The manual says:
Limited Lifetime Warranty on Stainless Steel Drum: For the lifetime of the washer from the date of purchase, Sears will replace the Stainless Steel wash drum due to defective material or workmanship. After the first year, you will be charged for labor.
This is a completely meaningless warranty. Sears will not replace the part - They will send a Technician out to do it for $750. A new improved machine is available today for $598.
Some people got a service rep that felt companies should honor warranties, but the ruling is entirely up to the service rep you get. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/washer-repair/5Q9ZgwmnuM8
