Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer This washer not only looks great, it performs better than any other washer I have used. Stains come right out and I have none of the lint issues that occur in other washers. I have a compact condo so it's a huge plus that the washer is very quiet because I am never more than a few feet away from it. I love how dry the clothes come out after the spin, making time in the dryer much shorter. My only complaint is that single items, or extremely heavy items like bath mats do occasionally stop the spin cycle, but this doesn't seem to be any more prevalent than other washers. My favorite feature is fresh hold option, so I never get that moldy laundry smell when I inevitably leave a load in overnight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good washer, does not wash single loads well. Some of the things that prompted me to by this washer was the large capacity, the features and the overall design. I mostly use the normal wash cycle as it does an adequate job of cleaning the clothes. I don't use the other cycles as much because it adds so much time to the cycle. Unfortunately it does not wash single items well, even when using the small load cycle. they come out dripping wet. Sometimes it has a hard time balancing some loads. I love ability to turn the light on when it is washing the clothes. I also would have loved to buy the pedastals that go with it, but they were WAY overprices. Overall I am happy with the washer, although I wish the cycles weren't so long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Maxima® Front Load Steam Washer meets or exceeds all my expectations! This quiet, eco friendly, easy to use, commercial grade washer offers the ultimate in use options. Style and intelligence incorporated in the design makes this washer a must for those wishing to update and meet the needs of today’s laundry demands. Gentle to heavy loads are met with little to no noticeable noise, while efficiently and effectively cleaning clothes. Interior drum lights and signal alerts add to the comfort of use. Easy slide out, for removal of detergent drawer to clean residue is a bonus. Steam option a huge plus. Being, American Made, Maytag product, makes this purchase even better. I would definitely recommend this washer to others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans beyond my expectation I was not sure of changing brands and type of washer but I when my washer "retired" I wanted to replace it with American made. We just finished 5 days of having our 7 grandclhidren, ranging from 1yr to 7 yr, stay with us. My angels painted shoes, pants, shirt and body's with mud from the sand box only to my dismay as I had not dressed them for mud play! I tossed everything in the washer, minus of course the actual angels, set it for steam release, and walked away knowing I would be in the dog house for ruining clothes, To my complete surprise, every stain came out! Both my husband and I could not believe a front load, HE appliance would actually remove the stains. Thank you Maytag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product really works well I work in construction, and have 3 kids, so this washer has been put to the test. The steam for stains feature really seems to remove stains well. I am amazed at the ease of use, and functionality that it provides. My last washer shook the whole house when it ran. I only know this one is running because the chime that it sounds when finished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not only is this product a beauty to look at, but it works wonders My husband works in construction and always comes home with dirty clothes. This washer does a fantastic job in keeping his clothes clean. When his clothes are really dirty, I use the steam feature and his clothes come out looking nice. I've always washed my coat in the steam feature and one of my co-workers commented on how the coat looked like it had just come from the dry cleaners. I absolutely love my Maytag washer. I also have the matching dryer which I also adore. Clothes come out almost dry right out of the washer and it doesn't need very long in the dryer. I even noticed a difference in my power bill. I've had this washer & dryer for a year now. I am still so very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Washer We have ever purchased. Unit is a 7000 Model. My wife is very short so wanted a front end loader. Also, all of our past washers, have suffered from paint erosion of the drum, usually after yr 8 of age, so we wanted a stainless steel drum, which this has. Finally, I preferred a USA product, designed and produced here, but yet of good quality, and I have always been interested in the Maytag dependabilty representations. The salesman seemed to know the products strong points, plus the warranty, on parts that we have had go bad in the past on previous brands, were were longer (10 years). I am totally taken with this is just beautiful, simple but easy to use and attractive, if you can say that about a washer; I am a 66 yoa white male for the demographics. My wife loves it as well. It stands on a pedastel unit, which we bought, Maytag mfg'd, and it is very handy to hold supplies. Uncluttered the wash room considerably. The capacity is excellent, and the controls easy to use. I could have purchased the higher end 9000 series, which had more cycles, but my wife felt we would not use all of them; also the 7000 has all the upgrade features, so the 9000 is more cycles only and a different controls interface. Also, on a minor point, I had seen the controls of the 9000, as installed on a Whirlpool, and they were not well worked out, plus the design, as installed, did not look 'finished'. I like the Fresh Hold setting which does not allow mold/mildew occur, as it blows air #ambient temp I believe# over the load continuously, and rotates the load periodically for up to 16 hours. This is handy and used! Has sanitze cycle with steam, NFS stds. You will be surprised how little water is used, plus is the HE type detergent, low sudsing, etc. Very smooth with very little vibration. We used to keep washer room door closed and could hear lots of noise #previous washer 11 yr old top load expensive unit#, whereas even with the room door open, this cannot be heard running; very quiet. With heavy loads, at high spin speed, you can feel a little vibration with your hand on the top of the washer, but yet no vibration finds its way to the floor. A light can be turned on to illuminate the interior, any time during the cycles- nice touch. The controls are smooth in operation and the displays reasonable. If you want super pretty controls with a display like and iPod, then that is the 9000. So I intend for this to be my last washer purchase for a long time, and for now, we are off to a very good start!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Performer This washer will not properly drain sheets, towels and bedding. The lack of a spin-only option makes this problem worse. It does an EXCELLENT job on loads that a much less expensive Maytag unit could handle. We have resorted to hanging bedding outside to drip dry. Seasonal winter bedding trips are made to the local coin-operated laundry. We are so unhappy with this model that we've decided to start shopping again to replace this 15 month old washer with one that will meet all of our needs for the money we have and will spend.
