Maytag® 4.5 cu. ft. Bravos XL® HE Top Load Washer with Window 4.6 5 404 404
Actual washing capability is poor. We have had our Maytag Bravos washer for approximately a month or so now. I am pleased with the large sized capacity but the actual washing of clothes, performance wise is very poor. The machine does not take out stains or every day dirt on a first (and in some cases 2nd)wash. Spaghetti stains take minimum of 2 washes to remove even with pre-treating. Gravy stains on a table cloth still are not removed. This is after trying different settings and water temps in an attempt to get them clean. What good is having a water and energy saving machine if you have to wash clothes multiple times in an attempt to get them clean? My 20 year old washing machine did a much better job. It may have used more water but it did the job it was supposed to do. The Bravos does not. I also do not like how wrinkled the clothes come out of the washer. I know it is because the machine uses less water and compacts the clothes. You have the choice of less spin, but even choosing the less spin cycle doesn't make the wrinkling less. January 20, 2014
It has a couple of good features, but needs improvement. I shopped around, researched washers, and read reviews. I got this washer on sale and saved a significant amount of money. I wish I'd paid full price for a different one. This washer claims to wash extra large loads. I bought it expecting to be able to wash my comforters. While putting the comforters into this washer doesn't harm the washer, they aren't clean when they come out. They ball up and wrap around themselves, leaving all the dirt and lint in one spot that is impossible to clean. Bulky items throw it off-balance. The cycles are incredibly long. The washer is noisy. While it doesn't make the loud sloshing/agitating sound of a standard washer, it sounds like a jet taking off. Washing clothes makes me feel like I live on a runway. All in all, it does wash my clothes and holds up to daily use, but I wouldn't recommend it. There are better washers for the money and I'll be replacing mine as soon as I can. February 16, 2014
Second Maytag washer and dryer set This was a major change in washing machines for us; we always preferred the normal type agitator. We were leaning toward Samsung but negative reviews plus made overseas changed our minds. We have concerns about all the electronics in the new Maytags but options are very few for the old mechanical timers. We read lots of reviews with the biggest complaints being twisted, wrinkled clothes coming out of the washer after spin cycle. And yes this is an issue but we use only medium spin extraction and we can live with it. And YES if you use too much detergent you will have white soap looking residue on dark clothes. Use extra rinse cycle to cure this OR cut back on your detergent. We have always used Whirlpool and Maytag washer and dryers, with good results. Made in USA is a strong selling point for us.

I love the window and large capacity but am disappointed with the overall wash cycle. I enjoy the large capacity and window access on top, that's what triggered me to purchase this washer. But as I continue to use the appliance I am more disappointed with the wash cycles. The cycles are MUCH longer than my other set and a lot of the clothes are out of the water?? Kinda concerned how properly my clothes are getting cleaned when they are not in water... So this is where the glass top comes into play, I stand and watch the cycles to see how well they get mixed around. And again disappointed. The wash cycle is not a vigorous cycle, merely spins and spins and the clothes are stuck to the outside of the drum ... ( like kids on the Gravatron at the Fair...) But while washing it makes an unpleasant noise, like its hard for the machine to complete the performance. The end of cycle alarm is not very loud either, my laundry room is only 2 rooms away from main living area, and I rarely hear it..Really wishing I had done more research before I purchased this product, and hadn't relied on looks so much, I don't recommend it.

