Model # 11047789701
Ser # CSU 4409110
Defective Part # W10156252
Per The Sears's parts department (Defective Part # W10156252) is only available to me if I pay for a technician to come and visit me at a cost of 130.00 plus 111.00 for the part. This is due to the fact that my part is no longer available and preferential treatment for the remaining parts goes to service appointments. I was told for only another 80.00 I could get an extended warranty in case it breaks again. We take great care of our washer that was top of the line sears carried 3.5 years ago. I have gone on line and seen that this has been an ongoing problem (error sud the error f35) for years. I am dissatisfied that a washer so new would not have parts available unless I'm willing to pay a 130.00 service call. Shame on Sears. I have been a loyal Sears customer for decades but this is unacceptable customer service.
P.S. I also found on line that my defective water level control switch (part# W10156252) has a replacement part (W10415587) available at sears for 84.35 but no one in the parts department will tell you that. There only option is for a technician to come and visit me at a cost of 130.00 plus 111.00 for the part.
