Whirlpool — Poor customer service

139 Reviews
I had raised a complaint on 4-Oct-2010 as my refrigerator is not working (SR Number - BG[protected]). I got a message that the issue has been assigned to HSR Layout branch 123. I called the customer care (080-60008558) several times after that and setup reminders, but nobody has attended to my complaint yet.
When asked to talk to customer care manager on 6-Oct-2010, I was told that he is busy, and sometimes when the executive forwarded the call to the manager, he did not attend the call.

I would like to raise the complaint against this kind of poor service being done by the Service center ( HSR Layout branch 123), and the customer care manager who was busy to attend the call today, as his primary duty should be to attend to the customer complaints and get the issue resolved.

Today 7-Oct-2010....still waiting for the service personnel........such shame on whirlpool's customer service....I am sure I would not buy any whirlpool product in future......

Whirlpool — Complaint for Whirlpool wachine Machine


I had complaint for several times about my wachine machine atleast from last two months at your Karnal (Haryana) service center.

But till date i didn't get any response from karnal service center.

Pls. do needful.
I purchased a whirlpool washing machine some 6 years ago and now there is a problem with the machine. I contacted the customer care service center in Bangalore #60008558, and they assured me that the service person will visit my place within 24 hours. Everyday we get a call from the so called engineer and he will visit that day, and he does not turn up. I have been waiting for him for the past four days, and he is still to turn up. I have called the customer care at least 20 times for the past 4 days and they keep assuring that he will visit before 8 pm or that they will get back in 2 hours, which they have never done.

If that engineer has too many visits for that day, why cant they assign the job so another engineer.

Is there no responsible person whom I can contact to resolve this issue? I am really fedup of calling their customer care.

Whirlpool — Very poor after sales service

I had bought a semi automatic whirlpool washing machine a year ago. The machine is not working now. Since it is under 2 years warranty, I called up the customer care and logged a service request on Nov 1st.
After following up with them a few times, they sent a guy to my place, who checked the machine and suggested that certain part of the machine has to be replaced. Said, if they have that part in stock, he will come and replace it the next day. If not, it may take 2 or 3 days. I waited for 2 days for the guy to turn up with the machine part, but nobody turned up. I called the customer care again, they assured the service person will be coming today. Days passed, nobody turned up. I kept calling and was always answered in the same way. After 11 days, the update given to me was that the machine has to be lifted to their service center. Still nobody came. to take the machine. I feel ashamed of myself to keep calling them again and again, but can't help it... On 12th day, I lost my patience and scolded the operator, and he assured again that my problem will be rectified that day. Till now, no one has come, and I'm pondering over ways to resolve this issue. A reputed firm like whirlpool should not be behaving in such an irresponsible and fraud way to a customer. I dont understand why they have set up a customer care cell if they dont intend to resolve customer complaints. I feel they are selling defective products under fake warranty. Shame on them and their poor service. I don't know whom to address my grievance. Somebody please help to file a consumer cell complaint.
Registered a complaint with Whirlpool Customer care Chennai and no one called back. Whenever we call the answer would be no availability of spare parts. Even for Courtesy sake, customer service don't call the customer and update status. When escalated to Manager, he said would give a call in 1 hr. no call even for next 5 days. When I gave a call back, his question was "did I spoke to you". When I escalated this to the Customer care office in Chennai - they replied that they would escalate and I would get a call in 6 hrs... Its been 72 hrs and no call. When I call the Gurgaon office, their reply is this is office closing time, so we would speak to you tomorrow. No one in whirlpool customer care is ready to speak to the customer and no one takes interest to resolve the queries. Its only my money & time wasted in the phone calls and left with frustration.

I bought Refrigerator and Washing machine from jainsons. Well i like to share the bad experience i had with whirlpool service technicians, my product arrived one week before the technician and we have been waiting and waiting, because the delivery people told us don't open the washing machine and refrigerator until the service technician come and he is the only person can open the packing. And if you open we are not accept if the product have any dent or damage any place so we waited. Well service technicians came after may be 8 calls we made with showroom people and also couple of visits also made to showroom asking to send service technicians, finally technician came yesterday and they gave big list to buy accessories from them. Trolley - Rs 1500.00., Cover - 500.00., clastride - 1800 Rs (they told clastride will take out iron contents out from water) and they not requesting to buy these items they are ordering us to buy these items. They also said if we not buy, the machine will broke. Well asked them please open the package and do the demo, they open the package and acted like they got call from their company and ran away gave some numbers to call them back, leave more mess in our house, we called and still they never show up. Basically i am resident of US and i know pretty much about these machines, and if the machine not work properly without accessories then they don't sell without them, we all know that but why they forcing us to buy from them only. How come the machine will broke without the stand. Also they telling us to buy voltage protector for refrigerator, But on machine they printed we never need to provide such a thing. And i called some of my friends and share my problems with them because they knew very well about service technicians, Interesting things they told me is, every service technician making about Rs 30, 000.00 extra money every month when selling accessories with extra money for their own pocket, that's why they forcing us to buy them. Innocent customers like us don't have a chance to know all this so think about it. I don't know how many people sharing this profit, because how come the department mangers getting blind. Why they don't want to know customer satisfaction. They get all the information in single phone call with customers like us. Well friends be careful with these people they tell you to buy all junks which is not required.
We bought Whirl pool Washing Machine on 1st Jan at viveks-mylapore(Chennai, tamil Nadu). But, the model (Lilac) which we selected was stopped and told they will replace with new model & upgraded features. But motor which we selected was 760 and they hey gave 380 (downgraded one) after 3 weeks .So we paid additional amount and bought 700S model. But they came 1 week after demo and when we trying washing found rinsing is not working.Executive told they will replace it . But still they have not replaced yet.

