Kenmore Heavy Duty Model #110 Washer. How do they define heavy duty? Could it be by the weight of the load? It seems these models can handle alot. I just washed 4 pairs of jeans, and 4 shirts in one load with no problem! I have a large bedspread, a throw rug, a pair of sweatpants and some shirts in now.

** How do they define heavy duty? **

I think you'll find almost all North American top load washers are marked "Heavy Duty" except portable ones. Go to an appliance store and see if you can find one not marked as such.

It is a joke in the appliance service industry and actually means very little, just another marketing term.

Thanks danO for the reply. In addition to the marketing strategy, this model is also labeled, "large capacity". I would think heavy duty and large capacity go hand-in-hand. I have alway's had good luck with the Kenmore brand. They seem to really last, and parts are readily available.........Tom

Yes, both marketing terms although "large capacity" might help to differentiate it from a "super capacity" model (if they happen to have such a thing) or from a "small capacity" model. All of which may still be heavy duty in the company's opinion.
