      ...Just to give a little background.......I have been through a couple of washers in my lifetime..... About 20-25 years ago, I had purchased a top loading Kenmore impeller HE washer and matching dryer. Because the washer was a first generation model and HE was new in the U.S. at the time, I decided to purchase the warranty. The HE impeller washer took time to adjust to...no more agitation as I knew it, less water and definitely less detergent. Unfortunately, I never came to fully appreciate or accept the impeller functionality. At about the 2 year mark, the impeller began to have issues - thank goodness I had purchased the warranty because it served me well; I probably had the washer repaired at least 4 times in a 6 year period. Once the warranty ran out and the machine died again, it was time to move on and start over. So now, onto my next purchase.... a Whirlpool duet washer/dryer HE pair front loader. This time I did not purchase the warranty. By now, I was used to lower water levels, no agitation, less detergent and accepting life with a HE appliance. I did find myself missing a top loading machine like my former Kenmore model, even though that model had an impeller that I despised. With the whirlpool front loader, I found stuffing mounds of laundry - into what seemed like a tiny mouse-sized porthole - annoying. Yes, I'm physically capable of bending and twisting to shove laundry into the little porthole, I just didn't like to... so in my mind (simply my opinion), it was a bad design. Yes.... the front loaders are cool, look sleek and futuristic... but for me, I'd rather have functionality, practicality and a workhorse contender. I will be fair, my whirlpool front load washer did well for 9 years without any maintenance until recently, when I heard clunking (like I was washing tennis shoes) so I stopped the load and opened the door. Yikes! Pieces that look like razor-blades came tumbling out of the machine and oil stains had dripped all over my laundry. Argh!!!!!! Sorry, but I don't think I can forgive oil stains. So.....it was bye-bye to my HE front-loading Whirlpool washer; our relationship was good while it lasted. Fast forward to now... my current purchase....A Maytag!! I was determined to go back to an old school top load agitation-style washing machine model, if I could find one. I didn't need fancy dials/digits/colorful models that would drive me to the airport! I just wanted a basic solid high-performing machine that would wash clothes and get them clean. I needed a workhorse machine that could manage volume, because I had added dog rescue/fostering to my life which means I had lots more laundry to contend with since my last Whirlpool purchase. I now wash daily dirty sheets, towels, rugs and dog bedding. When I came across the maytag 4.7 cu ft. 11-cycle top-loading washer (model MVWB765FW) with an agitator....I couldn't believe it. Could it really be an old school, top-loading, agitation-style washing machine? Woot! So I meticulously researched several models online, did comparisons of their functions, features, and price and found that the Maytag 4.7 would be a good fit for me. I read comments from others that had purchased the washer before me and most were favorable. When reviewing comments, we all must keep in mind that the opinions of the purchaser (mine included) are based on one's former appliance experience and current needs. So if we had a feature on our former appliance that we enjoyed that's not carried over to our replacement appliance, we will be disappointed. That said, I was already used to HE and lower water levels and I've always halved the laundry detergent amount recommended by the manufacturer to ensure my clothes remain soap-free after the rinse cycle. Remember that the detergent manufacturers want you to use as much detergent as possible so they sell more detergent! I have not yet had to use the higher water fill feature on this new machine since I use a conservative amount of laundry soap. The noise level of the machine did not bother me - although in fairness to other reviewers that felt that the machine is noisy, my laundry room is located in the garage, so I hear very little. The large capacity works well for me since I'm frequently washing large items. It is a deep capacity machine for sure...I have no problem pulling washed items out of the bottom of the machine, but I'm about 5' 7" in height so I'd imagine that could be more challenging for those who are petite in stature. Some mentioned the locking lid as an annoyance, but you can pause the cycle and open the lid if needed. My guess is that the locking lid is a safety feature design on all washing machines now. I found the spin cycle to be amazing.... the clothes really wring out nicely. I had a lot of issues with the spin cycle on my former front loader and frequently had to run the spin cycle twice because the laundry - especially towels - were still wet and heavy after their original rinse and spin. Not with this Maytag! The strong wring cycle has definitely allowed me to cut my dryer time in half! The smokey glass top lid is a nice added bonus, as you actually see what's going on with the soap, water, agitation and spin levels. Nice touch maytag! The delivery was on time and the delivery men extremely professional. I was concerned that I might have to connect the washing machine water hoses myself, but the lead delivery man introduced himself as an independent contractor and he and his assistant set the machine up for me in its entirety. He balanced the machine and demo'd the features for me and made sure I was okay with delivery, set-up and model before he left. That was a nice surprise to be treated as a valued customer! W-T-G Best Buy in picking excellent local delivery service! I have had the machine for 5 days now and have probably done about 15 loads of laundry and am thrilled to be doing laundry with a top load agitator model again. I would definitely recommend this model if your life situation is similar to mine. For me, I was most concerned about purchasing a lemon, which in all honesty, can happen to anyone when purchasing any major consumer product. So, I did the math and figured out depreciation cost/risk ratio for my situation, and decided to purchase a 3 year warranty to somewhat ease my mind for the short term. I'm well aware that appliance manufacturers are now using "planned obsolescence" in their sales strategy and products are unfortunately no longer manufactured to last a lifetime. So the saying is true....they really don't make 'em like they used to!

