The dishwasher we ordered from AppliancesConnection was delivered with no visible signs of damage to the packaging or the unit.

Upon the first use of the dishwasher on 10/08/12 it dumped water on to the floor and surrounding
cabinets.

On 10/10/12 we paid a certified Bosch service technician ($94) to examine the unit, he "found the work pump/motor at an angle & leaking water into the base" and told us that it was clearly damaged during freight. He also said that the damage would not have been recognized by a layperson and requireddisassembly of the unit to diagnose and that the unit was un-repairable.

We emailed AppliancesConnection a copy of the service diagnosis receipt and contacted them on 10/12/12 to explain the situation and service techs diagnosis and were told that we would likely receive a full refund and would not have to pay for return shipment but they (AppliancesConnection) needed to contact the shipping company to schedule a pick up.

When we had not received a follow-up response from AppliancesConnection we contacted them again on 10/16/12 and were told that the issue would be resolved on 10/18/12.

On 10/18/12 we received an email that the shipping company denied AppliancesConnections insurance claim because we had signed for the item and that we would not receive a refund unless we ship the unit back at our expense. We called on 10/18/12 and were told that we could ship it back at our expense but also that AppliancesConnection decided that the unit was defective and they would contact Bosch to replace the unit.

We called on 10/25/12 and were told they were still resolving the issue with Bosch and that
AppliancesConnection had determined the unit is defective and would not accept responsibility.

Bosch called us on 10/29/12 to tell us that they determined the unit was damaged during freight and would not accept responsibility.

We called appliance connection on 10/30/12 to report that Bosch was not accepting responsibility
and were told that AppliancesConnection would contact Bosch to resolve and would call us back that afternoon.

We called AppliancesConnection on 10/31/12; they had not called Bosch so we facilitated a three-way conference call with Bosch and AppliancesConnection. During that call both parties again stated neither was responsible, AppliancesConnection because they feel its defective, Bosch because they feel it is freight damage. AppliancesConnection became belligerent, told us they were done with us , that the case was closed as far as they were concerned, and hung up; Bosch told us they would like 24 more hours to review the case.

Bosch called on 11/1/12 to confirm their final review is freight damage and they will not accept any
responsibility.
