There were no reviews of this product when i purchased it but I have been very pleased with the performance of this machine. The capacity is wonderful since I don't have to do as many loads as with my old machine. I also required the ability to set the requirements for my washing and this machine has the second rinse which is great.

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!

Washer is way too noisy and vibrates too much when spinning
from South Bend, IN
Comments about Maytag Bravos X HE MVWX600XW White Top Load Washer:
Although I have always had and loved Maytag washers, I am sorry I let the salesman talk me into this model without an agitator. It clicks and hums and buzzes before and while it is washing and then when it spins......watch out, it vibrates and jumps all over. The quality of the outside material is very thin and flimsy, not like my old Maytag washers.....they don't make them like they use to! When I wash bulky blankets, throw rugs or pillows it absolutely goes nuts and you have to stand by in case the load becomes imbalanced (which happens several times during a load) then watch out....you thought it made a lot of noise before....it sounds like the whole insides of the machine are coming apart!! I have been very unhappy with this Maytag washer and will think twice before purchasing another Maytag product. This was my third Maytag washer. My first one lasted 20 years and the second one is still going strong. We moved and built a new home, so we bought a Maytag washer & dryer. Not happy with this one at all!!!

Like so far
Have only had about a month, but am very pleased with it.
Easy to use
from Yorktown Heights, NY
So far, so good! I really can't complain about the performance of this machine. I wish I could have gotten an even bigger washer, but the space in my house is limited. :( Some of the cycles are long, so if you're pressed for time, it's better not to put a load of wash in. It's a little noisy, but that doesn't bother me as I'm sure it might bother some people. I love the fact that it's a top loader with NO AGITATOR! I would definitely recommend purchasing this machine.
from albuquerque nm
this machine has been the best machines we have ever bought. even better then our last one which was a bosch top of the line. we would recommend maytag to everyone.. thx for such a great machine..
holds more laundry than my old washer
from mountain top pa
great washer. It is the same size as my old washer, but it holds so much more. I love not having a large agitator in the center.
I like the features this product offers.
It is quite noisy when spinning. The end of cycle signal is not loud enough.
A lot of great qualities
from British Columbia
It's a shame...this washer is great in so many ways, but leaves whitish streaks all over my dark clothes. This leads me to believe that it is leaving residue in all my clothes.
from Central, KS
Noticably lower water use than the more conventional, agitator style. Quiet. Only two things, so far, that have caused any angst. One is not necessarily a negative. You just have to get used to it. The higher spin speed is good, in that it really pulls water out of the clothes and then takes much less time to dry them. My wife, however, says the higher spin speed is hard on some clothes. Her undergarments that contain wire, get bent from the centrifugal force. We are learning to separate out the more delicates and run them on slower spin speeds. The only other item of complaint is the sloping top surfaces on both washer and dryer. It's not as much of a problem on the washer, in that we could never stack/place anything on previous top-loading washers. The dryer, however, won't even allow you to leave a small stack of dryed and folded clothes. They will vibrate off onto the floor. Give us back our flat tops!!! Good products that we would recommend to others.
replacement of appliances
from Rexburg, Idaho
We purchased this item a couple of years ago and then left to work out of the country as "missionaries". When we returned we found that our basement had been flooded by a broken pipe in our laundry room. Our Washer, dryer, freezer (also new) and our water softener were all destroyed by the water shooting up. The insurance told us we could get whatever type and brand we wanted for replacements and I chose exactly what we had before because I REALLY liked what I already had.
