We purchased the Neptune Top Load Washer and the Front Load Dryer as a set in 2004. We paid a lot for them planning on their lasting a long time. From the first time I did launry I found I was unhappy with the ay the paddle side agitators worked. They did nothing but twist the clothes into knots. Pants legs, shirt sleeves, etc. were twited to the point you had to work to untangle them. Even if you used the wrinkle control setting, it did not work. Now after nine years the last spin...

I have had this machine for approximately 5 years. One year ago the motor went. It took weeks to get a technician. He arrived at an initial cost of £150 but carried no spare parts so had to come again another week later. He sold me a policy for a year to cover other problems. £250. 7 days after this ran out the heater has failed. I called Maytag and of course would have to embark on the same inital £150 then man come again and pay him for second call plus parts ir. well in excess of... (read more)

I bought my machine back in 2000 and have not had any problem with mold, perhaps because I always leave the door open, albeit water does collect in the bottom of the door seal. The only other problem I've had is the failure of the spin cycle to occur - maybe 5 times. (read more)

A piece of cr@p. We got the extended warranty (thank god) and luckily everything that went wrong...and there was many things...got fixed free of charge. Finally the last straw came when the fabric softener wouldn't drain and it will cost over 300.00 to replace a circuit board. Now the place we bought it from is giving us a credit to get a new one as they are not going to bother fixing it. (read more)

Neptune Maytag mle2000ayw stackable washer.
Worst washer we have ever owned. There is several minutes delay from the time the cycle is done and the unit can be opened, it's very annoying! But the main problems are that often the unit won't spin, so the laundary is soaking wet and the mildew, mold smell from this washer is unbearable. We can not longer use the machine as it's ruining our clothes. I've called Maytag customer service and they actually tell me that they've never had anyone... (read more)

Had this maytag neptune washer for a little over one year. It still works just sounds like a jet is taking off in the laundry room when it spins. Repair man came today. Repairs will be over $800 which is covered on the warranty we had to pay $90 extra for. Since the repairs are over the cost paid for the washer they are only going to give us the $ back and discontinue the warranty. Now that is some way to back your product! Seem to me they want me to buy a different brand.

We purchased this Maytag Neptune Washer machine in '01. I was thoroughly excited to get it and loved it about the first year. Then the smell started, the mold smell, constantly. I called the small appliance store we purchased it from and he tried to help me many times with different way to get rid of the smell but it always returned. Finally the computer board just died and when it would go one way rotating and then stop to go another it would make a very strange sound so I knew it... (read more)

I bought the Maytag Neptune washer & dryer 6/2006, since then I have had the dryer drum replaced, the ballbearing & belt. My clothes do not get cleaned, very loud, does not spin out clothes, they are soaked. Takes 4 hours to do 1 load of clothes that still smells. There are always codes going off. The service calls have been poor. I spent 3300.00 on the set & pedal stools. I will tell everyone I know not to buy maytag. (read more)

From day one the Neptune has been a problem. Mold & Mildew are present along with the smell. The Control Board & the rubber boot were changed under warranty. The repairs failed to correct the problem.

I don't read many reviews about how poor a rinsing job the Maytag Neptune Washing Machine does, but once you know where to look, it is all too obvious.
