I had to replace a front loader (not Maytag) that failed after about 7 years. I liked the idea of a HE machine that uses less water so when I found out that Maytag made a top loader that is HE, I investigated. It is very well made, quiet in operation and very efficient. It has numerous settings to customize the type of load you want to do. My appliance repair guy recommended Maytag when my other washer failed, I'm glad I listened to that advice!

From day one this washer has had a loud agitation/wash cycle. The washer is in the basement and I can hear it two levels up to my bedroom when it's on that cycle, which makes me worry about whether or not the bearings are already wearing out. I base my worries on other reviews I've read where there have been reports of bearings wearing out after only two years. I hope we're not headed in that direction. If so, I will never buy a Maytag product again.

Also, I'm disappointed that there is no spin-only cycle. Why would you design a washer that didn't have that option?

Comercial Technology?

By 

from Wichita KS

Comments about Maytag Bravos Granite Top Load Steam Washer:

We have had this washer for 2 years. We love the water savings and efficiency. BUT This is NOT Commercial technology, as we just paid $200 for repair on the washer. Reported a Loose Nut caused it. Has Maytag not heard of Locktight or even a nylon insert Locknut? If the washer was actually in a Commercial setting, It would have broke down in 60 days! There are only 2 people using this machine, I would hate to think how often a family with children would need repairs!

I bought this about four months ago, prior to that I had an LG front loader. They both clean the clothes about the same but the difference is that there is no moldy/mildew smell :-)

Items seem to ball up.

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Bravos Granite Top Load Steam Washer:

We find that when a sheet is washed along with other items, the sheet seems to rap around the other items making a big ball. We question if the items inside this ball are getting as clean as they should.
