Maytag Corporation Complaint - Waste Of Money
CORAL SPRINGS, FLORIDA -- Purchased in May 2005. By December 2008 It is ready for the dumpster. It started making a lot of noise, the rinse cycle would not work, so the tech came. He replaced the belt and gasket the belt is so hard to get to, he HAS NO CHOICE but to replace the gasket at the same time. It had the same problem within a day, rinse cycle still not working. So he replaced the timer. None of this was covered under the warranty(surprise surprise).
A month later I smelled smoke. There was water all over the floor, now I find out from the tech there is a leak in the top seal, large and very serious. Of course, not covered under the warranty, tech said It will take around $160 in parts and 3 hours of labor, major job. Not worth it so his advice? Dump the piece of **it and consider a whirlpool, between $300 and $400 easy to fix, better value for money.
I cannot believe a washing machine in moderate use only lasted for 3 1/2 yrs. Customer Service at Maytag, finally offered us a 15% cash back if we buy a Maytag or Whirlpool machine.
The reason I bought this machine was because it was recommended to me by Consumer Reviews. Guess I won't trust their opinion again!
