The Kenmore 4041 is an expensive, low-end front-load washing machine. The Kenmore 4041 washing machine can handle a 3.1 cu foot load size; which Kenmore quotes to be equivalent to a maximum of 15 bath towels. The biggest feature of the 4041 model is the Energy Star qualification and Energy Guide functions; Kenmore claims this allows users to save up to 45% more energy and 35% more water than any traditional top load washer. The only problem foreseen with this claim is the fact that most washing machines on the market today are also Energy Star certified. The Kenmore 4041 device also features a 950 RPM max spin speed which lessens the overall total drying time of washed fabrics; Kenmore claims the speed enables the device to be "extremely efficient". The 4041 machine includes additional features such as a stainless steel wash basket, a steel body design adorned with a professional white painted finish, full rotary setting controls, 4 separate water temperatures, 6 different wash cycles, a dispenser that can handle detergent, bleach and fabric softener, permanent press support, and special sound signals at end cycle and load times.
A very wide array of reviews have also stated that this device does not last more than 4-5 years and the total cost of the replacement parts and service charge add to more than the original cost of the device.
