Centennial® EcoConserve™ Top Load Washer with Low Water Wash is rated 4.0381 out of 5 by 1,180.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Let's see if this one gets censored. My wife and I purchased this machine about a year ago and are VERY disappointed! We have tried multiple brands of detergent, followed the instructions carefully and it still does not clean clothes properly. It wrings them out so much that even permanent press clothes come out of the dryer wrinkled. Heavily soiled clothes come out looking like they were tie dyed. These photos were taken after being treated with pre-wash and washed and dried in this machine and the associated dryer. I posted a review on this site previously and it was removed. There was no profanity just a true accounting of how poorly this washer performs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE! Motor blew @ 13 mos! Motor blew a seal or gasket 1 month after 1 year warranty on motor expired. Shame on me for purchasing something with a motor warranted for only a year. This machine is not durable. I cared for and used the machine as recommended and still blew a motor. Spend a little more and buy a machine the manufacturer feels will last more than a year. $45 / month is a lot for doing laundry at home. I was hoping for at least 5 years out of this when I bought it. The machine is also noisy, loud and performs inconsistently. There are better machines out there - buy one of those. Hope you noticed you can't select NOT DURABLE as a con - big con!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I do not like this washer This washer was professionaly installed and leveled. This washer is not performing well for me. I end up with a white residue on my dark clothes, if I don't use the 2nd rinse - I have tried cleaning the washer, and different HE detergents. Hardly saving water doing this. It sometimes does not spin right, leaving clothes very wet - I have to put back on spin - and other times clothes come out of the washer bone dry - can tell they were never even in water. As for being large capacity, I feel I could put more clothes in my older, smaller capacity "normal" agitator washer, than this. Overall I am very sorry I purchased this washer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad washer i have had this washer about a year now i really liked the ideal that it stated made in the usa, but that is about the only thing i like about it, i do not feel like it get your clothes clean, even when using a boost with your detergent which is extra money so i do not save anything as i now use a boost with every load and even then you have to pre treat every little thing on you clothes or it will still have the stain on it when it comes out of the washer, in fact the last load i did when i took the clothes out the shirt on top of the load which was like a med load was still dry it never even got wet so i had to wash the load all over again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This washer really does the job and is easy to use. We purchased this machine to replace a large capacity Kenmore from the 80's. without an agitator the clothes do not wrap around anything and come out much dryer. It seems to me that most of the negative reviews (except for the occational lemon) are "user error". If you READ the instruction manual and refer to it the first few times you use the machine, you can get a great performance out of it. I live in Arizona and line dry most of the time. for the light weight items that come out a bit too wrinkly, I put them in the dryer for a few minutes while I am hanging out the rest of the load. Come back and get them and hang them out at that time-problem solved.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is the worst Maytag washer that We have ever owned I have never owned any other brand of washer in 45 years of marriage and three children.It has never crossed my mind to buy any other brand because my Maytags always did what they were supposed to do....GET CLOTHES CLEAN! I can tell you that this machine does not do this and one reason is that very often the clothes never get wet.Regardless of how well I pre-treat and load the clothes exactly as the manual says I frequently need to rewash them.Another annoyance is that I can't add an item during the wash cycle without 'PAUSING' which means that the machine must be totally restarted which means more of the expensive 'he' detergent.I HATE ITS PERFORMANCE!!!!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from STAY AWAY FROM THIS WASHER Purchased this washer one year ago. Had trouble with it from the start. Rubber start button got stuck inside on the first load and never popped back out. Did not get clothes clean, sometimes they were still dry when I would get them out of the washer and would smell. Right after the warranty expired the washer quit spinning. Had to put the dial on drain and spin in order to finish load. Finally had a repairman out who told us the circuit board went out (cost us $315.00). He replaced and he couldn't even figure it out. Getting a new washer...anything BUT a Maytag. I used to think Maytag was a great I will stay away from any of their products. Confidence - ZERO!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst Washer I Ever Purchased Purchased Maytag Centennial Washer 13 months ago (May 2011) because I heard all my life that Maytag rarely needs repairing. I do not remember my parents having any other washer. Thirteen months later to my disappointment my brand new, long anticipated first Maytag washer needs to be replaced. A couple of weeks earlier the washer started making loud scrapping noises during spinning. This got progressively louder and lasted longer. THEN today June 14, 2012 the washer stopped spinning. Despite my efforts to rearrange the laundry then decreasing the load the washer failed to work. Tomorrow I will know what the Maytag repairman has to say.
