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!
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.
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.
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!
. Huge washer; excellent results.. From Soccer , muddy pants, and muddy paws ~ I am thoroughly impressed, and very grateful to my salesmen.. they told me from the beginning I SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS A LONG TIME AGO.. so they were right :-) I am very grateful, and very happy with the results. I would buy again and recommend. Thank you Woodbridge, VA Team !!
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 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.
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.
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!!!!
The washer does an on/off slow fill that initially was causing "water hammer" with our pipes. We did not have it before with another brand. After thinking it was just the hoses hitting the wall I secured those and it still happened. After buying a $10 water hammer arrestor from ********** the problem was solved. I did read other reviews about banging noise. Why a $1500 washer doesn't come with this $10 part is beyond me.
