When Sears filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last fall, we heard from readers wondering what would happen to the appliances they bought there—whether a warranty would still be in effect, and whether they could still order repairs from Sears Home Services. At the time, we reported that Sears will honor your appliance's warranty and that Sears Home Services would continue to exist.

When we called the Sears Home Services appointment number today, we were told, "Sears is closing, but our in-home services will be expanding. You will still have a technician in your area. And Sears is obligated to honor your warranty."

If you want to purchase a Kenmore appliance, they're available, too. "We're still open online. You can still buy at" Many Kenmore appliances are sold on Amazon, and Reviewed has rated some of them highly over the years.

For now, not much has changed. Your local Sears store is probably closed, but the appliances you purchased there will still be taken care of.
