Does warranty include hauling away old appliance?

I have a washer that cant be repaired. Does my policy include disposal of the old washing machine? Overall I have no complaints except that there is no way to communicate with them.

User's recommendation: Good company, Limited communication.

I went 11 months without the heat pump in my home. got it serviced over a dozen times.

The servicing company told me they would NEVER say they could not fix it because that is what they got paid for, even though somtimes they would fix it and it would not be working again by the end of the day.

Meanwhile, in winter I am waking up to 56* in the house in the morning, in the summer the AC runs all day and I have $550 electric bills. AMS FINALLY replaced the unit after I insisted on a different service company or legal action, but I figure I paid for it through many months of $500 plus electric bills.

Terrible service

Had broken water heater. They didnt get a repairman iut for 4 days even after I explained that my 3 grandchildren live with me. No hot water! Their Plummer said they have to get approval from AHS to replace water heater but it would cost me another 1300 to bring up to code. Had a private Plummer install with all upgrades for 1300 total. Tried for weeks to connect with escalation dept to possibly get a small payout since we could wait so long for them. No one connected. I since cancelled policy &;;;;; they sent me bill for cancelling. Ive been their customer over 30 years!

Inadequate service

On 5/8/21 we had a terrible blockage in our drain line . I put in a request for service a about an half hour later the assigned contractor called and told me he did not have the equipment to fix the problem he asked me to call and have the request transferred to another contractor. I called a rep. and explained the situation and that we had total blockage with raw sewage coming up in all the showers she called a different different contractor. who notified me they could not respond due to their workload. I then called again and talked to a different rep. who assured me they would take care of the problem i waited until late after noon the request was still pending. I then called a contractor myself (Roter Rooter) who was able to come out that evening and cleared the blockage. I paid the requested amount and called another rep. I explained the problem he told me he would notify he superviser and they contact me I still have not heard from anyone at ahs and feel that I should be reimbursed

User's recommendation: never had a problem until this.

Bad Communication

Try to make contact with customer service. There seem to be only thickly accented foreigners answering and I could not understand at all. There is no email address. They have a chat where no one answers. And I was trying to give them a good suggestion.

User's recommendation: Don't count on any communication.

Need fax

I want to start off by saying I love American Shield. However, the customer service representative I spoke to had no clue about the services or contact numbers American Shield replacement services has available for customers. All I needed was the contact fax number to submit my documents, so I can get reimbursed for my dryer. She indicated there wasn't a fax number. Consequently, I was aware that there is one because I had received an email with fax, mail and email options. Unfortunately, I had a glitch with my emails and hoped I could call in and get it. Thankfully, I was able to regain my email access to get the fax number.

User's recommendation: I would recommend that CSR have all contact numbers available. In addition, if uncertain of information don't say there isn't one available.

Billing

Contract 22453**** On june 14, 2020 i placed a service request for a stopped up kitchen sink and paid the fee via american express. The contractor could not get to us for 6 days, so i had to use a 24 hour provider. I called back, spoke to a rep and canceled the request. I also called the contractor. You gave me credit but now you have rebilled the $100. Please reverse that charge.

Furnace leak

Check on contractors they are sending before they arrive

First, I have no problem with the service or value of AHS. I have been a subscriber for over 15 years. I do have an issue with one or more of the contractors that they use. the latest experience is with a plumber based out of PA and NC. I should have heeded the reviews I read about this company (Grade A Plumbing). Most of what I read said they would come to your house and find things that are not covered by the visit and scare you in to buying an extra service. This happened to me. I was told that it was highly recommended that i replace a supply hose to my toilet with a metal one and that it would cost an additional $110. the hose cost less than $10 and I had already paid AHS for a service call. Where this may be legal, it sure was not fair. I should have stopped the hose replacement, but I am not a plumber and did not want them to refuse to finished the covered part of the job. Do your research and ask for another contractor from AHS is you do like what you learn.

So you want the plumber to just accept the $75 that AHS pays the plumber for everything he does and give you the “free to you” stuff that AHS covers (meaning the plumber has to absorb the rest of the expense). AHS Contractor Relations will not allow their plumbers to charge AHS above the fixed flat rate which is the same $75 for each call, regardless of how many parts are needed, or how many return visits, or how much labor is required.

You get what you pay for, which is $75 worth. The plumber didn’t invest years of his life to become a licensed plumber just to get $75 at each house. Somebody has to PAY something more or the plumber’s business will go under. All AHS customers want everything to be “covered”.

Coverage means no reimbursement from AHS though.

If they charge AHS more than your $75, they will lose their preferred ranking and lose jobs to the competitors. The business model doesn’t work to the satisfaction of anyone but AHS.

Their contractors seem to be working with them on this scheme. I had a contractor find all sorts of things “wrong” with my AC.

All of which wouldn’t be covered and would cost me thousands. After fighting with AHS over it I ended up canceling my warranty and calling in an unrelated company. Nothing they said was wrong with my unit actually was.

Cost me less than 200 to have it cleaned and checked over. Absolutely nothing else was wrong with it.

@PissedConsumer1699131

Since it only needed $200 to fix it, why use a home warranty? Let me guess—you were hoping they would replace it.

No such luck with a home warranty: the claim will either be denied, partially denied with out of pocket costs that NOBODY is happy about, or the repair will be “covered” by the HVAC company at their expense, NOT AHS’s.

If the latter is the case, be prepared to wait weeks for parts and return visits, and numerous repair attempts while you pull out your hair in frustration. Why would ANYbody in their right mind use a home warranty????

Our dishwasher went nuts. Tech Comes in and says the dishwasher isn’t mounted correctly. Takes out the bolts holding it in and removes it to unplug it till the part comes in. Part comes in, installs it then just shoved the unit back into the hole without mounting it...

I am in similar situation. The dishwasher replaced the pump, and didn't secure all connections.

By next day the surrounding floor and cabinets were damaged. AHS claimed secondary damages are not covered.

The dishwasher defends the it is plumbing issue... Need advise on what should be my steps to not incur all the cost of repair.

American Home Shield is very difficult to reach by phone. The online chat was quick to respond, but they stopped before resolving my issue. I'll be disputing their charge with my credit card company. I'm sorry, but that's all the words I have to describe the situation....
