Well first off I wanted the most inexpensive washer I could find at Sears, this one was it. I hated that it had all the negative feedback and that made me search the others. Then I went back to actually read about the negatives vs positives. The things everyone complained about, in my opinion, was due to user error or just not used to a more modern washer. They are programmed differently and more electronic than the older models. That's just technology for you, you cannot go backwards with these types of things. You cannot buy a new 15 year old washer today-get over it. You have to deal with industry standards like the features that this one has. This thing is quiet. Couple extra noises while it auto-calibrates in the beginning so what. I was worried about not having enough water level, it came up perfectly and I wasn't even on the largest setting. No leaks like someone else said. Washed clean, all detergent was washed off, no dry spots on clothing. Dried very well with the spin. I had no reason to lift the lid during any of the cycles but decided to anyways. Press the pause button and it stops for you-press again and it picks up where it left off--no problems there. If someone actually wanted to get rid of the lid lock its only 2 screws and you can remove it and place into the top receiver--problem solved--open whenever you like. It is there for your "safety" of course. I would buy this model again. Hope it holds up for many years as I am in no hurry to get rid of it.

We bought this washer 2 years ago and already it is broken. The water overflows. It is a mess. My husband took the control panel apart to see which part needed replacing and it is all just cheap plastic parts. I hate this washer so much. It is too small, it becomes unbalanced all the time and makes the most awful noises. I am so sorry we bought a Kenmore washing machine. We had a whirlpool before that lasted over 15 years. It makes me sick that we wasted our hard earned money on this piece of junk.

Please, please, PLEASE do not buy this washer. I am listing everything that is wrong with this thing. 1. The washer does not mix detergent well. I have tried numerous different kinds of detergent, to include pods, and I ALWAYS had laundry soap left on my clothes. I tried adding soap to the washer first, and then dumping a bucket of water to dilute before adding clothes, but the soap would still be there at the end of the wash cycle. This washer does not rinse well. 2. The locking lid is a real bummer. If you forget to add a piece of clothing, you have to hit the pause button and wait until the washer unlocks the lid before you can add it. This wouldn't be such a big deal if the washer would unlock! Sometimes you have to wait up to 5 minutes for the latch to release. Unreal. 3. No fabric softener dispenser. I thought I could get around this by buying a downy fabric softener dispensing ball, but the machine doesn't pop the ball at the right time...if at all. If you want to use fabric softener, you are going to have to sit next to the machine and wait for the right time to hit the pause button. 4. The rinse cycle is pathetic. Going hand in hand with number 1, this machine rinses horribly and leaves residue on your wash. Sometimes you can see it- white film on your darks. Other times you can feel it on the wash when you transfer it to the dryer. I have tried unsuccessfully to make the loads smaller in the hopes that maybe this washer would rinse better. Never happened. It doesn't seem to matter how much or little you put in this thing. I recommend if you are interested in buying this washer, you spend the extra 100 bucks and get something better. If your budget is tight, go get a used washer on craigslist... Don't sink your money in this one!
I have had this machine for 17 months and the lid lock light keeps blinking and the machine wont sensor. The service call will cost me half the price of the machine-not worth it. I had my old washer for 10 years and only bought a new one because we moved-VERY disappointed. Do NOT RECOMMEND.

I hate this washer!! the locking lid is such an inconvenience for fabric softner! There is no fabric siftner dispenser tried the downy ball it doesnt release all the fabric softner DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS!!
This is the worst washing machine I have ever owned. Every time I wash sheets or large towels, it goes off balance and stops. Stopping the machines is terrible. I have only owned this machine since 2011. I'm done, and done with Kenmore, I going to ********** and buying a GE Washing Machine.
