A very smart machine!
If you are looking for a high efficiency machine but don't have room for a front loader, this is the washer for you!

I am on my 4th Maytag washer in 34 yrs of marriage. I have never reviewed a product but, this washer is so bad I had to do this review! We bought this washer in August 2011, being hesitant to buy one without an agitator! When washing sheets I have to pause the cycle to untangle the load underneath a large shaped mushroom! The washer makes loud knocking sounds from unlevel loads. I also have to detangle regular loads of clothing due to the loud knocking noise. I follow the directions, to load the clothes/sheets around the outside but it still happensThe washer has been leaking a large puddle of water with every load. My husband checked the hoses on the back left side of the washer where the water is coming from! Thank god we bought the extended warranty, the repair man is coming tomorrow! Lowe's (where we purchased it) said that if he says it can not be fixed, I can get a different one! My fingers are crossed and you can believe I'm going back to my old fashion, but great with an agitator! Honestly I don't think these type of washers get the clothes all that clean either!!!!!!sorry Maytag I would still buy your products, but definitely not a top or front loader.

WON'T LAST LONG!
Comments about Maytag Bravos MVWB450WQ White Top Loading Washer:
Washes well until the bearings start to wear then its not long until you one day have a mountain of laundry and can't spin out your first load. Then its a major repair or replace. Haven't had mine 3 years, the Neptune series before that the same amount of time. Better buy the warranty and hope it works for ya, repair it yourself or buy from another manufacturer. Forget the crafty commercials on television that are nothing but lies. Read the negative reviews and be smart, realizing that other companies doing the same by buying out each other and making cheaper, less quality products. MT... in my parents day ...WAS a brand you could be proud to own. I'll be looking for competitors that make only products in America, stands behind their product as guaranteed best in quality without the lies and don't require you to buy the warranty because they know their products suck. I'm talking about companies who want to make America great again!...Hmmm where have I heard that before?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The first couple of years it worked great. Now like others it has leaked oil, making very loud noise during the spin cycle, and is often unleveled. I would not recommend this washer. We can get a new one about the same cost of paying someone to fix it.

Appliances aren't what they used to be
from Sacramento, CA
We've had our washing machine since 2011, I assumed when I bought my first brand new washing machine that it would still be working 10 to 15 years later. Now, after 6 years it is in need repair. It is leaking oil and making a terribly loud noise. We will have to pay $300 plus to buy a plus 1 warranty, which will get it fixed and cover it for another year, but for that much we feel like we might as well get a new machine.It cleaned the clothes, and I liked the large capacity but the loads were often unbalanced and it would not be able to finish the cycle.
overall good washer

this is my second Bravos washer. 1st one the bushing between the stainless drum and outer tub failed with 14 days. it was replaced and have had the second one for about 5 years now. It has worked great. the bearing are now failing so the spin cycle is very loud. has been a great machine
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am a "mature" woman and have had many washing machines over my adult life. This is the worst machine I have ever had. It stops the cleaning process every time. It takes me a day to complete one load. I only do very light loads (only a few articles) but it stops many times during the process regardless. I am required to go to laundromat for all heavy items, i.e. towels, jeans, etc.; this is absurd! My last machine, an Amana, was the best machine I ever had; a real workhorse. I will never ever buy a Maytag again.

Love the large tub!!!! It can wash my king comforter with the deep water cycle. I wanted a washer that had no computer board since my old washers all had one and they all gave me problems. This washer has so many options to cycles and water temps. Also love that I can stop to check mid-cycle to check on a load and lift the lid. Couldn't do that with any other washer before!!!!

Worst Washing Machine EVER
By Jen the Angry Housewife
from Pleasanton, CA
Can I give NO STARS? This machine started off great! After two years it started making louder and louder noises during the spin cycle. The noise became louder and louder and now sounds like a jet is taking off in our laundry room during the spin cycle. I called Maytag right when this issue began. Maytag would not cover this repair or replace the product. I called several appliance repair persons and they all told me to just run the washer into the ground - that it would not pay off to repair it - the cost would be too great. Currently, the washer has began to not drain all the way and say "UL" each time. We are waiting for the thing to DIE! We basically live in an airport and are ready for take off each time we do laundry.

I have had this washer around two years and this break down is the second in the last year. First repair was over $300 and this estimate was $375!
