Finally listened to what the problem was with the dishwasher




Review of Appliance Repair Specialist

The first man that showed up didn't listen to me whatsoever. I told him where the leak was. He did not care to unscrew the bottom part of the dishwasher and look underneath it on the right side where the leak was coming from. He persisted to try to lecture me, a 50 year old woman, how do wash my dishes, what soap to use, what cycle to set my dishwasher, if I have hard water etc. and on top of that ordering a wrong seal for my door. Maybe that is a standard questionnaire the mechanics ask the owner. I don’t mind answering them IF they listen to me and not dismiss problem. Then he said it’s ok to use the dishwasher in the meantime. Really! Was he offering to pay for the water damage to my cabinets and walls from the leak and the fungus. He was in my house for less than 5 min. The second visit went a little better. The repair man stayed a little bit longer. He waited for the washing cycle to run for a little bit. The leak was not reproducing itself. Finally I persuaded him, after he tried telling me my garbage disposal was installed backwards, to look underneath the dishwasher and unscrew the bottom plate. Eureka! The water was dripping on the right side. He managed to fix my problem. I appreciated that. If the cycle ran longer, he would have been able to see that the drip of water turned into a large puddle. I appreciate him taking his time to really listen to me and taking the time to unscrew the bottom plate and fixing the problem on the spot.
