Maxima XL® Front Load Steam Washer with the PowerWash® cycle 4.7 5 493 493
Love my washer! My clothes come so clean! Everything comes out so clean. I had a baby blue jacket that everyone said to throw out because of black grease all over one sleeve, shoulder & down the back. I assured them my Maytag would get it out and it did; not a spot on it! I've only had my washer for 4 months so not sure of long term durability, but if the performance thus far continues, I'd say I have a winner! Love all the features like refresh, sanitize and cycle signals. Makes doing laundry a piece of cake. Haven't been able to use the steam feature because of logistics & availability of another water line for now. Hope to have that issue resolved soon. Can't wait to try it! Very happy with my purchase of this washer along with the matching dryer and was fortunate to buy it during a fantastic promotion. I hope to have this laundry set for many years to come! March 22, 2014
Great machine that should last for many years! This is a great unit that has proven to clean better and faster than our previous model from 1997. What an awesome upgrade! I like that there is a "clean" mode to run empty so that the washer can reset itself. I qualified for 2 rebates from my local utility company because of how efficient this model is! The noise level is very low and the chimes sound professional and not too "over the edge" December 30, 2013
Works Great. I bought this to replace a Whirlpool DUET. This washer is very quiet even when spinning. It has a very large capacity, I have even washed a bedspread. I haven't had this very long but have had no issues. I like the fact that there are no "mechanical" knobs or buttons. There are many options for water temp and washing levels. If I were to add any features it would be to add just" rinse and spin feature". I would also like to see a adjustment for water level. The only thing I don't like is the time it takes to wash a load of cloths. It seems like it take a lot of time "sensing" before and during the wash! When it gets ready to spin, the washer fools around for 5 to 10 minutes sometimes before it starts spinning, then it stops spinning and fools around again. {the timer will show 10 minutes left when it starts to spin but sometimes the timer don't get lower for 5 or 10 minutes, and it takes 20 minutes just for the spinning to complete} Does this harm the water pump when it is running dry? Oh well, My last washer did the same thing. April 11, 2014
This product was everything I hoped it would be I wasn't necessarily looking for a new washer and dryer set, but my current pair was approaching 10 years old so I kept an eye out for my next potential set. This Maytag unit was recommended by an associate at Lowes, for its design and general reliability relative to what is available in the market. When I happened across a Labor Day sale I could not pass up, I took the plunge and bought this washer and its matching dryer and pedestals. They are my pride and joy. Our clothes are noticeably cleaner - I can say that especially my undershirts are cleaner now than they were 2 years ago with the older washer. I have not used all of the cycles yet, but the Sanitize Cycle does an excellent job on our whites. Our clothes come out clean - and soft - without having to use special detergents, fabric softeners and the like - just basic "he" detergent, and bleach where necessary with the whites. I am looking forward to many years of service from this washer and its mating dryer. December 24, 2013
So far so good We really hesitated on buying a Maytag washer after the nightmare we had with the Neptune washer! We also bought a Maytag fridge that was a total disappointment. But we researched and read reviews and the bottom line was this was USA made and that's what we had to have. It has been through many loads of pet and human bedding and done a fine job. I worry about the pet hair that gets clogged along the rubber gasket where there are small outlet holes for water. Hopefully that won't cause a problem later. After each load I take a dry rag and scoop out as much as I can, no big deal. I did run some bedding through the power wash cycle after a pet accident, the bedding came out fresh and clean and I was very happy, the cycle took almost 3 hours though! wow! But the comforter was in perfect shape and very clean. The settings are easy and many to choose from. We have had it for a month now and so far so good. March 12, 2014
Full Featured This washer has features that I didn't even know I wanted. As I read about all it's bells and whistles before purchase, I couldn't imagine that I would use the steam cycle or some of the other cycles. I chose it because it was the top rated on Consumer Reports. I have, indeed, used the steam feature and most other of the cycles. The washer performs quietly and efficiently and treats me to an R2D2 finish signal. On the down side, care needs to be taken if using pods as ones detergent. If placed in first, before clothes, or last, after loading clothes, the pod will end up on the rubber gasket by the door, never having dissolved and leaving a mess. I have learned to place the pod in the middle of the load or even in a pocket. My washer is on the stand. When I wash a large, heavy blanket, the spin cycle aborts each time, due to being off balance. I now add other items to even out the load. The capacity is so great that I can actually wash king sized sheets and the blanket in the same load. I would recommend this washer to anyone. September 6, 2013
Nice Design, poor performance, poor reliability, Purchase this machine two years ago when my older top loader failed. I purchased Maytag based upon their "reliability". The machine does not handle anything heavy. Forget about cleaning even a bathroom throw rug. More than three large towels causes a failure. There is no option to just spin your clothes, so any failure requires you to pull dripping wet clothes from the machine. The cycles are all extremely long. The major frustration has been reliability. During the first year the seal broke loose and required replacement. Now after 26 months I am receiving an E01 and an F09 error. Everything I read tells me I am in for a major repair, which is not covered. I am being offered a $329 warranty for one additional year, but when I read all the negative reviews on Consumer Reports I think I am better off to get out now. I will get an inexpensive repair and sell the pair on Craig's list and replace this with another brand. September 10, 2013
Great Washer and Dryer Pair I have owned this set for a couple months now and have been very please. There are almost too many cycles and I kind of wish that you could just pick your temperatures and speeds and be done with it. I copied the page from the manual that shows all the best cycles for your load and hung it in a sleeve protector on the side of the washer. Its beautiful and fairly quiet. The close come out clean and very dry. I do several loads in a day and them am done for a few days so I wipe out the gasket and prop the door open for a few hours. No smell so far. I haven't done the Affresh cycle but I also do a load with bleach about once a month. The dryer does a fine job and is very quiet as well. I haven't used the steam cycle on the dryer but have on the washer--be careful as the steam can take the dye out of some clothes (I had a pair of dark jeans bleed which they have never done before). I have washed sheets, comforters and our farm coveralls and they all come out clean. The large capacity is great. I hope these machines last a long time. August 20, 2013
