We have had this washer for about 3 months, and we absolutely love it. It was replacing a ten-year-old front-loader that finally died. This one holds a lot more clothes, so we can do less loads. Plus, it uses about half the water anyway which means we use about 1/4 of the water that we previously used. That is very important to us, since we are on a well and septic system. But just as important is that it also cleans the clothes better than we've ever seen! Amazing technology; I was a skeptic at first, but it really works! I can't really speak to the durability yet, but everything seems well made and sturdy. I know these washers are more expensive than some other models, but definitely seems worth it so far.

I like this system. However there are a few minor changes that I would've preferred. For example, the single dose dispenser. It is very inconvenient that the detergent can only be added after the load is in and the door is closed. Other machines have a tray that dispenses during the cycle, like the optimal dose does. Also, the wait time after the cycle begins is NOT 2 minutes, as stated in the manual. It is at least 8 minutes. This seems excessive.

Washer water fill

Comments about Maytag Maxima X Granite Front Load Steam Washer:
Purchased this washer in November 2016. It was delivered in early December. I have issues with the amount of water it uses to wash the clothes. After using the normal cycle with it set on a normal soil level I ran a 8 lb. load of clothes thru the machine. It used a total of 9.75 gallons including the water left in the clothes after the spin cycle. After the wash I ran it thru the short cycle and recovered the first pump out. The water was very dirty and soapy. The washer does not clean or rinse the clothes well in the normal cycle. I have had two different service companies out and both have said just use the heavy soil or powerwash cycle. The service techs did not perform any tests to determine if it was filling correctly. They both said that the washer did not show any error codes so it must be working correctly. Neither company could tell me how much water should be in the tub upon initial fill. Maytag is unwilling to provide me with how much water should be in the tub after the initial fill. Based upon the published standard for this machine it should use a weighed average of 15 gallons per wash. Mine does not.

I bought this washer to replace my 2012 maytag maxima which only lasted 5 years. I hope this one last longer. I do love the way it cleans my clothes.
Love This Washer!
from Yucca Valley, CA
I bought this washer to replace an existing agitator model in a home I recently purchased. I owned a front loader in my previous home and was delighted to find this Maytag model, which was very similar but more advanced technically.
