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 will not ever get another kenmore product again from Sears! Washer shakes very bad,had 4 service calls on the same problem, And have spent at least 6 hours of my life on the phone dealing with unhelpful people that wants you to call a different number and give you the run around.
So excited to purchase a new washer from Sears. When I used it the first time it made a loud thumping noise each time water ran into machine that I could hear throughout the house. I called Sears service. Repair man said this was normal. We would need to call a plumber to try to adjust water pressure. Looked it up on line problem is called water hammer and it can lead to damaged pipes. I feel sales people should be aware of this issue and give information to customers. I would never have spent the money on this machine. Hope to return it or it will be the last product I ever buy from Sears. If I could give it a rating lower than one I would. I have never written a review before and have never been so appalled by the quality of a product.
Despite carefully investigating the measurements and adding this 4.3 cu. ft. product to my shopping cart, an order for a 5.2 cu. ft. product was processed and delivered. If you decide to order online, be sure to examine your emailed receipt carefully. You may not have ended up with the item you initially selected. I am extremely disappointed that, even though the error was caught before the product was taken off the truck and the item is in stock locally, it will take 2-4 days to resolve the issue via a replacement order.
Bought this, model 796.4157, in Dec. 2012. Replaced in January. Initial tech said nothing wrong though first had no working lights (least of my worries.) I believe there is a serious design flaw in both washer and matching dryer. After washing a load, at least 1/3 cup of water on gasket when open the door. In soap dispenser, so much water is left that the whole unit has to be removed and water poured out. Then have to dry tunnel and each dispenser dried after which I leave everything open. Thank goodness we have no small children at home! Takes 15-20 minutes to dry everything. Matching dryer is worse! Told "best they make." If so, Kenmore Elite is in trouble. I own this product. I am not affiliated with Sears, though in the past, I've recommended them to everyone as believed Kenmore Elite the best of the best. No more!

Love the capacity. This is our first front load washer and we are excited about the water / energy savings as well as the capacity. The high spin speed gets so much water out of the clothes that it's no surprise that the dryer doesn't need to spend much time drying them! Excited to try out more of the different wash cycles.
