Maytag® 4.8 cu. ft. Bravos XL® HE Top Load Washer with Cold Wash Cycle 4.6 5 192 192
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 in a row 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 6, 2014
Awesome This product is pure awesomeness. Highly recommended machine. February 25, 2014
Goodbye Front Load Washer / Dryer! The Maytag Bravos XL series replaced my GE front loader washer & dryer. The washer started to smell like mildew ( A common problem with FL washers), and the bearing went out on the dryer causing a hideous squeak. I was not a happy camper, as the GE was pricey and only lasted 7 years. I did a ton of research online, read just as many reviews, and went to the store to compare first hand for a replacement washer/dryer set. I decided no more front loader and went with the Maytag Bravos XL 4.8 C.U. Ft., and I am estatic with my purchase. Yes, the set is almost as exspensive as a name brand front loader. However, this is an H.E. washer with a huge capacity; and on the powerwash cycle, it will clean a king size comforter from top to bottom with ease. You will need to follow the directions and load it like an old style washer that has an agitator in the middle, and use only HE detergents for an awesome clean and optimal results. My only con is the washer has a very deep-well for you vertically challenged folks. Very nice Washer/Dryer! January 3, 2014
Very Quiet This machine takes a bit to get used to especially if you used an agitator before. I was a bit skeptical at first and it took some trial and error to figure out which settings work best for different types of laundry items. Example... shower curtains clean better on the Sheets setting but not as well on the Normal setting. Overall it cleans spots and stains as well as my old Maytag agitator machine. Both types of machines required me to pre-treat. I would recommend this washer if your clothes aren't normally heavily soiled. If they are you may want to opt for a front loader. However I have never owned a front loader so I cannot speak for their cleaning performance. My biggest shock about this machine is the energy star rating. It said it will cost me $11 a year in energy to run this machine. Wow.. that's hard to believe but I'll take it. March 10, 2014
Large capacity. I like the large capacity of this washing machine. Usually it take 8-10 loads when we do our weekly laundry. It used to take a whole day to wash clothes! Not anymore. It's now cut to about 5 loads. And the drying time has also reduced due to this washer's high spin cycle and extract maximum water off the clothes. My only disappointment, is the amount of water it use. While I'm happy that it use a lot less water, I felt that this machine's water level during the wash cycle is not ample enough to clean the clothes effectively. I found that setting it to BULKY put more water and seems to wash better. I just wish that the engineers who designed this HE models include a water level settings to allow owners to override the default settings and add more water to satisfy the owners' desires/wish. March 8, 2014
Does what it's suppose to After reading several reviews (mostly good but some not so great) we went ahead and chose this machine for a few reasons; It's a Maytag, it was second from the top of the line and we didn't need the steam setting and the price was right. There were others with a slightly higher capacity but a couple of cubic feet of laundry wasn't going to make a difference. It washes clothes well but unless we're washing towels and other 'heavy' stuff, we don't use the maximumm spin setting. It can suck the towel treads right into the tumbler. We look forward to many years of happy washing with our new Maytag HE top loader, but trust me, if we don't, you'll hear about it. March 9, 2014
Out of balance al the time Haven't washed very many loads without the machine getting out of balance. Doesn't matter how many clothes are in the basket, a few or average it will throw them to one side. Have to be close by to listen for the unbalance thumping. Wish water levels would be a little higher, doesn't seem to use very much at all. April 2, 2014
large capacity Two features I don't like. 1. The tub is very large and deep so you can fit a lot of clothes and that's great. But it's difficult for a short woman to reach the bottom of the tub to remove the clothes. 2. The water level is automatically determined by the machine so it can save water. I can't override the water level for more water if I want clothes to soak. April 15, 2014
