My husband and I moved into a new home that didn't come with a washer and dryer so we had to do a lot of research before we decided on the Maytag® 4.8 cu. ft. Bravos XL® HE Top Load Washer with Steam. Originally we had wanted a front load washer because of their performance reputation. However, the "laundry closet" we had to work with would not have accommodated a front load washer. As it turns out this top load washer rocks! It has a large capacity, thoroughly cleans our clothes, and has a variety of features that makes the the time I spend doing laundry more efficient. I have to admit at first I felt like we were settling especially after reading some of the mixed reviews for this specific model. One review in particular addressed some of the negative reviews I had read and raved about the overall performance but the reviewer did caution to read the manual before starting to use it. Confession: I did NOT read the manual for my first load and my clothes ended up in knots! I used the wrong cycle setting and I dumped in my clothes like I use to with my old washer (exactly what the manual tells you not to do). I started to worry and doubted our choice but then I read the manual and my second load was perfectly clean and knot free! Putting the clothes in small bundles around and away from the agitator like the manual advises actually works. Also using the right cycle setting helped. The fact that my clothes weren't in knots the second time around tells me that the washer actually has specific agitation settings and speeds for different types of clothes/garments. These cycle settings not only protect the integrity of our clothes but also help us save energy. What more can you ask for in a washer? The only negative feedback I have about the washer is that it is a little pricey but we're talking about an appliance that will last for a long time and is energy efficient. I highly recommend this washer and I would even go as far as to say that it is on par with those front loader washers everybody raves about. Happy Laundering,

I have had my machine for several months now and continue to try to find something good about it. I was excited about getting this machine. What a mistake! In order to get clothes clean you must deep water soak for 30+ minutes before washing. THEN, if you don't want your clothes to be shredded and twisted into knots, the only cycle you can use is the delicate, TWICE. I put in a load of 4 pair of jeans. When finished, I had to literally untie them from the knot the washer had twisted them into. Oh, to get them clean, you must wash with extra rinse, and wash again with no soap to get the soap out. I have never had to iron t-shirts or jeans before this washer and the wrinkles that it puts in the jeans never really iron out unless I heavy starch them. I now have to IRON EVERYTHING and hand wash my dress clothes or send them to the dry cleaners if I don't want them torn to bits! It takes literally 2 days to do the laundry that I use to get done in 4 hours. Economical? HA! I use more water and more electricity and more time than ever before! JUST SAY NO!

Outstanding Quality and Performance!!!
from Lake Villa, IL
I use my Maytag washer at least once a day. The quality and performance are outstanding. My clothes are cleaner and fresher than the previous washer I owned. In all honesty, I'm pleased beyond words; this is the best washer I've ever owned! So far, I have absolutely no complaints regarding this Maytag washer.
The delivery service was prompt, very courteous and professional. The delivery team was Bob and Mike. In the future, I plan on requesting the delivery team of Bob and Mike because they were outstanding!!! Yes ... My Maytag washer arrived in excellent condition! Customer service was extremely helpful, as well as courteous and professional. I spoke to Leanne Szczepanski in your Customer Service Department.
That's why we like Maytag

Best... Washer... Ever!
By EPL fan
from Naperville, IL
This has got to be the quietest & fastest washing machine ever built. The spin is so fast, yet so balanced everytime that the machine doesn't even shake or move. This puts our old GE front-load washer to shame!
Delivery is professional and quick (as always with ABT).
Exactly what we expected--no bad surprises
from Montgomery, AL
Steam feature works great as do all the other settings.
This product has wonderful features.
from Hutchinson, KS
This is the first direct drive washer I have had. It. Is. Wonderful! the sound levels compared to a belt drive are literally unheard. I love the simple settings, quite load complete signal, and the cleaning performance.
Lot better than Samsung
from DFW Texas
This washer and matching dryer was designed very well. I think tne raised agitator fins help clean and move the clothes around whereas the competitors does not. Cleans clotnes well and not rough on tnem either.
this is a lovely set
from MOUNT SHASTA, CA
The one thing that I do really miss is an option to repeat a spin cycle. This is useful for towels and blankets. I forgot to do an extra rinse on a cover for a foam mattress and the dirt did not rinse out properly. It has a plasticized backing so I am sure that contributes to the issue but the cover was listed as machine washable. I did not select the extra rinse cycle so that may have mad a difference

I highly recommend this washer!
The primary qualities I look for in a washing machine are (1) large capacity (2) a quick wash option because most of my loads are lightly soiled (3) ease of use. Of course, it goes without saying that I want dependability and quality. I have bought several sets of Maytags for myself and children over the years and always been pleased. After having a Maytag front loader which is still working well after 14 years in my home, I bought this machine for my second house. Even though it has many options which I thought I didn't need at this point in my life, I have enjoyed using all the different features. For anyone who has a family and lots of laundry, this machine would be a life saver. Signed: A mom with 4 boys and husband that produced enough dirty clothes to make me sit in the laundry room and cry.
