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.

Purchased this washing machine and love how it works. A member of our household who is electronically challenged was able to use the first time without instruction. The spin does so well, we are saving on the drying time.

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Front Load Steam Washer:

We purchased our new Maytag washer and dryer on November 22/2016 and we our very happy with the operating procedures of both appliances, they are very efficient. The salesman Russell Roe was quite thorough with the knowledge and explanation, and was very professional. The installers removed our old washer and dryer laid down cardboard to protect floor and were very careful and polite and as a result there were no damages.

After 16 years of using the Matag Neptune series front load washer I wasn't sure I would like the new one. The new one is much quieter and has more features to make doing laundry more efficient. Very pleased with my purchase!

So far...Sooo GREAT!

By

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Front Load Steam Washer:

I replaced my 12 year old Maytag with a new Maytag! it is the only way to fly.
No issues, works awesomely, and spins out the water to nearly dry :)
The 'only' downside...the door is not reversible. I think that should be automatic on all washers and dryers.

We moved from PA to GA 2 years ago and left behind our 28 year old Maytag washer. It had been great! I put up with the set in the house for as long as I could, but am now happy to be back with a Maytag.
