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.

Efficient but VERY NOISY!

Comments about Maytag Metallic Slate Front Load Steam Washer:

I have had two different techs look at this machine to see why it is so loud and they both said that is the way front loaders are. My previous Whirlpool front load washer and dryer were in the exact same place with the same plumbing and, although twelve years old, were much, much quieter. Maytag will not take the machines back so I am having to build a closet with sound proofing inside to be able to hear the TV in the living room 40 feet away. Very disappointed!!
