Washing machines: Rant 1

Friday, January 8th, 2010

So, I bought a brand new Servis washing machine from Argos in August 2008. In the following 12 months it brokw down FIVE TIMES. Each time it needed parts replacing. Often the same part. Argos was very good about replacing the parts but refused to return it for a different model.

When a brand new washing machine breaks down 5 times in its first 12 months – IT IS A LEMON!

So, when it breaks down again, this time at 14 months, Argos says ‘no way, we dont care’ when I ask them to repair it again.

The fact that the last repair is only 3 months old and it is doing the same damned thing AGAIN, means their repair didn’t last. After an hour on the phone to them, I just gave up.

What I would love, is if someone with a van could take the machine to Argos in Nottingham for me, and dump it, still full of soapy water, in the middle of their sales floor. That would make my day.

However, I’ll just have to settle for never shopping there again.
