  • Kenmore Magic Blue Canister Vacuum ~ Decent for the Price

    Feb 9, 2005 by amyk49 is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Home and Garden
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight and compact, inexpensive, on-board tool storage
    Cons: Not the best for bare floors, no rubber bumper guards, easily rolls over

    Summary: For some time I've been wanting to get a small, compact canister vacuum for my upstairs. I have only two rooms upstairs, and it's just a pain to haul my larger canister vacuum up the stairs. I thought it would be great to have a small vacuum that just ... read more

  • Hello, stylish dryer of clothes... (touchy circuit board)

    Aug 11, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: gentle on clothes, easy to clean and maintain, stackable, drys quickly
    Cons: not cheap, regular dry setting sometimes isn't quite dry (we use extra dry)

    Summary: Previously we owned a matched set of Asko stacked machines which we bought brand new from a local kitchen store for the horrifying price of $2200 in 1997.  We were young and wanted front loading and this was all we could find at the time.  ... read more

  • I will never buy from Sears again. Avoid them like the plague!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It will work just long enough for the manufacturer's warranty to expire.
    Cons: Circuit board needs frequent replacement. Sears service people are incompetent.

    Summary: I purchased this dryer approximately 3 years ago. About 18 months later (just after the 1-year limited warranty expired), the dryer stopped working completely. The main circuit board had to be replaced.Another 18 months later, it happened again. ... read more

    Pros: They LOOK fancy.....that's about it.
    Cons: Cleaning, drying, stick with a top loader!!!

    Summary: 20 months in and have a GROSS stink in the drum of the dryer. Tech told me to run it until the smell goes away......blames it on some kind of chemical (in his report claims it is paint) Don't know how he could be so specific in a report when that is ... read more

  • Good replacement dryer

    Mar 1, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Wrinkle guard, fabric care,and moisture sensor features should be in any buyer's list
    Cons: The end of cycle signal is not loud enough for me

    Summary: The dryer that came standard with our house started making a lot of metallic noise and made me decide, on a short notice, to go buy a new unit I'd be happy about. After consulting with Consumer Report on dryers, I opted for this dryer for the following ... read more

  • Kenmore Elite HE4 Model 110.85866 Is A Great Dryer

    Mar 31, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, drys closes well, and a great match to a front loading washer.
    Cons: High priced.

    Summary: Our Kenmore Elite HE4, in dark graphite, is extremely quiet, does a great job drying clothes, holds a lot of laundry, and has been flawless for 3 years of weekly use. Make sure you purchase a pedestal with the unit. This dryer simply works, and works ... read more

    Pros: Does a great Job when it works.
    Cons: Constantly breaks down.  Horrible service to fix.

    Summary: I think a lot of comments must be by Sears or Kenmore employees.  These machines constantly break down.  Read the posts on the Internet and you will find literally thousands of people with problems and poor resolution. Both our washer and dryer ... read more

    Pros: The dryer turns off automatically by moisture sensor and is very quiet.
    Cons: Replacing the circuit board can be expensive without a warranty.

    Summary: Overall, dryer works well, however, major problem with the circuit board. Had to get the circuit board replaced after over a year. ... read more

    Pros: Nice looking.
    Cons: Everything else about it..reliability, durability....

    Summary: I have three appliances all under the age of two years. All three have had to have service calls. Only one made it beyond it's first year. The Elite HE washer and dryer looks nice. Lots of fancy buttons. But the dryer's circuit board went out w/in ... read more

    Pros: looks, quietness
    Cons: only lasts 3 weeks!!!

    Summary: After my 14 yr old GE dryer died last month we decided to replace both the washer and dryer with a top of the line (so we thought) set of Kenmore HE4 and HE4T machines. While our initial impression of the machines was positive we were quickly ... read more

    Pros: 1.Uses less energy. 2.More cycles for better use. 3.Clothes don't look worn as fast.
    Cons: None

    Summary: I purchased the Kenmore Elite HE4 Front-loading Electric Dryer for my wife on February 11,2006. She absolutely loves it. We bought this in addition to the matching washer- both in Pacific Blue. The extra stand allows her to save her back from excess ... read more

    Pros: Retractable cord, power, power switch on handle, price
    Cons: none so far

    Summary: I've never written a review here but had to for this little sucker. I have a small apartment and needed a canister to get into the small areas under tables and stuff. This works well on bare floors and good enough on my carpet. I'm sure it wont work as ... read more

    Pros: Light weight.
    Cons: Lousy on rugs and carpets. Attachments are junk. LOUSY CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!

    Summary: I bought this after we changed over most of our house to tile and wood. I figured that it could handle that and although it did clean the hard surfaces well, it was awful on the little carpeting we do have. It pushed the dog hair around rather than ... read more

    Pros: Quiet, drys perfectly
    Cons: None so far

    Summary: While there isn't much to dryers, I've got to say that this one is one of the best. If you get the HE3 or HE4 washer, you have to get this dryer. The automatic cycle settings dry the clothes perfectly. There's no putting towels and jeans back in order ... read more

    Pros: WORKS WELL ON HARD SURFACES, EASY TO STORE, SUCTION IS GOOD
    Cons: DOES NOT WORK AT ALL ON RUGS

    Summary: I BOUGHT THIS VACUUM BECAUSE I HAD AN UPRIGHT THAT WAS TO BIG AND CLUNKY TO LUG AROUND THE HOUSE. IT WORKED WELL FOR MAYBE THE FIRST WEEK I HAD IT (AND THAT MAY BE PUSHING IT) AND THEN THE RUG BEATER JUST COMPLETELY STOPPED WORKING. I HAD IT "FIXED" 2 ... read more

    Pros: Auto cord-winder, sturdy steel shaft, handy storage for attachments, excellent suction, controls on handle.
    Cons: Carpet head underpowered and cheaply made, beater-brush clogs easily.

    Summary: I'd read the reviews of this vacuum and thought it sounded decent. On the tile in my house, it worked wonderfully. However, on the carpeted areas it's not good at all. Not only is the belt exceedingly tiny, (about 1/16"), but the brush in the head ... read more

  • Super little vacuum cleaner

    Rated Show
    Pros: Great suction for the size and price. Telescopic wand makes vacuuming much easier.
    Cons: Not enough tools, (no round brush) Tools look a little flimsy.

    Summary: I needed a new vacuum cleaner that was not so heavy. Went to Sears and found this Magic Blue. I tried it out in the store and was impressed. I paid $90.00 for it, and really feel it's much more vacuum cleaner than the dollar amount paid. The telescopic ... read more

  • I love my new vacuum!

    Pros: Light-weight, good construction, works well on low-pile carpet and floors, variable speed, telescoping feature.
    Cons: Cord could be longer, changing bare floor tool or carpet tool cumbersome.

    Summary: I was looking for a small canister vac for our hardwood and vinyl floors. To my surprise it works great on our berber-style rugs and area rugs as well! I ditched my big clunky vacuum. The Magic Blue is lightweight, and powerful for the price. Just what I ... read more
