I have noticed that my clothes come out of the washer, with less wrinkles and not as tangled as my old washer...Also have found that the drying time is less also..meaning it extracts more water then my old one did... but what I DON'T like about it, is that it senses the load, which takes at least 10 mins. to do so, before it even starts to wash...very quiet operation, which I disagree with what another reviewer had said,they said it was the noisiest washer they ever had... it DOES make strange noises as it washes, but does the job, and does it well and very quiet..as long as you're not in a hurry for a load..as it takes almost an hour for large load with the extra rinse cylce on...Also I don;t like the fact that the lid is locked before the washer starts to fill with water, as I like to rinse out the detergent and fabric softener lids after using....If you could live with these problems.. I do recommend this washer... I Solved the problems.. I just put everything in, close the lid,start it and,walk upstairs , and come back in about an hour to throw it in the dryer...LOL

Although this machine appears to have an agitator in the middle to ensure clean clothes, do not be deceived. Unless you use the heavy setting (which results in random holes in your clothing), it doesn't remove even any surface foreign matter. I accidentally tipped over a bowl of cereal while I was getting ready to load the washer one time, and the few pieces I didn't find before I washed the clothes...were still sitting on them when the machine finished!!! Unless you HEAVILY pre-treat fresh stains, don't expect them to look anything but wetter after washing it. After just 3 months of light use the machine started shaking and flailing about when it tried to spin. After the lights went out and it stopped, I opened the lid - only to have it start up lid OPEN an hour later. This utterly voids the purpose of the safety "lid lock" feature. After I unplugged it and let it sit a day, I tried the spin/drain cycle but it wont spin at all. I never overload the washer - there's no point in even trying since then it doesn't even fully wet the clothes. By overload I mean even ever-so-lightly press down on the clothes to tuck in a pair of shorts or tee shirt. Overall, if you want wet dirty clothes, go with Maytag (which is the same manufacturer as an identical Whirlpool machine) - otherwise choose another machine.

Comments about Maytag Centennial White Top Load Washer:
I love the high capacity stainless steel tub. This machine handles a large load, and without the agitator, doesn't damage or wear out clothes like other machines. It has lots of great options, but is simple to use, and very quiet. I know this machine will last a long time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I picked up the dryer to this set to replace our old one. After seeing the dryer in action we picked the washer up to within a few days. This set works very well we didn't know just how bad our old units had gotten. This set is a great replacement with many new features we didn't have on our old set.

Great features, quiet, gets clothes really clean, energy saving.
This machine is quick, my clothes are clean and I feel good knowing I am using less energy.
This machine is super easy to use despite having so many functions and possible settings. It has a large capacity and my clothes have come out clean even using cold water. It
This product beats my expectation
My first time in buying a Maytag product was to replace a Kenmore washer. We have always purchased a Kenmore product since the 1970's. I purchased a energy star top loader and have been quite happy with it's performance .
Good basic washer
from Southwestern Pennsylvania
I like this washer, but I don't love it. I find that I miss very much some features, especially a fabric softener dispenser, a detergent dispenser and a buzzer at the end of cycle to let me know the wash is completed. The washer itself is very efficient and my clothes come out very clean and the spin cycle takes out enough water that my drying time is cut in half! That I love but in the future I will not purchase a washer that doesn't have the fabric softener and detergent dispensers and an end of cycle buzzer - I didn't realize how much I missed then.
Noticed the difference in cleanliness of clothes immediately. My sheets have never been so fresh. Love the settings for bulky sheets and extra rinse cycle. Lots of setting to choose from.
This product is energy saving and has a large capacity but every load has to be double rinsed and sometimes washed twice which cancels out any savings
from Shelbyville, in
The positives- the capacity is large. The negatives- makes a horrible sound when the load is "off"; the lid locks when the start button is pushed;I have to double rinse every load and sometimes the clothes still are not clean; the start to finish time is extremely long.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
product has great features
gets cloths really clean especially if you use the right laundry detergent l. e. 7th generation he laundry detergent.
Does a great job in cleaning an assortment of clothes. I love how it conserves water and energy.
