Frigidaire/Sears Complaint - Front loader with many problems
WATERFORD, CONNECTICUT -- I purchased a KENMORE front loader washer and dryer in 2003 for quite a substantial amount of money. After 3 months the "control board" went on the washer, A month ago the washer stopped with a BANG! Called Sears repair, a tech came 10 days later, said the machine was "shot"- a bearing gone- spinner messed up. He gave me an estimate of $678! (The washer cost $650). He said Kenmore is FRIGIDAIRE and they are not good products!!!! He says Whirlpool is best. He says many problems with front load washers. (oh, and I paid him $75 to tell me this.) Well, a visit to Sears and my tale of woe to the store manager left me with, "You'll have to pay for the repair or buy a new one." When a call To CT Consumer Complaints yielded nothing, In a nutshell, I'm out of luck. Well, I assured Sears that after being a customer my entire life, I will NEVER purchase anything form them again! Nor will I purchase anything of Frigidaire.
Gee, consumers really get screwed! Hmmmm, guess I'll start the Economic Stimulus, Mr. Bush, because now I have to buy a new washer!!!!!!!!
