Maytag Centennial MVWC400XW White Top Load Washer, Model MVWC400XWH

If you are in the market for a well-built high efficiency washer, then the Maytag MVWC400XW washeris the model for you. This model delivers amazing features, combined with the performance you have come to expect from the Maytag brand. This top loading washer is built with better parts than other washers, so it performs better and lasts longer.

If you currently use an older washer, you might consider upgrading to a high-efficiency washer for the added advantages. The low-water washing cycle uses high-efficiency detergents to give your clothes a better wash than traditional washers, all while using 70% less water and energy. This savings is not only good for the environment, but the money it saves makes the washer pay for itself in only four years.

The IntelliClean™ Impeller is a uniquely designed wash basket with fins at the bottom that move clothes around during the wash cycle more effectively and with less roughness than the agitators in other clothes washers. This feature is only available on high-efficiency washing machines. The wash basket is also designed to be smooth and sturdy so that it will not snag on the fabric of any of your clothes. A powerful motor and a balanced suspension system complete the set of top-of-the line features on the inside of this top loading washer.

All around, the MVWC400XW is a fine washing machine. If you are in the market for a new clothes washer, whether you just want to upgrade or your old one broke, this is seriously one washer to consider. It sounds great in detail, and once you actually try out the MVWC400XW, you will love it even more.

Key Features:

  • Low Water Wash with EcoConserve
    Use less water and get better cleaning performance through concentrated wash action. Low water wash technology enables the detergent to penetrate better and pretreat soils with a concentrated mix.
  • ENERGY STAR® Qualified
  • 1/3 HP PSC Motor
    Permanent split capacitor motor that runs at a higher power factor thus giving better performance. It also delivers lower heat build-up, lower operating costs and a smoother, quieter operation.

Features:

  • 800 RPM Spin Speed
    A spin speed of up to 800 RPM at the end of the wash cycle removes more moisture from the load, resulting in faster drying.
  • 3.6 cu. ft. Capacity
  • Smooth Balance™ Suspension System
    Thanks to Maytag® Commercial Technology, this feature reduces vibration and noise in washers to help keep loads balanced while spinning at top speed. In dryers, drum rollers work with drum glides to reduce vibration.
  • IntelliClean™ Impeller
    Available in high efficiency top load washers, this feature is a wash plate with fins at the bottom of the wash basket. The wash plate continuously moves clothes through the water to clean more gently than a traditional agitator, and takes up less space to maximize capacity.
  • CEE Tier III Qualified
    Based on the Consortium for Energy Efficiency qualified product listings--with Tier III being the most efficient. This model features advanced water & energy savings and may qualify for rebates from local utility companies.
  • Deep Clean Option
    Deep Clean uses a additional cleaning action and a deep rinse to ensure load is clean the first time.
  • IntelliFill™ Automatic Water Level Sensor
    The IntelliFill™ sensor regulates the amount of water being used, making automatic adjustments based on the size of the load and type of fabric. By using less water, you'll save money and natural resources while still delivering improved cleaning performance.

Choosing the Right Detergent

  • Use only High Efficiency detergents. The package will be marked “HE” or “High Efficiency.” Low-water washing creates excessive sudsing with a regular non-HE detergent. Using regular detergent will likely result in longer cycle times and reduced rinsing performance. It may also result in component failures and noticeable mold or mildew. HE detergents are made to produce the right amount of suds for the best performance. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to determine the amount of detergent to use.

My first Maytag and I am thrilled! I was not sure about the new concept, but the water sensor and no agitator work flawlessly. I like the idea of using only the water needed for the size of the load and this washer seems to spin dry the clothes better than any I've ever had previously...hence, less dryer time!
I've even put in my king size bedspread and had no problems with the capacity of this washer.
It's a win-win machine for sure!

