I purchased this product about two years ago, and the entire clutch assembly has worn out. The repair bill was about half the cost of the washer. You would expect for the core part of a washer to last much longer. Find another washer that is more durable unless you like wasting money.
I was looking for a dryer which received rave reviews. But I decided to purchase the W/D pair , without reviewing the washer feedback. I was very worried. I have had this for a few weeks now; it took a bit to figure out how to use it but I have none of the problems about load imbalance or anything like that. I was trained to separate clothes by weight, color and degree of soiling. If one follows those principles, you should never have a problem with the washer imbalance, and your clothes should last longer. So far, I love both the washer and the dryer.
Same problem as Oak6er and agree with everything said also agree with craigfish, I could take a crowbar to it, too. It is a piece of ****!!! UE and uE message. Will not drain. Can't wash a small load. Can't wash too large of a load. Have to adjust all the time and it seems to be getting worse. Called and wasted hours on phone, now have tech coming but I'm sure it's a waste. Wish I had machine that came with house 20 yrs old. This machine is soooo frustrating. My husband said not worth it, just get another..
Please do not purchase this washer. Bought mine a year ago and motor already stopped working. Sears nor kenmore would do anything about it. Save yourself the headache. Do not buy this awful product! Very disappointed.
Purchased this machine in 2011 & I wish I had read the reviews before we bought it! Like so many of others, we would experience the UL error periodically We'd have to open it up, re-distribute the clothes manually, and hold your breath hope it works when you turn it back on. Final straw came three weeks ago when it stopped draining completely and NOTHING we did would fix it. We had a repairman out to fix it and he suggested replacing the pump (which we did) and NOTHING -- still won't function properly. SO, here we are three years into, what I consider, a major purchase and we're already having to replace it completely. PLEASE save yourself the time, money and frustration -- AVOID this machine!!

I have had this washer for over a month now. I do add water to some loads to appease myself. My clothes smell so good and clean like never before. Very happy with my purchase!

I have had this washer for about 6 weeks now. I am delighted with it. I am doing half as many loads as I was with my old Kenmore Super Capacity. The tub is cavernous! My clothes come out clean, and I am very picky about laundry. It takes just under an hour to run most loads, which is longer than my old washer. However, the matching dryer finishes in half the time my old one did. That, coupled with doing fewer loads, has worked out great for me. I have had none of the problems others describe. I can't help but think that in many instances user error is involved. All products have lemons, so maybe the reviews are only being written by people with bad experiences. The Sears salesman told me that HE washers need service annually, and I've noticed that friends and family who have them experience that. So I bought the extended warranty. That's one of the things that keeps me going back to Sears! I also purchased this set on sale at my local Sears, and am very happy with the price I paid for these awesome machines. It is also very quiet. Our laundry room is on our main floor, and we could usually hear our old washer going through its cycles while we watched TV. Sometimes, I check on this one because I can't hear it even when the TV is off. If you are in the market for a top loading, HE washer, I recommend you at least consider this one!
