This is a very common problem with Maytag appliances. My refrigerator came out of a box that was in perfect condition, and yet the door of the refrigerator was dented. The deliver guy told me Maytag knew it was dented, but since the door was installed in the wrong direction, they probably just shipped it that way, knowing the door would have to be switched. I guess it never occurred to them that another delivery would be an inconvenience to me.
My Maytag stove was also damaged. There was a very deep scratch right on the top, and over it was placed a sticker, so I didn't see the damage until the delivery guy left and I took the sticker off. A new top was ordered, but when the technician attempted to install it, the top didn't fit. He kept banging on it until it finallly went on. The stove stopped working as soon as the warranty expired. I will always feel that all the banging caused the stove to suffer a premature death.
I won't even bother you with the story of my Maytag washing machine, but needless to say, Maytag struck out three times, and I will never give them another chance again.
By the way, there are numerous letters complaining to Maytag about damaged appliances coming out of undamaged boxes, so it obviously is a common problem on the part of the company.
