    Bad choice
    by: Anonymous

    I have just had it with mine, we purchased it in 2005 and so far we have had it repaired 5x. It was so bad the Sears extended the warranty themselves. It will be in the dump soon, we are just waiting to figure out which one to purchase. Sears wont even give us credit towards a new one!
