Maytag Performance Series 3.5 Cu.Ft. Granite Front Load Washer, Model MHWE251YG

Features:

Best Cleaning in its Class Enabled by PowerWash® Cycle
Enabled by the Power Wash cycle, this washer provides the best cleaning in its class.

PowerWash® Cycle
Extra cleaning action and a thorough rinse power out tough stains like coffee and soda as well as ground-in mud. Select washers have a built-in water heater that delivers increased wash temperatures to ensure better soil and stain removal.

Maytag® Commercial Technology
Maxima XL™ washers bring long-lasting, commercial-grade components that you can depend on into your home. The pump impeller and corrosion-resistant springs and dampers are all built to easily handle load after load, week after week.

Advanced Vibration Control
Gap dampers and springs to minimize movement of the wash drum during spin cycle. Plus, enhanced software adjusts load distribution reducing vibration and noise.

Allergen Removal Washer Cycle
A washer cycle that has been proven to eliminate 95 percent of common allergens, such as dust mites and pet dander, from fabrics.

Reinforced, 6-Rib, commercial-grade washer belt
This washer belt features 6 grooves for enhanced grip and is reinforced with metal to provide long-lasting strength and reliability.

IntelliFill™ Water Level Sensor
Select washers use built-in sensors to detect the load size and automatically adjust water usage, which helps save resources.

Whites Cycle
Cleans loads of soiled white fabrics with the addition of bleach. An additional rinse helps to remove any remaining chlorine residue. Uses hot temperatures, fast tumbling, longer wash times and an extra-high spin speed for optimal cleaning.

Clean Washer Cycle with Affresh®
Use this cycle once a month with Affresh® washer cleaner, to eliminate odor-causing soap residue and mildew that can build up as a result of regular everyday washing. This cycle uses a higher water level and hot water to remove buildup.

Variable temperature settings
Provides wash and rinse temperature options for a variety of load types.

Selectable spin speeds
The spin speed is automatically selected based on the wash cycle chosen. However, the spin speed can be changed if necessary.

Delicate Cycle
Low-speed tumbling and a medium-speed spin help to gently clean and reduce wrinkles on special fabrics such as those labeled Permanent Press or No-iron.

Heavy-Duty Cycle
Fast speed tumbling, increased wash time and an extra-high spin speed combine to deliver excellent cleaning for heavily soiled items.

    Very pleased overall with this machine. Have noticed a reduction in monthly water bill. Am using a lot less laundry detergent. Spin cycle removes more water from load, so clothes also dry quite quickly. On the negative side, the "normal" setting takes 59 minutes to run, and other load settings take even longer. Only the rapid setting takes less time, and sometimes it does not spin the water out very well, requiring an extra "drain and spin" cycle. Occasionally, when removing clean clothes at end of cycle, I can hear water sloshing under the tub even though the clothes are well spun out. Running an extra "drain and spin" cycle after the last load apears to resolve that issue. Recommend taking time after last load to wipe dry the rubber door seal, and remove and dry the dispenser drawer to guard against mold and mildew growth. So ... Recommend this machine to those willing to invest extra time in exchange for water and energy savings.

    Right after receiving this I wasn't thrilled as it had a problem walking out into the path of my exit door into my garage. Service came out corrected but it started again within a week. My mechanical husband made a part for the legs that corrected this. It still shakes to much when it rev's/it wabbles to much as it goes to high spin. Tub not as large as my old washer, wish I would of went with the larger capacity maybe another name brand. Sorry but this was a disappointment for the $. Hind sight 20/20.

        I have the washer and dryer stacked. The washer is very loud and they shake (vibrate) like crazy on any spin cycle. Also average wash time is an hour.

          This is the first time I have a washer on the main floor of our home. I wish I could afford to move it to the basement because it is so loud and actually shakes the house on high spin, so I never use it on high. So my advice - if it's a main floor washer - get a different one.

              It fit in the space and still left room for my broom. The sound level is so much lower than the last one I had. I washed a queen size comforter but would not try a king size. I like the drawer to put the soap and stuff in. Not happy about having to buy a product to wash the inside of my washer once a month. Over all I am very well please with this washer.

                        I love this washer! It has everything I need and more! The only problem I have with it, is that small items such as socks and underwear get stuck in the bottom seal so they don't get rinsed or spun and I have to re-wash them. The sound is pretty high but I believe It's because I have the pedestals on hard wood floors. Otherwise I love this washer!!!

                            Not sure if its the water saver part or front load since this is my first front load machine but I am disapointed in the fact that if I was a large load my clothes do not get wet all the way through which leads me to believe they are not getting clean. Which means I have to wash smaller loads more often.
