Aug 8, 2004 we purchased a top of line Kenmore Elite Dishwasher along with a Kenmore refrigerator. The dishwasher worked great until Sep 2006 when we could not change cycles on the control board any longer. The warranty for the circuit board was over in Aug 2006. To replace the circuit board alone is $300.00. It appears that the circuit board is not properly sealed against water for when we unscrewed this area, water ran out. So water was getting to the circuit board somehow. Of course Sears won't touch it unless we pay. So now in Nov 2007, there is one one wash cycle that works and it doesn't work very well, we have set the darn thing by the curb and have purchased a GE basic dishwasher as we already have over $700.00 invested in this piece of junk. We also have a fanstatic tsory about the refrigerator we purchased which was a Kenmore as well. Let's just say we have put over $500.00 during years 2 and 3. we will never buy Kenmore again.
