Lowes Warranty Advantage Reviews (10)
Lowes sets a repair date, you stay home and wait and the service provider doesn't come because they are not getting the same information from Lowes.
This happened three times! Lowes refuses to pick up a phone and communicate with the provider all of which do not care about your problem. Lowes makes promises that they ust can't and don't keep !What a scam ! Never again
Called the Warranty Number provided and waited on line for an hour or more and they set me up with National Appliance Repair for a serviceman to come out and repair my washer the following Wednesday. I received a call from them 2 hours before the scheduled time telling me to ignore the message from the Warranty Office because the serviceman would not be there. I am a widowed single woman holding down a full time job and my washing machine that isn't even 3 years old is out of commission. They refused to even come out after I expressed my dissatisfaction with their service.
So on Thursday I called the Warranty Office again and they set me up with another serviceman for next week. Lowes extended services are complete crap. They hire low lives to repair their products and they don't care about customer service. I looked up this new serviceman online and what I found out is he doesn't even return phone calls or doesn't show up.
My next step is to call corporate Lowes and complain that if my washer is not fixed in 2 weeks they need to provide me with a brand new washer for a part that could have easily been fixed by a reputable serviceman. Next call will be to Maytag for their cheap parts in their washers.
User's recommendation: Do not buy any appliance from Lowes and do not buy an extended warranty.

I am disgusted with Lowe’s and their Service Advantage program. Our 22 month old LG refrigerator went out on May 15th. We are scheduled for repair June 4th, 3 weeks later. This is absolutely unacceptable! We have purchased Lowe’s appliances for many years but this is the last we will deal with them.
Review: On December 31, 2010 I purchased a Frigidaire dishwasher from Lowe’s. At the same time, I took out Lowe’s Extended Protection Plan.
The Extended Protection Plan is my biggest problem. On May 1st, my dishwasher stopped pumping the water out. On May 2nd I called a local repairman I have used in the past. He was at my house an hour later. Because of the price of the parts, he suggested I use my warranty. I called Lowe’s Service Advantage and that’s when my problems began. An appointment was set for the next day and I thought “Great”. The next day, the service provider called and said he other things to do, that he knew what was wrong and he would order the part and fix the machine on May 14th. He never showed or called and I started trying to get some answers from Lowe’s Service Advantage and the local Lowe’s store.
The Lowe’s Extended Protection Plan is a farce. It is set up so that the customer will be without their appliance for at least two weeks. In my case, I am almost six weeks out and am no closer to getting my machine fixed than I was on May 2nd. Lowe’ service people tried for three days to contact a non-responsive service provider while I was left hanging. Nobody bothered to get back to me. After more than two weeks and a big runaround, I wrote the president of Lowe’s a letter. All that got me was being assigned to an “Executive Assistant”. He was not any better at communicating or getting anything done then the people at Lowe’s Service Advantage.
In the end, I had to start all over again with a diagnostic service call on May 20th from a new service provider. Welcome to at least another two weeks without a dishwasher. This service provider is as bad as Lowe’s. After 5 phone messages and one email, they still have not responded with a scheduled repair date. This week will be four weeks since their man made his initial diagnosis.Desired Settlement: Repair or Replacement
Review: I have been having problems with my [redacted] washing machine for over a month. I purchased this washer from Lowes on 4/12/09. I also purchased an extended warranty. The washer will start to operate but will not switch cycles. It will stop working and smell like it is getting hot. Lowes had a service center named [redacted]/ [redacted] appliance come to repair it. They have been here on 4 different occasions. First replacing a motor, next replacing a clutch. The 3rd time the repair man could not figure it out. He called Whirlpool for assistance. I then had to call Lowes Advantage to open another claim since the service center closed the previous claim. Then it took 1 and a half weeks to get a timer and another part replaced. These are the parts Whirlpool recommended to repairman. Again I am still having the same problems. I called Lowes Advantage again today to request a different service center to repair my washer. Obviously this repair center does not know what they are doing. I was told I have no choice but to use this service center. I have a family of 5 plus a grandmother in a nursing home. I wash clothing for 4 adults and 2 young children. The children and myself have to wear uniforms. I work 40 plus hours a week. It is getting very difficult to go to the laundramat and family members homes to wash all our clothing. This is taking a lot of time out of my daily life. I am requesting this issue to be examined. I am a very unhappy customerDesired Settlement: replace washing machine it is a lemon

Review: I bought a dryer from Lowes I called for a service call because my dryer was not working I could not find my receipt they found it and sent out a company to fix it, they replaced the timer because it would not shut off and a heating element which was burnt out. The dryer work for one day and the timer is not working and now there is a red glow and heat coming out of the left inside vent, the dryer will not shut off. We had to unplug it for it to turn off. They were sending the repair company out on Saturday July 13th we had to have my sister come and sit because we were going out of town they never showed up. On Monday 15th I called they then were sending out the repair company on Thursday18th to fix it. I called on Wednesday to confirm the appointment. The service repair center is now claiming I don’t have a warranty and the repair company said it could be a electric issue, plug issue (which we had to buy from Lowes or they would not install it) or a venting issue it is a direct vent to the outside. They said they would send a repair company but I would have to pay. They tried to repair my dryer and made it worst it is now a safety hazard. I would like them to repair or replace the defective dryerDesired Settlement: I would like them to repair or replace the defective dryer

