  • Maytag Neptune Front Loading Washer..has found a new home with me!

    Jul 22, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A wonderful well oiled machine!
    Cons: none!

    Summary: Ok, so you think that there are two types of washing machines right? The top load and the front load. Well in my opinion these are not the two types. The two types of washing machines are the one that does work and the one that does not work! This ... read more

    Pros: Everything! Still looks new, no rust, mold, bad seals.. Everything was great!
    Cons: Would have been easier to use if we got the pedestals to put under it.

    Summary: We bought this pair from Sears approx 10 years ago.They were the model where the top/back with the soft buttons looked like a "wave". We had one small problem with the drum going off center right after we bought it, but my husband fixed it easily. Since ... read more

    Pros: Uses less water, has not needed repair in 5 years
    Cons: Mold grows easily inside it, smelly, does not clean well

    Summary: I bought the Maytag Neptune front-loading washer 5 years ago when I moved to a new home and wanted a machine that used less water than my old top loader.  This machine does use a lot less water and has not needed mechanical repair in that time, but ... read more

  • Don't waste your hard earned cash with this company

    Jan 29, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It will wash your clothes
    Cons: Horrible Customer Service, Defective electrical parts will cost hundreds more to repair, Defective moisture seals...

    Summary: Let me start with this: I have received one correspondence from Maytag a couple of years ago saying that if the seal around the front was moldy, they would repair it. Thankfully, I was one of the very few who didn't have this problem. I tossed the letter ... read more

    Pros: Works as it should, quiet and dependable
    Cons: In 4 years of use, I still have'nt found any

    Summary: I purchased this washer four years ago, and it's never had a problem or repair in that time. The only dissappointment I have had is that the price has came down since then, meaning I paid almost $300 more than it costs now. This is my first ... read more

    Aug 5, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Large loads; Auto dispensing of detergent, bleach, etc; Quiet.
    Cons: High failure rate; Expensive repair; General lack of care for customer

    Summary: If you've researched this machine at all, you will know that it has major defects with the controller cards - both the motor controller and the master controller cards. However, these machines are deeply discounted and some have coupons for years worth ... read more

    Jun 20, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: A great example of what a cleaning machine should NOT be!
    Cons: Black mold, black mold, black mold, and black mold.

    Summary: I would HIGHLY advise against purchasing the Maytag Neptune washer! My mom had an old top-loading Maytag for 20 plus years, and then bought a new one that she still uses today. When I bought my first home four years ago, I never shopped around or ... read more

    Jun 13, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Clothes come out dry. Quiet running. Less water used.
    Cons: OK: small pain to make sure the door is opened right after every load.

    Summary: I was very very anxious about picking this wash machine due to the class action lawsuit. I looked at a number of models and asked a lot of questions. With the class action law suit as my guide I grilled a number of sales people at a 3 different stores, ... read more

    May 22, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Much less wear on clothes! Jeans... last MUCH longer! Less fading!
    Cons: Low washing.../dependability rating. Follow my cleaning suggestions!

    Summary: The major con I HAD with the Neptune, was that it didn't get the clothes as clean as my old Kenmore with agitator! I finally figured out what the problem was- I took a load of large bathroom rugs to the local laundromat, that also had Maytag front ... read more

  • MAYTAG RIP-OFF, TERRIBLE MACHINE/SERVICE

    May 20, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: None.
    Cons: Expensive. Has ruined our clothes repeatedly. Extremely high maintenance. Unbelievably bad service.

    Summary: My wife and I bought a Maytag Neptune washer and dryer because we felt it was a quality product and would be backed by excellent service. WRONG on both counts. Our machine has never worked correctly, and it has ruined hundreds of dollars worth of our ... read more

  • Neptune Isnt a Total Disaster

    Feb 19, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent energy efficient machine
    Cons: Poor reliability compared to past models, but salvagable Heavy duty cleaning required

    Summary: Reading some reviews you would think there is no hope whatsoever for these washers with the mold problems anyway. I can understand the early model users with thier electrical problems being so upset, but even that is reasonably cheap to repair yourself ... read more

  • Gasket ripped: Maytag lost lawsuit -- appeal in progress

    Feb 19, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Efficient front loader, flexible controls, high speed spin, can open door during cycle
    Cons: Ripped gasket, mold problems, motor problems, circuit board problems

    Summary: I've been very happy with this washing machine for the last three months, its quiet, efficient and has lots of high tech functions: the extra delicate handwash setting + the usuals. It has the efficiency of a side loader, but the convenience of a top ... read more

  • SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT A WHIRLPOOL INSTEAD --

    Jan 31, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very large tilted tub, easy-to-use controls.
    Cons: Too many problems - doesn't live up to it's name. 6/20/07 - still awful.

    Summary: UPDATE: I still have this machine, and it is worse now than ever. It has become very noisy and leaves a smell in the clothes if you don't run bleach-water through it at least once a week, and you have to be sure to take the clothes out as soon as it is ... read more

  • I'd forgotten about the dramatic difference between top and front loaders

    Aug 5, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, cheap to run, water efficient and very clean clothes!
    Cons: Buzzer quiet. Machine is wide (pay attention to the space/room the washer will be going).

    Summary: I'm accustomed to using front loaders (raised in the UK where they are standard) but I was very cautious of buying a front loader in the US due to their relative newness on the market. Plus, I don't know anyone with a front loader so I was left in the ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Water efficiency, ultra quiet, looks great, well lit interior, cleaning ability
    Cons: Absolutely NONE!

    Summary: OK, despite negative reviews of the Maytag Neptunes, I decided to take the plunge. I initially looked at the Whirlpool Duets, but they were too deep to fit in my laundry "closet". The Neptune was a perfect fit. Additionally, since my piping is ... read more

    Pros: I thought I was buying the best washer.
    Cons: Mold...Mold....Mold....no return accepted. Expensive!

    Summary: You can smell the mold as soon as you walk into the laundry room. Maytag repairmen have replaced the rubber gasket several times. The machine continues to get mold all around the rubber gasket. I clean it with anti mold cleaners but it still grows. I ... read more
