4.5 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer with Steam in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1062.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine! We purchased this washing machine almost two months ago to replace our GE Front Loader. I was hesitant to purchase another front loader as our GE machine had been a nightmare with failing to spin heavy clothes well and making a terrible noise when spinning towels, whites etc. We love our new Maytag machine! It is a quiet machine that spins clothes exceptionally well without any vibrating or movement. My only regret is that we did not buy this machine sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine After extensive research and the inability to obtain the MHW8200FW, which was our first choice, we decided to go with the MHW5500FW. Turns out all our trepidation was really much ado about nothing. We were most concerned about noise and vibrations, since our laundry room is on the 2nd floor above our living room and our prior machine, a Kenmore Elite would shake and be heard while downstairs. I finally decided to take the chance with this model and forget about the naysayers, a very small minority, who did write reviews citing their unhappiness with noise. Bottom line, the machine is quiet, no vibrations felt downstairs and a normal load takes 47 minutes (another concern where people would speak of very long cycle time). The settings I have used - normal, cold, delicate and bedding, all have worked as described. It is lovely to have a light in the tub, and just know that the light goes off after a few minutes when leaving the door ajar to dry the machine. We also decided on Maytag due to 2 conversations with appliance repair people about their issues with repairing LG and Samsung. Overall, we are very happy with this purchase, and I strongly advise to shop loca. That allowed us to have very qualified professionals install our machine, upgrade the hoses to stainless braided, match the price of big box stores, take away the old for free and just be accessible and knowledgeable with their years of expertise.

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).

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful washer! We replaced our Maytag Neptune front loader with this model. We read the negative reviews, and after doing 4 large loads we have had ZERO noise, and it cleans beautifully. We do have it on the bottom floor or our house (concrete foundation) and on tile floor. We brought it home ourselves and installed it, making sure it was level before using. I wonder if the noise issue is dependent on what level your drain outlet is, and where it is placed. It really is so quiet the only sound we hear is the water filling and draining, and you can only hear it when you are in the laundry room. To quote my teenage boy, "You can fit a buttload of clothes in this! It is awesome!".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far So GREAT but.. It Works great so far. It gets the whites REALLY white, and seems to get the clothes so clean with such a little amount of water its amazing. I am not sure it would fit 29 towels though , and was not thrilled with the results when i washed my queen size comforter. (I purchased this mostly for large comforters and dog beds., so i will give it another try before my final judgement. It does not seem that noisy to me at all . BUT . When it locks it is a VERY LOUD CLICK which does not sound right .I actually did not want a front load at first because of all the issues you read about and I only got this one because the first top load Maytag 5 CU machine I bought was horrible. This machine is 1000 times better. If it cleans my comforter right next time I would give it 5 Stars. I am dissapointed that because I bought my first one in MAY during Maytag month and got this one in Jul I missed out on all those great discounts which doesnt seem fair as it was a bad machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans well, extremely quiet When I first went shopping for a replacement washer I told my husband no front loaders, I want a large capacity top loader like I have. Then I found out that the so called large capacity washers have no agitator which I wasn't happy to see. Looking at mixed reviews about them I reluctently looked at front loaders and liked the looks and price of this one and it was a very large capacity. I took delivery 2 weeks ago and couldn't be happier. It cleans better than my previous washer, which I didn't think was possible. I was concerned about the noise level because I read reviews on it being a noisy washer. In fact, it is so quiet that I don't hear it at all and my washer is on the first floor, main level of the house. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. My only issue is that every time I do a load of laundry I have to look at the book to figure out which setting is the best. A couple f the settings take twice as long to complete than my old washer but I'm sure I will get use to it all. Also like the fact that it's made in the USA [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
