Maytag Bravos Washer and Dryers Very Poor Machines
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
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.

Maytag Rebate - Don't Count on It
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
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.

Repaired 3 Times in the Last Year, Wait Over 2 Weeks for Repairs
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
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.

A couple of things your review really says:

1. Always buy the basic appliances with the least amount of "bells and whistles" you can. Then when they break down and you cannot fix them yourself or cheaply, throw away and buy a new one.

2. Save your money and do not buy the extended warranties. They are usually never worth it.

Nothing is built to last anymore. Called the throw-a-way society.

Maytag Freezer Piece of Junk!
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
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 Maytage 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.

Junk product
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
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.

Find a washer that does NOT use electronic controls. You will find it to be far more reliable and less expensive to repair.

And don't get a Maytag when you do. Their quality has gone downhill in the last few years. Can't recall the last time I saw one of their lonely repairman commercials. Maybe because they know they'd be sued for false advertisement as often as the machines break down nowadays. I had a Maytag dryer about 10 years ago. Bought it brand new based on the quality the name used to mean. Drum tore up twice in 5 years and needed replaced as it was unusable otherwise. Replaced it the first time as it was still under warranty. Next time just junked it as I didn't want to deal with this every two to two and a half years. It was my first Maytag appliance and will be my last.

Claim My Rebate Was Not Applicable
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
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.

This is a bit confusing, where did you buy these units and who told you the rebates would not be honored?

Not the old Maytag
Posted by on
Bought a freezer from Home Depot, have had four service calls, all for the same problem-have thus far have spent more on repairs than the freezer cost-repairman says it is faulty design and poor manufacturing. Traded old 40 year freezer that never had a problem but was manual defrost for this piece of Maytag junk. Maytag says tough luck, problem not covered by warranty, but do consider Maytag when I buy a new freezer.

Maytag/Whirlpool have been getting a lot of quality control problems reported lately. It seems like the quality of many formerly respected brands has gone way downhill.

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.

Is this the page you're using?

"Range" is included in the drop down menu. Make sure you are putting the numbers in correctly.

Poor service and warranty
Posted by on
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!
Posted by on
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!

If you've been paying attention to reviews online then you must know that Whirlpool (which now owns Maytag), is just as bad. I would avoid both brands. I've had my best luck with Kenmore appliances but hesitate to recommend them because it could actually just be a matter of luck.

Gosh, I wouldn't want something that lasted 3 years - that sounds like an act of desperation.

I have an *RCA* washer and dryer. Go figure. 16 years of reliable service. I wonder who really made them.

appliances and electronics aren't what they used to be. Just as expensive, but JUNK. Any more, when you buy a high priced item, you just buy it and pray it lasts.
