I have a Bravos X model MVWX700XL1 and the bearings were roaring before it was 3 years old and now leaking and causing multiple problems. I wish I paid for the warranty. I'm thinking about buying the new one to somewhat match our dryer but I'm afraid of it not lasting.

Answer: 
Mine is only two years old and it sounds like a jet taking off on the final spin. It has gotten progressively louder over the last month and I expect it to start leaking soon if I don't replace the bearing and seal. I would expect the 10 year parts warranty to cover the parts, but I expect there will be a reason they won't supply the parts.

I had a front loader HE before this and the bearings/seal went out twice in a short time. I was hoping the top loader would be different. I thought Maytags were supposed to be reliable. Boy was I wrong. Read Less

Answer: 
I'm with Mike here, steer clear!! The problem mentioned having to replace the outer tub is a common and expensive, $200 part + 3 hours labor, issue. My Bravos XL is less than 2 years old and sounds like a freight train while producing a leak. Search for the issue online and you will not be surprised to see 500+ complaints.

Answer: 
I bought my Maytag washer/dryer about a month ago and I am still enjoying and getting use to having the set in my house. So far it has been working well for me. I bought the extended warranty, so hopefully I'll be ok. I bought the set because my bedding is king size I had the dub, it was ok but had a very hard time getting the king size stuff in and out. It wasn't Maytag, another brand.

Proper usage of Oxi Cleaners

The owner's manual mentions using Oxi cleaners in the bleach dispenser, but also says it can't dissolve powdered bleach. Can you only use liquid Oxi cleaners in the bleach dispenser? If so, do you put the powdered Oxi cleaners directly in the tub?

Answer (1)

December 18, 2014
Answer: 
Hi Eaglejim,
The powder Oxi cleaner does not always completely dissolve when placed in the dispenser and as a result it 's cleaning action can be compromised.
That is why Maytag recommends using only liquid detergents and additives in the dispensers only.
Mike

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1064 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 Broken beyond repair at 4 years Completely broken in less than 4 years. Started giving error codes and would take hours to finally get it to complete a load. Now I am struggling to find a close match in color to replace washer only and it is a weird color. Darker than others. Will never again buy a maytag or whirlpool. December 26, 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 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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this washer I was really impressed that this washer got out a blood stain (small nosebleed on a white sheet) that I had let sit for 5 days. No way would my old washer have done that. What I love most about this washer is its HUGE capacity, technically just 75% more, but it seems more like 3x more. With my old machine, I had to do 3 loads a week, and kinda sorta overstuffed the loads, which means the whites never got that white. Now I do just 2, neither load even full capacity, and my whites are definitely whiter. I also love the features I've tried (eco cold, delayed start), probably haven't used even half the features available. Cons: 1) It is pricey. You can see for yourself how much more it is than most Maytags. 2) It can get noisy. It seems to be twice noisy as my old machine. 3) It is large. While it's not much wider than my old machine, it's about 4" taller and 4" deeper. If your W&D space is limited, make sure to measure carefully to see if it will fit. All said, I love this washer. No buyer's regret here. I'd definitely buy the same washer again. December 11, 2013
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
