My Review 

This machine at a sale price of $550.99 with a $191 installation charge lasted less than 2 years. The control panel burned out!! This is a small household of 2 people who occasionally have dinner parties. I called the Sears Parts and Repair Center and was told that there was a flat fee of $129.00 to walk in the door and the control panel was $127.00 bringing us to a total of $256.00 and that was if there were no additional problems!

Now I ask you, would you put this kind of money, nearly half the original price, into a machine that was only 2 years old? Of course, I did not buy the extended warranty at the time of purchase.

We are now the proud owners of a Bosch and we love it. I will NEVER buy a single Kenmore product again. We also hate our Kenmore fridge, but that is another story.
