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.

Comments about Maytag Centennial MVWC400XW White Top Load Washer:
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....
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.

MIND OF ITS OWN
By wits end
from Auburn, NH
This machine is costantly getting stuck in the wash cycle. I don't know how it conserves water if it is constantly washing the same load over and over! I do not overload it. As a matter of fact even washing one outfit does this...I sometimes just do the spin cycle to get them out of the washer. They were washing for three days one time. I don't beleive that it ever even went into the rinse cycle but I was very frustrated by that time and was running out of things to wear! Three days......Seriously!
What happened to Maytag reliability???
By Hating Maytag
from Eastbay, CA
Our piece of junk Maytag started to throw out a bearing at about 1 1/2 years old, it was so loud we had to shout in the laundry room. When it was running it was so hard on our clothes that that holes appeared after a few washes on t shirts etc. I called the dealer who contacted the local Bay Area Rep Janice who refused to do anything for us. We ran it a few more months, now it completely died, it dropped oil and water, popped a circuit breaker and needs just about everything to fix it. Whirlpool, who now owns 75% of all Washer market sold us an extended warrantee this week for $300 and sent over a tech. The tech said it would cost over $800 to fix it and sent in his report to the warrantee / insurance company who quickly refused to pay and refunded out money. Whirlpool refuses to do anything for us and now I want to boycott Whirlpool and do what I can from keeping you from having the same grief. Not sure what to buy now as I'd like to buy American but Whirlpool can suck it.

I bought this Washer 2 and 1/2 years ago and very dissatisfied with the product. The warranty and service expired at one year. The machine sounds like its going to fall apart especially in the final spin cycle. Service and repair will most likely cost as much as the machine. My twenty plus year old machine worked much better. Unfortunately, I recycled it. Bottom line do not buy this or similar machines from Maytag.
DOES NOT GET CLOTHES CLEAN, TOO LOUD, AND FOREVER HAS PROBLE
from winner sd
I bought this machine 2 years ago and it's the worst washing machine I ever had. It had problems from the beginning and I have been putting up with it because how many people can just go out and buy a new washer. I thought I was buying Maytag quality but I no longer believe that. It don't get our clothes clean. No wonder there's so many sick kids out there. Now it won't wring our clothes out. Get it off the market!
Maytag made a lemon
from Boise, Idaho
I was originally pleased with the low water usage and the large capacity drum. However, I have only owned the machine for two years and the actuator has failed and the mother board has now gone out. Look at all the reviews of people who have owned this machine more than two years. I am not alone.
from Woodville, MS
We bought this washer three years ago and have never been happy with it. It never seemed to clean my clothes the way it should. The cycles were very loud. The capacitor and kit burned out this week, so we decided it would be a good time to buy another machine.
