Bravos XL® HE Top Load Washer with PowerWash® System 4.7 5 1817 1817
Fantastic Machine I have had my Washer a week and I have almost run out of things to wash. It has done my goose down duvet and pillows to perfection. I have ordered the matching Dryer and it will be here tomorrow. Can't Wait!! August 15, 2013
Does not wash your clothes I do not know how this washer was ever approved for sale to the public. We didn't do our research and purchased this washer earlier this year, to replace our 25 year old washer that was on it's way out. The washer does not fill enough water to fully wash the clothes, and fails to rinse the clothes properly. Whenever you have dark clothing, it is a guarantee there will be soap lines all over your clothes, and you will have to re-wash them to get the soap out (when that doesn't work I try wiping it off with a cloth). I thought this machine would save us money, but after washing loads more than once to get them clean defeats the purpose of having such little water. Why isn't there an option to increase water capacity? I feel like I am stuck with this machine for now, but plan to get something better designed next year. I am not even sure if I could sell this to someone, knowing what they will go through trying to get their clothes clean. I'll probably donate it somewhere. December 23, 2013
Wow! What a change! I call my washing machine my spaceship now - all those buttons and lights, and almost silent operation, it's like something from the next generation!! The water saving feature takes some getting used to - not seeing your clothes totally submerged makes you wonder whether they're actually getting cleaned - but I've never had whiter whites or sharper colors. Excellent cleaning power. Capacity is HUGE - I still haven't reached the max load yet - and on only two-thirds it it still too large for my older tumble dryer; guess I'll have to look at upgrading there too! Only feature I wish they could've changed was the towel setting - it is with colors and I normally do these with underwear and socks, which use the normal setting - BUT they do wash better this way, so I perhaps need to change my ideas about how sorting gets done! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this machine - it's a true powerhouse. Oh yes, did I forget to mention I LOVE the cleaning cycle where it will clean the washer's interior? Great for us OCD types!! April 4, 2013
WOW! Way Cool! I've never had a washer like this one before. I love that the agitator is so small. Plenty of room for my families clothes. When i ran my first load I thought I had a defective washer because there was so little water used. I thought my water lines were clogged or that the machine wasn't allowing enough water into the barrel. I read the owner's manuel and found that everything was perfect! It doesn't need all the water I'm used to seeing. This machine has cut my water usage for washing clothes by about 70%. The clothes come out clean and fresh. The clothes are not all tangled up with each other or the agitator. It's so easy to unload and put into the dryer. There are multiple options on the panel to choose from. It doesn't matter what kind of load I have, there is an option to choose that will work perfectly. I use less detergent as well. I really enjoy that fact that I can wash twice the size load as my old washer. This is the best purchase I've made for my family in years!!! November 5, 2013
Best I've owned I have only had this washer/dryer set for 1 1/2 months. The quality certainly seems to be there, the sturdy hindges, buttons, knobs and thick metal, etc. I considered rating it average just because I have not had these units very long. The Capacity is outstanding (both washer and dryer), I can fit an oversized King comforter with no problem. The Design is great, I specifically like the glass in the doors. The Features are useful; from different levels of temp to different levels of soil extraction, spin speeds and my favorite is the designed feature that reminds you to clean the washer. The Performance certainly exceeds my expectations, my clothes smell and feel cleaner than before. The Sound Levels are very low, finally a washer that doesn't shake itself out of place nor does it thump, thump, thump in spin mode; it is very quiet indeed. Overall I am thoroughly impressed and I am looking forward to and expect to get many years of great value from this product. April 4, 2013
Best Washer! I have had my washer for 3 months now, and I still love getting to wash clothes in it. I upgraded from a very basic washer, and I was very overwhelmed with all the features and decisions in buying a washer. My only concern with the Bravos XL was some of the reviews that the washer "eats the clothes." This has not happened one single time to me. I did take about an hour once the washer was installed to really read the entire manual about how to select the correct settings/cycle. That has made a huge difference in my opinion. I haven't had an issue either with feeling my clothes are getting clean enough. The improved technology is superb! It is super quiet. Our house is open floor plan with no door on the laundry room, and we can comfortably watch TV with little interference on sound. When I bought the washer, Home Depot had a deal so you could buy it in the granite color for same price as the white. I absolutely love the granite color. We bought the dryer too, and it makes a very nice set. You won't be disappointed! I would recommend to anyone. April 3, 2013
Would get rid of this machine if it wasn't so new The best word I can use to describe this machine is 'the wrinkle.' I have owned many Maytags and this one is the worst I've ever had. While I love the capacity, it makes a weird noise while washing and everything is so wrinkled when the cycle is done. The dryer doesn't even remove half the wrinkles and everything has to be ironed. This may be energy efficient, but it sure isn't work efficient. Also, with it being so large, you need to be a giant to reach down to the bottom of the machine to get clothes out. It is about 2 inches taller than most machines so a short person would never be able to use this without a stool. March 24, 2014
This washer is NOT my favorite. Overall, I end up doing more loads than in my older, center-agitator unit. If I put more than 3 pairs of jeans in the washer, they end up all tangled together and with soap residue on them. I ALWAYS USE the extra rinse cycle to get soap residue out of the clothes. Sometimes clothes come out still dry if I don't use the extra rinse cycle, as well as choosing the soil level as if the clothes were dirtier than they actually are. (So much for water efficiency) The washer does NOT clean as well as my old one! If the load is over half full (dry) the clothes come out wrinkled and tangled. Sheets come out with the same fold marks in them as when they went in!. And they are ALWAYS TANGLED and difficult to separate. Towels are also tangled and often have to be washed twice.. Even though I read many, many reviews before purchasing, I should have given more weight to the negative reviews. I am going to sell my washer and matching dryer set, and get some old-style ones.
