Please read this before posting about Kenmore appliances
If you want to ask a question or report a problem with a Kenmore washer or dryer, please search through the existing discussions before starting a new discussion. Chances are that there is already a discussion of exactly the problem you're having, and it will benefit everyone if you post your thoughts in that existing discussion. Unless your problem is unique ("My Kenmore washer causes nuclear fusion when I run it more than 10 minutes"), please look for a discussion of your model of washer/dryer and post your question there.
The reason for this is that every new discussion creates a new location for consumers to search to learn about their product. Just as you don't want to search all over the place for information, other consumers feel exactly the same way. Keeping all the discussion in the existing threads is consumer-friendly and saves lots of time for your fellow Kenmore owners.
Thank you, thank you, thank you... and I really mean that!
