“Everything Newlsoncarol Said! Does NOT WASH WELL!”

Written on: 24/04/2022 by Charlie51T (1 review written)

We have had this washer six years, and never been happy with it. Not broken; "just" doesn't clean clothes well. Black clothing gets white residue, no matter the way we clean it. We add extra water to it, and fuss with it in various ways. My wife exploded at it today. I looked for reviews, and found Newsoncarol's review that perfectly describes our woes. We are replacing it. Life is too short for such frustration… Read Full Review

“Kenmore 600 washer going strong over 12 yrs”

Written on: 21/04/2022 by 381Bryant (1 review written)

I Bought a GE washer Dryer combo for second home and it started leaking 4 yrs later. Repairman said all GE washers leak after only a few years. Wish Kenmore had washer/dryer combos. My Kenmore 600 washing machine has been going strong for over 12 years, bought a scratch-n-dent at a Sears outlet!… Read Full Review

“Loud! Loud! Loud!”

Written on: 03/08/2021 by spAlmeida496 (1 review written)

I purchased this machine 6 years ago. I normally use something until it breaks, but I might make an exception here. There are always white streaks left on dark clothing. The fabric softener dispenser quit working over a year ago, so I use dryer sheets. My major complaint is the noise. Even with the door shut, we had to put a towel under the door to try to muffle the noise. It sounds like a 747 roaring through the room. Just unbelievable… Read Full Review

“I have had the Kenmore Series 600 machine for over a...”

Written on: 10/08/2020

I have had the Kenmore Series 600 machine for over a year and my hope that I would grow to like it hasn't happened. The opposite is true. I really dislike this machine. My biggest dislike is the horrible wrinkled condition of the clothes after the cycle is finished. Everything is wrinkled beyond belief. My bed sheets are an embarrassment. The machine twists them to a wadded wrung out condition. The dryer has no chance of tumbling out the wrinkles. All the clothes have that same wrung… Read Full Review

“I am so disappointed with this washer. No matter how...”

Written on: 26/05/2020 by nelsoncarol (2 reviews written)

I am so disappointed with this washer. No matter how much or little amount of tide I use, it leaves white streaks on all of my dark colored clothes. My washer has been doing this since I bought it and it is only a few months old. I have to re-wash all of the dark clothes and it is very frustrating. Please either tell me what I can do to fix this problem or give me my money back so I can buy a decent washer… Read Full Review

“Hate it!”

Written on: 19/01/2020 by sillie (1 review written)

I hate this washer. It leaves white streaks all over my dark clothing. I have to use double fill and it still doesn't get rid of the streaks. I miss my old top loader where my clothes came out clean. Sears should give all of us money towards a new washer!… Read Full Review

Nelsoncarol's Response to sillie's Review

Written on: 26/05/2020

I have the exact same problem and it is very frustrating to have to re-wash everything!!! I would never buy another Kenmore product or anything else Sears sells. Someone from Kenmore should tell me what I can do to fix this problem!!

“Worse washer ever owned in 40+ years”

Written on: 25/12/2019 by Jones706 (1 review written)

I purchased the Kenmore 600 series washer because the Kenmore brand was once one of dependability for a reasonable price. After less than 18 months, the washer would light up but would not begin its cycles. The board made a sound when I pressed each "button" but nothing happened. I tried unplugging/replugging, etc. I contacted Kenmore. They wanted $99 to send a repair tech to "check" the washer. I had already "googled" and learned the issue may be the "Motherboard"/computer electronic board… Read Full Review

“Not wetting completely”

Written on: 22/04/2019 by 390Leblanc (1 review written)

The Kenmore Series 600 does not wet each piece thoroughly. I have had complete wash cycles with totally dry spots on some clothing. It does not put enough water in the drum. I end up using deep fill which also is not efficient. I am very dissatisfied with this product. After a lifetime of purchasing Kenmore I will never buy another one… Read Full Review

“Streaks, sounds and dry clothes”

Written on: 25/01/2018 by O'Nealis381 (1 review written)

What a mistake. This washer ALWAYS leaves white streaks on our clothing and there are dry spots on them so that they do not even get wet during washing. It now chirps when working as if a bird is caught in the washer.Will not waste money on fixing the noise .... will replace as soon as I can afford it… Read Full Review

“Horrible Machine!”

Written on: 13/01/2018 by Ace12 (1 review written)

Horrible machine that will leave residue on every load of colored clothing! We have owned this machine for almost 2 years and have hated it since day one! Had a service tech come out due to lint residue after we first bought it and they couldn’t find anything wrong. Complete dry spots on clothing too where there it is obviously not even being touched by water and cleaned. Never ever again will I purchase a Kenmore-terribly disappointed!… Read Full Review

“Should have read these reviews first”

Written on: 07/12/2017 by erdsmom (1 review written)

My complaints are pretty much the same as many of the other reviewers on here. I too wish I had researched this machine before I purchased the duo 1 1/2 yrs. ago at a Sears store. - Tub doesn't fill with enough water to cover most of the clothes. - Everything comes out wrinkled. - Although I use a liquid detergent made for HE washers, dark clothes always come out with white marks all over them. I end up untangling them, putting them back in, and running the rinse cycle 1 or 2 more… Read Full Review

“Regret this purchase ”

Written on: 05/11/2017 by JorgeDean228 (1 review written)

This is the worst experience I’ve had with a wash machine. Can not adjust water level to cover the clothes. Also tried the deep fill and still was not enough water, the agitator would not pull the cloths down, it took 1 hr and 58 minutes to complete one load and would not get the cloths clean. Very disappointing , returned machine and purchased another brand… Read Full Review

“Regret the purchase terribly!”

Written on: 30/09/2017 by ChayaConway (1 review written)

I hate that I didn't look into this more before purchase. I don't feel that my clothes are getting clean. I opened (by pausing of course) to see the level of water . Now I know that it is different from all the other models with the agitator but it should at least put enough water in to cover the clothes . Even in "deep fill" it isn't putting enough even to wash 2 pair of jeans well. I am very displeased… Read Full Review

“Do not purchase this machine!”

Written on: 29/07/2017 by AmiyaRoss440 (1 review written)

My dark clothes come out of this machine full of lint and white detergent all over them. The spin cycle creates the worst wrinkles that requires ironing everything. The detergent and fabric softener dispenser do not work! My washer gets stuck in a continuous rinse cycle. This is the first time I have had such an awful machine. We only initially purchased this machine to support Sears products. What a piece of junk!… Read Full Review

“Worst ever”

Written on: 29/06/2017 by maure123 (1 review written)

This washer has caused nothing but stress and time. I've never had clothes so wrinkled coming from the washer. I have to iron EVERYTHING. This washer does not rinse well at all. It leaves a white residue (which I imagine is the lint from all the clothing) scattered all over the dark clothing which I have to remove by hand and it is very time consuming. I use only a minimal amount of clear detergent when I wash. I try to get rid of it by re-rinsing, but it does not help. We paid over $900 for… Read Full Review
