4.5 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer with Steam in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1040.

Then, a part in the machine broke and there is a loose ball bearing in the machine and it won't work. We have now been without a washing machine for almost a month, have spent over 15 hours on the phone with Maytag and had 2 of their technicians come to our home, diagnose the problem and then refuse to fix the machine (say it should be replaced instead). Still after this, Maytag won't replace the machine and only continues to offer to have a third factory service company come to diagnose the problem. Can't recommend this machine to anyone after our experience where nobody cares (3 people at Maytag have separately told us the machine should be replaced but were overruled by supervisors).

The design is flawed and maytag ( and Home depot) refuses to honor the warranty. After washing, the spin cycle is insufficient to dry the clothes. As a result, it take 4+ hours in the dryer ( and $$$$) to dry 3 towels. We had 3 technicians and no resolution. One technician came twice and said the " these new energy efficient machines can only handle 3 towels per wash and you can't mix towels with sheets". We purchased the machine from Home depot and they have NO RETURN policy for major appliance. You are left to deal with Maytag who are unwilling to exchange this machine as it is a lemon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic washer I upgraded from an older agitator washer, to this Maytag front loader. I am blown away how much cleaner our clothes are, using a fraction of the water. It is also much faster, completing a full load in about 45 mins. I read a number of reviews saying that this washer was loud, and I can't possibly imagine how it could be described that way. They only noises we hear are the water going in and coming out. The unit is very well insulated and incredibly quiet, particularly during the spin cycle. Overall, a truly fantastic product. It's well worth a read through the manual to understand what the washer is capable of and the various settings. For example, I was very impressed with how wrinkle free clothes come out using the winkle free setting on the washer and matching dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great washing machine. I owned a Maytag Neptune before purchasing this one which was 20 years old. I was going to go with another brand but decided to stick with Maytag. I read the reviews on this one and decided to go with it. This is amazing. Nice and quiet, comes with many features, washes really well and rinses almost as if the clothes are dry when they come out. I do about 16 loads a week so I need a high quality and good working machine and I found it when I purchased this. It is the next step to a commercial machine. Love it.

I unfortunately had to retire my Maytag after 30 years and replaced with this one. I would have preferred to purchase something simple without computer programming but there wasn't anything that could even come close to matching my old Maytag. I did lots of research and although I understand it's actually made by Whirlpool, I don't expect more than 10 years from this machine. I can't believe how my clothes are nearly dry when I take them out of the machine. I know it's more energy efficient that my old washer and I'm guessing that I'm also saving on energy by my clothes not needing to be in the dryer as long as before. The time I spend doing laundry now seems to take way less time. I've only been using it for a few weeks but at this point I'm loving it and very happy I chose this machine.

Purchased Maytag front loading washer and after 1 1/2 years it needed a major repair. $433+ Tub replacement. No helpful support from customer service. Expensive product but inferior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timely Purchase Repairman came out to look at my old front loader and explained it would cost more to repair the drive than it would to buy a new one! I guess disposable is the new normal. As luck would have it Home Depot had a sale on and it was the last day. My wife and I quickly did a massive amount of research and both concluded that this unit was the best value with the features we needed. We are very pleased with our decision! So far it has exceeded our expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd give it 10 stars if I could..... I have had my washer for a little over a month now and I just love it. We actually purchased a Maytag at the suggestion of a friend who owns an appliance repair business - he told us that, of all the brands, he sees the least problems with Maytag. After having several issues with our previous front-loader of a different brand, it had gotten to the point where - even though it was only 6 years old - it made more sense to replace it that keep fixing it. I am so glad we chose this washer - the large capacity makes it easy to wash my king-size sheets and blankets and the bedding feature really does help keep them from getting so tangled up. I recently used the steam feature for the first time to get out some really heavy stains on my husband's work clothes and it did an amazing job. Also, even though we've owned two front loaders prior to this, both my husband (yes, he does laundry too!) and I were just amazed at how well the washer spins out the clothes. They feel almost dry before we ever put them into the dryer. And it is SO quiet - our laundry room is off our kitchen and not far from the living room and always before we could definitely hear the washer spinning (plus knocking and banging when I had a large load in) when we were watching TV. Now, we hear nothing until the chimes go off. I've already recommended this washer to several friends! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
