Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Poor quality - don't trust consumer reports

Cll2 11/4/2019

Nothing but problems 2 years after having it. Luckily my husband is handy. Babied the washer for 6 more years. It died last night. Same error codes as many. Walked into a laundry room smelling of smoke and burnt motor. Full of water and hard to unlock my clothes. Still had mold marks on ring even with leaving my door open and detergent drawer open. With I had my old one back.

Maytag does not live up to it's commercials

Lara P 5/1/2019

Our Maytag Maxima XL Steam MCT is only about 4 years old. The reason we purchased this washer was because it was rated #1 by Consumer Reports. We were not aware at that time that Whirlpool owed Maytag. We had never had a real problem with Whirlpool washers. In the past 6 months, we have had to have the tech from our extended service plan come out 3 times. It is the same problem over and over that everyone states. It gives the codes E01 & F05. The tech replaces the computer panel and the process starts all over again after a short period of time - not finishing a cycle, shutting down, locking up - not allowing us to unlock the door. The washer's plug is plugged in, the fuse has been checked and when the tech comes out, it is always the computer panel. We even had an electrician come out to make sure there was nothing wrong with the outlet and fuse box. It is on a stand alone outlet for a washing machine. We have lived in the same place for 40 years and never had a problem with any washers before. We had always bought Whirlpool with no real issues. I still have my 1989 Whirlpool Heavy Duty Super Capacity Dryer and we have no problems with it. Since we have an extended service plan - I asked if they would just pay for a new washer since they have already been out 3 times for the same issue, and based on reviews this was a recurring problem that Maytag has with this washer. They said no, it was their policy to keep replacing the computer panel. Well, I cannot keep going thru this. I am disabled and have paralysis spells (it can occur for days at a time) and when I am having a good day I need to be able to do laundry. My husband works 2 jobs. I will never recommend Maytag again. So much for the repair man sitting around doing nothing. It seems to me that they had better hire A lot more repair people! And by the way, we take care of our appliances. The repair man stated it looks like new. Even after he checked the drain and filter - Nothing was there. We don't have smells or mold in our washer. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

very disappointing

Zeela 4/5/2019

I purchased this washer in Feb 2012 when we bought our house and it worked good for a while. We recently started seeing some issues when the machine's motor won't start sand give an error message of F01 E01 as we try to start a load. The technician who we called for service informed us that there is an issue with the control board and it needs to be replaced. The part is not made by Maytag anymore although the machine is still under Maytag 10 year warranty. The cost of labor is separate from the part.I am totally lost at what to do next. We have the matching dryer and two pedestals to go with that machine and will have to buy the whole set if I replace this machine which could cost a lot. I have noticed that many people have the same problem with this machine and would like to know what Maytag can do to stand by their product.

Failure of Control Boards

SusieRae3 3/31/2019

Unfortunately I am part of the group that has Error Code E01 F06. Spent $98 on repair man whom had to order a $300 part plus additional installation $50 & lag time to order part. He then let me know I needed an additional control board at $278. At $450 into it currently and having to spend an additional $278 plus the installation cost of that part I am highly disappointed. I trouble shot the situation with Maytag first. I don't have an extended warranty yet I am fully within the ten years so MAYTAG ... why is this a customer issue and not a Maytag recall like the automobile companies offer? At the very least offer your clientele something or we are obligated to ourselves to try another Brand that upholds it's reputation. This machine serviced me well for almost 8 years to the day and now I can't recommend it any longer because it didn't live out at least it's ten year life expectancy. I'm also highly disappointed that my MHW6000XW1 Maytag will join our landfill!

It was nice while it lasted. wa wah waaaahh

maytag_owner 3/25/2019

We owned it based on Consumer Reports. It did great for ~4 years. Then we got error code E01 F06. The internet is sometimes wrong (don't ya know?). My wife thought that it was the coin trap. Turns out, you have to disassemble the whole darn thing to reach the coin trap. Our neighbor had to help remove the drier from the top. He owns an LG and said they have a door for the coin trap (genius!). The internet answers that I found said that we should check and probably replace the control board. Well.... at $200 for materials and what we went through to reach the coin trap, I'm guessing we'll pay close to the cost of the washer to have that thing replaced. I remember the old ad campaigns that showed a lonely Maytag repairman. Now I envision a billionaire laughin' it up.

