Bought this washer 5 months ago. It replaced a 20-year-old washer so it was like going from beating my clothes on a rock by the stream to having them cleaned by NASA. First thing you'll notice is that it uses a 10th the water an old machine uses. Now, I don't know about you, but I don't sit at tea parties all day in my spotless whites. I actually get my clothes dirty. So, the 'normal' setting is useless due to low water. I set every load, regardless of what it is, on the 'bedding' setting because it's the only way to get these new machines to use enough water to get the clothes clean. It's more water than the 'deep water' setting though don't ask me why. Then I set it on its longest wash length to get it all clean. I also use the 'extra rinse' cycle to get the soap out. The 'max extract' spin setting nearly gets the clothes dry. Now, while that's great from a clean clothes point of view, the total cycle length is going to end up rivaling glacial drift. The good thing is this washer is so huge you can basically do three loads worth of the old washer's capacity in the new washer. Therefore, by comparison, the cycle length isn't that much worse. As for steam, sanitize, wrinkle control and all those other settings? They make you feel like you have to interview your laundry load before choosing the most appropriate setting. In other words, they never get used except I do occasionally use the delicate setting. I also learned if you just want to spin a load set it on rinse/spin then turn the 'extra rinse' off and all it'll do is spin. The only truly irritating thing about these new machines is the lid lock. As soon as you turn it on the lid locks and it starts to 'sense' the load though what that means on a metaphysical level I'll never know. It's no big deal until you find that errant sock laying on the floor in front of the washer. Trust me. Wait until it's done 'sensing'. Don't just hit pause and open the lid. It freaks it's little computer brain out. Like I said, it's irritating but once you hear how fast the washer spins you'll understand why the lid lock is necessary. It'll keep some kid from getting her arm ripped off. As for using the washer cleaning chemical? Unnecessary; just use a cup of bleach in the washer cleaning cycle. And, yes, you'll have to run a washer cleaning cycle if you ever want that irritating reminder light to turn off. Overall it gets my clothes much cleaner than my ancient machine. Not sure if that's an endorsement or an inevitability but either way I'm pleased with the performance of this machine.

This washer is absolutely AWFUL--- when washing darks it leaves mark on the fabric. I tried to wash it a second time and the marks were even worse. I feel like my clothes are being ruined because of this washer. DO NOT BUY. The photo below is of my shirt after the SECOND WASH. THIS WASHER IS HORRIBLE!!!!

New Extra large capacity washer

Comments about Maytag White Top Load Steam Washer:
We bought this washer with the history of Maytag in mind...My Wife and I both know that Maytag is a heavy hitter when it comes to laundry. This machine is awesome, we especially enjoy the steam setting. Our towels have never been so clean. Plus, with my wife being less than tall, access to the bottom of the drum is a breeze for her!!! I wish we would've started off with this machine instead of the SAMSUNG that we had. (that is on recall for explosion hazard)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used this washer for 1 month. As others have commented there is a white residue on dark clothes. Not every piece of clothing will have it so it may be related to where the item is in the washer. I have tried different detergents and different washer settings. Neither helps. Also with dark items you can see that some of the item is dry which indicates not enough water to cover the clothes? These two problems are not acceptable. I have other Maytag appliances that I love but I do not like this washer and wish I could return it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

One issue with this machine
I think the water saving feature of this machine doesn't allow the detergent to get completely rinsed out. To solve this problem I either use the extra rinse feature or deep water wash feature.

The machine has a vibration during spin cycle
Huge capacity and works great
There's a huge drum and it fits a huge load of clothes. The only thing you need to make sure is that you have balanced out the clothes and leave the middle of the washer clear or any clothing. Clothes come out very clean but definitely need to go through a dryer to remove lint that builds up on the clothing.
Bought this a few months back. Noises and it sounds like my basin is off. It does not wash blankets well. Does not ring them out. They are still dripping wet. Worry about longevity with this one