[redacted].[redacted] voice ###-###-####. This morning in regards to the dryer she informs me that they did not handle Lowes repairs after 2010. So this complaint would need to be redirected to Lowes. Can you please advise me on what the next step is? I bought a dryer from Lowes in 2012. (Lows came out to fix my dryer in July 2013) I called for a service call because my dryer was not working I could not find my receipt Lowes found it and sent out a company to fix it, they replaced the timer because it would not shut off and a heating element which was burnt out. The dryer work for one day and stop working there is now a red glow and heat coming out of the left inside vent, the dryer will not shut off. We had to unplug it for it to turn off. Lowes was sending the repair company out on Saturday July 13th we had to have my sister come and sit because we were going out of town they never showed up. On Monday 15th I called Lowes then was sending out the repair company on Thursday18th to fix it. I called on Wednesday to confirm the appointment. The service repair center is now claiming I don’t have a warranty and the repair company said it could be an electric issue, plug issue (which we had to buy from Lowes or they would not install it) or a venting issue it is a direct vent to the outside. Lowes also claimed that I did not have a warranty and they could not fine my receipt now. They said they would send a repair company but I would have to pay. Lowes tried to repair my dryer and made it worst it is now a safety hazard. I would like them to repair or replace the defective dryer.
Review: I have been dealing with my refrigerator from Lowe's since November. The unit has two ice makers and neither have worked since November. I have missed work multiple times to meet technicians who clearly cannot fix the unit. The last two times I have called Lowe's Service Advantage to say this issue has not been fixed they have said they need [redacted] to come out "one more time" to say the unit cannot be repaired. When I told the technician this the last time he said he couldn't stay that because he would lose his job. He ordered another water valve (that had just been replaced) and came yesterday to install it. It still did not fix the problem and I called Lowe's Service Advantage today, as I was instructed to do. The technician from [redacted] (who still is afraid of losing his job) ordered another part because he doesn't know what else it could be. Now Lowe's says I must wait until he installs this part. As long as they are replacing parts I cannot get a new refridgerator. They say this is just the second service call since it wasn't more than 30 days between issues. It doesn't matter that I have been dealing with this issue since November and have missed countless hours of work to wait on technicians.Desired Settlement: I want a buy back of the refrigerator so I can purchase a new one! I do not want to keep dealing with this same issue knowing the technician will never admit the unit cannot be fixed.

Review: I purchased a Samsung dishwasher from Lowes in January of 2012 at that time I also purchased a 3-year protection plan. On August 19th 2013 my dishwasher stopped working so I called to have service done under my protection plan, and was scheduled an appointment for a service person to come out on the 20th from 8-12. On the 20th I received a phone call from On the spot appliance ad about 11:30 stating they need to order a part and he was not even going to come out at look at the dishwasher, but would call me when the part came in. He did not call until August 26th and set up to come out on the 27th. He did install the new part and left my home. At that time I loaded the dishwasher and tried to run it and it did not work so I called back [redacted] and he said he would call me the next day to set up another time to come out. I never received a call so I called Lowes back again and was told he was the only provider in my area and they set up yet another appointment for [redacted] to come back out on 9/3/2013 form 8-12. On the 3rd I never was called form the service man nor did he show up so at about 12:30 I called back to Lowes and was told they were sorry and the could reschedule me for the next day. I had already spent 2 days home and changed many plans to accommodate the service man and was not willing to waste more time waiting for him. I asked to see if there was someone else who could service it and again was told no [redacted] was the only one in my area So I was then transferred to a supervisor who then told me there was another provider but they could not come out until 9/11/13, I explained that I did not see that as acceptable as I was already dealing with a broken dishwasher for over 2 weeks and was not willing to wait another 8 days. The supervisor just kept repeating herself and was not willing to find a sooner appointment time. I live in a large area and had I known that there was only one provider that they would sent out I would have never bought this product form Lowes. I then received a call from the service man and Lowes stating [redacted] had ordered a part yet again and are waiting for it to come in..... yet he has never even looked at the dishwasher to even know the issue...hence the first part that he put in that was not the issueDesired Settlement: because you are unable to fix my dishwasher I am requesting to return my broken dishwasher and receive a full refund for the purchase price and the protection plan as well
This complaint should have been redirected and filed against Lowes per the previous email below. [redacted].*. has not administered the Lowes Warranty Advantage program since October 16, 2010. **. [redacted]'s purchase was January 2013. Please contact me directly with any questions.
