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.

Only lasted 5 years
By Justin in PA
Comments about Maytag Bravos X MVWX500XL Lunar Silver Top Load Washer:
I understood that the Maytag brand was the "luxury" version of Whirlpool. And within Maytag, I thought that this was an above average product. Unfortunately, I am disappointed to say that it lasted only 5 years. I had another brand washer last 10 years and expected this Maytag to at least meet (if not surpass) 10 years. I will be replacing this washer with another brand.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Tired of wrestling with this washer
from San Diego, Ca
I moved into my parents house and they had this washer and they could never get their clothes clean and their clothes kept falling apart. I started washing my own clothes and I've noticed unnecessary wear and tear until I finally was able to find the bulky setting I'm so at least there's enough water to get the clothes kind of clean but then am still I'm trapped at 73 minutes to wash 1 load of clothes.It doesnt handle large loads well at all, i have to be on hand to constantly pause the wash and reposition the load and untangle the clothes so they dont tear themselves in the drain and spin cycles. And it is loud!In my opinion, not a well thought out design.
By Jon the Upset
I bought this washer thinking the large drum could wash a ton of clothes at once AND do so with low water, this saving the environment and me money. Nope. Not. The. Case. Some clothes comes out dry, stains don't come out no matter the detergent, the cycle doesn't finish properly. Biggest waste of a grand...
STAY AWAY from this washer
from Saratoga Springs, NY
I have serious buyers remorse after purchasing this unit about 3 years ago. This washer wrings out the clothes so "efficiently" that even my jeans come out completely wrinkled. I dry all of my sons clothing, but hang dry a lot of my items. I need to iron every single piece because the wrinkles are so bad.Looking for a new one now because of this issue.Also seems to take a long time per cycle.

Disappointed in washer
By Loves the outdoors
from Middle Georgia
The washer has issues with the sensors and we had a repairman out 3 times. Doesn't wash as well as one with agitator. We are going back to washer with agitator.

Failure in design
By Speed Queen
We've owned this washer for 4 years. While it's never "broken", it has major issues with cleaning clothes as well as balancing large loads. My assumption is that it was not tested prior to production as my best description is that the clothes come out in knots. The only agitator is a disc on the bottom with a mildly raised hump.
This is a lousy machine
from Hayward, CA
I bought this a little over three years ago. The CCU Board went out. It will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $500.00 dollars to repair it for costs of parts and labor. The repairman said the board lasts just about three years. Just to get an estimate cost $160.00 because the phones warrant must be done by a Maytag approved repairman. And he couldn't repair when he came because he had to special order the parts. In short, Maytag makes an inferior product and their service is horrible.

You should be ashamed for making this machine. Max 500 loads and it's headed for the snap heap. Last Maytag I'll ever get.
Piece of Junk
By Twice Burned
Had the washer for four years, replaced drum bearing after 2 years—that was a couple hundred bucks—and now there's a drum overcurrent problem with repair estimates upwards of $500. We can buy a better washer for that amount. Whatever happened to washers that got your clothes clean with regular soap and lasted for thirty years? Would strongly advise you to avoid this make and model unless you like throwing your money away.
Great Looking Washer - But That's About It
By Jon the Angry Never Buying Maytag Again
I have purchase this (and a dryer) along with my new home a few years back. It does not wash clothes well at all. Stains stay on. Clothes don't smell fresh. Sometimes when removing the laundry, articles are dry! The cycles don't work, need to manually spin and drain to remove excess water from articles. Contacting Maytag did nothing. Would suggest staying away from this washer.
