This machine does not live up to the expectations that come with the Maytag nameplate. This was a replacement for a previous frontloader that was also from Abt so I had high expectations.

1. The machine has a very long cycle.
2. The machine struggles to spin / extract a load of any size.
3. It goes out of balance very easily and is very sensitive to even the slightest variation in load balance.
4. Between the wash and rinse cycles and between the rinse cycles the machine is often unable to successfully spin out the load and defaults to just progressing to the next cycle with the clothes till soapy.
5. When trying to balance the load, instead of tumbling back and forth to loosen clothes it only tumbles in one direction making the tangled or balled up clothes tighter and more out of balance.
6. It frequently adds in excess of 25 minutes to the overall cycle time while attempting to spin.

If you don't mind running your clothes through multiple cycles the machine does have a large number of cycles and temperatures available. It does a good job of cleaning. However it tends to rinse out the softener leaving clothes harsh when dried. The machine does have a "keep fresh" cycle and it does offer a self cleaning cycle.

Overall I would suggest that you look at a different model from this manufacturer or at a different brand.

Touchy-Touchy

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Performance Series High Efficiency Front Load Washer:

I bought this washer from a local furniture store, and was not provided with adequate information on how to operate it best. I don't know if the store employee's lacked this information, or if they were just being lazy. After a year of use, the inner rubber seal is almost gone. It has destroyed several clothing items, and leaks water out of the front (where the seal should be). I also have had difficulty getting accustomed to adequate load sizes, and the adequate detergent amounts. While the washer now runs fine for the most part, there's still the issue of the water leaking everywhere (not to mention small clothing items like washcloths and socks escaping the wash). I haven't been able to find the replacement part online, and to be honest, I dread having to pay for the costs of repairs due to having just paid off the washer itself. It seems that the product performance deteriorated too quickly for my husband and I to develop adequate user knowledge!

2 Years plus old and already over $300 to repair

By 

from Sudbury, ON, Canada

Comments about Maytag Performance Series High Efficiency Front Load Washer:

Don't buy Maytag Front Load Washers. I purchased mine in January of 2013. Bellow has ripped. Washer has alo ripped our 'clothes'. We had to clean out the drain weekly due to our little one's socks plugging the inlet of the pump. Maytag would not cover the repair. And to think we try and support local. Adios Maytag...

      I paid close to $800 for this model two years ago (23 months ago, to be exact). It now needs a $600 repair. I'm sorry I didn't get a Whirlpool, which lasted me 12 years with no issues and I left it in my other house when I sold it. I bet it is still going.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Abt was, as they always are, flawless.

            The delivery was prompt, the installer was professional and courteous. The work was completed in record time and the installation tested before they left.

            Abt service came out to look at the machine and they have been very good to try to make this machine work properly.

            No fault here. You can't do better than these people.

            Comments about Maytag Performance Series High Efficiency Front Load Washer:

            Replaced a 10 year old front loading machine with this one. I've been really disappointed.
            1. Wash cycles are almost 50% longer than previous. Cycles can approach 2 hours with the spin problems.
            2. You can't just put something wet in it and spin it dry. There is no such cycle.
            3. Clothes come out over washed, faded and tied in knots.
            4. Does a very poor job of rinsing. Towels come out scratchy with detergent residue. All fabrics are not soft when done but stiff and poorly rinsed.
            5. The spin cycle struggles to balance and spin out a load. This is probably part of the problem with the poor rinsing. The wash water is never properly extracted. In the final spin it often takes between 20 minutes or longer for the machine to finally balance the load to the point it will spin it dry.
            6. Where my previous machine never moved around even with the heaviest of loads this one vibrates and shakes like crazy.

            All in all, not a good purchase. I'd certainly not ever buy this brand again. A real disappointment.
