We had been on the market for a new washer for a while when we visited the Matag site and used the product finder. This helped us narrow down the search and we finally settled on the 6000 model. What an improvement from our old washer that was an LG model. I love the way the clothes are clean and how they spin out the water to the point of almost being dry. What a HUGE incentive for saving electricity! I love the new washer and would recommend it to anyone who is on the market.

Unless this washer is loaded it has major issues with balancing to spin. I have had 2 Neptune washers that I loved and replaced with this washer. I am ready for a nervous breakdown...Read complete review
Unless this washer is loaded it has major issues with balancing to spin. I have had 2 Neptune washers that I loved and replaced with this washer. I am ready for a nervous breakdown by the time it gets done sensing and sometimes it still hasn't spun out when the cycle is finished. Off to the laundromat.

Comments about Maytag Maxima MHW6000 Crimson Front Load Washer:
We bought this 5 years ago. Today was the 2nd time it has needed a Major repair--it just stops working and has different codes that come on. Sometimes unplugging it will fix it, and other times it doesn't. It doesn't even do a great job of cleaning, I have had to rewash clothes many times. And if you want to do a heavy load, forget it--it won't wring out half the time. (yes it has a heavy load cycle) And sadly, unlike my indestructible Neptune, it doesn't have the MaxExtract™ Spin option.Today's estimate was $450 plus the $120 service call.I say no more.By the way, this machine was used for two people, myself and my husband. Should've lasted for ages. I'm extremely disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Never Again Maytag
By Wore Out Repairman
from Foley, AL
Bought this unit in 2012 from Home Depot. Have spent over $500.00 on repairs, (doing it myself.) First: a rip in the door gasket. Second: the MCU went out. 8 month's later the User interface would not work. Found this out when we came home from a 2 week + trip. (Nice Maytag!) Used to be the best units. Now nothing but trouble
Front loader washer
from Chicago IL
Washes cloths GREAT!!! But mold in rubber lip.Need to wash out every time used!!
from New York - Various
Owned this washer for 5 years. Replaced a motor, "computer", water pump, a belt....and it's broken again with a code that customer service "never heard of before". Went with Maytag to replace our Kenmore based on rating and reviews highlighting quality. Unfortunately, we got the opposite.
Washes Clothes, Mostly A Warrant Selling Machine
from San Antonio, TX
It washes clothes. When it runs. Ours just turned 5 and has needed two repairs - one small, one on-going to fix an error preventing it from even functioning.Long story short, it stopped pumping in water and spinning one day. After the usual YouTubing/Googling, I called Maytag thinking they could help. The "technician"'s only tip: unplug it and plug it back on. Some tip. The only thing he did find was that I qualified for some magical, limited-time warranty. I just wanted the thing fixed so I rolled the dice and gave in.Now, just because this warranty covers parts and labor for a year doesn't mean you'll get anything done with any sense of urgency. The process goes like this after you buy the warranty:Maytag schedules a repairman to come outRepairman diagnoses machine, orders parts if needed, submits bill to insuranceInsurance (warranty) company needs 3-5 days to approve the parts/recommendations (no telling what happens if you're denied)Parts ship (can take up to 45 days!) and repairman can come back once he's got themIf it's now fixed, congrats. If not, rinse and repeat (at a friend's house of course)When this machine worked, it worked. Nothing fancy, nothing mind-blowing, nothing keeping me from trying another brand in the future. It. Just. Washes. Clothes. I rated it 2 stars because I used to associate Maytag with quality and expected it to be trouble-free for a lot longer than this. The warranty and service departments don't ask for reviews because they'd owe me stars at this point.Here's hoping I win the sweepstakes and get a free washer. Maybe it'll be a Samsung.

Bought in Sept 2011 - worked fine for 2 years since then I have replaced the same part FIVE times (water inlet switch). Where's the recall??? Switched to an LG top loader and so far love it!
By Disappointed Owner
from Marquette, MI
Bought this machine 3yrs ago to replace my aging maytag top loader. The motor control board blow out to the tune of $220, and that's was doing it myself..can imagine $300-$400 if it was a service call.

I purchased a GE Front load washer/dryer a few years ago and cant explain the disappointment I had with it. JUNK!!Then my MAYTAG arrived and just the machine itself is built better but my clothes have never smelled so clean. THANKS MAYTAG
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
WORST PURCHASE I EVER MADE
By Rog 2016
from Canada ontario
This washer and dryer set are the worst. dryer broke after year and half cost over 300 for repair and washer wouldn't work after 3 years. first problem was e1 f6 got repairman to take a look cleaned hidden filter then it worked for few weeks. same thing happened 2 weeks ago this time it wouldn't work and repairman told me it is comunication problem and there is no way to tell between 2 computer board which is not working. I don't think it should be advertised as a commercial heavy duty made in the US. This is not the quality I was expecting from a reputable company. When Looked on the internet it turned out it is a common problem. I think they should recall it or offer discounted extended warranty.
