    Product fine but Rebate Not Honored


    On 9-9-15 my husband and I purchased a Maytag washer and dryer from a home improvement store Colorado. A Maytag rebate between $100-$250 rebate was promised. We never received it. Per the Maytag rebate requirements my husband submitted the rebate form online a few days later, along with a copy of the sales receipt, model & serial numbers, well within the rebate required time frame. Maytag sent us a postcard denying our rebate, stating that they could not read the date of purchase on the receipt we sent. The screenshot we took of the sales receipt sent to Maytag shows a very visible date. My husband resubmitted all of the required information to Maytag via the fax number they gave us on 9-22-15. We didn't hear back this time so thought our rebate was being processed. We were wrong. After the holidays came and went and no rebate was received, my husband called The Maytag Rebate center again.They told him during that phone call that they had not received the information he sent at the end of November. So he re-faxed the same information (receipts with date of purchase, model and serial numbers) again that same day. We didn't hear back from Maytag. We called the number for the Maytag rebate center again in April and were told that our rebate was approved but they weren't sending out rebates until 6-30-16. So we waited, trusting them at their word. (we were later told that there was no record of this conversation!) 6-30-16 came and went. No rebate. We wanted to give Maytag time to honor their word. When nothing was forthcoming we called again on 8-16-16. At that time the customer service person told us Maytag had received the information requested but that it was not received on time because the rebate period was over! We contacted Maytag, the Maytag Rebate Center and Whirlpool and none of them responded in a helpful manner. And the emails we received from them kept changing their story. First we were told they were not able to read the receipt sales date, later that they did not receive our serial numbers, and then later that the rebate was not their responsibility but the store we purchased them through. It was finally the customer service department at The home-improvement store who really listened to us and contacted Maytag, but they got no further than we did. This home improvement store ended up making it as right as they could by giving us a gift card for their store. They didn't have to do this--none of this was the stores' responsibility. So do not trust rebates offered through Maytag.

    Nervous about purchase a few reviews with buyer having issues. But I so love this washer & dryer set. Purchased a high end top loader different brand last year was disappointed so decided to try a front loader again. Many of same features like steam on both washer and dryer but not too many complicated choices. I find the set to be quite it is in a hallway laundry closet. Sometimes so quite I have to peak to make sure it is running. Only negative is the buttons are sensitive if I brush up against them when getting something down from overhead shelves it will activate buttons but the chime lets u know so u can check. Otherwise no complaints.

    Love this dryer!

    Our old dryer was 12 years old and you don't realize the concessions you make until you get a new efficient dryer like this one. Wow! clothes dry in record time. Plenty of options too. Love the light in the dryer. Love the sleek look of the front. Love that it will fluff the clothes until you get to them. Love the steam feature for removing wrinkles and there is plenty of room in this dryer. Reasonably quiet. Best Buy has the best product warranties around. After 40 years of dealing with Sears I am so happy to have switched to Best Buy for all of our appliances.

    Efficient, Easy to use Dryer

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    All our appliances are Maytag. I trust the quality Maytag provides. This dryer model is the replacement of our previous dryer. I like the door is thinner, not so bulky. Efficiently drys and senses when clothes are dry. So if the timer is set longer, it shuts off. The two items I do not like. Each time a button is pressed it makes a beep noise and it is loud. I wished the sound could be turned off. The other item I am not as happy with, my options for drying. The older model I could adjust the different drying options to customize what I needed. Unless the dial is on timed, one cannot customize the option.

    Excellent dryer

    The machine works well. People who complain about this machine not drying their clothing probably haven't read the directions. There are several different setttings for various loads. It's nothing complicated but I recommend reading the instructions to get the most of this machine. I like the fact I can now safely dry microfiber towels and even heat gear products without ruining them. There are even settings for hard to dry items such as blankets. Finally, the steam function works very good to rid of wrinkles.

    Great value but loud

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    I did my research before buying a washer and dryer combo. Maytag makes amazing units that last a long time with minimum maintenance needed. These two units are at a great price considering they have a steam clean and dry option. The only downside to these units and the reason I am giving a lower rating, is there loud. While I would still recommend these it would be for homes for the laundry room is in the basement or in an area that won't disturb the rest of the house due to the noise level.

    Nice machine!

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    Overall great machine. Easy to use, cleans clothing well and fairly quiet. Downside is since it's a front loader I like to keep the door ajar but it only will swing wide open. Can't just leave it ajar. Also, I use Tide pods and need to make sure I place them in back bottom of the machine then place clothes on top. Otherwise the pod has gotten caught in the door and slipped down the seal. Good thing you can stop the machine in the first few minutes and open the door to move the pod

    Fantastic machine

    I’m loving our new washing machine! There are many cycles available, including a quick wash. It is quiet when running and gets our clothes incredibly clean. I really love the extra cycle you can add that circulates air through the machine until you are able to put the load into the dryer! It’s great for days that I’m working away from home.
