Maxima XL® Front Load Steam Washer with the PowerWash® cycle 4.5 5 135 135
Lives up to every expectation! I've only ever purchased Maytag washers in the past and this machine has so far lived up to the expectations I had for it. Granted that much has changed with Maytag since purchasing my last machine in the early 90's. Even with those changes I still had high hopes for it and couldn't be more pleased. I had reservations about buying a high effiency front load washer but once I started using it I found that just doing a little clean up of the machine at the end of several wash cycles has been all that's needed to make sure it stays clean. The extra attention paid in design to the door area and the seals provide ample protection against a leaky door which I had read might be a problem. The extra cycles and features with this machine are exactly as described and they work great. Probably the best unexpected feature so far has got to be the drum light. It's odd, but being able to see inside the drum after a cycle helps when moving out laundry and also with cleaning the drum. March 7, 2014
Love it! Excited about the warranty Maytag has to offer. I love this washer/dryer combo so far. I can fit a LOT of clothes in there. I thought the overnight wash and dry option would be for more clothing (it's really just for one or two items) but this is really helpful if you are in a pinch and need something washed and dried to wear the next day - especially us busy moms! Lots of options on this washer. Really like that you can add the soap once and it's good for 12 loads. Lots of automatic options that take care of the laundry for you. Took me a little time to get accustomed to all the options. It is very easy to accidentally brush against the machine though and change settings. I have mine stacked so my options sometimes get changed when moving my wet clothes up to the dryer. Love the look and feel of the dial and the buttons though. I like the "music" the buttons make too. Although sometimes they are a little loud and I need to turn it off if the kids are sleeping. This washer even tells you when to run the clean cycle, which I like. June 14, 2013
Great Washer - with a few issues I am enjoying this washer. It cleans well and is very quiet. However, the first one I bought had some kind of broken sensor: even at installation, it would not stop filling with hot water. The Sears installer shrugged his shoulders, said I could wash in cold, and left. Sears did send a replacement when I called, and the new one works fine. Other issues I'd like to see Maytag resolve: like other front loaders, the door is supposed to be kept slightly ajar when not in use. The door of my washer swings completely open when not latched, and bangs into my back door. I've rigged up a gizmo that I found on the internet, made from a cork and 2 shoulder hooks (about $2), but Maytag could easily include a flip down latch or other device. Also, the cycles are "locked in" , and I'd like to be able to adjust some things. For example, I'd like to wash towels on a normal cycle but with hot water. Normal only comes with warm water. To get hot water, I have to select heavy duty, which takes longer and isn't needed for my not-to-dirty towels. November 4, 2013
Great all around washer Great all around washer. I purchased the washer to replace a top load Maytag washer that I have had for over 15 years, which by the way was still running strong. My favorite feature has to be the detergent dispenser that holds enough liquid detergent for multiple loads. My second favorite feature is how dry the cloths come out after the spin cycle. They barely need to go into the dryer. I line dry some of my cloths anyways so it shortens that drying time dramatically. The cloths come out clean and are less worn then my old top load washer. I highly recommend the washer. My only complaint is the cleanout at the bottom of the washer. I have dogs so I have to clean out the front of the washer whenever I wash the dog blankets. It is not easy to get the dog hair off the rubber gasket. This is much better than the top loader I had since the dog hair stayed on the cloths in the washer and came off in the dryer. I highly recommend the washer. February 5, 2014
Great Features What made me decide to purchase this washer and matching drier was two fold. One, Consumer Reports reviewed as the best performance washing machine and two, the features. How many times have I forget to take the clothes out of the washer....and how many times i remember only to find them washed and smelling horrible for been left on there for a couple of days or more. Well with the circulating fan that kick on after the cycle is complete, that problem is gone. I can forget my laundry there and when i remember is dried and smelling fresh. Also the automated soap dispenser is a great way to save soap and guessing. This washer pretty much is so computerized that all i do is choose the program and let it decide water temperature, amount of soap and number of cycles, that is it. Oh one more thing, the steam cycle really removes all the stains and boost the washing on many cycles, another great feature. April 10, 2014
Worth the wait and expense I too did my research and decided to spend more on an American made product that I didn't have a chance to view before hand except online (they do have the 600 and 700 model in stores and they are pretty much the same thing). and honestly couldn't be more happy with them. They are beautiful, as far as washing machines go, and quiet as a dream. I do wish they had a small load option as well as a soak cycle and a rinse and spin cycle; but that being said it has everything else I can think of! I bought the set in white with the pedestals so that I wouldn't have to stoop over but really could have done without in hind sight, so if money is a concern that is a way to cut the cost. I have a teenaged, football playing, Boy Scout, and multiple cats and dogs so this set gets a work out on a daily basis. I had considered the Kenmore Elite brand because it too is highly rated by Consumer Reports but we have had nothing but bad luck with every single appliance we have purchased from them, both with the actual appliance and the customer service so I refuse to do business with them and am so glad that we went with Maytag.

Great washer The user interface is a bit intimidating at first but once it is set then is easy to use. The washer works great and I have no issues. I was instructed to leave the door open when not in use and is a little bit of an annoyance but I have a washroom so the door not in the way. I like the pleasing sounds from the wash complete signal. I also like the soap/softener/bleach dispenser because it is convenient and can hold more than one load of soap. The wash cycle times are much longer than I expected but the dry time is much shorter and makes up for it. A large load on the normal setting is 45 minutes to wash but the dry time is 30 minutes or less. The sanitize option is just over 2 hours. I only use that for my towels so I wash them last or a different day. Noise wise it is fairly quiet. The final spin does sound like a jet turbine winding up but is not loud. If its in you basement or closed in a washroom, you'll never hear it. November 3, 2013
My life just got easier I recently purchased the Maytag washer when my eight year old front load washer bit the dust. I decided to spend a little more this time and I'm glad I did. First, the Fresh Cycle is the best invention ever. If you're like me, you often throw in a load of laundry....then forget about it until hours, even days later. This great feature tumbles the clothes while a fan blows to keep them from mildewing. Just this month, that has saved me several rewashes. I'm also a big fan of the Power Wash. For my whites, this is essential with three boys who constantly walk around the house...and outside...with just their socks on. But even for everyday loads this machine rocks. The only negative I can think of is I have to turn it off/on to get the control panel lights back on. I think there's trick to do it, but I haven't taken the time to pull out my instructions. On/Off works fine for now. November 4, 2013
