After reading reviews of several models, we settled on the MVWX500BW. Even though it had no reviews at the time, it seemed to build on the best features of machines with high ratings. It also appears to have addressed some of the common complaints seen in other models. If you realize you forgot something, you can pause the cycle to unlock the lid and add more clothes. If you do pause, it repeats the sensing cycle, but that seems appropriate. Have only seen a little tangling of clothes, but not nearly as bad as our old agitator model. Capacity seems larger than our old "Extra Capacity" agitator model.We've done several large and small loads. There is a good variety of wash modes, without being excessive. The controls are straightforward and make sense. Most importantly, clothes come out clean. So far, we're very happy with our choice and hope to continue using it for a long time.

This is the WORST washing machine ever! I am trying to sell it & get a different one! We live on a farm and have young children. This washing machine did not wash SNOT off a shirt sleeve. My youngest had an accident during the night and I threw his wet clothes in the washer. They came out of the washer smelling of urine-as if they had never been washed. My mom takes my husband's work jeans home with her and washes them for me to get them clean. I called the company and they suggested I wash everything on Power Wash or Deep Water Cleansing. Power wash has helped some. But I hate having to wash EVERY single load on HOT, EXTRA RINSE, POWER WASH, HEAVY- I thought this was high efficiency?

Needs Repairs Twice Annually
By Joe M.
from Loganton, PA
Comments about Maytag Bravos X White Top Load Washer:
I bought this product less than 2 years ago, and I have already had to replace the actuator motor twice. It would have been cheaper to buy a more expensive washer that lasts longer than to buy this washer. This part is used in all Maytag top-loaders, so I will never be buying a Maytag washer again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not worth the money
from Fredericton, NB
This washing machine is not worth the money. I bought it in March 2014 and I am a single woman so doing maybe 3 loads of laundry per week, I am having issues with the spin cycle. In fact, the washing machine will just stop in the middle of the cycle and the lid will unlock, from the reviews I have since read on line, this is common with this machine. Save your money!! And as per other reviews that I have read, clothes come out of the washing machine with deodorant still one them, even if you use the power wash cycle.
Great size and features
from Eugene, Oregon
I was not prepared for how long it takes for this to prepare to wash. But once it started it seemed to do a good job. Still not used to the time. But am getting used to it because different machine than before that I had for 27 years.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great large capacity washer
from Baker City, Oregon
I like the washer a lot. It works great and I would recommend it highly. However, I never use the optimal dispenser drawer. First I never remembered it was there and second it is a pain to pull out.
Really like my new Maytag Washer.
from Sebring, FL
I love my new Maytag washer I bought 2 months ago. It is efficient and gets my clothes clean. The personnel at ABC Appliances were so helpful in helping me pick out the right Maytag washer for my needs.

By Unhappy mom
I've had this washer a little over a month. It has never run right. The cycles seem twice as long as my previous washer, and there is something wrong, because it often doesn't finish the cycles. When that happens, I have to run the rinse and spin cycle to finish the load. Even if I get the washer fixed, I don't like that it doesn't let you know how long each cycle is, nor does it have a buzzer when done. Really regret getting this washer!

works good - my tenants like it
from San Diego, CA
they have a toddler who loves to play in the dirt - so they do a lot of laundry. No complaints from them so far - and he's a typically picky engineer.
from Vancouver Wa
I love this washer, big change over my 20 year old washer. much better and requires less soap.
Bravo for Bravos X
By Luke Skywasher
from Naples, FL
Replaced my 25 year old Maytag washer and I am very happy with the new product. The machine is smart and uses little water. Takes a little longer and sounds like R2D2, but take this leap in to the future your be happy you did.
from Alexandria, VA
I have had this washing machine for a few months. It does an exceptional job of cleaning clothes, and the spin cycle is so efficient I've been able to shorten the dry cycle. I had a pet make a mess on some sheets (will spare you details) but popped them in the washer thinking they were probably ruined. They came out spotless. Bravo!
