Built for those with lots of laundry, the large capacity Kenmore Elite 5.2 cu. ft. front-load washer 4107 has 14 separate wash cycles. Never pre-treat stains again: there's a steam cycle built right into the washer, as well as a second rinse on the Kids Wear setting. The NSF-certified sanitize setting kills germs without harsh chemicals, eliminating 99.9% of bacteria. An automatic Smart Motion tumble feature prevents mildew and odors from gaining a foothold if you forget to remove a load. Keep your clothes looking, feeling and smelling their best with this Kenmore Elite front-load washer.

  • With Smart Motion Technology, the Direct Drive Motor blends up to six different wash motions, providing customized care for each type of fabric so clothes get totally clean.
  • SteamTreat virtually eliminates the need to pre-treat fabric while it tackles common tough, set-in messes with the deep cleaning power of steam.
  • From work clothes to cloth diapers, NSF certified Sanitize Cycle raises temperatures to quickly kill 99.9% of certain bacteria without using harsh chemicals like bleach.
  • Designed to scrub out grass stains and clean messes, the Kids Wear Cycle gets tough dirt out, while the 2nd Rinse feature makes clothes comfortable on the most sensitive skin.
  • Multiple wash cycles give your hardy work clothes, delicate linens, and stained fabrics the treatment they need to look their best.
  • A huge interior delivers plenty of space for towels, blankets, comforters and more, to help you get more clean in fewer loads.

Pleased with the size and options to enhance cycles
I've had the washer less than a week and am pleased with it. Read the instruction booklet on how to load it and instructions on HE detergent. Follow the directions and use common sense. It holds a lot of clothes -- I dry them in 2 -3 batches. There are a number of cycles for a super quick wash cycle to a very long sanitizing wash cycle. My favorite features are the various cycles and the extra options, especially the extra rinse feature. I'm very pleased with the large loads that it will hold. I purposely filled one load with towels and filled another with blankets. Both loads stopped and gave an error code on day 4 that the loads were unbalanced. Restarted machine and got the error code again. Then, took a few items out of each load, and it ran great! It holds a lot, but you have to use some common sense and not fill washer to the brim, especially with heavy items (like my towels and blankets!). These were huge loads, so I was at fault for overloading it (but I did want to see how much I would be able to wash) If you overload it, the clothes may be quite wet if you have to remove any. This is not a problem with the washing machine, I simply overloaded it I agree that some settings, such as steam, can take a long time. That's to be expected when you have an appliance perform an additional task, such as steaming the clothes. There are still the options for shorter cycles. Don't choose steam if you don't have time for it. My last Kenmore HE3 lasted just over 7 years with no issues other than the warm rinse stopped working on some cycles just after warranty expired. The old washer probably would have lasted longer than 7 years if the repairman had known more than to just read an error code and start replacing parts - one part at the time!

Don't Waste Your Money...
I purchased this washing machine after being diligent and doing my homework. It had good ratings and only one negative review. Well here's it the 2nd negative review. After only 1 1/2 days I had to empty the drain due to water standing in the tub. I put my king comforter in it on Saturday morning ran errands and came home to a soaking wet comforter, 3 spin cycles later I could finally put it in the dryer. My previous Kenmore Elite was in great condition for being 10 years old, it only needed a new seal/bearings. But they quit selling those parts, the cost to fix should have been $30/$60, but now you have to buy the seal/bearings and tub for between $400/$500 that's if you do it yourself. over $1000 if you have Sears repair. Why, because they found a way to force you to buy a new machine. I was extremely excited and thought this will be energy efficient and cost less to run. Well tonight after returning home I was met with water on the floor of the laundry room, I only had 6 towels in the washer and it was flashing UA, uneven load then I drained 14 cups of water. Seriously, this is a $1700 machine and it has this many issues. I've owned it for 6 days and used it for 2 1/2. I don't recommend this for anyone. And even after draining it there is already an odor. Could I possible have a lemon? Yes, but for that cost it shouldn't be. People are not aware that LG is the manufacturer of Kenmore Elite and Maytag bought out Kenmore and Whirlpool. I am definitely looking for a machine that doesn't have a drain . Buyer beware. Total disappointment, especially since this is the top of the line for Kenmore Elite.

Elite waste of money

Had this machine for two months now and every time I try to wash a comforter or bath room mats it does not spin the water out, Sears serviceman has been out twice and the problem still has not been resolved. Machine has a comforter setting and it can not wash a comforter according to the serviceman. Maybe I got a lemon, will not give up until this machine is repaired right or replaced, just very frustrating.

Do not purchase if you plan on doing large loads

Purchased this washer in May 12014 based on its Huge capacity,but every time I try to wash a comforter or more than 6 towels it does not spin, it just goes back and forth trying to balance the load. This is what the Sear Technician said " customer wants to wash mats and comforters,this machine can't do this,the manufacture says it can,but it's not true" Sears is sending another tech today for a second opinion, I will keep you posted. I expected more from a $1300.00 machine!

