This washer is beautiful. It has all the latest features that you would want or need. Very quiet operation. Cleaned clothes great! Plenty of capacity for big loads including my king size comforter. I did my due diligence on deciding which new washer to buy. Very pleased that I chose this Maytag Bravo XL MVWB950YG toploader for my home. Well worth the money spent and expect many many years of dependablity from the best name in washers in the business....MAYTAG. Stay lonely Maytag repairman !!!

Unfortunately after owning Maytag washing machines for more than 30 years I am disappointed with this machine. It is poorly designed. There is no soak feature in the machine and there is no way to increase the water level in the machine - the result is clothes being mangled. Also found that coins are allowed to go into the drain pump resulting in damage to the pump and expensive repairs. A screen costing 5 cents could avoid this. This machine may look good but I think it is a setback to washing machine technology.

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL HE White Top Load Washer:
I purchased all Maytag appliances when I bought my new home. 18 months later the dryer quit heating. A $100 service call, $200 parts and labor. A year later washer quit,Top seal for tub leaking which ruined tub bearings. Rotor bolt came loose causing magnets to wear down on rotor and stator scared up from that all needs replaced. Another $100 service call and $200 parts and labor. Maytag did provide part for dryer but said there was nothing they could do about washer. For two years Maytag refrigerator leaks water on kitchen floor sporadic.Needless to say I will not be purchasing anything Maytag in future.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Very poor washer
from Poway, CA
This model has low capacity, weird glitches in the electronics that sometimes prevents selection of a particular cycle, badly wrinkles some types of fabrics (so that they are still wrinkled after drying), etc. Check ratings on other web sites and you will find them to be much, much lower than the rating on this web site.
This machine holds a lot of laundry!!
from Alta Loma, CA
This is a fairly new machine, so it has only washed about a dozen loads. I can't believe how large the tub is. It is performing exactly as I expected. The clothes are going into the dryer clean and with little moisture.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from Forrest City Ar
I bought this washer and dryer 2 yrs ago.The washer has been leaking water down the front area somewhere.I cannot find out the exact location of the leak.Live out of service repairmans area.Now the lid has come loose on the left side. Appears to be rusted out.Wish I had kept my old Roper washer.
This is the worst washing machine I have had in 40 yrs.
from Holland, MI
We have had this washer a little over a year. Warranty is expired. Washer will not drain code Ld or F32 depending on how you look it up. I look this up on line, there are many other people with the same problem. We bought this machine because it had good reviews, but after the warranty is up look out.
from Monroe, MI.
Washer is less than 2 years old, and we are gone for 3 to 4 months in the winter. There are only 2 of us so we don't generater a lot of washing and the drive shaft, bearings and seal are bad. Maytag or whirlpool (same co.) would not do anything to help so Now we have a $400 repair bill. Think twice before you buy

About Me For me, it's all about the family and home environment
We have had this machine for a little over a year and it has broken down mutliple times. The locking mechanism repeatedly breaks so the machine will not run with the locking mechanism broken. Several times the machine has just stopped in the middle of a cycle and given us weird errors. It has been a horrible purchase for us.
from Portland, OR
This is the nicest washer I've ever owned and I cannot believe the difference in how the clothes come out like new! Highly recommend!

hate this machine with a passion
from Batesburg-Leesville, SC, United States
I have been tolerating this machine for the past year. I have lots of clothes to wash but if I put lots in it becomes unbalanced over and over again. I have had to remove over half the load in order for it to spin. This machine is definitely not an energy star. Each time the load becomes uneven it throws more water in it. At times it is spinning just fine not moving back and forth or making any bumping noises yet the thing stops beeps and says Ul. Which right now as I have almost completely unloaded most of the clothes in my washer it has went thru 10 cycles of Ul. At this point a sledgehammer would not do it justice. I will never buy a bravo xl again. Oh wait I can't because it has been discontinued hmm wonder why that is.

Had this washer for 2 years. Huge family of 7+ (add 4 dogs)! I can do a huge load of laundry, fit large comforters, etc. It's quiet and gets the job done. I love the pause button because it never fails there's a wayward sock or towel that needs to get tossed in 2 minutes after I've started the cycle. Can't go wrong with this model.
