Kenmore Elite Dishwasher / do not buy kenmore

MN, United States Review updated:

In October of 2017, I purchased the Kenmore Elite Ultra WASH Dishwasher Model #665*. In March of 2017, after less than 5 years I had to make a $400 repair to it. It had started to get noisy and then simply stopped working. The tech had to replace the pump motor and a drain pump. Now, after only another 12 months, it has stopped working completely. A call to Sears gave me two options... 1. they would give me 50% off on the service call, no saying what the repair might cost me or 2. buy a service contract for $300 and see if it can be fixed. Wow, what a choice!!! This is on top of the repairs that we have made to all of our other Kenmore appliances purchased for our new home in the fall of 2017. We have fixed the refrigerator, washing machine, dryer and now the dishwasher is broken for the 2nd time. I originally chose Kenmore because my old washer/dryer were still working great after 18 years. I will not buy Kenmore again!!!

    My husband purchased a sears elite (more expensive) which he thought better for me as a surprise moving into our new home. However at first one button on the front panel fell off and i glued it back on now all of them are cracked and falling off so my expensive dishwasher now looks awful and now im not sure what some of the buttons are for. I phoned sears and they said I need to order the whole panel which was upwards of 250.00. I explained tot he lady that I could possibly buy another dishwasher for not much more she laughed and apologized and asked was there anything she could help with. So it appears as if they are going to be no help. The dishwasher works fine if i knew what buttons to use. There has been several notes on the same type of dishwasher when i searched the information
