    The last Maytag I bought was in 1997. This is different a bit. Don't know why it was changed. I got it less than two days ago and I am already pleased with my purchase. This washer is beautiful. It's also QUIET so I don't understand the noise complaints. The knobs are all turnable knobs and not computerized flashy fluff that will short out and quit working on a whim. This is exactly what I wanted! Also there is an agitator. Whoever heard of a washing machine without one, that actually cleans anything? Might as well beat your clothes on a rock if you want them clean. It's not as crazy fast as some that spit water at you like a over caffeinated monster. I didn't notice the spin or vibration cycle so it can't be much. I only noticed subdued quiet sounds. I had to check if it was still on it's so low key. I heard no loud noises at all. I know my clothes were damp and spinned out well. This takes some work off of the matching Maytag dryer I got at the same time. I am happy and believe I will love this new Maytag set as much as my 1997 duo.

    After a LOT of research and debate about front load vs top load and agitator vs non-agitator, we decided to go with this relatively old school type (top load w agitator) of washer from Maytag (who get very good reliability reviews on Consumer Reports btw). The Best Buy order process was simple and the guys who delivered it were awesome. So far we are very happy with the product and the cleanliness of the clothes. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because we have only had it a couple of months so I'm not quite ready to go 100% all-in without some additional experience and time. The biggest pro is the size of the drum. Even with the agitator in the center, it takes a LOT of clothes in one load and as I said, so far we are very pleased with the cleaning and the rinsing capabilities of it. The only con we have come across so far is how dry the clothes are when they come out. Of course, the idea here is that they then don't have to spend as much time in the dryer therefore saving energy ($). However, if you happen to like to hang some clothes and not use the dryer for them at all, cottons can be pretty wrinkled since they are almost dry when the cycle is finished. Will try to remember to come back after 6 months and add or revise my comments as necessary.

    Washer 5 Stars Review & Contractor Install 1 Star

    Washer - It cleans clothes way better than previous washer I had. I really like the auto sensing feature. It did the perfect amount of water. If you like a ridiculous amount of water to clean clothes, deep wash won't disappoint. So far really impressed after a couple of days. Also since this isn't direct drive and belt driven, I recommend this even more. Direct Drive puts all the weight and pressure on the center bearing while a belt driven has the load more distributed. Contractors - Horrible. The dryer didn't fit by 1" and they were unwilling to take the front cover off or have me do it. Due to this I had one option, either cut out the door frame or have it rejected. Mean while they have all my other appliances taken apart and pulling out the door. I ended up cutting the door frame out due to this. Pacific Sales - After talking to Pacific Sales (Best Buy Appliance Team) they corrected the issue as they were shocked and applaud that the contractors were like this. I was truly impressed by their professionalism and willingness to go above and beyond.

    Installation is everything

    We bought this washer a few weeks ago despite the negative reviews regarding vibration/noise/unbalance issues. When installers came they DID NOT level machine properly. It was close, but not exactly level. The machine walked all over the place during spin cycles. We have it installed in garage on cement floor. After taking the time to level it *precisely* (and I do mean precisely) the machine does not walk or make any weird noises (as it did when first installed). The thing apparently doesn't have counterbalance springs for the tub and so if the machine is not EXACTLY level it will dance/make noises you thought washers wouldn't make. I was going to try anti-vibration feet to set the washer on. They are rubber "feet" you put under the feet of the washer. They have recesses in the top that hold the feet of your washer and the rubber acts as a suspension to prevent the washer from moving. Can't comment on how well they work, but got good reviews on other sites. If you experience walking / banging / unbalance / weird noise issues with this washer, make sure the thing is absolutely level left to right and front to back.

    Wish I had taken more seriously the reviews I read about this machine before I purchased it. I thought maybe it was a fluke that a couple of reviewers said the machine can't handle "large" loads without completely stopping and having to be reset. Well, it happens all the time with this machine. A "large" load consisting of a blanket and two pillowcases, set on the deep wash setting, and when you think the cycle is done you discover it has stopped on the wash cycle, the items are sitting in there soaked, and you have to reset and hit drain and spin again. It doesn't just happen sometimes, but most of the time. Plus I've noticed streaks on my clothes, apparently from detergent. Also, when it does work a load takes forever to finish, and it is noisy. Really poorly made machine; I would not recommend at all.

    Ok washer but nothing special

    Not quite what I was hoping for. I really like the old fill the bucket with the selected size wash and know that all the clothing gets wet and washed. Clothing seems clean but only with the washer always on the deep wash setting. The auto sensing never has enough water to get even half the clothes wet. It definitely takes a lot longer for a full wash to complete than my old basic washer, so this makes me think more energy is used and therefore is not conserving any energy. Only the water used may be less but I would rather have more water used and know I am getting clean clothes than using more energy. It is also quite a bit louder than my old washer which surprises me. When draining, it sounds like it is leaking down inside of my wall, although it is not.

    Good but not Great

    I selected this washer after returning a Samsung that had a terrible issue with water levels not even getting clothes completely wet! This washer works well but I'm disappointed that the only option for water level is auto-sensing or completely full!! This has a huge capacity and a full tub is a waste of water for many loads. Why not offer us small, medium and large loads is addition to auto sense??? Also I have a problem with both white spots AND increased lint on dark loads. Not sure yet what the cause of these might be. Frustrating though since most other loads come out fine.

    Fast, Quiet; Very Pleased with this Maytag

    Purchased when my Whirlpool WTW4800XQ1 needed expensive repairs after just two years. I like the fact the Maytag washer's agitator is one piece so clothes won't get caught in the agitator. Also, it washes in 1/3 less time than the Whirlpool. I've read the other reviews complaining it was loud, but I find it to be very quiet. To test the capacity of the stainless steel tub, I tried washing a set of sheets and bed pad with two outfits. There was no problems at all. The washer did this huge load in 45 minutes.