Measure carefully!!!!!! But pretty amazing.

This arrived today and I was so excited, however it will not fit through my standard 29" door. It is just wider than the door frame. We had to remove the door frame to get it in. I bought it to replace a 29" washer so you would think it would fit but you really need a 30" doorway. The washer door is NOT reversible. UPDATE: At first I loved this machine. Huge capacity, lots of options, energy and water savings. However, now after 5 months I am not as happy. I am having huge issues with normal dirt/stains not coming out despite using the name brand detergent, pretreating, color safe bleach, and using the kids wear or whitest white settings. I have tried adding the prewash and extra rinse without success. I love everything else about this machine but the fact that this machine does not clean better than my prior top loader is a disappointment. This machine does require frequent maintenance (cleaning cycle, cleaning the pump and filter) to keep there from being an odor.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Just got it, love it!

There were no issues getting the washer and matching dryer into my laundry room. Set up was quick. I noticed a chemical smell in the washer, ran Tide cleaner through it and the smell is gone. It is so incredibly quiet and absolutely no vibration. I'm not sure about the noise problems others had, this one is whisper quiet.

Expected more...

Ive had this washer for about 3 months now and overall, its okay, but for $1600, it should be better than okay. Issue # 1 - its loud upon filling up. As one other reviewer mentioned, it sounds like someone is hitting the machine. Loud clunks you can hear three levels up! Issue # 2 - my wife has very thick hair, which gets EVERYWHERE, but Ive never had a problem with it in the washing machine until now. Every load I pull clumps of wet hair out of the washer, it doesnt drain with everything like the last machine I had. Issue # 3 - If you close the door after removing a finished load, the next time you use it, it will smell awful. Customer service recommended leaving the door open between washes to let it air out. Gee thanks, Einstein. Overall, it washes clothes, it has a large capacity and it hasnt flooded the laundry room, so in the grand scheme, maybe I am just being picky, but Ive never had these issues before with mid-grade washers, so I would have expected better performance from the higher end product. I did buy the matching dryer though, and thats been great!

I CANNOT say all I want to say about this washer/dryer bundle. I have been agitated about the agitators, twisted and confused about the fancy features of the new washers. This bundle is FANTASTIC !! i literally washed my clothes twice because I thought the i forgot to start it before my day started, but a few hours after going back, the clothes looked like i didn't even start the washer, so i added more clothes, ( thinking it was me) but it wasn't, My daughter told me that it stopped already because she heard the buzzard .. but it was fine. I like doing laundry now :-) And I got twice the laundry done , which was great !! I cannot be more happy with it. Thanks to my friends at the Woodbridge, VA store, Chris and Sharf.. They were so patient, and accommodating. Thanks again, and I would definitely buy this again, but I don't think I will need to for a very long time. Awesome machine, and I am very very happy with it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Wonderful Washer

I had been looking for a high efficiency washer for well over a year. I wanted to be able to wash king and queen size comforters as well my regular laundry. This washer is quiet and very versatile. You need to read your washer manual and try different settings and combinations. I am very pleased with this 5.2 cu. ft. Kenmore washer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Huge capacity, quiet, cleans well.

Out of the box this is a large unit. Be sure you have a 29"+ wide doorway and final location to handle it's size. But its size easily pays off in the quantity of clothes it can wash in one load. It washes almost twice as much as my old top load washer could handle. Some reviews have criticized the error codes that have popped up when washing too many towels. I have not had this problem. But then I load it reasonably, and I don't push it too far. The door is hinged on the left and cannot be changed. I have used/operated many washers, and I really like this one. It classy looking, easy to use/operate, and is energy efficient. I highly recommend this unit.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Larger Washer Pan

After months of trying to get this machine delivered by sears it finally came. The first problem is that the driver / installer said the washing machine pan I already had was too small of a pan large enough for a 27in washer. Why sears doesn't offer the right size pan is beyond my belief. So after shopping around various websites for washing machine pans I found one at **********. The Model #96 size 31x 33 1/2. You'll probably have to order, its not normally a stocked size. You'll have to make a hole for the drain spout if installing upstairs of a home. And when pulled off the truck WOW its way larger than I thought. Make sure go to the store and measure, it's a pretty **** big machine. As other people have commented this machine makes a loud banging noise as it calibrates a loud takes a while to get use to. Very annoying, Defiantly a negative. If purchasing you'll probably want to install in a basement of a home because of the noise. Theres a smaller version of this machine 4.0 cu thats probably the one you want. Its larger than you'll use on most instances. The dryer I have never filled up. Overall it washes Well, No complaints. Still getting use to the cycles. **** I haven't even read the directions. But its a washing machine. After all the research of machines, what Ive come to is theres no perfect machine. They all come off an assembly line and just pray get a good. I was infatuated with machine, big isn't better but its defiantly a good product but all will have something you'll complain about. Good Luck!!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
