Sears Friends and Family - HE Top Load Washer/Dryer

HouseMan2February 9, 2011

Sears Friends and Family - Washer/Dryer

Is the F&F 15% off ALL appliances typically the same type of sale they have for all major holidays like MLK?

When is the next F&F sale...February or March?

Moving to a new home and needing to order a washer and dryer sometime in March.

Are all of these essentially the same? If so, does it make more sense to get the Kenmore brand because they offer 30% instead of the typical 15% off all other appliances:

Kenmore Elite White 5.0 cu. ft. High Efficiency Top-Load Washer(Model#29002)

Reg Price: $924.99

Savings: $277.50


Maytag White 5.0 cu. ft. Top-Load Washing Machine (MVWB750W)

Reg Price: $899.99

Savings: $135.00


Whirlpool White 5.0 cu. ft. Capacity Top-Load Washer Model# WTW7300XW

Reg Price: $799.99

Savings: $120.00


and then there is also this one:

Whirlpool White 5.2 cu. ft. I.E.C. Capacity Top-Load Washer Model# WTW7600XW

Reg Price: $899.99

Savings: $200.00


Also, better to get or pass on the extended warranty for HE Top-Loader Washers and Dryers?

Prices for the machines aside, Sears warranties are usually ridulously priced and you are stuck dealing with Sears for service. In some places their service has become terrible. Check before you buy (not with Sears). Other stores may have similar prices, better return policies and more service options. Do your homework.

Thanks, which is why I posted here.

Anyone own any of these that can provide some feedback?

The Kenmore model is sourced from LG.

The Maytag and Whirlpools are siblings, based on Fisher & Paykel mechanical design using their SmartDrive motor.

LG uses a similar motor.

You can see parts diagrams by model number search at or Whirlpool's site under Owner Center / Manuals & Literature.

The Kenmore model number referenced, 29002, is not the full number.

Kenmore 796.29002010
Maytag MVWB750W
Whirlpool WTW7300XW
Whirlpool WTW7600XW

Thanks for the feedback, but how do they actually compare. Any real difference between one to other or just go with the cheapest of the group?

So which is a better pricing at Sears; one of the holidays like the upcoming Washington�s Birthday or their Friends and Family?
