Three years ago I purchased a Maytag MFW9600SQ1 Front load washer, along a Maytag refrigerator and gas dryer. In Canada this washer cost $1243 including taxes. I was told by the dealer that this machine was one of Maytag's better products. This washer does approx 3...

I had the same issue. It failed during first year and they repaired.

Now having same issue.

Maytag told me not recalled, so out of luck. I told them many complaints for that model but does not matter.

Dissatified

Paid over $800 for something that does not clean laundry. Water level controlled by sensors and does not even cover than completely. Agitation is non-exsistant. Clothes just swish slightly back and forth. Using water from a hose to add to get the water level up. Whites come out just as dingy as when you put them in and dress shirts still have spots of food or regular daily activity on them when done. Takes over an hour to do a load. If you can just repair your old one even if it cost some bucks, you'll be better off.

User's recommendation: Do not buy a Maytag Washer or any that are using the federal mandate water sensor control and no agitator.

"Using water from a hose to add to get the water level up".. You created a bigger problem. Don't tell them you did this.

In the 5 months since we have purchased our Washer, there have been several problems with the rinse and spin cycle actually getting the clothes spun dry. several times I have had to redo that cycle.

There is no agitator, which causes the clothes to spin and end up in a very wet blob in the tub. It's not spinning the water out as expected, and I am very disappointed in this machine and want it replaced with a washer with an agitator or total refund. We've had Maytag washers for the past 55 years and was always happy with them, but this one is a bunch of crap....

User's recommendation: Save your money and buy a different brand.

Washer not workign in 8 months

Maytag - Washer not workign in 8 months
Update by user Oct 06, 2021

Always sitting in limbo. Who knows when a new one will be replaced.

Then I have to wait at least another month for it to be delivered. I physically cannot go to a laundromat.

Original review updated by user Oct 05, 2021
Customer service is awful. No one knows what is going on. I have called multiple times, sit on hold an hour each time. E-mailed, no one knows what is going on. Wrote the BBB. My washer is not agitating, I am now FINALLY to get a new replacement machine. NO ONE can fix my washer(no DO NOT BUY a MAYTAG or Whirlpool(same company now)one nearby, not enough workers and backed up) and it is still under original warranty. So here I sit, waiting to be notified that they have my new washer. But then I have to order a delivery date, and this alone will take at least 4 weeks for it to be delivered.

User's recommendation: do not buy maytag or whirlpool.

Refrigerator door poorly designed.

Top of refrigerator door seal not sealing properly as it only makes 2mm contact with the fridge body; for about 8 CM from handle to hinge side of door. Thus creating a lot of water in fridge resulting in the unit cooling vents freezing up and the fridge no longer cooling. Also it's rather messy wet in fridge compartment! And to say I trusted MAYTAG!

User's recommendation: Buy another from another manufacturer.

Washer not working

I bought a Maytag washer Aug 21, 2017...Maytag Bravos MCT model# MVW655DW has been repaired by a repairman 3 times in the 4 years to the tune of about $350.00. Now it needs a Mother Board -$450.00!! Have tried to actually speak to a customer service agent to no avail. Don't know where to turn. Not a great way to treat your senior citizen customers!!! ESPECIALLY

User's recommendation: Don't buy Maytag.

Poorly designed spin cycle

Bought brand new, 1st year had to get warranty to reset machine because spin cycle kept walking the machine 2 off its location no matter how you arranged the clothes in the basket and how well the floor is leveled. To top loader design and auto balance feature suck.. I am sick and tired of baby sitting the spin cycle in fear that I have to call the Tech guy to reset and not to mention spending an additional 30 to 40 minutes more for the cycle to complete, sometimes wringing the clothes with my own hands.. The wife is sick of it and so am I.getbecause Not sure what to get bea

User's recommendation: Do not by this too loader model!! I am researching the front loader model.

Washer quit draining the water Maytag sucks !!!! I had a Maytag washer the wasn't even 10 years old. Had a repairman come to fix it. He said it would cost me more to fix than buying a new one. Stupid me I bought another Maytag in 2017.Having a lot of problems with it. Having a Maytag authorized repairman coming .Just service call is $100.00 NEVER BUY A MAYTAG WASHER !!! Tried to get in contact through their e-mail website but it wouldn't let me. So I posted on Facebook . Wish I would have checked complaints before buying

User's recommendation: DONT BUY MAYTAG !!!!
