Dishwasher delivered broken | Lowes review from Barnegat Township, New Jersey

The first time I used the dishwasher it would not run through an entire cycle. Called Lowes. They sent a repair man out two weeks after the call. The repair man said it was error 13. Needed a bigger valve not enough water pressure.Got the valve in two days. Repair man was a "no show", for the second appt. I called back Lowes they got them to come back 4 days later to install. Still doesn't work.Lowes made three other repair calls "all no shows". I missed 4 days of work.Lowes will not call me back.I've had a broken dishwasher since October 7th.They say they will call me back and don't. Don't go to lowes and don't buy Whirlpool. I am out 400.00 and 4 days worth of pay.Worst two companies ever!!

Another Broken Whirlpool Dishwasher from Lowes...

I had a similar experience. Bought new Whirlpool dishwasher from Lowes and within a few days, it started turning itself off mid-cycle.

We had better luck with repair people (A&E) coming on the appointed day, though they were 1.5 hours late two out of three times.

I wrote a review about the specific product on the Lowes site and even though it met their policies, they emailed me that my review was rejected. That tells me that reviews on their site can't be trusted any more than the products they sell.

Lowe's Switch and Bait-quoted one price and charged another | Lowes review from Brunswick, Maine

I ordered 17 Pella Windows from Lowe's located in Augusta, Maine. The project specialist, James Squeglia, came to my home and did the preliminary measurement for the window sizes. Then within a week the installer came to my home and did the final measurements. James gave me a install quote of $101.69 per window. Keep in mind that Lowe's advertises the install cost at $99.00. In any event, I told him to go ahead and order the windows. He came to my home and brought the papers for me to sign. This where I missed the boat. At the time I was placing a new floor in my family room and was preoccupied. I signed the agreement. The next day I was reviewing the cost and the installation cost was now $178.38 per window. I called Jim and he told me the increase was due to the level of trim around the windows and the installer said it would be time consuming and would take two and half days to complete the project. Well as usual Lowe's screws up again. The order, I was told was placed on October 06, 2010. Lowe's messed up and the order was not placed until seven days later. Then I get a call from the installer informing me that he will not be able to install the windows until November 29, 2010 due to his workload. I then called Lowe's and talked to Janet in install and informed her this was not acceptable because I did not want to be installing windows when the snow was flying. Lowe's fortunately had another installer that was located in my home town. And Janet made arrangements for the windows to be installed in a reasonable manner. I received a call from Janet and she asked if it was okay with me for the replacement installer to install the windows on Sunday. I said no problem. The installer did an excellent job! What was the consequences? The quote from the first installer was based on two and a half days. The replacement installer replaced all seventeen windows in six hours. This is where I am pissed off.....I was told the increased cost was due the level of trim. The replacement installer told me that he would have charged $130.00 per window. The monetary damage is about $800.00. This to be was a classic bate and switch. In addition, to the insult to injury Lowe's requires that in order to do the preliminary measurement they require a fee of $35.00. Which I paid. If you purchase the windows they then give you credit off the final purchase price. On the invoice the credit did no appear. I questioned the credit not appearing on the invoice and was told by James that he adjusted the price of the windows to reflect the credit. Never happened the credit showed up as .01 cents. As you can imagine I am not a happy camper. This to me was one big scam.

This bait n switch seems to be par of their contractor service desk...(any large purchase)....The price match competitors then deliver a inferior product. Lowes claims they operate as such to prevent apples to apples implimentation, But end providing the consumer with rotten apples. Then have a hard time hororing their coupons or rebates...

Blinds | Lowes review from Spotsylvania, Virginia

Awful service, Very unorganized. I ordered Blinds from this store paid in full for installation, on the day of installation which I took the afternoon off they call me with 1 hour delay saying they forgot to order brackets, another 2 weeks pass by and I recieve the brackets but when I call they say they don't have anybody available for installation. I would never go back to this store. They don't have anyone helping you withe the issue they are responsible for. They just pass you off to eachother on the phone.I hate LOWES and will never shop from their store.

You should call Lowes Customer Care. They make sure that these type of issues get resolved, and they are really appreciative of any feedback from customers. 1-800-44LOWES (1-800-445-6937).

Lowes Installation

Poor workmanship, no one knows whats going on. | Lowes review from Dallas, Texas

Bought a pella door from lowes and had it installed- the contractor who installed the door cut corners and left things undone. Trying to get lowes back out to finish the job has been a nightmare. Know one seems to know what is going on and I get a different story every time I call or go to the store in person. I will never buy anything from lowes again. This was at the store on Wilmington Pike in Centerville, ohio. Sorry customer service, sorry products, sorry contractors that they must have gotten off of the street. Please rely to this.

