I would purchase this model again. They are fantastic. I have a tendency to over load previous washers and have not had the problem with this one as it has more than enough room. I live in an apartment and both the washer and dryer are ultra quiet. Does a great job cleaning, even very dirty clothes. Just make sure you keep the lid open when not in use to keep the tank from smelling on the washer and use the Afresh product at least monthly.

In an effort to save water, you have missed the point of the machine. There must be enough water to cover the clothes, otherwise I am forced to use the BULKY cycle for all clothes.The sensitivity for evenly distributed clothes causes me to re-adjust before being able to get the machine to properly wring out my clothes.I have pooled the clothes around the center, so I know I have used it properly.After one year, I have already had a maintanence visit because of the faulty latch on the lid, would not latch all of a sudden. So irritated that it locks you out ---for your protection. Funny I survived 45 yrs of washing clothes, without having to be protected and I may need another service visit, which are $$$$.I have had different washers over the years because of moving during 30 yrs, as an Army wife. No maintenance in even 10 yr old washers.Since I never get frustrated to this level, my husband said We can dump it and buy a different brand!!!!I will be calling to talk to someone in person.

Washer lasted only 4 years
By Former Maytag owner
from Woodlyn, PA
Comments about Maytag Bravos XL White Top Load Washer:
We bought this washing machine just 4 years ago and I recently had to replace it. The mother board malfunctioned in the machine and the estimated cost to repair is $500. Since we already paid for a service call, we plan to trash the machine and spend the $500 on another manufacturer without any electronics. It is a disgrace that these machines do not last longer and cost so much to repair. I will never purchase another Maytag product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great washer, but one problem
from New Richmond
I love this washer, but on my first load of bed sheets I discovered a large area about the size of a football was nearly abraded completely through the fabric. I think the low water usage of this high efficiency unit may have caused excessive abrasion on the fabric. I am concerned, but not willing to give up my machine
not a happy customer
from Frfanklin, NC
I had a Maytag washer for over 12 years and was very happy, now I got that new BravosX washer and I wish I had my old one back. This is not a washer this is a dry-washer, saving water is ok but to wash you need a bit more than this washer is giving you, then I have to use the detergent (Tide) before I made my own and saved money, plastic containers and the laundry smelled so good! Now I even have to wash the washer because you get an ugly smell after a while, more money and yes, you use water for that. So fare I don't know any one how is happy with the new washer. Sorry about that, but at last the new dryer is working just fine.
needs more water during wash
from Elkhart, Iowa, United States
Seems to be a little noisy. It tangles the load to much because it doesn't use enough water.
Noisiest washer ever!
from Niles, MI
Purchased the washer (with matching dryer) about 5 weeks ago. The dryer is so noisy that I sometimes think it is breaking itself apart. I cannot imagine that it will last a year with all the noise.
very easy to use
from Kentucky, United States
The controls are self explanatory, even my husband can use it!
Worked Well for a While and Then . . .
This machine broke while under warranty and got fixed. It worked well for a couple of years and then just died. A washer should last longer than 3 years. No wonder they discontinued this hunk of junk.
from Chalk Ruver , ont
The washer is used almost daily, uses a minimal amount of water with excellent results ( has a "bulky" setting which will fill the tub if required ) lots of variable options if desired to control , water temp,spin speed , pre wash, fabric softener , extra rinse, and the dirt level of the laundry.. All this is variable from the presets.All in all a good efficient h.e washer
Works as it should.
I've had this washer for about a year now and it works really well. Clothes are clean and product has great durability. The only negative is that the washer is a little noisy.
