Product Description

Kenmore 3.4 cu. ft. Top-Load Washing Machine - Optimum Efficiency

Featuring a Dual Action Plus agitator and powerful spin cycles, the Kenmore 3.4 cu. ft. top-load washing machine 20022 offers energy efficient cleaning to save you money. The unique agitator works detergents deep into clothes using both sideways and clockwise motions, while the bleach dispenser delivers perfectly mixed concentrations to more effectively clean your clothes. The powerful 700 rpm spin cycle shortens the time required for drying, saving even more energy. With four load sizes, four water temperatures and eight cycle options, this Kenmore top-loading washing machine allows you to adjust for each individual load.

  • The Dual Action® agitator moves both side-to-side and clockwise to double the cleaning power while still delivering gentle care for delicate fabrics.
  • Multiple wash cycles give your hardy work clothes, delicate linens, and stained fabrics the treatment they need to look their best.
  • A small footprint makes this washer an easy fit for apartments, basements and starter homes, while powerful performance delivers the same clean you’d expect from larger machines.
  • Whether you’re washing wool, cotton or high-tech fabrics, a choice of four water temperatures makes it easy to customize your wash.
  • Rapid spin speeds squeeze excess water from clothes, linens and more for faster, easier transfer to your dryer and shorter dry times.

There is nothing wrong with this washer folks!
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.

worst machine I ever bought
this is the worst appliance I have ever had in my life. I was shocked to see that they are still selling this washing machine. this machine has a mind of it own. sometimes it would work & some times it would not. I could never count on it. I always tried to stay on top of my laundry because I would not know when this would be the last load of clothes it would wash. I had so many problems with this machine that I don't have time to list all of them If I can save one person from wasting their hard earned money on this washing machine then this review will be worth the time I took to write it. My washing machine was put out with the trash last week. I love my new washing machine even though I hate having to spend more money on a new machine but I am so glad I didn't sink more money in this product.

Do not buy this washer if you want to save time and money

This washer takes forever to fill and to wash. It's been almost 3 hours washing a load and it stops (to start the Rinse), Wash light turns off, Rinse light turns on and in 2 seconds it turns off and goes back to Wash and it starts washing again. When it finishes, the load is all soaked and I have to start from scratch. If you appreciate your time and you want to save money on water and electricity, DO NOT GET THIS WASHER! I swear they make them this bad so you have to get a new one every 2-3 years. I prefer an old durable washing machine without crappy electronics!

Ok for the price

The price was right, and I wasn't looking to spend a ton of money. The pros - every load comes out clean, no soap residue, the door lock is not as annoying that some have stated, water level choices are nice, water temps are right. Cons - when leaving lid up during filling (sensing) for 10 minutes water automatically empties w/o running cycle and there is no stopping it, a little noisy, but not unbearable ( mine has to go in my kitchen, I can still hear the tv in the living room, but there is no denying that you are running the washer) my delivery guys were GREAT! but Sears forgot to send the hoses ( almost a positive cause I ran to the hardware and got the same exact things $10 cheaper). If it last me 5 years I will be happy with the purchase, you get what you pay for so anything beyond that I would give it 5 stars.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice enough Washing Machine

I gave it 4 stars because I don't like the locking lid feature. You have to cancel the whole wash cycle if you need to open the lid for anything. Then start the whole wash cycle over....however, it does clean your clothes very well

Keep calm, learn your machine. 2 years going fine.

1. Normal cycles only provide a spray rinse. You will not be able to utilize fabric softener on these. 2.Other cycles do provide full tub rinse: HD both & separate Rinse/spin. 3.Buy a Downey ball and drop in at start for above 2 cycles only. 4.Place in area where sound/noise is not an issue, basement/garage. 5.Get over the 9seconds it takes for safety lock to open when pausing. 6.High spin speed enabled by above feature means short dry times. 7.The delicate cycle substitutes for no light wash on this model. 8.The delicate cycle is the ONLY FAST cycle. & utilizes less electricity. 9. Utilize normal cycles when you have time before in the evening 6-8pm to save on water/electric. 10.Save time and electricity buy (gentle cycle) NOT over-washing your lightly soiled clothing, if you work inside and not in construction, you don't need to treat them as such. Note jeans last longer and recommend light, cold washing. 11.If you happen to be spoiled, this machine may not be for you... 300 dollars buys effective cleaning and a reality check.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Do NOT buy this washer

Having always bought Kenmore I didn't hesitate to buy this washer for a weekend place. BIG mistake. The fill and wash cycle takes what seems forever--- well over an hour. The lock mechanism makes you want to take a hammer to it which is a feeling I rarely have. It is so loud it sounds like a freight train coming through. I've never been so disappointed. Learn from my mistake and buy a different washer. I can't believe this one is still on the market!

DO NOT PURCHASE!

Ok let me start from the beginning........THIS WASHER IS THE WORST APPLIANCE PURCHASE EVER!!!!! I have read the reviews before purchasing but I thought to myself that I love my other Kenmore appliances and to to ignore and purchase. First, I have noticed that most if not all of my blouses and my daughter's uniform buttons are missing after the wash?? Second, if you decide to add a piece of clothing - FORGET IT!!!! You stand there FOREVER for the lid to 'unlock'. By then you are so disgusted!!!! It is extremely loud and worst of all, if you want to change cycles.....YOU CAN'T! I had the washer for what - several months and needed to replace the motor??The wash cycle is way too long. I'm going back to Whirlpool!

Worst purchase I ever made

I'm a single guy who lives alone. I don't need a fancy washer. I knew I wasn't going to get an amazing machine, but I did have an expectation that it wouldn't completely break within 2 years. The lid lock is a bit annoying, but it's tolerable. I don't use fabric softener, but if I did, I could imagine my frustration magnified 10 fold. The real problem is that the drum is like a wild bull. It slams against the sides of the washer with a thundering bang. The clothes get tied and tangled up in the agitator which means that they don't dry during the spin cycle. If too much detergent is used, it won't drain fast enough and with the violent drum shaking the water will fly out of the drum and onto your floor. It's only gotten worse with time. Used to be maybe 1 in 30 loads would result in water overflowing. Now it's 1 in 3. I can't deal with it anymore. I'll never buy a Kenmore ever again. How is Sears still selling this machine? I'm surprised there isn't a class action lawsuit.
