Customer Questions & Answers

what does the finish product look like?

Is there any residue left on the clothes after they have finished washing and do they come out twisted or wrinkled? Also does this washer collect lint in the water dispenser or anywhere else?
Asked by: Anonymous
This front loader has done an excellent job. I am very picky about laundry. I've had at least 3 front loaders over the years. The last one was a Kenmore Elite (hard to get parts for) but loved the way it cleaned - also didn't last as long. This washer cleans exceptionally well. The steam feature helps with cleaning and getting clothes clean. I had a King size April Cornell quilt that it did an amazing job on. So far the sheets and quilts don't twist like my last front loader - We took out a walk-in closet in our master and put a Travertine stone floor in with a drain in it - then stacked the units with closets on either side. Here's a photo

Is the only difference between mhw8000aw and mhw8000ag the color? My question concerns the matching washer and dryer.

Asked by: April
There is no difference in color other than graphite and white. All models are either one or the other in color

How do I pry the lint screen loose?

I have a maytag maxima front load dryer. I've been removing and returning the lint screen with ease. When I inadvertently put it in backwards, it obviously just stops going in and that's my cue to flip it around. Never been a problem (I've had the machine for 1 year and a bit now). Yesterday however, I put it in backwards, it stopped on the way down, again, my cue to flip it around, but this time it won't come out. I didn't try to force it in or anything, so I have no idea what happened. Can anyone help?
Asked by: LEMO
If you feel that you can't pull the lint trap out without damaging the dryer, then I would suggest calling The Home Depot/ Whirlpool Corporation Hotline. There number is 877.461.3376, Option 2, Option 1, you will be connected to a service care representative that will be able to troubleshoot with you. Thank you for being a Maytag customer.

Maxima XL 4.3 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer with Steam in Granite, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 194.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Excited about the warranty Maytag has to offer. I love this washer/dryer combo so far. I can fit a LOT of clothes in there. I thought the overnight wash and dry option would be for more clothing (it's really just for one or two items) but this is really helpful if you are in a pinch and need something washed and dried to wear the next day - especially us busy moms! Lots of options on this washer. Really like that you can add the soap once and it's good for 12 loads. Lots of automatic options that take care of the laundry for you. Took me a little time to get accustomed to all the options. It is very easy to accidentally brush against the machine though and change settings. I have mine stacked so my options sometimes get changed when moving my wet clothes up to the dryer. Love the look and feel of the dial and the buttons though. I like the "music" the buttons make too. Although sometimes they are a little loud and I need to turn it off if the kids are sleeping. This washer even tells you when to run the clean cycle, which I like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smitten with my washer! I've had my washer for a few months and im so in love with it! I went from doing 2 loads per day with my old top loader to having to do a load every other day! The capacity on this thing is insane! I didn't think I needed all the options that it offered by low and behold I use them and love that I can customize each and every load. One of the best features is the automatic soap dispenser! Every load comes out clean and smelling fresh! With my family of five, this washer has surpassed my expectations and I could not live without this lifesaver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait and expense I too did my research and decided to spend more on an American made product that I didn't have a chance to view before hand except online (they do have the 600 and 700 model in stores and they are pretty much the same thing). and honestly couldn't be more happy with them. They are beautiful, as far as washing machines go, and quiet as a dream. I do wish they had a small load option as well as a soak cycle and a rinse and spin cycle; but that being said it has everything else I can think of! I bought the set in white with the pedestals so that I wouldn't have to stoop over but really could have done without in hind sight, so if money is a concern that is a way to cut the cost. I have a teenaged, football playing, Boy Scout, and multiple cats and dogs so this set gets a work out on a daily basis. I had considered the Kenmore Elite brand because it too is highly rated by Consumer Reports but we have had nothing but bad luck with every single appliance we have purchased from them, both with the actual appliance and the customer service so I refuse to do business with them and am so glad that we went with Maytag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am surprised at how many things it does and how clean my c This is my third front loader and it cleans my clothes far better than the previous brand. It has lots of options (like extra rinse, child proofing, extra dirty loads, delayed loads and the ability to do a load overnight and not worry about the clothes sitting all night). I would highly recommend it to anyone who has lots of dirty clothes and wants them to be really clean. It's an awesome washer.

Even the area around the washer smells cleaner. It is easy to operate. An item everyone should have

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great washer, not very reliable We replace a 10+ year old Neptune washer. This one has longer cycle times but it washes clothes much better. Over all, we love this. We've had it for 18 months and it stopped working. Fortunately I had bought the $99 4 year Home Depot Extended warranty which I recommend. The "motor control board" (computer that controls the physical drum motor) died. The service tech replaced it under the extended warranty. I've heard similar stories. It's ridiculous that a washer's computer should just magically die after 18 months. Also this has a debris basket that is supposed to catch large object before they jam the drain pump. In order to get to that clean-out, you have to disassemble the entire front of the washer. I don't understand this design. Why should you have to take apart the washer to get to the basket when it's clearly designed in a way that it should be routine to clean out. I'm kind of upset about these things but it's still a great washer. Just be prepared to deal with maintenance. Get the extended protection plan and be prepared to use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great washer but not quiet I have had this washer now for a month, it replaced a top loading Maytag. It washes the clothes well and does get out stains with the steam feature. I also like that I don't have to add detergent every time as the machine portions it out for each wash. The machine is much louder than I expected. The signal beeps are very loud (which you can turn off completely). The machine itself is louder than my top loader was. My only other complaint is that the door is hinged on the left side and can't be changed (which is inconvenient because my dryer is on the left side of the washer so the door is in the way to take clothes out and put into the dryer). I would still recommend this machine for its efficiency and performance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed... I wish you could test drive a washing machine, and dryer before buying...like a car. I had the LG's for 8 years prior to this machine. Had a few complaints, but nothing compared to this piece of junk. My Electrolux at our second home even walks all over this machine. This machine has about 50 less options than the Electrolux does. Don't think about putting s small load in this and expect it to balance on the spin cycle. MOre than once I have opened the door to have water pour out at my feet, and the load sitting in water. Bought a Teal colored rug (3' x 5') no rubber backing...wanted to wash it by itself as not to get teal color on anything else. Would not finish the cycle no matter what I did. I had to add two other rugs to get it done, guess what...I now have three blue rugs. If you lean over the machine, and touch the settings, they change. ON the other hand placing your finger over the power or start button takes 2-3 tries to get it to turn on. After only 5 washes the washer started smelling musty. REading the manual it suggests you leave the door open to prevent this. Great unless you have to walk through.... Thoroughly disappointed....am in negotiations with the store I bought it from to take it back....The dryer is worse!!!
