Kenmore Elite 41472 4.0 cu. ft. White Front Loading Washer With Steam Review
A 38 minute Normal cycle, great stain removal and easy-to-use control panel make the Kenmore Elite 41472 washer a good value, even with its $1293 MSRP.
If you've ever doubted that a remix could be better than the original, let us present to you the Kenmore Elite 41472. Sears has given the full Skrillex treatment to the LG WM3470HVA — keeping the best parts and making improvements where necessary.
The result is a high-end washer that can get a load of clothes remarkably clean in 38 minutes. Yes, it's pretty expensive for a clothes washer ($1299 MSRP, around $1150 on sale), but consider that the Kenmore's Accela-Wash will save you about 20 minutes over comparable machines on every normal cycle. If you do three washes a week, that's an hour of free time a week for you to do something other than laundry — and more than ten days of extra time saved over the course of five years.
On all other cycles, the Kenmore Elite 41472 did a very good job getting stains out of clothes, and it managed to remain energy efficient as well. It's that rare appliance that's both expensive and worth every penny, and its all because Kenmore dropped the bass.
