I have purchased my first home and the seller was nice enough to buy me a home warranty with American Home Shield. I am 3 months in with my new home and the hot water has gone out.
I called AMS and a company called Drain Go came out, but they informed me that I would be out of pocket with parts. I didn't allow them to do any work until I spoke back with AMS because my contract clearly states all components and parts would be covered under the water heater. Once I called an agent, she agreed with what I said because she informed me that the things that are needed is considered to be parts. I receive another call on Friday (4/1/16) from AMS that the only thing covered is the hot water heater.
It is not stated in the contract like that and everyone knows you must have parts to make a hot water heater work.
Also, the person I spoke with today (4/5/16) informed me that I need parts to make a water heater work, but its not covered. I then stated that all calls are recorded and that he should go back and listen, but he is still trying to make me pay for something that is considered parts.
