My top load washing machine is the biggest piece of junk that ever bought. Do not buy this. It breaks all the time and I think the clothes are dirtier when they come out than when they go in. I will never buy another one.

I purchased a Maytag top load washer 3 of 22 and used it twice and the drum locked up. I called Maytag warranty. They said they wouldn't be able to come out and for like 7 days. I just bought this thing from Lowe's and it's already broke. So I called Lowe's and they agreed to swap out the washers. Got another new washer installed and it lasted for about less than 2 years and now my washer is broke down again. I did get an extended warranty because the damn thing is out of warranty now. They came out and looked at it and said the water pump and the board is all fried. Really!
I have friends who have Maytags that are like 10 to 12 years and they're still running now. I think Maytag is making these to make sure you throw these washing machines away after 2 years so you have to buy a new one. So disappointed in Maytag. I will not be buying anything that's made my Maytag again and will start looking at reviews on some of the others brands. Seems like nowadays every time I buy something new it breaks down in less than a year.

Baught a Maytag washer 4 years ago. Within the first year had a tech out to replace the drum gears..next the lid broke. They wanted $250 for a new lid..today Nov 17/23. Now the control board is out..and to get a tech to come out it will be $150 then the part for control board will be close to $300 so now at $400. We are now $300 away from just buying a new washer..it's sad we spend $700 on the washer new 4 years ago. Now it's junk..

I bought a Maytag washer, it's been pure piece of crap, it worked for a short time and then started not walking but running across the laundry room, even moved the dryer as well. Everything about it is screwed up. Spend money trying to fix it, forget it, it's all a waste of money, however 13 years ago I bought one. It was great but three years ago I bought this piece of crap. I'll never buy Maytag or Whirlpool again especially for nearly $700. Just to be screwed over because they put piece of crap parts in it now.

I have a Maytag Top load washing machine. Had it for 2.5 years. There are only 2 people living in my house so the usage is very light. The unit stopped working, had the repairman out who told us the main computer board failed and would need to be replaced. The price of the computer board with labor would cost more than to buy a new washing machine. This washing machine is a piece of junk. I will never buy Maytag again.

Customer service wouldn't help, second washer in 6 years. The plastic tub around the metal wash tub is cracked and leaks at high spin on the last of the spin. They are a piece of junk. Never again. No help from Maytag either, I'd give it no star but had to give it one.

I bought a Maytag washer model #MVWB766FW1, because of the big sign on the washer door, 10 year limited warranty, I also boughy an extended warranty for 5 years (not being told that warranty starts the day it was delivered, not after the factory warranty ran out), so 5 years 14 days after purchase, the lid by the hinges broke, to me it was poor design, anyone knows when you drill holes in plastic it causes stress failure, called Maytag because it said in their description parts covered if anything that makes the item not work, with the new washers the door locks when in use, doesn't work if door not fitting properly.
They told me the only thing covered is drive motor, wash basket, dryer drum, called the dealer to see about purchasing a new door, with parts, labor, service call it was over $400, called Maytag. Part was over $250 for door, took my money and bought a new washer that is not Maytag, or one of its other brands, did not know all the good brands that Maytag purchased which now has low ratings (had one brand that I had over 22 years that Maytag purchased which low grade according to the salesman), this is my opinion, but I will not purchase anything from Maytag again.

We purchased new Maytag Washer and Dryer units in 2020 and have had nothing but issues with the products. We have paid for service and repair countless times over the last 3 years. Both the washer and dryer's computer boards just went bad and need to be replace - the amount for parts and repair is $1,000. I contacted Maytag to see if they would assist in purchasing parts because this is unacceptable for units that are less than 3 years old. They would not assist in the cost. I would never purchase a Maytag or Whirlpool unit again. I would advise anyone I know to never buy a Whirlpool product. They are terrible.

Dryer timer bad and is going to cost $300. I will not be buying any more of Maytag or appliances from Lowe’s. Few more hundred buys a new one, it’s not a good deal for anyone to experience. Maytag usually has been a good product but not this time.

I have bought my mama a brand new one last year and I did not realize how bad they were so I got me one. Also I had bought two of these and they are both the same. Does not put hardly any water in the washer. You can't wash more than a couple of pieces at the time. The only way to wash in hot water is to completely turn your Fossett off of cold, and then it only let you have a tiny bit a hot water, and then it won't let you back in to put more water in the ranks in cycle at the lead locks. This is the sorriest washing machine I have ever seen in my life. They need to go back to making washers like they used to.
We don't need someone to tell us how to save money and save water. We don't want to save water. We want to use enough water to clean our clothes and we don't want the leads to lock so we can't add more water or see how they are washing. I tried to pause it and open it and then it would not let me do anything it kept trying to redo the whole cycle all over again, so it won't let me start over. I have to finish the cycle even though I don't want to if he was the stand and dishwashing machine it would barely cover your feet with water. I have to take buckets and fill it up to put enough water to wash my clothes. I'm very angry.
