Maxima® Front Load Steam Washer 4.5 5 111 111
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. November 23, 2011
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. November 5, 2011
Have only used three months, but works as expected. Spin dry was hard to work out since have to choose the 'rinse and spin' option then push the button for the rinse to turn that part off. Works fine and big drum and like the fact that the door does not swing shut so the washer can dry out. March 15, 2014
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. November 6, 2011
overall good machine, but some significant flaws I am really disappointed that this machine doesn't have a quick wash feature. It is such a basic feature, yet they purposefully chose to leave it off when all of the competitor's comparable machines that we looked at, had it. We can use the overnight wash/dry for a shortened wash time, but it is only designed for a very small load. I also have had major issues with the inability to wash a small heavier load like a small load of towels, cotton rug or blanket without having spin issues.Since it doesn't spin out the dirty water, I can only assume that the towels aren't clean either. I have never heard of a machine that you had to run a full load of towels or nothing. It doesn't give an unbalanced load err, but (even though it spins around) it just doesn't ring them out. They end up absolutely soaking, dripping wet, even after being ran on an extra 'spin/drain' cycle after the normal cycle. My 10 year old Duets washed these same loads every week with zero problems so I don't understand why a current premium set shouldn't be able to handle such a basic load. It does a decent job with a full load of regular clothes. It doesn't seem to do any better or worse than my old Duet set. About the same noise/vibration level , maybe a bit quieter, but not a remarkable difference. I haven't had a use for the steam cycle yet, so can't comment on that. Machine size and opening size seem appropriate. Capacity seems good/average for front loaders. Buttons/settings make sense but when stacked you can't see the lights to tell you which setting the dial is on. The light is on the machine, not the dial, so the thick dial blocks the view of the lights. I will have to make hand made marks on the dial so I can tell which option it is on (I am 5'8" so it isn't a height issue). The panel lights and interior lights are nice when taking things out of the machine, but don't turn off automatically when it is not in use. I have to make sure to manually turn off the machine after use, which seems odd to me. If I am taking items out of the machine and carrying them to the next room in my hands, I have to go back to the laundry room to turn it off. Quality seems ok, but it is only a couple of weeks old so I can't really comment. February 5, 2014
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! January 28, 2012
Update to an under-performing model We gave our local reseller a chance to make our washer right. They replaced the entire direct drive assembly with updated internal parts and some rather strange instructions. No more than 5 pair of jeans, 4 bath sheets, smaller loads, less soap. Don't do comforters (unless you HAVE TO). Don't do the pillow cases with the flats and fitted sheets. Only one king sheet and fitted sheet at a time. Well, it still leaves bedding dripping, dripping, dripping wet. Max extract does not do any better. None of the parts were defective. We don't over load the unit AT ALL. We only use, "HE" rated detergents. We have gone from 4 medium loads to 7 smaller loads and weekly bedding. At more than $3000 invested, upset is an understatement. This model performs HORRIBLY for properly draining loads. Even with new suspension components, drum and drain pipes. No change in performance. December 10, 2012
I love my machines! The capacity is awesome. I counted 14 pair of jeans in one load. If the load gets off balance, it will stop itself and readjust. So much better than our previous machines, where I was afraid to leave the house for fear of it walking out the door. I love the soap dispenser. I keep a small plastic Tablespoon measure in the dispenser drawer so I always have it there and the soap gets washed off of it as the soap is dispensed. I usually use between one and a little more Tablespoons of liquid detergent. That works great! I love the sanitizer cycle as I have an incontinent person in the house. So far, these machines have been a blessing and we have had them for a little over a year. I highly recommend them. And wish I hadn't waited so long! December 24, 2013
