Cons:None yet

The Bottom Line: I am happy with the results and performance of this washer.


Many of you have been down this trail, our washer died and we needed another one badly. Well I decided we needed one that would perform for a very large and active family.

After searching the internet and going to several different stores we decided on the Kenmore 70 series, model number 20712. Though this washer wasn't my first choice I have not regretted getting it.

Here are the specifications that helped to make my choice:

* 3 Speed 1/2 hp motor
* Super capacity, 3 cubic feet tub
* Direct bleach and fabric softener dispensers
* Five water levels
1 Extra large
2 Large
3 Medium
4 Small
5 Extra small
* Ultra Clean with 15 cycles
* Self cleaning lint filter
* Price

You will notice that the price is last, however it was important in the decision process. And drawing attention to the price, there were other washers that had the same options and specifications with added little digital lights and that came in different colors, but when it came right down to performance for the money being spent this washer won out. Though I didn't buy the washer for looks, it has an nice appearance.

When using the washer it is very simple and if I happen to get my hands wet, the dials have rubber on them for a non-slip grip. The most frequent cycle that I use is the extra large capacity and all my clothes come out very nice, even the very ground in dirt you find with jeans and socks.

I haven't had the washer long enough to say how it might perform over a long time, but will try and up-date this in the future. We did purchase a three year warranty with it, which gives us a once a year service and repairs as needed.
