Hi. The Maytag site says this dispenses detergent. Does it also dispense bleach and fabric softener? If not, how do you use them?

Do you have to drain the water to keep it from getting mold and mildew

hi, My old LG front loader was awful. After the first few washes, everything started to smell like mold . After almost a year, someone told us to drain a little hose in the frnt of the machine after every wash. All the soapy water built up there and it was bad and smelly. Do I have to drain the Maxima washr everytime too? Does it get that mildew smell that front loader seem to get
Asked by: SickofLG
SickofLG, Thank you for taking a look at and considering this Maytag Maxima X Front Load washer. There is not a manual drain on this washer. Part of every cycle is that the washer will flush out the drain and hoses to get rid of any residue. As with any washer or appliance that uses water, there is always a potential for mold/mildew. There are tablets that are sold that will clean the washer and eliminate mold and mildew build up. These tablets are meant to be used every 4-6 weeks. This Maytag Maxima front load washer has had great success and I believe that you will be satisfied with the performance. Thank you again.

how many gallons of water does a normal cycle use

Asked by: redman
Anonymous, This Maytag Maxima will use as little as 14 gallons of water and potentially as many as around 20 depending on load size, soil level, and additional options selected with the cycle. Most customers with a traditional washer that is 10+ years old is using anywhere from 35-45+ gallons of water per load and doing less laundry per load than what this Maytag would handle. This is a significant savings. Thank you for viewing this Maytag Maxima front load washer.

Customer Reviews

Maxima X 4.1 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 207.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The washer that's both economical and easy to use I did my research before purchasing regarding features and benefits, however even when you get the product home, you wonder if all will be as stated ?? Three of these benefits/features are what make me so pleased with my purchase. 1) the reduced amount of detergent. I do a load or more a day, so imagine it taking 2 months to go through a container - blissful! 2) because of the RPM speed, the clothing is so much more spun out leading to less drying time - also blissful and, 3) the economics of this product, less detergent, less water used, means less drying time. This equals less money laid out in the long run on a fine functioning machine. Mission accomplished!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and effecient. Best machine we have owned. This washer does a terrific job. The speed of the spin cycle is so fast that the dryer does not need to operate anywhere near as long as it did for our old washer. Because it uses the HE detergent it costs a lot less in detergent and in water to run. If you are in the next room you can barely hear it when it's running too so it's great if you have a laundry room close to your living area. All in all this is a great machine. I was not glad that our old one decided to quit on us but once it did I am glad we came up with this machine as its replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ product This is the first time I'm using a front load washer in my home so naturally I'm thrilled. There's lots of room to load more laundry, plus the high efficiency means I can use less detergent. The Maytag Maxima X is also nice and quiet. I'm hoping this washer will last for at least a couple of decades so I don't mind paying the price. I would say the only con for this machine is cleaning out the rubber door seal where hair and lint accumulates. You have to pull back the seal to clean all that stuff out. This is just a pet peeve of mine but may not bother others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good appliance super quiet on the spin cycle better than my other front loader can hardly hear it spin only complaint i have is the factory doesnt tighten the screws tight enough on the back of the washer or the pedestal it sits on it squeaks and makes noise. some people say it makes a loud water noise on some reviews but thats just your water pressure coming in you your house. thats not to bad to deal with. after checking the screws some were really loose or not even tight, after they were tightened the washer or pedestal didnt make a noise at all super quiet waher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did have one suggested improvement With so much to really like about this washer, a part of me hates to bring this up but I DO consider it worthwhile. With my last washer, I could choose a warm wash BUT a cold rinse. I do not have this choice with this Maytag. Also, how about a choice of cold wash and a warm rinse. In other words, could we have the option to choose water temps for parts of the process. Thank you for your time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this MAYTAG! Phenominal cleaning & features. This is my fifth washer in life - but my first MAYTAG machine. Oh how I love this washer! I also purchased the matching dryer, as well as pedestals, and could not be happier. The COLD wash cycle is amazing. The clothes come out super clean and smell fresh. The clean time on this cycle is a bit longer than I am used to, but the 5 star clean level makes it worth the time. I also love the "Clean Washer" light up reminder every 30 loads... one less thing I have to remember to do. The other PLUS about this washer feature is the eradication of what I call "front loader stink" that other models acquire over time, that smelly smell they all have, that nobody can get rid of! Well, this washer has solved that issue with its "clean me" reminder. How refreshing (literally!) The delicate cycle is wonderful. I put all items in those little mesh bags, toss them all in at once... and shortly thereafter, all is done at once, nothing is tangled or demolished, and everything is really fresh. The other nicety is that for a delicate cycle, the items are fairly dry spun, so line drying is only a few hours rather than a day. Love the washer cleaning level, panel design, "clean washer", large load size, no smelly smell, well-spun cleaning features. Would have given it 10 stars if I could. Well done MAYTAG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and Performance worthy of the Maytag Heritage I have had Maytag Neptune for the last 15 years and the Maxima surpasses my expectations. The unit is very quiet even at very high speed spin cycle. I highly recommend this model.
Date published: 2013-07-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome washer We had a Maytag Neptune and this new washer is an awesome upgrade. The capacity is wonderful. A king size comforter washes with no problems. The controls are very easy to operate too. The most improved feature comparing the new machine to the old one is the noise reduction.The new machine is SO quiet, we don't hear it running at all. Also, the old machine vibrated our whole house and would rattle the pictures hanging on our walls. The new machine does none of that. It is so quiet and NO vibration at all. I would highly recommend this product and Maytag customer service is wonderful too .
