Sears Complaint - Kenmore Oasis Elite HE Washing Machine. DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK.
We purchased Kenmore Oasis Elite washing machine in 2006, along with the matching dryer and Kenmore stove. From the beginning, the washing machine was EXTREMELY hard on clothes. It basically tears them up. We had to add old towels to each load to 'protect' our clothes.
Next: The washer developed a leak on the left rear corner. It turns out the bleach dispenser tube was 'defective' and cracked in half. $217 later, it was fixed. The repairman noted that the top of the washing machine is already RUSTING!!! Not even 4 years old. Shoddy workmanship and absolutely NO attention to quality.
Now, it appears the 'interface board' is going out. You have to push the Power button 3 times in order to turn the machine on. Cost of this part, not considering labor? $234. DO NOT BUY ANY KENMORE PRODUCTS.
Our stove, just 2 months prior to this, had to have a new mother board. Cost for the $220. We did not use Sears for this, since we could not wait the 10 days for a repairman to come look at it.
Only positive note: The Sears repairman was professional.
Moral of the story: We will Never buy any appliance from Sears, and we share our story with anyone in the market for a new appliance.
