My kenmore was great for years, and then as soon as it was out of warranty things started to go. I ended up having over $1,000 of fixes to it made, and had to put it all on my credit cards. I loved my kenmore appliances, but I'm not sure I would feel confident buying them again.
My Kenmore Gas range has been a constant source of malfunctioning from the very beginning. The display has never worked properly, and the Sears repair people have been out to repair it many times. It is now 3 years old and does not work at all. I will never buy a Kenmore product again.
