 Here's my input-

The problem is a bad User Interface Board, the touch panel. It lists for $228 at some of he sources I have seen, maybe less at others. Nevertheless, you have the following choices:

1) Order the User Interface board yourself and have it installed by a local tech in under 3 weeks, part # 8558704

2) Wait for Sears for 3 weeks and have everything covered (that is unless the idiots do not bring the part with them, then another 3 weeks), but do without laundry all that time?

What would you do?? I know what I would do...cancel my warranty, demand a refund, then start using sites like this the next time you run into trouble. We're always around to help.

And a further note...I apologize if I came off as insensitive regarding the dyslexic comment which I removed.  In my arrogance, I sometimes forget that dyslexia is a common affliction that should not be ridiculed or ignored. If I offended you, I am heartily sorry.

Oh my Goodness, how great are you????

I will use the laundry mat tomorrow and get all that I need done for the holidays, then wait for Sears, get the fix that I need and then cancel the warranty.

I am so sad with Sears.  What happened to customer service now a days........ (I know, I know, just let it go.....)

The information is delicious.  It is important to know your dollars and sense.  You have helped a bunch.

Have a Merry Christmas!!!!  I will be spending Christmas Eve at the Laundry Mat!!!!!!!! ha ha ha ha
