  • I wish our old machine had quit sooner

    Oct 10, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great cleaning, quiet, useful features, durable, and very wise in use of water and power
    Cons: Possible issue with panel resonance during spin cycle

    Summary: Our old top loading Kenmore died this past week. Sadly, it ceased respirations with a tub full of dirty washwater and a big old bathroom rug in it. I am an old hand when it comes to nursing appliances back to life, but one look down the throat of our ... read more

  • Great Machine

    Jun 20, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans really well, quiet, large capacity, easy to use, easy on clothes.
    Cons: Heavy....only a problem if you don't have Sears deliver it

    Summary: I have read most of the reviews and don't have much "new" information to add. It is a great machine. I picked the machine up myself and hauled it to the second floor. Don't do this if you can avoid it. It weighs 247 pounds. Add 50 pounds for a dolly and ... read more

  • Mold problems after 1 1/2 years of use

    Jan 26, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great water and energy conservation.
    Cons: Design flaw in the door allows mold growth.

    Summary: I have been very happy with my machine until the past few months when I began smelling a foul odor from my washer. My clothes began taking on this odor. Upon close inspection, I found so much mold in the rubber boot around the inside of the door. It ... read more

  • Front loader

    Jan 4, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: I do much less laundry then ever before and I love that part!
    Cons: The vibrations that are created during the last 5 minutes of the cycle.

    Summary: I really like the front loader washer machine and never really thought that it would be much different than a regular machine. I was sure to do my homework before a purchase. But does anyone else have a problem with the vibration on the spin cycle. I ... read more

  • I've had this washer for 2 years and love it!

    Dec 3, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Low water usage, important for septic systems. Clean, clean clothes!
    Cons: Initial price, but it pays for itself later.

    Summary: I've had a wonderful experience with this washer over the two years I have had it. I researched it on this site before I bought it, and I was sold by the good reviews. I owe it to this site to review it after a goodly length of ownership. It's not ... read more

  • Happy With Our Decision

    Oct 7, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of use, quiet, water efficiency, appearance
    Cons: Cost, some vibration during spin cycle

    Summary: We really weren't planning to spend $1,000 on a new washing machine, but it just so happened that my wife and I couldn't agree on any other machine, so it was one of those "do it for the sake of the marriage" kind of decisions. But we are both happy ... read more

    Pros: Energy efficient, QUIET, great wash results, QUIET, less water usage, QUIET
    Cons: Spin cycle can get a bit loud and sometimes shimmies.

    Summary: When we moved into our new home, we left our washer and dryer behind in our old home, planning to buy new. We figured, look for the best so it will last, and ended up buying these Kenmore He3 models, both washer and dryer. I couldn't be more pleased! ... read more

  • Run out and buy this set! Laundry's never been so easy!

    Jul 26, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Absolutely everything! Capacity, number of cycle choices, quietness, button lock, alarm on washer...
    Cons: None so far.

    Summary: I did tons of research, read all the reviews yet I was still a little reluctant because of the price. With our 4th child not even here yet, laundry was already an all day everyday affair. I got on Ebay and found the washer at a Sears outlet for $750. ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very efficient, cleans great, nice features
    Cons: Expensive, not much flexibility for installation, detergent more expensive

    Summary: When I had triplets last fall, we decided to sell our perfectly good top-load Kenmore washing machine and invest in a front-load washer (yes, it *is* an investment at about $1000). We were using cloth diapers, and with no diaper service available in our ... read more

    Pros: Quiet, energy efficient, cleans well, easy to load/unload
    Cons: Door is not reversible.

    Summary: We bought this unit to replace a front-load washer that had a major failure after two years of ownership. We bought both units at Sears and I must say that Sears worked with us so that we were "happy" customers once again. My wife didn't want to replace ... read more

    Pros: Efficient and easy to use.
    Cons: Heavy duty or concrete floors required??? Got Steel??

    Summary: Washer is efficient and yes it is easy to use. But, in my application (washer and matching dryer 3 months old) this washers spin cycle is OUT OF CONTROL. I have done every thing short of calling NASA to help me level this thing in the hope of perfectly ... read more

    Pros: Great cleaning, quiet, energy efficient, large capacity
    Cons: Expensive, HE detergent is recommended which is also pricey and not available in large sizes

    Summary: Instead of trying to fix our 12 year old Kenmore washer, we decided to get a new washer. After doing some quick preliminary research on the internet on washers, we decided to look at the front loading types. The advantages were the energy savings (1/4 ... read more
