Wanted a new washing machine that was a Front Load, using less water AND Energy Star Rated. Expected just a washing machine but instead I received a machine that actually gets the clothes CLEAN. Doing "whites" is REALLY impressive - they actually come out white !!!Rarely use the Fresh & Hold but on a couple of occassions, needed to. Had my doubts but was proven wrong. The clothes were held in the air-tight tub, an internal fan (barely audible) automatically came on and the next day - - the lighter clothes were almost dry and the remaining (heavier clothes) were literally FRESH. Put them in the dryer and they dried in half the time. Too compulsive to use the Fresh & Hold very often, but after seeing the results, am tempted to.LOVE the automatic detergent/bleach/softener dispenser, making it a totally Set & Forget feature...no returning to add this or that.Besides, it style makes for an impressive sight when guests walk through the laundry room - wouldn't go so far as to say it's beautiful, but it certainly is good looking !And the capacity is excellent - even when "full" it STILL gets the clothes clean - and afterall, isn't that the whole idea ?You can get a less expensive washer, but I doubt you will find a better quality washer.

I really wish that I could give a stellar review of this machine, but unfortunately I cannot...have only owned my machine for 6 months & already have had problems. Just after 1 month of ownership, it threw a code in regards to the dispenser...thankfully it not has happened since. And now I have a service tech coming out to find out why the spin cycle has become increasingly louder & louder...I sure hope that it is not a bearing problem, as this machine replaced another brand HE machine that I had to dispose of due to this same problem. I purchased this machine on several recommendations of friends, family & extensive research...I thought that I was making a smart, sound purchase, but now I'm not so sure. Other than these problems, I will have to say that I love the features, size & ease of use of this machine.

Comments about Maytag Performance Series MHWE450WR Crimson Red Front Load Washer:
We have had this machine about 4 years now have had to clean out the drain trap once and luckily had purchased extended warranty because the drain pump went out and had to be replaced. The washing machine gets clothes clean uses very little water, and will wash a king size set of sheets or comforter we had always wanted a front load washing machine because they don't seem to tear up the clothes. When you set it to the highest spin setting it sounds kind of like a jet engine the clothes come out damp dry so your dryer gets them dry pretty fast. I would recommend this to a friend but I would also recommend and extended warranty! PS have had no trouble with mold around the door seal when not in use we leave the door open and mold has not been a problem with this machine as had been reported in some of the earlier models.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

nothing but problems
from menifee, ca
Bought washer with matching dryer in Nov 2009, since then it has been nothing but problems. Had to have the washer fixed multiple times through out the years but this year was the worst. The washer needed a complete overhaul. The repair guy stated that everything needed to be replaced internally (bearings, motor, etc.) It was a three man job and worth $1500. We were still under the extended warranty so we had it done. Unfortunately, nothing will help this machine. It is still very noisy, loud and doesn't clean clothes well. We will not buy another maytag. DO NOT believe the 10-year warranty!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love this washer
from Charlotte, NC

from Tega Cay, SC
Still getting to know this machine and its capabilities. It appears to clean well but haven't noticed a huge improvement over the unit I replaced.
Broke after 3 years
from New York
The bearings broke after just 3 years and very expensive to fix. Maytag wont stand behind their products.
Great features and performance
from Victoria, TX, United States
We bought this to replace our old washer. Why didn't we do it sooner! The washer uses less water and time! And our clothes are clean! We leave the door cracked open after a wash and have not had any odor issues. Great product!

Washes great! Rinses great! Very quiet! Quieter than my LG

The bearing went out twice on our 3 year old Maytag front load washer. This is an extremely expensive fix. We have junked it and bought a new washer (different brand). We thought Maytag was quality, but twice in three years is ridiculous. The cost of the repair was more than the cost of our new washer. We will not be buying Maytag again.
I bought this when my old top load went out. I love it. It's quite uses very little water, fits two comforters for king bed and a twin with no problems, and clothes are sparkling. Clothes take less time to dry. Overall wonderful machine and recommend to anyone
Get your bearings fixed
My washer is less than four years old and the bearings need to be replaced. May want to review your qa/qc program.
