The Kenmore Elite Ginger is chock-full of great features. The standard and special cycles will definitely be able to respond to all sorts of washing needs from the delicate to the heavy duty. Because of the pause feature, you do not even have to wait for the whole cycle to finish before you can add one piece of garment. This will ultimately save you time, energy and detergent. The Energy Star qualified washing machine is definitely a money saver. It also looks great with its ginger color and durable stainless steel material.
There is not much to say badly about the Kenmore Elite Ginger. It is a money saver that looks gorgeous in any room. However, even a casual cycle can take a long time to finish. With such a light cycle finishing after over an hour, you have wasted quite some time that could be used for washing another load. The steam washing is also limited to some cycles only.
