I am embarrassed to admit that I've owned 2 of these.  The 1st lasted 5 years, the 2nd lasted less than two years.  And Sears wouldn't even waive the diagnosis fee to have it looked at.  I will NEVER buy another Kenmore appliance.

This workhorse stands the test of time!


I don't understand all the other negative reviews for this machine - I've had mine for a dozen years and it's still going strong! I love it! The front loading "tumble action" really does clean clothes gently and yet more thoroughly than any top loader...

Kenmore 3.1 cu ft (4041) front load washer


I have had this model Kenmore washer for 8 years. It has worked fairly well over the years. I know some people are used to old washers running for 20 years... but I find it hard to believe anything lasting that long today. In 2002 i bought the washer...

Kenmore Frontload Washer has problems

lasted less than 5 years. Do not buy a front loader.


The front loader is not a long lasting product.  The bearing and suspension/stabilization system went out in less than 5 years.  The repairman said this is common... pretty much the norm.  Although the front loader is popular, the technology is not...

Washer doesn't provide expected service.


I bought this washer 6 years ago on sale because my daughter had one and liked it.  Last year I would notice that occasionally the clothes still had water in them.  I would rerun the spin cycle and it would seem to be ok.  This began to happen more...

Don't buy this machine


I was tired, my washer had just broken, so I went straight to Sears and bought this Kenmore - no research, no Google-ing, just total trust in the Kenmore name.  This was a mistake.  In just over a year the motor control unit died.  The cost to replace...
