Rated 1 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 Piece of Junk Worst machine ive ever had the misfortune to own. This machine will not stop shaking and banging around no matter who levels it or the size of the load. I used to have a high opinion of Maytag. 3/7/11
Rated 1 out of 5 by Never buy another Maytag again! This is the absolute WORST appliance purchase I've ever made! Thankfully we purchased an extended protection plan. The repair man came out more than 6 times over the four years we've had this machine. It ripped up our laundry room floor with all of the bouncing around - and that was on the lowest spin cycle. The dryer isn't much better. So glad to replace them both! 3/12/11
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst investment ever We have had nothing but trouble with this machine. We didn't know there was a class action recall, so missed out on it. It has cost us more in repairs than the price we paid for it. Coins get stuck in the pump and stops it from draining - the pump has been replaced 3 times! We want our money back! 1/8/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by unbalanced and stinks My wife had to have this machine and I am tired of the complaints. It walks all over the floor. The repair man couldn't figure it out. It has rotten egg smell that we can't get rid of. If they had a rating of waste of money I would of gave it that. 2/25/13
