  • Worst Machine I ever Had

    Dec 17, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks good
    Cons: Senser takes too long; spins too hard and too fast, wrinkling clothes.

    Summary: My Kenmore basic washing machine that I'd had for 12 years suddenly died and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to buy one of the new "high efficiency" machines to save time and water....WRONG.  After going to many stores, checking out front ... read more

  • Thankfully Home Depot Allowed Me To Return It

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Attractive to look at.  That's it!
    Cons: Not enough water too much electricity too slow per load extra spins required lid locks

    Summary: I found this on sale for $358 and purchased it against my better judgment having already read poor reviews. I tried to keep in mind what some said about reading the manual and using it exactly as stated. I kept it for 4 days, ran only 3 loads of clothes ... read more

  • Trouble with my Maytag

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: The price was cheap
    Cons: Uses too little water so leaves soap scum and fluff on clothes .

    Summary:  The machine has not worked well from the beginning. I played ball and went through all the hoops thrust my way from the Whirlpool Canada Customer Experience Call Centre (1-800-807-6777). Over several phone calls I was told I did not use the correct ... read more

  • Over-engineered; not effective in cleaning

    Mar 6, 2012 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Can't think of any.
    Cons: Uses too little water to clean well; clothes get worn out faster from abrasion.

    Summary: To conserve water, this machine supposedly "senses" how much water to allow, but it's never enough to even cover the load. The agitation is vigorous, but with too little water, the clothes just get beat up and abraded--wearing them out ... read more

    Cons: Broke down, clothes not clean.

    Summary: Do not purchase. I paid $649.00 18 months later control board go's out. $169.00 for new part (very thankful my husband is handy) installed by my husband. Clothes do not come out very clean and it takes 45 minutes to complete one load. I am a very unhappy ... read more

    Cons: Multiple breakdowns.

    Even when it's working it doesn't clean clothes very well.  

    Summary: I bought this washing machine in February 2011. It had 2 breakdowns during the warranty period which were repaired by Maytag. The first time it was the transmission. The second time it was the main control board.  It had one ... read more

    Clohs not wet
    Takes too long for cycle

    Summary: This is the worst washer I have owned in over 50 years?I hoped I would have better luck than others who reviewed this washer because it  was a maytag.  It takes forever to wash a load, clothes do not even get wet all the way through, are ... read more

    Pros: Nice looking
    Cons: Bleach spots after rinsing dispenser, hate the Downy ball softner

    Summary: Stinks!! One of the holes in the bottom of the drum had a sharp edge, putting little round holes in the clothes!! I sent Maytag a couple of my daughters brand new socks with the holes in them, and got no response. My husband filed it down when we ... read more

    Pros: Very efficient use of water, uses a scant amount of detergent, gets clothes clean
    Cons: cycles take a little longer, machine has unusual noises in the cycles

    Summary: I just got this machine so my opinion may change, but it has done a great job. Clothes are very clean, spun very dry, the controls are easy to use, and if you read the directions and understand this isn't like the old machines, it works beautifully. It ... read more

    Pros: It was cheap at Home Depot. 
    Cons: Does not get clothes clean.

    Summary: I have never been unhappier with an appliance. It does not get clothes clean and now, after only 15 months, it won't spin. I have been dying to sell it but now that it broke down I can just throw it away I guess. I'll never buy another Maytag ... read more

    Pros: Uses less water which is good for the environment.
    Cons: Clothes aren't getting clean.

    Summary: Disatisfied with the technology. The low water prevents clothes from tumbling.If a garment is placed into the tub with side "A" down, side "B" never gets flipped over to be exposed to the agitation action of the tub bottom. The bottom rotates against ... read more
