Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT NEVER BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!! This was the worst investment of my life. I have a family of five and thought a high capacity washer and dryer would be the way to go. This has ruined more clothes than I can count. It has cost 3 times the sticker price in 6 months time because of tearing and burning clothing even while on its lowest heat and spin cycles. I am afraid to wash clothes because I like my clothes and can't afford to replace them all. It has destroyed and burned through denim, cotton, polyester, satin, nylon...pretty much every material you can imagine. I REPEAT---DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. YOU WILL REGRET IT TERRIBLY.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Havin' fun So far so good. Our last washer was a bottom of the line, so now I have a front loader with buttons! The loads are a bit smaller than normal, but that's fine because it means the washer fits in the space I have. I love having an alarm at the end of the cycle and the way it corrects for being unbalanced. I've had it for a few months now and haven't experienced any issues with it working. My baby loves to stare at the clothes going around in the machine, which he couldn't do when I had a top loader. The rinse cycle comes in handy when things get soiled at 10pm and no one wants to stay up waiting for the load to go all the way through.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from At this point I am not very happy with this product This washer is very noisy and it ties my clothes in "knots". It twists them up like a rope and things come out very wrinkled. The dryer does much the same thing and it certainly does not undue the wrinkles put in by the washer. Not happy with the dryer either. Will I get a review opportunity for it? Last year I purchased a much less expensive pair and was much happier with them. I don't expect that you will publish this review, but thank you for the opportunity to tell you how I feel about this product set..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I was excited to purchase my new washer and dryer. I am not really as satisfied as I was expecting. The was cycles are a lot longer than my previous washer and I don't like the dials on the machines. I would prefer a push button, or something that "clicks" to make sure you are in the right setting. Also, if I choose to was on the "cold" cycle, the running time is 70 minutes!!! Why? And I can't change that, I have to go back into "normal" setting, change water temperature, and then adjust spin speed. A lot of steps. It's loud, if the washer is on Xhigh speed, the machine shakes and makes so much noise. We thought it was unbalanced, had the repair people come out again, but they said it wasn't. I would give this machine a "C". Wish I had of shopped around a little more first.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not recommend! We bought this machine -- about 15 months after buying it, the computer panel went out and guess what?? Maytag didn't have parts to fix it and the warranty was off -- I was out $1000.00. So we purchased the next series that was suppose to be better a little over a year ago. I am without a washer again -- waiting for a repairman. They have to replace the whole inside of this washing machine. So -- Less than 3 years -- $2000.00 spent so far and without a washing machine and another bill will be coming..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed! I am extremely clothes do not get clean, particularly my whites and towels. Since purchasing this machine, my whites are now gray and my towels all smell musty. If I am doing something wrong and this is operator error, I am very sorry, and welciome your help. Please let me know what I can do since I have the machine and want my laundry CLEAN! I called the store where I purchased it and they could not give me any suggestions different from what I am currently doing. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great washer! I love love love this washer. I have had 2 front load washers before this. The first lasted 10 years (typical life for a front loader). The second lasted 9 months. I had so many issues with it that the company took it back I got store credit. I purchased this Maytag and have been very happy with it. We cloth diaper and it gets all of our diapers super clean. I like all of the different cycle options it has. Especially the soak cycle. It has lots of different choices for each cycle, too. It's nice to be able to specify water temp, soil level, and spin speed. My only complaint is that the baby and toddler socks get stuck in the seal and I have to pull them out every time. Not that big of a deal though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid Maytag front load washers. I purchased a Maytag front load washer in December 2011.In January 2013, 13 months later and one month after warranty, there was water all over the laundry room floor due to the failure of the rubber door seal. I called Maytag service and they said it was past warranty and they would send a repairman to fix it for $329, almost half the cost of the washer.
