Bravos XL® HE Top Load Washer with PowerWash® System is rated 4.4668 out of 5 by 542.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great capacity, but very loud After our Maytag Neptune washer died, we purchased this Bravos model based on Consumer Reports reviews. The magazine did warn consumers that the washer is loud, but we were not expecting this much volume. The washer is so tall, that my 5' 2" wife cannot reach the bottom of the washer basket even when spinning the basket around. She must utilize a "grabber" tool to remove the clothes and place them in the dryer. The washer, in my opinion, does not clean as well and uses more time (thus energy) than the Neptune did. I was also not satisfed with the cost. There is definitely a sour smell that occurs very quickly after the first use and continues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Large Capacity Only Good Feature Unfortunately after owning Maytag washing machines for more than 30 years I am disappointed with this machine. It is poorly designed. There is no soak feature in the machine and there is no way to increase the water level in the machine - the result is clothes being mangled. Also found that coins are allowed to go into the drain pump resulting in damage to the pump and expensive repairs. A screen costing 5 cents could avoid this. This machine may look good but I think it is a setback to washing machine technology.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product washes large loads and does an excellent job Purchased this machine a few weeks ago, the washer is quiet and does a great job. We are a large family and the 3 boys all play football. Stains galore and they all come out great. NO issues to report. The clothes are wrinkled, however, not any more or less than they were with the old machine we had that had the agitator.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product does not meet my expectations I was really excited to get this product, but have been unimpressed overall. I have found that our clothes have spots on them coming out of the washing machine, so they did not get completely clean. Also, I am only 5'3" and have an extremely difficult time getting the clothes out of the bottom of the machine. I have to strain myself every time I do laundry to get the clothes out of the machine. I am also less then thrilled at having to wash my washing machine. I figured it would take a while for the reminder light to go on, but it lit up within the first month of using the washing machine. Just plain old disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for large family I love this washer becuase it holds even our bed comforters and large loads. I really love the look. I orginially wanted a front loader but started eharing negative things so I am gald this washer still has a sleek rounded design that is just as attrative as the front loaders. it is also very tall. Which is something my tall husband appreciates. I didnt notice any change in my electic or water bill after the first month of use. I was expecting a change due to the energy savings advertised.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from With Great Fear and Trepidation After our terrible experience with the Maytag Neptune mold incubator, we were reluctant to buy another front loader. So we looked at the HE top loaders and discovered that the Maytag Bravos was the best on the market. The reviews on various popular websites were astoundingly negative. Yet we pursued the purchase of a Bravos based upon our retailer's recommendation. The first load of towels became unbalanced and never completed a balancing program cycle. So I turned the machine off and then ran a spin cycle. This worked OK. The loads for colors and whites went through their cycles fine. Everything came out clean and smelled fresh. I was told that the machine should last 7 to 10 years with normal (not everyday) use. It is very important to follow the instruction manual. We do not put fabric softener in the dispenser because people complaned that it left a scum on the inside of the machine. So we added fabric softener product to the dryer. The machine was quiet and certainly has a spacious interior. We used a half capful of HE detergent that worked well. Of course, the machine needs cleaning with Affresh or its equivalent after every 30 loads. So far, so good. I hope the track record continues to be good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Regret and disappointment I'm deeply disappointed in this washer's performance and regret buying it every time I have to use it. With the smaller agitator I was hoping it wouldn't be as harsh on my clothes as my older washer. Unfortunately, it seems to be worse. No matter how "loosely" I put in the laundry everything comes out a horrible, wrinkled mess. Even using the lightest possible setting doesn't matter. I tried using the no spin setting, but unless I have a clothes press to wring out the water in each garment I don't recommend it. Having this washer has ruined several pieces of my running clothes some of which were brand new. For such an expensive washer it has made laundry more difficult, more time consuming, and very frustrating. I really wish I hadn't bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Needing a new washing machine NOW isn't the best way to start looking, but trying to find a replacement for our broken machine led us to learning about the Maytag Bravos XL, and the choice became easy and we brought it home the same day. The large capacity washer easily fits bedding and rugs, as well as standard loads without wasting water. It is quieter than our older machine--important with a main floor laundry area--and the Max Extract spin speed option removes most of the water which means improved drying time, and more energy efficiency. We are very pleased with our purchase, and the 'Made in the USA' Maytag has found a home with us!
