This is a really good, solid system. It can perform a range of duties from the everyday family that cleans consistently, or a weekend college kid who crams as many clothes as he or she can fit for the days or weeks ahead. Its rare, in my opinion, to find a reasonably priced piece of equipment that can handle the wide spectrum of duties that this unit can! To be honest, I am pleasantly surprised. I have had this unit now for 15 months. It has been involved in a move (setup, takedown, move, then setup again). It has been stacked as well as current configuration, side by side, with its amazing dryer partner. So, here is what I've observed. I believe the unit performs better with "The More the Merrier" approach. The tighter one gets the clothes packed in, the more efficient it becomes, both with water and additives (detergent, oxi, and softener). The unit tends to be slightly more aggressive (action) than an auger based system, which to an extent, makes sense because its own action makes the clothes do their rolly polly cleaning thing. rather than a central mechanism to spin around. From time to time I've had my clothes wound together after a cycle is complete. The clothes weren't damaged and it wasn't difficult to unwind them and it probably wouldn't have happened had I put more clothes in before starting the cycle. Therefore, I blame myself and not the unit when it happens. Nonetheless, the wound clothes still were very clean, so the washer was still able to get the job done! Occasionally, I hear the unit hopping (slightly off balance) but it doesn't happen enough for me to realign the feet (which is quite easy for anyone to do by themselves!). The noise is what everyone tends to focus their love or hate when it comes to front loading washers, to me, having this unit in the room next to where I sleep doesn't bother me with anything I do, including sleeping as it runs. Just a slight whrrrr noise that can easily be drowned out by a fan on low. The features are everything I could ever want in a washer. I use the steam cycles about 40% of the time. It wasn't my main reason for buying this unit but I find myself using it more than I would have ever imagined. For instance, my father had a tee-shirt he was wearing a few weeks ago. He complained it had a slight musty smell from being wet so he tried washing it multiple times with a fairly new (other branded) machine. As he was about to throw the shirt away after his failed attempts. I asked if I could bring it home and see what I could do. One cycle, BOOM... GONE... No smell. Perfect shirt. Just from this one circumstance, proves what kind of product this is and what it can do. Capacity is the only thing that I'd tend to have a gripe about. 4.3 cubic feet is able to handle just about every situation, when I encounter the occasional mount of clothes I do wish I could make the rest fit. It would be nice to have a bit more space to fit a quilt with some clothes perhaps but then again with the way it works and how quickly it cleans, its not that big of a deal. Cycles take from 23 minutes to 2 hours depending on what one's needs are. I usually have a 33 to 40 minute cycle on the wash. I'd say if your family was bigger than four people, I'd recommend a slightly bigger unit. Other than that, It looks great, its overly fancy and doesn't need to be polished and cleaned all the time. Just remember to keep the door ajar after washing so mold doesn't creep into the seals, which for me has never happened and I've never needed to clean it yet! It is VERY efficient and I've never looked back! Hope this helps! You can't go wrong with this unit no matter who you are and how messy your life is!

Washer was very quiet for three months before tub bearing failed. Despite using low spin speeds, the unit just became louder and louder. Tub with bearing assembly was replaced under warranty. Although I have had good luck with other Maytag/Whirlpool products, I do not have confidence that this repair will be a long term fix unless the bearing and seal is better engineered.

It does a really good job cleaning my clothes. It is also very quiet. Just wish it would be a little higher off the ground.
from NY 11561
Good performance all around except requires use of soak feature at times due to small amount of water used in basic wash cycles.
The washer is efficient, appealing and is Eco friendly!
I truly please with all its features ;energy efficient, size, technology and appeal.

Jaw dropping cleaning performance
from Boca Raton, FL
This is my second Maytag washer. I thought my first one was great, but this blows it out of the water! The capacity is truly great. The steam feature along with the Oxi treat cycle make my whites look sparkling and brand new. People always comment on how stylish they are. I'm in a smaller home and I can't hear the washer in the next room. I couldn't ask for more. I'm a Maytag customer for life.
Very quiet, reliable and easy to use.
from Toronto, Ont
We wanted a good quality front load washer with a good size drum, and this washer fit the bill perfectly. Loading and unloading the washer is much easier than our old top load type. It uses less water and is much quieter. The controls are easy to understand and use, and there is a safety to avoid the chance of opening the dorr before the water has been drained. It is necessary to switch detergents to the HE type to avoid oversudsing. Excellent buy for us.
Great washer, so easy to use, quiet, and does great job.
