Some buyers have complained about Kenmore's poor customer and delivery services.

    Electrical problems and door shattered NEW
    by: Anonymous

    I’ve been having electrical problems with this machine for the past 2 years. Have had it serviced a couple of times but the problem always returns. When the cycle finishes, the interior washer will light will remain on and the controls won’t work to start a new wash. I have to go to the electrical panel and cut the power to the washer to reset it so I can start the next wash.

    I opened the door to move clothes to the dryer and noticed a the washer was full of glass. The door shattered during the cycle. I have had these machines for a while these problems are the worst I’ve ever experience with a washing machine.
