Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CGMomma Not too shabby for an HE washer
We've had this washer for several months now. I'm very pleased with it's performance in washing our clothes. I was a little disappointed to find I have to run three full wash cycles to get my cloth diapers clean, though - the option of adding a soak and also of choosing higher water levels would be very helpful with this problem; it just takes two full wash cycles (with extra rinse on each one) to remove all of the detergent (and, yes, I do use the recommended amount of HE detergent). But the diapers do come out nice and clean! Our last HE washer also required three washes, but I also had to add water to the last two, and still had occasional "funk!"

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by itswag7 Great style, huge size, and fantastic value
Bought this washer for a new home that my wife and I moved into.... We purchased this and the 880 electric dryer as a package and have been thrilled with both! We specifically did not want a front loader washer/dryer pair and we searched high and low to find something that we liked. Every time we ended up back with Maytag and so we bought during "May is Maytag Month". The washer is quiet and can fit a pretty good size load. The only "complaint" is that some of my wife's delicates have left over detergent on them. I am not sure if it is the washer or just a lack of understanding on how to use the washer on this cycle. Overall, we love the washer!

I bought the same type from 2010 to now 2015 and not sure the washer is working out. Only had it for less than a month and need to call the repair man. My first set I never had to call for repair 5 years out sold with the house.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cleanerup66 I wanted a Direct Drive Model, and this is it!
This washer has more capacity than I need, but the slightly smaller version did not arrive on time to meet my order requirements. Overall, the machine has operated very well, and I am happy with the results. I do find it to be quite a bit noisier than a different top load direct drive brand that I own in another location, and I was disappointed to find that there was no "soak" function that I could easily identify. This is a tall model, so very short people might have difficulty reaching the bottom of the tub. I am 5'7" tall, and have no problem at all. My wash gets clean, and the controls are pretty simple. I prefer top load to front load. It's a good choice!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dunnitagain 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by gigi Recent purchase of Maytag Bravos XL Top Load Washer
Transitioned from a front load to a top load washer and am quite impressed with the amount of clothes I can deposit per load. Still getting used to getting on my tippy toes to get to the bottom of the basin though! Overall, I am very pleased with the performance, control panel selections, and quiet operation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jillybeans Really happy with this machine!
We upgraded when our old machine died and did not originally plan to get this particular machine but we are happy we did. I love how much it can hold and how quiet it is. The only thing I don't love is that when you wash on "normal" you cannot turn the spin speed to low and sometimes the clothes come out more wrinkly than I'd like. Also-it takes quire a while to wash loads-but I think that is normal for these HE machines. Otherwise no complaints!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soccer Mom Gentle but Hard working
We purchased this washer for our second home at the beach and were so impressed, we purchased one for our permanent home. The washer is extremely efficient. It cleans extremely well but is gentle enough to protect your clothing. . We have always had Maytag appliances . We had our last washer for 25 years and only replaced it because of the improvements in energy efficiency.

I bought this three months ago and is very satisfied. There's lots of room for comforters and towels. A top load washer is a very welcomed change to the front load washers. The only thing I don't like about this is that there isn't an option for just "spin".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JCannan Highly recommended
The last time our washer broke down our repair tech mentioned this washer and said maybe the next time it will be time to replace. So when old washer did it again I called repair service to see if they were still recommending the Maytag. They confirmed and emphasized the criteria of getting a 4.5 cf or larger since those washer used a more commercial like drive system and I would have less trouble. Well it is too soon to tell on that part of the washer's performance but I can say we have been very pleased with the cleaning ability, capacity, ease of use and trouble free operation. So now maybe my repair tech will be the loneliest guy in town.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shauna08 This is the way we wash our clothes! The only way! the best
I love this washer! It is SO QUIET! The first time I used it my husband though the people in the other side of the duplex were vacuuming! THAT quiet! It washes a lot of clothes using a small amount of water and the clothes get washed right! they are clean! As a short person (5 ft even) it is easy to reach the bottom but still has lots of room. auto shut off is a nice feature and the different settings are all convenient and nice to have. Some people have trouble with sheets acting like mushrooms, if you read the instructions and load it properly it wont do that. It hasn't done it to me once and I wash our sheets once a week.

