When is a Coupon not a Coupon?
By -

I purchased a high efficiency Maytag washer and dryer in 2009. I received 30 coupons(3 year supply) of Tide HE 32oz. which expire 5/31/12. I have been unable to find a 32 oz bottle of Tide HE anywhere in Tulsa. I have looked everywhere. There is a Tide bottle that looks like it, but it is NOT HE. I don't believe it is being manufactured any more in that size. I have managed to use 14 of the coupons by getting the store to accept 2 coupons for one (64 oz.) bottle, or getting a 64 oz bottle and pay the difference, etc.

Walmart told me recently that they will only accept a coupon for the exact amount, so that is no longer an option at Walmart. My grocery store may still let me do that, but it is very awkward as I have to explain the problem every time I go. I have 16 coupons left.

The washer also has a setting "Clean washer with Affresh" Affresh is a tablet to put in the washer. I got 2 tablets with the machine, and guess what? I can't find them either! Didn't particularly like it as the tablet didn't disolve completely in the washer so I use a cup of bleach instead.

I would like to have some coupons I could actually use, or be reimbursed the cash value. Do I need to contact Maytag or Proctor & Gamble?

Disappointed In Maytag Product
By -

MARYLAND -- Washing machine 3 years new, and it quit working. The panel lights up with a error code 3E. We were told it was the front panel. The repair guy was supposed to order a new panel. After waiting 6 months and no satisfaction..we called another company. They have been out 2 times, the first guy side it was the panel..we told them to order it over 300.00 believe it or not, it was never ordered (they told us it was back ordered). After not being used for several months, we plugged the washer in and it worked, 1 time. We called the service guy out, this one from the same company said it was the motor. The computer he connected it to told him the code was for the motor. They wanted over 400.00 for just the motor and said he wasn't' sure that was it! What the Heck is wrong with people today...no training, no service and the products stink! It smells like mold and has just after we purchased the washer. We are really disqusted with the 24" Maytag washer.
I wouldn't buy another one!

Complaint

I was trying to register on line and all it lets you do is register heating and cooling. Have you checked your own web site. I tried over & over and it does not let you register a gas stove it does not recognize my serial number. Maybe I am not smart enough to do it. I will just mail it in.

Thank you for your time.

Poor service and warranty
By -

Bought a Sears Maytag micro about 5 months ago. It caught fire. the tech they sent out although has warranty on it said defective part. holder burnt ruined cavity words of tech. But at end although he stated faulty part he said not covered. Was looking to buy a washer and dryer hell with this kind of warranty will never buy Maytag anything. and would advise other s to be careful of the Maytag brand because it is for sure they don t back up their findings.

Wash machine junk after only 3 years!
By -

Maytag is junk people!! Save your money & buy a Whirlpool or Kenmore.
Purchased a new Maytag washer 3 years ago to the day, won't spin out, technician says it's the transmission,$380 to fix. Not worth it much!!
Really, not worth it after only 3 years??
Needless to say, its not the quality of the 2 previous Maytag machines,(both which lasted over 15 years).
Sadly, going to purchase anything BUT a Maytag this time. My repairman says go with a Whirlpool, at least they're cheaper so if it lasts only 3 years, I won't feel quite as ripped off!!
The name which used to be synonymous with quality, is now a HUGE liability from what I've been reading on the web, and should be out of business soon, sadly not soon enough from my experience. They just don't care!

Do not buy a Maytag
By -

My new Maytag washer lasted a total of ONE HOUR before breaking, and trapping a load of towels in its well. I called Home Depot, where I purchased the washer, and was told I must call Maytag. They in turn referred me to a service company that took 6 days to come to my house! Meanwhile, my wet towels remained trapped in the washer for a full 6 days because that there is no emergency opening button. Today the service guy told me it will take another 6 days for the part to come in. I have four children. Maytag refuses to give me a new washer. I spent 800 dollars on the washer and now I am spending 15 dollars or more a day on washing at the laundrymat! HELP!!!

Refregerator- Don't Buy Them
By -

I bought the refrigerator in 2003. By 2004 I had annual take apart time to unclog the drain for the defrost. The first time it cost $220 just to have the repairman do this and thankfully he showed me how to fix it. So at least once it year, it was take apart time. In 2009 it keep freezing up (every 2 weeks), so I called again. The automatic switch to defrost was broken, according to the repairman. He replace it. $250. 90 day guarantee. In April it froze up again. I manually took it apart and defrosted it, and called repair man. 2 weeks last it froze up again. Repair came and said the Maytag switch, which he just replaced is broken. He can replace for $150. The 90 day warranty is up. I had always liked Maytag, but no more. I expect to need to replace it very soon. Don\'t trust a Maytag.

