Fantastic machine. Lights blink, plays a tune, whirs, hums, cleans clothes, spins REALLY DRY. What's not to like. You can load this thing with tons of stuff and it takes care of business. Only problem is, now we need a bigger dryer to handle the larger wash load! Highly recommended for the family wash.

First gripe is that the color is different from the "matching dryer".Second gripe: does not rinse out soap, even with extra rinse.Third gripe: I doubt the energy efficiency, may use less water but uses 3X the power--typical cycle takes 1 hr 20 minutes.Fourth gripe: Sits on 1 inch legs which are NOT shown in product photos. Sits higher than dryer.

I wish this thing used more water. I wish it had a pump with a lint basket. I have to use a shop vacuum to extract grass clippings from the bottom of the tub when the load is done. It turns bedspreads into large mushroom tops in the tub. I pre-select maximum number of rinses, oxycleans, softeners, and other added settings to rinse my clothes completely. When you close the lid and push start, there is a delay before the lid locks. If, during that time you add another item you can lift the lid and insert that item before the electric latch engages. If you time it "right" like I did, the plastic lock sticks out. but the switch in the lid prevents the unit from starting. If you don't notice the plastic lock and drop the lid like I did, the PLASTIC lock tab breaks off. Wonderful! that is why I'm on this web site. Other than that, it washes clothes, has a large capacity. I wish I could still get parts for my 28 year old GE that used water to wash clothes and had a filter basket to catch all the pine needles and grass clippings. One thing about using no water. Your cell phone doesn't drown when you accidently leave it in your pants on wash day.

MAYTAG IS BY FAR THE WAY TO GO AND NO OTHER RETAIL OTHER THAN ABT WOULD HAVE TREATED ME SO WELL
New Maytag 850 HE Makes the grade.
from Skokie, IL
We are very happy with the performance of our new Maytag 850 HE top loader. Things are coming out great! Clean, soft and dryer then my previous washer. Read the instructions and you shouldn't have a problem with this machine. Also nice that you can have good performance and energy efficiency too. I'm very please with my purchase and would recommend this washer.

Comments about Maytag Bravos Series MVWB850WL Lunar Silver Top Loading Washer:
Clothes aren't completely submerged into the water, so anything above the water line never gets cleaned, as it never gets pulled under the water. Additionally, it's extremely rough on your clothes!!!!!! I mean extremely...with any of the cycles!!! I absolutely do NOT recommend this machine to anyone!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been a fan of top loaders (traditional kind) and have been reluctant to cave into the front loader craze, which is why I bought an H.E. top loader, but now after having used the new H.E. top loader, I'm greatly disappointed and will begrudgingly trade my new top loader in for a front loader.
Merchant response: Thanks for the feedback. The washer should pull the clothes into the water during the cycle. Abt is an authorized service center and can provide technical support on the products we sell. Please contact us at 847-967-8830 for assistance with the washer.

About Me Heavy Duty User
We are heavy duty users with young kids, We have never, ever had a problem or error message...if you read the instructions and follow them you will be very happy. I'd recommend this washer in a heartbeat. We were also trying to find a washer made in USA or Assembled in USA, we are happy we could find this machine assembled in Michigan/Ohio...It's a great machine, read the manual!

Please Save Your Money
from Salisbury, MD
Please save your money. I would kill to have my 21 year old Maytag washer back. You can't complete a single cycle of laundry without babysitting this product. This product always has an error or the load in off balance. This product is the worst purchase I have made in years.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
