I purchased a Kenmore Dishwasher barely over 1 year ago. We had our fist problem less than 5 months after owning the dishwasher. They told us that a thermostat burnt out and they replaced it. Now 1 month after the warranty ran out the thermostat went out again. Sears refused to help me without charging me a service charge and a charge for the part. I believe that the thermostat is not the reason that we keep having this problem there has to be something else causing the thermostat to burn out. I even had one associate from sears agree with me that the thermostat was not the problem, but the refuse to go back and fix the issue. I will never buy another sears or Kenmore product again. Buyer beware Kenmore and sears product have gone downhill since the merger with kmart.
Do not buy Kenmore products!
