Honestly, i'm still not used to using a High-Efficiency washer. It doesn't feel like it washes as well as traditional washers. There's a lot of fuzzies & other stuff leftover on the clothes after the wash. Unfortunately though.. i believe this is an issue with High-Efficiency washers. The workaround we figured out, was set the soil level a little higher, utilize the "bulky" item load, & add the extra rinse cycle. This will force the washer to use more water which will wash the clothes better. Another key item... make sure you move the clothes around the center of the washer. Don't load anything over the center of the drum... pretty much pretend that there is an agitator inside the washer when loading the clothes. The washer is noisy, but with enough closed doors it can be drowned out. There's a lot of loud clunks that at first we were worried something was wrong. What it is, is the lid locking & unlocking. The last comment... the lid latches locked. Why this is a problem, a lot of times we wash delicate clothes by hand in the washer & than run a normal load after washing the delicates. An easy way to allow for us to open the lid would be nice.. :-) Yes i complained a lot, but honestly, for a High-Efficiency, this is a nice washer, you just have to get used to it & learn how to manipulate the washer.

To be completely honest... I hate our washer. Yes, it is pretty to look at, but it does a terrible job washing clothes and sheets. First, I have to wash ALL my clothes on the bulky cycle just to actually get them wet... and trust me, I do not over fill my washer. I have washed every different size load possible; large, medium and small, and they still would come out with PHYSICAL dirt on them. Using the bulky cycle for everything is the only way I can get everything clean, and I hate it because that cycle is harder on your clothes and obviously it wastes water. On top of the clothes issue, washing sheets in this thing is absolutely horrible. One sheet always gets caught and gets stretched across the entire top of the load, so it looks like the top of a drum when you look down on it. The same thing happens when I wash rugs or anything, and it makes me wonder how clean things actually get when it is just floating on top of the load... I am usually not one to complain, because I take responsibility for my purchases, it was my choice, but I just wanted to cry when I noticed what a bad job the washer does. It was the first washer and dryer set I have ever purchased for our first home, it does a terrible job, and now I am stuck with it - wasting water and energy with every load. I should have stuck with the a front load washer. They are way more gentle on your clothes, and you have so much more room than you do with a top load washer. I hate to say it, but I will not be buying another Maytag product in my life. I was completely disappointed and upset that I let someone at the store talk me into this washer. I have tried every different water, cycle, and speed combination and I just can't get this thing to get my clothes really clean. I am replacing my washer as soon as I have money to do so, and it will not be with another Maytag product. I just wonder how this passes product testing, which leads me to wonder how good the rest of their products truly work...

Noisy sounds once the machine is on
from Suisun, CA
When I wash in bulk then the rotation of the drum becomes really noisy and made the edge of the inside part broken. This problem needs to be retested by the manufacture in order to become a good product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Medicine Hat, Alberta
Have been very pleased with this washing machine. Uses very little water and does a great job of getting the items clean. Is a tad noisy but liveable. A worthwhile buy at an affordable price. And no need for the Maytag repair man!!
The Bravos X washer is very efficient, runs quietly and cleans great. I highly recommend it.
A washer that meets our needs and more
from Cedar City, UT
When we tried our washer for the first time, we weren't sure how it could clean our clothes without the center component and without the tub being filled clear up with water, but after using it we haven't been disappointed, it gets our clothes real clean and saves us on the water bill. The one thing I don't like about it is the ability to stop it once it starts and add more clothes without it draining all the water out and having to start all over again.
Very pleased with overall performance
from madison, ms
Am amazed how clothes get so clean with so little water. Cleans delicate items and heavy items,such as bedding, with no soap carry over.
Clothes come out a wrinkled mess
from South Dakota
I decided to go with a traditional machine instead of a front loader because I'd read about a lot of issues with front loaders. I'm satifisfied with the washer in relation to how well it cleans, the features (although I'd like to have a bit more control over the combination of options), and how it looks, but if you plan to take clothes out of the washer to either hang or lie flat to dry, you WILL have to iron them. It doesn't matter what wash cycle I choose, they come out a wrinkled mess.
from Lynnfield, Ma
I love everything about my new Maytag! it lives up to the Maytag name for sure. Very quiet. Love the White Cycle. Everything comes out better than new. It's an amazing cycle. Takes a while, but worth the time.
Great view while washing. Very quite
from Rockport, tx
Have used this for 6 months and love it. It washes quite and uses very little water. The finish alarm could be a little louder
from Flushing NY
The machine has excellent capacity and accomodating controls which allow user to select proper cycle settings. Laundry emerges clean and just slightly damp, reducing drying time. One drawback; the macine is difficult to level during installation .
