I write this letter in extreme frustration with Sears and the inability to deliver on the promises that have been made.
1/1/08, the washing machine stopped working. I contacted Sears to have a technician come out to repair the machine. The appt is 1/24 3 weeks later. The technician was to arrive between 1 and 5 PM, he arrived at 7. He could not repair the machine or determine what was wrong as it was a stacking unit & that required 2 technicians and that since the serial numbers located in the washer door has rubbed clean he was not able to determine what type of machine we had, then charged a service call fee of $65.00.
I contacted Sears and they were very sorry and would refund the service charge, & made a new appt for the 29th. The technician did not show, & made a new appt. He ordered a part. When it arrived the technician came out and installed the part. The machine still did not work. So they ordered several other parts & again a no show for the appt. They set up another appt. The mgr at Sears stated she would make arrangements for us to be reimbursed for the laundry charges.
I contacted Sears 2/15 & was told that the most I could get reimbursed for the laundry for 2 months was $60.00, & expect in 5 – 7 days. I have not received it. The technician came out & again installed new parts. The machine still did not work.
One Monday 2/25 I contacted Sears again. I spoke with Monica & she stated that she was authorizing a replacement of the machine & another $100 in laundry reimbursement & that someone would also be contacting to reimburse me the service charge.
T2/28 I contacted Sears again. I spoke to Mike who stated that Monica should not have authorized the replacement as we had not had 4 service calls. I explained that the service call this Saturday will be the 7th service call. He stated that since Sears had not showed up on 2 of the service calls & that the other 2 calls did not include replacement of parts, I would have to endure at least 2 more service calls in which they installed more parts in the machine prior to having the machine replaced. I explained, that Sears has already spent more in parts that the machine cost when I purchased it. So after 1 ½ hours, 2 disconnections & explaining myself 5 times, Sears has decided that I am to receive nothing in the way of customer service.
