Kenmore 700 Series - 3.5 cubit feet - Top Load
This is a functional top loading washing machine with a 3.5 cu ft capacity, which means that it can wash up to 18 bath towels in a single load.
The machine is designed to reduce the impact on the environment, saving 32% on water and 48% on energy consumption (based on using the normal cycle and compared to a conventional machine built before 2004).

Designed for long life
The Kenmore 700 is designed for reliability and long life, having a white porcelain wash basket that is intended to resist scratches and minimize odors. The SMART CARE function can be overridden, allowing the user to choose how much water to use and the temperature of the wash – there are five different settings for each.
Noise is often a problem with washers and while this one is not silent, it has good balance and anti-vibration features which keep the volume down. The washer has a security feature which prevents the lid from being opened when the wash cycle is in progress. It is available in either white or blue, and there is a matching Kenmore 700 dryer - they are a popular combination.
Not the most efficient but improving
This machine is more energy and water efficient than its predecessors, but is certainly not one of the most efficient on the market. However, it is a tried and tested design. The control panel is not as user-friendly as it could be and takes some getting used to, and some users find the neck of the tub a little small and have difficulty getting bulky items in and out.
The Kenmore 700 is a very popular washing machine, and another reliable member of the Kenmore stable of appliances. There are plenty of satisfied users out there who have found it toe be a reasonably priced solution.
If you are looking for a no-nonsense washing machine with a good capacity and reliability then you can’t go wrong with the Kenmore 700. More LG Washer ReviewsLG Washing Machines Main Page Washing and Dryer Reviews Homepage
