I haven't had this machine very long, but I am impressed by how well it performs. I bought this to replace a 34 year old Maytag that had a small drum and no longer held it's balance. This new machine is very quiet in my opinion. The cycle times are longer, but my clothing is cleaner. It also uses less electric and is more efficient to run. I work in a nursing home as my main job and maintenance at a school part time. I don't have to mention what gets on my uniforms. This machine does a nice job of getting my uniforms clean. I like the features such as wrinkle control, heavy soiled, bulky sheets and hand wash to name a few. The tub is large enough my queen size comforter fits in and run the machine on the bulky sheets setting. I would recommend using the Affresh cleaner once a month for regular washing cycles or more often if you pretreat or use your machine heavy. The Affresh product does a better job of cleaning the washer then running bleach through. It's important the machine be cleaned this way to keep the sensors clean as well as the rest of the washer.

I feel really gullible because I fell for the hype. I was looking for a large capacity machine and it looked perfect for my needs so by the time I heard about the water saving features and how energy efficient it was I was sold. What a mistake! I have to put the clothes through 2 complete wash cycles and 2 extra rinse cycles just to get them clean. The water level doesn't even cover half of the clothes and I've measured it with a ruler. Because there is so little water in the machine the Downey inside the ball doesn't spread evenly when it's released so only some of the clothes or towels or just parts of them come out soft. Even on small, light loads, I waste more time and use more electricity than ever, and to top it off, it is constantly going out of balance. I've raised a large family and also several pets and had many good and great washers, but this is the biggest mistake I ever made and now I'm stuck with it because I can't afford another machine. I love the Dryer Maytag makes. The dryer is perfect, but in all honesty, I could not and would not recommend the Maytag washer to my worst enemy.

Comments about Maytag White Top Loading Washer:
I use this product like most. My old machine, also a maytag, finally broke after about 10 years. The machine is quicker then I anticipated to complete a cycle but, does make a weird clicking noise when sensing size of load. Very large capacity and drys well after spin cycle. Overall I am happy with my purchase.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from McHenry, Il.
This was a gift to my wife's mother. She was so excited to have a new washing machine. Her old one was 49 years old. A friend of hers showed her how to use the new machine, and she loves it. If it works well for her, it works well for me.
Large capacity - works great!
from Evanston, il
This is our first HE washer and we love it. It's got much larger capacity than our old one, works well, and has lots of options for wash settings. Works great!
New top loading technology. AWESOME
Sceptic all when I first saw it and read product use booklet. Now I'm a believer. Love it. So easy!

its a good washer for the price!
Good Washer, Quiet, Hate the locking lid
from Buffalo Grove, IL
Works well. Reasonably priced. I've only had it for a month, so no long term reliability information. I wish you could open the lid to add more items, like the sock that fell on the floor while loading. But you have to hit pause, wait, then resume. But all machines are like that now.But so far - it's a good machine.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was on time. Installation went quickly without incident. Old washer was taken, and new unit was tested before installers left. It could not have gone any smoother.

As always Abt delivery was prompt and professional.
from Highland Park, IL
Couldn't believe the pricing we got on this washer. Did our homework and reviewed products in our budget range and this was by far the best - it hasn't disappointed! It doesn't run the quietest cycles, but its something I can live with!
