My wife and I bought this washer after our old conventional washer died. I found this model at home depot for a great price. After consulting my Consumer Reports magazine and finding a related maytag model recommended, we bought this washer. We have been very happy with it.

I noticed in customer reviews that most (if not all) of the complaints have to do with how HE top loaders work. Make sure you know the difference before buying. (Its also helpful to know consumer reports doesn't recommend conventional washers anymore because they don't perform as well as HE, and company's are not investing in conventional designs anymore.)

Our Observations:

1. IT CLEANS VERY WELL: We noticed a big improvement over our old conventional washer. It needs less soap because it uses less water and the cleaning is more concentrated. We fell it also agitates clothes better.

2. PLENTY OF SETTINGS: This washer allows you to be in control. If you read the manuals cycle guide you will find that you can wash just about anything (including comforters). You can also lengthen or shorten cycles by adjusting settings such as soil level and extra cleaning cycles.

3. SHORTER CYCLE TIMES: The reason we went top loader over front loader really came down to price and cycle times. The standard cycle time for this washer is about 45min. A front loader is more like 90 min+. For dirty loads the power-wash cycle on this washer does last 90min but does a great job on dirty towels etc.

4. FASTER SPIN SPEEDS: Alot of the energy savings comes from fast spin speeds that reduce drying time. We saw our drying times drop by about 10-15min a load! thats a huge savings.

5. 10 YEAR WARRANTY: Its backed by a ten year warranty and It seems to be built well.

6. MODERN DESIGN: It looks great!

7. MUCH QUIETER: We noticed a considerable difference from the old noisy conventional.

8. ITS ACTUALLY FUN TO USE: With a glass top and plenty of settings, it makes doing laundry not so boring.

A COUPLE OF CONCERNS ANSWERED:

1. WRINKLING: After reading some reviews, we where concerned about wrinkling. Yes clothes do get more wrinkled, the wrinkle control setting helps, but we found that for items we hang dry we put in the dryer for just a few minutes and pull them out. This gets the wrinkles out. If you dry most of your clothes in a dryer its not going to be a issue. We hang dry alot, and feel wrinkled is wrinkled, we still had wrinkle problems with a conventional washer.

2. WATER LEVEL: After reading some reviews, we where concerned that it might not use enough water. With a glass top you can see that it does get clothes plenty wet as it agitates. An HE top loader works by concentrating soap and agitation. If your really concerned about water levels other cycles including the hand wash cycle also uses more water. The manual warns that with high spin speeds, clothes come out much dryer than a conventional washer, and can even completely dry portions of the load.

3. HE DETERGENT: You must use HE detergent. After having to give away some old conventional Detergent, we found that most detergents come in HE and the prices are very comparable. We have found Targets HE to work great! It was recommended by consumer reports and is affordable.

ARE THERE ANY POSSIBLE CON'S ABOUT THE MACHINE:

1. LOAD SIZE: Yes with out an agitator there is more room, but with the instructions to load clothes loosely around edge of the washer its not much different in load size of a conventional. We might have gone for the larger model if we had shopped around more and had a bigger budget.

2. THE KNOB: The buttons seem to be good quality but the main turning knob is made of cheap plastic. It works fine but could have been way better.

3. COST: Dont pay the prices online. We found ours as a clearance display model. We saved hundreds over online prices. I would NOT pay $850 as some online sites posted. Look for a good deal in stores, and watch sales.

As a once loyal and happy long time Maytag owner (40+ yrs), there was no doubt that the performance of my new Maytag would be good. Unfortunately, this new washer has been a big disappointment. I have now owned the machine 6 months, which I felt was a reasonable time to fairly evaluate the product, and still have not seen the quality performance that I expected from Maytag.

Cons (Concerns):
1. Does not clean well. Tee shirts (100% cotton) have to be washed up to 3 times in order to get out dirt from the yard or from playing. I have 2 garments that I wore while working in the yard that are still dirty. Next step will be to ask my neighbor to throw the tees into her wash so I know it will then be cleaned.
2. Not all garments getting wet. I have yet to understand how a washing machine is able to go through a 66 minute cycle and come out as dry as when it was placed in the machine. And yes, I read the manual and the clothes are placed around the outside of the washing plate.
3. Bulky items come out overly wet as if they did not get spun out. Towels, jeans, blankets, and jackets are the most effected. Because of the excessive moisture, it then requires more time in the dryer. So whatever savings I am receiving with the HE washer, it is creating a higher impact to my electric use due to the dryer.
4. Wrinkles, wrinkles everywhere and everytime. Sheets often come out in a knot and even the dryer does not take out the wrinkles. Many of my garments are delicate and are line dried and due to the excessive wrinkles now requires ironing instead of washing & wearing.
5. Noise from the machine operating is LOUD. I understand the "clunking" noise that comes from the evaluation of the load, but do not expect to hear noises throughout the cycle.
6. Unable to reset the program if stopped unexpectedly. Still haven't figured out why this happens but when it does the only way to reset the washer is to pull the plug. Very odd.

