Top Features

EcoConserve® Low Water Wash

Exceeding federal energy standards by 30%, these extra-efficient washers and dryers are rated Tier 33 by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (ECC) and help to save even more money on utility bills.

Advanced Vibration Control

4 steel rods attach to the tub to create a pendulum effect; gravity drives the basket to the center while the stainless steel springs dampen side to side movement. All of this combines to give better off balance load movement control.

ENERGY STAR® Qualified

Additional Features

3.6 cu. ft. Capacity

CEE Tier III Qualified

Based on the Consortium for Energy Efficiency qualified product listings--with Tier III being the most efficient. This model features advanced water & energy savings and may qualify for rebates from local utility companies.

Low Water Wash with EcoConserve

Use less water and get better cleaning performance through concentrated wash action. Low water wash technology enables the detergent to penetrate better and pretreat soils with a concentrated mix.

Faster Cleaning

Bravos® washers clean faster than front loaders2.

IntelliClean™ Impeller

Available in high efficiency top load washers, this feature is a wash plate with fins at the bottom of the wash basket. The wash plate continuously moves clothes through the water to clean more gently than a traditional agitator, and takes up less space to maximize capacity.

800 RPM Spin Speed

Stainless steel wash baskets are powered by an 800 RPM spin speed to help clothes come out of the washer feeling the right amount of dry.

IntelliFill™ Automatic Water Level Sensor

The IntelliFill™ sensor regulates the amount of water being used, making automatic adjustments based on the size of the load and type of fabric. By using less water, you'll save money and natural resources while still delivering improved cleaning performance.

Electronic Controls

These controls allow for more precise control of wash settings. An LED status bar provides detailed information about the status of the wash cycles.

Variable temperature settings

1/3 HP PSC Motor

Permanent split capacitor motor that runs at a higher power factor thus giving better performance. It also delivers lower heat build-up, lower operating costs and a smoother, quieter operation.

10-Year Limited Parts Warranty4 on Motor and Stainless Steel Wash Basket

We're so confident that these washers are built to get your clothes clean for years, we back them with a 10-year limited parts warranty4 on the direct drive motor and stainless steel wash basket.

