Sears (Canada) Kenmore Elite Oasis he Clothes Washer

Used daily, works fine. We really like it.
We like the promise of new, quiet, energy efficient technology and feel good and proud about our purchase. We did our homework. We really want this new machine to work as well or better than our old 23 yr Inglis Surpurba that I recycled as soon as we installed our new machine.
Oct 5, 2006 first F51 code. I reset it and it works.
Oct 9, 2006 many, many F51 codes and resets. Machine stuck in rinse/spin cycle and keeps filling tub higher and higher.....
Oct 11, 2006 repairman arrives (My wife was able to get the repairman dispatched in two days!) and tests machine. He writes on service order, "Checked over, needs parts listed, parts not available until mid Nov, cust wants exchange, refer to C/S". Parts needed are lower machine harness and RPS sensor.
Hmmmm, now I have a pile of dirty wet pants and nowhere to put them. :')
I am going to return to Sears the Kenmore Elite Oasis he Washer and Dryer set today (about a $2000 sale). The sales manager isn't authorized to compensate me in anyway for my dirty wet pants. It will take 11 days to bring in another unit. I don't want dirty wet pants for 11 more days. I got the Associate Store Manager name, but posting here makes me feel a whole lot better than talking to someone that really can't do more than the clerk did.
That is my story. If you want to buy this unit, make sure you have a backup plan in place so that you don't end up with 11 day old dirty wet pants........

In general, I never recommend anyone get something newly designed in the first year of production. They end up doing their product testing in your home at your expense.
Sorry about the pants..

I'm happy and Sears C/S still thinks that i'm going to return the units.
Damn, my grandmother was right, it does all come out in the wash.