Constantly resetting

Cakeybakes 3/19/2019

First of all, we have owned nothing but Maytag washers (4 in 30 years). We bought this washer 3 years ago. While it does lower our water bill significantly, we receive error codes every couple of weeks and have to unplug it and reset it, sometimes with every load for a week at a time. This has been happening for the last 6 months. The repairman informed us this is common with this model. Unfortunately, this type of problem doesn't warrant replacement under our warranty. I love the features but I'm disappointed with the lack of quality. I doubt we will purchase another Maytag if this is what they are producing now.

They sure don't build them like they used to

Dannyla 3/15/2019

This machine was great... while it lasted. It suddenly gave us a problem where the door wouldn't open anymore. Our clothes was stuck until we unplugged and plugged it back in. Someone from Maytag came out to take a look- said it would cost $800 to repair. Not sure I'd be willing to buy another Maytag machine in the future. Also- from the very beginning this had an issue that drove me crazy. The design of the power button and start button. If you didn't press them in perfectly straight, they would get stuck- very VERY annoying.

Many repairs

Benjj 2/25/2019

Bought from Costco. It has needed many expensive repairs. It smells sour, even though we keep it open when not in use, remove clothing immediately after washing, and we clean with Affresh every few weeks.

Amazing machine, just not long lived

Allen42 2/20/2019

Just E01 F06 error message on our Maytag Maxima MHW6000XW2 after 5 years and 3 months of great service. The overall machine was doing great and was a great looking machine to boot, but it was an expensive unit to have a $600 (estimated) repair after a little after 5 years of service. For the price of repair, I have purchased something else, that while is not as great overall, is brand new and has a warranty.

Common Error Message

liz134 2/4/2019

Never had a problem with this machine until now. I have had this machine for 7 years and now have an error message indicating the control board and interface board may need to be replaced. WP certified repair guys came out 3 times. First that thought it was the lock, then the main control board and now possibly both the main and interface boards. Parts are about $200-$300 each plus labor. Repair guys said might be worth just buying a new machine. :( I'm afraid to fix it because who know what else might go wrong. I would have liked to get at least 10 years out of this machine considering how much I paid!!

Disappointing Product Longevity

andreaIN 2/4/2019

I purchased this washer four years ago almost to the date and computer board has gone out. Washer worked great until this time but is clearly not made for the long haul. Disappointed with customer service and the need to purchase a long term warranty because quality is clearly not up to par. I will no longer purchase anymore Maytag appliances after this experience. Maytag does not stand behind their products or produce the quality that they market.

No longer buying a Maytag appliance.

mausdesign 11/18/2018

Got the E01 F06 error message on our Maytag Maxima MHW6000XW2 after having to deal with a leaky ripped bellows for 8 months. Not about to pay $500-$700 on repairs. Just ordered an LG - no more Maytag anything for us.

JBM-PA 11/15/2018

Bought in September 2011 and the usual problem of board issues according to this error like others. How could you be selling this product with so many failures. Replacement parts are over $300 or more. Disgraceful!

Don't expect to get more than 6 years out of this

jan66 11/5/2018

My washer died today. It gave a F06 E02 code and the repairman was unable to come up with a good answer why it was doing this. I used this machine a lot, but took good care of it: wiped the rubber seal down after every wash, left the door open when not in use, ran the Afresh cleaning cycle once a month yet still had to occasionally pull back the rubber seal and wipe with a rag dipped in Clorox. The soap dispenser area was also prone to mold. I felt like my clothes were cleaner than with my former top-loading Maytag, but am disappointed that 6 years is all you can get with this machine. I bought a Maytag refrigerator and the ice maker broke within the first 3 mos. I can't buy any more Maytags.

Beautiful but not effective!

Georgieboy 11/1/2018

I bought this washer 6 years ago. I really thought the Maytag brand would bring a sturdy and reliable product but it is not the case. Sure it looks good, sure it is expensive but it does not do the job! The washes are very long, always on sensing mode... If you wash some towels, you cannot do a BIG laundry but lots of small ones as BIG laundry will last for up to 3-4 hours! Sometimes when too much foam, it comes to a SUD mode and stalls... you cannot actually make it spin on request and it is a really missing function. When you want to pour bleach in the compartiment, it spills very easily (very hard to reach). If some bleach falls off, be prepare to bleach some clothes you do not want to! We usually wash non bleach whites after using bleach as we want to make sure to stop scrapping our clothes! The rubber boot in front just disintegrated and it is expensive. Now my washer went into an electronic problem and we have to wait 5 days to get a repairman. I miss good old metal washers without electronics... it looks like Maytag is working on programmed obsolescence so you buy a new one! Very, very disappointed...

