I absolutely love this washing machine. I have owned it now for 6 weeks and have had no problems. My clothes come out clean and fresh smelling with no residue whatsoever. I like the fact that it adjusts water level based on load size so that water isn't wasted. The fabric softener seems to work better because my clothes come out much softer than my old machine. There will be some wrinkling due to the spin cycle being faster than conventional washers. You can use the wrinkle control or hand wash cycles to decrease the wrinkling. My only knock on this machine would be that the entire wash time is about and hour. That doesn't bother me but some people may think that's too long. I would definitely recommend this washing machine.

I have had this washer for 6 months and I hate it! I wouldn't give It any stars if I didn't have to. It may be water efficient and probably the reason why your clothes are never clean. I've had to wash my clothes more than once and that's still not enough to get your clothes clean! Without the agitator it just doesn't do the job. I've always had a Maytag washer/dryer and was never disappointed until now.

This washer is 5 years old

Comments about Maytag Bravos X MVWX500XW White Top Load Washer:
This washer is five years old, I am a 65 year old single woman and yesterday ( according to a service tech ) the transmission has gone out. I do maybe two small loads per week. Now it may cost $ 600.00 to repair? Seriously ?I'll go buy a new washer for that amount!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I actually purchased this machine in June 2013 and I finally registered it, LOL. I love the fact that it is very water efficient and has so many optional settings. Just yesterday, I did have to get it repaired though. It was making squealing/grinding noises while running. The repairmen came out and were able to fix it in 45 minutes AND, it was all covered under my warranty WOO HOO!!

I bought this washer 2 1/2 years ago and I have already had to buy a new washer to replace it. Needless to say I'm not very happy with Maytag.

Have Had for 3 Years - Does not clean clothes!!
from Kennesaw, GA
I hate this machine. I have twokids (preteen and teen)who are into sports and dirt, and a husband who is too, and I CANNOT get clothes clean. The dirt and smelliness of the clothes doesn't get washed away. I've used all types of detergents and additives (borax, vinegar, oxy, baking soda, clorox 2 ~desperate for clean clothes!!~, clean the machine regularly with Affresh, and still end up rewashing clothes,or soaking some stinky clothes in vinegar water in a bucket in the sink before washing, even after a wash to rewash!! No aggitation or enough water to get the clothes clean! No Soak Option either! DO NOT BUY!!!!!
Does not get clothes clean!
I bought my washer and dryer less than a year ago and am ready to give the washer away. It does not get clothes clean unless I add 5 or more gallons of water to the load.
from Marble Falls, Tx 78654
We have had this washer for abour 2 years. Recently we have had a problem with the washer over-filling and not going to the spin cycle. It finally wouldn't do anything.We have had numerous service calls, the last resulting in a computer board replacement. Problem still persists. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Do not waste your $$$. This is the worse washing machine.
By Sick of Maytag
from Faytteville, GA
I have this machine for 4 years and I hate it. This machine does not wash dirty clothes including sheets and towels. When washing queen size sheets you can see some parts unwashed forcing you to throw the load back in the washer for a second wash. I have to pre-tread all white socks and pants so the dirty parts can be cleaned. I use a high quality detergent and I never experience this result before until I switched to the BRAVO ECOSERVE washer. When washing large pieces is easy spotting pieces that were untouched by the water. The clothes come out with streaks of dirt on it. I am so disappointed with this machine. I am embarrassed to even donate this piece of garbage to someone in need of a washer machine. SHAME ON YOU MAYTAG!!

maytag bravos x
I have had the Bravos X for 3 years and it is the absolutely worst machine i have ever had and I am 69 years old. It has no cleaning power and you would be just as well to fill a bucket with water and dunk your clothes up and down. I can't tell you how inefficient this machine is and how much I dislike it.

I bought this to replace a order unit and with a family of boys and sports activities it has worked great getting the clothes clean.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Worst Ever model
from Washington, United States
Previously owned Maytag washer over 25 years. Bought on 4/10/13 Maytag MVW500XW2 serial #C30430106. It is trash. Lasted 18 months for two person household. It spins with the sound of a freight train when it does spin. The sensors have to be manipulated to make it spin.
