“Piece of junk”

Written on: 27/05/2017 by Butkus (1 review written)

I had a Kenmore front loader for 15 years so I replaced it with a Kenmore top loader series 600. Worst mistake ever. Washer won'the complete the cycle. I have tried everything. It just gets stuck in the rinse spin cycle. Have to stop the washer, unplug it for at least two hours, plug it back in and then run it through the clean cycle. If I'm lucky it will work for a week. It's only my husband and myself so we only wash twice a week. I will never buy another Kenmore. Also it leaves white streaks… Read Full Review

“Worst washing machine EVER”

Written on: 04/05/2017 by Wyatt323 (1 review written)

This is the worst washing machine I've ever had. All my dark clothes come out covered in white EVERY time. I've tried different detergents, using hardly any detergent, turning my clothes inside out. Nothing stops the white residue on my clothes. I have to put the dark clothes in again, every time for an additional rinse, and sometimes that doesn't help. I've been washing clothes for 40 years, never had such a frustrating experience. Don't buy this top loading waste of time and money… Read Full Review

“Hate, hate, hate it”

Written on: 05/03/2017 by gcGorman216 (1 review written)

So sad I bought this washer. Doesn't clean clothes no matter what you do. Double rinse doesn't rinse everything out, washing many times doesn't get things clean, is very loud, takes forever, clothes are wrinkled and still dirty or sometimes come out with stains that weren't there before! Please don't buy this washer. You will not be happy… Read Full Review

OMG! Me too. Black clothes and jeans come out with white stuff on them. Don't know what it is. Keep thinking soap but my soap is blue and the stains are white. You have to wash them over and over again with no soap to get the soap (white stuff) and sometimes that doesn't work. I've had to throw away quite a few things including, brand new jeans. As we speak I am rewashing a pair of dress pants to get the white off. It is also, very loud. I went to add a garment today mid wash cycle, never done that before, the water level was so low it didn't even cover the laundry. Probably why our clothes are clean.

I've owned this washer since Nov 2016. Should have returned when I could. Clothes are still stained after washing, not enough water, lints on the clothes after cycle, sometimes clothes on top have dry spots and doesn't seem to get wash, and I've seen holes on the clothes. Was very disappointed with this washer! … Read Full Review

“my first bad Sears washer in 60 yr”

Written on: 09/01/2017 by Morganlt37 (1 review written)

I am 82 yrs old . Had always had Sears washer. Bougnt the 600S, Ny clothes are still stained and are smelly. My husband deo has a good smell but its still there after being washed. We have small amount of clothes now so when I wash a few whites as I have done for many years with no problem, they are not clean. I have watched the whole cycle and you can't even see the water. The book says they are cleaned by rubbing together. It makes me so sad to know this will probably be my last washer… Read Full Review

“Smelly clothes and takes too long!”

Written on: 06/10/2016 by alanie01 (1 review written)

A lot of our appliacances are Kenmore, so we trusted the brand. I like that I can set the washer to start later, like an hour or two up to 12. That way I can go grocery shopping and when I get back the washer will still be on. My complaint is that I'm not supposed to cover the center (there's no stick anymore) where there's a metal button. If it gets covered, (which naturally happens) like when I wash sheets and blankets, it won't drain. It'll actually take more time by re-rinsing and not… Read Full Review

“I wouldn't recommend the Series 600 washer to an enemy”

Written on: 30/09/2016 by DSCITCHR (1 review written)

It is supposedly "energy efficient" but it appears to be dirt efficient. It keeps all the dirt, lint, cat or dog hair in the washer and deposits it on everything in the washer. It has ruined blankets, throws, mattress pads and couch covers by sticking everything to them instead of rinsing it off. I took a towel washed by my 17 year old washer and one washed by the 600 into Sears and the old towel was visibly cleaner. Sears just told me if they came out to check it, I would have to pay if… Read Full Review

“Disgusted”

Written on: 22/07/2016 by Agitated (1 review written)

Owned less than a year and this is the worst washing machine I have ever owned. It is loud, dark clothes have streaks on them and lint after washing, the panels sweats when you use the hot water feature and the biggest thing that pisses me off is how my towels STINK like they have been in the machine for a week before dying them. Have tried vinegar, washing them in cold water, no downy, washing multiple timess, smaller loads, 8 towels lol and they still Stink. This machine does not put any… Read Full Review

I had the same problem! Stinky towels! We thought it was our water softener. We never thought it could be the machine since it was new. We even had the water softener technician come by to let some chlorine into our water. I ended up buying new towels.

“H in Pleasanton”

Written on: 19/07/2016 by hyTaylor49 (1 review written)

Bought a new washer and dryer set from Sears a few months ago. The washer tears up everything (mostly dish towels) and the dryer takes forever to dry. The tops of both machines are slanted toward the front so you cannot sit a clothes basket on top or it will fall off when the appliance is running. VERY disappointed… Read Full Review

“Hate it!!!!”

Written on: 12/07/2016 by Skyler419 (1 review written)

Since day one I've been so disappointed with this machine. It leaves white powdery streaks and spots on dark clothes. The darks come out looking worse than when they went in. I thought it was our hard water and have tried different additives to soften the water. Nothing has helped. Stay far away from this machine! The day I bought this, I was in a pinch. Our old machine had broken and it wasn't worth fixing. I was swamped at the time and didn't have time to do research and needed a machine… Read Full Review

“Stuck with a machine that doesn't clean clothes”

Written on: 18/03/2016

We missed the month return time allowance. We are stuck with the most ridiculous washing machine I have ever used in 40 years. All complaints are true, no water, (bed sheets actually remain dry) lint, ruining fabrics, I have holes in new clothing. Sears has failed us after 40 years of many large purchases and being a faithful customer. The deep fill is a joke, only the bulky bedding will give some water but is hard on fabric. The machine weighs dry clothes so the repairman said to wet them… Read Full Review

“Clothes Not Clean”

Written on: 10/03/2016 by EstrellaLarsen (1 review written)

I have used this machine less than two years and have not been happy with it from the beginning. My greatest frustration is that it leaves dirty residue on the dark clothes. I have to assume what I see on the dark clothes just isn't visible on the lighter colors since it's powdery white. I tried using the "two rinces" cycle and smaller loads, even decreased amount of soap. NOTHING helped. The dryer has been fine but I hate this washer. No more Kenmore for me… Read Full Review

“Lent catcher”

Written on: 20/02/2016 by Alliep1979 (1 review written)

Piece of Junk. Clothes come out streaked with gummed up combo of lent and soap. Have to re-wash dark clothes by hand. Service from Sears is the worst. Paid sub-contractors try to tell all these secret things to get the machine to work right. None of the tips are in the manual. Service guy came out and did nothing except say use less soap. Still no good. Go to the Goodwill and buy a machine with 2 knobs and no flashing lights. … Read Full Review

Have you tried those Tide pods? We used to use liquid Tide but clothes and towels kept having a bad smell, like rotten eggs or like they were left wet overnight. The smell went away I thinks since we switched to the more expensive pods. I also bought new towels, and I've washed them many times. No bad smell anymore.

“Buy Something Else”

Written on: 17/01/2016 by shawnhastings (1 review written)

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