Pros:
1. End cycle chime. Never had this on prior Maytags and really appreciate this feature.
2. Big tub allows larger loads

Before I made my purchase I read the reviews from others and even after seeing a few dissatisfied comments I still purchased this washer. In hind sight I wish I had given more credence to those comments and I would have purchased my washer from a different company. Don't do what I did. If you have any reservations, then I suggest you investigate further. I can't explain why some consumers are very pleased with this washer and then others, like myself, do not have a positive opinion. Regardless, I have a washer that I will have to endure for at least the next 10-15 years.

Maytag is not what it used to be :(

By 

from Dinuba, CA

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Lunar Silver Top Load Washer:

We purchased our new Maytag washer and dryer set 3 years ago due to our over 20 year old Maytag was ready to be put down :( We stuck with Maytag for their very good quality appliances and the longevity. Unfortunately, the new washer has given us problems that have cost us over $500, and it has been the same part. The plastic agitator has been stripped 5 times in the 3 years that we have had it. We called the company to see if there is a defect on those specific machines,but have been told that they are fine. I beg to differ. It is so unfortunate that our trust in the Maytag Bravo X Washer is no more. We keep it because I don't want to sell it and give somebody else the stress of having to replace the agitator twice a year. The part costs $117 and that's too much for even us to afford. I'm now washing only 3 pairs of pants at a time and about 5/6 shirts for fear of having to spend more money. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS WASHER TO ANYBODY. Maybe another Maytag machine, just not the Bravo.

Junk

By 

from Troy, Ohio

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Lunar Silver Top Load Washer:

I bought this washer 4 years ago. The bottom fell out of it. When I loaded it the drum fell to the floor! Left a wear mark on the hard wood floor where the pulley rubbed it. I called Maytag. And the do not stand behind their product. It was going to cost me $60-$75 an hour plus parts. Or $320 to fix it. Or the could cell me another washer for $481. Wow!! I bought a Maytag cause I thought they stood behind their product! I was sooo wrong!!! Never buy a Maytag!

Best washer

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Lunar Silver Top Load Washer:

After 10+ years our washer died. Since we have had really good luck with Maytag we decided to go with another Maytag washer and dryer set. We didn't realize how worn-out our old washer was until we used this one. Our clothes were so much brighter and whiter than ever before. It was a blessing in disguise. Thanks Maytag

Runaway Train

By 

from Vero Beach, Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Lunar Silver Top Load Washer:

We purchased our washer/dryer set in 2013 and are very pleased with the performance of both EXCEPT .... this past year the washer's spin cycle sounds like a runaway train. The noise is so loud you can hear it outside when all doors are closed. We do not understand why it is suddenly making such a noise and do not see the need to spend the money to have a service person come to tell us there is nothing wrong with the machine.

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Lunar Silver Top Load Washer:

I bought this less than a year ago and have already had to get a repairman out to fix it. The main problem is that it has really long cycles and it does not wash even medium sized loads very well. Forget washing sheets and bedding! Do not buy this washer

This was purchased to replace a previous Maytag washer. So far it washes well but the true test will be if it lasts long, and doesn't break down like our other one. I am happy that it came with a 10 year warranty, unlike our previous one which only came with a 1 year warranty.

By

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Lunar Silver Top Load Washer:

I bought my Bravos washer just over two years ago after having my previous Maytag washer for 23 years. It washes clothes great. However, just over a month ago it started not finishing a cycle. At first, I thought it was just unbalanced load, but now every wash is a struggle. Repairman will come for the third time and will be replacing the control panel. I am surprised that it would fail after only two years.

Looks aren't everything

By 

from Tamarac, Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Lunar Silver Top Load Washer:

We bought this washer and dryer not because our old Maytag that we had for at least 10 years was broken but because it was starting to show its age. The new one was so pretty and shiny. Oh how I wish I had the old one back!! This washer barely wets the clothes on the normal cycle and really roughs the clothes up. We thought this must be a defect. We called the store where we purchased it and they sent someone out who said that is the way it is supposed to be!! He convinced us to keep it and see if we could get used to it. We went on a road trip for a month, returned and are still not happy with its performance. We don't get very dirty so I found that if I wash on the bulk cycle you get ample water. Being old we don't deal well with stress so as long as it's usable to some degree we will keep it. But Maytag, I feel so surprised that this is happening with your brand. We purchased the extended warranty in case it stops working all together.
