This washer is beautiful. It has all the latest features that you would want or need. Very quiet operation. Cleaned clothes great! Plenty of capacity for big loads including my king size comforter. I did my due diligence on deciding which new washer to buy. Very pleased that I chose this Maytag Bravo XL MVWB950YG toploader for my home. Well worth the money spent and expect many many years of dependablity from the best name in washers in the business....MAYTAG. Stay lonely Maytag repairman !!!

This machine leaves a dirty/linty film on clothes. With the limited water supplies and pretty nonexistent agitator, clothes are not getting cleaned. Whether using different cycles, cleaning the machine with Affresh and standing over the machine for the whole cycle, I remain TOTALLY unimpressed. I have run separate rinse cycles, made sure the machine is not overloaded, made sure that thing in the middle that calls itself an agitator is not covered, and had a technician out. I will be calling Maytag (for the 3rd time) to ask for my money back on get a regular agitator machine that I control rather than automatic settings. The image I am attaching was taken right after a load was washed 5 minutes ago.

Great Machine, Plenty of Wash Cycle Options
from Cedar Falls, IA
Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Granite Top Load Washer:
Loving this large capacity machine, do not have to worry about a musty smelling wash tub or clothes due to top load. Clear lid is great, as is the time count-down functionality, I know exactly how long until the load is done. For those complaining about soap residue - use a cycle that has a normal rinse rather than the water-saving rinse, problem solved! Also, you have to load it properly - placing clothes around the wash plate at the bottom of the wash bin so the machine adds the correct amount of water to the cycle. For those complaining about how dry or wrinkled your clothes turn out, try adjusting the level of spin to a lower level. I love the fact that I can put delicates in and have them come out ready to be hung to dry with little or no wrinkles, also love the fact that I can put comforter for my king bed in and have it spun out so that it is relatively dry coming out of the washer, which cuts down on dry time. Many of the complaints I've read in these reviews are easily fixed, by using the settings on the machine. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a spin cycle, you have to rinse and spin.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Terrible! Do not buy this washer
from Boise, ID
You can expect half of your load to be clean and the other half to have soap residue and be a wrinkled mess. It has a large capacity which fits a big blanket or comforter but only the bottom half of the blanket will actually be clean. Articles of clothing ball up together. Soap residue on any dark colored clothing.This is a terrible machine. Don't buy it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Worst washer and dryer I have ever had
from El Paso Tx 79912
Bedding cycle; sheets come out all tangled inside round ball (the fitted sheet) / I use HE ALL brand pods and black clothes come out with splotches of soap on them. / I cannot reach the clothes at the bottom of the tub (5.3), I have to use kitchen tongs to take small items out, I wanted large tub to do fewer loads for family laundry. / Wrinkle free cycle is a joke......you cannot hang to dry those items that you do not want to put in a warm dryer. This washer was over $800. No floor model when I bought, researched online.
Worse washing machine ever
By Jodi - so disappointed
Very unfortunate. This machine has been nothing but trouble. My clothes pill. The load comes out with hair and lint. The load comes out with laundry detergent still on it- even after the extra rinse.
Can't believe all of the good reviews
from Louisville, KY
Washing clothes is not rocket science. I follow directions. I use the proper amount of detergent. I am now on my third rinse trying to get the soap out of a load of towels and washcloths. I think it may take a fourth rinse. The towels do not smell good. My towels have not smelled good since I purchased this washer two years ago. And by the way, I had just cleaned the washer which I do every time it tells me to. How can this machine be called energy efficient??? I will search high and low for one with an agitator the next time I buy a washing machine. Will not be sad to see this one go.
No big problems
By Gregory 92111
from San Diego
I've had this machine for a couple years and have never had a major problem. I have always taken the time to load the wash basket one piece at a time around the wash plate. I usually wash medium to small loads. Super spin speed is great as some items come out nearly dry. Never had a odor problem but I leave the lid open a lot. The only irk would be it lacks a spin only cycle for wet items. ( It has a rinse and spin cycle. ) I am not a big family here, no oversized loads.
Never Hated Doing Laundry Until Buying This HORRIBLE Machine
By Pam with Clammy Hands
It's obvious most of the reviews are the same: Ripped towels, shredded wash clothes and clothes; Nearly dry loads with some items remaining dirty; AND THE WORST for me is the constant white gunk on ALL my dark clothes and comforters that has to be run through 2-3 times and then I still have to hand scrub my work slacks to get it off. One load of dark clothes should never take 5 hours to complete. If I wanted to hand wash clothes, I wouldn't have spent $600+ for a Maytag. This is completely disappointing and Maytag should be ashamed. What a piece of JUNK !!!

DO NOT BUY
from Kennebunkport, Maine
This is the biggest piece of junk washing machine I have ever owned. I have 5 children and do laundry constantly. The machine does not clean the clothes- dog hair on bedding remains stuck to the clothes after the wash cycle, stains never come out and the twisting and wringing of the clothes during the wash cycle leaves wrinkles that can't be ironed out. I HATE HATE HATE this machine! THE WORST PART is the unbalanced load. I can not wash one load of twin size bedding (nothing else with it) without getting the unbalanced load alarm, not just once but like 2-3 times. I end of trying to redistribute soaked towels and sheets almost every single load. If you are even considering buying this machine you are crazy. I am on the verge of intentionally sabotaging the machine so that my husband will consent to purchasing a new one. THE.WORST.WASHING MACHINE.ON.THE.MARKET! I would seriously give it zero stars if I could. The dryer is fine (though the steam cycle is useless)
Wish it had more user controls!
Bought this washer in 2012. It does clean the clothes and linen. I miss being able to add as much water as I want. The soak cycle is a joke - if the clothes are merely wet, not submerged in a cleaning additive tub of water the stains aren't really effected. I have to wash dark clothes twice sometimes since there is a white residue left on them from the wash cycle.
Does not clean well
By Wasted money
from Kansas City MO
We have had this washer for 4-5 months. We have 3 kids and my husband does get dirty at his job. We have been continuously disappointed in this washer and incapable ability to clean clothes. It does not agitate the clothes enough. Bedding or large items settle flat with gunk collecting on bottom of comforter. Our front loader was tremendously better than this.
