I have to agree with drk5 regarding the Sears stackables. My Sears stackables came with the new house I purchased. Within 4 years the washer broke down. When the repairman came to fix it, I asked what was wrong with it. He said “you used it too much.” I asked him, “isn’t that what you’re supposed to do with a washing machine”!!?? He said they have a lot of plastic parts in them that break easily. Anyway, we purchased another of the same model and with 3 years it broke down as well. After that, we learned our lesson and purchased an LG washer. But we kept our Sears dryer by building a shelf for it with parts of the old metal stacking unit. The dryer is still going strong 15 years later – but will never buy another Kenmore anything.
