Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible machine, repairable after two years Two years in and the bearings began leaking water into the transmission. Washing machine started spraying grease and water onto the floor when used. Three repair companies quote $700+ for repairs. Too bad what whirlpool did to the used-to-be-reliable Maytag. I'd recommend avoiding at all costs. A $1100 washing machine should last more than two years before having a catastrophic fault. January 24, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bearing Fialure Bought this washer in Nov 2012. Discontinued version MVWB850YG. Started using in Feb 2013 once new house was finished. Bearings failed after less than 2 years use. Noticed when a circular splatter of grease/oil formed under the washer. I've read this is a common problem for Whirlpool HE washers. Trusted appliance repair friend stated it's the result of poor design. We also bought several KitchenAid (Whirlpool products) appliances for our kitchen in the new house. Already had repairs for fridge and double oven as well. Stay away from whirlpool. Replaced with GE Low-E old school agitator washer. Much better! January 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great machine and experience! I was looking to replace the worst appliance I've ever purchased: a GE Adora front load washer. That machine was poorly engineered, and GE knew it and did nothing about it. After spending 4 years wringing out by hand everything large than a washcloth, this Maytag is absolutely perfect, and I couldn't be happier with the quality. April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Washer!!! This is a excellent washer in looks and performance. Initially I was hesitant after reading some of the reviews to purchase it. I think some people need to read their manual. I have had this washer for 2 years now and I have only great things to say about it. Definitely buy this model:) January 13, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I have one of these and I hate it.!!! Because of the low water usage you can't even do one set of king size sheets and pillow cases together. They come out a twisted up mess and then even the dryer doesn't get out the wrinkles. I found you can only do very small loads so how does that save water? I don't even want to think about doing a blanket or bedspread! Stains don't come out either. I WANT MY AGITATER BACK! June 17, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointing I've read the instructions and tried several different settings and I'm still disappointed. Its rough on the clothes and not good at cleaning - e.g. leaves particles behind, dingy looking, not as fresh smelling. I was hoping I'd be as happy with it as some of the other reviewers but I had much better performance from my 12 yr old front loader before it died. August 31, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Product did not last long We bought the Maytag Bravo XL washer and dryers just over four years. The washer did an okay job cleaning clothes, the sheets do come out twisted as other reviews mention and it would get out of balance a lot. We found out today we have about $850 in repairs and given this amount we are going to buy another washer. We will not be buying another Maytag because I am very frustrated this washer did not last longer. August 6, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by worst product ever I bought this Maytag washer because it was suppose to be" top of the line". It will become unbalanced very easily, has way too many features, takes too long to wash (using more electricity). I wasted money on this machine, over $1000.00. Only good thing about it is the color, granite. Wish I had my old machine back!!!!!!! June 25, 2014
