Agree on these points made by Spencer and Mack.
This is a good opportunity to remind buyers to go over those contracts with a fine tooth comb. You might want to keep a notebook and some notes about the things you want to include and make sure your agent is apprised of the things you want to be included. As these other agents note, the appliances that are not generally considered a part of the property are not routinely included. If you wanted a refrigerator in the deal - something that is not attached - then it is your responsibility to make sure this is mentioned. You should take the same diligence to your inspections of the home.
No, the MLS is a listing and does not form a contract once the buyer tenders an offer. That was your first opportunity to catch the detail that was missing.
This is why I stress that when buyers interview agents to hire, the buyer should gauge how well you both communicate. Are you comfortable dealing with this person? How much experience do they have?
Please let us know the outcome. Thanks.

The MLS listing sheet usually includes a disclaimer that says something to the effect that the information is subject to change and should be independently verified. Beyond that, what is advertised on the MLS is really between the listing agent and the seller.
What is listed in the MLS is not the deciding factor. There is a section in the contract that delineates what is included or excluded in the sale. If your agent wrote in that the appliance was included and the seller signed it, it is included. If not, it is not included. Sounds like this is an oversight that your agent made in not including it. There may still be room to negotiate that appliance in and do an amendment to the contract. Good success with your purchase.
