Kenmore Elite 4.3 cu. ft. Front-Load Washer - Wash Faster
The Kenmore Elite front-load washer 4157 uses Smart Motion Technology to cut down wash time by 35%. This unit carefully and efficiently cleans any type of fabric at speeds you've never imagined. Because this is a Kenmore washer, it comes with the exclusive Workout Wear and Kids Wear wash cycles. There's also a Kenmore Connect troubleshooting service that solves any problems you may have over the phone. The Kenmore Elite steam washer makes laundry a quick, easy task so you can spend more time enjoying your day.
- Active Spray™ uses dual nozzles to recirculate detergent and water throughout the wash cycle, for a deeper soak, better cleaning penetration and fresher clothes in less time.
- SteamTreat virtually eliminates the need to pre-treat fabric while it tackles common tough, set-in messes with the deep cleaning power of steam.
- Active Rinse™ uses pressurized water injection and rapid rotation to send clean water deep into fabrics, so dirt, odors and leftover detergents are rinsed away fast.
- Boosting wash speeds by up to 35%, Accela-Wash™ combines the continuous soaking of Active Spray™ with the water injection of Active Rinse™ to clean more laundry in less time.
- Medium capacity makes this washer versatile while allowing it to deliver the gentle or deep-down clean your fabrics need.
- Kenmore Connect™ quickly sends diagnostic information over the phone for faster trouble-shooting, quicker repairs and fewer service calls.

I owned a Kenmore front loader for 10 year, then the plastic holding the barrel finally gave out. I decided to purchase this one, big mistake. Within 2 weeks I had it replaced due to leaking. Then the replacement started leaking. After 2 months more leaking and more service calls, but they never found the leak. Frustrating and very inconvenient, but since I had owned it for 30 days I had to wait for the lemon law. The lemon law kicked in today and Sears is going to replace it!!! Finally!! Now I just have to pick a replacement, wish me luck!!
Old Kenmore washer gave up after 11 years, so we purchased this one as a replacement. It is faster and cleans a little better than the old one. It uses less water and less detergent than the old machine and is quiet. Regarding negative reviews about the filter screen, I view it as a positive. It is easily accessible on the front of the machine and takes a few seconds. Old machine would have required some disassembly to reach, and our last machine had one service call because the filter was clogged. We love our new machine.

Had done research before buying and made sure to ask salesman if what I read about having to drain some of the washers was true and he convinced me this wasn't the case with this washer. Well you have to get on the floor and open this small tube next to the filter to drain every few washes! Is this going back in time or what!! This is 2013 not 1940 when you had to remove a water pan from under the "Ice Box" I am so devestated after all this money. Probably will return.
I purchased this unit to replace a horrible Kenmore Elite He4t washer. (*Had the He4t & almost every single part;board, tub, door lock, gaskets, belts replaced under warranty, still it only lasted 2 years out of warranty; Outer tub seal and bearing was the final problem*) This unit is fantastic; our clothes physically feel and look better! Although special treatment is still needed for greasy stains, overall cleaning of the clothes is outstanding. No need for extra rinsing that I would need to do with my old HE washer. The drying time was cut in half! Huge capacity, King comforter! All the features are useful & helpful, the Accela wash, Steam, extra rinse cycles, load measuring, sanitize and the stay fresh fan, this washer really does it all and well. After thorough research, going everywhere & reading the reviews, you'll find out this unit is designed/built by LG and then improved in many areas to Kenmore's specs. This same unit is also re-branded by Samsung and others! Luv it!
I purchased this Kenmore Elite Washer and Dryer combination 3 months ago. I am very happy with my decision on this set. I read many reviews and exhausted all options when it came to deciding on what new washer and dryer to buy. Pushing me over the edge to buy the Kenmore was good reviews and this set is one of the top rated washer and dryer sets in Consumer Reports 2012. In addition (this is shallow) but I liked the look of the square doors over the round ones. Things I like: - It spins quietly - Clothes come out very dry - Short Cycle Times (the regular cycle is only 41 Minutes!) - You can pause and open the washer during almost anytime in the cycle (not all front loaders can do this) - Good price, I got mine on sale and during a Friends and Family Event for an extra 10% off. - Steam Functionality is great for getting out stains - Large Capacity Things I don't like - Nothing yet, just hoping they last a long time without problems.
