Totally awesome washer! I was a little concerned about the price, but, after receiving the washer and using it I have found that I got exactly what I paid for. I now feel like my clothes were not getting clean from my old washer. 12 cycles to use . I have used all but one now. The Allergen, but, I will end up using that one eventually. You can actually set each cycle different then the default cycle. It does spin hard enough to wrinkle your clothes more then a agitator washer, but, the wrinkles come out in the dryer and you can adjust the spin speed on each cycle also. On each cycle you can adjust the wash temp, the spin speed, and the soil level. Each one has 4 levels. It gives you lots of options. Most cycles are around 1 hour long. You can use rapid wash if you are in a hurry and use the other levels with that. Rapid wash is like 37 minutes long.

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.

Very poor washer
from Poway, CA
Comments about Maytag Bravos XL HE White Top Load Washer:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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
Worst Machine Ever
By Mr Clean
from Atlanta GA
I've owned this machine for 9 months and have been washing my clothes at the laundry mat for the last month because the machine doesn't get my clothes clean. There is also an odor being left in the clothes during the wash. Totally disappointed with product.

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.

Quiet and does a great job with little water. When the spin cycle is done some of my clothes are dry enough to where right out of the washer.
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.
