    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.

          Overall, the product is satisfactory; however the overnight cycle does not dry. This was the main reason I purchased and paid the price I did, so I am disappointed I did not go with the less expensive model with no overnight wash/dry cycle.

              Comments about Maytag Maxima XL Granite Front Load Washer:

              I am happy with our choice of this washer. I love the automated detergent dispenser. Overall it is great. I have two complaints. First, is that the cold water cycle takes a long time. When you add an extra rinse the time is 1:49. A long time for a wash. So, I am learning to adapt. The washer (and dryer) both come on automatically when you open the door and it makes a loud beep. I put my work out clothes in the washer and then wait for more so I have a full load. So, when I open the door to put them in, I have to turn off the washer until I get a full load. I don't know if there is a way to disable this feature.

                  We are extremely satisfied with our new washer by Maytag. We started out many years ago as Maytag customers but the last time we needed a laundry suite we tried another brand. What a waste of money that was! Quality is obvious just looking at the design but when you start using it and realize how quiet it is you'll be proud of your great purchase!

                      I've only ever purchased Maytag washers in the past and this machine has so far lived up to the expectations I had for it. Granted that much has changed with Maytag since purchasing my last machine in the early 90's. Even with those changes I still had high hopes for it and couldn't be more pleased. I had reservations about buying a high effiency front load washer but once I started using it I found that just doing a little clean up of the machine at the end of several wash cycles has been all that's needed to make sure it stays clean. The extra attention paid in design to the door area and the seals provide ample protection against a leaky door which I had read might be a problem. The extra cycles and features with this machine are exactly as described and they work great. Probably the best unexpected feature so far has got to be the drum light. It's odd, but being able to see inside the drum after a cycle helps when moving out laundry and also with cleaning the drum.

                          The features on this machine are excellent. I only gave it 4 stars for sound not because it is loud, in fact it is very quiet The alarm that tells you your load is finished is too soft. This is my only complaint. I would recommend this machine to anyone especially with a large family as it has a very large capacity. Thanks, Maytag!

                            Love everything about this washer. I especially like the reminder to clean it. My previous washer was the Neptune and the smell was hard to get rid of. This one is a serious improvement on all counts. We live on a farm and the washer cleans the dirtiest clothes so well.

                                I can fit so much in my new machine. It does a wonderful job cleaning and the dispenser for the cleaning liquid is very convenient. It automatically disperses the clothing in such a way that they don't tangle and get the machine rumbling like my old washer. When the cycle is done the clothes have so little water left in them. Only negative is a normal cycle takes a while, almost an hour.
