Kenmore Washing Machine

Sears' Kenmore brand is among the most well-known names in the appliance industry. The best thing about the Kenmore line of washing machines is the many useful features that are available.

Pros: Kenmore appliances are generally stylish, easy to use and dependable, so it should come as no surprise that they are found in millions of homes across the country. Some Kenmore washers are designed to save energy (up to 20 percent of the energy needed to wash a normal load). Not only is this good for the environment, it's also good for your wallet. Another option that Kenmore offers is something called Skin Care Rinse. Essentially, this feature allows your washing machine to clean even delicate items without leaving behind any residue. This is perfect for people who have sensitive skin that is agitated by detergent residue. For those with kids, there's the Kids Wear cycle, which is designed to target the kind of stains that kids tend to get, such as grass, mud and blood stains.

Cons: As with many major brands, the customer service for Kenmore appliances isn't always optimal. Many customers have complained of problems with Sears when it comes to getting their Kenmore washer fixed in a timely manner. Additionally, it seems as if Sears is far from flexible when it comes to warranty issues. However, these things won't be a problem for you unless your washing machine breaks, and all indications are that Kenmore washers are quite well made. Sure, the occasional mechanical failure is unavoidable, but that's also the case with every other brand of washing machine.

Overall: Sears' Kenmore brand of home appliances has grown in leaps and bounds over the years. Kenmore washing machines, one of the most well-known products in the Kenmore line, are some of the most advanced (yet still user-friendly) washers on the market today.
