Maytag Bravo Washing Machine Complaint - The Maytag Bravo Series Sucks
I finally went for it and bought an expensive Maytag washer and dryer. It was the new 2009 Bravo set. Very nice looking set.
First of all, I had no idea what I was getting myself into with this bells and whistles on steroid technology. The washer takes virtually all choices away from the user, and determines what variables will be allowed based upon their pre-set combination. I can live with most of these pre-determined selections, but sometimes it's frustrating.
The worst thing about the washer is that it becomes unbalanced A LOT!!! Two king sheets will unbalance it. Many times it becomes unbalanced for Goodness-knows-why.
I had the Maytag Repairman come and look at the washer to try and determine if there was something wrong, but he said, "no, these machines just have a tendency to become unbalanced easily."
I can't imagine this machine lasting very long. The movements it goes through to wash a load is extreme. I'm sure that parts will wear out much faster than the older models. Especially with what it goes through to "right" itself when it becomes imbalanced.
The repairman told me I should have bought a front loader. Great. That made me feel really good!
I don't hate this machine, but if I had known what it was really like, I would never have bought it!
