Electrolux / defective washing machine on purchase

1 India Review updated:
Contact information:

I used to be a proud owner of a 6.5 kgs maxclean washing machine which i purchased way back in 2001.
Since it started giving me problems, i decided to go for an aqua fabriguard 6.2 kgs model in exchange of the old one.The aqua model was purchased by me on the 16 th of March from New Khosla Electronics, kolkata -47.The same was installed by your kolkata service engineer Mr.Indrajit on the 25 th.The spin tub of the new Aqua machine did not work and hence he suggested a machine replacement for which i agreed.I had to make repeated calls to your kolkata office and talked to many people whose names i have mentioned below;

Mr.P.Dey - M/S Varsha Refreigeration systems

Mr.Mukul Roy Choudhury-M/S Varsha Refreigeration systems

Mr.Vijayan -Electrolux india

IT was after a lot of heated arguments from the dealers as well as the companys side that i was offered an older model TURBO machine of the same capacity .I agreed to receive the old model in place of the new one.
A turbo 6.2.kgs was delivered to me on friday the 28th.The service engineer who came to install it today declared the machine defective.Mr.Sriram Saha declared that the machine had a broken drain channel.He suggested another replacement.

I have lost faith in the company, its employees and its products.It looks like the company is bent on cheating people of their hard earned money.My sincere request to you is to refund the money (rs.5000/-) i.e.the cost of the machine and also Rs.1000 which i have incurred due to the phone calls made to your different employees at different branches..This incident has caused severe mental stress and trauma for which i have suffered a lot.
For your info, i have registered a complaint with core centre, which is official site for complaints and grievances ofthe Ministry of Consumer Affairs .
I would expect a reply and a speedy action from you within the next 24 hours failing which i will be forced to take the matter further.
