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.

Bad quality

By

Comments about Maytag Maxima White Front Load Steam Washer:

I bought this washer 3 years ago. Within 10 months of use, the 'normal' cycle stopped working. I ended up using 'bedding' instead but now I find out that the whole control module is faulty and I have to pay full price to fix it. With labour and parts, it will be $500. I'm staying away from Maytag.

I am moving to another house and will be purchasing new appliances. They won't be Maytag.

Consumer Reports rated #1-years of use later I still agree

By

Comments about Maytag Maxima White Front Load Steam Washer:

Consumer Reports rated #1-years of use later I still agree. I bought this washer after our LG stopped working after only 4years. We love all the features offered. Originally I was a little worried with the automatic soap dispenser, but now I'm hooked. It truly calibrates the proper amount & I don't have to stop to add soap after each load. This is just a small example of one way this machine saves me time. The bedding setting keeps sheets from winding together. Now even my large blankets get fully clean at home instead of needing industrial size washers.

Comments about Maytag Maxima White Front Load Steam Washer:

I just replaced my old Maytag washer and dryer after 20 years and it was the first front loader made. I decided after having one last so long that I stayed with Maytag. I hope this matching set will last me as long, the features are much newer.

Great Quality!

By 

from California, United States

Comments about Maytag Maxima White Front Load Steam Washer:

We bought a suite in the 80's and lasted us for about 10 year before we gave away to our housekeeper. They were still in perfect condition. Then we bought GE. However, we miss Maytag. That is why we changed back to this Maxima XL. The feature I like the best is the soap compartment, which has the auto dispensing system. I fill it up and the system will dispense the right amount for each load. Therefore, I do not have to add soap for each load. Thanks for this smart design. We bought another suite for our 2nd home as well.
