Pros: Attractive looking machine, does use less water. Uses less soap.
Cons: Twists clothes, wrinkles clothes, shreds towels
I bought a Kenmore top loading elite Oasis HE washing machine in July of 06 and was very excited to be using an energy efficient, water saving washer. Unfortunately the machine binds and twists clothes causing wrinkles and stretching.New towels washed by the machine have unravelled on the side seams making them unusable. I have spoken to Sears about these problems with no satisfaction. The salesman recommended a service call but did comment that other customers had commented that the clothes washed by this machine were unusually twisted and wrinkled. As I did not buy an extended warranty and the original warranty has expired the company will do nothing about this machine. Any service work will be entirely paid by me. Do not buy this machine. I think this design is flawed.
