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

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

I bought this three years ago and now we have a problems. The codes are F6 and E1 with service being random with two different local companies. We are in need of repair and have spent over $50 in using a laundry mat. Patience is all we have in waiting for repairs.

Very Dissappointed

By 

from New Brunswick Canada

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

I got this washer in October 2012. It has broken for the 3rd time, and I am beyond frustrated. Last repair bill was $250 and now the drain pump is the issue, along with washer never performing to expectation. I do not understand how a company can sell appliances for big money and not be responsible for how it performs. It also has always leaked slgihtly from the door, especially during my dark load with jeans or other heavy clothing. I should not have to purchase a new washer in less than 5 years

Maytag doesn't back up their waranty

By 

from Ridgecrest Ca.

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

I bought this set (washer and dryer) with a 10 year waranty. After 5 years of operation, the washer door would not unlock and washer displayed a code of F1 E2. I investigated the codes, paid for professional help and found out it was the code for a bad motor. I inquired with Maytag about the Waranty (covered basket and motor) and found out they would only honor the waranty if the machine was diagnosed from a authorized Maytag repair man. This cost for diagnoses from the nearest authorized repairman would have broken down like this (80.00 for service call, 65.00 per hour labor to diagnose problem, 80.00 for 2nd service call to install part after recieving it, 65.00 per hour labor to install part), in total it would have cost me out of pocket 290.00 to have an authorized repairman do what I did in 1 hour. I ordered the the motor from Maytag, 233.00 plus 25.00 shipping and installed it myself. Maytag parts department said they do not accept core (old motor). So doing the math, what would you rather do? Pay 258.00 and not have to take vacation for a maintenance man service call OR pay 290.00 and have to take vacation twice for a maintenance mans service call. I am not happy about this. I feel dupt and will not be buying another Maytag anything.

HATE IT

By 

from Coon Rapids, MN

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

Bought this washer on 8/7/2012. Cycles are way too long and it eats the clothes (have found rips, twisted, torn, etc shirts, pants, etc. I had a front loading machine before this and never had a problem. It takes me twice as long to do laundry than in the past since I can't put many clothes in the drum and the cycles take so long. Today (haven't even had the thing 4 years) water starts coming out of the detergent area (and not going into the drum). Came back to water all over the floor. I was so happy to finally buy a Maytag appliance - glad this one is discontinued but I'm never buying another Maytag appliance.

Disappointed

By 

from Drexel Hill, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

I must say I swore by Maytag. We've had several maytag appliances but this stackable washer/dryer set has been a real problem from the day we bought them. We are paying for our 4th repair visit on this set. I'm truly disappointed with this combo and it's costing me a fortune for the repairs. If I had the money I would replace this set with another brand. Anyway it's a shame that I've lost confidence in Matag. This set is only 3 1/2 years old.

Regret Purchasing

By 

from Indiana

Comments about Maytag Performance Series White Front Load Washer:

I have never written an online product review, but I hate this washer so much I have decided to warn others. I bought this washer three years ago because I liked how it looked and the reviews and features seemed solid. Within the first year, we had to replace the gasket. We had to do it once more after the warranty expired ($200). Now we regularly get errors when trying to run all but the smallest of loads. We have to unplug the machine to reset it, or manage to unlock the door and spill water all over the floor to manually adjust the load so that we can complete a cycle. This washer is far more hassle than it's worth. A very regretful purchase.
