My dishwasher's drain pump died when shards from a broken glass got into it. I took it to West Coast appliances on Gorge for repairs.
I was a bit worried at the beginning.
At first they were like "We don't normally take repairs from customers, we send a service guy out" then when they saw the dishwasher they were like "Oh those 18" portable dishwashers are all made in China junk, only built to last 5 years"... "It's not going to be worth repairs if we can even get parts for it, you want to buy yourself a full size built-in one"...
I'm like "First of all, I find it hard to believe that a dishwasher that costs $700 new is only built to last 5 years". "Second, it's a Kenmore, which is really a Frigidaire, which is decent quality stuff and I know you can get parts for it". "Third, If I had the space for a full size built-in dishwasher I would HAVE a full size built-in dishwasher".
Fuckers just hoped that they would get some clueless sap that would say "Oh ok, I'll take your word for it, I'll just spend $1000 and buy a new one from you". (My uncle is in the appliance biz so I know a little bit about these things)
So they took it in, and 2 weeks later it was fixed. And the bill was only $150. Apart from their BS at the beginning, and the length of time for repairs (Two weeks for a pump replacement is kind of bunk, but hey this is the island where people are on island time) it turned out OK.
