I bought my dishwasher and 2 weeks after the warranty ran out it broke down. It is not on the recall list, so basically, I can pay 300 to fix it or go buy a new one - not the elite, Kenmore, - and pay an extra 200 for a new appliance. Wasteful in my eyes and this should be a 5-10 year appliance. Are we getting cheaper products so we spend more? I would think, and I did say think, waste not want not… What message is Kenmore sending?
