Fits Queen Blankets
I am currently waiting to receive replacement parts, so my saga is not yet over. If all goes well in the end I may upgrade my rating.<br />Machine stops every 5-20 minutes per cycle, displaying PF (power failure.) This is after one year plus one month of use. The warranty was only for one year. I'm very disappointed because I've had excellent experience with Kenmore appliances in past years. I suppose it's the new technology. Why is new tech so great while it's so expensive and unreliable? Replacement parts are Three Weeks out and I can't yet be sure they are the ones that will fix the problem. <br />Secondly, with new tech in this machine, the water fills a little bit at a time, spins, fills some more, etc. In my old house, there's a huge water hammer sound thumping through the walls each time the water fill stops. And yes, I do have water hammer arrestors installed.<br />Lastly, when I first got the machine, I put too much soap in on a few loads. This machine spits out the excess soapy water in order to protect itself(?) I recommend new purchasers have their machines installed on wide, weight-rated, non-molding blocks in order to be able to fit your mop under the machine to mop up the soapy excess water, in case you make the same mistake adjusting to the minimal soap mentality.
