The Elite 41072 is manufactured by Kenmore Appliances. Kenmore is a brand sold exclusively at Sears stores, and its products are manufactured by a variety of companies, including LG, Panasonic, GE and Whirlpool.
The Kenmore Elite 41072 is essentially a redesigned version of the LG WM8000HVA. Like the model on which it is based, the Elite 41072 offers the largest space of any consumer machine at 5.2 cubic feet. It also has a simply designed user interface. As of 2013, it retails at $1,649, but Sears often has weekly sales on its washing and dryer machines, especially models more than a year old.