I'm not please with the Locking feature but understand the purpose as this is a very different design that most washers (water saving feature). But it is very loud and I've found that sometimes my clothes are not consistently cleaned (dry spots on the fabric, fabrics appeared scrunched up more than any washer used in the past, and streaks of residue, not sure if that is lint or what). I would not recommend this model.

Too many breaks

By 

from STL

Comments about Maytag Centennial White Top Load Washer:

I've had this washer for over 2 years. PURCHASED NEW. 2 days before my 1 year warranty, it broke and the repair people had to come and fix it. Here it is another 13 months later and it is broke again. The entire unit won't start. As if there is no power, or the start button doesn't work. I'm trying to find information on the internet to repair it myself. I've ran the diagnostics, but can not find anywhere in the manual or online, what the light up buttons mean after the diagnostics are ran. I have a feeling it is a simple switch on the hideous locking mechanism on the washer, which sucks when you find out you dropped a sock or 1 article of clothing. Come on Maytag, this machine does not have a huge agitator, I can't imagine I'd have my arm ripped off if I threw in a last minute pair of socks, bra or article of clothing.

poorly made washer

By 

from Gastonia NC

Comments about Maytag Centennial White Top Load Washer:

We have had this washer for two and a half years. Within the first year we had to have the water pump replaced and had to have the transmission replaced about six weeks ago. Now when the washer tries to sense the load to sense the amount of water for the load it just makes a humming noise and won't do anything. I am going out today to buy a new washer which won't be a Maytag and I will junk this one after only two and a half years.

Absolutely the worst machine I have ever owned!

By 

from Richardson, TX

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Centennial White Top Load Washer:

DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE MAYTAG name and hype! I am MORE than disappointed in this Maytag Product. This machine has never cleaned my clothes thoroughly. It goes out of balance multiple times during the wash cycle. Many, many wash loads are partially dry when the wash cycle has completed. If you prefer clean clothes after washing, then I do not recommend this machine.
THE WARRANTY IS USELESS! At the time of purchase I was given a booklet indicating the machine had a 10 year limited parts warranty for the motor, when in reality this is untrue. To compound the poor performance of the product, the Maytag Warranties are pretty much useless! Even if Maytag/Whirlpool honors a limited parts 10 year warranty, it is only for two parts of the motor (not even the motor as a whole) and it does not cover the service fees required to install it. So you just have to know that after year one, if anything goes out ... plan to buy a new machine.

Terrible washing machine

By 

from Houston, Texas

Comments about Maytag Centennial White Top Load Washer:

I bought this washer a few years ago. I have replaced many parts on it in that short time. Sometimes it washes properly, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes your clothes "seem" clean, sometimes they don't. The "trouble shooting" section of the manual is terrible.. I am forced to continue to replace parts until it starts (and stays) working properly.

FYI, I have had similar results with my Maytag dishwasher.. I have had to replace multiple parts on that as well (mainly the control panel @ $150.00 each time).. I will NEVER NEVER NEVER buy another Maytag product!

My last Maytag

By 

from Lebanon, IN

Comments about Maytag Centennial White Top Load Washer:

Well, It almost lasted 4 years. Became noisier by the load, to the point we couldn't bear to be in the house while it was on the spin cycle. Once it became worse than intermittent when attempting to sense at the beginning of the cycle, sometimes taking half an hour to start, replacement became inevitable. Hard to believe a formerly reliable brand couldn't last for 700 loads of laundry.

Highly Disappointed!

By 

from 28120

Comments about Maytag Centennial White Top Load Washer:

I would never buy another maytag appliance. The washer does not clean my clothes and there is always lint left on the clothes and because of this I have to sometimes hand rinse my clothes. I have used the clean washer cycle with not avail, have sometimes ran the cycle after each load. This takes a lot of water and electric so as of now I have chosen to use the laundromat until I can purchase a new washer, it will definitely not be a MAYTAG.

Our last May tag lasted over 12 years. This one leaves our clothes lined with lint and does not clean clothes.
