Questions & Answers

Can you select the amount of water you want to use?

For instance, if I want to wash a small amount of clothes with a large amount of water?
Asked by: KTLM
No if we could our clothes might get cleaned, the machine determines the water amount by the weight of the clothing. Not enough water to clean them period!

Asked by: cp203
Yes it has a soak function but you can't even use hot water on it which is just stupid.

Yes, but with free delivery it's not worth picking it up. Plus they can haul away your old ones and haul away the trash.

Bravos XL 4.5 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 2789.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from ETC Board Get the extended warranty and keep it up. My washer is 4 1/2 years old and I love it. Then it gave an error code of F-51. The washer works but cannot handle heavier loads or it gets thrown out of balance. The A&E repairman told me to get a new washer without the "computer" in it, it would be cheaper. Total estimate is $504 to repair and he said I could get a better washer for that amount. I called Maytag and there is nothing they can do because it's out of warranty. I still use the washer but until it's repaired or replaced I have to keep the loads small. Since the washers life expectancy is only 4-5 years I can't give it a really good rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer Replace a 20 year old GE washer with this. Wow, have things changed. First its cleans very well. It mostly betters or at the very least equals the old washer it replaced. Its quiet. Even though it makes odd noise compared to the old washer they are not loud. The amount of water it uses is surprising little, but it works. The bulky mode uses a lot more water if you need it. But, trust me for normal washing it just isn't needed any more. The only real trade off has been time. The power wash mode on all the highest settings can take up 1.5hrs, but that's the longest mode and it does wash the best. Normal mode is more like 50 mins. I haven't used the quick wash mode so I can't comment on how well it works. The old washer could do its heady duty load in 30mins, but it didn't clean as well so. The cloths do come out drier with max extract , so that saves you some time. Actually, quite a bit of time with bulky things like towels and comforters. Overall,very happy with everything so far. This isn't the washer you grew up with, I recommend you read the manual, ask questions if you need to, maybe google some tips about HE washers. If its not cleaning well, its probably you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY HAPPY AND IN LOVE! Is it wrong to come home and WANT to do laundry? I am that way every day now that I have this. Who thought my clothes would be clean and hardly use water? This machine is awesome. I washed a queen down alternative comforter and it didn't even fill up the washer. I haven't been able to wash a large enough load to fill my washer. It's smart, I used too much HE soap and it yelled at me. I barely use soap now at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problems with shredded towels I previously owned a top loader traditional Maytag, which lasted 15 years before the motor went belly up. I decided to stick with Maytag due to reputation. I was somewhat hesitant about buying a "HE" washer, as I heard problems with clothes being destroyed, but the reviews for this particular model were good, so I went with it. I've had the washer for 3 months, and I noticed towels coming out with shredded sides right from the beginning. I made sure the washer was loaded properly, as per the instructions. But after this much time, I see a trend - white cotton towels being shredded on the sides. Last night I washed 4 nearly new white towels, and one came out destroyed on one side. I have not noticed this with other clothing, shirts, sheets and what not come out fine. It may be the denser material in the white towels, who knows, but they are definitely getting destroyed by this washer. Given the choice again, I would go with a front loader.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bravos machine! These Maytag Bravos XL machines can wash several blankets at a time. The drum is huge!! All items come out clean and fresh even when doing large loads. They are also energy friendly and use very little water. Excellent machines. I love them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We have one in gray and it broke down after just three years Right before we went on vacation. The issue was with the agitator and control board. When we hired a repair person, he said that Maytag Bravos model have so many problems. In order to replace the parts (control board) and labor, would cost more than the unit-he said. Therefore, we had dirty laundry before we left and the irony is that we had a working washer and dryer (older model) at our vacation destination. Not having a washer dryer is very inconvenient for a family of 4 who have kids who are not quite potty trainer at night. I do not recommend the Bravos. I believe that the model tarnishes the 'Maytag' trusted brand. And the heating element went out on the dryer this week. Not good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has a huge capacity and very quiet- So far, so good! Huge tub. GREAT sale price when purchased too. Value vs. Quality was the selling point along with Home Depots great 5 year "bumper to bumper" warranty. I bought this Maytag to replace my "Highly Rated" LG front load which had a 10 year warranty on the motor. I didn't buy the LG from Home Depot and I did not purchase the extended warranty because the cost was not very reasonable BUT,exactly 2.5 years later the motor seized. I called LG and after weeks of back and forth calls & emails, they agreed to send a certified LG repairman (which was only 4 miles from my home). He was going to charge me a $110.00 to walk in my door and another $400-$500 in labor to fix it? The motor was in warranty so it was going to be replaced- just not the exorbitant cost of labor!! I contacted other repairmen and after describing what happened they knew exactly what the problem was and indeed there would be a lot of labor involved. I will NEVER buy another LG product! In fact, I would not even except one if it was a gift! I was told by the repair people that this machine would serve my well for my money, Even with the 5 year service contract, I feel like I got a great deal on a well made machine! Do not buy LG!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large capacity, many cycles, minor annoyances I bought this washer a couple months ago and we've been using it pretty heavily. The large capacity of the washer is GREAT in allowing us to wash less loads. The multiple settings are also a nice extra for this washer. I have twin 6-year-olds and their clothes tend to get very dirty. This washer has cleaned every piece of clothing well. Somewhat surprising with how little water it uses. A couple small issues: When I first purchased this washer I thought it was great that there was no agitator arm inside. I figured it would be nice to just throw the wash in and hit start. However, you should be aware that you have to manually set the clothes in against the sides of the washer leaving the middle of the washer clear. Just seems like the easier solution would've been to leave the agitator arm in the machine. The washer also tends to become unbalanced pretty easily. When we wash larger items such as bed sheets they bunch up together and cause an unbalanced load. The washer stops running and the error message for an unbalanced load is on the display. We then have to rearrange the wash in the machine. I'm sure this helps out the internal parts from wearing out too soon but it is annoying to have to babysit the machine whenever we wash larger items. The final knock on the machine is that after every 30 loads the machine makes you clean it out. There is a cycle to essentially flush the washer out to keep it from getting moldy. Once again, this is most likely a good preventative measure but when you have several loads of wash to do and after the first load the washer alerts you that the cleaning is required it is somewhat annoying to have to run an hour long clean. In summary, the washer seems to be great. Very large capacity, lots of cycles to choose from and of course does the actual job of cleaning clothes well. The minor issues with the machine are only annoyances and for that reason I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars.
