Daewoo Electronics Corporation Complaint - Daewoo's Shocking Service - Not Resolved, Unbelievably Bad Experience
My Daewoo Laundry machine broke down about a week ago. I have warranty on this product. Let me start by saying that all my laundry must be done by machine since I have a spur in my wrists, which is very painful when doing manual labor. In any case, technicians came to fix the unit a few days later, couldn’t, returned the next day, upon which they STILL couldn’t fix it. It turns out it was a problem that can’t be just fixed, but requires being shipped off to the factory for a full refurbishing or replacement. They said they would come back and try again on Sunday, but didn’t come all afternoon.
Finally we called, upon which they finally came. However, we had an important appointment later in the afternoon (around 6:30PM) and it became that after a few hours trying, there was no way that they would be able to fix it. So we called the manager and tried to explain the situation, upon which he said that on Monday, they would be “replacing the system on Monday.” We received no phone calls or a new unit on Monday, and finally at 10AM Tuesday, I called the Service Center again. I asked for the manager, and was told he was in a meeting so call later. I found this further incensing since I should have had a replacement unit by then, and ask for his superior who turned out to be [snip]. He said that he would fix the problem, and that he would tell his employee (the servicer) the fix the issue, upon which he sent two workers to take my defective laundry machine to the factory.
I explained to them that I needed to keep doing laundry, upon which they replied that they would just throw my laundry “into the back of the service truck” and do the laundry for me. I found this absolutely ridiculous and haven’t heard of anything like this in my life. I don’t understand why they couldn’t bring a new unit, replace it, and take away the old one, especially since technicians failed to fix the unit for 3 days. Through this whole process, my children have had to wear dirty clothes, not to mention all the time that I’ve had to use to solve this problem which has prevented me from cooking for my family or going to work. I got NO follow up calls from this so-called [snip] character, even though he promised to call me. When I called him to complain again, he picked up saying he was “out of the office.” He was apparently eating at a restaurant. I asked him who HIS superior was to which he replied [snip].
Apparently they were having a meal together, and he came onto the phone. [snip] retorted to me on the phone saying he was busy eating and was not interested in talking to me and that his responsibility was fulfilled when he sent two workers. He then went on to say something absolutely ridiculous, that he was “working in place of the CEO” and that he “had the authority to do whatever he wants.” He then told me, the customer, to “figure out and solve your own problem.” Not only has my experience with Daewoo been an absolute nightmare, but the people I dealt with in this company seem to have a highly delusional sense of self.
I implore you all to refrain from buying anything Daewoo – cars, electronics, anything. Please boycott this horrible company with me and my family.
