Don't buy a Maytag II
from Novato, CA
Comments about Maytag 2.0 Cu. Ft. Front Loading Washer - White:
I've had lots of washing machines in my time. Recently moved to a small condo and bought a stacking washer/dryer that were maytag. This makes Kenmore look like a high end product. I've had installers check the installation twice and the hoses bang on the wall when it's working. Also you push the start button and it doesn't start for another 30 seconds or so. It washes ok but makes a lot of noise. I have people upstairs so I can only do washing during hours when noise is ok. I had a Maytag refrigerator in my last home that was horrible and made a lot of noise also. I should've known....
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Extremely frustrating; functioned poorly...shredded a
from tallahassee florida
I purchased a Maytag Compact Washer 14 months ago. This is my third Maytag washer; two previously owned machines each lasted for over 20 years. This last purchase has been a nightmare; requiring repair within the first week of purchase. It has functioned poorly since. Extreme difficulty starting, often taking 30 to 45 minutes for the wash cycle to start; water left in bottom of drum; frequent error messages; towels always smelled moldy after washing; Final straw; literally shredded a well-made, white cotton shirt after washing; This garment was washed multiple times, and did not require any special washing instructions. There were also detergent stains on the front of the shirt. Within a week of this incident, I washed a blanket and towels. The washer stopped mid cycle for no apparent reason, leaving a soaked blanket and towels in the water-filled drum. The machine has not worked since and a repair person is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, days later. I am hoping to attach pictures of the shredded garment to this review. Minimum expectations: the machine must start and not be unpredictable in this regard, such that over 90% of the time the machine fails to start and requires multiple attempts before starting. There should not be repeated random error messages that end the wash cycle, only to start again hours later without prompting. I expect for this price: a problem free appliance for minimum of 10 years; tolerate minor issues after 5 years; total non-function after 18 years. Clothes, towels, blankets smelling fresh and clean after washing; maintaining garment integrity, in fabric and color. Should not leave garments smelling musty and looking dingy. Garments should never be destroyed while washing, unless the owner failed to follow proper washing instructions.

My worst home purchase in 45 years!
from tallahassee, florida
Since day 1; press start, and 4 to 5 minutes later it either started or cut off; if it cut off, I knew I was in for a 20 to 30 minutes ordeal...holding the start button and praying I'd get the laundry done that day, UNPREDICTABLE..and DESTRUCTIVE MOST RECENT EXPERIENCE...THIS MACHINE LITERALLY TORE THE ARM OF LINEN/COTTON BLEND WHITE SHIRT TO SHREDS... I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THIS FEAT WAS ACCOMPLISHED WITHOUT AN AGITATOR IN THE DRUM. THIS IS MY 3RD WASHING MACHINE..TWO PRIOR MACHINES LASTED 20+ YEARS EACH. THIS IS GOING TO THE DUMP.
Don't last long.
from Queens, NY
The washer first broke down 6 months after purchase. It broke again just before a year. So, I purchased their extended warranty. The repair service that takes the extended warranty is horrible, One guy didn't want to fix it and told me it would fix itself once we moved washer closer to the drainage. It took a few visits from the same repair service to figure out what needed to be fixed. Once it's fixed, many parts replaced, we are still getting A10 error message. Since the extended warranty expired and many reviewers wrote it only lasted a few years, I'm throwing the machine out.
Does not drain, needs replacement: three years old!
By Upset Mirtha
from Boca Raton, FL
Nobody can fix my three-year old Maytag. I have called three technicians and all of them knew the problem with this machine: it does not spin properly. It leaves my clothes wet, I have to wring them before I put them in the dryer. Nothing can be done about it. I am so disappointed, I have never had a washing machine that lasted only three years!!! Does not even have a cold cycle, so I have to wash many things by hand. Grrr!
DO NOT BUY A MAYTAG!
from Summit, NJ
So disappointed with my Maytag Front Loader. After 3 years it starting giving me the E2 F3 error code. After 3 service calls and $300 in fees, I've been told that it's the circuit board and that MAYBE that will fix the problem! Except I have to pay $200 for the part and another $117 for the service call?! And yes, like the other review, the repairman spent no more than 5 minutes, and most of that was on his computer "looking things up". I only bought this washer because of the brand name, what a huge huge mistake!
from Freeland md
Bought this unit 2yrs ago, worked good no complaints for 6 months, then it happened could not get it to spin. Left it off went to laundry mat for 2 weeks before repairman showed up. Young inexperienced he searched utube to take apart,cleared codes he said, worked great for 2 days then the same, sometimes it spins sometimes not, we clean it quite often and it seems to help, tired of messing with it, going to purchase a new compact front loader, and it willNOT be Maytag!!!!!
So far, really happy with my washer
from Tampa, FL
Even though I had to have my washer replaced after 10 months I am really happy with how this little washer performs. It is really good at balancing the loads and can handle more laundry than you think it would. Love it, love it, love it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Breaks after very short time period
from Waco, TX
Purchased this item around 2 years ago as we wanted something compact that would fit in a closet. We have the same problem many other users here have--the spin cycle stops working resulting in wet clothes. F22 error code comes up sometimes as well indicating the door latch is broken, but the repairman said that these washers aren't really worth replacing. I don't normally write reviews, but did this one as I am searching for a new washer after only a couple of years and this one came up in my google search. Hopefully this helps someone considering this model change their mind. Buy just about anything else. These are engineered to break after minimal use.
Terrible experience with this machine
from Frederick, MD
I bought this machine on 3/1/2015. Within the first three months I had to call for service because of an A10 code (no drain), when the repairman arrived he could not work on the machine because it was not labeled with the serial and model number, this is how the machine came to me from. I was FINALLY able to get all that straightened out and he replaced the circuit board. Have since had about 4 other services call for the SAME reason. Back in November the repairman replaced the pump, last week A10 popped up again, having the pump replaced again today. Maytag/Whirlpool was not sympathetic when I complained they seemed not to care about the extra expense going to the laundry mat or me as a customer. I guess around the 3rd service call I placed, I had to wait more than a week for them to send someone after all the troubles I had encountered I thought they would move me up. They have finally broken me, I am looking for a new machine after only having this machine for a year. I will never purchase another appliance from Maytag/Whirlpool I will discourage anyone else that I know from purchasing products from them as well. I wish anyone that buys this machine the best of luck, it has been nothing but a headache for me.
