    Nothing but problems
    by: Anonymous

    Purchased this model for son and daughter-in-law.

    In the year that they have had it, multiple service calls required. Soap dispenser didn't work and now the thing doesn't drain. Warranty runs out soon, hope this can be resolved amicably. Kids are real turned off to Sears Kenmore, they purchased new washer/dryer from another store as a result.

    drying option not working
    by: Anonymous

    My dishes were soaked when the cycle ended. I tried to follow the directions for setting the drying option--nothing happened. The inside stayed damp for 2 days.
