HOW DO HE WASHERS CLEAN DIFFERENTLY?

HE washers use a specific high-efficiency detergent designed to work with lower water levels while still providing a powerful clean. Compared to older models, HE washers save 6,000 gallons of water per year for an average family, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. They're available as top loading agitator, top loading impeller and front loading models.

If more water gives you extra cleaning confidence, there are washers that let you add more water when you want it. Maytag offers a line of top load washers featuring the Deep Fill option, which uses maximum water levels to help break up tough messes.
