American Home Shield [AHS] Washer not working

This issue started on 5/28/23 with our 3 1/2 year old LG washer not turning on. We have an AHS service contract so we called them immediately. They assigned a local company here in our town Clarksville, TN to be the contractor. The first visit by their technician happened and the person that showed up to look at the washer took one look at it and said that it needed a new circuit board. No diagnostics were performed and apparently the technician took down an incorrect number and thus ordered the wrong part. When he showed up for the second appointment he broke the original part removing it and did who knows what other kind of damage to the washer getting it out. He then stated that he would take the original part with him to order the correct part. We would not let him take the part and did in fact order AHS to fire that company as I would not let them in my house. All this was discussed at length with an AHS agent over the phone and was assure that all this conversation and the problems we were experiencing with this company would be documented in our account. NOTHING was noted in our account. We absolutely hate being lied to! They eventually did assign us to a different company after several calls. We live in Clarksville, TN and they assigned us to a company in Nashville, TN which is 1 hour and 15 minutes away from Clarksville. We explained to everyone we spoke to that keeping that company would entail making us wait until they had scheduling available for our area which was an additional week of waiting. So as of today we are three weeks out with a washer that still doesn't work. A new technician came today and told us that he would have to order a part and it would be next week before they could come out again. We have been forced to go to the laundromat 3 times since the inception of this problem, costing approx. $30 each time. We are on a fixed income and are both 70 years old. This is not only an inconvenience but physically painful for both of us. My husband has had a full knee replacement in April and I have experienced my own knee problem. We are both in rehab. So you can see the problem. No one has offered any kind of assistance with this money that we really can't spare. This is really poor customer service! We asked to speak with a supervisor and were told that there wasn't one we could speak to. Every time we tried to escalate to a higher power we were told that we could not! A supervisor did eventually call us three days later. Very poor customer service response. It's no mystery why this company is rated a one star. If we are not given a satisfactory response this time, we will be suing this company and we will cancel our contract.

Desired outcome: I want my washer fixed or a new one sent to us ASAP! Our patience is at an end!!

American Home Shield [AHS] Stove top not working

Service request order on 5/28/24 regarding an eye on my stove stop will not turn off and the way it will turn off is by way of unplugging the stove. The contractor’s first available appointment was 6/7/23.

Technician from Kasey’s Appliance Services explained he couldn’t find the part for this stovetop. He informed me to give them 25 hours to contact AHS. I have been getting the runaround since June 8th and no results. I am calling everyday and the answer they will contact me within 24 hours.

I am so frustrated with AHS. No resolution yet!

American Home Shield [AHS] Plumbing pipe repair Service Request

Contacted AHS 06/14/23 to place a pumbing service request for a pipe leak (gas pipe repair on the meter) located at the storage room under the carport. The gas has been shut off. Waited for a servicer to contact me to let me know when he or she would be out to make the repairs. No response from AHS or any service entity. Called back 06/20/23 to get an update on that service request and was told by the CSR that the request was not placed due to a cliche in their system and a new service request would need to be placed. Service fee would be charged on this request and I would need to wait until their dispatch team located a Plumber in my area. This is a second service request for the same issue.

Desired outcome: Cut the waiting period and get someone out to complete the repairs asap. Stop making excuses and apologizing.

American Home Shield [AHS] Plumber help for no water to the home

Late on Saturday May 13, 2023 my water stopped. Early Sunday May 14, 2023 I called AHS to get a vendor. AHS could not locate a vendor after 5 hours. I received permission to find a local plumber that was on AHS approved list, Anderson Plumbing. Anderson Plumbing was able to get a plumber to my home by 3:30. I tried to contact AHS to inform them of the estimate. I called 6 times, first two time I waited about 15 minutes. Third time I could not get through. Fourth time I was cut off. I called the 5th time and was on hold for 25 minutes and the line dropped. I call again and it was busy. The plumber found that the regulator was not working properly and the main shutoff valve was not opening or closing. Both were over 20 years old. I had shut off my water to the house late Saturday in case there was a leak.

I hope been a AHS customer for over 10 years and you always came through for me in emergencies. However, I received an email from the "Claims Review Team" telling me that I would not be reimbursed for the plumbing repairs because I did not get AHS approval for the plumber.

Today, 6/20/23 I called AHS to ask to speak with some one. After 20 minutes

of asking and having the rep keep repeating the contract section I did not follow, she refused to give me a name or phone number other than customer server, which I have been talking to all time and today.

Desired outcome: Refund for services that is applicable to what AHS would pay for the service.

