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.

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Front Load Steam Washer:

Good dryer. Easy to use. It's actually nice that there is a light inside when the door is open so it's easier to see if you missed an elusive sock. Dries loads quickly in conjunction with the matching washer unit. It appears the auto moisture sense to dry function did not work with a mink blanket I was today. Kicked off after 5-10 minutes twice on me.Had to switch it to timed but I'm glad it has the lil chyme with it to let me know its done. it's also nicer than the older angry buzzer. so far she's working swimmingly.

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Front Load Steam Washer:

Good washer. Cleans well with less detergent. Easy to use even though for me this was my first front loader. And I can put more in it than you could with a top loader. It may sound like it's about to go into orbit on the spin cycle but at least there is no rearranging off balance loads or the sound that the washer is going to tear apart the house. So far, excellent.

Go Maytag

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Front Load Steam Washer:

Maytag represents reliability and serviceability. My new stacked washer-dryer combo replaces an LG combo that failed after only 7 years. The LG washer model was no longer produced. Rather than pour good money after bad, I opted to pay top dollar for a product that can be serviced.

So Far...Excellent!!

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Front Load Steam Washer:

I recently purchased this machine to replace another popular brand that quit after less than 2 years...And I am more than happy! This one is made in the USA and you can even add a garment once the cycle has started! It also has many other great features than all the major front loads have. And the clothes come very clean. There has been an issue with the Tide pods not dissolving if I don't have a full load. For some reason they end up on the rubber out by the door, so if I have a small load I use liquid detergent...no pods and everything is fine. I think it's safe to say this one will last more than 2 years!

Quiet and Fast

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Front Load Steam Washer:

We purchased this dryer about a month ago and have been extremely satisfied with it. The dryer is very quiet when running and has great features. The wrinkle prevent feature works especially well, even without using the steam settings. We've left clothes in the dryer overnight and found them to be wrinkle-free in the morning. Would highly recommend.
