My first Maytag and I am thrilled! I was not sure about the new concept, but the water sensor and no agitator work flawlessly. I like the idea of using only the water needed for the size of the load and this washer seems to spin dry the clothes better than any I've ever had previously...hence, less dryer time!I've even put in my king size bedspread and had no problems with the capacity of this washer.It's a win-win machine for sure!

I'm not please with the Locking feature but understand the purpose as this is a very different design that most washers (water saving feature). But it is very loud and I've found that sometimes my clothes are not consistently cleaned (dry spots on the fabric, fabrics appeared scrunched up more than any washer used in the past, and streaks of residue, not sure if that is lint or what). I would not recommend this model.

Too many breaks
By Self help and Do it yourself-er
Comments about Maytag Centennial MVWC400XW White Top Load Washer:
I've had this washer for over 2 years. PURCHASED NEW. 2 days before my 1 year warranty, it broke and the repair people had to come and fix it. Here it is another 13 months later and it is broke again. The entire unit won't start. As if there is no power, or the start button doesn't work. I'm trying to find information on the internet to repair it myself. I've ran the diagnostics, but can not find anywhere in the manual or online, what the light up buttons mean after the diagnostics are ran. I have a feeling it is a simple switch on the hideous locking mechanism on the washer, which sucks when you find out you dropped a sock or 1 article of clothing. Come on Maytag, this machine does not have a huge agitator, I can't imagine I'd have my arm ripped off if I threw in a last minute pair of socks, bra or article of clothing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

poorly made washer
By Very disappointed
from Gastonia NC
We have had this washer for two and a half years. Within the first year we had to have the water pump replaced and had to have the transmission replaced about six weeks ago. Now when the washer tries to sense the load to sense the amount of water for the load it just makes a humming noise and won't do anything. I am going out today to buy a new washer which won't be a Maytag and I will junk this one after only two and a half years.
Piece of Junk
By Unhappy Camper
No Stars. Minus ZERO.
Absolutely the worst machine I have ever owned!
By Nomore Maytags
from Richardson, TX
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE MAYTAG name and hype! I am MORE than disappointed in this Maytag Product. This machine has never cleaned my clothes thoroughly. It goes out of balance multiple times during the wash cycle. Many, many wash loads are partially dry when the wash cycle has completed. If you prefer clean clothes after washing, then I do not recommend this machine. THE WARRANTY IS USELESS! At the time of purchase I was given a booklet indicating the machine had a 10 year limited parts warranty for the motor, when in reality this is untrue. To compound the poor performance of the product, the Maytag Warranties are pretty much useless! Even if Maytag/Whirlpool honors a limited parts 10 year warranty, it is only for two parts of the motor (not even the motor as a whole) and it does not cover the service fees required to install it. So you just have to know that after year one, if anything goes out ... plan to buy a new machine.

Terrible washing machine
from Houston, Texas
I bought this washer a few years ago. I have replaced many parts on it in that short time. Sometimes it washes properly, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes your clothes "seem" clean, sometimes they don't. The "trouble shooting" section of the manual is terrible.. I am forced to continue to replace parts until it starts (and stays) working properly.FYI, I have had similar results with my Maytag dishwasher.. I have had to replace multiple parts on that as well (mainly the control panel @ $150.00 each time).. I will NEVER NEVER NEVER buy another Maytag product!
My last Maytag
from Lebanon, IN
Well, It almost lasted 4 years. Became noisier by the load, to the point we couldn't bear to be in the house while it was on the spin cycle. Once it became worse than intermittent when attempting to sense at the beginning of the cycle, sometimes taking half an hour to start, replacement became inevitable. Hard to believe a formerly reliable brand couldn't last for 700 loads of laundry.
I would never buy another maytag appliance. The washer does not clean my clothes and there is always lint left on the clothes and because of this I have to sometimes hand rinse my clothes. I have used the clean washer cycle with not avail, have sometimes ran the cycle after each load. This takes a lot of water and electric so as of now I have chosen to use the laundromat until I can purchase a new washer, it will definitely not be a MAYTAG.
Our last May tag lasted over 12 years. This one leaves our clothes lined with lint and does not clean clothes.Very disappointed to have to spend more money to buy a machine that cleans clothes!
Works and cleans great