American Home Shield [AHS] AC repair

Been an American Home Shield Customer for 9 years. They have sent techs/companies to repair our AC several times. We know they only like to repair and not replace but will accept this policy. In May 2023 opened a ticket for AC repair. Paid the $100 service call they sent a tech from Quick AC Solutions Inc who put freon in the system. After a week or so system is down again. Called American Home Shield they re-opened the ticket again another tech from same company did the same. Again the AC stopped blowing cold air. A third time another tech same out and says it must be a leak and refused to go into the attic to review the handler. They reported to AHS we do not have access to the handler and AHS closed the ticket and will not send out another tech unless we pay another $100. Though this AC has been repaired by AHS before and the handler has been accessed by other companies representing AHS. They closed the ticket. Refusing to complete the job, and not following their contract. Called and tried to talk to a supervisor several times, was read the same script over and over again and refuses to honor their contract. Need help.

Desired outcome: AHS and Quck AC solutions to finish the job started and repair our ac unit. Michael Johnson [protected]

American Home Shield [AHS] a/c and air handler units

Good morning -

I have taken home extended warranty to cover my appliances and HVAC and other home units with AHS (American Home Shield). The coverage was initiated on April 4th, 2023, with 30-day period and become effective on May 4th, 2023, for a year contract. On 06/09/2023 I have noticed by A/C unit not working and I have initiated a service request with AHS. A technician was sent to diagnose the problem. The technician suggested the issue is with coil and bugs may have caused some holes and refrigerant leak, hence no pressure to start the A/C unit. AHS denied servicing the unit for the problem saying it is caused by some bugs and not a normal wear/tear. I disputed it saying bugs do not cause holes and leak of the refrigerant. They suggested for a second opinion and there is another technician came to diagnose the problem on 06/13. This new technician reported it is a pre-existing situation and hence the A/C is not working, and AHS again denied the service saying they don't cover pre-existing conditions. I have escalated this up AHS but no use. I have argued it is not a pre-existing condition and A/C was working fine since April as weather started warming up and suddenly stopped working, and they are asking me to bring proof to show it was working fine. I have asked AHS if it is pre-existing condition, why is not the first service provider mentioned it. They dont want to talk about that as it is not necessary anymore, and I was denied service and without A/C. I am paying them every month to have full coverage for my home appliances and HVAC but have left with NO option to report this to consumer complaints.

American Home Shield [AHS] Unable to perform contract/ breach of contract by american home shield

On Jan. 29, 2023, a water pipe (under pressure) to my upstairs bathroom faucet broke causing hundreds of gallons of water to spew inside the walls of my house. Because of the location of the break, there was no way to stop further damage to my home other than turning the water off to my entire property.

I immediately called American Home Shield to send a service contractor out immediately. The customer service rep. said her earliest appointment was the following week. I told her it was an emergency. She said there was nothing she could do to expedite my claim unless I wait four hours and call back. Then the claim would be serviced in 24 hours. I called back in four hours and I was then told there was no one in the offices (it was after hours) and I needed to call back in the morning. I called back and was then told they were still working on it.

This was extremely urgent because it is my house that I rent out - currently vacant. I had flown into Phoenix on my days off to check on my property and was scheduled to fly out on the 1st. Your committment to me was it would be fixed by the 31st. I tried to contact CNJ several times to make sure they would be there on the 31st. They finally contacted me on the 31st to tell me they had no one available that day and said they would be there on Feb. 1st, FOUR DAYS SINCE I CALLED YOU AND REPORTED I HAD AN EMERGENCY. I called AHS back again and told them I had no water for four days and I needed it fixed today. They replied that CNJ was assigned and they had no one else in the network to respond sooner. I said they were violating my contract and that I should be eligible to find someone to fix it today. I was placed on hold, then disconnected. I called AHS (you) back and told the rep. to cancel my contract. I was transferred to Chad/Richard Tompkins and I told him what had happened and that AHS had breached our contract and now I am forced to find a plumbing contractor out of network. Chad apologized profusely and stated that AHS would make it right. He made sure I was not billed for the service charge I was not getting and told me to make sure the plumber I called was licensed and certified, and that he would submit the receipts for reimbursement. He stated he could not 100% guarantee I would be reimbursed for the total amount, but submit them as soon as possible. This would be done if I would remain with AHS. I agreed to remain and after five months later and several emails attempting to reach Chad I receive a call from him with all sorts of excuses why he did not reply. He stated my request for reimbursement was denied because I did not have the proper authorization from AHS to go outside of the network. Your company would not give me nor told me I needed a "code", even after I told AHS that they were in violation of our contract. Furthermore, I did not call a plumbing contractor until after your representative Chad said to send him my receipts, specifically what your requirements for reimbursement where, and when I could expect payment. That was authorization to me. That implied promise for "some if not all reimbursement was the only reason I stayed on and paid $1600 in additional premiums. I have been harmed by your actions and have accumulated more than $6,200 in documented legitimate damages. I intend upon pursuing legal action, a process I hope we can both avoid by finding a resolution. Because of your refusal to uphold your responsibilities and told by your representative Chad that AHS would not discuss this matter further, I was forced to cancel my almost 13 year contract with you. I was further informed that with my cancellation, my company file and history with you would be completely erased.

