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.

Maytag today.... not the same as yesterday
By Big 10 Operator
Comments about Maytag Bravos X MVWX500XW White Top Load Washer:
This machine worked fairly well for the first two years. Now, not even 3 years old, the spin cycle went out.Sounds minor right...wrong; doesn't spin because the gear case bearings wore out along with actuator failure. This machine was used about twice per week to wash for two people (not much). An authorized Maytag serviceman checked it and said it would be very,very expensive to repair and suggested buying a new washer. Called Maytag USA and they said sorry to hear about it, but things do wear out. Not really what I wanted to hear. She said there was only 1 year warranty on most parts; however 10 years on the stainless basket, yea right. Like the basket is going to go out. Very disappointed in Maytag and their warranties.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Buffalo NY
The soap will not disolve,it does not clean anything well,it does not rinse completely, socks and jeans always have dirt stains. its loud, the lid locks quickly and statys that way untill turned off, if you dont press ertra rinse it will finish with dry spots, it cost over 500$, worst purchase ever!!
from Eastern Pennsylvania
We have had nothing but problems with this washer. The one that was delivered didn't work, the pump would not come on. They tried to fix it, but it lasted only about 2 days. Then they can back out,tried to fix it again, but we told them to replace it. The second one that was delivered, 3 days later, worked for about 2 weeks and a gear under the drum broke. It was repaired and the washer worked ok for the last year, but always had a problem engaging the spin cycle. Now it don't work at all. The repair people want $100.00 just to look at it, another $100.00 plus parts to repair it, if it is a minor fix. If it's a major fix, it will be $200.00 plus parts. Either way it's going to cost at least 200.00 to fix and I can get a new Whirlpool for about 400.00. This is my last Maytag.
This washer is 5 years old
from Navarre Florida 32566
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!
from Pleasant Valley, NY
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!!
from Cornwall, Ontario
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!!
