Is it still safe to buy a Kenmore washer, dishwasher??

With all the negative news reports that have Sears just barely hanging on (financially), do you feel that it still makes sense to purchase their products. I've owned Kenmore for quite a few years and really have not had any major problems with them. I need to replace my old Kenmore He3t washer and would like to get another Kenmore (reviews of other washer brands have been mixed with no clear winner??) but not sure how long Sears will be in business?? Many thanks!!

Kenmore is not a real brand - Kenmore is a rebranding of appliances made by other manufacturers (e.g. Whirlpool, Samsung, LG) sometimes with a few extra features. One big drawback to Kenmore appliances is that you're stuck with Sears warranty service which is provided by A&E which has a terrible reputation. If there's a particular Kenmore appliance you're interested in, you should find out who the actual manufacturer is and then buy the appliance from them.

The He3t is the same as the Whirlpool Duet isn't it?

If I was in the market for a new washer, it would be a Speed Queen
