Pros: Large capacity, design, quiet, many cycles, progamming ability
Cons: Poor quality, average washing, poor warranty, problems with balancing, did I mention poor quality??
I have had my washing machine for exactly 2 years and it started making a racket a few weeks ago. We were shocked to realize they only give a 1 year warranty. We called a repariman and he told us the bearings were finished, just by spinning it with his hand. He says that it must have been leaking a little for a while and soap and water got under the tub and rusted the bearings and may have damaged the motor!! $400 estimate, plus the $80 already paid. DO not buy, bad design. He did mention not to wash with cold water, since the soap does not disolve as well and may risk to do this again, even if we fix it!! So much for the supposed Maytag repairman sitting around doing nothing, we waited 20 minutes on hold at Maytag/Whirlpool customer service!! Last one for me!!
