Maytag, Amana, Jenn-Air, Kenmore Complaint - All The Same Product
LYONS, NEW YORK -- If you buy a Maytag, Kenmore, Amanna, Jenn-air or Whirlpool because you think one is better than the other you are only deceiving yourself. They are all the made by the very same company!! I and my wife argued about which dish washer, washer/dryer and refrigerator was the best so I did some research on all of them. It's not that hard to find out who owns what. I found that all are made by the same company!! boy was I fooled. Sears gives Maytag the specs. for what they want and the company builds it for them. The TV/print ads even fight each other over which is better. It's funny how they will even fight themselves for the market share. At any rate we went with Maytag because we felt that was a better product. boy where we WRONG!!!!! we also bought the extremely expensive Jenn-Air dish washer because she, my wife wanted the best. We had it less than 1 yr. when the timer control caught fire. after fighting with "customer service" (hahaha) for an hr. I was no closer to a fix than I was to getting a brand new mach. we paid $1200.00 (or close to it) for the mach. and the fix was $696.43 to fix it. I said no so we bought a GE and it's worked fine for 6 yrs. now. anyway, we got the run around for a month (with no dish washer other than me or my wife. mostly me) when we had enough and bought the new one. the part came in a box 6"x6" and weighed less than a lg. candy bar. plus installation mind you. (and the gov. got on bill gates for owning too much with Microsoft???) that was another $155.00. This co. is way too big for there own good, let alone ours.
Bottom line, no matter what you buy it's the same company making it these days. It's a shame that a company that once made a VERY good product has gone the way it has. My mom has an Maytag stove that has been in the house and used every day for the past 40 yrs. and is still going strong. What happened to that kind of product?
