Best Buy - Extended Repair Plan / poor appliance repair time
Anyone considering purchasing Best Buy's "extended repair" plans on an appliance - BEWARE! You will likely be without the use of your appliance 2-3 weeks. this has been my experience twice. It takes usually a week to have a "repair specialist" come and look at the item needing repair. From that, parts are ordered. They will not even schedule the followup repair UNTIL the parts are in. When the parts are in, they will schedule the repair. They will claim about 2 days from the date the parts are in. I have been without a working washing machine (talk about inconvenience!) since 12/18/07. It is now 1/2/08 and I am told that they expect the parts to be in 1/5/08, but will not schedule repair until all parts are in. On 1/8/08, it will be 3 weeks with no washer. Try that for convenience not to mention the money you spend going to the laundromat doing your laundry! For the $150 we spent on the extended warranty, we would be better off calling our local appliance repair and I can bet (based on previous experience) we would have had it fixed within a few days. Save yourself the time and hassle - just pay for a repair when it happens!!! Also - expect to wait on the phone for an extended period of time before getting to speak to someone. First time I called was in excess of 15 minutes - and that was in late evening. I am very dissatisfied with the experiences I have had when I have had to be without my washer or dryer. Also - that says a lot about Whirlpool's quality - repairs on appliances (both washer and dryer) and they are less than 5 years old.
