Maytag washer w/ cracked base plate?

<< < (2/2)

BevTech:
I believe this issue was rectified by the manufacture? The early units had extremely thin metal and would fatigue easily with movement and create a crack during spin cycles.

Bailey:
This all started in the race to see who could sell a washer with the biggest tub. Also Maytag tried to increase the spin speed in some models.
The MAV models cracked the base pan. The SAV models cracked the milk stools.

Did they ever develop a program to fix it?  Or did they say "My Bad!  We offer a kit for $200!"?

I don't have a camera handy at the time.  If I go back, I'll try to bring one.

Bailey:
I don't recall any mention of the problems from Maytag. The MAV models evolved from the Magic Chef washers and the SAV models were originally Amana.
