Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Gentle on clothes

Chores in Stratford 11/8/2016

The washer and dryer are gentle on clothes, but don't always seem to get the stains out like our last maytag.

The worst appliance purchase I've ever made...

MotherofDragons 11/4/2016

I purchased this washing machine blindly as I've always had Maytag washing machines and have always been happy. I figured this top of the line product would not disappoint. Boy, was I wrong... The only smart thing I did was purchase the extended warranty! I've used it and will continue to use it, I am certain of that! I've had the service person out 5 times now for everything from the rubber liner growing black mold to the hose getting blocked twice to the door latch having to be replaced to the machine not draining properly. And... nothing is an "easy" fix and I always have to wait much too long for parts sometimes going more than a week at a time waiting for parts. Total nightmare with a large family of 6! I will NEVER purchase another maytag product again and warn everyone not to even consider a front load washer.

Fantastic product! My wife and I love the ease of use.

ED40 10/23/2016

Very happy with our purchase. Plenty of options all very straight forward, and very good on water/power consumption. Wish we would have upgraded sooner.

Not worth the money

TheCleaner 10/7/2016

This machine does not get clothes as clean as our old whirlpool. Additionally, without any rhyme or reason it gives us an Error code sometimes in the middle of a cycle. Since it doesn't always do this it's hard to make a repair call.

Febulous for tough stains and More Fabulous for Delicates.

3/5/2016

At first I worried that the large size would be a problem as we are only two people, but Local Store, Hamai Appliance, Susan, told me that this is the perfect Washer for all of my needs. Very Very True. Quiet is very important and it is very steady on the floor. No Washer walking around.

love my new washer!

11/2/2015

We purchased this model washer about a month ago, and it is working perfectly. Love the multiple options on water hardness, soil level, spin cycle, temperature. This is an excellent matchine and I recommend it to all. we replaced only the washer and this unit stacks nicely under our old Maytag drier.
