Three inches of foam insulation and a long-life baked enamel exterior finish contribute to the efficiency of the Kenmore 32154 55-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 55-gallon electric water heater is the minimum recommended size for a 3- to 4-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

Easy install, so far working well
Purchased to replace the broken one that we knew was going to need to be replaced soon. It's very easy to install and the performance has been great. We are family of 5, and it has had no problem keeping up with our water demands. Satisfied with our purchase so far. Looking forward to next utility bill to see how it compared to our old one on energy consumption.

Poorest equipment ever

I installed this heater in 2007. I purchased it because of the 12 year warrenty. I have had to replace it twice already due to the tank leaking. It is now leaking again. I have not had one last up to two years. Then Sears policy is they will not replace it until checked by a service person because I obviosley am not smart enough to tell that my basement is flooding due to a faulty water heater. When I called about this situation Sears told me a service person is not available for 8 (eight) days. Sears has lost a good long term customer.

12 year Electric Water Heater

Great price on this 12 year electric water heater. Very happy with the price I got it for plus with my Shop Your Way Reward Program I earned points for purchasing at Sears. Water heater replaced a previous 12 year water heater that I also purchased at Sears. I am very pleased and would recommend the Kenmore 12 Year Electric Water Heater. It was more of a value then the 6 or 9 year water heaters.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Don't waste your time. Poor Quality

I had this unit in my house for a little over 2 years. Sears serviced the thermostats and the tank started leaking 8 days later.When we contacted Sears for service under the protection agreement we were given nothing but a runaround. It's been 4 days and we still have no hot water. We may have a new water heater tomorrow or maybe the next day. Sears communication and customer service is poor at the best.

happy customer

Bought this water heater 5 years and 3 months ago , has worked flawlessly up to now . Tank started leaking . Called sears , repair man came looked it over and warranted it for us . If you let sears install it they will put the 79 dollar service charge toward the installation . Ours is very simple install so we did it ourself . Very happy with the warranty service we received .

Awesome Kenmore 55 gallon Tall Water Heater

We had previously owned a short Kenmore water heater that lasted us more that 10 years, but unfortunately it broke down last month. Since we think it's an excellent brand, we couldn't have changed it for another one.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore 55 gallon Tall 12-year Electric Water Heater

I installed it myself using flex hoses and the push on O-ring brass connectors for my water lines. No problems and is working fine. Adjustments are easy to make and its well insulated too.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
