“Go ahead and tear up your cloths”

Written on: 18/01/2014

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

“Very Noisy”

Written on: 09/12/2013

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

“Nothing But Problems”

Written on: 02/04/2013 by unhappypurchase1 (1 review written)

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”

Written on: 29/10/2012

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

“Avoid this machine”

Written on: 17/09/2012 by laundrydisaster (1 review written)

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

“This washer has lasted me 12 years. Still going strong!”

Written on: 05/07/2012 by wtbsmom (1 review written)

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

“Bad Quality Kenmore 600 series”

Written on: 15/09/2011 by karlkeng (1 review written)

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

“What's american about sears? nothing!”

Written on: 16/06/2011

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...”

Written on: 20/04/2011

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

Written on: 06/12/2010

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

“First Complaint: Clothes washed on Normal, Gentle, &...”

Written on: 30/11/2010

First Complaint: Clothes washed on Normal, Gentle, & Delicate cycles were very wet after the completion of the spin cycle(s); water would run, as it would during the fill portion of the wash/rinse cycles, during the beginning of those three spin cycles. {which made no sense to me!?!} This greatly extended my drying times! Only the Heavy Duty cycle didn't have running water during the beginning of the spin cycle; allowing clothes to spin, as they should, to only a damp feel.
Second Complaint… Read Full Review

I love my washer and dryer. I love that I can even wash my comforters in them instead of going to a cleaners. They run good, get the job done good and I haven't had a problem yet. I'm not expecting a mute washer and dryer so I wouldn't say its loud- they obviously have to make noise… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/08/2010

My first two washers lasted me 20 years each (Kenmore and KitchenAid. I now have a Kenmore 600, after having Sears take back the awful 800 that I purchased the month before. The 600 is better than the 800 as far as doing its job, however the agitator makes a very loud chunk-chunk noise. It is much louder the first 5 mins,then decreases in noise after that, but still louder than any washer I had before. They dryer is an 800 and sounds like there is a pair of shoes in it when running. I spoke… Read Full Review

“We will never buy Kenmore again. We've only had this...”

Written on: 10/08/2010

We will never buy Kenmore again. We've only had this washer and dryer less than 3 years. The timer on the washer broke and we had to pay about $150 to have it fixed (it happened after the 1 year warranty expired). The dryer was loud so we had someone come look at it recently and it was off-balance and we had to pay another $150 to fix the drum rollers. Now, the dryer isn't drying. We're getting rid of these and switching to LG dryers. I understand these aren't top of the line, but they… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/08/2010

I haven't noticed any noise coming from the washer and dryer and I've had mine for over a year. They are installed in the bathroom right across from my bedroom. I would have returned them immediately if I had any problems. They come with a one year manufacturer warranty. I haven't had any problems. They run great! Even with big loads. I don't know if other people who reviewed this just got bad products or something. But if they were that loud or you had that many problems...why not… Read Full Review

“ The wife and I have owned a Kenmore w/d set for yrs....”

Written on: 27/06/2010

The wife and I have owned a Kenmore w/d set for yrs. When they finally gave out we bought the 600 series. We looked at all the front load models, but decided they were just way more than we wanted to spend. The 600 series was perfect. It had more than enough features cycles for us. Yes you can hear it wash clothes but it does not seem to be as loud as some have claimed hear.

In my opinion a lot of people here just don't seem to realize they didn't buy the high end set. This is a good BASIC… Read Full Review
