Questions & Answers

Has Maytag made improvements regarding the bearings and seals.

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.
Asked by: Mike
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.

Bravos XL 4.8 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer with Steam in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1648.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love the size. It's so much different than other washers. Having looked at other washing machines what has impressed us most was the size of this unit. Not the width but the height. We think by making it taller it has also increased the capacity but it just looks so cool and nice and we love the glass top and the new color. Also the steam is great for sanitizing our sheets. Another cool thing was we added a steam dryer and to get the water to the dryer they just have a hose from the washer instead of having to add the water yourself in the top like all the other manufacturers. Great thinking but what a nice convenience. No messing with adding water all the time. Good job guys, very impressive units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this machine! I purchased this machine to replace a Maytag that was about 15 years old. Although I liked the older machine, all the new improvements are so incredible I can't even compare the old machine to the new. I love how it adjusts the water level to match the load. I love how little water it uses. I love how my clothing ( especially the sheets) don't get tangled up in a long rope. I love how large the washer it ( I washed a huge comforter with no crowding. I love how it never gets off balance, my older Maytag occasionally "walked" across the utility room. Finally, I love how clean my clothes get with so little detergent! I wish I would have gotten a new machine earlier.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dark clothes covered in dirt after washing! After one month of ownership, I'm so fed up and disappointed with this machine! I did lots of research and thought it was going to be an amazing machine to replace our fabulous 29 year-old Maytag that finally died. Initially, it seemed to work okay with light-colored clothing, but when it came to navy work pants and other dark clothes, it is a total loser! I washed them 2 times and used extra rinse cycles, but they still came out covered with loose dirt that was redeposited all over them during the spin cycle. I had to brush the dirt off and wipe the pants down with a clean damp towel to remove the deposits. The towel was filthy afterwards! How can they say that this machine is good? I even cleaned the machine with bleach as recommended for each month, but that made no difference in the performance. There just simply isn't enough water going into each wash to carry away the dirt. And there's no filter for the dirt either. Also, the spin cycle may remove most all the water, but the clothes are all wrinkled afterwards! I have to set the spin cycle to low just to keep the wrinkles down and then I have to fluff the clothes in a hot dryer for 5 minutes before hanging them or else I'd have to iron everything. (Yes, we prefer to hang our laundry to save on energy). I want my money back and a regular old fashioned washer again that actually cleans the clothes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great appearane I like the fact I can see what is going on inside, for example an unbalanced load. I like the options that are on the machine and the large capacity

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clothes are definitely cleaner! I got the new washer in November. I love the glass lid! Took a while to get used to "no agitator"! It has a lot of options for water temperature, level of cleaning needed, and water conservation - as well as dispensers for adding things at right cycle. I have not seen any change to my water bill - which was advertised - but I have seen cleaner clothes. I have recently had problems with the oxiclean dispenser holding water - but have not called service to check it - and if I add that cycle it drains (uses more water). I also got the dryer to go with it - that is a huge diference. So glad I got it too....dozens of setting/dampness options - wonderful!
