Comment:
We have only had this washer for a month but with that being said, I am happy with this purchase. We have a family of four and use this washer regularly. I was skeptical at first that this type of washer might not wash the clothes as well as my old agitator washer (because the water line comes only about half way up the pile of clothes) but it has cleaned perfectly my very muddy gardening clothes and kids sport outfits. It does make funny sounds but is overall quieter than my previous washer. My only complaint is that some of the cycles take a very long time but I have realized this is typical with the newer style efficient washers. I wish the engineers could work on that!
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
We've owned a Kenmore 2800 series washer for 2 1/2 years. It's been repaired three times during this period. It first stopped operating properly after about a year and a half, and has continued to be an unreliable washer having had to be repaired two more times in less than three years of ownership. An unreliable washer. Not recommended.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

This washer never spun the clothes very dry at all. It broke completely in less than 2 years. Per sears it would cost me a $180 part to fix myself.
