Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! Do you have an electrical meter to test with and are you able and comfortable to perform disassembly procedures?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

There are no official electricians in the house and you probably know that electrical meters are not a gadget one has on hand. I'm a 70 y/o female who is waiting to have this thing fixed. If it is something you think I can do, then, by all means, please provide the information.


 

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
Many houses have a test meter on hand, that is why I asked. There is no way you are going to be able to diagnose and fix the machine without a test meter and some disassembly. I will place your question back to the list.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

And, I will be asking for my deposit back.


 


Asking me for a test meter is like me asking you if an angiogram machine is in your house to see if you have a blocked artery which is causing your chest pain.


 


I would like my deposit back please. I am not satisfied with your answer which is the condition for giving your company my amex #.


 

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
There was no answer provided, I just asked you a question. Would you like to wait for another to come on and see if they can help or would you like me to send your deposit in for a refund? There are many more wonderful techs on here that may be able to help you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I don't mean to be "testy", it's just that I'm visiting my daughter, I need to get things done and I don't have the necessary gadgets to fix the dishwasher.


You have been most kind and polite and yes, I would like my deposit back as it has already been charged to my account.


Thanks

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
I totally understand and appreciate the frustration a broken dishwasher can cause. I do think you will need a tech to diagnose this issue. These machines are very difficult to work on and will require a few special tools to even access. So, I am happy to send your deposit in for a refund. I hope you are able to enjoy some time with your daughter and don't let this pesky dishwasher get in the way of that. If you would like a referral to a servicer in your area, please let me know. I will just need your zip code. If I don't hear from you in 5 minutes, I will close this and send it in for a refund. There is, of course, no charge for the referral.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Question #1, do I have to pay for the referral- and--when may I expect the charge reversed?

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
No, as stated above, there is no charge for the referral. I will send the deposit in for a refund right away after you get your referral information but I don't know the process after that. I am just a fixer! Wink

Thank you for your help.

Great! The company below has the best reviews and is a Bosch Authorized Service Center! I have provided a link to their web page. I will wait 5 minutes after sending this before I close this thread to give you time to get to their page. You take care and have a great evening.
