Failure of triple lip seal and milkstool bearing
Posted by on
KATY, TEXAS -- I bought a new maytag washer from Home Depot in December 2003. Since that time the washer has failed four times. It has been the same thing each time, the triple lip seal and the milkstool bearing. In the spin cycle it makes a terrible noise. The sad part of this mess is the repair persons told us this was common in this washer. I fine this unacceptable. Luckily I have bought the extended warranty. No more Maytag anything fo me. With the warranty and cost of the washer I will probably spend enough to have bought two washers. Thanks Maytag

That surely is odd. We haven't seen a milkstool bearing failure complaint since I joined a few months ago. Interesting.

Sweep the coils!

Debtor - I don't think there are any coils in a washer. I don't have the parrot today so I could be wrong.
DebtorBasher on 06/20/2006:
Well there ya go! That's the problem! The darned assembly line forgot to install the coils!!!!!!!!

Doesn't the extended warranty not take effect until the original manufactures warranty ends? The mans warranty is only a year, am I correct??

Right crazy. Poster's real lucky they bought that warranty extension. Hopefully, the machine's problems will stabilize once the extension runs out.

Sounds like it's a lemon slim, I don't think it'll fix itself, warranty or no.
Slimjim on 06/22/2006:

It's not fixing itself, techs are replacing the parts. If the part(s) are faulty in widespread machines, they may identify a flaw and correct it. Way to lift the poster's spirits pirate. Good thing you're around to make people's day.

Slim, take off your rose-colored glasses. Techs may be able to replace parts, but machines will NOT repair themselves. Quit building up false hopes about things you know very little about. (tr)
Slimjim on 06/22/2006:
Pirate, I really don't know what to say because you clearly can't read well. Re-read with an adult's help what I said, then tell us how your trolling response makes any relative sense.

Slim, I'm sure you're meds have worn off by now - but let me put it in plain English..........A machine can't fix itself or "stabilize" like it's some patient on an operating table. How many times were you dropped on your head as a child?
Slimjim on 06/23/2006:
Sigh..Pay attention college boy. THE_MACHINE_IS NOT_FIXING_ITSELF! The service technicians are fixing it. With me so far? Good, now stay focused. If a part is proven faulty in reliability, THE_FACTORY WILL_REDESIGN_THE_PART. Any clue yet where this is going? You keep claiming you were in appliances but at what level is beyond me. This is simple common sense stuff a cake baker could keep up with.

You must be eating dreamsicles! Changing your story now, eh gramps? We know what level you were in appliances...........lugging them!
Slimjim on 06/23/2006:
Where does the story change? I said almost verbatim the same thing. Maybe you should let the parrot do the posting so your team won't look so imbecilic. You could change the name to parrotwithidiot.
DebtorBasher on 06/23/2006:
Slim...I take offense in the Cake Baker comment...I bake, I know how the Cavemen felt in the commercials.

Backpedal all you want, Gramps. You said the machine would "stabilize" itself! You're the IDIOT who thinks inanimate objects can self-repair. Why don't you change your name to VILLAGE IDIOT!?
Slimjim on 06/23/2006:
Where did I use the word itself?
Slimjim on 06/23/2006:
Don't take offense DB. Cake baker, candlestick maker, Winn Dixie mop-swinger- anyone pretty much except illiterate trolls.

"problems will stabilize" that's about as bright as SWEEP THE COILS!
murf on 06/25/2006:
Could it be, that all we have to do, is stabalize the coils ?!?
DebtorBasher on 06/26/2006:
Maybe we need to stabalize the person sweeping the coils!
DebtorBasher on 06/26/2006:
Some machines has coils that sweep themself...LOL.
