Pros:NONE

Cons:Extremely unreliable - do not buy a Maytag product. Poor customer service - useless.

The Bottom Line: Poor quality machine - broke after two years which is how long the warranty is. Paid $150.00 for repair. Leaks from hub four months after repair. Now they want $140.00.


Bought the new Maytag Washer and dryer 2/2004 for my new home. About two years later the washer made a noise like a jet plane when in the spin cycle. Of course my 2-year warranty was up. I had to pay $150.00 for the main hub/bearing/seal to be replaced in January of 2006. Now it is May of 2006 and when the machine empties, I get a nice sudsy lake forming under the machine - probably the main seal went again. I called customer service and the lady said that the last repair is only guaranteed for 90 days. Well of course 90 days has passed (it is now May of 2006) and now they want to charge me another $140.00 for another service call. I made the appointment because we need the washer but I may cancel it and leave this piece of junk at the curb. I bought a Maytag because my mother had one that is about 20 years old and still going. But the new ones are not the same - stay away!! I bought a heavy duty commercial model for my family of four and this thing didn't even last two years before having issues. I will never buy another Maytag product again. It also empties too fast and suds form at the top of the riser pipe. To solve this, I have paper towels tyrwrapped around the pipe to absorb the suds. I also have a Maytag dehumidifier that works great but the plastic housing vibrates so much that it sounds like someone is using a drill in your basement - poor design. They have to support the plastic housing so it doesn't vibrate.
