Rated 1 out of 5 by from AWFUL!!!! I just bought a home and this washer was left here when we moved in. This machine is HORRIBLE! The tiny, cheap one at my old apartment that was so loud you couldn't hold a conversation over the noise was better than this piece of garbage. I can clearly see why it was discontinued.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Discontinued I see this machine has been discontinued and I can see why. Same issues I read in the other reviews - my dark loads are left with soap residue, some require a second rinse. My sons are big into sports so I wash a lot of shorts/shirts with major body odor - this machine doesn't clean them. Clothes seem to ride on top of the water which I realize is a water saving feature, but I'd happily pay for more water to get the clothes cleaned properly. I also notice a fowl odor from the machine. For the cost of it, this machine should have no issues. I want my old washer back. What a mistake.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Think twice about buying this product! I bought a Maytag Bravos washer & dryer not quite a year ago. What a mistake! I wish I had my old Whirlpool machines back. The washer does not wash clean and sometimes requires a 2nd washing. Same for the rinse. I follow the directions on quantity of HE detergent and yet there's soap residue. The dryer takes twice as long to dry. Both my electric and water bills have gone up. I thought these were energy efficient machines and I'd be saving money. Was I ever wrong.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from piece of garbage Lasted just over a year for the warranty to expire. Purchased Lowe's protection plan. Quit working thanksgiving 2014. Had repairman out 3 times. Took a month to get part last time. Lowe's will not replace. Don't buy this machine or Lowe's protection plan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible waste of money I hooked up the Bravos XL HE Washer and Dryer May 2014. I have to wash everything on "bulky" just to get the minimum cleaning. I cannot wash I light spring blanket without manually standing, watching and re-balancing every 10 minutes! The front lint filter in the dryer is the worst design. You absolutely MUST own a vacuum hose skinny enough to clean after at least every other load because the flap on the lit filter flips up and wipes the lint into the dryer. At this point I am seriously considering donating these things to Salvation Army - taking the hit on the cost and just buying a plain large load washer and top filter dryer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wanted to love it, but the truth hurts You had one job, new washer ... After weeks of deliberating and reading reviews, I settled on this washer to replace our Whirlpool front loader. We've had it about four months. At first, I thought it was doing a good job. Thanks to the reviews, I knew I had to be diligent about following the directions to get the most out of it. And I like the look, electronics, and especially idea behind the washer. After going high efficiency, it feels guilty to think of going back to non-HE. And I wasn't willing to place another bet on a front-loader, especially after I asked our repairman what kind of washer he had at home. He pointed at our front-loader and said, "I would never touch one of those things." Flash forward to today and the daily laundry routine. Every load, I must pause and lift the lid of this washer to move clothes back further away from the center to force more water to go in. (A sensor in the center decides how much water goes in each load, and clothing has to be kept clear of it.) Even after I do this move - sometimes more than once a load - it's still not enough water. As I type, I sit here knowing my family's sweaty gym clothes are sticking several inches above the water, although the center is clear of obstructions. I have had to learn to live with the fact my family is wearing clothes that ARE NOT CLEAN. Don't let this be you! There are times when parts of clothes come out of the washer DRY. One time, against my better judgement, I put a comforter in the washer; many reviews raved about how comforters fit. Not only did parts came out dry, but a simple, fresh, pre-treated stain I deal with frequently (cat vomit, if you're wondering) looked the same as it went in. This was after an hour-and-a-half cycle. And it's great that the spin speeds are so high - the spin does a great job of spinning out water, and I even convinced myself briefly that this explained the dry clothes - but it can shred fabric. For many loads, there are new strings coming out of fabrics when I take them out. A short while ago, while visiting a friend, I washed clothes at her house. She has at least a 10-year-old top loader with agitator. I had forgotten clothes could smell like that. I know what I'm getting next time around. Good-bye, bells and whistles; all I want are clean clothes from a washer, which seems to have become too much to ask.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not for me We bought a Bravos XL--replacing a 16 year old Matag that we were told would cost about $400. to repair. Be assured that we loved the old machine but were told that the average life of one was about 15 years. Shame on us for not researching our new purchase but dirty laundry was adding up and we thought since we liked Matag in the past, would would be happy with another. To date, three repairs in as many months--two requiring new parts. Clothes not as clean, especially the whites as use of any bleach, soap or fabric softener is limited by the design of the machine. Noise level is high. Women--beware--if you are 64 inches as I happen to be, you will be unable to reach the bottom of the drum to extract the wet clothes. I have not, as yet, noticed a great difference in our water bill----purchase of laundry products is less but I'd rather use more and have cleaner clothes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dependable So far all is well. My only complaint is the silverware racks move around too much. Wish the clips better secured them.