American Home Shield [AHS] They need to pay me out on system since they ruined with stop leak.

Contractor came out last year. Unit had shut off and capacitor was replaced. Before leaving they said low on freon. Manager called and said over time they get low. I was working at home and thought ok. Was taking guys a long time outside so I went out and techs were trying to put something in system. I was told stop leak. This is when I learned that freon is not supposed to leak and stop leak damages units. Called contractor to get receipt where they put stop leak. Have to call AHS. I have tried multiple times to get a receipt from AHS. Now less than a year later my A/C unit is out and has to be replaced. AHS is saying I let freon get low and ruined system. Nope they put in stop leak when there should of been a repair last year. Tried calling to talk to manager. Only get put on hold and then phone hangs up. I'm done with AHS and with temps in 100's I am having replaced. AHS advertises they repair or replace. I havent seen either. Now I am seeing that they used my credit card that I used for service call for monthly payment. Never gave them permission to do this.

American Home Shield [AHS] Dryer service taking 18 weeks to resolve?

Dear Mr. Timothy Haynes,

I am experiencing tremendous delays in getting a simple dryer problem fixed from the contractor chosen by AHS. I spent over 2 hours on the phone bouncing between Customer Service, Parts, and Appliances to get assistance with expediting this repair with the chosen contractor. The contractor has tried to get the parts and they it will take 8 to 12 weeks. I found both parts online:

• 6323EL2001B Dryer Thermistor Assembly Replacement for LG and Kenmore Dryer – ship and arrive by June 11th from Amazon

• Kenmore LG Dryer Main Control Board EBR33640913 – ship and arrive between June 16th and June 19th from Amazon

My price to fix with a local contractor is approximately $750. I have called multiple times to get the parts, labor, and deductible returned and no Customer Service Representative has helped so far. I am asking for your assistance as I have been a AHS Customers in several homes since 2015. My wife and I have 2 small children ages 2 and 4 along with our needs for the dryer is urgent. We have tried for the past 30 days to accommodate another 3-4 months seems longer than required if parts are available much sooner.

The resolution I am seeking is to expedite the repair by the contractor from AHS or a complete refund to cover the $550 it would have cost me out of pocket to get the dryer fixed.

Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated. Please feel free to reach out to me via email or by phone [protected].

Kindest regards,

Toby and Anila Mathew

Desired outcome: immediate fix of dryer, cost of repair locally is $750

American Home Shield [AHS] HVAC System

I was told when I signed up that they would come out once a year to check either the heating or air. I called May 8, 2023 to have the air checked out and never got the free service. as promised. Instead, I had to pay $125 trade fee for someone to come out before we had even turned our air on. When the technician came out, who by the way was very nice, we were told that our refrigerant was completely out and we needed a new unit. We have a baby in the household. After 3 weeks of not hearing anything from them, I contacted AHS on May 31, 2023 for an update status and was told that the part had been ordered and picked up. We have to pay $1100 for the rewiring of the new unit. I pay $95 a month for this service. Granted that is much better than having to pay for the entire HVAC unit. I was never told by the representative that I had to go online and Accept that I would pay for the $1100. Here we are 3 weeks later and still have not heard from the contractor. When I called them today and reminded them that we have a baby in the house, the representative said that the contractor didn't answer and the mailbox was full so she had to e-mail them. Now we are having to wait again and it is hot. Why is it taking over 6 weeks to get something fixed? They are not waiting 6 weeks for their monthly payments. I am extremely unsatisfied with this service and am not impressed at all. If this doesn't get resolved quickly, I will NOT be renewing my contract if this is what I have to look forward to each time I have to file a claim. This is ridiculous at this point and completely unacceptable!

Desired outcome: Refund my $125 "trade fee" as I was told this was to be a free service for them checking my unit once per year!!!

