I've had a traditional top loading washing machine with an agitator all my life. I went out on a limb to get the front loader just because I thought I should get with the times. Much to my surprise considering all kinds of mixed reviews, I could not be happier. It cleans great, it is super quiet, it has great capacity, it is easy to operate even though there are lots of choices for settings - no complaints at all. It is a bit pricey, but I have always loved Maytag and thought they were worth the premium price tag. This is no exception.

We moved recently and purchased a new washer /dryer set. Unfortunately, they have not lived up to their hype. We have trouble with temperature control for drying but not shrinking clothes washed and dryed previously. The lint collection in the washer rubber seal and around the door has been quite unexpected. We need to clean it after practically every wash. The dryer also has large collections of lint around the door and needs to be cleaned off often. Also, the lint has a very large build up at the vent outside. We recently shortened the distance to the outside and used firm, smooth piping and it still has a large build up of lint. I am not a big fan of these so called high tech items.

Comments about Maytag Maxima White Front Load Steam Washer:
Included Afresh cleaning tablet caused excessive suds to leak out approx. 2 cups of water/suds on floor. Recommend watching carfully first time cleaning drum after recommended 30 washes. Can use bleach rather than Afresh tablets. Cleans very well using a minimum of water. The washer will not spin up to high speed if the load is unbalanced. It will repeatedly try to rebalance by itself but, you may have to move items in drum to redistribute items. This is a good safety measure to prevent the washer spinning itself apart due to an unbalanced load. I like the internal light to be able to monitor the wash progress. I am very happy with my purchase after seven months of use. I use HE powder and bleach.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was prompt and arrived in good condition. The delivery company unboxed it, removed the transportation screws, and brought it inside my house. I did not use customer service other than to report the leaking caused by the Afresh tablet.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Maytag Maxima XL Granite Front Load Steam Washer:
Cleans large or small load equally well, runs quietly. Wish I could turn the volume of the buzzer higher
I like the Maytag products, but this takes some getting used to.
from Monroe, WA
I really wanted a simple washer that would last like a Maytag. I had to settle for this, which has way more features and electronics than I would like. I've been told by salesmen that these will just not last like my old Maytags, so I can't expect that. Loads can take a very long time to wash (over double my old washer), but the machine seems much more water efficient. We also have to leave the door open to stop the inside from smelling.
from Edmond, OK
This washer out performs my 20 year-old washer many times over. I had no expectations, as some of our newer appliances do not perform as well as older models; however, I was very pleasantly surprised with the ease of functionality and quietness of the unit. It also does a super job in getting the clothes clean and fresh. Actually, doing laundry is no longer a chore!
All the bells and whistles I was looking for.
from Rochester, NY
So excited about my new washer. Embarrassed to say I'm obsessed with the sounds it makes!
the product is working very well
We did an extensive search prior to purchase this product , particularly we reviewed the most recent issue of Consumer report , that gave very good rating. The product is meeting our expectations and it's working well so far. The only feature missing in our product is the quick wash program. The control panel has a screen that can go off with a very light touch and when you pass by might inadvertently turn on the washer. It would be nice to have a way to lock the door slightly open when the washer is off.
Excellent quality and engineering
from Gresham, OR
The features are awesome, capable to clean any type of dirty clothes. The control panel is easy to understand and program. The only negative is the inability to switch which direction the door opens. If I had known that was the case, I would have installed differently.
from Central Coast CA
It is so quiet, I find myself checking to see if it is still on. Haven't been able to fill it completely yet, but I'm sure my king-sized comforter will fit without any trouble. Also LOVE the bedding cycle - no more tangled sheets!!
Maytag has outdone itself with this washer.
from Mesquite, NV
This washer is sensational. The cycles clean as explained in the booklet that comes with it and my favorite feature is its large capacity. I even washed my king size quilt and shams in it and it did a great job with room to spare inside the drum. I also like the sanitize, power wash and allergen cycles. The only drawback is it is a little noisier than I expected but I can live with that since it does such a great job. I would recommend this to anyone who really wants a quality washer. I have had Maytags for years and so far I have never been disappointed.
I have this washer located on the second floor off of the kitchen. With the laundry closet doors closed you can barely notice the machine is running. It cleans clothes very well and the normal cycle at med soil level generally only takes 45 to 50 min. The clothes are clean and smell fresh. It also cuts down the drying time in half compared to my prior top load conventional washer. Only complaint is buttons are sensitve so if im reaching over the machine I can easily turn machine off or change a setting. Has all the features you would ever need and cleans normal loads, delicates, and bedding all very well.
