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!

Comments about Maytag White Top Loading Washer:
This machine worked pretty good for the first year. It suddenly started cycling over and over. I looked on the internet and found out this is common. Not the Maytag reliability I paid for.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Solid Machine with new technology
By Bob K
from Washington, N.J. 07882
We like this washer but after 18 months, it started to make a terrible noise. Research on internet revealed a problem with a part of the new technology...Not major just a problem. Called service, they fixed it right away. They even explained what they were fixing and why. Wonderful service..Bought extended warranty...
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the new design, it feels like our laundry is cleaner than ever before. The machine is attractive and easy to keep clean.
Haven't had any issues. Way easier to use then front loaders.
Maytag 3.8 cu ft HE Top Load Washer
from Las Vegas, NV
The washer cleans clothes impeccably but it is very loud.
Try it, you'll like it
from Lombard IL
I bought my home with a brand new Maytag washer included. First washer I've ever owned with the fountain impeller. Takes some getting used to but it really works. If you're in the market for a washer you can't go wrong with this one.
I have had issues with this machine due to detergent residue marks being left on clothing. Nothing seems to help, including using the large power load, etc. where more water is added. Despite using sometimes only a tablespoon of liquid detergent, it still remains.
Not Happy !
from Cato, New York
Since I have owned this machine, it has not worked properly. Has never finished a complete cycle. Get's to rinse cycle and then goes back to wash. You have to manually set to rinse and drain then it will finish. Had service repair, look at machine, and he had to calibrate the machine via the control panel and he indicated that is all he can do. Did another load of wash and machine still did not work properly. Now I am told parts have to be ordered. I believe this machine is computerized, not sure how that is going to work. Would not recommend this product to anyone.

I was skeptical at first to buy a washer without a propeller but boy was I convinced!! Super water effiency and power washing capabilities
I am enjoying my washer. I have not had any problems like I read in other reviews. I made sure it was level before I started my first load. It washes and rinses the clothes clean. I have used Maytag products in the past and loved them. I knew I made the right choice when a store rep and the delivery driver made similar comments to me regarding these machines. I am very happy I made this purchase, if you level it, load it right, and make sure to use soaps for a He washer (i make my own) you will enjoy this machine.
