    Jan 1, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review

  • Do not buy a Maytag!!!

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: It made the wife happy(temporarily).
    Cons: There's a 15 word maximum hear....not enough room.

    Summary: Absolutely terrible!  First off, the salesman sold my wife on these on the premiss that they would include a 5 year warranty.  Total lie to get her to buy.  I guess we should have examined the paper work when it was delivered to see that ... read more

    Pros: NONE.  Why is there not a zero or minus star category?
    Cons: Cannot be balanced.  Coins in water pump.  NO Technical support.
    GFCI required for Fire hazard.

    Summary: My husband bought this Maytag/Samsung/Whirlpool junk for me as a gift!  He has destroyed our laundry room by screwing plywood to the floor and has framed the bottom of the washer with 6"X6" lumber in an effort to keep it from "walking" into the ... read more

  • Love this machine!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing. Very little wear & tear on clothes.
    Cons: Washer cycles take a little longer than top loaders as there is no agitator.

    Summary: Purchased this washer with the matching dryer 8 months ago and love it love it love it. It washes beautifully, and the dryer cycles are short. Clothes come out of it almost dry already. The washer is very quiet (they both are) and I particularly like the ... read more

    Pros: NOTHING.
    Cons: EVERYTHING.(see review)

    Summary: Well well well... What more can I say about this machine that others haven't already said? I REALLY wish I had known about all these problems two years ago when we first purchased this washer. It has been nothing but problems since day 1. I really ... read more

    Pros: It is so pretty....and that is where it ends.
    Cons: It walks and smells

    Summary: We purchased the Maytag Neptune washer because of the improved washing ability, the low usage of water and the overall quality of Maytag products. Lowe's installed our lovely washer and dryer into our brand new home on a flat concrete floor. It LOOKED ... read more

    Pros: On the surface nice looking, nice tones, washes well.
    Cons: Too loud, too many vibrations, cheap construction, not designed for all floor types.

    Summary: WE purchased this Maytag Neptune 8700 thinking that maytag has a historical name and that the product was good. We were mistaken. We should have read the reviews on this before shopping. The item is nice looking, has all pretty bells and whistles,and ... read more

    Dec 2, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Benefits my dry cleaner
    Cons: Worst customer service ever

    Summary: On April 3rd 2006 I purchased a Maytag front load washer from Lowes. The first washer jumped around so much that Lowes replaced it. After several months, the machine would get into high speed spin and the front metal face plate would screech loud ... read more

    Pros: Gets laundry really clean, water efficient, stylish and stackable
    Cons: All digital technology which is more expensive to fix

    Summary: I purchased my Maytag Neptune front load washer recently and have fallen in love with it. Besides being water efficient, quiet and stylish, it can handle really heavy soil with great results. I chose my Maytag Neptune because it is a full size washer ... read more

  • DO NOT BUY!!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Liked it for the first 6 months before it died
    Cons: The Worst Customer Service Ever

    Summary: I cannot believe Maytag is still allowed to advertise their wonderful products and customer service. I bought this washer in February and six months later it dies just like the other reviews in mid cycle full of water. I got a service rep within 2 days ... read more

    Pros: Large capacity and less detergent required
    Cons: Flat surface allows laundry to slide off back; control knobs easy to bump

    Summary: My previous clothes washer was a Maytag that served us well for 25 years. After reading all the negative reviews on this particular machine I had reservations, but all those years of trust in a locally owned dealership said "go with it". My washer (and ... read more

  • RUN !! - away from anyone trying to sell you this Piece of Junk

    Pros: Looks good when it's turned off, and pushed back to the place it started from.
    Cons: Shakes violently, extremely noisy, takes way too long to finish a load.

    Summary: Do Not even consider buying a Maytag MAH8700A FL Washer ! My most accurate description: It's a pretty, Giant, Noisy, "paint can shaker", that takes FOREVER to complete a wash load, that is - if you want to put up with the clatter and shaking. ... read more

    Pros: Does a great job at washing clothes Very Stylish Computerized washing is amazing
    Cons: Spin cycle from HELL

    Summary: Talk about a great machine that that will end up in the scrap heap.The overall machine and cleaning ability is second to none but the spin cycle is a major wart on this product. I purchased both the model 8700 washer and matching dryer and had them ... read more

    Pros: Shiny, lots of buttons.
    Cons: Company fails to take responsibility for new, defective products after delivery completed.

    Summary: These appliances were purchased 01-22 from the Maytag store, then delivered and installed the following day. Pedestal bases were included. On delivery, the washer would shake excessively during spin, moving around the laundry room. The movement was so ... read more

    Pros: Cleans very well, quiet on spin, controls well placed, got discounted price.
    Cons: Wash-done alarm far too weak & needs manual unlock ability.

    Summary: We just got our Maytag Neptune 8700. We also got a 9700 electric dryer to go with it. We've had top loading washers for many years and thought all the hype about the new front loading washers was just fancy advertising. Yes, we could have problems ... read more