Smell is sickening

Jlore 9/19/2018

The model we have MHW6000X (6 yrs old), has worked well. Occasional issues with user panel that can be reset by unplugging. But, the real issues is that each time we use the machine, for as long as we've had it, smells like our sewer has backed up (no exaggeration intended). We open windows and go to another part of the house. The Affresh tablets cover the smell up but, why is that necessary and, if I don't have them, it's bad. I like to save water but will be glad When we are done with this washer.

Replacing a $600 part in 3 years

Jeffrey1976CA 9/9/2018

America Pride, what a crock. I'm stuck with a useless piece of junk in less than 3 years. The control board is done and the part alone costs almost $600.

F06 E02 error code fix for me

cl206 9/9/2018

I've had this machine (mhw6000xw2) since Nov 2011 and this past Thursday it stopped working and the F06 E02 error code showed up. I unplugged the power, opened up the back (which is very easy, just gotta remove like 10-12 1/4 inch fasteners) and for me the issue turned out to be the motor control board (I had already cleaned the drain filter and it wasn't the solution). To remove the MCB: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OfwNr0e9ao. You CAN check to see if this is broken. Once you get it out, you can pop out the green circuit board and in my case, there was a broken black transistor and some burnt spots. I ordered the part from RepairClinic on Thursday night and I got it and replaced it on Sat and it is working like new. Not the cheapest place for the OEM part but it came very fast. Hope this helps someone!!! PS I have the matching dryer too and guess what, the drum cracked last year and I also replaced the drum myself and now it works great!

Socks Get Stuck in Drain ALL the time - STINKS

AnitMatag1 8/21/2018

I bought this set about 5-6 years ago and it has been a nightmare! From socks clogging the joke of a drain to the rattling it now makes during the spin cycle - Worst washer ever I would not recommend!

Dreaded F06/E01 Error

wolfpackfan92 8/13/2018

We have had this machine for around 5 years now and got this error today. Based ont he research I'm seeing, there are two components that "could" be the issue, both totaling $300 per (not including labor). Based on this vague issue and from the advice of a couple of appliance repair shops locally, they state that it could be one or both of the parts, which at that point, I could just buy a new machine. I can't say I'm terribly happy with the outcome and will probably be looking into a new machine at this point.

TERRIBLE and SMELLY!

Rissa08227 7/31/2018

We bought this machine about 5 years ago and it has continued to be nothing but a nightmare from the first year. We have had to have it repaired 4+ times, including locking up during a cycle to where I can't even get the stuff out so it doesn't mildew while we wait on it to be repaired. The access panel is in the back requiring it to be completely removed and disassembled for maintenance. It smells HORRIBLE all the time despite the fact that we keep it open when not in use and use Affresh monthly. I will never buy a machine from Maytag again.

Reliability is concening.

JJ_WI 7/30/2018

The reliability of components on this unit is very disappointing. We've had the unit 7 years and one of the draws to this unit was it's premium positioning and the advertised 10 year warranty. I understand the 10 year warranty only covers major components like the drum motor, but I am at the point where this unit will be going to the scrap yard due to inferior electronics well before that 10 year mark. About 6 months ago I had to replace the dispenser motor and the drum vent hose. Today the machine is inoperable and gives the F06 E01 error code. This code indicates either the main control board OR the motor control board could be faulty. Each of these parts is approximately $300. If the code allowed the ability to pinpoint which of these two is faulty, I would consider fixing. However, I am not will to spend $600 to replace 2 parts on the machine or guess which is faulty to try to replace first. DUE TO THE POOR RELIABILITY OF COMPONENTS AND POOR DIAGNOSTICS I WILL BE MOVING ON TO A TOP LOAD UNIT FROM ANOTHER MANUFACTURER. Pros: Many features (even though we seldom used more than the standard ones), very large capacity Cons: Reliability of components is very underwhelming for a premium priced unit, continually have to clean the drum to door seal to avoid musty odor and buildup

Do not buy this machine!

