we have had this washer 6 years this week the lip came off the hinge plate because it is glued to the glass lid when calling customer service they said sorry out of warranty the service tech that came to the house said he had never seen this before must likely quality issue Maytag will not stand behind the poor design and stated lid is $300 and it is out of stock? maybe this is not an one time issue all i would think Maytag-Whirlpool should do is replace the lid that is the right thing to do i paid the service call and there was nothing he could do
