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!!!!

Comments about Maytag White Top Load Steam Washer:
Extra large capacity inside but not bulky looking and does not take up much space. Quiet and water efficient with option for deep water wash. Also steam cycle and self cleaning cycle. Love the agitatorless design. It is gentle on clothes and cleans well large and small loads well. Spin cycle removes more water than my last machine making for shorter time in dryer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Doesn't wash clothes well. I have to re wash twice. This machine is always off balance.

Had the unit a little over a month and love it. Clothes come out dry and wrinkle free with the steam option. Doesnt take very long to dry loads and has huge capacity.
Had it a little over a month and love the capacity and how well it cleans the clothes.
Extra large may tag washer
By Boxer Dogs Peg

I switched from a front loader to a top loading machine. The washer does an excellent job on clothes. It makes many different sounds while running compared to the front loader. I am happy that we purchased this machine.
Terrible machine , constantly off balance , does not clean your clothes
from San Antonio, TX
This machine is very user friendly. It cleans well, has a large tub...overall we're very pleased.
Huge washer drum!
Enjoy the capacity and the steam option for cleaning our especially dirty items. Wish I could see what happens inside the washer while it's running. The locked lid feature is a bit inconvenient.
Love my new washer
from Santa Clara, CA
This washer was rated highly on wirecutter, so I decided to order it to replace my broken washer. So far, this machine works very well, is easy to use, and has a very large capacity. I like the touch dials and all the different choices for washing. I also like that it does a very good job of cleaning our clothes.