AustinEducator 7/27/2018

This machine lasted six years. The control board is shot and is no longer made. It would take 3-4 weeks and considerable cost for a used one. I didn't expect to have to buy a new machine so soon. I'm switching back to a basic, cheaper, top-loading machine from another manufacturer.

Worked okay... then whole computer died

jene33 7/25/2018

We bought this (with the matching dryer) in 2012 and it worked okay for the most part. A few days ago, it started to display the E01 F06 error codes. We had a service call the cost $200 for him to tell us that he has no idea what is wrong and that the computer is not communicating anymore. We were quite gentle with the machine and never overloaded it. Quite disappointed at the life span of the product and now we have to spend another $1300 plus tax to buy a new one on top of the $200 service call. Especially since we just renovated our kitchen and bought all new whirlpool appliances!!

Get Ready to BE the Maytag Repair man

Unpaid Repairman 7/24/2018

We bought the MHW6000XW 3.5 years ago after a heavy sales pitch on the merits of the Maytag Maxima. It was a replacement for our Bosch that served us marvelously for 7 years before needing a costly motor failure repair, we wish now we had stayed with Bosch and paid the bill. This Maytag has never run for more than a few months (after the warranty expired!!!), calling for repairman is ridiculous so we have done all the work ourselves, 2 X new MCU boards, new drain pump, replaced leaking door gasket twice. We have paid twice for the machine in just parts not counting my labor having to take the whole machine apart just to access the pump trap to correct frequent f09 errors. (I'm getting good at this and it still takes 2+ hours. The maytag repairman from the old commercials is only sitting around because he's too smart to own one of these himself and all us owners are forced to take over the repair duties on our own machine. I notice this machine is no longer avaialble. Hmm, wonder why!!!

Don't buy

Kimmy123 7/9/2018

Since the day I bought this washer I've had nothing but problems. Each year at least 2 repairs and last one cost over $400. I just got another error E01 and F06 less then 6 months after last repair and now I'm told over $500 to repair and potential no part even available. So disappointed in this washer and Maytag overall.

Part no longer reproduced machine useless

Do not buy a Maytag 6/23/2018

The Central Control Unit went out on the machine and they no longer MAKE it! Ridiculous! It's was manufactured in 2012. This is ABSOLUTELY ridiculous! Terrible Maytag, Terrible!

Disappointed & broke!

DNKT 6/21/2018

We bought a matching washer and dryer 5 1/2 years ago from Lowe's. Everything from Lowe's has been a hassle from the start. We have replaced the control board three times on the washer. The money that I have spent repairing the washing machine, I could have bought a new matching set without the problems. Here I am again 4th time!! Error code f06 e01. This error code links to two problems it could be , you won't know until you spend the money to see which issue it is . Now I'm out shopping for a new washer and hopefully it matches my pedestal or else I'm out that $150 also. Side note - there is not an easy access panel to clean out the drain. You basically have to take the cover completely. something I will be looking for in a new washing machine.

Feeling jaded

Vamby 6/19/2018

I bought this beautiful, expensive set mostly because I trusted Maytag. Like so many others, I've had multiple problems with the electronics and have spent as much in repairs as on the washer itself. Then there is the SMELL! There is a horrible smell of musty mildew that, no matter what I try, what I use, just permeates the air and makes the house smell. But hey, they sure are pretty. After 7 years, I am dumping them and getting something else. Goodbye, Maytag.

7 years old and unfixable

AllThatCaz 6/7/2018

my warranty company has deemed my MHW6000XW2 unrepairable (F06/E01 errors require new control panel (W10387857) which is an obsolete part...obsolete after 7 years! Maytag clearly is looking to generate new sales. #PlannedObsolesence

Rip off

TRER 5/30/2018

I bought this expensive Maxima in 2013 expecting to get 10 years of use out of it. Now it needs the mother board part which is almost $500! Outrageous! Over half of what I paid for it just for the part to repair it not including labor. BE WARNED.

Great washer!!

