This High Performance front Loader 3000 has many features one would want in a washer,
3 Star Review   By tara on Home Depot - Mar 22, 2013   

I have had this Maytag 3000 for 2 1/2 years with no problem until two weeks ago when I heard a horrible noise sounding like the drum was being twisted. I called the repairman and they came over (bought the 4 year warranty) right away. Within a few minutes he had the back off and said the arm was broken and the bearing was gone and the drum needs to be replaced and it was probably more expensive to repair and Maytag would probably just give me money. True enough, I was amazed because the washer worked great prior to this. But the warranty allowed me to purchase another machine which I am going to do this weekend. Probably NOT going with another Maytag and probably less gadgets, and a top loader instead, Consumer Reports gave it high reviews, so not following them either. Too bad, but Maytag needs to reevaluate their machines.

Worst appliance I every bought.
1 Star Review   By Mikeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee on Home Depot - Mar 6, 2013   

We have only had this washer for 6 months and the pump has broken twice. Even thou it is under warranty it takes forever to get someone out and then they had to order the part. The washer was out of service for three weeks. Never bay a Maytag again.

So quiet I have to keep checking to see if it's running!
5 Star Review   By PattiSAZ on Home Depot - Feb 13, 2013   

We owned a Kenmore for 6 years that was going to be very costly to repair. I wasn't in the mood to shop for a new washing machine and Maytag came recommended by family members so we purchased this one. We've owned it for almost a month and I am very happy with how the clothes are coming out cleaner than my Kenmore, the ease of using the machine and the quietness of the machine. Very happy so far that we purchased this brand and model.

Maytag Front Load Washer - HORRIBLE Product - Lasted 2 Years
1 Star Review   By TV76 on Home Depot - Feb 3, 2013   

Disappointed in this 2000 Series machine and Maytag. Have had for two years, and guess what!? Like many of the other reviews - the bearings have worn out and the whole tub assembly has to be replaced. This cost is more than I paid to purchase this machine originally. Will never buy Maytag or Whirlpool again!

Do NOT Buy This Washer
1 Star Review   By waqueau on Home Depot - Jun 9, 2012   

We bought a Maytag HE front-loading machine in January 2011. This March, it began making noises so we called for a repair tech to come out. Long story short, the washer is shot-- the bearings on the main wash tub had worn out. It was estimated to cost twice what we paid to repair. The tech could see I was getting angry; he told me to next time to buy another brand. "These Maytags," he said, "I've had five or six of 'em in the last month go out like this. I've only had one call for a in the last year, and that one was damaged in shipping." If you DO buy this washer, get the extended warranty. We did and we salvaged a few bucks out of the deal. But Maytag, frankly, is junk.

DON'T BUY THIS WASHER!
1 Star Review   By Chris on Home Depot - Apr 18, 2012   

If there was a way to give this negative stars I would have utilized that option. A little helpful advice for those of you out there seeking to purchase a front load washer: If you buy this one you are throwing money down the drain. Complete garbage. I bought it in August of 2009 from Home Depot. Last weekend it sounded like a train was riding thru my basement - next thing you know parts are everywhere and the machine is worthless. It would cost more to fix it, and quite frankly I would like something I can depend on. A washer has certain functions we rely on: WASH clothes: RINSE clothes: SPIN clothes - this machine barely performed these tasks on a regular basis, and now it is nothing but junk that I regret wasting money upon. Avoid this machine and brand. I will never consider a Maytag again. Yet another shining example of why I should have listened to my mother - she always hated Maytag. So, I just bought a nice quiet LG top load...we remain patient.

Broke after the Warranty
1 Star Review   By dissapointed on Home Depot - Feb 14, 2012   

Bought this on a black Friday special; thought I was getting a great deal on a reliable product. After 1.5 years the washer bearing broke and the drum makes and awful noise and won't spin. Home Depot's extended warranty company set me up with a service repair with the company that lacked in customer service. I called maytag directly to find out that the part I was waiting on would be on back order for 3 months and cost half the price of a new machine. I called the extended warranty company to report my findings about the delay, after a month of waiting they refunded what I had paid for the washer (no sales tax). So I waited the 3 months, called to order the part from maytag, found out the part had doubled in price (making it more expensive then what I paid) and it would be on back order for another 3 months.

Great product
5 Star Review   By Jamie on Home Depot - Feb 12, 2012   

After 11 years, I needed to replace my old front load washer. I researched front-load washers on-line for a couple of weeks before deciding on this one. I've had the washer for about a month now and use it several times a week. I've used most of the wash cycles and the fabric softener dispenser feature (this was a big deal for me because the fabric softener dispenser on my old washer never worked right). So far, everything has worked perfectly. Vibration on extra high spin is not excessive. I've washed from delicate/hand washables to heavy blankets - everything has come out clean.

Won't Last long
2 Star Review   By Maytagged on Home Depot - Feb 4, 2012   

If that Maytag repair guy in the commercials needs something to do, I have a washer and a dryer that is just past the warranty that are both junk. Just the parts it needs cost more than some other appliance brands. I will never purchase Maytag(Maywork) again.

Piece of Junk!!!!!
1 Star Review   By LaundryLady on Home Depot - Jan 31, 2012   

Bought this washer to replace a Whirlpool front loader that had died after 2 years. Right after the Maytag was installed, starting with the first load, there was an error message. Once the wash cycle began, after a few miniutes it started beeping and would not fill. I then had to unplug the washer, restart the load and then it would work. Whirlpool now owns Maytag and the same problem was happening with the Whirlpool until the drum broke. I had the Maytag removed and bought an LG instead. No problems with the LG so far and also bought the 5 year warranty !!!!!! Well worth the price since I spent $100 for a repair man to tell me the Whirlpool needed a new computer board that was going to cost another $200.
