Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

THE ABSOLUTE WORST WASHING MACHINE EVER!!!!

hkbuck 7/21/2019

I ordered this machine in April 2018 from my local family-owned appliance store. They only sell appliances that are made in the USA. I wanted the largest capacity washing machine so I could wash a king-size comforter. We live in Hawaii and have a lot of house guests who go through bath towels and beach towels and sheets like crazy, and I wanted a machine that could handle all those large, heavy-duty loads as well as small, delicate loads. I thought I had found the perfect washing machine. The first problem I experienced was that Maytag jerked us around for SIX MONTHS before they finally shipped my washing machine. It was finally installed in November 2018. At first, I was happy with this model. I was able to wash 8 large beach towels in one load! But within a couple months, we started noticing that clothes were coming out dirtier than when they went in. T-shirts were coming out covered in lint, hair, dirt, and grease! We called and asked for a repairman to take a look at the machine. He said they were getting complaints about this model, and he told us to use the DEEP FILL setting for every load. DEEP FILL makes no difference in the outcome of the load for us - everything is still coated with lint and hair and dirt. We have tried reducing the size the load so that everything gets adequately agitated - which also has made no difference. I am beyond disgusted with this machine and with Maytag. I have had Whirlpool, GE, LG, and Sears model washing machines, and even the cheapest, most basic machine I've ever had has done a far superior job than this overpriced lemon. I have been in contact with my local appliance dealer/service store, and I am demanding that Maytag make this right. This machine needs to be hauled away to the dump, and Maytag owes me a machine that operates correctly.

Not enough water nor agitation!!!

Shanazzi 7/19/2019

Very disappointed with this washer. It barely fills up with enough water even on the deep fill mode. There is barely any agitation at all!! A week after purchase, I called Maytag to tell them what was going on, they said they'd be happy to send over a tech, but it would cost me $90!!!! What? I just bought a possible defective washer of your brand & you want to charge me $90 to evaluate it? I declined..... just terrible!!

Unsatisfactory

Evelin 7/8/2019

This washer is huge and has all these features but does a very poor job and cleaning and washing properly. Was told I could wash large comforters, they fit loosely but the agitator is too slow. Small loads don't get enough water, clothe come out dry in areas where it never touches water through a full cycle. Comforters don't move around enough to thorough distribute the detergent that it sticks and leaves soap stains. Awful washer, this one gives Maytag a bad name. I tried returning it with the store and they gave me the run around, Maytag claims it is suppose to operate this way! $1200 washer, doesn't operate properly and I'm stuck with it.

Doesn't clean as well as I expect it to

MommaKass 6/29/2019

We have had this for a week now. I've been mostly impresssd until today. After a cycle with all the extra functions turned on for extra attention to a particular item of clothing, not only was the item not clean, it didn't even look like it had been washed at all. It was damp, so obviously it sent through the cycle, but it was definitely not clean. I am very unimpressed. I want to be able to rely on this machine, and now I know I can't. Maybe a front load was the better option.

Great washer and Dryer!

Whall10a 6/28/2019

I bought the washer and dryer two months ago and I love them! I had a front load washer and dryer ( another brand) and the washer leaked badly after six months of use and it had mold in it that I tried repeatedly to get out and never could get out. I love the new washer and dryer and will never buy a washer and dryer that is made by a company that does not have years of washer and dryer experience like Maytag.

J Alan 6/24/2019

We are very pleased with our new washer we were way overdo, our old one would jump to the middle of the garage with only the hoses holding it back (lol) unless you hold it down. Thus washer is so quite and runs very smoothly. I love all the options. I love having the option of water efficiency or to deep fill for heavy soil items. The clear lid allows me to see just how the clothes are being treated. We are very pleased and look forward to receiving our new dryer as well in mid July. Thanks so much for the opportunity to share my experiences, it meets all my expectations and more. Thanks Josh Orlando Fl

Big machine!

NoleFan 6/17/2019

I have had it for six months now and the only thing I do not like is a common problem with most of today's machines. It has very little water in the tub and although it has an agitator, there's not enough water to allow it to agitate the load. Even selecting "Deep Cycle" it is nowhere close to what level used to be obtained in normal washing machines. Because of this I have seen some clothes did not get it as clean as they could have. Other than that, I like the machine.

This washer is everything I was wanting. It's easy to use, conserves water and yet big enough to wash an oversized sleeping bag. No more trips to the laundromat.

TaylorGroup 2/26/2019

So far I love my new washer! It is large, quite and gets the job done. Love all the features. The tub moves around a little, the agitator moves around a little, the cloths seem to move around but I think they could move around more if the agitator moved more ...but so far the job gets done. Very Happy! Gave 4 stars on design, would like to see cloths move around more.

Shawanda 2/18/2019

I love it! And didn't realize that I truly needed an upgrade. I had my other Maytag appliances for over 12 years and they were over worn out. Been through my children being small to now all teenage and adult clothes. So upgrade was very much needed. I love Maytag products for the quality. Customers may pay more, but you can't beat a Maytag product that meets and exceeds your needs!!!

Not very good washer & for the price it's terrible

Bob Griffith 12/17/2018

Disappointed to say the very least. Firstly is the Giant Label staying "TEN YEAR WARRANTY" but that is a fake misnomer it has a year warranty 10 years on two little items that they know rarely ever break so their confidence in the machine from the beginning is obviously lackluster. In the near future I will do a YouTube overview of this washer. As much as respect I've had for Maytag products this one I can assure you is going to be near zero! The unit already makes a loud grinding noises like gears are not meshing during the spin cycle where it will spin and then coast then reengage the spin to a little faster RPM and coast. Worse, it does not nearly spin fast enough at any time or long enough to thoroughly remove the water from the clothes and there's still enough water in the loathing where you can ring it by hand and get water out of it. I've never had this happen from any other washer I 've owned and I've owned washers as an adult since 1972. Like most complaints about this washer it truly does not feed enough water into the wash-tub even on its option of a deep-fill cycle (which is a joke)! There is no owner way of overriding this and I've had two expensive king-size comforters within the first week of owning this washer it that it literally ripped the cover of the comforters because there was not enough water in the wash tub and it was getting the comforters caught around the turning agitator. Another exasperating thing about this overpriced $1200 washer is the fact is you cannot choose to run a extra spin-cycle! The only option is it offer the consumer is a "Rinse and Spin" cycle selection which defeats the purpose of trying to further spin-remove the excess water out of the clothing! How stupid is that, No-Way to simply allow the washer to do an additional spin. All in all disappointment is the best recommendation I can truly offer this washing machine

deacsrider 12/13/2018

I looked for a long time before deciding on this washer. Large capacity has handled all I've done with it. Clothes are clean and look like new. Highly recommend. It's very musical and much better than the harsh sounds my old washer made when cycle was finished

dottsmom 11/29/2018

I really like this washing machine-however it would be perfect if there was a warm water rinse option. Studies have shown the clothes get much cleaner with a warm water rinse. It also does not remove the dog hair as well as my front loader (different brand). I have also removed clothes that have detergent residue on them. If the agitator was up and down instead of side to side, I feel it would do a better job of cleaning.
