We purchased this washer and the accompanying electric dryer after our old, awful top-loader went out. We have had them now for 3 months. We have a small space and this was by far the best stackable option we could find that was 72" or under in total height. The front loading washer uses far less water and spins so fast that clothes come out more dry than our prior washer (meaning shorter drying times). The number of options is great. The quality and performance so far seems great. The capacity seems smaller than our old washer but not by much making the difference negligible. The washer does cavitate at the highest spin speed, making some noise, but still quieter than the old washer and not being an issue even with a dryer stacked on top of it. Overall, we really enjoy this washer and dryer combo. It has made the room they are in look much better and, believe it or not, doing laundry is actually a bit more fun now that we have this.

The other reviews posted are hilarious. People are giving this washing machine great reviews based on its water savings and efficiency. Seriously? EVERY front loading washer will save you water, that?s what they do.

What those reviews don?t tell you is that is the ONLY benefit of this machine. I?ve been a miserable owner of this washer for ONE DAY, and it?s already been a horrible situation. This washing machine is LOUD; much louder than the old, cheap top-loader I just replaced. When the water runs through the soap dispenser it sounds like a hamster on a squeaky wheel. When the water pumps out of the machine to drain it is louder than the engine on my car! These noises are so loud, I set the timer to wash in the middle of the night, through 2 closed doors and down a hall, this machine woke me up! The only perk I?ve noticed is that whatever mechanism spins the drum is actually quite quiet. If I could find a way to wash my laundry without using running water, it would be a very quiet process.

But probably the most ridiculous overlook in this product development is the very large gap in the rubber seal around the door. I have washed a whopping 4 loads of laundry with this machine, and I have already had to pull 9 socks and one washcloth out of this seal. This is 9 socks and one washcloth that were lodged into the seal very early in the cycle and were not cleaned as a result. This is 9 socks and one washcloth that will need to be washed again. Reviewers on other sites have complained about this particular model ripping garments; I?d bet the farm this faulty seal is the reason. If the sleeve of my favorite top were to become lodged in this rubber gap while the body of the garment remained in the drum, what do you think will be the outcome when the drum begins a spin cycle? Yeppers? a ripped sleeve.

I would call to complain about this? but there is nothing functionally wrong with this machine. It?s working as well as it was poorly designed. How is it a housewife can pick out a SERIOUS design flaw in a product in five minutes of use, but all of the engineers at Maytag missed this one? I should have gotten a different brand; I won?t ever trust a Maytag again

Disappointing

By 

from Lloydminster , Alberta , Canada

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

Bought this machine expecting a lot more out of it. 1 year and 1 month old the belt blew. So no warranty and had to pay for it and the service call. Now a year later the water drain pump was clogged with an error code. I ended up reading online to open up the front and clean it out. Apparently it eats socks as that and gunk had completely clogged it.
Not happy with this purchase and would never buy a Maytag washer again

Piece of junk :(

By 

from State College, PA

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

Bought this in 2011. Since 2012 it's been eating/mangling our clothes. A leak in the door gasket developed in 2012. This summer the control panel died. Total for parts was going to be near $700. We owned for a total of 4 years and two months. Wish I'd kept my old washer--it probably would still be running, but I wanted to upgrade to high-efficiency. Terrible move.

NOT SATISFIED

By 

from USVI

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

I bought this washer 4 years ago. I like that it is energy efficient. I also like that it is water efficient, but I would prefer if I could see water during the wash cycle. Unless there are only a few items in the washer (and I don't fill more that half the drum) all I see during the wash is wet clothes and very little water. Also the cycles are too long. There is the option to use the rapid wash cycle but the normal, white, or other cycles take about an hour or more. 1 hour plus to wash a load is entirely too long. I usually do laundry on Saturday so it would take all day if I were to use anything but the rapid wash. Lots of good features but I cant use them because of the length of time.

Biggest piece of junk I have ever bought

By 

from Shelburne, ON

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

Worked well for first year. Right after warranty ended, the front gasket ripped. cost $150. Gasket ripped again a few days ago. The machine ate clothes, (once again), and smoke came out from the front door. We have a 6 year old and a three year old, we need a reliable washer. Next one WILL NOT be from the Whirlpool family of products.

Worst washer ever: newly weds buy this junk w/ wedding savin

By 

from Rochester NY

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

This washer, being less than 2 years old, has eaten more clothes and left them smelly for far too long. We live just us two in our house, so we are not over-working the machine. You probably discontinued it because you know it sucks. I feel ripped off with my savings from my wedding presents :( If I could give this a zero, I would. Whatever happened to the great Maytag name? Whatever happened to quality products that last longer than the lifespan of an abused hamster? This machine performs horribly, never cleaning the way it should. It has eaten my work shirts and wife's expensive undergarments, and keeps getting clogged with the clothes it destroys. Maytag, can you redeem your name? Help me and my wife with this please. Obviously, this machine has problems, and you know it. What can you do?

Worst machine EVER

By 

from Englewood, Ohio

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

I bought this machine about 3.5 yrs ago. So far the front rubber seal has ripped, it's the loudest machine EVER and it started having error codes F9E1. After doing some online research I found that the drain pump on these machines have a tendency to clog up.. If you get Error F9E1 remove the bottom front cover ( three small screws hold it on) then put a large pan under the drain pump access pipe, take off the drain pump plug in front and remove debris... Still hate this washer but I was able to get it to start running again. Look up on YouTube "Maytag F9E1" there is a few great DIY clips that are really helpful.

Unreliable

By 

from Houston, TX, United States

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

Let me first tell you this isn't a "fresh out of the box" review, we have owned this washer for 3 years. I understand regular maintenance, but this machine needs far to much attention. After about a year it would only preform the "quick wash" cycle it allows maybe two or three towels... of course then things wouldn't come competently clean. After all..we are a house of only three,this machine was not abused lol . Here we are year three and I am DONE, after my laundry was stuck in the washer for a day while looking on line for a solution and 300 dollars in parts(I am returning the parts) I am finally getting rid of it.

Do not EVER buy this washer!!!

By 

from Monroe, LA, United States

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

Bought this washer March 1, 2011. Never been happy with it. It has set cycles and does not let you just spin out clothes or change a cycle once started. Clothes do not spin out very well, very wet. For the past 2 years, it shows a F1E9 error about every third load, and always about 1 minute before the machine finishes washing. When this happens, it shuts down, locks the door, and won't let you open it. Have to turn it off, unplug, wait 15-30 min and start cycle all over again. I did discover if you tilt the machine up and let it slam back down onto the ground, sometimes (only sometimes), the machine will drain and begin the cycle again. 2 days ago, the rubber seal tore and gushes water all over the floor when washing clothes. $80.00 for a new one. Forget that, I'll put that $80.00 towards a new washer, and it will NOT be a Maytag!!! If an overall rating of "0" was offered, I would choose it. DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE!!! It has been nothing but a huge disappointment and a pain in the rear!!!!!
