Our 12 1/2 year old washer started dying the other day so I went on line looking for a replacement. After looking in several stores, we wound up in LOWES. The salesman, Mike, was great! I had written down several model #'s and he took me right to them to compare each. As soon as we saw this Maytag, it was love at first sight. The size was perfect and we loved all the features.We did our first super-sized load yesterday, consisting of a double-load of towels, wash cloths, some regular clothes, etc. and a set of sheets. It was amazing! I have never seen clothes come out of a washer so clean and nearly dry. The 2nd load consisted of heavy dark clothes, including jeans and sweat pants, socks, underwear, etc. These also came out beautiful!!!!!I can't understand what some of the other reviewers are complaining about!!!!! This is the best washer we've had so far. I love the fact that it doesn't have an agitator! It's great and I highly recommend it!!!!! It takes a few minutes to get used to, but that's like anything new!

My wife and I purchased this machine about a year ago and are VERY disappointed! We have tried multiple brands of detergent, followed the instructions carefully and it still does not clean clothes properly. It wrings them out so much that even permanent press clothes come out of the dryer wrinkled. Heavily soiled clothes come out looking like they were tie dyed. These photos were taken after being treated with pre-wash and washed and dried in this machine and the associated dryer. I posted a review on this site previously and it was removed. There was no profanity just a true accounting of how poorly this washer performs.

maytag should recall all these washers and offer a refund or offer another washer. i just bought ge/hotpoint. maytag dropped the ball and lost a consumer and I will be telling friends & family maytag is garbage now!!!!Then I cannot even wright a review without maytag wanting a consent. What a joke
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This washer came with our house and I can see why the people left it. I hate this machine and it will probably last forever. I have to use 2 rinses to make sure all the lint or whatever it leaves in the clothes gets out. Sometimes that doesn't happen and I have to rewash the clothes anyway. How does that save water or power? I can't soak anything, which is something I like to do before washing sometimes. If I have to stop it for some reason, it empties the water and starts all over. I am frustrated with it.

Not a reliable Washer
from Fairfax, VA
It is very dissapointing that Mytag makes such an unreliable appliance. Makes a lot of noise and it the Agitator/Spinning just stopped working.
Worse washer I ever had, Just junk!
from Los Angeles , Ca
I bought this in 2011 with a extra warranty that expired 2014 well here it is 2015 and the junk died. Maytag should be ashamed to even make this and sale it because they sure don't stand behind it.

AN EXPENSIVE PIECE OF GARBAGE
from olean ny
I was so excited to finally buy a MAYTAG..I bought this washer Aug of 2013. I wasnt sure of the low water useage , but thought--- try to conserve...I now have DIRTY SMELLY SMELLY clothes..wish the dealer was Honest when he sold me this piece of junk, and I bought local , not a box store.. the dealer AGREED with me that it was junk and said to bad.. would not help me. He didnt even want it for parts.. DO NOT BUY MAYTAG..DOESNT SAY MUCH FOR MADE IN AMERICA!!
DONE light on until open
Easy to use but the "Done" light stays on until someone opens the machine lid.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
awful awful awful!
By deperate for clean clothes!!!
from O'Brien, Fl
We bought this washer back in 2011. I have always trusted Maytag, but this washer has been nothing but problems from the beginning. It was only a few months old when we first had to call the repair man to come fix it. He came out a total of three or four times. Now it won't even come on... I know one thing I am just going to take it to the dump. Try researching to buy a new one. DO NOT BUY THIS WASHER!!!! it will equal nothing but headaches and piles of laundry....
By Steve who needs CLEAN Clothes
from Port Orchard, WA
own the machine since Nov 2011, never really felt the clothes reallly got clean. With the low water feature, don't believe it got enough action to remove any stains or ground in dirt. Purchased a extended warranty from the store we purchased it. Pump die recently, the controls stop working and always had issues with the door lock latch. Maytag had a great reputation with our family no so much now. We could not get the appliance repair company to work on it they stated this model had a bad history. Recommended to buy a new machine, which we did since ours did not work at all.

Leaks underneath and tub seal.
from knoxville tn.
I bought this 2 years ago. it worked fine for about a year and a half, now it leaks underneath and tub seal.
from Toledo, Ohio
When it did work, the noise was so annoyingly LOUD. Now it just sits in the wash mode forever with or witout water. DOES NOT AGITATE, rinse or spin. I believe its the mother board and it's over $200. Wish I could put a - in front of the star. Bottom line...it sucks.
