I purchased a Maytag Front Loader washer Series 3000 over one year ago and now the bearings need replacement. I called a service guy and he quoted the repair to be $1,100 almost $400 dollars more of what I paid for the washer. Do not buy Maytag, bad quality and the company doesn't back up their products. I read the reviews online and the washer had excellent reviews. But let me tell you, the washer is not worth $200.
