New machine does not work after 2 months

Bruce 3/22/2017

New front load washer does not handle bulky bathroom mats. The Machine locks up in the spin cycle. Local dealer was very timely and sent out a repair person to evaluate. Said this is the design of the system BUT also the washer machine water pump is not draining correctly. They have sent for replacement part. We have always had Maytag because they are so reliable...THIS new machine is a problem right out of the box. Not sure if this is a lemon or has Maytag slipped in design and quality...we will see.

Simple to use, quiet, solid

Paul 3/16/2017

We bought these after seeing the high rating on Consumer Reports. We installed this washer dryer combo about a month ago, and we've been very impressed. Super quiet, simple to install and use. Both units seem very well made. Time will tell, but for now we are thrilled with the purchase.

Great Overall Washer

Dog mama 3/16/2017

Bought this a month ago and am very pleased with the features and way it works. I do a lot of extra heavy wash - dog blankets and towels - and it accommodates these loads very well. Like the cycle that I can run to wash the washer after doing kennel wash.
