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?

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.

I use Tide He detergent and Downy fabric softener. Clothes come out of the washer fresh and clean with no residue. Also, this machine does not twist clothes. My old top loader with an agitator used to twist my long sleeve shirts and jeans, making wrinkles that much harder to remove later. The Maytag is very gentle with clothes and provides you with a variety of options for minimizing wrinkles. The "Bedding" cycle is especially designed to minimize wrinkles by not twisting your sheets. You also have the option to use a reduced speed spin cycle. To answer your last question, I'm not aware of any lint trap. I can tell you that I have a 70 Golden Lab that sheds continuously, and this machine does a great job of removing dog hair from our clothes. Read Less

jerseygirl,
Thank you for viewing this Maytag Maxima XL front load washer. After answering your questions, I am going to also suggest that you read the use and care guide for this washer if you still have concerns. There is a section on cycles and also a troubleshooting section that addresses the questions that you have in detail. This use and care guide can be found on the product page by clicking on the More Info tab, then clicking on the Use and Care Guide hyperlink.
If you follow the manufacturers suggestions and guidelines for detergent amount and you select the correct cycle for the type of clothing that you are washing, then residue and twisted/wrinkled clothing is going to be minimized or not happen at all. Front load washer do wash and operate differently than a traditional top load washer with an agitator. There is a learning curve if you have never used this style of washer before. The results are great and the water/energy savings is tremendous when comparing to older washers, however, you do things correctly in order to get optimal results.
As far as lint collection, most if not all washers today have a self cleaning lint trap. There is not a basket or area where lint is collected and then must be emptied after each washer. Before the cycle ends, there is a self flushing that occurs that gets rid of any lint build up. Also, with a front load washer, there is no agitator, so lint is minimized as the clothing is not subjected to being "beat up" and the fibers of the clothing breaking down in the wash.
I hope that this information is helpful. This Maytag Maxima XL Front Load Washer does a great job cleaning and will provide optimal results. It is also extremely efficient and you should have a noticeable savings in water and energy depending on how many loads you are washing. Thank you for viewing this Maytag home appliance. Read Less

Answer: 
April,
That is correct. The MHW8000AW and the MHW8000AG are the same appliance. The only difference is the color. The last letter in the model refers to the color. The "W" refers to White and the "G" refers to Granite. This color designation also matches the coordinating washer. I have listed the models of the matching dryers below for you to review.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 188 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beauty and Brains too We are very satisfied with our XL washer and dryer - in granite. We just bought a new house. We moved from a house we renovated with a main level master including a w/d in a closet in the master. Our new house had the laundry in the kitchen - We wanted our w/d on the same level as the bedrooms so we took out a walk-in closet and converted it to a laundry room. We stacked the units with cabinets on both sides. I was somewhat concerned about the spin cycles - but this machine is amazingly quiet and there is almost no vibration when it spins at the highest speed. Our laundry room backs up to the wall where our bed is - you cannot hear anything when there are clothes in the washer or the dryer. We are very pleased - We just installed the pair last week so I have only washed about 5 or 6 loads. But I wash everyday. The clothes come out very clean - love the steam boost and the allergy setting. September 17, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Had Several Issues GOOD: - The clothes come out very clean; even the dog and cat blankets which usually are full of hair. Very energy efficient. Many cycles to choose from. Elegant looking. OK: - Some of my clothes has little holes in it, even though I wash all clothes on delicate cycle exclusively, use little, earth friendly detergent that was recommended for this machine, and use a low spin cycle. I even wash more delicate fabrics in laundry bags. So not sure if this is the clothing issue or machine issue. - Even though I use delicate cycle with cold water, the clothes feels warm after a spin cycle. So it seems that the machine still uses a warm water. Since it's a from loader, I can't open the door once the water fills up to check its temperature. But even the glass door feels a bit warm on a delicate, cold water cycle. BAD: - $1400 for a washer is a lot of money in my opinion, but we spent it because this washer got excellent reviews on Consumer Report website. 22 months later, the drum in the machine is loose: at spinning cycle it bangs against the machine's walls and it's trajectory is oval rather than circular like in the past. Since the 1 year warranty is expired, Maytag wants $350 for someone co come out to fix it. That's ridiculous! BTW, we also had issues with the same model's dryer. A belt broke and had to be replaced, but thankfully that happened only 2 months after purchase and was still under a warranty. NOT impressive for this kind of money February 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good Everything is great so far! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] June 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beyond Great Awesome. Quiet, roomy great extraction. Love the wash and dry feature. October 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and quiet This machine gets our clothes noticeably cleaner than our old top loader. I can use the the "Normal" cycle for whites and it works great. Drying time is cut in half because clothes come out of the wash dryer (on high spin speed). Love the "Fresh and Hold" feature. If I need to run an errand while doing laundry, I can do so without coming home to clothes that have a mildew smell. Also, the multi-load detergent dispenser is great. Too bad they don't make a multi-load fabric softener dispenser as well. November 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very satisfied with product Great selection of settings to adjust for different fabrics/items - linens, blouses/slacks, kids' clothes, amount of soil. Aesthetically pleasing. Handy drawer in the pedestal (sold separately). Love the pedestal - no more bending down to access the machine. Buttons lock so the 3 year old can't play with them. Overall very satisfied with this product! June 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This Machine was a pleasant surprise! I love my new Washer! Not only is it quiet, gorgeous and has more features than any one home needs, it performs beautifully. My very favorite feature is the pre-loading soap container. Not only do I not have to worry about loading soap, but for the first time I am using the appropriate amount of soap and my clothes are just as clean but so much fresher! Towels no longer have that dingy smell. Also, I washed my comforter at home for the first time ever! It fit! The capacity is impressive. Thank you for making such a superior product! My husband built a platform above my machines in the same shade of grey and honestly they look super classy! November 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So great looking with the new gray color. I just replaced my old Maytag washer and dryer after 20 years and it was the first front loader made. I decided after having one last so long that I stayed with Maytag. I hope this matching set will last me as long, the features are much newer. July 21, 2015
