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.

John,
This Maytag Bravos XL Top Load washer is not stackable, you can not put a dryer on top of it. The only style of washer and dryer that you can stack and the dryer always is on top is a front load washer and dryer. Maytag makes a line of front load washers and dryers call the Maxima Series. If you type Maytag Maxima into the search bar it will return the front load washers and dryers. Thank you for Read More

Hello,

I make my own laundry detergent, which is powdered. Do any Maytag washing machines allow powered laundry detergent? All I can find is use of HE detergent only.

Thanks.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1076 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 I made the right choice! I purchased this washer about 2 months ago and know that I definitely made the right choice! I was going back and forth between a washer with an agitator ( like that one I have had for 25 years) and one without one, supposedly more energy efficient and use of less later. I read so many reviews, was getting confused, but finally decided to go with one without the agitator. It works great! The washer senses the amount of laundry and the right amount of water is poured into the washer. All of the clothes come out really clean. I have looked in and the water level is just at the top of the clothes, but it cleans just fine! AND, it is quiet. Love it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] August 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible I hate this thing. It won't clean clothes. It leaves the clothes dirtier than when they went in. They get covered in white spots and wrinkles. I wish I would have gotten a front load washer as I would love to just one day pull clean clothes of a washer that took a 1:30 mins to "clean" them. Even on 1 sheet this washer can't even get the top of it under water. I've taken out shirts, socks, ect that weren't even wet and this washer actually leaves clothes wetter than my old washer. I hate this machine and how much money I wasted on it. If only I could trade this sad excuse for a washer for a front loader. August 6, 2016
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice, but....... Soap pods do not always dissolve properly, have had to rewash several loads. small loads seem to be the worst or those with tightly woven fabric, i.e. mens work coveralls I also bought the matching dryer, and would like to know how much you're paying the genius that put the lint collector on top of the dryer. Every time you remove and insert back in, the dryer has to be cleaned on top. Have not used the steam option as yet, only had the set for a month. As to whether I would recommend, probably, but they would also be told the unsatisfactory issues I have. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 30, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Residue! Not too thrilled with the residue left on my dark clothes. I sort, set it at more soiled, even though the clothes aren't all that dirty, use Tide HE detergent, and tone down the spin. I'm wondering how well the clothes are getting clean. I want my 20 year old Mayrah back! We'd still have it if it wasn't starting to need repairs every few months! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] August 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great washer I like the large size of the washer. Never have to worrie about overloading it. Nice size capacity so you can wash large comforters without fear of overloading the machine In fact when i add my pile of clothes to the barrel I am always amazed at the amount of room there is inside. The machine makes some strange sounds but all of this is explained in the instruction manual so you know what to expect. It is quiet and easy to use. Seems to work very well and spins clothes so most are practically dry when you pull them out of the drum so they dry fast and they are neatly arranged when you open the lid instead of in a tangled pile. This machine levels the load for you at the start of the cycle to eliminate unbalanced loads. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 22, 2016
