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!

Comment on this review
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.

Large capacity! Lots of settings for different temps, water levels and speed.
from Clovis, NM
The first week we used the washer a burning electric smell started coming from it. I thought maybe since it was new, but no. I really thought the washer was going to catch fire. I ended up taking it back to the store we bought it from for a refund. I did however like the washer other than the burning smell. It has a huge tub for washing towels or blankets. It was noisy and the senor was loud.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Best Washer Ever
from South Burlington, VT
As the mother of three grown children, I have done more than my share of laundry over the years. My new Maytag washer is, without a doubt, the best washer I have ever used. It is so gentle on the clothes yet cleans them so thoroughly. It's a miracle washer! I love it!

We bought this to replace our recently broken washer. It has performed very well and was very much worth the money.
so happy with performance
from RUSSELLS POINT, OH
I BOUGHT MY WASHER AFTER REVIEWING QUITE A FEW. THIS WASHER IS SO GREAT. MY CLOTHES ARE CLEANER AND WHEN I USE WRINKLE FREE THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I GET. MY UTILITIES HAVE NOT INCREASED BUT DECREASED. I WANT AS SOON AS I CAN GET THE DRYER TO MATCH. I TELL ALL MY FRIENDS WHAT A GREAT MACHINE IT IS. IT RUNS VERY QUIETLY.I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS WASHER TO EVERYBODY.MRS. JOHN WHITE (BARBARA)

The washer cleans the clothes so good, but it makes a lot noise
first machine without an agitator
from Phoenix AZ
I bought this washing machine for my new house some time ago. I just installed it last month. When I opened up the machine I did not see an agitator. I got out the book and read up on this machine. I was pleasantly surprised after my first use of the machine. It is quiet, self balancing...no more dancing washing machine. I also noticed that my clothes came out much cleaner without using much water. Very happy with this machine.