Johnmorris 5/22/2018

I bought this washer 4 years ago and it has given me excellent service four 4 years. I can see that others have bought this machine and maybe had a bad experience, but I haven't I am lucky because I live in an area with a good appliance repair business that is Maytag rated. I have had only one leak from the machine and that was caused by clothing being caught between the door and the rubber seal, other than that this washing machine has performed flawlessly and I would recommend it to anyone.d

Disappointed

hchawkinsiii 5/14/2018

I am having the same issues as a lot of other reviewers. Getting the E01 F09 code. Replaced the pump. Worked for a couple of weeks then get the same code. I can hear the pump running and the drain isn't clogged. There isn't anything in the washer and it still won't run a cycle (not even the clean the washer cycle). I don't want to spend the money to replace anything else since it will be as much as buying a new one. I thought I could trust the Maytag brand but it turns out that I was wrong.

QUALITY HAS REALLY GONE DOWNHILL

Tony3641 4/19/2018

I bought this washer and matching dryer around March 2012 from Home Depot. I purchased this washer because of the online reviews, Maytag's repair history, and its capacity. However, I'm now having to replace the motor control board for the second time within six months after getting the F01 E01 error codes each time. Looking at the more recent reviews, this issue appears to be widespread. I've only wash loads for myself (one person) since I've owned it, rarely more than four times a week. I expected this to last at least 10 years with no issue. However, at this failure rate, if I was doing laundry for a four-person family, both problems would have occurred within two years of owning the machine. The cost to replace the motor control board is outrageous making buying a brand new washer a better option than repairing this broken one.

Extremely Disappointed

coutney 3/16/2018

I bought this washer in January 2013 and it washed fine, but the rubber door seal got mildewy and no matter how much I cleaned it out I couldn't get it to go away. It finally tore this week causing a leak. I called a maytag certified repair company and they charged me $300 to replace it, That's half of the price of a new washer. Then two days later I get the code E01 F09 and can't do my laundry again. The technician came back out and cleared the drain and it worked fine for him. As soon as I put clothes in when he left it gave me the error code again. He told me it could be the drain pump which parts will be $200 plus labor, or it could be the sensor. Both a pricey, and at that point I might as well get a new machine! I bought this washer with the hopes it would last me 20 plus years, like the old ones. But we are only just outside the 5 year warranty and having to replace the entire thing!

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Shireen 2/22/2018

I BOUGHT THIS WASHER AND THE MATCHING DRYER 4 YEARS AGO. WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR THE WASHER STARTED LEAKING. FOUND TO BE THE INTERIOR HOUSING THAT THE DETERGENT DISPENSER GOES INTO. PART WAS AROUND $250-$300 NOT INCLUDING THE LABOR. THE REPAIR MAN TRIED TO GET MAYTAG TO SEND US THE PART FOR FREE SINCE IT WAS WITHIN A YEAR OF PURCHASE, BUT THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN. THEN THE SEAL ON THE DOOR HAD TO BE REPLACED A YEAR LATER. AND JUST LAST YEAR THE SAME INTERIOR HOUSING UNIT FOR THE DETERGENT DISPENSER STARTED LEAKING AGAIN AND WE HAD TO REPLACE IT AGAIN. AT THE EXACT SAME TIME LAST YEAR WE HAD TO REPLACE THE MOTOR ON OUR MATCHING DRYER. THE TWO REPAIRS LAST YEAR COST US OVER $600 WITH LABOR. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! ALSO, MY WASHER IS VERY LOUD AND THE REPAIR MAN SAYS THAT'S JUST HOW THEY ARE. MAYTAG USED TO BE A GREAT COMPANY AND VERY RELIABLE, WHAT HAPPENED? I DON'T THINK I WILL EVERY BUY MAYTAG AGAIN!!!

Spin Cycle Issues

richard/dorothy 12/8/2017

We have had this washer for 2 years. The machine has recently developed issues with the final lspin cycle. The unit reaches the final cycle and states 10 minutes remaining. It spins for about 30 seconds and the number 10 minutes goes down to 1 minute and shortly ends cycle. The clothes use to stick throughout the drum due to the normal functioning spin cycle.This no longer happens. When removing the clothes are very damp to the point it is take twice the regular time to dry clothes

Problem that seems to be widespread

robbyA 12/4/2017

We bought a Maytag MHW6000XW front load washer in 2012 at Home Depot. Front door leaked and seal was replaced in 2015 and we were told this had been a problem. Yesterday (12/2017) a code showed when washer stopped 5 minutes into normal cycle F06 E01. Have found no info as to what this code indicates. Washer no longer will run cycle and "unknown" code suggests to call service. Found reviews and see that we are not alone with this problem and that this will be an expensive fix. Wish we had our old scratched and dented, but always working Kenmore again. At 20+ years old it wasn't pretty but always washed the clothes.

