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.

Worst Machine Ever

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

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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
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.
Always problems with bulky items
from Lawrence, KS, United States
I have had this washer for two years and it consistently is a problem with large items, such as blankets, light bedspreads, and comforters. The load stops and signals an imbalanced load, but it literally can take several hours and several tries to get the machine to just spin the item out, after having to rinse it each time. No amount of rebalancing the load ever works on the first tries. Ultimately, I have to unplug the machine, let the computer clear its signals, and then hope that the next attempt will work. While the machine advertises itself to handle large loads, it does not handle large, single items. I wish it just had a reliable SPIN ONLY feature and not take 27 min. each time I attempt the RINSE/SPIN.

Do not purchase
from Columbia, TN, United States
I have owned this washer 2 months and am not at all happy with the washer. It ruins my good clothing by wringing them so tightly in the spin cycle that it is very difficult, sometimes even impossible, to remove the wrinkles even on the delicate cycle. Not worth the investment. Sad that I spent so much on a machine that I hate to use.
Great washing machine with lots of choices for types of wash
from Virginia, United States
I love it! The machine gives me lots of choices in types of washes. I like that feature and I am able to change to water temperature for each type of wash.

Clothes do not get clean!
from Columbus, OH, United States
I bought this washer a few months ago and have regretted it ever since. Today, I sat and watched an entire wash cycle and a sock I placed on top, never made it to the bottom.... I'm assuming this is why none of my clothes actually come out clean. I don't think I'm packing it too full... Could I be not placing enough clothing in it??? Ugh. Totally disappointed.
