Maytag® 3.8 cu. ft. HE Top Load Washer with Fountain™ Impeller is rated 4.3319 out of 5 by 2,642.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great top-loader for the money I bought this Maytag November 2013 when my first Maytag died after 22 years of faithful service. I always wanted a front-loader, but my repairman (whom I've trusted implicitly for the last 9 years) recommended against it (his wife has one and he's constantly fixing the seals on it). It took a leap of faith to get used to the low water usage, but I'm okay with it now. The clothes come out just as clean as with a fully filled bin (I use HE SA-8 liquid detergent). I also like the no-agitator feature - allows for more clothes, but I STILL can't fit a double bed comforter inside, as is advertised. I don't like using the Downy ball for fabric softener. It doesn't fully drain, so if you pick up something that it happens to be wrapped up in and the ball is upside down, it will drain out on your clean clothes. I'd rather they'd put in a softener dispenser next to the bleach dispenser. I don't like the locking lid feature, as I'm constantly finding more stuff to drop in after the cycle has already started. The washer allows you to interrupt the cycle initially, but after one or two times doing so, then it will just stop. When it's spinning it's a bit loud, though not obnoxious. The laundry room is on the 2nd floor (near the bedrooms), so if we do laundry at night, we have to close the door. In 2012 I bought the matching dryer ($627) and, overall, am very happy with the set. I live just north of Kansas City on the Kansas side and, with removal of the old washer, delivery and installation of the new washer and tax, I paid $648.00.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality Product It seems like a sturdy, good quality, product, but clothes come out more wrinkled with the High Efficiency Washer than with my old traditional agitator washer. I did several experiments and realized there will be less wrinkling if you use the deep water setting or the Hand Wash setting. These settings have lower spin speeds and deeper water, so less wrinkling. Plus the Hand Wash setting probably has less movement during washing also. I wish it had a short cycle. That might cut down on wrinkling also. It is deeper than my old machine so I have to really stretch down into it to get the clothes out. I will say, it is very, very quiet!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still new but very happy so far The dryer is still new so we haven't had it very long, but so far it is working very well. For the price it is a great deal. It was easy to set up & install. I had to reverse the door for our laundry room set up. But it was not difficult. The instructions for this are included. The instructions were not exactly correct ( number of screws & position of hinges in drawings), but if you read carefully the ontructionss were adequate. The one complaint I would have is that it is purchased and shipped without a power cord. What's up with that? I am fairly handy & it was not rocket science, but a lot of people might have trouble installing the cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job with less water usage So far so good. I've had my new Maytag washer about a month and I'm satisfied with the cleaning performance. The controls are pretty easy to use - I printed a copy of the operating instructions for different loads which I keep taped to the cabinet above the washer as reference. It isn't as noisy as some reviews suggested, however, as the washer is in our laundry room far from the bedrooms, I haven't had to be that concerned with noise. My only issue is that large loads do still bang around a bit - I thought these washers were less likely to have issues with an uneven or heavy load. This unit does the job, looks good and was priced right. I'm satisfied so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was doubtful but I honestly believe my clothes are cleaner. I didn't want a new washer. My 20+ year old basic maytag was doing just fine, thank you. But it died. Sunddenly and with fanfare. I didn't even go to the appliance store. I called and told them I wanted a new basic Maytag. Well, "basic" doesn't mean the same these days. First shock was the price which was about double the original one. No more expensive than any of the other brands, though. At least there was still one I could open the lid later and add clothes. I have to admit it's even quieter than the old old one. Kind of spooky the way it decides how much water to add. Honestly, I do believe the clothes are cleaner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Have mixed feelings about this washer. I have had this machine for a few months now. It does wash the clothes fine, but there are several things I do not like about it. First and foremost, my clothes come out extremely wrinkled. I have tried the wrinkle control setting but there is not much difference. I can't help by wonder if this machine is destroying my clothes. I was told that machines without agitators are more gentle on your clothes, but this does not seen to be the case. The machine is very noisy and takes much longer than my conventional washer did. I really can't recommend this machine. The customer service however, was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll never go back! There is no doubt, this is the best washing machine I've ever had. We bought a top loader HE Maytag Centennial a couple of months ago. The key to this washer is reading and following directions! It is the fastest, quietest and most efficient washer ever. We wipe it out after each use and leave the lid open so it dries out well thus no mold ever (once a week I use vinegar water on it too). We both just retired and look for this to take us through! We love the low water/detergent/electricity usage. Our septic guy told us we could easily go an extra year on our pumping. I kind of wish our old 19 year old machine had died a bit sooner than it did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't say enough about this machine We do at least 2 loads a day, including bedding and comforters. My son, who has severe autism, can use the washer almost independently. To follow the instructions exactly, you need to leave the impeller clear, so he places a clean piece of stovepipe into the machine, loads the clothes in around it, tosses his detergent pod into the pipe, then removes the pipe to close the lid and start the machine. When I or my husband use the machine, we really like the choice of cycles. We love that we were able to keep using our favorite unscented detergent. My only complaint is that it would be nice to have an end-of-cycle buzzer, but this doesn't diminish the experience for us. It is loud and the cycle takes longer than the old washer, but we'd rather save money on the electric and water bills.