Give it a chance... it's new :) Our 15 year old basic washing machine, a standard top loader, was done... several repairs by me, and I was tired of ordering parts. Time for a replacement. Being the interested husband type, I offered my bride one of the new-fangled front loading high efficiency jobs, which she quickly declined. She had used one previously and said it made the clothes smell bad. More on that later. She did like the idea of high efficiency, but thought the front loading had something to do with bad smells, so a top loader was in order. She is a Whirlpool girl, I am a Maytag fan, so I went shopping while she was out of town. Interested, but smart. I found this unit and it looked absolutely cavernous inside. It does, in fact, have decent capacity but not as much as it looks like just gazing in. The price was right, so I bought the floor model and took it home that day (Sears). I hauled out the old unit, replaced all the hoses, and hooked up the Maytag by the instructions. Straight forward, no surprises. I read the instruction manual and, first surprise, it needs special detergent. Wrong detergents can cause excess sudsing and... there it is! BAD ODORS. Hmmmm. Off I go to find H/E detergent. Once I get home I discover that the detergent I was already using was the self-same high efficiency Tide I just bought. Live and learn. Note to others- look for the little HE symbol, you probably already have some of this stuff. Test load, distributed as the manual shows. This is what I meant about the capacity. Still good, but you can't just load it to the top like an agitator standard one. Arranged around the tub so as not to cover the center of the agitator loses about a forth of what it appears to the uninitiated to be. No big deal, still held a good amount and probably as much as a similar washer with the big agitator in the middle. Now, to select a cycle. I'd love to say all the buttons made it hard, but it is husband-doing-the-wash easy. Tons of options, but all pretty common-sensical. Off we go. Here's where my title comes in. Now, I have to admit I really liked the glass lid, which is part of what drew me to this model. I like seeing things operate. Hey, sue me, I am a guy. So I am watching, and... I was certain this thing must be broken. A squirt of water here, a slow turn there, I can hear water moving that I can't see, nothing seems to be getting dragged to the depths like I am used to in a regular washer. No way can clothing get clean with this sort of treatment. It doesn't even cover the clothes with water and suds. I tolerantly watched, feeling a little better with the jet-engine sounding spin cycles. I assure you, it looks nothing like a "normal" washer working. While it whirred and squirted it's way through the cycle, I read the rest of the manual. There's a part on cleaning the washer, and it has a cycle just for that. Don't clean it, and guess what??? BAD ODORS. I am now convinced that my loving spouse's experiences with bad smells were a combination of wrong detergents and no periodic cleaning of the dastardly front loader she used. Mental note: purchase cleaner on next Wal-mart venture. Ding-dong... the washer let's me know it's done. And amazingly enough, the clothes seem clean. Over the next few weeks, we wash pretty much everything in the house, testing the different cycles on all manner of clothes, bed linens, comforters. Everything not only gets clean, it gets noticeably CLEANER than before. And smells better, to boot. Total success, and I look pretty darn spiffy in my little lady's eyes. So we get a month in, time I ran the cleaning cycle. No bad odors getting in our machine! This is the only time it actually looks like it has enough water in it to do something. Finishes a good while later, but smells nice and clean. So, overall I rate this a great washing machine. If it lasts like my other Maytag things, it will be around a long time. And all the while it is saving me money on cleaning, saving the environment some abuse, and is also supposed to be gentler on materials. All good here, very satisfied. As is the wife. That's a win-win in anyone's book. February 10, 2014
Amazing Excellence. Sweet sound of silence. When this washer came off the truck all I could think was , This is nice ! After installing it (myself) , I was like a little kid at Christmas . Couldn't wait to use it. My wife and I stood and watched as it worked , we were amazed at how quiet it was ! The large basket seemed so big. The features were amazing yet so simple to figure just how to use. This unit will pay for itself in a matter of months. For the first time in 10 years my water bill dropped by 20% ! I still can't believe how quiet this is ! I would never have thought that any one could build a washer, that's quieter than a dryer. Looking forward to using this for years+ years to come !

A Wonderful Product with great features I am very pleased with the Bravos XL washer. It is very easy to understand how to operate. It has special settings for your sheets and bulky loads which helps when you wash your bedding. I have had some problems with my quilt getting away from the side walls and covering the center of the tub, although I have been able to rearrange one time and it finished spinning out. I washed (2)throw rugs together and they did wonderful. No problems at all. I am really amazed at how much faster I can do my laundry now. Having the window to see through is a big plus, as you can see what is going on inside, before you have to Pause it, to open the lid. Thanks for a Wonderful Product. I replaced my Maytag Atlantis Washer with this and I am well pleased. October 11, 2013
Good washer with a few glitches My wife and I love the capacity of this washer and its many pre-programed wash cycles. The noise level is acceptable. It sounds like a jet engine when the spin is winding up, but not so loud as to be disturbing. Clothes washed in this machine come out very clean. The reason that I only gave it 3 stars for performance is that it doesn't always get the water level correct. Certain garments shed too much water without being soaked. So there is not really enough water to do the job. The clothes do seem to get clean, however. Also, the washer should use more water for the rinse cycle. The clothes come out with a strong detergent odor. I assume that the odor is due to detergent that has not been completely rinsed away. More water should help this. I know that this defeats the purpose of an HE washer, but having any residual detergent in my clothes is not acceptable. One final comment regarding balance of the drum. Many HE washers have complaints about the user needing to spend a lot of time redistributing clothes so that the washer will complete the spin cycle. This washer has not shown any sign of that problem. We have washed everything from king size sheets and shower curtains to heavy trousers with no problems at all. Dave January 6, 2014
