Pros: fabric softener and bleach dispensers, hand wash setting

Cons: none

My mom had this washing machine and I LOVED it. So of course when I went to buy ours it is the first I looked at.

It features various water levels, not just small, medium, large. The various wash settings are great, it has cotten, permanent press, delicate and hand wash. This last setting has saved me so much time on hand wash or dry clean items. I can through my daughter's crib bumpers into the washing machine without them bunching up. It also has a heavy duty or permanent press setting for the timing. In addition it features a pre wash and pre soak setting, I don't know how many hundreds of times I have had to use these with 2 kids. The extra large capacity is great, allowing me to do bigger loads, thus getting through that dreaded laundry quicker and not having to do it as often. It also has an automatic fabric softener and bleach dispensers. Thank you for those, I would never have the time to babysit my washer so I can add fabric softener at the right time.

Ours have held up great, it is now 1.5 years old and still runs like new. My mom's is over 3 years old and still runs like new too. Though we both purchased the warranty plan so a maintanance man came out once a year to give it a check up. I just love Kenmore products.

Who ever did has not taken care of a large family before. When you are a divorced father and you need to do all of the housework yourself, you need a very dependable machine to take care of all the washing. It's not like you have to go out and beat your clothes on a rock or something, this …
