How is water level determined?

Does this machine have a load sensor to determine the water level? Or can I set it myself?
Asked by: associate
The washer has a built in water sensor. it automatically senses the load size and adjust the water level. You can not set the water level yourself.

Customer Reviews

Bravos XL 4.5 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 323.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bravos HE Low-Water I bought this washer 2 and a half years ago. Aweful. It is very rough on your cloths. Most of my fabrics are wrinkle resistant. With my old washer I could skip the dryer entirely. Now I have to use the dryer to help reduce the number of wrinkles followed by ironing. This has dramatically increased our energy consumption. We also have to rewash our cloths about 1/3 of the time. The dryer stops before the cloths are fully dry. If the cloths are not removed promptly, they begin to stink. This has also increased our energy consumption. Ripped off and cheated. A continual source of household arguments and stress. Which washer do we buy to replace it? Will it destroy my clothing? I can not afford another mistake. I regret not repairing my old washer. It did a much better job cleaning and consumed much less energy given that I could skip the dryer and never had to rewash. It was also much faster. I own the Bravo HE low-water washer. My whites are now beige, wrinkled, and I smell bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW !!! I finally had to replace my 19 year old Roper washing machine because it was leaking. I also had a Roper dryer, but my wife was able to procure a like new Maytag XL dryer, a few months earlier. So when the washer died, I decided to get a matching unit to complement the dryer. According to my wife, the machine is super. After reading the other reviews, You either love or hate this washer, fortunately my wife loves it !!! And as everyone knows, "a happy wife means a happy life !!!"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Maytag Washer I just washed 2 loads and it cleans better than my not so very old "he" machine. The only con I have it's a bit loud, but I'm sure I will be very happy with my Maytag!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Warning I thought buying Maytag meant quality, our machine is now 4 months old and someone forgot a penny in their pocket, went through the wash and under the washer plate. We were told this is common and not covered by warrantee. Maytag used to mean quality, now it means design flaw. I am so disappointed, this could happen many times over in the life of a machine, that's a lot of service calls. poor design, washer plate should have been made removable so the consumer can retrieve small items that could clog the machine resulting in costly repairs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great until it breaks Bought this model for my mother a little over two years ago and she has absolutely loved it. The problem is that it began making a noise when spinning so she called Maytag and was told it sounded as though the bearings were bad. She paid for a technician to check it out and he confirmed the bearings needed to be replaced - to the tune of $500. (Apparently this is a well-known issue with these units - do some research online.) He said it was a shame since the machine looked virtually brand new which it was. Of course, this happened after the one year warranty plus the extra year from my credit card had expired. Home Depot extended warranty appears reasonably priced so if you select this model I strongly recommend it for as long as you can get it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not trust in MAYTAG!! I purchased this washer on Feb 1st 2015. It was delivered on Feb 10th 2015. I am writing this review on Feb 26th. My washer stopped working on Feb 24th.. The washer went out during a cycle and never would power back on. +700 for around two weeks of usage is too costly for me. Since you can only return items such as washers back to Home Depot within 48 hours. I guess I am stuck. I have to wait for the repair man to come out. Check to see what the problem is, most likely wait while they send out for the parts. Then I have to wait for another appointment. This is going to take longer then what I had the washer for. Having an extended warranty from Home Depot means nothing for the first year. Even though you are sold a five year warranty you get about four years out of it. For the first year you have to deal with the manufacturer. I have never been so disappointed with a purchase. I purchased a Maytag washer because I wanted some quality. I should have purchased a cheap washer. it probably would have lasted longer. Maytag no longer means quality. Remember that!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money Our Maytag high-efficiency washer has broken down after 4 years of light to medium usage with a spin cycle issue. The repair required is an outer tub shaft assembly at a cost that amounts to over 50% of the original purchase cost of our Maytag HE washer. After reading the reviews on many of the big box store and furniture store websites it appears our problem is not unique, many other Maytag customers have had similar problems with this washer. Home Depot is a great store with great customer service, but take a pass on Maytag.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Meant for Line Drying Clothing When they tell you that this machine uses modern washing methods, they do not tell you that those washing methods involve wrinkling the heck out of clothing. Honestly, I don't freak out over a few wrinkles, but our clothes look like they were left to dry in a crumpled ball on the floor. If you regularly use a dryer, especially one with the new steam option, this is probably not a problem. But expect any of your delicates that line dry to be extremely wrinkled. And if you regularly hang all clothing to dry, this is a deal breaker. You can adjust the soil level of the load so that the clothes are washed more gently, and that does greatly improve the wrinkling situation. However, when I set the washer on "light soil level" then my clothes are not clean; I've picked food crumbs off my toddler's shirts as I pull them out of the washer. The harsh treatment of the clothing on a medium or heavy soil level has also put holes in some of our clothing. Not the 20 year old sweatpants that deserve holes either, but brand new items that are made out of more delicate materials. In addition to the wrinkles and holes, we have lint and pet hair all over our clothes, which again, I'm sure a dryer would remove but we only use ours on occasion. Oh and the detergent leaves white streaks and marks on our darker clothes. I use the high efficiency liquid detergent, no more than a quarter capful for a full load. I called Maytag after one month. I was told to separate our laundry by soil level, type of material, and by colors, then select the appropriate setting for each load. Also, make sure I wash darks before lights. Also, that the white streaks were caused by detergent build-up and that the machine needs to be cleaned with a special cleaner. I said I've only had it a month. They said, yes it needs to be cleaned with the special cleaner once a month. So in our situation, keeping this washer would mean running it on a "deep water wash" on warm with the extra rinse cycle which decreases the detergent residue in between monthly cleanings. It would also mean separating my laundry by color, soil level, and fabric type, running an extra cleaning cycle once a month, buying special cleaner in addition to the special detergent, and regularly using the dryer which doubled our electric bill when I used to use it. I know a lot of people have great things to say about this washer, but depending on your situation, you might want to think twice about getting a "high-efficiency" machine. It's not saving any of my time or energy, that's for sure. Thankfully, Home Depot has excellent customer service and is willing to work with us to replace a non-returnable item.
