Bought a Kenmore dishwasher in March of 2012.Just two of us in the house so I only ran it twice a week after rinsing all dishes well, just to clean and sterilize.
In May 2013 it broke. I had been throwing away almost daily solicitations for extended warranty not wanting to pay more for already expensive DW. Called and got the warranty for $142 for one year. Repair scheduled.
Just to come out $75 but they told me what they did would have cost me $373. For someone whose previous DW lasted 25 years, fridge over 25 years, dryer over 15 years I think it is awful that this appliance broke in 14 months after very light and careful usage. They don't make them like they used to. Sensors, computers, whatever.
I think they are designed to break down quickly to generate the repair income. I will also mention poor customer service last year in scheduling delivery, not showing up, a rep arguing with me about the scheduled date like it was my problem and calling me ignorant.
I will NEVER buy from Sears ever again.I tell everyone I know to avoid them.
Review about: Sears Repair.
Monetary Loss: $142.
