I've read several reviews on the Consumer Reports page for this model that complain about mold forming in the detergent tray. I'm not seeing that complaint in other reviews. Is this an issue with this model?
Asked by: Contractor
As with any product or piece of product that has water running thru it, it needs to be cleaned weekly. Just take it out over to the sink and wash it and then let it dry or wipe it dry. If done weekly, then no problem. We also keep the washer door open after washings. We have owned a front loading Maytag washer dryer since 2000. Easy on clothes and colors! Would not own any other brand!

4.5 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Stackable White Front Load Washing Machine with Steam, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 2462.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Clean clothes / sloppy controls The washer works fairly well, but has some rather interesting control labels. I am not sure how a Cold Wash cycle differs from the Normal cycle using cold water. Is it necessary ?? Normal, Bedding and Delicates are fairly standard.... other selections like Sanitize, Allergen and Wrinkle Control should probably be cycle features rather than a discrete choice. Many machines have a Sport cycle for athletic clothes with performance fabrics, a much more relevant option than those listed above. Clothes are generally clean and the washer does a good job extracting water on the spin cycle... most of the time. Sometimes the clothes are very wet and drying time on the matching dryer pushes almost 90 minutes. The laundry detergent intake slides freely and feels flimsy .... it does not have a spring loaded release/lock. It also does not drain properly and there is always water remaining in the liquid fabric softener spot. The countdown timer is simply a rough estimate and may or may not reflect the actual cycle time remaining. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The newest technology is fantastic I bough this to replace an older front loading washer and I'm glad I did. It's a night and day comparison. The old machine vibrated and made a lot of noise when extracting water between cycles. This new Maytag is stable as can be and quiet too. Here are some of the features that I really like. Steam for hard to get out stains. Fresh Hold is REALLY nice to keep mold and mildew from developing. The load spins every 15 minutes while a fan gently circulates air through the clothes for up to 12 hours to give you time to move them to the dryer. Then there's a really cool light that comes on after every 30 loads to remind you to run the clean cycle with HE bleach to keep the washer pristine. Then there is an interior light which fixes it so you never leave an unmatched sock behind. The expect annual energy cost is only $11 - less than $1 per month. I am so happy the old machine broke now that I have been expose to all the goodness that is Maytag. I highly recommend this washer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer and dryer! Don't hesitate to buy I’ve had this washer and dryer for a week and can’t believe I waited so long to purchase the set. My last set was also Maytag and they lasted 25 years with no repairs so I had to buy the same brand. However, had I realized how wonderful the new models were, I wouldn’t have waited so long. Firstly, I have arthritis and the front load units with pedestals have been so helpful on my back and shoulders. I can’t believe how clean everything is. Old stains came right out with the steam feature, even on items that had been in the dryer previously. The drum on the washer is large enough for my king size down blankets, no residue left behind. The control panels looked intimidating, but are quite easy to use. Initially I was disappointed Tide Pods were not recommended for this unit, however the HE liquid works great. Would purchase them again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased overall! I bought my washer/dryer combo approximately three weeks ago and am so glad I did. My clothes smell and feel cleaner than they did with my old top load washer and dryer. My favorite feature is the sanitize cycle. Also, this thing is HUGE. I can fit the amount of items in one load that previously took three. Wish I would have upgraded sooner! I would say the only negative thing I have found is some small items (socks) have gotten stuck during the cycle in the area between the tub and the door. I also have found detergent pods have gotten stuck a few times if I placed them on top- so I just have to remember to place it in the center of the drum in between items.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from After one year of extremely light service (i.e. 1.5 adults), zero moves etc... it seems our washe... After one year of extremely light service (i.e. 1.5 adults), zero moves etc... it seems our washer has already died. Coupled with design flaws such as the dribbling soap dispenser and inability to use bleach in anything but sanitize mode the concern with most newer machines (faulty digital control units) it has proven true that the control panels are a weak link. Ours doesn't have a scratch on it but now just goes haywire and no options can be selected to even complete a cycle. My pregnant wife is loving being without a working washing machine! Be careful what your sales rep tells you about the 10 year warranty, it basically covers the motor and a stainless steel basket both not at all likely to fail in the early years of use. The problem started literally at the one year mark (designed to fail?) and we thought it was just our imagination. Surely a spotless new 900.00 machine wouldn't be trash already. From what I've heard, we shouldn't expect anything from Maytag but if they do anything to stand behind their product, I will update this review...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great washer but be aware of the drain pump filter I've had this washer for 10 months now and I'm thrilled with the performance and how quiet it is. I've even been able to wash my king size comforter AND sheets in one load. The one thing I am very unhappy about is the drain pump filter -- it's extremely difficult to reach since there is no access door. We have to slide the washer out of our laundry room, remove the back of the washer, and then my husband has to get underneath the washer to remove the filter to be cleaned. It makes a HUGE mess too. I can't understand why Maytag would not make this more accessible since they recommend cleaning it at least once every 6 months. We have found we have to do it once every 3-4 months since we wash 2-3 loads every day. Had I known about this, I probably would have reconsidered purchasing it -- not everyone has the ability make that kind of repair/maintenance. The performance and cleaning capabilities are awesome though so I recommend it but with caution.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Maytag & HD what happened Here is the positive and negative story. Well I also purchased the matching electric dryer which is great...the positive. The washer does a good job at its primary job...washing the clothes. The negative is that is is VERY NOISY during fill and drain. The brand new washer has a defective water pump possibly. The SAME DAY 9/28 it was delivered and installed by HD we ran a load of wash and couldn't believe the noise! Took a video of it and called HD first. HD told me it was up to Maytag. Maytag says they will send someone out to look at it but if there is nothing found I would be billed. Needless to say the Appliance Alliance repair service is sent out by Maytag. Tech agrees that something is wrong...could be the pump or water level switch to start with. So that was on 10/7. Waiting for a call back to have the parts replaced and hopefully fix the brand new washer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, Effective, Yet a Variety of Features I've had this machine for a week- It was a replacement for an 8-year-old front loading Electrolux that was fraught with troubles from the get-go. I appreciated Maytag's "made in USA" and better than average warranty. This machine install was fairly easy and straight-forward. I have loved the way my clothes come out clean and fresh-smelling. I did not realize this machine was *not* and HE machine- but it replaced an HE machine- and I can't really tell a difference in the water usage- If I had realized beforehand- would the lack of an HE label stopped me from purchasing this machine? Maybe- but too late now. I will say the machine is louder- the water going thru the detergent area sounds like a garden hose spigot- and the spin cycles sound like something is about to take off from the laundry room. The different sounds the selector knob and wash complete are pleasing to the ear and not a noxious sound. The front panel selection area is sensitive- I have changed cycles by accidentally brushing by the machine- but there is a lockout option to keep you from doing that. Bottom Line: Overall- So far, so good :-) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
