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 X HE MVWX600XW White Top Load Washer:
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###!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.
from Madras, Orgeon
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.
from OLIVER, B.C.
EVER SINCE THE FIRST WASH THIS WASHER DOES NOT SPIN. THE ONLY WAY WE CAN GET IT TO WORK IS TO STOP THE CYCLE AND PUT IT ON SEPERATE SPIN CYCLE. THE TECHNICIANS WHO COME TO WORK ON IT ARE UNABLE TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM. WE ARE NOW LOOKING FOR ANOTHER WASHER AND NOT A MAYTAG. IT IS SAD AS WE HAVE ALWAYS HAD MAYTAG PRODUCTS.I CAN SAY IT SUCKS AS A WASHER
I really dislike this washer
By unhappy laundress
Almost every time I wash my sheets or blankets, no matter how I load them or what setting I use, they end up stretched around the washer like a drum with the top never even getting wet or washed so I have to redo them. It also goes out of balance very easily and makes terrible noise.
EASY TO USE

USES LESS WATER

By Ex-Maytag owner
from Atlanta, GA
I had a great Maytag for almost 20 years. So when the time came to relace it, I went with another Maytag, the Bravos. After less than 2 years, it broke. It's apparently the control panel, which will cost approximately $500 to replace. It's not even remotely worth fixing. I will never purchase another Maytag.

need to replace main control board for the second time in 4
from Milwaukee, WI
The machine works well when it's working. We replaced the main control board last July and now we need to replace it again - in a machine that is less than 5 years old. I've contacted Maytag customer service; and they will do nothing to help because the machine is out of warranty. We've owned 2 refrigerators, 1 dishwasher, 2 washer & dryer sets; all Maytag, but they've lost a customer now - because they aren't willing to replace this part, or at least offer a discount. I'm very unhappy with the situation - we replaced the first control board thinking it was a fluke; but having to replace it again in 9 months is unacceptable.
Way too many noises
By Fast Freddie
from Atlanta, GA, United States
Overall satisfied but not this water and energy conserving unit is the best way to go. It does seem to get the clothes clean so that's more important than noises.
WASTE OF MONEY FOR A TOTALLY INFERIOR PRODUCT
from Lexington, KY, United States
MOST DISAPPOINTING PURCHASE, EVER!! WISH I'D NEVER BOUGHT THIS INFERIOR PIECE OF JUNK WHICH COSTS ME MORE TO OPERATE BECAUSE MANY LOADS MUST BE REWASHED IN ORDER TO GET CLEAN
