Thanks for the feedback!
I was told by a veteran Sears representative that LG now makes all of the Kenmore refrigerators..
That's not a valid model #.
your model number is not complete..there is three numbers followed by a dot..then more numbers.
LG makes the current model
LG makes Kenmore Elite Model 71053
One Answer: If you look at the control panel on the door you can see that it's very similar to Whirlpool Gold control panels. I also asked sears.com chat person and he confirm…ed that it is Whirlpool. Whirlpool also makes: Kitchenaid, Jennair, Maytag, as well as Whirlpool. Second CORRECT Answer: As usual, someone just offers an answer and really doesn't do ANY research. Then accepts an answer from a salesperson as gospel! Wow, I'd like to be selling this person some land in Florida... Ok, here's the researched answer. The Kenmore Elite model #72053 is 31 cu. ft. in size. The biggest Whirlpool Gold French Door refrigerator is 26 cu. ft. (from their website). So who makes this particular model? LG does, go to their website AND compare the model #LFX31925ST to the Kenmore Elite #72053. This does not mean Whirlpool doesn't make Kenmore refrigerators, just NOT this model.
I was told in January, 2012 by a Sears appliance salesperson at the Burnsville, MN store that the 7130 is made by LG.
I just purchased this model and I was told by Sears that LG makes it.
Interesting. In submitting the question, the model number was elminated. Twice. It's model #36359492990.
