In 2011 we purchased a Maytag 9000 series washer and dryer set from Lowes. With in 9 months the washing machine had gotten so loud during the spin cycle that we could not carry on a conversation on the other side of the house.
We called Maytag and were given the name of 1 local rapair person who could come and look at it. We were informed that the bearings were going out and that it would cost about $1200 and take up to a month to repair. The repair person also informed us that the friction could cause a fire. We contacted maytag back with the news.
At that point were told to drive to our closest Lowes, which, due to the fact that they shut down our local store, was now 175 miles drive one way, to pick up a replacement washer. We were told they didn't want the old one back. Not worth repairing. Less then a year later our "new" washer was doing the same thing.
We have now been fighting with Lowes for the last several weeks to get our money back on an obviously dangerous, defective product. Come to find out, after speaking to our sons daycare provider, she has had the same issues with her Maytag 9000 series washer.
Be very careful if your washer starts getting progressivly louder and louder, contact Maytag it is a fire hazard.
