The best features of a Kenmore Elite washer include the 41073 front loader's 14 cycles, handling of fabrics and its capacity to wash jumbo loads, according to Consumer Reports. This model works with up to 26 pounds of laundry at a time and uses smartphone transmission as a troubleshooting method.
The Kenmore Elite 41073 front loader also provides multiple wash options. For example, its accelerated wash feature allows clothes to be washed up to 20 minutes faster than its 95-minute heavy-soil setting.
The Kenmore Elite 31462 model uses steam treatment to remove deep stains. It also features accelerated washing technology and uses an allergen cycle to eliminate what Kenmore says is more than 95 percent of common allergens such as dust.
