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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great washer Great washer. Love love love the steam option. Would highly recommend [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase for Family of 5 We recently replaced our 10-year-old washer and dryer with this high efficiency Maytag. So far, we have been nothing short of thrilled with its performance. It's fast, big, quiet, and efficient.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I am kind of disappointed of the new technology If you have an older washer that fills all the basket with water and let you soak your clothes to remove stains....DONT GET RID OF IT! This new machines have a super long cycle an hour for the shortest one, and doesn't remove stains, if you use the maximum extraction it tears the cloth, the whites come out full of stains, the colors seems as if the softener stains it. If you want to wash bulky stuff if looses balance and even with a comforter gets stuck, you have to come back and rebalance. I like the big capacity, and cant find an old model with this big capacity... but I don't like this one that much. I went to check out all the models al homedepot, and this one is the best jn this new technology. so I will just have to learn the advantages of it. After you use it leave it open, because it smells horribly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Run away! One problem after another. Can't finish the auto-clean cycle, Rinse and spin cycle fails with certain settings consistently, way to easy to get out of balance. Just not a good design paired with amazingly poor build quality and material. All internal piping are hoses, thin ones with apparently rather brittle fittings. This thing proves the KISS principle by simply not following it. Pity, first and last Maytag purchase, it's that bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this washer I was really impressed that this washer got out a blood stain (small nosebleed on a white sheet) that I had let sit for 5 days. No way would my old washer have done that. What I love most about this washer is its HUGE capacity, technically just 75% more, but it seems more like 3x more. With my old machine, I had to do 3 loads a week, and kinda sorta overstuffed the loads, which means the whites never got that white. Now I do just 2, neither load even full capacity, and my whites are definitely whiter. I also love the features I've tried (eco cold, delayed start), probably haven't used even half the features available. Cons: 1) It is pricey. You can see for yourself how much more it is than most Maytags. 2) It can get noisy. It seems to be twice noisy as my old machine. 3) It is large. While it's not much wider than my old machine, it's about 4" taller and 4" deeper. If your W&D space is limited, make sure to measure carefully to see if it will fit. All said, I love this washer. No buyer's regret here. I'd definitely buy the same washer again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean clothes are important! We bought this washer just after having a sewage flood in our basement. We were excited to have the ability to steam clean all the clothing affected by the flood so that we can use them comfortably. The washer has many great settings for any types of laundry, a HUGE capacity, and is very water and energy efficient. We think it's great on all fronts and well worth the price!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Be Warned I have had this washer since November. It has virtually destrolyed about $1200.00 worth of clothes and linens since then. No matter what setting and not matter how you load the washer it rips things apart. Maytag will not honor their products so I am stuck with a machine that costs close to a grand that I am virtuallly afraid to use. Buyer beware. If you are considering this product back off and stay away
