Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Design We bought this Washer probably 2 years ago. Nothing but a headache had the repair man many times. Replaced mother board and other parts. Now today its broke again. Sensor light keeps flashing and lid lock doesn't lock. Going today to buy a new one won't buy a Maytag or Whirlpool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love Maytag, dislike the machine. I think that Maytag is a great company, however I am very disappointed with the quality of wash from this washing machine. The low water wash does not clean the clothes well at all. It is particularly noticeable with whites. When some loads are finished there are dry spots on the clothes as if water never touched them. I love the environmental responsibility of this product and I liked the space it offered without the agitator but 70% less water equals 70% less clean. I have given it a few months to make a fair assessment and I know that I would never buy this kind of machine again. This is my first Maytag product and I would buy Maytag again, just not this type of washing machine. Unfortunately I feel I am stuck with it now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad bearing 2years and my bearing went bad $120 for the part luckily i could fix it myself or it would of been pretty expensive

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy. Issues from start I have no use for these "green" machines. They seem to more or less spit water on the clothing. Left over laundry detergent, dry places left on clothes where water didn't even get to. Now after 3 years this high priced machine refuses to spin out the water completely on the first cycle. I have to reset machine then set it to the spin and drain cycle. Washer Is balanced, legs are tightened with nut, not overloaded, and drain hose is clear. Pump mech too difficult to get at.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst washer I bought this washer in 11/2012. At first, it worked wonderfully. It was very quiet. After 1 1/2 yrs, the washer got very loud while spinning then eventually did not spin the clothes out completely. Because of course it was over the 1 year warranty, I called a repair person. They fixed it, but the noise remained. 2 months later, it was doing the same thing. The sensor would go on then go off then lock then unlock. It took 2 hours for my load of wash to finish and when it did it was not wrung out. I am now getting rid of the washer because who has 2 hours per load and have to baby sit it to see if it finishes. The machine is a total piece of TRASH. That is where it is going to day when I buy a different machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lid lock broke right after warranty expired. Unfriendly user interface. Cost over $200 to repair broken lid lock 14 mo after purchase. THAT'S with generous free part! Advised by repairman that you must be careful not to let the lid fall (slam) down. If that's a problem then the lid should be equipped with hinge so it can't fall down. Or the part should be more durable. Or there should be no lid lock: never had a machine with one before-why not leave this as it was. In any event don't bury that info in 20 page booklet; put warning on the lid! Also advised by repairman not to rotate the selector knob to the left as cycles may not run properly. Hello! Then put an arrow to the right with word "only" next to it. A machine should be able to be used by someone who hasn't read the booklet cover to cover.
