Brand Story

Kenmore was first known as a producer of drop feed sewing machines. The brand quickly became recognizable and trusted due to the high quality of its products. The first Kenmore washing machines were presented on the market more than a decade later in 1927.

In 1936 around a million laundry items branded as Kenmore were sold. The company became even more popular after the World War II when more than 95% of American homes became electrified.

Sears, the owner of the Kenmore brand, made its washers popular, paying much attention to the design of the produced models. There were limited lines with coral-red, yellow, aquamarine and other bright colors alongside standard white-colored washers.
