A&E Factory Service — nightmare service
I would like to complain about a subcontractor you are using to service your products.
Our washing machine broke down almost 2 months ago and we contacted you directly for help. We were referred to A&E Factory Service (Chesapeake Service District) to help us with our washing machine.
The first trip, the technician never opened the machine and informed me that the problem was water pressure, and that the washing machine was operating incorrectly due to low water pressure.
So, I brought a plumber out and after spending $85, I was sarcastically told that my pressure was at 47psi and that A&E's technician was full of beans.
I called A&E out again, this time the technician was very professional and we needed to remove the stacked dryer off the washer for him to access the washer. We worked together and removed the dryer.
After he removed the top of the washer, he tested the intake valve and concluded that the valve was faulty. He was surprised by the story I told him concerning our first visit and again was courteous, helped place the dryer back up, reconnected everything back up.
He then ordered the part and told me to expect the part in the mail and scheduled to come back in 10 days.
On Friday [protected]), another technician showed up and after 30 seconds promptly returned from the basement to inform us that “that was a quick visit”. He stated that the dryer was on the washer, to which we immediately informed him that we would remove it. He stated that it was against “policy” to help assist remove the dryer. He promptly left and informed us to reschedule another visit.
This was outrageous; we never knew there was a policy or a need to remove the dryer beforehand. If we had known this, we would have had the dryer off a week beforehand if necessary!
Two out of three technicians were horrible!!! No customer service and I am inconvenienced and had to shell out money for a plumber to come out and diagnose a problem that NEVER existed.
I have always had great experiences with your products, and I do not hold whirlpool to blame, except for obviously subcontracting with these buffoons!
So here it is now going into our second month with a broken washer, and if I call you again, A&E will be referred back out here. This is not acceptable and I want to know what alternative do I have under these circumstances?
