I purchased a Maytag Performa (Non-Performa) Washing Machine about a year and a half ago. It is the worst purchase ever. It is a piece of junk. Do not buy a Maytag product, they don't work and will continue to break and cost a fortune fixing them. I have heard that Whirlpool bought out Maytag and am now wondering if the Whirlpool brand will also be unfixable expensive junk.
