Customer Questions & Answers

What is the "clean washer" feature?

I've been comparing Maytag washers and this model has a "clean Washer" feature. What exactly is that and how does it work? Thanks.
Asked by: Anniem
You buy these little packs that look like dishwasher soap and they clean your washer. I do not feel it is necessary as frequently because after each load, I leave the lid open and keep it aired out. I use it though because like every mechanical thing you should have a cleaner -think sink disposal, dishwasher, coffee pot, oil change (too far?) and even your shower head. All those things get gunky so why not use it? Just my 2 cents.

small loads

Does this machine have the ability to do small loads? I have a high efficiency top loader now but it does not do small loads.
Asked by: helicopter
I'm pretty sure it doesn't have a small load but I do believe it only uses as much water as the load dictates. The time of the load is the same but water needed is adjusted. I thought I read that somewhere. I hope that helps.

Does this machine self balance?

I notice this machine has a self balance detector? Does it self balance or do I have to do it? If so, how?
Asked by: KAMcMillion
The machine screen will have a UL appear to show the load is not level. In my experience it will beep a few times then if you don't show up it will add water and the agitator and tub will try to jiggle it in place -not sure if this ever works because I'm not standing there watching it all the time. When I noticed the UL, I tried to rearrange then hit start and if that didn't work after a few tries I would hit cancel load where it then drains. I would run the rinse cycle if I notice suds or rinse cycle to only spin. I hope that made sense.

does this machine have a permanent press cycle?

In picture of dials I do not see a permanent press cycle. What settings would I use to wash permanent press clothes?
Asked by: jayjay
No permanent press. I think I would use the delicate.

