Is Sears still contracting with Whirlpool? Or are all these machines existing stock that will last until sold out? Is Sears intending to stay in business, remain online or simply close altogether?

743 without any upgrades like a heavy duty motor, splutch, belt ect is not worth it. A few hundred more and you're at a Speed Queen TC5 which gives you 5-10 times the longevity, better cleaning, faster cycles, no clothing tangles, less lint, less wrinkling, no lid lock, better balancing, less noise, less vibration, no cringey noises, better water economy, better rinsing, scratch resistance paint... you could go on. No thanks indeed.

No cringy noises...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds the noises of the splutch-driven machines cringy. I had one for nearly 6 years and it did clean reasonably well but the noise was by far the hardest part for me. The thumping agitation of my current DD machine, while slightly annoying at times, is nothing in comparison.

There are no longer any Kenmore branded front oaders. There's only 2 Kenmore dishwashers. I can only find the Kenmore Elite brand with refrigerators.