All The Same Product
By -

LYONS, NEW YORK -- If you buy a Maytag, Kenmore, Amanna, Jenn-air or Whirlpool because you think one is better than the other you are only deceiving yourself. They are all the made by the very same company!! I and my wife argued about which dish washer, washer/dryer and refrigerator was the best so I did some research on all of them. It's not that hard to find out who owns what. I found that all are made by the same company!! boy was I fooled. Sears gives Maytag the specs. for what they want and the company builds it for them. The TV/print ads even fight each other over which is better. It's funny how they will even fight themselves for the market share. At any rate we went with Maytag because we felt that was a better product. boy where we WRONG!!!!! we also bought the extremely expensive Jenn-Air dish washer because she, my wife wanted the best. We had it less than 1 yr. when the timer control caught fire. after fighting with "customer service" (hahaha) for an hr. I was no closer to a fix than I was to getting a brand new mach. we paid $1200.00 (or close to it) for the mach. and the fix was $696.43 to fix it. I said no so we bought a GE and it's worked fine for 6 yrs. now. anyway, we got the run around for a month (with no dish washer other than me or my wife. mostly me) when we had enough and bought the new one. the part came in a box 6"x6" and weighed less than a LG. candy bar. plus installation mind you. (and the gov. got on bill gates for owning too much with Microsoft???) that was another $155.00. This co. is way too big for their own good, let alone ours.

Bottom line, no matter what you buy it's the same company making it these days. It's a shame that a company that once made a VERY good product has gone the way it has. My mom has an Maytag stove that has been in the house and used every day for the past 40 yrs. and is still going strong. What happened to that kind of product?

Maytag has the worst appliances
By -

I purchased a house in 2006 and renovated it about a year later in 2007 to 2008. I purchased Maytag appliances (Dishwaher, mircowave, washer, dryer and a big A/C wall unit) during my renovation because you always see in the Maytag commercials how the repair guy sits around because they're so good. Well that's a bunch of crap! The first time using my A/C unit the Circuit interupter on the cord kept tripping. To make a long story short, It took Maytag over a year to fix it. I had to keep calling the repair guy over and over for a year to get him out there. He came several different times over the course of a year and never had the right replacement plug. I went two hot summers without an A/C thanks to Maytags crappy service and units. Next is my dryer. The drum belt broke less than a year after buying it. I had to spend money on a new one and fix it myself because after the aggrevation with the A/C unit, the repair guy was never coming back in my house. Now to my Microwave. Every time I use the stupid thing, the front grill vibrates like crazy and annoys the hell out of you. Lastly, is my diswaher. I have the Maytag Quiet Series 300 which is louder than a freight train. It was quiet for about 4 months and then started getting louder and louder. It's horrible!!!! Plus I had to replace the cheaply made wheel rollers on the upper rack several times. The only one of my five Maytag appliances I haven't had a problem with was my washing machine. Oh boy, just jinxed myself. They are the worst crap built and I'll never buy another one again, ever. All this crap is made overseas from cheap Chinese platic with very poor quality. Bring back good old American made stuff. God Bless America!

Bad Refrigerator
By -

I purchased a Maytag refrigerator through the Home Depot, within three days I realized it wasn't working properly. I came home from work one day and found water all over my kitchen floor. I called the 800 number that was given on the receipt for any problems with products. Well they told me they could not replace it until their technician inspected the Frig and determined if it was repairable or needed to be replaced and they did not have an appointment available until one week later. I had to wait 7 days before someone came out. Within the next three days I called again because the frig had stopped working all together, wasn't cooling at all, to find they were closed, they were not available on weekends. So I went directly to the Home Depot. Home Depot Rep. told me there was nothing they could do for me to wait for my appointment date. Well On my appointment date the technicians (2) came out and inspected the frig. and told me they could not fix it that it was a manufacturer defect and I should get a replacement. Well they made their phone call and reported their finding. Well Maytag wasn't satisfied with that they wanted me to stay home another day from work so they could send someone else to look at it. I said no way am I staying home another day from work. They were persistent and would not give. I told them I wanted the refrig out of my house it wasn't working and I wanted to return it and get my money refunded. Well of course they weren't going to do that either they told me I had to let someone come to the house again. I said I thought this was the purpose of the technician that were in my house to make the inspection and determine the outcome. They said Oh no those guys are just delivery men they are not qualified to make that decision I asked why are they in my house. I was told the Home Depot sent them. I said I was told a service Tech was being sent to my house that is why I told the day off from work. I don't need delivery men. Well the point is they would not take the refrig back. they down and out refused and they told me they had no record of me calling within the 48 hrs their policy stated for replacement of appliances. Which is a lie I called them within 3 days of the delivery. Their policy did not state 48 hrs I read the return policy. It states 30 days. Anyway after arguing with them I went to the Home Depot. They said If I returned it, it would be at my own expense for me to bring it in myself. Eventually Home Depot took it back and refunded my money. But I will never purchase a Maytag product again. I made sure all my friends and relatives are aware of how Maytag treats their customers.
