How do I pry the lint screen loose?

This question is from Maxima XL 4.3 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer with Steam in White, ENERGY STAR-DISCONTINUED

March 23, 2015
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?

In good ole days you had choices of how long a wash cycle would last. Seems these days they run for up to 90 minutes. Which is just too long.

Answer: 
Rhonda,
The wash cycles are that long on this washer. Some are as short as 30-35 mins and others can be as long as 2hrs if using all options for the cycle. As you select each cycle and any option you add, the estimated wash time will display. Thank you for viewing this Maytag home appliance.

You shouldn't have an issue with mold on the gasket. There are several steps you can take to minimize or eliminate any potential for mold. There are tablets that are suggested to use every so often that keep mold from building up in washers. Also, after each wash making sure that there isn't any standing water in the gasket helps. Leaving the door cracked open after a wash to allow any residual water to dry before closing the door is a great best practice also. You can also review the Use and Care Guide to learn more.
This Maytag Maxima XL does a great job washing and provides terrific results. I believe you will be happy for years to come with this Maytag home appliance. Thank you for the opportunity to answer your question. Read Less

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 194 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 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by large washing machine works fine--no problems at all it works--don't know what else to say: arrived as described, installed by home depot in 10 seconds has worked fine since really loved the delivery and installation--much too soon to see if it is durable May 13, 2014
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 EXCELLENT MAYTAG WASHER AND DRYER... THIS SET IS BEAUTIFUL, AND STYLISH ! I WOULD RECOMMEND THE WASHER AND DRYER AS I HAVE NEVER IN 40 YEARS HAD SUCH CLEAN CLOTHES! IF SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT I WOULD HAVE THE CLEANEST CLOTHES EVER I WOULD NOT HAVE BELIEVED THEM. JUST LOOKING AT THEM IS PROOF ENOUGH THAT WHATEVER MACHINES I HAVE USED IN THE LAST 40 YEARS COULD NEVER COMPARE TO THE QUALITY OF CLEAN I WITNESS EVERY DAY IN MY CLOTHES. I ESPECIALLY LOVE THE ALLERGEN, AND SANITIZE FEATURES AS I HAVE 3 DOGS AND DOG FUR GETS ON MY CLOTHES AND BEDDING AND WHEN I GET MY CLOTHES OUT OF THE WASHER I DON'T HAVE TO BECONCERED ABOUT DOG FUR, DIRT OR GRIME LEFT ON CLOTHES AND IT HAS A SANITIZE AND ALLERGEN FEATURE! ONE OF THE BEST FEATURES OF THE WASHER IS THAT IT HAS EXTRA HOT WATER AS THE WASHER HAS IT'S OWN HEATING ELEMENT IN IT AS MY HOT WATER IS NOT HOT ENOUGH FROM THE TAP. EVERYONE KNOW TO REALLY GET STAINS OUT YOU NEED REALLY HOT WATER FOR CERTAIN FABRICS AND STAINS! MY WHITE SOCKS HAVE NEVER BEEN WHITER WITHOUT BLEACH! THAT'S RIGHT! WITHOUT BLEACH! WITH BLEACH..EVEN WHITER! AS FOR THE MATCHING DRYER AND THE PEDESTALS I PURCHASED...THE DRYER HAS THE FEATURE OF REDUCE STATIC...WHICH I LOVE...AS THE STATIC IS REMOVED WHICH MAKES IT LESS LIKELY FOR DOG FUR/HAIR TO BECOME ATTRACTED TO YOUR CLOTHES AND YOUR CLOTHES ARE VIRTUALLY WRINKLE FREE WHEN YOU USE THE WRINKLE PREVENT FEATURE WITH OR WITHOUT STEAM. I USE THE WRINKLE PREVENT WITH STEAM TO GET WRINKLES OUT OF SWEATERS AND OTHER CLOTHING THAT HAVE CREASES IN THEM FROM BEING STORED IN THE DRESSER DRAWER. THE CLOTHING LOOKS LIKE THEY CAME FRESH FROM THE DRY CLEANERS! BEST PURCHASE I MADE AND BECAUSE IT HAS ALOT OF ELECTRONICS I DID PURCHASE THE EXTENDED WARRANTY FOR PEACE OF MIND! May 23, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Never Buy Maytag I purchased a Maytag appliance three years ago with an extended warranty plan. The front load washer is tearing and ripping my clothing. I called Maytag to see if any help would be given. They said they would not do anything. I am out of luck with all of my ruined clothing. I continued to wash as I was hoping it was not the wash machine and it is not exactly cost effective to purchase another machine at $1000. Besides that, I have an active family of five that needs clothing washed. I made sure not to wash zippers with clothing that tends to snag or rip and I did smaller loads to be extra careful. I will not purchase another Maytag appliance. By the way, I had purchased a dishwasher from them several years before this incident and I should have learned my lesson as I had to return it because it did not work either. I am done with Maytag. I did purchase a Home Depot Extended Warranty and a very helpful Home Depot Customer Service Manager at Home Depot Headquarters named Debbie was very considerate to help me through the process of having a repair man scheduled through the warranty company. I hope to have it repaired, but I will look to purchase from a company that hopefully has manufactured a machine that will last longer than three years. January 3, 2014
