Dishwasher leaked, so now I get a new floor!
Long story short, we purchase a Kenmore Elite almost 2 years ago. In October noticed that laminate floors were buckling in front of dishwasher. After 4 service calls they finally decided to replace dishwasher and we are working on the floor issue.
We have a real small galley kitchen. Below is the link to the FKB from when we redid it 2005. We have laminate floors throughout the whole downstairs. Here lies the problem. They don't make the floors anymore, they were laid in 2003. So we are thinking maybe they can just rip out the kitchen and we can lay some nice large tile on a 45 degree angle. Wouldn't take much tile. Now I just have to decide on the tile. DH picked out something that is real similar to the wood floor color. I am sort of thinking we need more contrast. I will have to take pics to show you all.
Moral of the story, make sure you buy a warranty when ever you purchase an appliance. Totally worth it!
