Maytag washer/dryer

Wanted to post a message regarding Maytag. We sold our 35 year old Maytag
washer when we sold our house. Because of this history, 18 months ago we
purchased mid-line washer and dryer. Both have been repaired several times.
Now out of warantee, the washer floods the floor on any large load.
Repairman says it's our fault. Dryer squeaks like a banchee. Maytag says
"too bad". BEWARE.

Did he give you specifics? Must be a reason.

We had bad experiences with our Maytag, too - less than a year old -
frequent but intermittent leaks - 6 service calls - it wasn't overloaded,
it was level, yadda, yadda, yadda - FINALLY the last repair tech, noticed
two or three drops of oil on the floor under the washer - he ordered a
replacement transmission - BINGO - not a problem since. His thought was
that the transmission was "slipping" causing the tub to go into it's spin
routine before all the water was pumped out, and some of the water was
getting slung out over the top of the tub when it went to spin. He also
told us to NOT open the top when it was on the drain cycle, just before it
went to spin - he said that he had seen that cause the transmission to
"jump" into spin before all the water was pumped out.

All in all, next time I'll buy something better - the "quality" on these
models sucks.

We bought our maytag five years ago. The bearing and seal kit went out.
Maytag says no warranty because its not part of the transmission. Had
serviceman check it and said the parts are all Norge. So what did I buy,
certainly not a Maytag. Only the little plate on the top tha said Maytag.
NO more maytag for me.

Intermingling of parts is becoming more common at brands are bought out and
merged under one corporate roof. Hopefully that Norge stuff was the better
quality of the group, but most likely it was the cheapest.

There was a time when Frigidaire was part of General Motors and was a top
name in appliances. The name has been sold and whored many times in the past
20 or so years and is now just a made cheap appliance owned by a foreign
company.

That's why we spent $200 for a new motor for our 1974 Maytag, Too bad
appliance makers haven't had the talent to build in longevity and
reliability into their products like the automakers.
