CNET First Look
This large Kenmore washer cleans upKenmore's Elite 31633 has a huge 6.2 cubic-foot capacity and cleans better than the other top load washers we've tested so far.
[MUSIC]. This $1530 top load Kenmore model is excellent in a lot of different ways. Of course, the price is one potential setback, but it's Is currently available on Sears for $915 so don't let the high end price scare you right off the bat. Here's what I love about this. It has a very high end design, it has very simple, intuitive controls, they're a little on the sensitive side so think more like controlling a smart phone than actually pushing a button. It also has Great, great stain removal. So if you have a lot of stains, if you're dealing with grass stains or other big stains in your laundry, this will definitely handle it. And it has a 6.2 cubic foot capacity. So, for reference, most Most models have about 4.5 cubic feet. And that's enough to handle an eight pound load of laundry, which is pretty standard for most folks. With 6.2 cubic feet, you could do at least double that, easy no problem. So, this is an awesome model For large families. So all together I would recommend this Kenmore model, it is pricey, but you can find it on Sears for much less like I said. And it's definitely the one I would put in my house if I could fit it in my laundry room.
