   Or " Who made my Kenmore...? "

Sears department store has been selling appliances since the very beginning, almost 100 years ago. And, while Sears branded appliances are amongst the most popular, Sears hasn't manufactured a single appliance. Instead, they have other manufacturers make appliances for them under Sears or Kenmore brand.

Most Sears appliances are made by Whirlpool, but pretty much every manufacturer at one point or another had made various models under Sears brand. Below is a chart that will let you know exactly who made your Sears appliance by using the first three numbers (prefix) of the appliance model number. For example, if your washer model is 110.7829100 then it was made by Whirlpool. ( Need help finding the model number? )

"Do I have to go through Sears to get parts for my Kenmore appliance?" - Sure, if you don't mind paying more. Almost every part supplier carries parts for Sears appliances and certainly our trusted parts partners do for a lot less in most cases.
