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!

Expensive piece of junk!!!!!

Comments about Maytag White Top Loading Washer:
Two year old maytag model #MVWC425BWO that my husband and I only use 6 months out of the year as we spend our winters in Florida won 't stop running. When the cycle ends it starts all over again. Today it started all by itself. Maytag knows there is an issue with this model but when the warranty runs out you are on your own. Not their problem !!!! SHAME on them for sticking their heads in the sand and not owning up to a manufacturing problem. I won't ever buy a Maytag product again and if asked, I won't recommend them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great washer, plenty of room since there in no agitator.
Short life span
from La Crossw, WI
This is a easy to use washer, that has a C average cleaning ability. Often the washer would leave dirt or residue behind after washing cloths, had to get into the habit of running several smaller loads compared to two or three larger loads, to insure cloths came clean. This wasn't a major issue, this washing machine was a more efficient replacement, that turned cloths washing into a time consuming process.After approximately 18 months the washer become incredibly loud when spinning a load of cloths, washing machine transmission is starting to fail.At 24 months the washer actuator stop operating.At 25 months the washer pulley stopped working correctly At 26 months tub gasket failed Repairman suggested I purchase a new washing machine, rather than invest in more repairs. I expected a higher quality product from Maytag, a machine that would have opporated a minimal of 5 years, before the first mechanic issue.

Loud and not very gentle on clothes.
from Stow OH
I see why this model has been discontinued. Sounds like a freight train in spin cycle. Repair man says it needs a new TRANSMISSION after less than 2 years! Not the Maytag promise I expected. If I had not purchased a 3 year warranty I would just set it out on the curb! Also do not like the dispensing system for softener-dispensing balls are outdated.
☺ Smart washer for smart people.
from Cape Girardeau, MO
Easy Installation, user friendly but with a lot of washing optimization settings to chose from. Don't listen to negative reviews about this type of washer. It is perfect in design and in application. It's a smart washer for smart people. So read the manual, watch a video to learn about this machine type before you judge it or buy a different one - thinking this type is too complex or problematic.
