CLEARWATER, FLORIDA -- Purchased Maytag bravos 5 years ago. Washer does a very poor job of cleaning and ties clothes in knots, and have problems with bleach leaching into the next load. Though the dryer works OK, sometimes even with the sensors, it doesn't dry jeans well if mixed with other clothes and the unit has rust on the outside already. My last washer and dryer never had rust and I had them 18 years.
EL PASO, TEXAS -- Please stay away from Maytag. They will cheat you out of a rebate of all means necessary. First, they claimed that I didn't submit the receipt even though I included the email with the order number and the delivery receipt. Second, I faxed the email with the order number again and they claimed that they didn't receive it and denied the rebate. Once again, beware of this company's tactics involving rebates.
COLUMBIA HEIGHTS, MINNESOTA -- Purchased the extended warranty and each time we needed service it took over 2 weeks to get the unit serviced. How can a person keep food from spoiling. Change the service contract personnel and get someone who can get an appointment in a day or two. I would never buy another Maytag appliance again. Would like a refund on that piece of junk, my last refrigerator last over 20 years, this one 3 years with and still not working properly.
MADISON, WISCONSIN -- Exactly one week after the one year warranty ran out my Freezer quit working. Everything is running but it will not cool and I lost a freezer full of food. I called Maytag and no surprise they were unhelpful and would do nothing except try and sell me a one year extended warranty for $257.00!!! I will never buy another Maytag appliance ever again!! The quality is shabby and they don't seem to care. I also wonder about the rumor of Home Depot selling Maytag seconds??? I bought it at Home Depot.
Bought a Maytag EPIC Z front loader in June 2010; used 9 months and put in storage until this week. Went to run it and bearing bad and control panel electronics bad and won't allow a wash cycle to run. No error codes, just goes 8 minutes and panel goes blank. Repairman estimates 600 in parts and about 200 in labor to fix. Not taking a chance with this company or product and junking for a new unit.
FLORIDA -- I purchased a Maytag washer and dryer because of a warranty they had on their website only to find out that even though I had matching numbers that they offered rebates they claim I bought them where the rebate wasn't applicable. What a scam - stay away from MAYTAG.
I bought a Maytag Microwave at the end of 2008. It is almost brand new. We barely use the electrical range microwave. Last Friday when we wanted to use the microwave to warm water, it does not work. Then and there we called the Maytag technician. The technician told me that Magnetron is very bad. He himself told me Maytag brand Microwave is the worst one in the USA. I became surprised. Maytag should recall this model. I bought it from Home Depot. PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BUY Maytag Brand anymore. Their warranty is the worst. I am planning to write to the newspaper.
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 dissolve 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 Procter & Gamble?
MARYLAND -- Washing machine 3 years new, and it quit working. The panel lights up with an 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 disgusted with the 24" Maytag washer. I wouldn't buy another one!
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!
