Bob- I have enjoyed you for years on This Old House. I have read Terms of Use as well as I can. I am hoping "truth" is a suitable use for this BB. The truth is - I am 60 and retired. I purchased a Maytag Washer, Dryer, Refrigerator and Oven/Radiant Range for the following reasons: The Maytag label and the Rears and Soebuck good name. Thus far, only the washer has broken down. It is just 2 years old (25 months) and "This Old Performa" is probably never gonna "Performa" again. Bob- I paid Rears and Soebuck over $800 for the W/D pair. I paid the 1st repairman $75. only to find out that he was not a Maytag certfied repairman. I paid the 2nd repairman who was a certifed Maytag repairman and sent to me by Rears and Soebuck $70. to find out that thie "Performa" was not worth repairing. What do you think of that Bob? Maytag has been absolutely disrespectuful. Their Customer Solutions Experts were "non-responsive". We (you and I) are both big boys Bob so we both know that the 50 or so washing I got out of "This Old Performa" is probably all I am gonna get. But we also know that big guys don't go down without a fight and I have posted the absolute truth on your bulletin board and it is just the first step. There is a growing class action lawsuit against Maytag and I plan to join it and advertise it. I will also accept your help or help from anyone who reads this post. ""

Bob- I almost forgot. Here is the name of the NewJersey law firm handling the Maytag class-action suit.

Sherman, Silverstein, Kohl, Rose & Podolsky.

Check their website for updates. "Right now" the class action is reference only the "Neptune" washers. My bet is that the (Non)Performa is right behind.

Thank you for your help.
