“worst appliance ever”

Written on: 14/09/2014 by AlexanderRasmussen274 (1 review written)

I purchased this washer in 2005, it is a pain, the worst for getting clothes clean, tub had to be replaced before 5 years old, not the "mother" board is out. The only way to get any water into the clothes to even mix with the detergent is to run every load on bulky items. This was the most expensive washer I ever purchased and the worst I ever bought. It takes 68 - 70 minutes to run a load, not economical at all… Read Full Review

“One Star is way too many. NEVER buy another Maytag...”

Written on: 28/06/2014 by ArtinHouston (1 review written)

Nothing is good about this Neptune TL machine. Within months the bleach and fabric softener dispensers failed, and have never worked despite cleaning and repairs. The noise from the very first wash cycle has been hideous. Clothes come out tied in knots and wrinkled horribly and even my steam dryer can't get the easiest fabrics even semi wrinkle free. Because clothes become knotted so badly with other pieces T-shirts get stretched to the next larger size. (Not a joke.) Very expensive… Read Full Review

“One thing after another!”

Written on: 21/01/2013

Worked good for about 5 years then clutch went and I replaced it and it tested fine. We installed it upstairs it worked for one wash and then the tub seal went out and then the motor control board went out. We had a hard time getting the washer in service mode to drain. I don't even want to mess with this thing I will get a new washer and have pay sears to haul it away. Piece of Garbage… Read Full Review

“Ran like my Volvo.........GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Written on: 06/08/2012

I bought this unit for my wife in 2005 because this is the one she wanted. After a year the control panel went out and the service tech came and replace the $90 part plus a $65 install fee. It ran great for another 5 years before the same contol board gave out but this time I purchase another part online and replaced it myself. It's now 2012 and still running strong, no odor, noise, nothing. Would purchase another but by the time this one dies it will not be available… Read Full Review

“Worse washer I have ever owned and/or operated!!”

Written on: 06/12/2011 by PeakFitt (1 review written)

I am a disabled Vet. Most folks know it takes months and sometimes years to be approved for and recieve your disability compensation. So when I finally recieved my back dated compensation, I was very happy to pay bills. After I was caught up on everything, I saved enough money to go shopping and buy any washer and dryer I wanted, and sooo desperately needed! My wife and I have 8 children between us, 6 full time. We needed the biggest, most relieable, and most energy efficient washer and dryer… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/03/2011

We paid almost $900.00 for this (then) high rated Neptune TL To Loading Washer 7 years ago. THE WASHER DOES NOT GET CLOTHES CLEAN & TWISTS THEM ALL TOGETHER. Very noicy and last week the dc msg comes on during last spin cycle stopping the water from discharging. Like other reviews, the machine smells like mold and the clothes smell as well. The customer service rep on phone was no help at all. Wish we had spent half the price on a reliable Kenmore. The really great part is customer is left with… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2011

I bought this unit used but less than 1 yr old. It came with dryer also. I did get about 2 1/2 years of use. Although, I did have errors such as -dc, fl, uc, or something of the like. It stopped working when the lid would not lock or unlock. something that simple. Why does it even need to lock. Anyway the part to replace the faulty lock was $60.00. $60.00! For a lock. Well, after I finally found the part. I needed a washer and the laundry mat was getting expensive. So, we bought the part. I'm… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/10/2010

I have the Maytag Neptune FAV6800AWW, it just turned 6 yrs. The last spin cyle quit. The repairman has been working on this machine for 5 weeks trying to determine the problem. Thought it could be the circuit board, not sure because it does seem to work. Ordered a clutch because it rusted out, determined a leak in the drum, ordered both. Came back out to install and the bearings on the newly sent drum are bad, had to reorder. There is black mold between the stainless steel drum and the… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/06/2010

My husband pruchased the Maytag Top Loader FAV6800 as new floor model less than six moths ago. Now I keep getting a UC message which indicate the washer cannot spin. I tried balancing the clothes, unplugging it, restarting it, with no luck. Now we have a tub of soak and wet smelly sheets and cannot get this unit to spin. This washer suck! Prior to this purchase we had a Kenmore washer that lasted for nearly 20 years. It still worked when we got rid of it for this Maytag, now I wish we would… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/04/2010

Well, I thought I was going crazy until I read the other posts. My Neptune TL FAV6800AWW is also about 5 years old. Just quit spinning for some unknown reason yesterday. Now I have a washer loaded with water (took the clothes out of course)and it's really starting to stink. I have had the same issues as others, clothes come out twisted, smelly, washer smells. I was wondering where all that stuff goes, no filter? I even had such a bad leak a couple of years ago, I was able to claim the mold… Read Full Review
