“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

“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

“Horrible!!”

Written on: 06/06/2016 by Schmidt46 (1 review written)

This machine is a piece of junk. Makes loud banging noises, leaves white powdery stains on my dark clothing, only washes very small loads. Forget washing towels, sheets, or jeans! It can't handle large loads. Don't waste your time or money!!… 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

“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

“Want Wrinkled Clothes?”

Written on: 10/10/2015 by Bryant141 (1 review written)

This machine creates the worse wrinkles I've ever seen from a washing machine. Dry fit clothes are the worse. This has to do with the spinning speed which cannot be adjusted. DO NOT BUY… Read Full Review

“Not a washer!”

Written on: 02/01/2015 by SloaneDaniel144 (1 review written)

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

Doesnotwork's Comment

Written on: 03/09/2015

I wish I'd read this before we got this washer and dryer! We had to get some in an emergency, so who knew they really made a washer that DOESN'T wash clothes! I was trying every little thing I could think of to get better results. Today the salesman told me NOT to ever use the Heavy Duty setting, but to use the Bulky/bedding setting and that would allow more water to be used. What it does is merely redistribute dirt from the dirtier items to everything else in the load. We are going to take them back. I miss my old Maytag. It could get everything clean!

“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