I really have been enjoying my new washer. I do a lot of laundry in my home. It does a fantastic job. I had gotten the Dryer first and loved it. So we started investigating washers for a possible set.We read lots and lots of reveiws. We wanted to read the bad reveiws to know why people were unhappy with there washers and go from there, find out the simularitys of their dissatisfaction. We learned a lot and I chose this washer for my home. I love my new washer it does a great job.

I love my new washer! It is so easy to use and the larger capacity means I have to do fewer loads. The machine is quiet, cleans thoroughly, and the clothes don't come out all tangled as they did with my old low water machine. All things considered, I am very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean mama Great Features - AWESOME Washer
My previous washer died...and I knew I had to replace the machine. I researched many different makes and models and finally decided on the Maytag Bravos XL HE Top Load Washer. All I can say is I made the right choice in washers. I read the previous reviews written and had to say there were more POSITIVE reviews than negative reviews. I'm glad I weighed on the side of the POSITIVE reviews...because this machine is AWESOME. Maytag makes a quality product that truly lasts....and the fact that it is MADE IN AMERICA....makes me soo PROUD to be the owner of this washer. GO MAYTAG!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Roman Goodfellow Good washer but
Bought this washer just over a month ago and after 8 uses a "LID" error prevents me from doing the laundry. I have to move the barrel around to get it to clear. I will need to call in for a warranty repair but just haven't had time to tend to it. Kind of disappointed in it. When it works it works well. it's just a major annoyance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by juliebean Best washer yet!
I really love our new Maytag washer. We've had it for about a month and have used several of the cycles. It saves water, in fact we should receive a rebate from our water company. The large capacity helps me even save more water by washing more at once. The spin cycle really works well and the heavier items seem to dry faster because of it. We had purchased a Maytag Bravos dryer about a year ago and have been very happy with it, so after reading reviews on the Maytag Bravos Washer we decided to go with the same brand/model. No complaints here!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie J The sounds a new Washer makes.
We have had the washer over a week now and the results are great.Our last one was over 15 years old and worked with 8 members in our household. This new one is quiet, efficient and the clothes feel softer. The features are nice and easy to use. We had the matching dryer over a year and we wanted to match it with this washer. The only down side was it is discontinued for the new models. My lovely wife and I are extremely satisfied with the Maytag brands.

Took a little time getting use to the way you have to load the laundry into the machine, but the clothes come out clean. Have had the washer since January 2014 and works great. The washer even tells you when its time to run a clean cycle.
Home Depot install vendor did a great job with the delivery and setup.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Sally Disappointed Maytag Washer Owner
I have been a Maytag Washer owner for over 40 years and I thought it was tops. This one has been a disappointment to me. I wanted to take it back. have never had to scrub shirt collars before and my whites come out gray if I don't do a second rinse. It is hard to judge the amount of detergent to use since I do not know how much water it is going to use. Sometimes the clothes are so twisted and wrinkle the dryer can not get them out. Therefore, I have had to iron more.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Problem with Rinse
We've had our new Bravos for about 2 months and are fighting a problem. Our washer is getting a "bath tub" ring towards the bottom of the tub. Followed directions on cleaning monthly, but not enough. Are trying Borax mixed with detergent to try to solve this problem. The white ring does transfer to clothing and is most noticeable on dark colors. We do have water softener, use very little HE detergent. Have selected extra rinse each time since discovering problem. Does not stop problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gingerspet Loving it!
I wanted the front loader but our laundry area wasn't deep enough to accommodate one, so I purchased the top loader. I wanted to be able to wash my comforter without having to go to the laundromat. The salesperson told me people either going to love the top loader. . . or hate it. Turns out, I love it!!! A negative is that I'm 5'1" tall so I have to reach deep inside the machine to retrieve the laundry. It's deep. My husband feels compelled to hold on to my feet so that he can pull me out if I fall in. . . LOL. Truthfully, I've not washed my comforter yet. It'll probably be fine. The washing machine does a fantastic job!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alby65 Superb Upgrade
For most of my adult life, I have bounced between laundromats, frugal washing machines and onerous repair bills. The Maytag BRAVO XL He washing machine is, quite literally, the culmination of a lifetime's worth of dirty laundry and an ongoing ordeal with cleaning machines wholly inadequate to the task. This machine has every feature and setting that any degree of laundry needs and it is a genuine pleasure to use. The added bonus of the steadfast solid sterling reputation associated with the MAYTAG brand name is an added bonus that moves this beyond the run of the mill appliance purchase to the level of, quite literally, the last washing machine I will EVER want or need.
