Maxima XL® Front Load Steam Washer with the PowerWash® cycle is rated 4.6661 out of 5 by 629.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do not buy any other brand of washer I am not making this up...I had stains in clothes that had benn there, embarrassed to say, for ten years when I washed them in my new Maytag they ALL came out! It uses almost no water, it is quiet and allows turning off the cycle alert sounds if you choose to. I could NOT be more happy with the WD set. Please do not consider buying any other brand if you are in doubt. I am extremely picky and have always worked SO hard at getting clean clothes. I wash at least once everyday and these are amazing. I get better results than with other brands but never have to do anything except load and unload! I now know why the Maytag repair man is so lonely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We really love our new washer and dryer We've had the matching washer and dryer for a little over a month and so far no issues. The large capacity is a great feature. Its a real bonus being able to do what used to be two loads in one. We bought these because we have a septic field that was being strained due to the amount of washing we need to do. The washer is very quiet as well. Of course, my only issue is with the price. $2500 for a washer and dryer is a lot but if the pair lasts for 10 years......we'll revisit that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loud, pretty, cleans good I like that this machine does not twist and tie like my old Maytag did. I like that you can see what is going on inside. I wish that you could wash a small or medium load on Normal Load setting instead of having to wait on enough clothes to fill it up. (Mine will just not spin enough to continue) And lastly it is much noisier that my old Maytag. I love the look, I think I bought this set based on looks. All things considered I am mostly satisfied with my new W/D set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the style and performance except for spinning The spinning for the product gets confused with larger heavier loads. I found no information for how much you can put in the washer for it to spin correctly. But from experiment I have found that the washer cycle for large items such as bedspreads does not be spin properly. In the middle of wash and rinse well it does not spin well and then the items get water logged and by the time the final rinse is done, the machine sits and thinks and senses and turns the washer but does not spin up--I left this for 20-30 minutes and still no spin. Even if you set the spin to lighter spin (not max) it won't spin up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love not having to bend over to get into my washer or dryer. I love using less detergent, and the savings that affords me in this high efficiency washer. I love having storage below my equipment in the pedestals. I can hide more stuff in my laundry room as I'm downsizing and short on space for storage. I love the capacity of the machine. I do large loads of laundry for my kids. Bedding actually gets clean and rinsed in these machines. I think the design is tasteful and attractive. My kids love the sounds the machine makes in comparison to the old buzzer noises my other machines made. I hope I win, because my son wants a set just like mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my new Maytag washer and dryer. The appliances run so quietly. There is no soap residue. The washer has so many choices of the way one wants to wash clothes. The dryer senses when clothes are dry, and it takes so little time to dry a load. The front load washer does not leak water onto the floor when the door is opened. If too much soap is placed in the washer, there is a warning, and I can wash through another cycle without soap to rinse the clothes completely. What wonderful products! Cleaning both the washer and dryer is easy. I use the Affresh pill once a month on the washer, and the drum sparkles and smells clean. The dryer also cleans easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The perfect washer (almost) I've had this washer about a month. Right away I could tell the difference between this machine and my old one. Clothes were noticeably cleaner. This machine is so much better than my last front loader. When it spin dries my clothes, it's so quiet. My old machine used to sound like I was standing on a runway at an airport. The rubber gasket around the door dries much better than in my previous machine as well which prevents mold/mildew formation. I only have two small complaints about this machine. First, it would be nice if the door was reversible. Second, I wish you could silence the beeps the machine makes when a button is pressed. All-in-all an excellent machine!
