Can the washer fit a king size comforter?

Asked by: RMJM
jmjm This washer would be able to fit many king sized comforters. There are many differentiations in what would qualify as a king sized comforter as far as size, thickness, material, etc. But for the most part this washer would would be able to handle this large of a wash load.

new washer and dryer on existing pedestal

I have a ten year old set of 5500 series maytag washer and dryer on a single pedestal. Will a new 6000 series washer and dryer set on this single pedestal?
Asked by: whip
whip The new front load washers and dryers would not set on that particular pedestal. Those pedestals were built specifically for that series. You would need to purchase new pedestals. Thank you for viewing this Maytag Maxima XL front load washer.

Does this washer play music when you are on sanitize and you move it to like allergen?

I thought when i turned the knob to different settings it played music but now it isn't. Is there something wrong with my washer?
Asked by: Anonymous
Missy, There are "tones" that are heard when you select the wash cycles. It is possible that you inadvertently turned these sounds off. I have pasted below how to turn these tones on and off. This information is available in the Use and Care Manual that you should have gotten with your washer. Also, it is available on the product page under the Info & Guides. Thank you for being a Maytag customer and we appreciate your business. Cycle Signal Use this option to turn on or off the signal that sounds at end of cycle. To turn off the tones that sound when a setting is touched: Touch and hold CYCLE SIGNAL for about 3 seconds. Repeat to turn them on.

Where is the filter located on this machine and how easy is it to clean?

Asked by: Marie
Anonymous, There isn't a filter on this front load washer as it isn't needed. The pump is designed to flush out the washer after each load and there are filters in place within the tub to not allow small items to pass through. Unlike other brands where you have to clean the filter on a regular basis, with Maytag it isn't a concern. Thank you for viewing this Maytag Maxima XL Front Load Washer.

Can the door be switched to a right swing on the Model # MHW6000AW?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi HLH, unfortunately washers have a fixed left door swing. Usually you then either move the dryer to the other side or you stack the washer and dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handles everything! We've had this for a couple of years now and are still impressed with its ability to wash large loads capably and gently when needed most of the time overnight to be ready first thing in the morning. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke 6 Months Past Warranty - $650 Repair...! I generally like this washer and thought that the Maytag brand meant high quality and reliability (remember the "Maytag Repairman"...?). In fact, we paid a bit extra for a Maytag, thinking that we were paying for extra quality and reliability. The machine stopped working after 18 months of light use - it's only my wife and I at home - and it turned out to be some sort of board that burned out. The warranty was only 12 months on this part, so we were 6 months past the warranty period. The new board will cost $450 to buy and $200 to install. The repairman can't find a new board - it's been 3 weeks already - because he says the model is too new and nobody is stocking parts. I contacted Maytag, and they basically told me that I'm on my own, for both the cost and repair. In the meantime, we're stuck without a washing machine for about a month - or more... - and a repair cost that's more than half the original purchase price after only 18 months of light service... I would not recommend this machine, or the Maytag brand, to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic but... they're HUGE!!!! I bought the pair from the web site, sight unseen. We needed a washer and dryer, these had the very best reviews, but could not find them in a store anywhere, so I took a chance. I was quite taken back when they arrived. I was used to just my Maytag Neptunes, just normal sized washer and drier, the Maxima is HUGE. Huge case, huge capacity almost commercial sized. As you can see from the picture, the cabinet is 36 " high and the washer comes up another two inches and sticks out in front of the cabinet 9". I would recommend getting the pedestals as they are pretty low. We did not and I regret it. For just the two of us it's a bit of over kill, but if I had a large family I'd be in love.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Maxima dont buy Bought n Dec 26,2013 from Home Depot the washer was delivered on Jan 6/2014 and stopped working on April 11th2014. I have been without a washing machine since then. First Maytag repair man stated it was the lock after reading the manual for half an hour. Stated that the lock was loose so tightened and stated it was fixed and we would be fine should have no more problems. That night put a load in and guess what still did not work. So called again next morning and requested a new repair man as this first one obviously did not no what he was doing as they will NOT give me a new machine even thought I spent a $1000.00 on a machine that lasted a whole 98 days. .At present they have ordered a part and waiting for delivery. So I have phoned Maytag numerous times talked to a very rude gentleman and been told that I could not speak to a supervisor. Must note the females at Maytag were very sympathetic but could not do anything for me. Also I am now out so far $50.00 in money to use the Laundry mat let alone the time involved taking time off work to have the machine serviced

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Had this for a year now and have been happy I know these reviews are mostly from people who have bought these a month ago, so I figure I would post after a year. This washer has been great, takes big loads, cleans well. A few small problems. Clothes will smell almost within 4 hours if you do not run the keep fresh option. The rubber grommet for the drum will fill up with dog hair or tiny socks. You need to clean this thing regularly. Otherwise no major problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product gets my laundry clean! I wash a lot of dog beds and horse laundry as well as human laundry and I have finally found a machine that gets it all clean! I love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I stuck with Maytag front loader Never had problems with my old Maytag front loader, even after years of use, when it finally did go out, I bought the Maytag Maxima XL 4.3 cu. ft. Great machine, runs nice and quiet, has similar features like the old one, like the sanitary cycle. The new features like the steam and fresh spin options are very useful. I paid a little more than some other brands with similar features, but given the good luck I had with the last Maytag I think it will be worth it in the long run.
