The Kenmore 4044 offers many helpful features that make washing garments a pleasant experience. The user does not have to contend with high energy bills, noisy operation, dirty wash and space cramming. The washing machine is also quite attractive, making it a good addition to any room.
The washing machine may offer an almost perfect combination of efficiency, energy saving and good looks but it does have long cycles. For users who have several loads of wash or who have to wait for each cycle to finish, the long load cycles can get very inconvenient and annoying. Some buyers have complained about Kenmore's poor customer and delivery services.
