4.5 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer with Steam in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1211.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so great I bought my Maytag front loader in Febuary of 2015 it was high rated and that was the main reason I choose it. This washer has many options but with that many reasons not to work when you need it to. There is a trap that socks or small things get stuck in. Its located in a place to ensure you have to call a repair guy and wait 2 weeks for him to show. I use a garment bag for small items but seems this trap still needs to be cleaned out once a month. My husband has sense looked up schematics and taught himself how to do this or i would be going to the laundromat w a $1000 Washer in my laundry room. It also gets fussy about the water level faults out and you guessed it have to call repair guy. I understand that appliances arent made the same as they used to but the cost of this machine makes you believe it will last 5 to 10 yrs without trouble. Personally I would talk to a local repair person see what they recommend because these manufacturers are to focused on making money off extended warranties to create good working products.

Was a great washer up until excessive mildew showed up after just 4-5 months. And this is not the common front loader mildew near the door kind of problem, or the smell that can sometimes be fixed by Affresh or other home remedies. No, this is something entirely different, and even worse in my opinion. I started to see little black spots in the dispenser tray. At first, didn't think much of it. Cleaned it up with a rag or paper towel. Incredibly difficult to get every nook and cranny clean in the dispenser, and even still more black spots showed up not too long after being cleaned. Then, I realized you could remove the dispenser tray entirely from the washer. There is a push button toward the back. Push it, and it will slide out. When I looked behind there, it was unbelievable what I saw. Picture attached. Mildew had taken over behind the dispenser. I had another Maytag front loader (2009 model) before this one with a similar dispenser and never had this problem, or many other issues, so I was shocked. Did some google searching and found that others were having the same issue. I suspect that many others have this problem, and don't even realize it because they don't look behind the dispenser. I contacted Maytag customer service. Their response was disappointing - Tried to tell me it was normal and that it needed to be wiped down after every wash as a part of regular maintenance. Maytag also suggested leaving the drawer open after use to air it out... To me, this is not normal, especially for what is supposed to be the top of the line, best washer on the market, but Maytag refuses to acknowledge a problem. If anyone else reading this has the same problem with their washer (or another), I'd love to see you reply to my review and tell me about it.

Then, a part in the machine broke and there is a loose ball bearing in the machine and it won't work. We have now been without a washing machine for almost a month, have spent over 15 hours on the phone with Maytag and had 2 of their technicians come to our home, diagnose the problem and then refuse to fix the machine (say it should be replaced instead). Still after this, Maytag won't replace the machine and only continues to offer to have a third factory service company come to diagnose the problem. Can't recommend this machine to anyone after our experience where nobody cares (3 people at Maytag have separately told us the machine should be replaced but were overruled by supervisors).

The design is flawed and maytag ( and Home depot) refuses to honor the warranty. After washing, the spin cycle is insufficient to dry the clothes. As a result, it take 4+ hours in the dryer ( and $$$$) to dry 3 towels. We had 3 technicians and no resolution. One technician came twice and said the " these new energy efficient machines can only handle 3 towels per wash and you can't mix towels with sheets". We purchased the machine from Home depot and they have NO RETURN policy for major appliance. You are left to deal with Maytag who are unwilling to exchange this machine as it is a lemon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine! We purchased this washing machine almost two months ago to replace our GE Front Loader. I was hesitant to purchase another front loader as our GE machine had been a nightmare with failing to spin heavy clothes well and making a terrible noise when spinning towels, whites etc. We love our new Maytag machine! It is a quiet machine that spins clothes exceptionally well without any vibrating or movement. My only regret is that we did not buy this machine sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic washer I upgraded from an older agitator washer, to this Maytag front loader. I am blown away how much cleaner our clothes are, using a fraction of the water. It is also much faster, completing a full load in about 45 mins. I read a number of reviews saying that this washer was loud, and I can't possibly imagine how it could be described that way. They only noises we hear are the water going in and coming out. The unit is very well insulated and incredibly quiet, particularly during the spin cycle. Overall, a truly fantastic product. It's well worth a read through the manual to understand what the washer is capable of and the various settings. For example, I was very impressed with how wrinkle free clothes come out using the winkle free setting on the washer and matching dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washing and volume capacity I bought this washer a month ago and am very pleased with its overall performance. The washer is much quieter than my old one. I like the many options for washing cycles that it comes with. So far the clothes are coming out clean and fresh. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
