    hate it
    by: Sherri

    I've tried to like this machine for 3 years.
    The only good thing I can say about this washer is it looks pretty.
    This week, I got the good old fashioned agitator white kind and am getting rid of this.

    Dingy whites
    by: Anonymous

    bought this model in May 2011. Could never get whites to be clean. Called Sears, they said it does not have a rinse cycle since a part is missing. Who Knew! They will send part and technician to service washer in two weeks.

    Poor Quality Control
    by: Anonymous

    Does not get clothes clean. After 14 months of use (just out of warranty), the rear tub bearing and seal failed, which causes bearing grease to leak into the wash water and stain the clothes. This is a major high dollar repair!

    by: Vanessa

    Whites dingy, colors not clean, leaks at door, odor even with cleaning, drying and leaving door open. Fabric softener stains, dispenser trays fill with water, loud spin cycle, scratches easily. Not recommended.

    by: Anonymous

    I have this model, This model is the worst of all the kenmore appilances that I had. My white clothes do not get clean in this model. But when I use my old top load kenmore washer they come out bright and clean. I only use Tide HE products as recomment but still I can not get my white cloth clean and stain free.
