had to save energy rewashing every 3rd load
By L Wilson
Comments about Maytag Performance Series High Efficiency Front Load Washer:
I have been meaning to get online and write a review for months now and finally today have the time while my machine wont spin out again. I bought my MHWE301** grey 2 years ago at one of the big box home improvement stores. For first year only problem was rib broke inside (not covered under warranty) and shredding my clothes. Repair man said it was common.I am 51 years old and this is my 4th big name new washer/dryer set.I hate this washer. In the last year any heavy item will cause it not to spin out. and by any item I mean one beach towel, one flannel lined pair of jeans. I have tried every balancing trick I can think of. Cycle I pick does not matter, every cycle does same - one heavy item - being a front loader = sopping wet clothes, beeping machine. Have to drain and re-spin 3 or 4 times to wring the clothes out. Cheapest washer I have every had that marched across the floor in my first apt was better than this. It is a time and energy waster.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought one of these washers last year to replace a 20-year old Whirlpool model that was on its last legs. This washer has done a great job since I got it. It doesn't need much detergent to get the job done (even for larger loads), and it has lots of cycles & options including sanitary wash for whites and an "allergen" cycle. The "sanitary" setting is nice because I don't like to use bleach (I save the bleach for washing cleaning rags now).Only complaint I really have is that the cycles take much longer than the washer this replaced, but I guess this is the trade-off for higher energy & water efficiency. This is particularly so if you use the sanitary wash setting for your whites. But, one thing that helps is the washer does have a delayed start feature so what I often do is set it up to wash in the early morning hours so that I can just throw the clothes in the dryer right when I wake up.As I said above, the washer has been in service for a year and I've had to make no service calls - so far, so good in the reliability department.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Love the capacity!
I was able to do large loads, cleaned the items great & was quiet. I also like the timer telling me how long I have till it is done

I bought the washer and dryer combination and and very satisfied with both units. the washer is quite and washes very good for a compact.
Very quiet and great performance.
Love the fact it uses just right amount of water depending on load size. have to remember to use just right amount of washing fluid. Had a few sud washes. Could do with better instructions for this.
It's good but it tears all our stocking and upsetting
Enjoy using this washing machine

Like the lower water levels, gets clothes clean, easy to use, requires very little detergent
There's nothing to it that "WOWS" me, but it does everything I need it to do.