American Home Shield [AHS] Home warranty

In October 2021, my husband and I purchased a house. Having used AHS in the past while renting we figured it was a no brainer to use them for our home. Somewhere along the way, another policy was added and for over a year we have been paying for two separate policies for the same address, crazy right. I caught that error and called AHS (11May) to cancel the additional policy. The service representative I spoke with was kind and assured me everything was taken care of and that I would receive email notification within 24hrs reflecting both the cancellation and refund. I received nothing. I called back a week later (18May), was told the exact same thing. By the third time I called (28May), I asked to speak with a supervisor and was told that a trouble ticket was submitted and that I would receive a call from a supervisor within 24hrs. Again, nothing. A quick Google search of their corporate office, Frontdoor, yielded little results but I was able to locate a few email address that I contacted. Specifically Abreeka Moore (Abreeka. [protected]@ahs.com), Tony Bacos (Tony. [protected]@frontdoorhome.com), r. [protected]@frontdoorhome.com, and even their social media department ([protected]@ahslink.com). I received one email response from Abreeka forwarding my information and asking someone named Daysi if they could assist me, that was on May 30th, haven’t heard anything since, no other replies to my follow up email. I called AHS on June 8th in a twist of events, the customer service representative, who AHS outsources to the Philippines, transferred me to an American customer solutions rep. She informed me that she had elevated everything and that the supervisor was cancelling my contract and issuing my refund as we were speaking on the phone and that I would see the refund in 24-48hrs and that my contract would be canceled that say and to be on the lookout for an email that should be ckmjngany moment. Again, another lie. It's past 24hours later and I received no email notification reflecting the cancellation. As a matter of fact, I called AHS and asked the customer service rep to transfer me to customer solutions, they transferred me to another representative not in the states. When asked to transfer me to an American representative, was told they didn’t have those numbers or ability to transfer me all while telling me that the the contract that was supposed to be cancelled was past due and had the audacity to ask me if I wanted to pay over the phone. This is absolute garbage and a horrible way to treat your customers. In my 20 plus years of Active Dity service e to my country I’ve never been treated with such disregard and I professionalism.

Desired outcome: Contract cancellation and full refund for duplicate contract payments.

American Home Shield [AHS] Refrigerator Repair

I purchased a plan from AHS 2 years ago and have never filed a claim. I submitted a claim one month ago for my refrigerator because the top part wasn’t cooling. The first repairman was of no use. The 2nd repairman said he needed to order a part (a fan motor) and would contact me within 1 week to reschedule. Bear in mind, my dad’s insulin sits in the refrigerator so I had to go to a neighbor to ask them to store the insulin while I get this issue resolved. Fast forward to this week, I get an email from AHS telling me that it’s going to take until January 2024 to get the fan motor here in the US and in the meantime my replacement options are that they can give me the cash for the part $107.93 and I can go order my own part and get a service repairman to repair the refrigerator at my expense if I don’t want to wait 8 months for the replacement part.

Desired outcome: They charged me the monthly fee of $55.99 today, I cancelled today! I want that money refunded and I want them to pay for my refrigerator repair because I am going to call Sears Repair today.

American Home Shield [AHS] Washer

Hello I've been waiting for over four months, to get my washer fixed and the only thing I get is that the part has been ordered. It's been since February 01, 2023. I have continuously tried to keep getting updates on when the washer will be fixed, however the only answer I keep getting is the part has been ordered. On May 15, 2023, I called back again to get an update on the repair of my washer. The customer service agent stated it had been over 3 months and she was sending the service request to an escalation team to either get a replacement or a buyout option and I should get an email in 24 hours giving me the options. I never received an email. On May 22, 2023, I called back again and I got the same response from the service agent. on May 29, 2023, I called back again and advised the agent that I was supposed to receive an email with a buyout option or a cash out option for my washer since it had been almost 4 months since it was supposed to be repaired. The agent llooked into the matter and gave me the same answer as before.

Desired outcome: To have the cash out option I was promised.

American Home Shield [AHS] Service Contract

On June 6 I filed a request for service for a stoppage for my plumbing. My washing machine was backing up into my tub and my toilet. I was unable to use any water in my home. The next day I was called to say they were still looking for a vendor. The next day I called again asking for an update and I got the same response of trying to find a vendor. At this point I looked online called a plumbing company and set up an appointment for the next day. I called again to get an outside authorization, was told I would receive an email with important information about outside vendors. I did not receive the email. I called the next day to ask for the email again, I was told that a request for the email was sent up again. I asked to speak to a supervisor was told the representative could not put me in contact directly with the supervisor however she could submit a request and within the next 24 to 48 hours I would be contacted by the supervisor. By the time the vendor arrived at my house, I still have not received the email. I called the service number and was given the incorrect number had to call back for the correct one. Overall this entire process was stressful and frustrating, no representative could offer a solution directly and each time I called the majority of my time was spent on hold. The company did nothing for me and I had to take care of the issue. My service fee was taken rather quickly but no one seemed helpful past that point.

