This washer operates differently than my previous top-loaders. It doesn't use much water or soap, so it makes me think it's not working right, but the clothes come out nice, fresh, and clean. The absolute best part is that my 2 and 3 year-old grandkids LOVE pulling up chairs and watching through the glass top the laundry churning and going round and round. They enjoy the "music" and lights that the power and selection buttons make. Best money I ever spent!!

After one month of ownership, I'm so fed up and disappointed with this machine! I did lots of research and thought it was going to be an amazing machine to replace our fabulous 29 year-old Maytag that finally died. Initially, it seemed to work okay with light-colored clothing, but when it came to navy work pants and other dark clothes, it is a total loser! I washed them 2 times and used extra rinse cycles, but they still came out covered with loose dirt that was redeposited all over them during the spin cycle. I had to brush the dirt off and wipe the pants down with a clean damp towel to remove the deposits. The towel was filthy afterwards! How can they say that this machine is good? I even cleaned the machine with bleach as recommended for each month, but that made no difference in the performance. There just simply isn't enough water going into each wash to carry away the dirt. And there's no filter for the dirt either. Also, the spin cycle may remove most all the water, but the clothes are all wrinkled afterwards! I have to set the spin cycle to low just to keep the wrinkles down and then I have to fluff the clothes in a hot dryer for 5 minutes before hanging them or else I'd have to iron everything. (Yes, we prefer to hang our laundry to save on energy). I want my money back and a regular old fashioned washer again that actually cleans the clothes!

Worst Washer I've owned
from Gilbert, AZ
Comments about Maytag Bravos White Top Load Steam Washer:
We've had this washer/dryer set for almost a year. It replaced an aging front loader. This washer does not clean clothes well. Additionally it wads things like sheets into balls. Clothes come out twisted in knots. When washing large blankets there is always a section like a tire on top of the blanket that shows lint and dirt and does not come clean. The washer also leaks. When the technician came to look at the washer he said it was because the agitation is throwing water over the top of the tub. We've tolerated it for a year, but can't stand it any longer and are going back to a front loader.DO NOT BUY THIS WASHER!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

So sorry I bought this washer...
I bought the Maytag Bravos XL washer and dryer approximately six months ago to replace my aging Whirlpool front loader set. While the dryer seems to work ok, I couldn't be more disappointed with the washer. After looking over the reviews I realize there are others who are having the same problems. The cycles take too long only to end up with dirty clothes that have to be run again. My black clothes have a streaky, white residue left on them after washing, my son's work clothes are still filthy and my grandson's baseball uniform has to be practically washed clean by hand before washing it in the machine or it has to be washed twice to get dirt and grass stains out and this is after pre treating the stains. Most of the dirt settles in all the other clothes in the load and they have to be re-washed. I've tried to wash sheets on the sheet cycle only to find halfway through the wash they're still dry on the top. Many loads end up a tangled mess. I'm so disgusted that I spent so much money on this washer and I'm going to replace it as soon as I can. If you have any really dirty clothes to wash you'd better think twice before buying this washer.

this high efficiency machine really gets the soap out during the rinse cycle. Need to use the right amount of soap for the size of the load. Dispenser adds the fabric softener at the right time during the rinse cycle. Clothes seem much cleaner.
It thinks for itself!

I bought this washer about a month ago. I'm still in awe of all the different cycles/washes/features. Just push a button and it knows just what to do!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

bought washer about 3 weeks ago. It is quieter than my last washer and runs more efficient.

I really like my new washing machine! I love the fact that I can see the clothes while they're washing. It's very quiet, and seems to do a decent job of getting the clothes clean. We were told that using the "bulky" setting would allow the machine to use more water, so this is what we use almost always. But, I still think it could use more. Somehow, without the center post, this machine gets the clothes more tangled up with each other. But, I'm still very happy with this purchase.

Bought this about 6 weeks ago and am very happy. Very quiet and doesn't use much water. Chime tones are annoying but other than that satisfied.

I bought to replace a 20 year old Maytag. Pleased with the way it performs and love the steam cycle.

I purchased this three months ago and I couldn't be happier with it. It has great capacity and is very quiet.