I had troubles with Lowes at Troy AL.

The main problem relates to emplyoees; they lack of basic skills their jon may require.No body knows nothing about nothing; when you get an estimate is usually wrong or 3-4 times higher than any other (well qualified) contractor; in addition a few employees are rude and seem to care nothing about costumers.

Lowe's Credit Card | Lowes review from Arlington, Texas

I had a Lowe's Credit Card (GE Mony Bank). I made purchases over two years, amounting to $5000. I recieved a bonus check from my employer. I used this money to pay off my bill. GE Money Bank cashed the check and then REFUSED to apply this toward my balance. I made numerous attempts (in writing, phone calls..). I was receiving collection calls from GE Money Bank for a debt that I had already paid. I had to file a complaint with my State Attorney General's Office in order to made GE Money Bank do the right thing! Unbelievable !

Imposible to Reach a Live Person at Lowe's! | Lowes review from Tampa, Florida

Worst customer service EVER!!!! I bought a vanity/lavatory/faucet online and paid $406.60. 1 month later I noticed on my credit card statement that Lowe's had charged me twice for the same item! I've tried contacting a live person through the 1-800 # three times and waited over 30 minutes each time, but I couldn't reach a live person! When I called the store where I picked up the lavatory, they told me that I had to keep calling the 1-800#. I will never go to Lowe's again! I need Lowe's to return my money to my account!

Call the story on a Monday morning (between 6 and 8) and ask for the credit coordinator.

There are also two 800 numbers to call. One if for us and one is for you. The one for you in on the back of your card. You should not let the credit center influence how you feel about Lowe's, since the store and the credit center are two different things completely.

But the easiest solution is to call the credit coordinator.

Made a mistake about delivery and installization | Lowes review from Washington, District Of Columbia

I was called and told my carpeting would be installed on 12/15/2010. No one showed up and when I called they said no one had called and my carpeting was not in yet. I had to drain two water-beds to prepare for installization which was very difficult as I am a senior citizen. Now they say the carpeting won't be in until the 19th. I can't refill the beds and drain again. No one at the store is any help. They just don't care. I am really pissed. Next time I'll go to Home Depot.

The were not honest | Lowes review from Virginia Beach, Virginia

we bought a trim a tree tree for christmas. Beautiful tree $299.00, The Christmas of 06. When we put the tree up this year half the lights would not work. We called Lowes in Pocomoke,Md. they told us to bring it back for a refund, since the warranty for the lights was 5 years for the and 3 for the tree. since we live 50 miles away this was no small task. When we got there they said they couldn't do any thing about it. I think they should stand by their products. My husband and I are senior citizes and this tree was heavy and no one would help us remove the tree from our car. To make a long story short we will not be using our lowes card any more or buying anything at all from lowes. The Home depot store is ja little farther away, Thanks, Mr and Mrs Charles Massey

I had a similar situation this morning. A customer comes in and wants to know what Lowe's is going to do for her since her Over the range microwave quit working after 5 years.

Lowe's offers a 1 year replacement on something small like that but the customer didn't purchase nor would it have mattered anyway since the Micro is 5 yrs old. I gave her the number to the service advantage and told her to call for service, she said that its going to cost her, and I told her yes, it will, but it's not Lowe's problem that the micro only lasted 5 years, she should call GE and complain to them. Same with your Christmas tree. You had the darn thing for years now all of a sudden cause some light went out you want a big refund.

I say you don't deserve any refund. At most I'd discount a new string of lights for you.

LOL hahahaa!! Exactly.

Its 4 years old. What do they expect?

You have to store it properly and take care of it if you expect it work after so long after purchasing. Lowes is not responsible for that.

There are a few problems I have with your story.

1. Nobody would help you take it off the top of your car? A seasonal or lawn and garden associate would have, had you asked. If you had to wait, then that's the price you pay for being unable to do it yourself. But I don't believe they simply refused.

2. The warranty may be 5 years or 20 years, but it's a manufacturer warranty. Lowe's does not give extended warranties on Christmas trees or Christmas lights. If somebody told you to come in, you should have gotten their name and their position so they could be held accountable.

3. Lowe's, the retailer, and whatever brand Christmas tree you bought, probably aren't one in the same. So Lowe's doesn't have an obligation to stand by the product years later. They offer a 90 day guarantee that you'll enjoy the item, with conditions, and if it's something that Lowe's owns, like Kobalt, then they'll offer a warranty. But Christmas trees and other seasonal items are just that. Seasonal items that they sell.

This is not an issue with Lowe's but with the manufacturer.

SO you bought a tree 4 years ago and now the lights dont half work and its lowes fault? How about finding the light or the loose connection.

But call good year and tell them your tires are worn out after 4 years. LOL
