Questions & Answers

Has Maytag made improvements regarding the bearings and seals.

I have a Bravos X model MVWX700XL1 and the bearings were roaring before it was 3 years old and now leaking and causing multiple problems. I wish I paid for the warranty. I'm thinking about buying the new one to somewhat match our dryer but I'm afraid of it not lasting.
Asked by: Mike
Mine is only two years old and it sounds like a jet taking off on the final spin. It has gotten progressively louder over the last month and I expect it to start leaking soon if I don't replace the bearing and seal. I would expect the 10 year parts warranty to cover the parts, but I expect there will be a reason they won't supply the parts. I had a front loader HE before this and the bearings/seal went out twice in a short time. I was hoping the top loader would be different. I thought Maytags were supposed to be reliable. Boy was I wrong.

Bravos XL 4.8 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer with Steam in Granite, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1709.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice features We are a family of four with children who play sports so our washer gets a workout. I like the deep water and steam options. The two most disappointing things about this washer are the lid that locks (you can't start the washer and add clothes as it fills with water) and there is no option for spin only. On occasion when washing bedding, it does not efficiently spin the water out of the large items and being able to have an extra spin would be great. The only option is to rinse and spin again which takes another 40 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Efficient I bought this washer in May 2017. It's my first HE washer so one of my first loads containing blankets became unbalanced. I have since learned that placement of the laundry evenly in the washer is key. I like the high capacity of this washer. It is quiet and has saved me $$ on my water bill.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage This has to be the worst machine ever, never buy a top load machine without agitator , clothing still comes out smelling sweaty and dirty . when washing small to medium bedding, it will not wring out the water. God knows what it would do with heavy bedding. Gonna try and sell for what I can and go back to a front load!!!
Date published: 2017-07-06
Rated 1 out of 5 by from No gentle spin on washer, or it's broken. The washer gentle cycle does not have a gentle spin I assume, because clothes come out wrinkled and tangled. Two repairmen have tested it and find nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Washer!!! This is a excellent washer in looks and performance. Initially I was hesitant after reading some of the reviews to purchase it. I think some people need to read their manual. I have had this washer for 2 years now and I have only great things to say about it. Definitely buy this model:)
