Kenmore Elite Dishwasher model 16264 electrical fire

\015 We have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher that was purchased in Dec 04 and is still under warranty. For a few weeks, it smelled like something burning on the first floor of our home. In the middle of the night of 1/27/09, the burning smell rose to the 2nd floor of our home and we came downstairs to find it was the dishwasher that smelled as smoke was coming out of it so we promptly turned it off. The next day, when we went to try to turn the dishwasher on, no lights on the front panel would work.\015\012\015\012We called Sears the next day and they sent a Repairman who advised that we would have had a house fire if we hadn't turned the dishwasher off. He showed us how all the wires had melted from them burning. In addition to this issue, we have complained many times that our dishes never come clean only to have a Sears repairman tell us that our water isn't hot enough despite the fact that we burn our hands when we run the water in our kitchen sink. The repairman this time advised that it's a defective part causing this and it takes some time and work to get to the part to replace it but he assured he'd take care of that when he came back to repair the dishwasher from the burned wires.\015\012\015\012Four boxes of parts have arrived for the dishwasher and we found out that the electrical control that they sent to us is a refurbished part. We called Sears on 4 occasions and spoken with 12 different Customer Service people and also went to the store where we purchased it to see if the Store Manager could assist us but he has yet to call us. We are simply requesting to have either new, not refurbished parts, to repair the dishwasher or have the dishwasher replaced if new parts aren't available. On 2/17/09, we contacted our lawyer who advised that we should file a civil complaint against Sears since no one has returned our call or taken care of a dishwasher that should be deemed a risk and safety hazard.\015

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher about 7... Problem with the Kenmore Dishwashers I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher about 7 years old. The Model # is 665-16462300.

I need a new dishwasher What do you recommend between Kenmore Elite. Quietguard Ultra. Model no. 665.77962K703 versus LG model LDF7920 I get conflicting information- a repairman we know says LG is the better make, needing far fewer repairs than Kenmore in general ( this washer I am thinking of buying was made by whirpool, I was told at the Sears store) But online reports claim LGs need the most repairs. HELP OR... do you have something else to recommend?

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.17462300) is not spraying the water from the basin in the bottom up through the rest of the dishwasher. The basin fills with water, then just makes a humming noise and appears to splash a little of the water around the very bottom of the dishwasher. When we cancel the cycle, it does drain out the water from the basin. I cleaned all the gunk and debris out of the basin in the bottom, but it didn't make any difference.
