Two years ago I purchased a Frigidaire Electrolux Galary Series Front Load washing machine.
As of a week ago, my washer stopped working due to what the error code read as a broken door lock. Upon notifying the company, I was informed that because the part I needed was on back order I had two choices. First, sit back and wait for the part or, accept a 60% rebate check to go purchase a new machine.
After thinking this over, I decided that 60% was unacceptable as I bought this washer in good faith that it would work for some time. I called the company back and after explaining my stance on the situation I was put on hold. Shortly after the operator came back on and said the part was there and I would receive it in three days.
Monday I received the part and it had nothing to do with my washing machine or its problem.
When I called the company for the third time, I was told the part I needed would not become available until February 6th. I was then offered another rebate for 70%.
Again I explained to the person on the other end that I do not feel I should have to spend 30% on a washing machine that I just bought 2 years ago. How is this fair?
He put me on hold for a while and returned with a list of three local handymen and told me I could try to get one of them to come over at my expense. However Electrolux would purchase the part if one of these men had it.
Later in the day, I called the company a fourth time. This time I was calling to find out how to override the test mode because I was told by a couple of other unsatisfied consumers that it may get the washer going.
Please understand, I have an 8 year old daughter and an 11 month old baby. Going to the laundromat with two children in tow is horrifying especially in the winter which is why I bought a washing machine 2 years ago.
After asking for the override information, I was put on hold and passed around 7 times until I finally insisted on speaking with a manager.
That is when a lovely gal named Tiffany came on the line. She offered me a $200 refund check for my laundromat troubles which I thought to be fair. She then said she had found the part and was going to overnight it to me. She had to double check for this and later in the evening she called me back to say she was successful in getting the part I needed.
Easy to say I was thrilled.
Today the part arrived. When I opened the box, there sat a large black oven door handle. Am I to assume I was being asked to beat my washing machine with it until it worked?
I called Tiffany and left her a message. I also called the company again and found myself back at square one, being told I am expected to wait what in the end will be a total month to fix a simple door lock issue on my washing machine.
$200 does not even come close to the costs this will incur.
Tiffany never returned my call.
I am going to summons whomever I have to in order to force the company to recall this product. After all, if this door lock is on such a long back order due to high demand, wouldn't that be a red flag insinuation that perhaps there is a serious problem here?
And why is this company getting away with all of this? From what I have seen so far, there are a ton of complaints regarding their customer service and accountability.

I bought my Electralux washer dryer set & have hated it since I bought it. I have to have the repair man clean out the pump 4-6 times a year. The rubber seal in the opening is full of black mold and I now have a hole in the tub of the washer. The dryer squeaks and the whole set is worthless. I have only had it for 2-3 years. I thought I was buying myself a gift not a money pit. The repairman told me to replace it. "Not worth fixing" Just lovely.
