Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 221 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great features, flexibility, and quality I love that this gets my clothes cleaner with less water, less energy, and less wear and tear on the clothes than my old machine. I love that it automatically senses how much water and detergent are needed, and has a feature to keep the clothes fresh until I can get them out of the wash. February 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cleans clothes great Maytag has proved reliable and this Maxima front loader DEFINITELY cleans my clothes much better than my old AND on "Normal" setting which takes under 1 hour to wash. Clothes are clean - soap is rinsed out better and the spin cycle takes most of water out so they dry very quickly. It also has sanitize sitting which takes longer but when needed it is great. I had Maytag Bravo top load without agitator and water saver before - it did not clean clothes well and they came out twisted up in knots. BUT the mechanics were working great when I sold.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product This is the best washer I have ever owned. It cleans my clothes very well and uses little water. It is very quite and doesn't shake the whole house when spinning. I also like the way Home Depot Handled everything. I don't have anything bad to say about the entire deal. I would recommend Homedepot. Very Happy March 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hope for water savings Folks that installed the washer were excellent. Fast ,friendly and knew what they were doing. We have only used the washer a few times and all is well so far.......time will tell if the washer does what the Maytag folks say it will. June 24, 2014
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 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
