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 washer sounded like a jet engine. After it leaked, repair was required to replace the gear case and cam - now it is quiet as a mouse. Maytag can't seem to grasp that I'm unhappy that I was sold a defective washer and I had to pay labor charges for the repair.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Worst Maytag I Have Ever Owned!!
By Mad In America
from Stem, NC
My wife and I bought Maytag in 71 when our first Child was born, using CLOTH Diapers. It was replaced in 1985 with another Maytag, which recently gave up the ghost. My wife wanted one of the High Efficiency Washers....without the Center Agitator. Maytag gave us such good service..we of course bought Maytag again. BIG MISTAKE!! #1. It does clean our clothes that well. Shortly after putting "clean" clothes on I can smell the stale Body Odor coming off the garmet. #2. It makes so much noise, it wakes up the DEAD. #3. Even with putting a small amount of clothes to be washed...it will get out of balance..WITH NO SIGNAL to let you know..and you don't find out until you go in THINKING your clothes are ready for the dryer. All and All..while Made In America..I am VERY Dissatisfied with this Product made by Maytag.
Better than any front loader
i bought it a year ago n the only problem ive had was it wouldnt start one time, the help line rep said to unplug it wait 30 mins n plus it back in. it reset the computer n its been fine. it does tend to get unbalanced sometimes with sheets or towels rven if I rearrange n i dont like that when u turn it off the whole washer empties b4 u can open it. thats a waste of water in my opinion. u should b able to redistribute a load without losing soap n water.

Good washer with capacity. Love that it does not have a big agitator. Can easily fit comforters and know that they will not be ripped by an agitator.
Great washer, almost as good as the one we had for over 20 y
from Concord, NC
We purchased this several weeks ago. Once we figured out how to operate it, everything worked out great. We really like it and much prefer it over our GE that lasted only 2 years. GE appliancd now owned by Haier, a Chinese company.

Takes too long to wash in comparison to the whirlpool washers I've owned

I have been using this washer for a month now and it works excellent. The only negative about its features are the bleach compartment and options to set for your clothes. I would like it to have a "delicate" and "prewash" setting. The bleach compartment is a horrible design because it is right at the front corner. I have ruined multiple items of clothing now because of that. Whether it's the shirt I have on gets ruined from reaching in and it touching the compartment or if its clothes that I am putting in brush along that compartment and get ruined.
Save your money
This washer works when it wants to work. If you have the load off center it stops washing, if you have the slightest to much it stops. When it washes without having to restart it does a great job. I like you can wash king size comforters in it but needs to be able to completely wash it. It is quiet and don't seems like its find to walk away. Shouldve saved money but I'm working with what I have.
Expensive piece of junk!!!!!
from Cincinnati, Ohio
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.
