    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:

                What made me decide to purchase this washer and matching drier was two fold. One, Consumer Reports reviewed as the best performance washing machine and two, the features. How many times have I forget to take the clothes out of the washer....and how many times i remember only to find them washed and smelling horrible for been left on there for a couple of days or more. Well with the circulating fan that kick on after the cycle is complete, that problem is gone. I can forget my laundry there and when i remember is dried and smelling fresh. Also the automated soap dispenser is a great way to save soap and guessing. This washer pretty much is so computerized that all i do is choose the program and let it decide water temperature, amount of soap and number of cycles, that is it. Oh one more thing, the steam cycle really removes all the stains and boost the washing on many cycles, another great feature.

                  This was the first washer that replaced our previous Maytags 26 years ago! Now we can wash towels in with regular clothing and don't have to worry about the top loader we used to have getting off balance and stopping. It's great not to have to put laundry soap in with each load, and the additional capacity is wonderful when we have guests.

                          Did a lot of research and I have been very pleased. The only option I would like is a "quick wash" for small loads. It's a plus they are assembled in Ohio.

                            I love this washer. It cleans clothes well. My only complaint is that I do not like having to leave the door open so that mold or musty smells do not develop in the washer. The door does not stay open somewhat. It only will stay open all the way.
