Maytag® 4.8 cu. ft. Bravos XL® HE Top Load Washer with Steam 4.5 5 93 93
Love this machine!!! After having a flood in our basement, we had to replace our old washer and dryer. We had the Whirlpool duet sport HE front loaders and hated them...the towels always smelled after coming out of the washer. At any rate, we did some research and were interested in the top loaders. We were leaning towards Maytag, but were open to other products.  When we asked which bands were the best, the sales person stated Maytag and 2 other brands. When we asked specifically about the Maytag Bravos XL's the sales person said you really can't choose a better one. So, we decided to go with that and I couldn't be happier!!! I'm still getting use to the multitude of options, but find it easier and easier with each wash. So far I've washed bedding, clothing, and towels...all of which have their own settings and they've come out unbelievably clean! I can honestly say that I truly enjoy doing the wash now....thank you Maytag! August 27, 2013
Dark clothes covered in dirt after washing! After one month of ownership, I'm so fed up and disappointed with this machine! I did lots of research and thought it was going to be an amazing machine to replace our fabulous 29 year-old Maytag that finally died. Initially, it seemed to work okay with light-colored clothing, but when it came to navy work pants and other dark clothes, it is a total loser! I washed them 2 times and used extra rinse cycles, but they still came out covered with loose dirt that was redeposited all over them during the spin cycle. I had to brush the dirt off and wipe the pants down with a clean damp towel to remove the deposits. The towel was filthy afterwards! How can they say that this machine is good? I even cleaned the machine with bleach as recommended for each month, but that made no difference in the performance. There just simply isn't enough water going into each wash to carry away the dirt. And there's no filter for the dirt either. Also, the spin cycle may remove most all the water, but the clothes are all wrinkled afterwards! I have to set the spin cycle to low just to keep the wrinkles down and then I have to fluff the clothes in a hot dryer for 5 minutes before hanging them or else I'd have to iron everything. (Yes, we prefer to hang our laundry to save on energy). I want my money back and a regular old fashioned washer again that actually cleans the clothes! January 4, 2014
So different from my old traditional washer, but gets the clothes nice and clean! This washer operates differently than my previous top-loaders. It doesn't use much water or soap, so it makes me think it's not working right, but the clothes come out nice, fresh, and clean. The absolute best part is that my 2 and 3 year-old grandkids LOVE pulling up chairs and watching through the glass top the laundry churning and going round and round. They enjoy the "music" and lights that the power and selection buttons make. Best money I ever spent!! March 22, 2014
Large capacity is a plus. However, I prefer a front loading machine. After using a front loading machine and getting this top loading machine I learned that I appreciate and prefer the front loading machines over the top loading machines. The catch is I like reaching from the top into the machine as opposed to bending over to load / unload a front loading machine… My previous front loading machine really got clothes clean. With this machine I've had to rewash items because they don't appear clean after one wash. I'm not convinced that they are agitated enough. Often when I look in and watch the laundry during a cycle I see the same items on the top ~ Leaving me to believe that clothes aren't rotated and washed as well as they would be in a front loading machine… or in a different machine. My previous front loading machine was also energy efficient. I'm not seeing any more savings with this machine… However, that could be because I need to rewash items. Time will tell. All in all, it's an okay machine. January 7, 2014
This product did not clean clothes, we chose to return it. I am the mother of 3 boys and asked the salesman at a reputable local store for a top loading machine with maximum capacity that cleaned very soiled clothes. I was not concerned about price as I needed something that cleaned very well. We had a maytag Neptune and the washer baring was to expensive to fix but I liked the original so I was loyal to maytag. When we got the machine the first load through I was disappointed with the results but wanted to give it a chance. When I loaded the machine with clothes only half full the top cloth barely got wet. I would adjusted the settings in a variety of ways and found my lightly soiled clothes would get clean using steam, high soil and extra rinse. Even the I wasn't impressed because of the time it took to finish all the cycles. I tried the machine for a full month and this product did not clean our clothes. April 14, 2014
Nice change for Matag! We purchased this Matag washer primarily because it was manufactured in the United States. I had owned a Matag washer from 1972 until 4 years ago & was very satisfied with this product. However, the Matag washer I purchased 4 years ago was TERRIBLE!!! It was loud, banged when changing gears, & definitely didn't last. Therefore, I didn't want another Matag! The salesman at Rebennack's in Kingston, PA, explained that the Matag I had gotten 4 years ago was made in Mexico, & they found out that these washers didn't last. So, I took a chance on another one. So far, this washer is very good. It does take longer to wash clothes than the previous Matags I have owned, & I have to stand on a stool to reach the clothes (it is much higher than my other washers). Other than those two items, I am enjoying the new Matag & have already recommended it to my friends. April 7, 2014
I couldn't be happier! After reading some reviews I wondered if I was making the right choice to go with Bravos. One load finished and I am certain that I did make the right choice. Yes, it is higher than my previous Maytag but, I use it as a stretching session. The larger capacity is wonderful for bulky items like bath mats and pillows. The noise level is so much lower that I had to check to see if it was running. I love all the specific settings to get my wash just right! My clothes are coming out cleaner and softer. My sheets have never felt so good! And now my washer is cleaner too with the special clean cycle! Thank you Maytag for stepping up to the challenge to produce a better product. I am one happy customer. April 14, 2014
Nice features, but missing the old Neptune. We selected the Bravo in large part to avoid the stooping to unload a front load washer and the need for additional cost pedestals. What we have found is that only liquid detergent is suitable unless the wash is using hot water. Packets of pods of either powder or liquid do not consistently dissolve in cold or cool water and will leave detergent residue on the some of the laundry. April 1, 2014
