Maytag Corporation Informative - Maytag Dishwasher Recall -part finally arrived-do you want it?
CHERRY HILL, NEW JERSEY -- The recent Maytag dishwasher recall has been completely mishandled. The part was ordered by on March 22nd. I was told it would take about a week to arrive. Long story short, I called Maytag after a week and was told there was no record of the order. Re-ordered the part. Still didn't come. Reordered part again (third time) and it still didn't come.
Finally I spoke with someone in the recall dept. who told me that they just don't have enough of these parts to ship. There are over 2 million of these dishwashers with a serious problem---this dishwasher could burn down your house if the part isn't replaced! They are making a few hundred of these parts per week. At that rate he had no idea of where my order was in the queue and no estimate of when it would arrive! At least he was honest!
After 3 weeks of waiting, we decided to purchase a new GE dishwasher. Of course, the part arrived about a week after we installed the new dishwasher.
I'm now selling the part on eBay---please check it out under Maytag Dishwasher recall parts. Mine's the one with no picture--it's still in the box. I promise to ship it to you promptly--unlike Maytag. It's cheaper than buying a new dishwasher. If your part ever arrives you can sell it and recoup your money, too.
