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,

VS

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!

    Comments about Maytag Bravos White Top Load Steam 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.

        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.

        Service and delivery comments:

        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.

            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).

                After reading some reviews I wondered if I was making the right choice to go with Bravos. One load finished and I am certain that I did make the right choice. Yes, it is higher than my previous Maytag but, I use it as a stretching session. The larger capacity is wonderful for bulky items like bath mats and pillows. The noise level is so much lower that I had to check to see if it was running. I love all the specific settings to get my wash just right! My clothes are coming out cleaner and softer. My sheets have never felt so good! And now my washer is cleaner too with the special clean cycle! Thank you Maytag for stepping up to the challenge to produce a better product. I am one happy customer.

                      After using a front loader for years wanted to go back to the top loader and am very happy with the performance of this top loader. The machine is quiet and no problems with balance. I have not used all the features yet, only having the machine for a few months, but I look forward to trying them all.

                        This washer performs well overall. It can get off balance at times with heavy loads. Otherwise it washes clothes clean, my other washer didn't do that as well(samsung) that's why I chose to go with Maytag again. The cycles it goes through can be a little loud at times, or it sounds like a truck coming up the road. Otherwise I would recommend it, if there is a quieter model out there someone let me know.
