We purchased this washer in Aug, 2011and have no regrets. It cleans very well, better than our old agetator washer. It is very easy to load, the options you can select from is far superior to most all washers in this price range. Looked at a front loader, and this made more sense as I wasn't stooping all the time to unload and I didn' t have to buy a $200+ pedistal. I've washed large loads such as our comforter, and smaller loads like a single shirt and they both came out great. Less time to dry. You have to read the manual. This is different than what you're used to.

This washer is, without a doubt, the WORST purchase I've ever made. AWFUL! Unless you wash everything on "Bulky", your clothes don't get clean. I've had clothes come out of the washer with dirt still on them! That means, to me, that water didn't even touch them since the dirt and clothes were not even damp. But, washing everything on Bulky has added about 40% to my monthly water bill. Also, if you don't balance everything JUST RIGHT, the washer will just shut off. It's loud and, even on bulky, doesn't do HALF the job that my 25 year old "other brand" washer did. I wish I could have brought that with us when we moved. If I could give this ZERO stars, I definitely would have. I dread doing laundry now, but I'm stuck with it since we paid a fortune for it! So, like the title says, if you're thinking about possibly purchasing this piece of junk, do yourself a favor and DON'T!

Comments about Maytag Bravos HE White Top Load Washer:
I bought this washer 3 years ago and like many of the reviews I have recently read online (started at the 3 years mark) the washer got louder during the spin cycle and the stopped working. Its not as though this was a "Cheap" purchase. And of course the manufacturer warranty is limited - however OBVIOUSLY the manufacturer is aware that this is an ongoing issue is as I easily googled the issue and found tons of similar complaints. Im currently filing complaints with the BBB and CFPB as I do not think it is acceptable to have to purchase a new washer after only 3 years, - buyer beware!!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We bought this washer 4 years ago. Just recently it stopped spinning and draining the water. Everything is left soaking wet in there. Does not matter what wash cycle we use, IT WILL NOT DRAIN ANYMORE. Time for a new washer and I do believe we will steer clear from Maytag from now on.
Doesn't get clothes clean
By Dave R.
from Seattle, WA
We bought this a few years ago and are finally replacing it with a front-loading machine after much frustration. The glass lid lets us see exactly what's going on. We call it swishy-swishy. The clothes never or rarely actually turn over in the wash so the clothes on top are always on top and never get washed. The clothes on the bottom get ground to death by the bottom plate. It's particularly bad for loads like jeans, the ones on top may not even get wet! We've tried everything from adding more water or even washing everything on bulky load setting with marginally better results. The only thing that seems to wash half normally on a "Normal" wash setting are light weight materials like socks and underwear. We called Maytag thinking that the electronic load sensor may be defective but they offered no help. They said that it was designed to work that way! The amount of water this machine uses may be fine for a front load machine but it just does not work with a top loader.

My mom bought this washer less than 3 years ago, and it already needs new bearings. The repairmam said it would cost over $500. He said everyone who owns this machine has the same problem. Worthless!
Wouldn't buy again

WORST WASHER EVER
By the cleaning lady
Problems with this washer from day one. After 4 years of having to respin every heavy load, it now has stopped spinning entirely. Time for a new machine....and never a Maytag again!!

Bought this in 2011 with extended warranty It is junk The motor died and the gear case. Motor is under some warranty so they still haven't resoved problem. With free motor the repair will be more than what the machine cost new. Bee going on since 1/15/2016. Third eval for repairs 2/18/2016. A month is too long###!
Horrible, wish I never bought it
from Cincinnati, OH
Model MVWX700XL2 - about 16 months old. Won't cycle past the wash portion. Have to unplug machine, let sit for 2-3 min, plug back in just to advance to 'rinse and spin', again unplug 2-3 min, plug back in to advance to 'drain and spin'. This must be done EVERY wash cycle. I ran diagnostics, found codes: F9/F0 and E1/E0. I called Maytag's customer service and was told they don't have the codes in their system and have no idea what's wrong with it - recommended a "Repair + 1" service of $331.65 which would guarantee to fix the problem, or a $69.99 service fee just to diagnose. Not happy at all with the purchase. If you are considering buying, DO NOT. This appliance is garbage and customer service should at least be able to supply error code definition.

Both the washer and dryer broke down right after the warranty expired. One afrer three years and one after 4. The washer only works if you set it for a bulky load. Otherwise, the clothes do not even get wet sometimes. I've put loads in and they came out just as dirty. Save your money and buy a better brand.
