Maytag Corporation Informative - Atlantis Piece Of $#@! Washing Machine
My husband purchased a brand new washing machine for me. We shopped around and purchased the Atlantis, the middle of the road in pricing, but we thought Maytag was a name we could trust since our parents swore by them, also the Maytag Repairman Commercial that everyone refers to, how bored he is.
Well, everything went well for the first 2 years and then all of a sudden, the machine stopped spinning. It was the belt and the transmission. A sixty nine dollar service call and then a week and a half without a machine, and then $140 for Labor to remove the transmission and then put the new one in along with the belt which took him no longer than 30 minutes total. With tax, that was $220.00. Luckily the transmission was covered under warranty. The repair has lasted; however, another problem occurred two months later. Some pump went. So another $69 for a service call. This time, it was going to be in the area of $200 for the part because it wasn't under warranty and $50 for the labor.
Well, I paid the service call fee and told him to have a nice day. I went to the appliance store and ordered the part myself. My husband put it on. The part was $72 with tax. It took my husband ten minutes to put it on. These people are CROOKS!!! And now my machine is making a squealing noise on the spin cycle. I'm afraid to do laundry. I wished someone would get a class action suit against these idiots!!! I was told by a maytag salesman that maytag was cheapened because another company purchased them. How true this is, I haven't a clue.
In the meantime, I see hundreds of people with similiar complaints as mine on this garbage machine we all bought and have sunk a ton of money into and / or have been inconvenienced by in one way or another. I really liked my Amana :) Wished I would have stuck with that brand!
