I totally forgot the closure to my complaint and my main point...Not only have the buttons been falling off, but last week the entire dishwasher stopped working and just died. Now, we have to replace the dishwasher that we have had for only about 3-4 years. What a terrible experience with SEARS and this KENMORE product.

We purchased a Kenmore Dishwasher (Model 665.13732K601) when we remodeled approximately 4 years ago.The dishwasher has done a good job cleaning, but after the first year the buttons started falling off the control panel.
A few of the buttons that fell off were even ones that we never even touched so it wasn't from them being used too much!! The buttons are a plastic overlay panel and cannot just be put back on. The entire plastic panel would need to be replaced at a parts cost of $95.00, which doesn't include labor.
This dishwasher is poorly made and I would never purchase another appliance (especially a Kenmore) from SEARS ever again.I will take my business elsewhere and to someone who will stand behind their products.
Monetary Loss: $500.
