Maytag Repairman

The Maytag Repairman, the guy in the blue uniform who winds up fixing other things because his company's appliances do not break, does not exist. Really, he does not exist. My news program proved it.

The newsperson reported about two individuals who had problems with a microwave and a refrigerator and the trials and tribulations in trying to get them fixed. Both appliances were still under warranty. Everytime they called for a repairperson they got a subcontractor.

They did not get any satisfaction until they called the newsperson. One got a new refridgerator by Whirlpool and a new GE microwave. The microwave was courtesy of Home Depot where the lady originally purchased the first microwave. Whirlpool is the parent company of Maytag.

The newsperson called Whirlpool and asked if where there were Maytag repair people. Company's response... they subcontract repair services. They do not have any repair service people. What a scam!?! That is what I call false advertisment. Whirlpool must have gotten rid of all of them when they absorbed the Maytag brand.
