We have had this washer for about 3 months, and we absolutely love it. It was replacing a ten-year-old front-loader that finally died. This one holds a lot more clothes, so we can do less loads. Plus, it uses about half the water anyway which means we use about 1/4 of the water that we previously used. That is very important to us, since we are on a well and septic system. But just as important is that it also cleans the clothes better than we've ever seen! Amazing technology; I was a skeptic at first, but it really works! I can't really speak to the durability yet, but everything seems well made and sturdy. I know these washers are more expensive than some other models, but definitely seems worth it so far.

Mother Board went out on this piece of junk after less than a year!!! Instead of replacing the machine they are repairing it while I'm without a washer for at least two weeks! DO NOT waste your money on a Maytag - name used to mean something until Whirlpool took over..... I would give it zero stars if I could!!

Very Nice machine

By 

from Wilmington, NC

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

Seems well-engineered, both mechanically and aesthetically. Very quite (more so than my previous Whirlpool ... tho I recognize that both brands have the same ownership and many similar parts.) This machine also seems to not have any trouble while spinning when there is only a single item in the tub (My previous Whirlpool would often not be able to complete a spin cycle if there was just one item being washed, presumably because sensors indicated that the tub was off-balance with only one item in it.) The one "con" I might mention is that this machine, vis-a-vis my previous whirlpool (both are front-loaders) seems to have a greater tendency to collect and retain small amounts of water behind the rubber collar which is just inside the door, so I need to be a little more vigilant to wipe out and dry that area after each wash in order to minimize/eliminate any mildew formation in those areas.

Very Satisfied

By

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

About a month ago, we bought this washer to replace our almost 17 year old Maytag Neptune washer with a bearing going bad. Although I am still learning and haven't used all the features on the new washer yet, I have been very pleased with it so far. The shock absorber system seems MUCH improved over the old model and the larger capacity easily handles all of our king-sized bedding.

Excellent dryer system

By 

from Ithaca, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

We purchased this dryer about a month ago, and so far, have been very pleased with its performance. It clearly dries heavy things like towels better than the dryer I had previously. I'm still learning about the features that I've never had before, and haven't used the steam feature yet, but I'm happy with the choice so far.

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

Works good. Is noisy but we knew that going in. Would like to see a stop on the door so that it can we left ajar automatically when not in use. Also, would like louder signal options since the machine is in a separate room.

We purchased this unit for our new house and it has made wash day shorter as it handles big loads and uses less water and detergent while not sacrificing cleaning ability.

Simple to operate

By 

from San Juan Capistrano, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

This machine has not a whole lot of choices -- and that is good for this 74 year old grandma. I can understand the need for a lot of different cycles from families with workers and children. The design is simple and clean. The drum is nice and large. Can hold a queen size comforter easily. The noise level is less than a vacuum; but loud enough that I can hear it running as it is in the home and not the garage. I'm very happy with it.

Love this Washer!!

By

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

I bought this washer a month ago because it has every feature I could possibly wantt. In fact, it has options I didn't even know existed! The stay fresh option, optimal dose dispenser and water hardness adjuster are some of my favorites. Add to those the delayed start feature, and doing laundry becomes an absolute pleasure.
