Already having issues with standard cycle. Just purchased in march.
Item was received and all seemed well, yet after a week of use the machine started buzzing out of control. Turns out it was the door lock which is now on its way to another replacement. I sort of regret purchasing a front loader after all the issues. I definitely expected more from Kenmore and sears, that for sure. My advice is to stay away.
I have had this washer less than a week and highly recommend it! I does everything I wanted and is easy to use. This is the best washer I have had in 32yrs!
This product is just cheap junk. We are a couple with no children and no pets so we do not need fancy bells and whistles. Our previous Kenmore washer lasted 10 years so that's why we chose this. We don't do big loads. The tub went out of round after 7 months, was completely replaced under warranty and now the exact thing has happened again after 2 more months. Still under warranty, but i have no belief that after it's repaired it won't break again. Of course, when it does break you have to deal with sears' nightmare customer service. Just find another store and buy something else.
I was a little worried about this purchase because of some of the negative feedback on reviews. Let me tell you, I have been washing clothes for at least 40 years and by far this has been one of the best investments I have made. It was properly installed and set up. It does not vibrate or stink. The door on the washer and soap dispenser should be left open a little after use to air dry. The clothes get clean and spin dry well. The secret is Don't overload! I only use the medium spin cycle and it spins exceptionally well. The washer is very quiet. I usually use the 45 min minute cycle which is very efficient. There are several options of cycles to choose from. It also has a visible timer and an end of cycle bell. I would definitely recommend to anyone. You can stack this set and still reach all the controls.
Washer was great but stopped operating completely after 1 month of moderate use. The repair is covered under warranty but was delayed excessively by overbooking and technician error.
I replaced my 9 year old Kenmore cheapie standard set with these because i wanted a freezer again (nothing wrong with the old set, my coworker got a great deal) . I needed the space where my old upright freezer used to be as a broom closet but missed having a bit more freezer space. I am amazed how much i like this W/D stacking set. i chose these as they were the only set i could easily reach the dryer controls, most stack sets are too tall for my petite 5'3". This 'compact' set does more clothes than the old 'super capacity' set and i am pleasantly surprised how much easier it is to fold clothes with the dryer at eye level. As for vibration, we were very careful set if off the wall an inch or so and level it carefully and it shakes less than my old standard washer in the spin cycle and NEVER gets unbalanced unlike the old technology did. I am careful the add the detergent pack on the bottom of the clothes per instruction and I do use liquid fabric softener and haven't had any issues. I did invest in some net bags and use them so I haven't had any issues with socks getting lost or bras getting torn up, I keep a washcloth hanging next to my hangers and before i take the clothes from the washer to the dryer, I give the door and the gasket a quick wipe as suggested and move the latch guard to keep the door propped open. i thought 'wow that's going to be a hassle' when i read the instructions but it's not at all and I have had no problem with odors. The once a month cleaning cycle is a breeze, I just do it the same time I change the filter on the furnace on the first day of every month. All in all, i am VERY pleased with this new set and since i got it on the Presidents Day sale and took the floor models, i got a great price too. I think if you follow instructions this set works extremely well.
Resets settings with every wash. Leaks all over the floor constantly. I've had this for about a year and a half because our old washer broke. Biggest appliance mistake I've ever made.
This was a replacement for an apartment. Easy to install, comparable to the previous washer. The salesman (2 actually) indicated it would stack with the existing dryer, but we had no problem!
Purchased this washer to twice previous front ladder. Received on Wednesday and used Wednesday. Went to use it Sunday and waterline cracked and leaking. Not worth waisting your Monday on.