POOR ASSEMBLY, POOR TRAINING BY APPLIANCE REPAIR

SPARKY 44 11/25/2017

PURCHASED MAYTAG FOR ITS REPUTATION AS WE HAVE OTHER MAYTAG APPLIANCES. FIRST BREAKDOWN BEFORE A YEAR OLD, SERVICE TECH. REPLACED DISPENSER MOTOR AND SWITCH, PAID FOR THIS REPAIR IT SEAMED ON A ANNUAL BASES. THE SWITCH WIRING WERE ALWAYS CORRODED,THE SWITCH WAS NOT BAD. THE REAL PROBLEM WITH THIS WASHER WAS THE TOP VENT HOSE WAS NOT CONNECTED TO MACHINE AND THE MOISTURE THAT SHOULD HAVE VENTED OUT OF WASHER WAS STAYING INSIDE THE WASHER CABINET AND CAUSE OF CORROSION AT THE DISPENSER SWITCH CONTACTS. POOR ASSEMBLY @ FACTORY, OR LOW GRADE PARTS, AND POOR TRAINING OF REPAIR TECH.

Error code and door locked

9/30/2017

I have had this washer and dryer set for several years. Tonight I had a load that was done washing and a code was displaying "e02 f06". And the door locked is displayed. The door is locked. We can not get it to open. From what I have been reading from other reviewers it may be the control panel which is very expensive to fix. Of course it would happen the night before we are leaving on vacation. Beyond frustrated.

Stopped working!

9/20/2017

I purchased this washer in 5/2011 after shopping around. The main reason we purchased this washer was due to Maytags great repair history. We wanted a washer that would last. Within the first year we had repairs done while it was under warranty. The tub started having a leak a year ago and now the main control board went (code E01 F06) The part is around $300.00 not including the repair person. It is cheaper to purchase a new washer then to repair. I am very disappointed with this washer.

Would never buy again or recomend to anybody!

9/13/2017

Purchased pair in 2012 and had a issue in 2015 ...CCU replaced at $375 parts and labor!!! and now needs a MCU which is about the same! First of all where is the reliability!!! Second why are there such outrageously expensive parts to begin with!!! Get back to a well made product, with simple parts, reasonably repaired!!!

dissappointed

8/30/2017

I bought this washer around 5 years ago, and I've been having problems with it for a few years now but thought they were small problems. I bought Maytag because I thought it was one of the best brands, but I was pretty disappointing in the performance of it. Recently. it has been giving me error codes, and the fix is pricey. I don't think I would recommend this brand.

Maytag continues to disappoint!

Flipside 8/17/2017

I purchased this washer approximately five years ago. Two years after purchase, the pump filter needed replacing ($150). Now the control panel ($300) is allegedly the problem. Funny, why do I see reviews for the SAME model washer having the SAME issues?The "limited" 10 year warranty is a joke! It covers nothing that will ever need replacement. If Maytag want to really warranty their products, then warranty the items that always seem to be an issue (i.e. control panels, pressure control valves, pump filter, etc.).By the way, did I mention that I also had to replace the control panel on my Maytag dishwasher after only three years of very minimal use? I see a problem here!

Stpped working. Motor control board error

5/24/2017

I purchased this washer about three and a half years ago already had to repair it 3 times, now another error is showing about the motor control board. Way too expensive to replace. Now I have to buy a new one, but definitely will not buy Maytag again.

Very Disappointed - Seems Common Issues are Apparent

BrokenDownMaytag 5/16/2017

We have had this Washer since since 2012... Only 5 years old and now have huge repair bills. First error code was for the MCU. The tech ordered and replaced ($375), to find out that we now had an error code pointing to the CCU, so ordered and replaced ($200)... guess what now we are getting an error code indicating that the display controller is also bad.... so at $600 parts and labor we still have a very large paper weight. Not impressed Maytag. Going to attempt to return all of the electronics H/W and purchase a new machine.... Likely not going to be a Maytag. After reading other reviews, this seems like a common theme for many that have this Washer....
