This is definitely a great washer, we recently purchased a home and there were no appliances, we checked out different types, high efficiency top loads, front loads, and standard washers like this one. I'm very pleased with our decision. Everything comes out clean and fresh.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eric People are reviewing the wrong washer here, giving this one a bad name
I own THIS washer, it has a center agitator, I've read a lot of reviews complaining about the "high efficiency" washer, without a center agitator, come on people, Maytag Centennial makes two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT washers, this one which is a FANTASTIC washer, and the piece of garbage "high efficiency" model. So before you keep someone from buying a good product with your poor reviews, be sure you're reviewing the correct product. I own THIS model, and I love it!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by homeownerJoe Never again. If you open the lid the cycle starts from the beginning. No choice to Just spin.
I bought this washer thinking Maytag was reliable -think again. Within 1 month the pump gave out. It took 1 month to have someone under warranty to replace it. Then the solenoid gave out another two weeks without a brand new washer. Then the start/ stop function stopped : another 3 weeks without a washer. Worse than that there is no choice to JUST spin your clothes. You CAN'T open the lid and add anything once the water fill cycle is complete. I will never buy a washer with "automatic control". Its like driving a car which won't allow you to roll down the windows nor stop between destinations. Maytag should take it back to the drawing board.

I would never buy another Maytag again because this washer has broken twice in less then a year. I had one for 15 years when the belt broke and rather then replace it I bought a new one and I'm so disappointed with it. My daughter and brother are having the same issue with them continuing to break down because of the digital features. It seems everyone I speak to about the new washers and dryers are having the same problems. Maytag needs to go back to the old way of making machines because I'm ready to start using a laundry mat to wash my clothes. I would warn you to stay away from the digital and lid lock machines, they are horrible.

I like it. It has simple controls, it isn't too noisy and it was easy to install. (I forgot to check the free installation request box, because I already had new hoses to use.) Although I bought it for the smaller tub size, it still seems huge. It has not made a noticeable change in my power bill.
I do recommend reading the instructions FIRST before you attempt to use it. The controls are so simple, I can understand people who do not do that. It is good to know that the lid LOCKS once the water stops filling and it is important to know that a light goes on when the load is DONE. (As with all washers there is a pause between cycles. Those eager to finish a load might mistake a pause for the end.)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JohnW Complete and utter garbage
We've owned this washer for 18 months and have had to call service twice. The first time it was covered under warranty. The washer started to sense the load, then just stopped. They replaced the circuit board. This time we're out of warranty. The washer stops at the spin cycle. Sometimes it spins, sometimes it doesn't. Today, it sounded like the motor was trying to spin it, but the drum wasn't moving. Even when it spins, the clothes come out sopping wet. I'm better off buying a new washer--which WILL NOT be a Maytag--than continuing to pay for repairs. STAY AWAY!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by krisa35 Great washer for a great price
I am thrilled with our new Maytag extra-large capacity top loading washer. I have heard time and again about how terrible the new, fancy, overpriced front loaders are and I am going to say with honesty I don't envy anyone with one of those front loaders. My new top loader works like a champ. We have 2 kids, 3 dogs and laundry is a daily chore. The washer has great simple to use dial controls and I think it does an excellent job with our big items too. It did get off balance with the dog bed but that was my fault for not evening out the load. Also it is made in America which also makes me feel good. Many happy washing days ahead for us!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by d in ca Quietly cleans clothes, price was great
Like everything about washer but would like to find a way around the locking feature. We have well water here that sometimes throws iron into a load. So for my nicer clothes I like to take them out between the wash and rinse cycle, and then put them back in again once the rinse cycle has filled. Haven't quite figured out how to do that with this washer that's locked shut most of the time...Other than that - it's quiet, spins the clothes out really well so that everything dries faster than with my old washer, and the clothes seem very clean.
