- 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.
- 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.
- $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

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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brittany 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Morningstar 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!

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BerkeleyHippie 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.
