    DO NOT BUY KENMORE OR SHOP AT SEARS!
    by: Anonymous

    Our Kenmore washer broke after 3 years. After less than a year it kept getting off cycle. We called and they taught us how to reset the machine. Now, the washer will not reset and we can't do laundry because it will not drain. I guess our warranty expired after 2.5 years (which seems odd to me, but that's what they told us), and neither Sears nor Kenmore will help us fix it or get a discount on a new washer. Our last washer was nearly 25 years old when it died, so 3 years was a huge disappointment.

    Kenmore 500
    by: will

    REeently purchased one. nearly impossible to balance a load, has no off balance shutoff, so drum smashes around, bearings wont last long, very noisy. actually rolls dirt and hair into balls and leaves it in clothing. very poor machine over all. i'm giving it away to thrift shop and putting a new timer in my 30 year old maytag, far superior machine.
