Bravos XL® HE Top Load Washer with PowerWash® System is rated 4.6229 out of 5 by 1,880.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doesn't clean as well as I expected While I understand the "concept" of using less water, whether it's a front or top loading, in reality there is just a point where more water is necessary. Many times I just feel the clothes are not getting as clean as I would expect no matter which setting I use . Also, quite often when washing a quilt, the load will become uneven and completely stop even after I have placed it in the washer exactly as directed. I have to manually re-position it and a wet quilt is very heavy and hard to handle. That being said, I just don't think there are any washers on the market any more that wash with enough water, however I'm happy with the Maytag brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best washer yet! I was in desperate need of a new washer. I look at all my options. I picked this model because of the capacity of the drum . I needed something large so I could was a king size comforter and bulky items since I have two teenagers. I have had this for six months and love it! Most of the washers on the market claim they have a large capacity but not large enough for king size items. It's easy to use and energy saving feature!. I see my clothes are coming out cleaner!!I love the Maytag quality. This is my second Maytag washer!!! Last one lasted appox . 15 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This washer is junk! It does not clean. It beats up clothes. This is the worst HE washer I've ever owned. I have to wash laundry 2-3 time to get anything resembling clean. The spin cycle beats laundry up. It literally beats holes into clothing after several washes. Twice the clean cycle hasn't turned off. Once it was on overnight, the next time for 4 hours, before I had to stop it. Nothing about this washer is energy efficient. DO NOT BUY THIS WASHER!!!! I wish I had read the reviews before ours was purchased. I've only had this washer since December, and the problems were noted after the very first wash. It constantly gets off balance, even with the smallest of loads. This is a bad product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HATE THIS WASHER What were they thinking I'm certain I use more water and electric useing the extra rinse and sanitize cycles because my wash comes out dirty.. there is NO Water to wash the clothes. Ive had items ruined when using the bleach. Clothing coming out dirty. I have read what little directions are in manuel. So disapointed.. Maytag why can't you help those of us who were loyal to Maytag products and make an adjustment to water sensor so we can wash our clothes. I will not recomend Magtag to anyone untill they confess its a poor design and find a way to compensate us for our loyalty. Love my dryer but hate my washer!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My new washer!! I was a little nervous purchasing a HE washer because of the concerns about clothes coming clean with so little water.I have done laundry all day today and everything is coming clean, even my husbands work clothes.What I really like is the washer doesnt dance all over the laundry room like my old one did. Its quiet and doesnt shake the house when spinning the clothes. The amount of money saved on water is a plus as well, as I do a laundry every day. I purchased the granite color and love it. I like that you have so many options on the cycles.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this washer I've had this washer for about 7 weeks now and really like it. The tub is HUGE; it really holds a lot of laundry. I had a front loader prior to this washer and I'll never go back to one like that. I like the fact that I can stop this washer mid-cycle and add additional pieces without it having to drain all of the water out first. And there is no gasket for small pieces (like socks) to get stuck in. This washer spins the clothes almost dry. I know we are saving money on drying time because the clothes are so dry when we take them out of this washer. Love that! Overall, I am very pleased with this machine and I hope it lasts us for a really long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new Washer Totally awesome washer! I was a little concerned about the price, but, after receiving the washer and using it I have found that I got exactly what I paid for. I now feel like my clothes were not getting clean from my old washer. 12 cycles to use . I have used all but one now. The Allergen, but, I will end up using that one eventually. You can actually set each cycle different then the default cycle. It does spin hard enough to wrinkle your clothes more then a agitator washer, but, the wrinkles come out in the dryer and you can adjust the spin speed on each cycle also. On each cycle you can adjust the wash temp, the spin speed, and the soil level. Each one has 4 levels. It gives you lots of options. Most cycles are around 1 hour long. You can use rapid wash if you are in a hurry and use the other levels with that. Rapid wash is like 37 minutes long.
