Kenmore Elite 5.2 cu. ft. Front-Load Washer - Clean Living

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.

The Greatest Washer

We have a total of 4 people in our family, which two are small children. Washing clothes is a full time job but thanks to this wash machine it takes the guess work out of how long or which cycle. Everything comes clean and it's fast. I would not trade this washing machine for any other!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good washer

Have owned this washer and matching dryer for about 6 months without any problems. Large load capacity is great for a family. Cleans fine and reasonably quiet. We do not use all the features but may at some point. Only issue is that the buyer needs to be careful about the size and measure carefully. We had to do major disassembly of the door to get it into the house.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Washing Machine

The washing machine I bought works really well. I have not had any leakage with the front load door. I hardly notice when the machine is running do to being so quiet. The heaviest of my comforters comes out clean and fresh smelling.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

It's good so far...

This is my second washer in this brand. My first was the top loading washer. We had a lot of complications with it so we decided to get the front loader instead. So far so good. I haven't called the Sears repair men yet. The only drawback is having to drain out the extra water that sits in the washer. If all the water drained out of it regularly I would give it 5 stars. It's irritating to have to remember to drain it out or my washer could start to smell.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So Nice!!

The washer and dryer set was just what I was looking and hoping for. I have had them for a month now and really like the fact they are big enough to wash my comforters and blankets.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Worth Every Penny

Can't say enough positive things about this washer. Much faster than our older Kenmore Elite, with more bells and whistles that have come handy. My daughter plays Varsity Soccer and when she got her uniform it still had stains from the pervious player. I used the Work Out Wear cycle and put some Oxyclean and after it was done, it got all the stains, smells, and more. So far been a very happy customer. Only wish was the option choose which side the door opens.

Great performance

I buy this for my Hotel laundry. It is working great, I have commercial large machines but this one is good for small loads. My house keepers are very happy to have this for small loads.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great washing machine!!!!!

I normally used top load washing machines in the past. That's what I grew up on. When my husband bought this for me, I was a little scared. Since I started using it, the clothes come cleaner and dry faster saving me time and money on my energy bills. I would recommend this to everyone. Only one down side to it, all the stuff you have to do to make sure that it doesn't get ruined. Wiping down the door, emptying the filter then trying to get it out to clean it is a hassle. I will say that even though it's a hassle, it's worth it from what you get out of it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
