Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Maytag washer makes washing clothes fun again. Remember how we used to watch the washing machine wash clothes when we were little? Well, we are doing it again. The computer allows me to choose my cycle with water temperature and degree of spin dry. The sounds that it makes are a tremendous improvement. The biggest improvement is the machine stays so nice and calm on its pedestal. My salesman recommended not using Tide. He says he repairs most Maytag machines because the outer drum is full of Tide build up. Most importantly, our water bills have gone done. I do 3 loads a day taking care of our nonagenarian parents. Keep up the good work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet and nice This washer (and dryer) are both so quiet and just a pleasure to use. Man! They hold a lot and the auto soap dispenser is great. I used the "rug with rubber back" special cycle and it worked more bits of rubber in the washer and dryer. Haven't used steam yet but am actually looking forward to doing laundry now so I can't wait! I went all out and got the pedistals this time #my last whirlpools did not have them# and I don't know how I ever did without them before. No more bending over. Also got the work surface that spans both the tops of the washer and dryer and has a well to hold things like dryer sheets, bottle bleach and extra soap. I got an extra optimal soap dispenser so I can switch out when I use Woollite for sweaters. Am so pleased with this was worth the extra money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans amazingly well! We love this machine! It has incredible cleaning power. The PowerWash option got a oil/grease stain out of my husbands khaki pants after I had already washed and dried the stain in twice (didn't realize it was there until I was folding them). I assumed the stain was permanent as I have never had luck getting car grease out of his clothes, but decided to give the new machine a try. I pretreated the stain and then ran it through that cycle. I absolutely could not believe it took that stain out. Incredible machine and I couldn't be happier with its performance! Worth every cent we paid!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product is amazing; my wife uses it 24/7 . my poor electric bill and water bill. the horror My plumber came over and said.... " man, it looks these two machine are ready to be launch to the moon" too high tech is what he is joking about. We love these two machine from Maytag and we dearly miss Jesse white.... the now defunct loneliest man in town. the clothes come out cleaner and it is very delicate towards our most delicate of clothes. It is very quiet and runs like a charm. My wife just love this set and she was very very leary of front loading machine after hearing about her sister's run in with front loaders in the past. It is much much better then other machines with i will not mention as instructed. how do I know. well , I go to people's homes and they curse at their machines ... there that's how I know.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great but very noisy I love the look of this washer with its square door. Probably this and Maytag's reputation are what attracted me to it. As far as options and features, all high end washers seem pretty comparable so nothing really stands out there. It all works great so far. Only issue is the noise. I've never had a washer that makes so many clicking noises during mechanical changes and we're talking LOUD clicks, you'd think something broke. The spin cycle has this horribly irritating very loud droning resonance somewhere around mid-speed. We can hear it through the whole house with the laundry room door closed. It sounds like a helicopter lifting off. Did I mention it's really loud? No washing if someone is asleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best washer I have ever used! I can't say enough great things about this machine! My water bill has gone down, my clothes are cleaner, the automatic soap dispenser keeps soap use at the right level. There are enough settings to wash everything from delicates to comforters. The first few times I had to actually check and make sure it was running because it's so quiet. The digital selection display has an incredible number of choices but is very simple to use and intuitive. And the final spin takes out so much water that the clothes dry in record time. Well worth the price!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy front loading maytags After having our new washer for 1 week we were waiting 3 hrs for the washer to complete a cycle. You can only use 1/8 inch in bottom of little cup that comes with detergent. The sensors were detecting detergent is why it ran so long. After about 1 year that stoped and we can use normal amount of soap but we have never been able to do something heavy when wet, ie rugs, comfortor, duvet, linens, towels. The machine will not spin these items correctly and we are stuck with dripping wet items. The sensors are not able to balance the items so after hours of running we open it to find everything drenched in water. We are stuck with this garbage don't make the same mistake. Front loaders have too many issues still.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Washer Our water and power bills have both dropped since buying the Maytag Washer and Dryer. Water is down 25% and power is down 20%. Our detergent bill has also reduced dramatically. We barely hear the washer running. This is our second set of Maytag washer and dryer's. The last set lasted 21 years and was still running when we SOLD them. We went through 2 sets of washer and dryers in the 13 years leading up to buying our first Maytag's.
