Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Sears maintenance agreement for washer, dryer and or refrigerator - (kenmore or any brand) worth it or not? They claim that this is different than service agreement in that they come out and do yearly maintenance. If they do an honest check of the machine and truly repair any problems this seems to be better than a regular service agreement.

    Thanks, I'm still kicking it around but it appears that they are not worth it. Sears really pushes them, that is for certain.

Hello. I have been repairing appliances for 35 years, and my very best friend just retired from Sears where he was a sears repairman for almost 40 years. Here is what we believe. These maintenance agreements are sold to make a profit. Statistically your chances of "making out" with a service agreement are not good. Most appliances work great for years without any yearly maintenance. While having an extended warranty can sometimes save you appliance repair costs down the road, it can in certain circumstances be an unnecessary expenditure. All of that said, I do not buy maintenance agreements on appliances. And I have had no problems at all with any of my major appliances until they got over the 20 year mark. Of course the final decision is yours. If you would like to read even more about these agreements, I have a website that I recommend to all of my customers. http://housewares.about.com/od/consumerawareness/a/xtendedwarranty.htm

I was told by a Sears salesman last weekend that some Kenmore frontload washers are made by Samsung ? Is he full of it ?


"Sears" doesn't make anything. They commision other companies to make a product with the Kemore brand name on it, so to answer your questio. No, the salesman was probably being quite honest with you
