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?

Comments about Maytag Bravos X White Top Load Washer:
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!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this washer, big change over my 20 year old washer. much better and requires less soap.
Bravo for Bravos X

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.

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!

I bought this washing machine a few weeks ago. The first load I washed was a single set of queen sized sheets. The machine unbalanced so bad I had to stop it. Sometimes it unbalances with towels, but not every time. And, yes, I read and followed the loading instructions.On a better note, the dispenser drawer is great! and the clothes are clean, even my husbands shirt collars.
I hate my new washer.
from near McFarland, WI
This machine still does not work properly, even though a new circuit board was installed five days ago. I have had many sets of washers and dryers in several homes, but this washer is the worst one I have had of any brand that I have owned. It is very noisy, and "groans". I am sorry that I purchased this washer.
from Arcade, NY
This washing machine does a wonderful job, saves on water and soap, and the tub with no center agitator allows me to wash large loads or big items with no problem. The only thing I don't like about the washer is all the goofy noises it makes! It makes a noise when it locks the lid, and a dozen other noises when it is sensing the size of the load, etc. Very annoying! I thought there was something wrong with it! Redesign that, and you've got a winner.

It is good. My wire bras aren't broken in half from that center agitator. No agitator. Clothes clean. Uses less water. Choose best setting for load.
from Atascadero, CA
We have had our new washer for about two weeks, with about 4 washings so far. It will be interesting to see our next water bill, and find out if we dropped in our water usage (one reason for this particular washer).
