Maxima X® Front Load Steam Washer with the PowerWash® Cycle is rated 4.727 out of 5 by 348.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this washer to replace a top loader with agitator. At first, I was not convinced that a front loader would get my clothes clean. I have since changed my mind. I have really put it to the test, and have not been disappointed. Our water usage has decreased and my clothes are clean. I use the bleach dispenser on a regular basis, with no problems. The spin cycle is so fast, the clothes are practically dry when the washer is done. This reduces drying time, which also saves energy. The vibration is at a bare minimum, even with the high rpm's of the spin cycle. I am very pleased with the washer and the matching dryer, and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine. Takes a while, but worth it. We've been using this machine for over a month now, and have been consistently impressed. The washer gives a ton of options for handling your clothes -- as many as you could realistically need, in my opinion, and the performance is solid. One example: we had some towels which, for a long time, just would never come out smelling "good enough" -- there was always some lingering smell in them. Well, this machine completely took care of that -- they smell brand new now. The washer does, however, take a while to run some loads, but all in all it is TOTALLY worth it -- stains come out, clothes are treated well, and I'm getting exactly what I want from my machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome washing machine! 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water bill went DOWN! I'm doing MORE laundry and using LESS water! We got our Maytag set in December. In March we laundered all the bedding for a church weekend retreat. I expected my water bill to be higher. It actually went down $5 for that month. Our clothes are SO clean and softer without adding other chemical agents. We use about 1/2 tablespoon of HE liquid soap per load. That's all! Talk about SAVINGS! And the machine is really quiet, too. The steam feature actually removed mildew stains from a bedspread left in the basement for several months. It is rare to purchase an appliance and continually feel that it was a good decision with every use. We are recommending Maytag to anyone who mentions needing a new washer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great capacity, easy to use and easy on the clothes We purchased the washer and the dryer to fit in a small space in our modular home. I am 5'3" and can reach the controls on the dryer just fine. It fits well and does not shake the house. It can be a little noisy but not any more than other appliances. I can fit king sized betting in both appliances and the clothes are clean and they dry evenly. I have allergies and we have a dog and since I have been using this combo, I have noticed that I am not having as many allergic reactions when I use the allergy setting on both washer and dryer. I steamed wrinkles out of my curtains. This was a wonderful purchase and American made makes it even better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient and Easy to Use When our washer broke, I had a fear of having to use one of the new required water-saving kinds. I had heard that front loaders took hours for one load, and that they got mold. We chose a Maytag Maxima X Steam washer dryer set after comparing several models and hearing of Maytag's recent commitment to making a high quality product again. After two months, I LOVE my new space age set -- 1) it holds a very large load of clothes, 2) It takes 45 minutes for a normal wash that can be hot, warm, or cold-- there is also a quick wash setting, 3) the clothes are mostly dry in a few minutes, and they are soft and warm and don't wrinkle. There are extra settings for sterilization and other things that can take a couple of hours. The "buzzer" bell is happy sounding. The washer saves water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really cleans and is very versatile I can't believe how little water and soap it uses. The variable cleaning options really lets me match my cleaning needs to the clothes, and other items, I put in it (like artificial plants).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's not from the Jetson's house, but pretty close... How can love to do laundry? I know. Right? Well I never did before. After reviewing numerous brands and models for two years I chose the Maytag Maxima X for several reasons. First, four years ago we knew that our washer and dryer were getting older and that although we'd been fortunate with them they would need replacing someday. You're only going to pay for the washer once. But you're going to pay for the energy, water, detergents, additives and so forth continuously. So the aim was to find the most energy efficient model without sacrificing quality of design or ability to do a good job. The Maxima not only fit the bill, it exceeded it. It's US EnergyStar rating was only $34 per year. Can you believe this? I'm still trying all of the interesting features. But if you want a light clean, you've got it. Steam clean..that too. Cold wash? Yep. Sanitize? Yes, that's there. And the ultra high speed spin cycle means drying time is far less, costing less if you use a dryer or less time if you line dry. All around, this is a great product and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a new washer.