Bravos XL 4.8 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1444.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I've had the Bravos for about a month now, and am very pleased with the price and performance. I had a front load washer before and didn't like the way it was constantly getting mildewed. The Bravos also has a much larger capacity in the same footprint so fewer loads to wash means less time spent washing on the weekends. It's very easy to use - intuitive, and does a good job cleaning. One item I have to work out is the spin dry speed - it seems to twist up my clothes and wrinkle them, but I believe I can adjust this over time to minimize wrinkles and still get most of the water out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Top Loader! I love the size of the washer, cleanliness of the clothes and the fact that there is a warning light that lets you know the washer itself need to be cleaned! I bought a "set" the only thing I noticed after the fact was that my dryer seemed to have EVERYTHING and the washer was a step down. I didn't realize that there was another model that had an activewear and Jeans cycle. Too late now BUT still very pleased with my purchase, they were on sale, we received an additional 10% off + a $100 rebate that we got also! I have never owned a Maytag, Laundry is my favorite chore I am just hoping they live up to their reputation!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from large capacity Two features I don't like. 1. The tub is very large and deep so you can fit a lot of clothes and that's great. But it's difficult for a short woman to reach the bottom of the tub to remove the clothes. 2. The water level is automatically determined by the machine so it can save water. I can't override the water level for more water if I want clothes to soak.
Date published: 2014-04-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, but... I love Maytag, and I love this washer; however I have been slightly disappointed how easily it gets "off-balance" with heavier loads. For instance, I choose the "sheets" setting when washing sheets, but it will inevitably get off balance, and my sheets are just normal every day sheets. Other than that, I'm happy with my washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new Maytag Wshing machine At first I was sceptic about it because it did not have an agertator.But now I am so happy that I purchased it. Best Washing machine I ever owned. Love It.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product is quiet and efficient Great product for our family, handles the load of our family washing. The downside is that every time you add a garment and open the lid the chime goes off and washer comes on even if you are not going to wash a load yet. With kids this can get annoying every time you/family puts a garment in for the next washing.
Date published: 2014-04-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, it is working good. I love how quiet it operates. I have only had the washer one month. This washer is huge and is so quiet. My only complaint is that it is so efficient in spinning the clothes that they come wrinkled. I've tried to adjust the settings, but things are still a bit wrinkled. Other than that, I love the way it operates.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid design The design of this washer is sold and the controls, although numerous, are well thought out. This machine is much more gentle on our cloths than our front loader and they come out of the spin cycle dryer than before giving our dryer less work. The cleaning cycle is a nice feature especially since our last front loader had an odor problem. The new top loaders have very deep tubs. My wife and I are both tall so this is not an issue when it comes to pulling out damp cloths and the end of the wash cycle. We find that using the high efficiency (low water usage) cycles on some of our children's cloths don't get the body odor out. We are working on figuring out the best wash cycle for this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this washer! I love the fact that my clothes get clean without a huge waste of water and soap and that they spin almost dry. Also that I do not have to try to guess what size load to select and then having to go back and see if the tub filled up enough, this machine does the selecting for you based on what is inside the tub. I also like the very large tub/load capacity. It is great that it has a sanitizing cycle, especially since we have a dog and cat. And quite??? This is the most quiet machine I have ever owned or used. You will not go wrong buying this model. Don't forget to get the matching dry/loader!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from If you buy this washer purchase the 5 year warrenty The washer works great but we have had the electronic board go out twice within 4 years. If the machine is out of warrenty the board cost is $360 + service fee $120 = your buying a new washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent washer We purchased after previous washer broke. I run loads pretty much daily and no issues with clothes getting clean or with noise level of machine!! LOVE the capacity and ease of loading!
Date published: 2014-04-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large capacity I have 5 children so our washer never stops. We have had this washer for 2 months and so far no complaints. Maybe in a year or so we will see how it holds up. We can put lots of clothes in this one though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge and hard working machine! I bought this washer a few months ago and it is SO much better than the original HE machines! I love the see-thru lid, the fact that I can quickly unlock the lid when needed, the use of more water for the bulky cycle so it soaks things a bit more, and the 3 stationary detergent/bleach/softener dispensers that stay clean on their own. I was tired of my old HE machine and almost went back to the old style, but I am thrilled with this machine. I read reviews and learned to not spin things so fast if I don't want wrinkles, but for towels, it really gets the water out. It does not have a 'soak' cycle, but I learned I can just open the lid and make things soak as long as I wish. The capacity is amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultimate test of a large load washer. We have had the washer for 1 week. This washer was purchased for our barn to wash heavy duty water proof horse blankets. Not only are the blankets large they are also covered in sand, sawdust, hair, urine and poop. We made sure to level carefully when we installed and the Washer is handling the weight and bulk of the blankets well. I find that if I wash them on the Bulky load 2 xs to get them clean...but lets face it this is the extreme test of a washer. I set the spin at low. The blankets came out without any tears or missing straps which is important as they cost about $300 each. I removed 1 star becauseI feel my old front washer did a much better job on the leg wraps in just 1 wash. But so far I am very pleased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from damged clothes we have had issues with damaged clothes because the washer uses so little water, and even using the recommended soap hasnt helped much if any at all
Date published: 2015-10-26
