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.

I like this system. However there are a few minor changes that I would've preferred. For example, the single dose dispenser. It is very inconvenient that the detergent can only be added after the load is in and the door is closed. Other machines have a tray that dispenses during the cycle, like the optimal dose does.
Also, the wait time after the cycle begins is NOT 2 minutes, as stated in the manual. It is at least 8 minutes. This seems excessive.

Good, but very noisey.

By 

from Vista, CA

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

I had a whirlpool top loader for 17 years. It was so great. Good things come to an end and I finally get to pick my front loader. Knowing I wanted a maytag or whirlpool for reliable products.
I got the maytag washer dryer stackable set. It cleans great. It's super efficient. I love it except for the water pump. For a machine that's water efficient, why is the pump so loud? (((See video)))
I would recommend this product if the machine is in the garage and not in the house. My machine is in the house so the noise rattles the house.

I bought this less than a month ago. Cleans great however it is rather loud and the door keeps locking. We have to unplug it to let it reset.

Simplicity at its best

By 

from Mesa, AZ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

Simple & straightforward settings & controls make this a breeze to use. Sensor drying is almost always right on. Was told by the salesman that it would dry a King size comforter "no problem". Unfortunately, he was wrong. It does fine on a queen size, but there is not enough room for a king size to circulate - the inner portion comes out wet.
Suggestion - maybe try posting what the capacity size will handle (comforter size, for instance), so salesman don't have to speculate.

Easy to use

By 

from Mesa, AZ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

I'm not the type that uses all the 'bells & whistles' on washers, so I wanted a straight forward machine that was easy to use. This one fit the bill! I really like it, with two exceptions. First, it needs to have a rinse/spin cycle. Second, the center selector button is way too sensitive. If you accidentally bump, or lean against (reaching for something on shelf above) it, it turns on or changes settings. Please consider changing in the future.
