When the service man called me before he came to the house, I asked for a second time how much the service call would cost me and he said $65.00. After the service man came to the house, he looked at the dryer and stated that the controls were locked and he pressed the button to release the lock. He showed us in the care guide where it explained the problem and how to correct it.
He gave my husband the bill and it was $140.00!!! The company charged an additional $75.00 for the "Labor" to show my husband (in the care guide) how to fix it next time. I have no problem paying the $65.00 but to charge for "Labor" when there was none involved is robbery. The company stated that there is a cost for customer information from the service person. How absurd! I believe that $65.00 should be enough for 5 minutes time to fix a problem they could have told me how to fix over the phone.
I contacted Whirlpool customer service, explained what happened and they wondered why I hadn't received some instruction from their phone personnel when I first called in the problem. That would have saved me a lot of aggravation, time and money.
Don't ever use A & E because their customer service is pathetic. They say they care about your business on the phone but in reality they could care less. The "Supervisor" I spoke to today told me she would report my problem to the billing department but it would take 7-10 for them to contact me. Can you imagine 7-10 days?????
I also reported the charge to my credit card company but I have to wait till the charge posts to my account before they can challenge the charge against this company. Hopefully, I will get some of my money back. I really am angry and feel as though I was totally blindsided with these additional charges.