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great workhorse.... initially The style and features are really great and appealing. It has handled many loads since buying it. Easily 3-4 full loads per week. It is MUCH quieter than the standard whirlpool we had for several years. This is important because it is located just off of the kitchen. Unfortunately, just this week, we noticed very small dripping during the fill cycles. It is dripping from the front of the machine. I checked all hoses and connections with a dry paper towel and all is OK. I will need to look at it closer this weekend when I have some time. To Be Continued.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer We bought this to replace our old washer which was beginning to have problems about a month ago. We wanted a matched pair as we had to replace our dryer as well. It took a little getting used to rethinking how to load the washer but we did. We have followed the directions and have had good results with our laundry. It is a much quieter machine than our old agitator machine. It definitely uses less water. I like the gentle chimes. The window on top is handy to see what is going on inside. We are still learning how to use but so far I think it s great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge capacity and does an excellent job! I purchased this washer along with the matching dryer after shopping around for several months comparing brands. My entire family is so happy with my purchase. The load capacity is amazing, it fits more than I ever imagined and everything comes out beautifully. Another thing I am amazed with, is how well this washer gets the majority of the water out of the clothes,towels, etc... so drying takes minimal time. The assortment of settings on this is also a huge perk making it so easy to use.
Date published: 2014-11-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washing Machine This is by far the best washer I've owned, or even used. It's packed with great features, and has more options than a top of the line car. It has a different setting for every kind of item you need to wash, and does a great job of using just enough water to get them clean. It's very quiet, even during a rapid spin cycle. After the spin, the clothes are less wet which reduces drying time. I really like the deodorizing cycle that allows you to drop in an "Affresh" tablet and keep the washer smelling good. I expect this American made appliance to last for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from saves on the water bill BIG TIME have had maytag appliances for the last thirty years. decided to stick with maytag and bought the bravos he top load washer. i was a little leary of the new technology but so far its been great. the clothes come out really clean and the spin gets all the excess water out. and it uses much less water than my old agitator washer. aside from the fact that it sounds much different from my old washer i am very pleased with it. did spend the first couple of times using it watching the various cycles. actually kind of interesting. you can never go wrong with a maytag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tub is too deep...I,m 5foot 3 inches tall It gets clothes very clean...Capacity makes it easier to get more done each time...Machines are very nice looking...Controls provide an efficient range of choices. Would not buy again because of the depth of the drum.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not Buy! I bought this washer and dryer set with high hopes I was really let down! We have a Bassett Hound and he has short hair I can not seem to get his hair out of our clothes. If something folded goes into the washer it comes out folded it should not be folded when it comes out of the washer! Anything fleece I have to take to the laundry mat and I typically have to dry things twice These are not what I hoped for! they may be energy efficient but not if you have to wash things 2-3 times and dry them just as many. Stay clear of these!
Date published: 2014-08-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice washer of course it's a Maytag Skeptical at first about how it washes with so little water, but after having it a year I am very happy with the washer. Whites come out super white with not a lot of bleach. Clothes do come out a bit wrinkled but a short toss in the dryer and hang dry and your good. My son is a mechanic and the clothes come out descent. I don't think any washer would get his clothes this clean. Best thing is that I don't use a lot of detergent and the clothes still come out great. I do have to clean it often with Affresh though, only con. But then again I do a lot of laundry and love the capacity. Wash gets done in no time. Loved it so much I just went out to buy the dryer that matches it. I'll rate that as soon as I use it. I give it a 5 star review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Washer is much taller & wide than my last one, so I had to get use to the size in my laundry room. The feature selections are plentiful, its nice to have so many options. I usually use the same ones over & over, but....its nice to have them just in case. I sorta feel I got a "Mercedes" washer with so many options. May be my imagination, but I feel my clothes are getting cleaner. I'm getting used to the "No agitator" & enjoy the very quiet washing action. Very nice. Glad we chose this machine. Thanks Maytag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent washer This washer is by far the best washer we have ever owned. We have gone with some of the most expensive washers in the past and they all came up short on quality, life expectancy and durability. This washer is fabulous. Washer holds a ton of clothes and can even wash my King Size thick comforter very well. We are so happy with this purchase, our only regret was that we didn't buy it sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer! I have had this washer for about one month and I am very pleased with how it cleans my clothes. I had never used a HE washer so I was not sure if I'd be satisfied; however the salesman assured me I could bring it back if I did not like it. I use much less detergent and the time in the dryer is less since everything is spun so well. The machine is quiet. The capacity is so large I can wash sleeping bags or coveralls without any problem. Glad I went with this maytag- I will not need to return it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love We replaced our old GE regular washer and dryer with this and the matching dryer. 13 years makes a HUGE difference in technology and our family size. We constantly have to wash comforters and other assorted laundry. Everything takes so much less time and it can handle so much more volume. The clothing comes out fresh and so clean. Love all of the washing options too!!
Date published: 2015-04-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it I bought this because I can wash a comforter in it. The size is great. I like the different wash options. My clothes do come out more wrinkled after wash cycle and I don't dry most of my shirts. I did notice a dirt stain still on my pants after they had been washed so I am concerned that maybe my clothes aren't getting as clean. I did rewash my pants and the stain was gone. I will put down that I will recommend to a friend but I am undecided at this time.
Date published: 2015-11-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but complicated and not great. Using this washer is not exactly intuitive (especially for the older folks in my family). It cleans clothes well enough, but the regular rinse cycle is not sufficient. I have to use the extra rinse or my clothes are itchy (no, I do not have sensitive skin). I would rather have more control over individual features instead of being locked into certain programs, but the variety of programs is sufficient enough that its not a big deal. It appears to be very well made, but only time will tell.
