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!

        I bought this washer 8 months ago and have been happy with the purchase. It has many cycle features such as sheets, bulky, and a rapid wash. It also has a soil level and spin speed options.

                    So far, I could not be happier. I am not chasing my washer around the basement!! I did get one unbalanced load but the washer simply stops and gives a signal that the load is unbalanced. Quiet, washed clothing well. I could not be happier

                                Our old washer finally went out on us. Until we bought our new Maytag we had no idea what we were missing. This washer is so quiet, and uses so much less water than our old clunker. We used to have to plan to be out of the house because the spin cycle was so loud. Our clothes come out very clean, and also I'm impressed with how dry they are at the end of the cycle. That makes a lot less work for the dryer. This new washer is so nice, and we are very thankful.

                                      So far my wife is loving the new washer. It handles all sizes of cloths with no problems at all. Our other machine would go unbalanced a lot, this machine doesn't seem to have that problem.

                                            Second day after delivery and set up by appliance store delivery team, washing machine started making a "clunking" or banging noise. It would even make the noise when I rotated the drum by hand. The Maytag repair man came out and disassembled the whole machine, both tubs, drive shaft, bearings, seal, etc. He called Maytag for advice. They told him to replace the tub and bearings. (not in stock, would have to ordered) I requested he reassemble the machine. I then called the appliance store and requested a replacement. The store was great and agreed to deliver a new machine the next day. All was good for about 3 weeks when the replacement machine started making the same noise.
                                            (the serial numbers of both washing machines are 10 numbers apart) Went back to the appliance store and requested they let us return the Maytag junk (both washer and dryer) and send us SPEED QUEEN appliances. The Speed Queen was more money but it will be worth it to get appliances that work!

                                                  This is our third Maytag washer, and it's even better than we had hoped it would be!

                                                        My wife and I had to purchase a new washer a month ago due to our 14 year old washer finally biting the dust. We reviewed several and found the Maytag Bravos to be the very best washer for the price. Im very very pleased with the washer thus far and absolutely love the fact that I no longer have to turn my TV up just to wash a load of towels.

                                                              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!
