When looking for a new washing machine we read the reviews but we put a LOT more consideration in what family and friends advised. Maytag products came up as the primo! Next we were advised against front loads. Yeah, we know some live by them but people kept telling us they (in general) leak and smell. So the awesome topload model Bravos is what we chose in the steel gray. Beautiful color and cant wait to get the matching dryer. So, performance is a bit iffy as design allows the clothing to get twisted and turned. Several items have actually come out ripped and that is exasperating. One daughter put an expensive bra in (which I admonished her for doing anyway) and this beast split it right at the front...right in two. It seems this problem is worst when a bit more heavier loaded down, which is why we WANTED a large machine though for our family of 6. Overall the washer cleans well, it has an amazing capacity and is so quiet we can't tell when it's running sometime. *I've actually complained to the kids they were not doing their laundry chores because I could not hear it running! LOL!

I replaced my old W/D with these in April 2013. The capacity is awesome and I love the drop in basket as opposed to the front loaders. I do not have any of the front loader problems of mold/musty smell, etc. I do leave the top open right after a load just in case, especially since it isn't in the way. Only three complaints so far. 1. With large loads, mainly blankets/quilts when it gets off balance makes a terrible noise and will error out until I even out the load. I don't wash those things that often so not that big of a deal. 2. The cup you pour fabric softener doesn't get out all of the fabric softener and leaves a buildup that I need to wipe out. Not that big of a deal but just annoying. 3. I noticed that because there is not agitator and it is "Energy and Water Efficient" that some clothes don't come out as clean as they should or could. This is the biggest problem that I'm not sure how this can be remedied. Overall its not a bad purchase just wish these three things were addressed.

Big Mistake-Don't buy one

By 

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        I brought this 17 months ago and thought it was a good washer. I liked the idea that it could hold larger loads and clean with less water. After 15 months I noticed it was getting louder in the spin cycle. It has gotten so loud that I now have to have it repaired. The repair person advised this is a common and expensive problem with this washer. I owned one other washer (not Maytag) that lasted 30 years and never needed a repair. I'm very disappointed and after reading others reviews on this washer, I wished I would have seen them sooner. I wouldn't have purchased it. I definitely wouldn't recommend it. The adage "The loneliest repair guy" doesn't seem to apply to Maytag any longer.

                    I have had this washer for several months and I by far the best washer I have ever had! It is extremely quiet and can hold large loads. It spins the load to almost dry so my dryer does not run as long. I love all the options it has to offer. I had a front loader for 5 years prior and it was the worst machine ever! Get this top load washer! It is wonderful!

                          This washing machine has been in use the day that I first bought it. With three school kids and a new born, me and my wife are washing a lot, but we have not seen a expensive utility bill, that's great news for me.

                                Bought this for our new home...we're a little worried when reading reviews. Outside of the reviews we had found a great deal on this product and couldn't resist taking the chance. Boy were the negative reviews way off, I guess the people that were saying that their clothes came out all stiff and full of soap....THEY MUST NOT KNOW HOW TO LAUNDRY IN GENERAL!!!!.... My clothes and towels are the softest i've ever had ...thank you

                                      This is a really good washer for a really fair price. Holds tons more than my old one and has a lot of great choices for wash settings. PS Bought the matching dryer with the steam setting and love it, too!

                                            Was so disappointed that this large capacity washer is extremely difficult to reach all the clothes in the bottom of the tub. I need a wooden spoon to scoop all the clothes out. I'm 5'4" so not the shortest person. Never occurred to me to check that out when making my purchase. I also think the glass top is a cleaning nightmare. Constantly needs to be wiped to remove water spots after a load. Unnecessary
                                            feature. Do we really need to watch the clothes washing? Added so many features so they can charge money. Most people do not even use them. I find appliance shopping frustrating. Spend a lot of money for a mediocre product.

                                                    This is our first high efficiency washer. My husband was fixated on this model. He couldn't explain why, but he felt the other models didn't measure up in features and looks as the Bravos XL. This washer can hold a lot of laundry, but we have a tendency not to load it up too much to get a good wash. This washer uses so little washer in a normal load, it's amazing. Same with detergent. We're getting by on such a small amount. The clear lid is neat. Watching the wash is mesmerizing. We love all the cycle choices - it offers so much flexibility. Pretty amazing technology to get HE efficiency from a top load and no worries of leaking gaskets.
