Moved into a new place and I wanted the HE Kenmore matching washer/dryer with the pedestals. However, the area where the washer/dryer will go will not allow these front loaders to be raised. (like the set I had 5 years ago that were awesome. Kenmore HE front loaders on pedestals) I got some good help from Experts, but I got so confused about what companies are making what machines now. Also, not clear on some topics the Experts raised about making sure I get a certain washer so that I can reach an area that collects coins and other things that were in the pockets of cloths. I will need to get the top loaders, even know I thought the Kenmore HE spinning capability in the machines I had 5 years ago was top notch. What is a top of the line as far as the basics (no extra bells/whistles) but can hold up to a clean freak and has a great spin cycle and ability to agitate the cloths without getting things caught so they tear. The washer I had 5 years ago, did not have anything in the middle of the washer and I guess that was because it was a front loader. Do they have top loaders that are HE and do just as good of a job as what one of the first Kenmore HE washer that came out did? No need to do a lot of laundry at once, but like extra rinse cycle and a great spin cycle to save on the drying. I would like to get the matching set online at Sears and have it delivered and installed (if they still do that). Are the stainless steel braided water hoses worth getting? The dryer needs to be electric and the power outlet has 3-prongs (if I am saying that correctly. I am not a fan of Whirlpool, but I loved the great machine I had about 5 years ago that was made by Kenmore, was a front loader, HE, and had the best spin cycle that the dryer had to hardly ever work very much.
Prefer white. Prefer a set that was built to go together. Not a fan of a lot of options, but I do like the double rinse option, water level selector, not super sensitive with the off balance, not sure about top loaders, but because of space, I think I am forced to go with a top loader, unless I do not put them on pedestals.
