It's no surprise that Maytag got bought out by Whirlpool-- Maytag's "Neptune" washers such totally unrealiable junk that they destroyed Maytag's reputation for quality in just a few years.

I'd hope that the new "Maytag" products are actually re-badged Whirlpool, as I can't imagine why anyone would want to continue producing real Maytags.

This is no surprise. All household appliances are junk like cars were in the '70s. You're lucky to get 3 years of reliable service out of your new washing machine, no matter what the brand.
Hopefully they'll grow out of this soon.