Desired outcome: I am requesting a refund of my service fee, due to the lack of effort and no resolution of my issue through this company.

American Home Shield [AHS] Repairs never completed

I requested service on my dishwasher due to no water circulating, and had a tech over on 5/5/23. He returned on 5/12 with parts. He left and told me "Didn't work" and drove away. I've had no communication with the tech since, and AHS refuses to change providers, or replace my dishwasher. I'm disabled, have autoimmune disease, and have children. There is now mold in my dishwasher from standing water, that I was not told about.

It's now 6/2, I'm told parts were just ordered on May 31st. It will take 2 weeks. So they waited 3 weeks to order.

The service from AHS has been absolutely terrible, as no one cares. One person even asked why I can't hand wash. Because my hands don't work! Hence my disability.

Desired outcome: Replace my dishwasher

American Home Shield [AHS] Refrigerator

I called in service for my refrigerator not cooling or making ice mid May. The technician started working on it and now it completely stopped working. I had to throw everything out and I have 4 small children. I am being told that the part won’t be in until July 17th. At first I was told by your representative that since it’s more than 2 weeks that I have to wait, they would submit request for replacement. Now I’m being told I will just have to wait until July. This is not acceptable. I want replacement of refrigerator or refund all the money I’ve paid on this contract, since you are not going to honor the agreement. I need help

Desired outcome: Replacement of refrigerator or refund of money spent on my contract

American Home Shield [AHS] Replacement of a/c condenser & coils

I contacted AHS on May 15th as my A/C conked out. The AHS vendor came out next day and filed report for AHS to order replacement parts. Vendor received communication parts would be ready on 5/20. 5/24 rolls around and AHS has just ordered parts and arrival will be on 5/31. In meantime heat wave hit and temps are in upper 80s/low 90s. The heat exacerbates my medical issues, so I called AHS on 5/30 to get an idea when equipment would be ready. Representative lied and said she spoke to vendor when I was having a text exchange with him at same time. Long story short rep would only write a report but could not connect me to supervisor. The evening of 5/30 vendor contacts me to say parts had been delivered and he would be by on 5/31 to install. Parts that were delivered to vendor were the wrong parts and he tries to no avail to purchase the equipment directly since it has been almost 3 weeks since process started. Vendor can't get authorization to purchase the parts, I finally get to 'escalation dept.' Escalation rep listens to my story and my medical condition and gives me 2 choices; 1. wait until part in delivered on June 7th OR take a cash out offer and I would have to pay above and beyond whatever the standard reimbursement is. So for AHS screwup and not being able to wait another week due to medical condition, I have to pay additional funds to get my A/C fixed for their errors. Unacceptable!

Desired outcome: I want the A/C parts expedited for installation on 6/1. I don't want to have to pay extra for AHS' mistakes.

American Home Shield [AHS] AHS Internet Website

The AHS dashboard site (for my account) has had my old contact listed for the past 8 months:

ID: #[protected]

Expires 08/27/22

This needs to be outdated to my current contract number - and I cannot make any requests for service? as the website button (request service link) is "ghosted out".. everyone that I talk to in AHS support does not know how to get "my webpage" updated to reflect the correct contact?

Desired outcome: I need AHS to fix my dashboard, update my contract number and enable the "request service" link, so that I can request service on-line, versus calling in my requests.

American Home Shield [AHS] Water heater contractor and cancellation policy

On April 25th my hot water heater failed. I immediately called AHS and filed a claim while also checking for other contractors. AHS assigned a contractor from

Rock Hill SC, (20+ miles away) named Honesty Services. Upon checking their rating which came in at less than 1.5 out of 5 and reading the horrible reviews posted by their customers I called AHS back and they advised me that this was the best they had. Using this firm would have required several days to obtain a quote and get it approved by AHS which was unacceptable under the circumstances. I went with another firm and had the work completed that day at a cost of over $3000. Based on the poor stable of contractors, I decided to cancel my AHS contract for which the monthly premium was drafted on the 23rd only 3 days ago. They added insult to injury by only giving me a credit of 69 cents out of $55 paid and the cancellation is effective today. So they charged me almost $53 for the remainder of the periodand once again will provide me with nothing. I even asked the rep to speak to a supervisor and was advised that they could not transfer me to a supervisor. No one should use this company based on the contractors they have available and onerous cancellation policies. I for one will advise my friends and family to avoid AHS at all costs.

Desired outcome: Refund the appropriate amount based on poor service on the part of AHS. Get better contractors
