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!

This washer has a large capacity but due to the water saving features if you try to utilize the larger capapcity it does not clean well. Also it gets off balance very easily when washing sheets or a blanket. When this happens the machine tries to correct the problem automatically by refilling with water and agitating but is unsuccessful. In addition, there is not a spin only option available to the consumer to correct the problem and the manual is not helpful. I did find out through a technician how to override the electronic system...but what good is that if it is not given to the consumer in the manual. The machine is extremely, tall, and I am 5'7 and it is a full reach for me to get the clothes out. When I do reach over the side panels on this machine push in. I am afraid I amgoing to leave a permanent dent in the front of the machine - I am only 130 lbs so it's not like I have alot of body weight going against the machine either, it's just cheaply made. My previous Maytag, was made better, quieter, user friendly, and much cheaper. Honestly, I wish I could say that I was excited about this product. I am just hoping it lasts as long as my other Maytag Washer (11 years at 3 loads a day), I certainly have my doubts and that is why I recommend purchasing an extended warranty on this product.

Best WASHER/DRYER EVER!
We wash a ton of clothes and never get behind with this machine. Best washer ever. Great features.
Great machine, great capacity.
I need a high efficiency washer to wash all the sheets and gowns and stuff I use in my one person (me) physio practice out of my home. The capacity allows me to do it all in 2 loads instead of 4 or 5. It does so well I even put in our household clothes with work stuff as well. My only problem is that I am a little short. A nice handle to grab the stuff (like socks) that are in the bottom would be great, I am using a padded coat hanger, and a willing husband when I can't find the coat hanger. At first I still had residue on the sheets but then learned about the power rinse and that seems to have cleaned that up nicely. I really love this machine and as it is my first Maytag anything, I think I might look at Maytag for any new appliance I need in the future.
Incredible features, looks and works great
from Bolingbrook, IL
Love all of the detailed features and options available to fine tune your wash if needed. Machine looks great, is solid, very quiet and does an excellent job.
We purchased our washer/dryer in May with our new home. So far I've been very happy with them. They look great, have a large capacity and run smoothly and quietly. We've even washed our queen comforter in there and it's been great.
This product does not use enough water to clean its self
It cleans clothes well but does not clean and dry its self. The tendencies to smell and mildew is very undiserable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

THIS PRODUCT IS EXCELLENT
from ONTARIO, CANADA
IT WASHES LOAD AFTER LOAD AFTER LOAD AND DOESN'T MISS A BEAT. THE AMOUNT OF WATER SAVED IS TREMENDOUS. IT FITS PLENTY OF CLOTHING AND USES MINIMAL DETERGENT. AND IT CLEANS ITSELF......WHAT MORE CAN YOU ASK FOR !!!
this product has good features
from Montreal, Quebec
This machine is good however it has to be full to work quietly. if there are any empty areas then the machine will bang and sound terrible. make sure you are always doing a full load.
