I bought this Maytag November 2013 when my first Maytag died after 22 years of faithful service. I always wanted a front-loader, but my repairman (whom I've trusted implicitly for the last 9 years) recommended against it (his wife has one and he's constantly fixing the seals on it). It took a leap of faith to get used to the low water usage, but I'm okay with it now. The clothes come out just as clean as with a fully filled bin (I use HE SA-8 liquid detergent). I also like the no-agitator feature - allows for more clothes, but I STILL can't fit a double bed comforter inside, as is advertised. I don't like using the Downy ball for fabric softener. It doesn't fully drain, so if you pick up something that it happens to be wrapped up in and the ball is upside down, it will drain out on your clean clothes. I'd rather they'd put in a softener dispenser next to the bleach dispenser. I don't like the locking lid feature, as I'm constantly finding more stuff to drop in after the cycle has already started. The washer allows you to interrupt the cycle initially, but after one or two times doing so, then it will just stop. When it's spinning it's a bit loud, though not obnoxious. The laundry room is on the 2nd floor (near the bedrooms), so if we do laundry at night, we have to close the door. In 2012 I bought the matching dryer ($627) and, overall, am very happy with the set. I live just north of Kansas City on the Kansas side and, with removal of the old washer, delivery and installation of the new washer and tax, I paid $648.00.

I have owned many Maytags but this one really let us down. I cannot wash one set of sheets or towels at a time, the machine continually stops and has to be restarted. It is supposed to be EPA compliant, which is possibly the problem. If the machine stops for more than 10 minutes, you have to restart from the beginning. Since I don't babysit my washes, that happens more than not. Even on very small washes which I carefully distribute evenly, it stops and stops. Consequently, I know I'm using more water. Don't even try to wash a blanket or bath mats, now those have to go to a commercial Laundromat. Sometimes when I pull a finished load out, the clothes are not even completely wet! Because of the problems, I am washing extremely small loads and I am doing more laundry than ever! My husband and I "high five" each other if ever there is a load that goes all the way through the first time. I don't know if this is Maytag or the EPA, but I am not happy and I typically love Maytags!

from kingman kansas
Since I have had this machine, my clothes are much brighter and since it takes less water to clean them, I am saving on water & electricity bill.
from three rivers Mi
I love all the selections it has. and so easy to use and my clothes come out so clean.
Fantastic Value for Price
This is my first washing machine purchase and I could not be more pleased with this unit. It is economical in use, (less water and soap required) and it does a fantastic job. I would recommend this machine for family washing jobs which are light and I would purchase this machine again.
should have read reviews before purchasing
By washer woman
from Central Ma.
I find it hard to describe how much I hate this washer. It takes forever to do a load of wash and it isn't even clean most of the time and yes, I have read the manual cover to cover. I like to hang my wash outside to dry, but clothes come out so wrinkled and linty that they need to be dried in the dryer even on the "wrinkle control" setting. We have had this washer for 9 months and it is not working right on most settings (it just stops midcycle and unlocks) but I don't think I want to pay to have it fixed, even if it is still under the warranty--I just want it taken away and replaced with a decent washer with an agitator..the "old fashioned kind."
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not too happy with the cleanliness of clothes...agitator cleaned soiled clothes better....trying another detergent...

This is a great machine. The clothes get really clean and we use less water and detergent. Cuts drying time too. I highly recommend it.
