Maytag Dependability Plus / Metro Factory Service / terrible service!

1 United States Review updated:

My issue as seen below is not only with the failure of the transmission on my 3.5 year old maytag but the lack of service provided by Maytag dependability plus and Metro Factory Service in Dover, NJ. I had to wait for TWO weeks before the Maytag authorized service provider Metro Factory Service could look at the machine and then waited an additional 3.5 weeks for Metro Factory Service to obtain a transmission and come to fix it. When the washer failed mid cycle I bailed out all the water that I could but there is standing water remaining that has mildewed causing my whole house to SMELL! Following is the timeline so far... you tell me if this is quality Maytag service.

July 30... washer failed.

July 1... called Maytag Dependability Plus and opened claim.

July 12... Metro Factory Service person came and spent 5 minutes looking at washer. Gave me a work order that says "found bad transmission and ordered 1 transmission gear" He said they would call in three to five days.
After many calls to Maytag Dependability Plus... Metro Service called and said the soonest they could come was. AUGUST 6!!!

Metro Factory Service arrived August 6 to install new transmission. Repair person looked at washer and said that he thinks that the tech that was sent to diagnose the problem was wrong but since his work order says to install a transmission then that is what he will do. New transmission installed... washer still does not work... it is the motor that is bad. No motor on truck. Has to order one. Metro calls to make next appointment for...

AUGUST 16... it has now been over 5 WEEKS and I still have no washer.

I called Maytag and they were willing to send a new motor overnight to Metro Factory Service but when Maytag called Metro they refused saying that they could not install it until the 16 anyway. I then called Metro to ask for earlier service because it was their misdiagnoses that caused this and they said they would put me on "the list" that I am sure does not exist for warranty people. They also told me that the original tech is no longer with the company and the service man who put the new transmission in told me it was his last day of work for Metro Factory Service.

Now Maytag Dependability Plus has paid for a new transmission that was not necessary and proved by their actions that they have no control over the companies that they contract with. I will now wait until the 16th and hope for the best. I am not optimistic but hopefully this problem will finally be fixed and I will not ever have to speak to Maytag Dependability Plus or Metro Factory Service again. I would rather pay a reliable, honest service person to fix my appliances than ever use Maytag Dependability Plus again. Also as a paying customer I would NEVER consider using METRO FACTORY SERVICE!

In closing I have just one more statement… YOU SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED OF YOUR SERVICE!

I could write a short novel on all the problems i've had with metro factory service, so i won't bore you with the details. The end story is they are horrible, and best i could tell they steal $ from PC richards by coming to perform "service calls" which include a 30 second, "yep, it's broke, but i can't fix w/o parts" so they always have to reschedule 2-3 times until appliance gets fixed. even though you tell them when scheduling appt via pc richard, i need this part please have them come with it, etc; but they always claim they did not receive and they won't do anything that isn't on their pink piece of paper. To call and complain is a total waste of time and does nothing but cause you huge grief and anxiety.
