Summary: Previous dishwasher never needed repaired in the 10 years we lived in our home. We remodeled our kitchen and chose this dishwasher thinking it would run circles around the old. Not so. The latch broke within the first few months and we couldn't close the machine. Luckily it was under warranty. Now, 2 years later, the control panel has gone out and needs replaced. This is a $400 repair!
don't buy whirpool extended warranty after original warranty expires. go to sears even if you bought on amazon

Summary: I bought a new kitchens worth of appliances in 2007. After my Sears warranty lapsed, I responded to a mailer for more warranty protection. I called and had them add in my fridge and washing machine. They say there is a 60 day waiting period since it was now "out of warranty" and that the paperwork is mailed to you 4 -6 weeks later. Well I got busy and didn't notice that the paperwork never arrived. * months later I received a solicitation email for my fridge.
15 months after I purchased...had to call for repair

Summary: Loved this dishwasher until after a finished wash I noticed all the display lights were on. Tried to push all buttons to no avail. Called for service and was told the display part had a short...250.00 later and the part still hasn't arrived. Paid too much for a short to occur!