Today is 10th feb, still we cannot wash with washing machine after 40 days of purchase.
We are totally disappoint with the service.

Please refund us or replace with new washing machine..!

Call center executive are not responded properly, disconnecting the phone calls, banging the phone calls.

Expecting to do the needful at the earliest.

Whirlpool Fridge — Non Attendance of service call

Dear Sir,

I have a fridge of the above mentioned brand and I have registered a complaints with the call centre and also with service centre the no is 9833829768 (Mr.Akram) but when ever i call i get reasons and taht they will do the needful tommorow but as tommorow never comes my fridge is not working since 12 days and this the service provided as i am under the service contract no HP04063789.

As you know in summer time without fridge is a major problem.

So I request you to please look into the matter and do the needful

My. mobile no 9819353179


I had purchased a fully automatic washing machine in 2005 from Whirlpool considering it to be a leading brand.Upon termination of my warranty period I had entered into an AMC for 2 years ending on Nov 2009.

There have been instances when my machine malfunctioned whereupon i had to call up the Customer Care Centre & had to wait for 2 days for the engineer to turn up & identify the issue only to know that there was some part that was required to be replaced. Anticipating that the part would be promptly replaced/ repaired, i had to wait for a week only to know that the part is not available in the Service Centre & had to be imported from Ghaziabad which took another 3 days to reach the Service centre.

A similar issue happened on 04-May-09. My machine stopped functioning for which I called up the customer care to lodge a complaint on 05-May-09. The engineer turned up on 06-May-09 & checked the machine & told us that he would come back. I waited till 08-May-09 & re-lodged the complaint with the customer care who in turn assured me that the engineer would come on 09-May-09. Since morning on 09-May-09 i had been calling up the customer care to ask the status of the complaint but they kept assuring me that the engineer would visit my place by 7 pm on 09-May-09. At 7:15 pm i called up the engineer on his mobile only to know that the part is not available in the service centre & asked us to speak to the customer care. I thereafter called up the customer care & spoke to Sunita (Team leader) who assured us that she would investigate on the availability of the part & revert within few minutes. She also assured us that the machine would be repaired by 13-May-09. However, till 11:30 am on 10-May-09 we have not received a call from the customer care. I then called up the customer care back & spoke to Fiama (Team leader) who again assured that the request would be met urgently since the part is not available in service centre.

On 09-May-09 since morning i was given fraudulent assurances that some one would visit my place. Whirpool being such an established company, it is stupid to believe that the parts are not available in the service centre & takes 2 weeks for the part to be made available.

We being full time employed & having a 1.5 year old child, it becomes very difficult to manage washing clothes. We had bought the washing machine for our convenience but it has become a nuisance. Whats the use of promising us best/ prompt after sales service if they need 2 weeks to be resolved every time? This is a fraud that the company is engaging itself into by luring their customers to buy their products & landing up only assuring us of quick service.

Why can't the company atleast provide a spare machine till the time our machine is repaired? If they can't repair the same urgently i would like to be compensated with Rs.20, 000/- for the trauma & the inconvenience caused to myself.

I hope the consumer forum would attend our complaint & penalise Whirlpool for not delivering quality standards.
My father bought a whirlpoooool Washing machine and also he has extended the warranty on a guise that the customer service would be good. But I don’t know what the customer service is doing by receiving complaint. 30 days and more had gone since I lodge my complaint but till now I am spending Rs. 50 for my mobile to call them but they respond that they are behind me and ask me to see my back to see the service man, but I see only the walls of my home. The administration of customer care telling that the engineer would come but those persons must have many criminal case of worst. They react like wise. They don’t know how to speak with the customer. They are not keeping their words.

For instance one customer service person who had been allotted to rectify my complaint told his name as Kishore, krishna, balaji, sukumar, but till now I don’t know his real name his number is 9600065773.
Suppose I think to go legally to consumer court, they would simply order for the rectification of mistake and the award would be very meager amount for my suffering. Because unfortunately I am a criminal advocate and I know very well. If I sort for any press help I don’t know weather they would help me or not.
What is the solution?

Please terminate the person who holds the number 9600065773 who represents himself as a service person

Please do something
