    Excited about the warranty Maytag has to offer. I love this washer/dryer combo so far. I can fit a LOT of clothes in there. I thought the overnight wash and dry option would be for more clothing (it's really just for one or two items) but this is really helpful if you are in a pinch and need something washed and dried to wear the next day - especially us busy moms! Lots of options on this washer. Really like that you can add the soap once and it's good for 12 loads. Lots of automatic options that take care of the laundry for you. Took me a little time to get accustomed to all the options. It is very easy to accidentally brush against the machine though and change settings. I have mine stacked so my options sometimes get changed when moving my wet clothes up to the dryer. Love the look and feel of the dial and the buttons though. I like the "music" the buttons make too. Although sometimes they are a little loud and I need to turn it off if the kids are sleeping. This washer even tells you when to run the clean cycle, which I like.

    We did all the research and spent a ton of money on this product. Consumer reports rated it number one and we trusted their ratings. Unfortunately we could have saved a thousand dollars and been happier with several other models including the Kenmore Elite. I guess it boils down to preference and performance. There aren't as many wash settings as my 8 year old Kenmore Elite had, we sold our house and left the set there. We have had this set for 3 months now. We didn't have a chance to check out the Maytag in person because it was special order. When it arrived the dryer didn't work after the first load. It was very frustrating waiting first for a long shipping/delivery process then waiting again for a repair man for a supposedly awesome machine. The dryer works now but often doesn't respond right away to touch unless I turn it on and off a few times. A few things that I don't like are, there isn't a quick wash setting for small loads like I had before so laundry takes longer than it did before. And there isn't a setting for cold wash like I almost always use nor a setting that I can just select that is just right. I always select normal and change the heat, change the soiled level...which I don't really see it make any difference. I really liked how much thought went into the settings on my Kenmore, there was a whites setting, denim, quick wash and delicates among others. Basically it is missing key features that I like to use and has added features that I never use. I initially liked the soft water option and the way I can pour a large amount of detergent in at once for several loads, but now I am prompted to add more detergent every 4-5 loads no matter how big or small they are, so I am wondering if the machine is weighing the load and if detergent is really being used efficiently or not. The dryer steam mode didn't get out wrinkles like I had hoped it would either. The design is ok, I can see how Maytag was trying to be different with the square door, but it doesn't really do anything for me. I would have liked the touch functionality of the machine but mine is not sensitive enough to touch and it's frustrating trying to get it to register my selections. I would have liked to feel like my money was well spent but I was left feeling like I wasted money and I could have spent less to get what I wanted. However, the things I like about the machine are, number one capacity. There is a machine out there with larger capacity, but this one is big enough for me. I can wash all my king size bedding in one load. The machine is very quiet and doesn't rattle around like other machines I have had, that was really important to me and that part lived up to the reviews. The clothes are getting clean and I feel like the machine is pretty gentle on fabrics. I also like the dryer wrinkle free mode that keeps spinning with heat periodically after the load is done to keep things from wrinkling. All in all we purchased a Maytag for the brand and reliability that is usually attached to it, but my machines don't operate the way they were intended as far as the buttons and we have already had it repaired once. So we are concerned that we spent too much for something that won't last. If we break down the money we paid over an 8 year period (the length of time we owned a Kenmore Elite, that still works well) we will be paying almost $400 per year for the privilege of owning a Maytag, that we are not super pleased with.

    I love that I can put 12 loads of laundry detergent in and the machine figures out how much to use. Smart. The machine really extracts water well so need a lot less drying time. Beautiful machine.

      Comments about Maytag Maxima XL Granite Front Load Washer:

      I read reviews on this washer online. One of the concerns were the noise level. We have owned this unit for about 9 months now and I have no problems or concerns. This washer performs great. The noise level is what I would consider normal. I would recommend this unit to anyone that is looking for a quality washer.

          Comments about Maytag Maxima XL Granite Front Load Washer:

          Although features and performance are fine, this washer and it's associated dryer are a few inches deeper than my previous washer. This fact, along with the placement of the touch controls on the very front of the chassis, result in frequent accidental activation of the controls by passers-by or those who are trying to reach cabinets above the washer and dryer. This is an extremely annoying. Don't buy this as a replacement unless you have plenty of room in front of your existing appliance and don't have cabinets above it.

                      I never thought I would be impressed by a washing machine. Been washing stuff for years. Had top loaders and a top load front loader. This washer is impressive. It’s capacity is huge. You load the automatic soap dispenser and it was two months before we had to add more soap!! When we started to use the super clean cycle with bleach it does a MUCH better job than when we used to soak stained items in a bucket for days. The machine is quiet, too quiet if anything because we have to be close to hear the end of cycle alarm. Our kitchen is right next to the laundry room and we hardly hear the washer at all. This is the most impressive cleaning appliance that I have ever used or owned.

                          Had Maytag Atlantis top load washer and dryer suite for over 20 years and was satisfied with the performance. Never once had a problem, but remodeled and decided on newer more efficient washer. Did lots of research and there are a lot of good competitive front load washers on the market, but based on the previous performance of my Maytag Atlantis Suite and reviews to include Consumer Report, rating #1 opted to spend the extra money and purchase the Washer Dryer Suite from Costco (vs. Whirlpool Duet Suite, same manufacture). Have had the set for three (3) months and performance has been outstanding. There still is the inherent issue of water collecting in the door seal upon completion of the wash that requires the door being left open along with the soap/bleach/fabric softener drawer to air dry. (This is common in all front load washers from my research and just something you live with). Very efficient and quiet. Purchased the pedestals for the Washer and Dryer and they provide the perfect height for loading and unloading. Unfortunately, the drawers (both) are not used for anything, so they are an extra expense, but still worth it for the proper height. No complaints and am completely satisfied. Highly recommend!
