Your Questions About Appliance Repair Service Reviews

David asks…

I need a new washer and dryer?

So do I get a front load or top load? There are so many reviews it’s hard to tell which is better. What is a good brand to get and maybe even the style number.

James Conley answers:

Truthfully, I’d get a front loading machine. They are so much more energy efficient and easier on the clothing. And you can wash a larger load. Less loads = more savings. They spin out so much better that there is a lot less moisture left in the laundry and that equals much less time the dryer is running.

The trick to preventing the dreaded stinky front loader problem is to (1) leave the door ajar when it’s not in use. (2) Keep the front gasket clean; a quick wipe down with a little hot water and white vinegar is usually enough and (3) one load a month, run old towels, dog bedding, shop rags, something you don’t care if it gets a little bleached with dishwasher detergent and hot water. The dishwasher detergent removes all the laundry product build up inside the machine that adds to the stinky problem and keeps your filters clean. Use the powder only.

Before you buy, make sure there is a local repair man for that brand. In our rural area, there are some brands there is not an “authorized” repair facility for brands like LG or Samsung. If you need warranty work, you will have an issue getting anyone to come fix it because the company won’t pay the repair man the extra time and mileage for a long drive.

I have a GE stainless steel drum dryer that I am VERY happy with. It’s a lot better dryer than the Maytag it replaced. Make sure the dryer can easily dry as large a load as the washer can wash too.

Yeah, I could save a few bucks by buying at a big box store like Best Buy, Lowe’s or Home Depot but if I need service, it won’t be them coming to fix it. I go see our local appliance dealer who has always treated me really well. I know if he sells it, he will fix it. He often waives delivery fees because I’m 3 blocks from his store or deeply discounts a service call if the appliance in question is not worth repairing and I buy a new one from him. And many times over the years, I’ll call him, tell him the issue and he tells me how to fix it. In 27 years, I’ve paid for 3 service calls. And he does things like rearrange his repairman’s schedule or the delivery guys schedule to get me taken care of as soon as possible when something is broken down.

HE products are a little more expensive but check the number of loads the bottle, box says it will do. Don’t use more product than required. It’s hard because we’re used to dumping a bunch in our old washers. Measure carefully.

James asks…

Is my employer breaking laws?

My employer has warranty obligations for the televisions that they distribute. Not only is our customer service terrible, but the customer’s who have to go through exchange have to wait 6 – 9 months to receive a refurbished TV back due to being “out of stock”. They are never really out of stock. They always have new TVs and would always have refurbished stock if they didn’t sell them all the same week they receive it.

James Conley answers:

I have never seen any laws about time limits. It is just shoddy business practices. If I were a customer you can bet I would never deal with that company again. By keeping the repair back log so great the company is probably running the warranty out while the TV gets no use. There are a number of ways to post your bad reviews on the Internet – I always check there for recommendations on a brand of style of appliance etc. Sorry you work for a bad company.
I don’t know how far you want to take your complaint, but you could have a customer contact the Attorney General’s office in your state, with the complaint – with a carbon copy to the company. It may have some effect on them.

James Conley answers:

Affiliate marketing is an Internet-based marketing practice in which a business rewards one or more affiliate for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate’s marketing efforts.

Affiliate marketing is also the name of the industry where a number of different types of companies and individuals are performing this form of Internet marketing, including affiliate marketing, affiliate management companies, and in-house affiliate managers, specialized third party vendors, and various types of affiliates/publishers who promote the products and services of their partners.

Affiliate marketing overlaps with other Internet marketing methods to some degree, because affiliates often use regular advertising methods. Those methods include organic search engine optimization, paid search engine marketing, e-mail marketing, and in some sense display advertising. On the other hand, affiliates sometimes use less orthodox techniques, such as publishing reviews of products or services offered by a partner.
Affiliate marketing—using one website to drive traffic to another—is a form of online marketing, which is frequently overlooked by advertisers. While search engines, e-mail, and website syndication capture much of the attention of online retailers, affiliate marketing carries a much lower profile. Still, affiliates continue to play a significant role in e-retailers’ marketing strategies.
