  • Kenmore Oasis™ HE 27082 (all models) Never Again

    Feb 9, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It did save water and cleaned the clothes as expected.
    Cons: Never again.

    Summary: I am done with purchasing major Appliances at Sears. I purchase this top of the line High Efficiency Oasis model for ~ $1200, along with the matching gas dryer. This is long. Sorry... I knew about the Calypso issues that Kenmore/Whirlpool had, so ... read more

  • Kenmore Elite Worst Washer Ever

    Pros: Looks, Stainless Steel Tub, Features, Spin Cycle
    Cons: Manufacturer's Defects, Reliability, Ability to get Clothes Clean, Loud

    Summary: Bought the Kenmore Elite (also known as and made by Whirlpool Cabrio) for over $800 a few years ago. Model: 110.270 and just like thousands of others, my machine started showing an F1 error code recently. It also started shaking the house ... read more

    Pros: There are none-- machine was serviced so often that it was replaced.
    Cons: What is Sears making.  No more Sears products for me!!!

    Summary: We purchased a Sears Kenmore Elite washer, dryer and dishwater about a year ago.  We have had all kinds of problems with each and its seems the service personnel live at our home, they visit so often.  Each appliance has been replaced with a ... read more

  • Hard earned money down the drain

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleaned nicely when it worked, if you did not try to use the bleach dispenser.
    Cons: Unreliable
    Uneven distribution of bleach, often ruining clothes
    expensive repairs
    long wait for Sears techs

    Summary: I don't know about you, but I work hard for my money. I am willing to spend the big bucks necessary to purchase a new washer, of course assuming it will last and eventually be worth the large bundle of cash.  Not this washer!!  It is 3 years ... read more

    Pros: It looks cool. Thats about the extent of it.
    Cons: Fails to do anything it promises properly, can't be repaired.

    Summary: We were gifted this washer as a wedding present and it was a wonderful thought as a gift. However the washer is crap. It worked so so for about a year then began to freak out. I NEVER washed the size load it advertised. It was supposed to wash 20 towels ... read more

  • newer is not better-hate the machine/miss my old one

    Pros: It has a large capacity.  That is the only good thing I can think of.
    Cons: It twists, wrinkles and ruins clothes.  It doesn't clean well.  F1 code stops machine.

    Summary: I hate this washing machine more than words can express.  If I could have my old machine back, which was only working on one cycle, I would trade back in a heart beat. The Kenmore Elite Oasis wrinkles everything so badly you can't get the wrinkles ... read more

    Pros: Looks really nice and has large capacity.
    Cons: High cost not justified! 

    Summary: We bought a matching Kenmore Elite Oasis washer/dryer set in Oct 2006 when we moved into our newly built home.  The washer and dryer have been easy to use and worked just fine until November 2009.  At that time the washer ... read more

    Pros: does a pretty good job of washing the clothes
    Cons: if you have one large item....machine will jump  Also, the lid bolts rust

    Summary: I have read all the comments regarding the lousy way the machine washes but I fail to see one reference to the bolts that connect the lid to the washer rusting right out.  I had mine for 16 months and one day the lid came down and ... read more

    Pros: Efficient, large load capacity, cleans well, easy to use
    Cons: Repeated problems with circuit board, not reliable, poor customer service

    Summary: We have owned the Kenmore Oasis Canyon Capacity Washing Machine for about 16months. Purchased brand new from Sears along with dryer for approx $1500. We really loved the open drum (no agitator) and the energy water efficiency of this model. We have ... read more

    Pros: large capacity
    Cons: getting used to new washing procedures

    Summary: We've had both the washing machine and dryer since a year ago last Christmas and the biggest issue was trying to open the washing machine lid while it was locked. This broke the locking piece which turns out to be plastic. We called Sears and had this ... read more

    Pros: Can Fit a Large Comforter in Washer
    Cons: Control Panel Needs Replacement $279.99 Leaves Soap Residue on Clothes and Wrinkles Clothes

    Summary: I purchased this Oasis 27082 for $999 a little over 2 years ago (March 2006) and for the first time, I had to call the repair man. I didn't purchase the Sears extended warranty so my own repair man came out the same day. The temperature panel is ... read more

    Pros: Cycles, Clear door, easy to use, capacity.
    Cons: eh... none really. A few breakable parts.

    Summary: We purchased the Kenmore Elite Oasis washer the month after they came out on the east coast. I absolutely loved it. Two years and still in love with it. The tub itself is a 4.5 cubic foot stainless steel drum with the invizible agitator. I really ... read more

    Pros: Please see my comments.
    Cons: Please see my comments.

    Summary: We went to purchase a replacement washer as ours had died. I wanted just a basic model but my hubby convinced me to buy the large capacity since we are a family of 5. I must admit, I was VERY, VERY skeptical at first. I was greatly troubled by the ... read more

    Pros: Machines are nice looking.
    Cons: Frequent breakdowns and glitches. Very poor customer service.

    Summary: My story: We bought the Kenmore Oasis washer and matching dryer. I was attracted to the sleek design and the claims that they save water and electricity. They are delivered on time and are a dream. I am getting my wash done in half the time it used to ... read more

    Pros: Capacity and looks
    Cons: Everything in the review body

    Summary: I'm angry enough at this machine and Sears that I plan to take things further. I want my money back and I won't be railroaded into having to spend it at Sears. I bought my OASIS washer in August 2006. From the very start, I was frustrated with my lack ... read more

    Pros: It look cool in my beautiful (un-balanced) laundryroom
    Cons: It's giving me an ulser and killing my back

    Summary: I visit this sight every time I wash any bedding because I get so angry. The Oasis has been the most frustrating and expensive mistake I have ever made. This machine is constantly throwing itself off balance, requiring me to pull extremely heavy wet ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Large capacity, looks good, watching the wash cycle throught the glass can be hypnotic.
    Cons: unreliable(breaks down too frequently), untrustworthy customer support, Parts service not adequate

    Summary: It's awesome if you enjoy having to go to the Laundromat at least 3 months of the year to wash your clothes. Not to mention the time spend on the phone with customer service. How Sears defines customer service (think military intelligence).... Any way, ... read more

    Pros: Was a large capacity.
    Cons: Product failure. circuit issues.

    Summary: Not only the machine broke down 3 days after the 1 yr warranty but I will never buy anything from Sears again. I do not have kids at home so this one year was not at all used heavily. Maybe if used heavily this issue would of showed up sooner. The ... read more

    Pros: It's Pretty
    Cons: It Destroys your clothes

    Summary: I bought this product expecting a great washer especially since it was so pricey (We paid $1100 for this)... Instead I got The Mangler! The washer mangled all the clothes that I washed in it no matter what cycle or spin speed I used. And yes I did try ... read more
