Unit is a 7000 Model. My wife is very short so wanted a front end loader. Also, all of our past washers, have suffered from paint erosion of the drum, usually after yr 8 of age, so we wanted a stainless steel drum, which this has. Finally, I preferred a USA product, designed and produced here, but yet of good quality, and I have always been interested in the Maytag dependabilty representations. The salesman seemed to know the products strong points, plus the warranty, on parts that we have had go bad in the past on previous brands, were were longer (10 years). I am totally taken with this product...it is just beautiful, simple but easy to use and attractive, if you can say that about a washer; I am a 66 yoa white male for the demographics. My wife loves it as well. It stands on a pedastel unit, which we bought, Maytag mfg'd, and it is very handy to hold supplies. Uncluttered the wash room considerably. The capacity is excellent, and the controls easy to use. I could have purchased the higher end 9000 series, which had more cycles, but my wife felt we would not use all of them; also the 7000 has all the upgrade features, so the 9000 is more cycles only and a different controls interface. Also, on a minor point, I had seen the controls of the 9000, as installed on a Whirlpool, and they were not well worked out, plus the design, as installed, did not look 'finished'. I like the Fresh Hold setting which does not allow mold/mildew occur, as it blows air #ambient temp I believe# over the load continuously, and rotates the load periodically for up to 16 hours. This is handy and used! Has sanitze cycle with steam, NFS stds. You will be surprised how little water is used, plus is the HE type detergent, low sudsing, etc. Very smooth with very little vibration. We used to keep washer room door closed and could hear lots of noise #previous washer 11 yr old top load expensive unit#, whereas even with the room door open, this cannot be heard running; very quiet. With heavy loads, at high spin speed, you can feel a little vibration with your hand on the top of the washer, but yet no vibration finds its way to the floor. A light can be turned on to illuminate the interior, any time during the cycles- nice touch. The controls are smooth in operation and the displays reasonable. If you want super pretty controls with a display like and iPod, then that is the 9000. So I intend for this to be my last washer purchase for a long time, and for now, we are off to a very good start!

I am really disappointed that this machine doesn't have a quick wash feature. It is such a basic feature, yet they purposefully chose to leave it off when all of the competitor's comparable machines that we looked at, had it. We can use the overnight wash/dry for a shortened wash time, but it is only designed for a very small load. I also have had major issues with the inability to wash a small heavier load like a small load of towels, cotton rug or blanket without having spin issues.Since it doesn't spin out the dirty water, I can only assume that the towels aren't clean either. I have never heard of a machine that you had to run a full load of towels or nothing. It doesn't give an unbalanced load err, but (even though it spins around) it just doesn't ring them out. They end up absolutely soaking, dripping wet, even after being ran on an extra 'spin/drain' cycle after the normal cycle. My 10 year old Duets washed these same loads every week with zero problems so I don't understand why a current premium set shouldn't be able to handle such a basic load. It does a decent job with a full load of regular clothes. It doesn't seem to do any better or worse than my old Duet set. About the same noise/vibration level , maybe a bit quieter, but not a remarkable difference. I haven't had a use for the steam cycle yet, so can't comment on that. Machine size and opening size seem appropriate. Capacity seems good/average for front loaders. Buttons/settings make sense but when stacked you can't see the lights to tell you which setting the dial is on. The light is on the machine, not the dial, so the thick dial blocks the view of the lights. I will have to make hand made marks on the dial so I can tell which option it is on (I am 5'8" so it isn't a height issue). The panel lights and interior lights are nice when taking things out of the machine, but don't turn off automatically when it is not in use. I have to make sure to manually turn off the machine after use, which seems odd to me. If I am taking items out of the machine and carrying them to the next room in my hands, I have to go back to the laundry room to turn it off. Quality seems ok, but it is only a couple of weeks old so I can't really comment.

Have only used three months, but works as expected.

Comments about Maytag Maxima White Front Load Washer:
Spin dry was hard to work out since have to choose the 'rinse and spin' option then push the button for the rinse to turn that part off. Works fine and big drum and like the fact that the door does not swing shut so the washer can dry out.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Washing day... a chore no more!
from Washington, DC
My Maytag Maxima Washer is the quietest machine that I have ever owned. It's sleek design and modern appearance makes it more like a piece of furniture instead of an appliance. Stacking the dryer on top has saved so much space in our laundry room. This extra large drum accommodates various size and type of loads, so no more trips to a laundromat to clean large comfortable and blankets. So, with a machine that cleans so well, saves space and time and looks great, It's really a MAXIMUM...Maxima. I love it!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
very happy with this machine would buy another if needed.
from northern new york
This machine does an amazing job removing stains, even old stains. Able to wash my king size bedding without damaging the fabric. Rinses the clothes very well , and washes them thoroughly with less water than my older machine. It is a very quiet machine, I was very amazed by each wash cycle being so quiet.
Buy Maytag its overall great.
from Plymouth, WI
Always buy the better product, Maytag as it will last longer. It cleans clothes so much better and whiter. Plus has so much more in features to adapt to the correct wash load. It also washes pickles and carrots for canning.
Lots of options but a few key ones not on it.
I do love the machine, however, I feel it really is too loud. I have even had family members that have been visiting mention how loud it is. Also, no option for just a rinse or second rinse cycle. I try to always put the right amount of detergent in, but occasionally, a load will still have a few suds so I would have liked the option to just rinse again instead of doing a whole new cycle! Also, the bedding cycle seems to tangle the sheets.
This washer has great features.
from Green Bay, wi
This washer uses very little soap and weighs the wash to limit the amount of water needed. Their are many options for temperature, but all options aren't available with all settings.
This washer is awesome. Well built. After a year of use my wife and I still mention to each other how pleased we are with it. The fresh hold function is something we wouldn't live with out again. If this washer died today we'd order the same one tomorrow.
from Winston-Salem, NC
Great selection of wash cycles. Does a great job of cleaning all types of clothing.
Very Good as Promised
from Appleton, WI
