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 and 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.

New machine does not work after 2 months

Submitted by Bruce - 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

Submitted by Paul - 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

Submitted by Dog mama - 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.
