one away. If I did this to my customers my business would be out-of-business.

Lasted 4 years and offerd $80 to replace

I purchased a Power Miser 12 in February of 2004 and in May of 2008 it started to leak from under the top cover. I am being told by Sears in Nashua NH that I have to pay for a sersvice person to condemn the unit and that they would cover $80 to purchase a new unit and for a person to install a new unit.

The more money, the more disappointment.

It lasted thirteen months. Came home to find water everywhere; water pouring out through the top. Should have bought cheaper, wouldn't have been quite so disappointed.
