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!

No unessary frill Washing
Comments about Maytag White Top Loading Washer:
Low cost laundry solution for those that want a basic effiecient method of doing their laundry especially in a condo setting and for those living on their own. It has the added bonus of limiting future repair costs because of it's basic design and lack of exotic features. The one drawback is it's noisy spin cycle which is, however, not too long in duration.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had this product for about a month. I am satisfied.
from Milton, FL
We bought this machine a month ago, and we were extremely impressed with the quality of performance in how well it cleans, how much less water remains iin the clothes and how quietly it operates. The Maytag name is one we've always respected, but this is our first purchase of this brand, and I was very pleased with the quality workmanship of the product. The warranty was easy to sign-up for and increased our confidence in our expectations of hassle-free ownership.
We've had our new washer now for 8 months and really like it. The sensor gages how much water to use, so it's very efficient, quiet, and does a nice job. We chose the larger load capacity and are thankful we did. Thanks!
maytag washer review
By bobby the twin
from cedar grove nj
this is one of the best purchases in household appliances I ever made
after 6 weeks, I am in love with this washer.! It has no agitator, so my clothes come out beautifully clean without any stress or stretching.
from mentor, ohio
Took a while to get used to putting detergent in first. Now I have a slime like grease coming out from the main selector dial on almost every load.Not easy to add something with the lid lock feature. Is this to child proof?DOES a great job of cleaning though.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Very happy with my purchase. Love everything about this washer.
My Maytag is the best machine I ever invested in!
