I have tried every detergent on the market. Doesn't matter. This machine Kenmore Series 600 HE is a piece of junk! It doesn't clean clothes! It leaves wet lint, clothes fibers all over the laundry. I would NEVER purchase another one… Read Full Review

My mother-in-law was looking for new machine and loved Kenmore products. Worst decision we ever made. Does NOT clean your clothes. I'd have been better to beat them against a rock. I cannot believe how many wrinkles are in my clothes afterwards. Just horrible!! I hope you enjoy ironing even your socks if you buy this washer. Almost ready to go buy anything used with an agitator, it has to be better than this. Very sad Kenmore for taking my money and shame on you Sears for selling this sham of a… Read Full Review

When I think of the word "washer," there are some basic characteristics that come to mind. At the top of the list are the concepts of water and clothes being cleaned. In addition to the myriad of other characteristics of a washer that this machine does not possess, this Kenmore Series 600 High Efficiency device does not add water or clean clothes. It's absurdly ineffective! Any feature of a washer that you may be looking for will NOT be found in this machine. You will have no idea how long… Read Full Review

After reading several of the posted reviews, I started to get a headache I only wash cloths on the Delicate cycle for fear of destroying my cloths. The style of agitator on this machine seems to beat the cloths and rip them. From what I hear from most of you posting here, I can see why such a long term company in the US can get into serious trouble with competing for business. No wonder sears and K-mart keep closing stores across the country. They have lost their quality control standards… Read Full Review

This machine is loud, noisy grinding sounds when washing and big clinks when it switches cycles. The lid locks so it's not easy to add an item once cycle has started. Even when installed perfectly level it vibrates a lot and the wash takes longer than other machines. Not happy, I'm returning the monstrosity for another model… Read Full Review

I purchased the Kenmore 600 Washer and Dryer in April, 2008. It is the washer that is a piece of junk. The dryer works just fine. The first two years the washer worked and then it has been nothing but problems. Thankfully I purchased the Master Protection Plan which in the end paid for all the headaches. The most recent problem is that it won't go into the spin cycle. Have to constantly turn the dial and open and close the lid to get it to engage when it does. Everything now requires two… Read Full Review

Never again willi buy another Kenmore appliance. This washer is horrible. It is very loud. The spin cycle never completes itself leaving the clothes still very wet, so my drying time is expanded. Will be selling even though I have only had it 1 1/2 years. Wasted money… Read Full Review

When this machine comes to the spin cycle it just hums but doesn't spin the water out of the clothes. It just sits there!!! Then the rinse cycle starts and it hasn't expelled the first wash water yet. You have to "open the lid and close it each time it goes to spin out to start the next cycle. If you miss it it just sits and hums . I had a repair man out "since it has done it since it was BRAND NEW....but it didn't do it while he was here so he fixed nothing....even though I told him what it… Read Full Review

It is a bit on the noisy side, but its a great washer and gets my clothes very clean. Its the first and only washer I've ever owned. I got it as a gift from my mom when I was 19 and I'm 31 now. I'll be selling it soon due to moving sadly, but its been a fantastic washer. The 600 dryer lasted me 10 years before it had to be replaced 2 years ago… Read Full Review

I bought this Kenmore 600 series 4 years ago and had given me series of problems so far: First off, the cycle knob broke. Luckily, the sales guy insisted that I have to buy warranty. Secondly, the timer broke after the warranty. Thirdly, I am currently having power intermittent problem on all cycles. The water level knob is stiff. The washer is noisy compared to my old washer. Looks like this machine gives me trouble annually. Can't use it right now due to current intermittent power problem… Read Full Review

I have purchased the 600 series and have used it for exactly 12 months. The washer is loud, the spin leaves your clothes wet, The hot water never worked from day one. I have always had to wash in cold, thought it was my issue until I checked out other reviews. Today the water dumped into the washer without stopping flooding my house. When removing the hoses from the back of the washer there are small broken pieces in the opening like something has broken. This is cheap, cheap, cheap workmanship… Read Full Review

When I bought this machine it was supposed to be quiet. This machine is so noisy, it actually knocks when it is washing. This machine shakes so bad and seems to be out of balance. I have had 3 repair men in and they find nothing wrong other than it is a floor problem. I have lived in this house over 40 years and this is the 1st machine to ever do this. The water doesn't get hot. When you put on hot you have lukewarm water. It just cost me $140.00 for a repair man to tell me there is… Read Full Review

Cloths come out almost dry from washer which means less time in dryer. Am very satisfied with both washer & dryer.
I bought a more expensive washer & dryer and not as satisfied as with Kenmore 600 series.
Very easy to use… Read Full Review

1) The warm water option doesn't work. The water is cool.
2) I have to run the spin cycle twice most of the time. It doesn't wring the water out of the wash very well.
3) I spoke to customer service and they claim that I'm probably not using the right load option. I tried it many ways and I'm still having the same problem. CS said if they send a service person to check it out and he doesn't find anything wrong they would charge me $150.
I had a Kenmore washer and dryer before for more… Read Full Review
