You are currently viewing Sears customers frustrated by delayed repairs for appliances under warranty

“Deprizio is disabled and has been burdened with a broken washing machine since September. She said she’s spent hundreds of dollars on laundry service while waiting on her washer to be repaired under her Sears warranty.
