Hi Steve,

Sears Canada uses two different numbers to describe Kenmore appliances.  For example the Kenmore Dishwasher listed on as "223 616 052" is actually model number "665.16052402" which according to this thread is a Whirlpool, and based on a recent recon, it appears to be a Kitchen Aid variety of Whirlpool becuase the Turbo-Zone feature only appears on Kitchen-Aids.

So, you ask, where can you cross reference the 223 number to the 665 number?  The only place I could find the 665 number was inside the door of the actual unit.  So looks like you will need to go back to the Sears show room.  The US Sears website lists the same model as "Sears item #02216052000 Mfr. model #16052" so that is no big help either.

One other thing.  Effective now Sears is reducing the warranty period on all non-premium appliance brands to ONE-YEAR.  Jenn-Air and Kitchen-Aid are not affected, but Maytag and Whirlpool are (for example).
