I have a Maytag Bravo washer, and I have the same rusting problem around the dispenser that e everyone is commenting on....my machine is 8 years old, and this problem started about 3 yrs ago. We first noticed a minute rust spot on the outside of the plastic dispenser but thought this was no big deal in the beginning, however, the rust area has grown considerably now into the upper rim of the wash bin.

It really looks bad now, however, we not yet noticed any rust getting onto our whites. So, now I'm reading all of these comments, and I'm finding out that this is a problem for other washing machine manufacturers like Samsung and Westinghouse. This is terrible! The material used for the bleach tray is a cheap plastic!

This ISN'T SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN! My machine cost us over $1,300.00 new. We have always used Maytag....my parents used Maytag ever since I can remember, and nothing like this has ever happened.

Yes, the motors have gone out a couple of times, but never this. Really upset over this!!!!!

Product or Service Mentioned: Maytag Washing Machine.

Reason of review: Bad quality.

Monetary Loss: $1300.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.

Maytag Cons: Shabby product, Poor customer support, Poor service.

had the same issue and they claim it is not a reported issue. Here is what my chat session consisted of with them: As a long time Maytag appliance user, I contacted Maytag and their response is "I am glad to say there are no recalls on model MVWB450WQ1 has had the lowest repair rate of any other appliance manufacture on the market today for the past five years.

While other consumers may have had an issue with the appliance in the past, it is possible that those issues were caused by factors such as use and care as well as a regular failure. This is why we provide a standard warranty with all of our products. would have to recommend service so that a certified technician could inspect the unit. We can assist you with scheduling service with a local certified technician.

You may also visitwww.maytag.com/owners and click on Schedule Service to arrange a service appointment. Due to the discrepancies with anonymous and unverified forum posts, we rely solely on the communications between our technicians and our engineering teams to determine if there is a common problem resulting from a quality defect or design flaw.

Thankfully, your appliance is not affected by either at this time. YES NOW I AM A PISSED CONSUMER TOO.


I just spoke with Whirlpool Corporation who denies this issue of rusting out around the dispenser being a known issue. I disagreed with her and advised her there has been multiple reviews on this issue besides mine.


My machine is doing the same thing! The rust starts at the bleach dispenser which I have never used because bleach triggers my asthma.

My previous Maytag lasted 20+ years and this one is 9. Bearings also going out. We have extended warranty but rust is "cosmetic" and not covered!

Technician says to buy another Maytag because all machines made now will rust. This is wrong and we have no recourse.
