I was concerned about getting a new Maytag. My previous machine was an apartment sized one that was only 6 years old and we had had multiple problems with it. But I am very happy with my new machine and have had no serious problems thus far. The only complaint I have is that small items seem to get caught around the door. My new team uses less power than my previous set which was an apartment sized set and was purchased thinking it was save on water & hydro. I was pleasantly surprised to find the larger machines actually are giving us noticable power savings.

I bought this washing machine in 2012 and have had 3 repairs. One was through Maytag warranty and the other 2 have been with the extended warranty. They will not honor the lemon law since the first time it was repaired was through the Maytag warranty. This machines door seal cracks and starts loosening the rubber all over the clothes. If it doesn't lose the rubber it literally chews up your clothes, towels, lingerie, and comforters. When you contact Maytag all they can say is sorry and we apologize but there is nothing they can do since there is extended warranty. Every time I wash clothes I always clean the glass door on the inside and inside the gasket rubber door seal. It also smells really bad if you don't air it out after a couple of washes. If I can give it zero stars I would! BEWARE DO NOT BUY! Maytag you have my information CONTACT ME!

              The front load Maytag washer does an excellent job cleaning clothes. The cycle controls are easy to use and work as designed. The only issue is some small articles of clothes sometines get stuck in the rubber in the door. I solved this issue by putting small articles in the back of the washer (away form the door).

                  The washing machine smells. We live in an area where the water smells like sulphur anyway so it is especially not good in this front loader.

                  The cycles seem extremely long as well.

                      My Maytag front load washer is nothing short of amazing. I love how many clothes I can fit. I love that I don't have to take my bedding to the nearest laundromat because my comforter wouldn't fit in my previous washers. Now I can wash anything washable in my home without leaving my home!!

                                I like the machine, except for the length of time it takes to run a load through on the cold wash cycle, which is 70 minutes. I find that is too long. This machine develops a nasty smell after only a little more than a month, upon which I must use special chemicals to clean it, and I always leave the door open. My old machine didn't develop this odor until years later. Otherwise I am very happy with the washing machine.
