Bravos XL® HE Top Load Washer with PowerWash® System is rated 4.6136 out of 5 by 176.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One man's take on laundry There are few things that a man can do that pleases his wife more than doing the laundry. Over the past 30 years I have done thousands of loads but it has never been enjoyable - at least until now. Recently we, that means I, bought a Maytag Bravos XL top load washer and the matching dryer. Wow! They are incredible. The clothes are cleaner, laundry take less time and uses less energy. They are whisper quite which is important since my business office is just down the hall from the laundry room and best of all their large capacity means fewer loads. Now, after all these years I can truly say that I enjoy doing laundry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied Customer I owned a Maytag front loader for 15 years and was not sure how my wash would come out being a Top Loader. I really like going back to a Top Loader and my whites and colors were so bright with very little water, this really got my attention. So I heard it might not do well with heavy soiled jeans. My husband is a contractor and gets very dirty. I washed 5 pairs of jean shorts and one pair of long pants with the oxy on heavy duty cycle and they never came out so clean. I'm convinced I made a good choice. It has many cycles to choose from to make sure your clothes get clean. Very pleased with my Top Loader!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful Variable Capacity I bought this for the energy and water savings. My clothes appear to be getting clean but because there is less water they are abrading each other more. I am using the second rinse feature as I am so allergic. I tried to wash some pillows but could not get the load to balance. I also do not like the fact that I cannot just fill the tub and leave things to soak for long periods. If you try to turn off the machine to leave it to soak it actually empties, no matter how much you press "off." While I do recommend it for the energy and water savings I have reservations due to the lack of flexibilty allowing me to fill the tub for soaking...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Washer! I purchased this washer because I believe Maytag provides superior cleaning and durability. For 24 years I owned and operated a dry cleaning plant, so I feel I am pretty well versed concerning cleaning needs/results. This machine delivers exceptional cleaning while using reduced water flow. Yes, your clothes get clean and smell fresh. As with all newer efficiency machines, cycle times are longer but the load capacity is enlarged, meaning your two loads became one. Machine runs relatively quiet and cycle sensors are audible. I would recommend this washer to anyone looking for a quality product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from State of the art design and features This washer is beautiful. It has all the latest features that you would want or need. Very quiet operation. Cleaned clothes great! Plenty of capacity for big loads including my king size comforter. I did my due diligence on deciding which new washer to buy. Very pleased that I chose this Maytag Bravo XL MVWB950YG toploader for my home. Well worth the money spent and expect many many years of dependablity from the best name in washers in the business....MAYTAG. Stay lonely Maytag repairman !!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am very pleased with how this machine works. After 40 years of marriage & 2 Maytag washers I couldn't go with anything but a Maytag. My first Maytag was left to me by my mother in-law. It was an antique that lasted through 2 babies with countless diapers. She figured it was over 40 years old when it died. I bought a new Maytag washer that held up under countless washings of blue jeans, sweat shirts & insulated coveralls. I wanted new technology, so my son took my old washer & dryer for use in his mechanic shop where they continue to work. This new washer, I have no idea how it gets clothes clean but I'm impressed with how clean the clothes are & how dry they are when they come out of the washer. I've had the machine several months now & can not find one bad things to say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Bravos XL! I was not excited about getting a new HE washing machine but my old machine died. It was time. I knew going into this purchase I wanted a top load machine. I thought I'd miss my old style machine but I like that there is no agitator in the middle. I didn't see how it could clean well using so much less water but it does a great job. The key to success with these new HE machines: read the manual and follow the instructions. It works differently than the old style washers, but if you follow the instructions, it's foolproof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product excells at what it does. This machine excells in almost all areas of performance. There was very little to do to install it right out of the box. It is well constructed and easily handles big and small loads. The cycles and refinement selections are easy to use and follow. So far in almost 5 months of use there have been no issues. The only drawback at this point is there is more sound than I expected. It is not so much that the sound is loud, but different and that makes it noticeable. However, we do not have a dedicated laundry room. This machine is located in close proximity to the kitchen, dinette area, and living room. Therefore any sound is noticeable. Overall I am extremely pleased with this machine and it has lived up to my expectations and more.