Smooth Balance™ Suspension System

Thanks to Maytag® Commercial Technology, this feature reduces vibration and noise in washers to help keep loads balanced while spinning at top speed. In dryers, drum rollers work with drum glides to reduce vibration.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever!! I purchased the washer/dryer set 6/2010 and from the beginning the washer didn't get the clothes clean. I usually run everything on the jumbo setting because it seems to fill more water in the tub. I have had clothes come out with completely dry spots on them, so how can that be clean?? Now, the washer is making a loud squealing sound when it runs through the spin cycle. It gets louder as the spin gets slower. I'm not sure what is wrong with it and it drives me crazy. I guess I will have to get it checked but will probably end up costing more than a new washer. I will never buy this type again. I'm all for saving resources but I want my clothes to be clean when I wash them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Large Piece of Junk! This machine looks great on the showroom floor, but in reality it makes me long for my old machine. First of all, these low water capacity machines simply DON'T do the job of a tub with a full sized agitator. Also, the top is sloped so if you want to fold clothes on top, they will soon slide right off and, there is no place to set your detergent or bleach bottle. Oh, yes, as to the bleach. With low water, I can't use a full cup of bleach for our whites, because they come out with a heavy bleach smell. Also, this weird thing occasionally happens. At the end of the wash, an item of clothing will completely encase the other wash like a tucked-in bubble (photo attached)! Another thing...there is enough room between the agitator and the tub that stray coins get stuck in between and are nearly impossible to remove. And, there is NO way to disable the end-of-wash chime, so I have to close off the doors if I want to put in a load at bedtime (better electric rate). And, the locking-lid safety feature takes too long to unlock if you discover you need to add more clothes (sometimes up to 20+ seconds--hey! I need to get going!) I also dislike the fact that I cannot get the tub filling until AFTER I add the clothes and close the lid (like we are too stupid to make sure the baby didn't fall in before we close and lock the lid!?) And, just today, I pulled out my brown jeans and they had whitish "rub" marks on them which weren't there when they went into the tub. This has happened before with other clothing-I only hope that another washing will remedy this. I truly HATE this machine. It has SO many negatives but I spent enough on it, and the matching dryer, that I feel I have to put up with the nuisance for awhile. The best I can say is, --it's just a tiny bit better than beating my clothes on a rock!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This washing machine does not consistently clean your laundry The reviews stated "does not do well with dirty clothes." I am here to tell you that is the truth. My husband and sons are farmers. This washing machine will not wash 3 pair of jeans in one load. I have the 3.6. I have to wash the jeans separately and wash them twice if I want to see the dirt off. Often when the load is done the top garment is stretched across the top of the load and not wet. It never moved after being the last item loaded. So it gets washed again. I just washed a mattress pad. Same story. Most of the mattress pad was still dry. This machine never pulled the mattress pad down to the water level. I loved my old Maytag washing machine with the center agitator so much better. I do not feel this agitatorless washing machine gets our clothes clean. The clothes don't even smell fresh.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You will be disappointed I wish that I would had done my reseach before purchasing this machine. You are not able to soak clothes nor are you able to wash if the cycle has not complete. I have had to drain and spin four times, unplug the machine and waited two days and still could not wash my clothes. I got so frustrated that I went to the wash house. If the computer is stuck YOU ARE STRUCK. Please do not purchase this machine. You will be so disappointed and remember the warrantly do not include labor. I wish I could trade and get another type of machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I really wish there was something about this washer I liked. 1. If you forget to push in the soap tray, especially if you have always just tossed the soap into the machine and are not used to this extra step, you will have to rewash the whole load. 2. The low spin cycle leaves clothes wet & the high spin cycle leaves them so wrinkled even the dryer can't remove them. I now have to iron almost everything which negates the energy saving feature. Also, large items are stretched like a drum. 3. The machine uses so little water that spot treated stains take more washings to remove the stain. One shirt took 4 washings! I'm really not happy with this washer and I'm surprised at the quality. We have owned Matag washers and dryers in the past and have always been very satisfied with their performance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My MVW500XW I remember the Maytag repairman who was so lonely with no work to do as Maytag was very reliable. Maytag appliances rarely broke down for years. My Bravo-X I bought on this reputation. I was disabled at the time I could not afford the extended warranty. It always made a grinding noise from the first use. All normal we were told. After two years of use, every part from the motor to the inner basket froze solid. Total cost of repair $420-500 dollars. As Whirlpool said, I only paid for 1-2 years of use. That is what the extended warranty buys-the privilege of more years of use. No Whirlpool product made is intended to last longer than two years before replacement becomes necessary. If a product lasts longer than that it is an exception to the rule.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Design Issues Maytag products have always been at the top on my list, however, there are some issues with this model: pushing buttons rather than turning knobs when making water temperature/soil level/start-stop machine decisions, is awkward and difficult. When the machine engages, the top loading door locks and it is annoying not to be able to toss a forgotten item into the washer, immediately, and be on your way. I don't appreciate the machine indicators lighting or 'sounding' as I open the appliance lid. In addition, the lid and soap dispenser could be more durable ; Today's detergents containers are cumbersome and to have a FLAT surface on the washing machine is helpful when needing to balance/open and pour liquids-the surface surrounding the tub opening is rounded. As this model operates, it is very quiet, but it is not user friendly from this woman's viewpoint.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good if your clothes are not really dirty I have had numerous issues with this washer and the quality of the cleaning. Because it barely uses any water, colors tend to bleed onto other fabrics. I am using high efficiency detergent, but the level of cleaning leaves a lot to be desired. It leaves white residue on things like sheets. If you don't use the heavy duty mode, your clothes do not come out clean. I bought this because we pay OUTRAGEOUS rates for water and electricity in Southern California and I am very conscious about preserving our environment, but I have ended up taking things to a local laundromat if I want to really make sure they are clean. I am not really happy with this washer. If anyone has any suggestions, I would be interested. I have tried to sort clothing by color, but darker shades of blue will bleed onto lighter shades. I have tried doing smaller loads to see if they get any cleaner, but it doesn't really matter. NOT IMPRESSED. This is my first Maytag and I was SO excited to get it.
