I really like this washing machine; it's only drawback is my drain pump keeps freezing and should be replaced. They put the filter, that needs to be cleaned regularly in a very inaccessible place. If you don't keep it clean, it ruins the drain pump=more $$ for Kenmore (my opinion) in either replacement parts and service or a whole new machine. Parts are so expensive many people opt to just replace the machine instead of fixing them. We finally just left the front 'access' panel off so we can clear the drain pump and filter easily and now the pump rarely stops working.
