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.

So far, so good

By 

from Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON Canada

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Front Load Steam Washer:

Have had this for only a week, so it's early to judge. Washer is taller and deeper than my last model. Controls are well-designed, allowing control of various wash-cycle parameters, and the results are good. My only nit is that the door is humongous, needing more space to swing open and it won't clear a laundry basket sitting on the floor in front of the machine.

Decent Washer

By 

from Seattle, WA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Front Load Steam Washer:

Bought this a few weeks ago. After a few uses, it developed an alarming slapping/clanking sound during the spin cycle. Then, about 6 washes later, that sound disappeared, so I no longer have evidence to present to a repair person that anything is wrong, and I'll be stuck for the life of the machine knowing that something wrong inside caused that sound. My other complaint is that the automatic soap dispenser appears not to dispense enough soap to get the clothes clean, so I am back to the "just guess" method of measuring detergent. Finally, my wife thinks the machine looks clunky. But the good stuff: it has all the features, and appears to get the clothes clean.
