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.

                    Bought this unit as a floor unit at lowes, after 6 months the motor stopped working and the door wouldnt open. The unit only has a 1 year warranty---pretty bad for a commercial type unit that is $1200.
                    My dell printer has a 3 tr warranty and two days ago they had a tech out, put new parts in, that didnt work, so they next day a NEW $800 printer---free to me. (Maybe dell should make washers--Id buy one). If i tag pros below and chose quiet---its because it rarely makes a sound because it wont start....lol Guess you shouldn't have asked me for a review......

                        We like our front load washer. It is a little challenging to get to the clothes (the pedestal, sold separately, was pretty spendy so we didn't buy it) but it is quiet fast and apparently efficiently.

                          This is a fantastic washer that gets items clean with a minimal amount of water. I've seen our water bill go down, and have used much less detergent since purchasing this washing machine.

                                      Growing up and throughout my life I never used a front load washer and dryer until my last apartment, which I rented. I liked the change and said to myself that whenever i bought my first place i would buy front loaders. I ended up buying my first house one year ago this week and purchased all new appliances, including a washer and dryer. There were many choices to choose from but I ended up buying the Maytag front loaders I currently have. I love them! They are gray and stainless steel and have a nice design. Both my washer and dryer fit a good amount of clothing, seem to do a good job washing and are quiet in the process. It's been almost one year that I've owned my pair and I usually do several loads a week and I don't mind doing laundry these days. I would recommend the Maytag models I have to anyone!
