Questions & Answers

Would a king size quilt fit in this washer?

Asked by: sfield
No, never, don't even attempt it. If you could pack it in there, only the bottom half of the quilt would be in the water, even using the bulky setting. Do like I have to --- take the bedspreads, comforters, blankets, quilts to the laundrymat and wash them in one of the extra-large washers. At least they will get clean and get wet . . . this Maytag will do neither.

Is this the correct type of washer for doing throw rugs?

Would rugs throw off the balance in drum and would they actually get clean with the low water usage?
Asked by: hjh128
I sure would not attempt to put a throw rug into this washer, the tub will be totally off balance and bang against the sides of the washer. You may even break the washer with a throw rug.

Why for the deep water wash it still won't fill up past the dirty laundry

Asked by: Karen
This has to be something to do with the "claimed" energy and water savings and high efficiency features. Obviously they do not work, the washer uses way more water than a simple agitator washer uses (that you can fill up with water) and way more electricity because it takes 2 or more hours to run a single load, regardless of load size (whereas the agitator types get clothes clean in a 40 minute cycle, maximum). Sadly, you cannot change these pre-programmed water level settings, just put less laundry into the bottom of the washer, fill it with clothes about 1.4 up the tub, no more. And of course, more energy and water usage for washing, because it will take 3 loads to do what one load should do --- at least 6 hours to complete 3 loads. Go figure your electric usage and water usage.

Won't fill up with water Won't fill up

Asked by: Brian
You can use the Bulky/Sheets setting if you want a lot of water with the cycle, but maybe you shouldn't have bought a high efficiency unit.

Centennial 4.3 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer in White is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 2083.

I have had the cleapest machines work better than this one ! I bought this one 4 years ago and have never been pleased with it ! After calling and complaining I got no where but to tell me nothing was wrong with the machine ! It has never removed all the water then I would have to reset it to spin now it will not even do that. Has never gotten my clothes as clean as my old washer did. When I replaced my old machine I replaced the dryer as well and have not had any problems with the dryer but I am going to buy a new washer and dryer and you can bet it will not be a Maytag !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst machine I have ever owned! We bought this machine because we felt Maytag was a good brand and was told how energy efficient it was. First, it uses barely any water, so sometimes my clothes didn't even get wet, let alone clean. It takes about 1 hour to do a normal load. Many times it left detergent spots on my clothes. I eventually started adding gallons of water to it once the wash cycle started. We had it for less than 4 years and started having problems. It became very noisy during the spin cycle. Then one day it leaked water all over the floor and stopped working. Google this model and you will see all the problems and complaints people have lodged against this machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Less than 2 years old- BROKE I have had this washer for less than 2 years and the thing already broke. At first it seemed it wasn't fully rinsing and spinning our clothes, they were quite wet. Then today I noticed they weren't even washing our clothes- still had soggy wet baby food and dirt all over my sons stuff- now just wet, still filthy- gross. Thought maybe it just needed to run a good cleaning cycle, but now the dumb thing won't even start. The lid locks, sensing light goes on... it makes this awful "grinding" sound for a second like it's trying to start... then nothing. The lock lid and sensing light just sit and flash and the washer never starts. Contacted whirlpool customer service and they basically said since the washer is over a year old, tough break.

At just over 1 year old (careful, moderate use) it sometimes would not finish a cycle or spin the water out unless we reset the cycle. Now, at 2 years old, it stopped spinning the load dry, started making weird noises and getting stuck mid-cycle. Then we noticed rusty, muddy water leaking out of the bottom. I called Maytag and they said only the motor and the main tub parts would be under warranty, and otherwise they could not help us. I said that according to our observations and Internet research, the splutch seemed to be damaged and tub plug malfunctioned. They said we could pay $80 to send someone out, and then pay additionally for the parts and repair. I said "no thanks, we'll look at it ourselves". (At this point, we should have been warned that if we do look at it ourselves, the parts warranty is voided). But they did not tell me that, so we proceeded to troubleshoot, which included taking some parts off to inspect. We are handy people and it was not rocket science. Here's what we found: the inner tub had a significant amount of water trapped within the upper ring, which Maytag later admitted would indicate a failed seal. The main tub seal had also failed, so water had leaked through to the gearcase and mucked up the bearings. All parts of the splutch (plastic rings and gears) were chewed up, with strips of plastic peeling off. So I call back to Maytag, because sure enough, the main tub was part of the problem, if not the cause of the rest of it. Their response, "Well now that you looked at it yourself, the parts are no longer covered under warranty". The cost of all the faulty parts would be almost what we paid for it new. Maytag took 0 responsibility for their faulty product or their inadequate customer service communication about the parts warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MAYTAG!!! This washing machine isn't even 2 yrs old yet. No, I do not over load it. Don't know if it's the sensor or the gears, but doesn't finish the drain & spin cycle. If I wanted to wring clothes out, I'd wash them in the bathtub!I've never had a Maytag that's worked correctly for very long!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never ever will I buy again I purchased this washer 13 months ago and now it will not agitate. It never adds enough water to clean the clothes. I will never buy or recommend this product to anyone.

I have never been so disappointed in a product and I am a third generation Maytag customer. I wish I had not sold my 15 year old machine and purchased this model. This one does not get clothes clean, is totally aggravating in its cycles, locks its lid the whole time so stupid people can't sue the company and doesn't use use enough water on most cycles to wash the clothes! Its horrible!! I have never been so disappointed in a product ever. Find another washer to buy.
