Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by notpleased Shopping at Lowes from now on
Spent close to $10,000.00 remodeling kitchen and utility room at Home Depot. Bought the floor display model that was already stacked. When installing the units myself found that the stack kit was sent with everything except mounting brackets. Went by store and was told I had to order it online. So the store took off parts that were attached when I purchased the item and refused to provide the brackets. I have 2 bathrooms to remodel next and Lowes will be the store I make my purchases at. Very poor customer service. Also Lowes had the product in stock. Didn't have to wait for delivery.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by loosecannon USES LITTLE WATER
The crew arrived on time and set machine up using great care. . . very nice guys. the machine looks beautiful and it's quite large, my Queen sized comforter set and about 4 sheets fit quite comfortably. My only problem was that it didn't seem to be using enough water. I know it's water efficient, but I like to see my laundry swirling around in water and detergent bubbles and I didn't see any of this at all even using more than the recommended detergent. I got to the point where I stopped the machine halfway at one point to see if the clothes were even wet and they were. However if there was some way of adding more water that would make my day. As it is, I just washed twice to make sure they were actually getting clean. I did a regular wash and a fast wash and they did smell clean.
Now that doesn't serve the purpose of efficiency at all...
On my second wash,(white laundry) they didn't look as clean as my previous stacked washer (Frigidaire) got them. So now I know I have to prewash certain whites before adding them to this machine. All in all I give it a 4. I now have to find a way to mount my dryer to the top of this washer . From all of the comments I've read, it seems the Maytag dryer doesn't fit properly on this corresponding washer as its 2" shorter, so I decided not to throw away my perfectly good Frigidaire dryer and to use it instead.

Cheap and inadequate. Does not do a good job of stabilizing the units. Only connection is in the rear. Should have something to connect the front of the washer& dryer together too.

The kit does what it is supposed to do; keeps the dryer stacked securely on top of the washing machine without moving around. Be sure to attack the adhesive strips to the bottom of the dryer, not on top of the washer! The delivery people are not responsible for reading the instructions, and they will probably put the strips on the washer if you don't pay attention.
That being said, I think the price is too high for what is included in the kit.

The stack kit made stacking my dryer easy and safe! I love the extra space we have!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brad Design flaw in 5000 units when using this stacking kit
The 5000 series should have a unique stacking kit designed for it since this kit is Bad in that the units when stacked are different depths so when using this stacking kit (which requires the BACK be aligned , it leaves the Dryer (top unit) sitting BACK from the washer unit below.
The fronts of the two 5000 series units do NOT align vertically and it looks strange , look at the photos.
In the store , you won't ever see the stacking kit installed because they wouldn't sell any units that way , because in the STORE they are aligned so the fronts are vertically the same...
And , when installed in your house and when the end customer realizes they have been sold units that don't stack properly and then call Maytag, they are told units installed wrong , but of course Home Depot and installer say that's the way Maytag made them ..... end user left in the middle
Bad design flaw , and all they need to do is make a new stacking bracket to compensate for the 2" offset , so guess who will need to make that , me ....
What sort of Beta testing do these people do on their product , it was evident to me in 30seconds of seeing the unit installed .... OK , maybe 10seconds of seeing it....
one attached photo is my install , the other attached photo is from another customer on this site which it's obvious they have same issue .
What is strange to me is who else out there has this issue on stacked 5000 and just put's up with the flawed design of the stacking kit without doing something about it ?
