Maytag Complaint - Maytag Don't BUY
In July of 2006 we purchased an Ice2O French Door Fridge, Over the range Microwave mmv4205bab and dishwasherMDB7601AWD. These were all brand new products. We also purchased a scratch and dent double oven smooth top range. Almost a year to the date of purchase the ice/water dispenser went haywire and needed a new circuit board. Covered by warranty but still a pain. Next the Microwave Magnetron tube blew 2 yrs to the date of purchase, then it happened again 2 yrs later. Tonight that tube blew again! We have had this microwave for 6 yrs. Piece of junk. Will not be fixing it again. Sledgehammer in its future. As for the dishwasher 2yrs after purchase the mother board is going due to the design flaw of the steam crossing over it. We can no longer select a function. It's a gamble. We press start, it still cleans. To replace the board it was going to be $250.00 just for the part. I said no way I'll buy different dishwasher next time. The dishwasher also fell into the gigantic fire hazard recall of needing to replace the heating element. That's how I found out about the mother board issue. I called the store I purchased these from and mentioned that strangely enough the stove/oven hadn't been a problem. They laughed and explained that they are double and triple checked for problems before they are put on the sales floor. They are fixed before they are displayed. I's funny that new appliances need to be repaired.