      Good cleaning from a noisy washer

      Posted
      anon747

      This washer is the noisiest washer I’ve ever had. In fact, it makes so many strange sounds, I thought it was defective. So I exchanged it for another same one. The second washer made the same unusual sounds. For example, when the agitator turns back and forth, it makes a “clunk” sound at the end of each turn. When the water pump turns on periodically to drain water during the final spin cycle, it makes a grinding/ratcheting sound as if the gears slipped (sounds like a rapid “cot-cot-cot-cot-cot”). Also, anything other than a small load will sometimes cause the final high-speed water extraction spin cycle to sound a bit like a little helicopter is landing (no kidding). And this washer, despite being perfectly level, vibrates more than I expected. (By comparison, the recalled Samsung washer I had was very quiet, but then it did have more serious problems.) Maybe I should have anticipated that this would not be a quiet washer, because the user guide has a section entitled “Normal Sounds You Can Expect” – although there’s no mention of the type of worrisome sounds I am hearing. So, for me, unusual sounds/noise is the biggest problem with this washer. A couple of other negatives: (1) there is no Pre-Soak mode, (2) the tub is not 100% stainless steel, and (3) even when cold temperature is selected for the wash, hot water may be added to maintain a minimum water temperature (but it added hot water for me when the air temperature was 70+ degrees!). On the plus side, the washer does a good job of cleaning clothes (better than my recalled Samsung) – probably the most important quality. The “Deep Fill” mode does seem to provide an adequate amount of extra water (unlike the Samsung). The washer does a very good job of extracting water from the clothes, so drying time is minimized. The Whirlpool/Maytag repair guy was fast and knowledgeable (they came to my house the very next day to check out the first washer). And my local Best Buy was easy to work with during my exchange of the first washer. These are my observations, but I’ve used this Maytag for only a couple of weeks. Hopefully, those unusual sounds are just sounds, and maybe they will not impact the durability of the washer. And only time will tell if the pluses remain pluses for many years down the road. I guess a more meaningful review can be made only after the 1-year warranty period has passed. Hope this helps you.

      Frustrating

      Posted
      Aggravated
      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      When our expensive, front loader washer died, I said "never again" and vowed to buy an upright with an agitator. I did the best I could reviewing them, and ended up selecting this one because it has a "deep fill" option and a large capacity, among other things. One thing that was very important to me was to be able to safely put in a load of colors, dark clothes, or anything else, following a load of bleached whites--and not have to fear that there might be some bleach residue left in the washer that was not properly rinsed away, and have my subsequent load of clothes ruined with bleach spots. And even though it should not be necessary to do so, I would use the deep-fill setting to ensure that there was enough water to properly rinse away the bleach. I did a carefully controlled test, making sure I used only the recommended amounts of detergent and bleach. When it came time for the rinse cycle, imagine my frustration when I discovered that despite using 14" of water for washing, (that's all "deep-fill" gets you....14") the rinse cycle still only uses a paltry seven or eight inches. When I followed this white load with a load of dark clothes--sure enough--there were the white streaks, going down the leg of my husband's blue jeans, and down the front of one of his blue polo shirts. I am so aggravated. So what to do next?? It was still within the fourteen days that I had to return the machine if I was not happy with it. But then what? Get a different kind of weak, ineffectual machine that does the same thing? This is how they all are now! Nothing uses enough water to properly rinse the drum! When I was little, my mother and I had to haul our wash to the laundromat...but even there, the old style machines were sturdy and meant business. The hot water was HOT and "rinsed" meant rinsed completely. But you can't buy quality anymore. Salesmen will try to say that you can, but when you get your machine home, you will have what I got. In the end, I decided to keep the machine because I knew I wouldn't do any better. Now, I wash my white loads TWICE. Once with detergent to get them clean, and once without--on deep-fill--just to wash out the machine with 14" of water. So much for "water saving!" Another one of the more noticeable problems with the machine is that it does not heat water. The hottest the water will get is whatever comes out of your hot water heater. So good luck killing the e-coli when you wash a load of diapers. "Diapers" should actually be a setting on the machine.

      I Want My Old Maytag Back :-(

      I am really disappointed with the changes to the washer/dryer industry in the past 20 years! My old Maytag washer lasted 22 years, which is unheard of by today's standards. Most are lucky if they last 10-12 years and are now made by only a couple companies since they've all been bought out (including Maytag). It took some time to get used to this new Maytag. It seriously takes me twice as long to wash my clothes vs. my old Maytag, but I hear all other brands are the same due to the energy efficient features. My old Maytag washed a regular-sized load in 25 minutes. Those days are GONE!! This new machine takes at least 60-90 minutes! I also have very little control over how this machine washes. It goes through a sensing cycle in the beginning and weighs the load to determine how much water to use, so you have no say in the matter. Once you push the start button, you just have to let it do its thing. And forget about pre-soaking a load!! In my prior Maytag, I used to soak my husband's socks by selecting the smallest load size and using hot water with a full load's detergent so it would be super concentrated. I'd then soak the socks for 30 minutes and would then change the setting to a larger load size so it would add more water so I could add the remainder of the laundry, and then wash the full load, which would then take 25 more minutes MAX!! Forget about pre-soaking with this new machine! If you leave it idle with water in it for more 10 minutes, it automatically drains all the water and detergent out. I now have to wash my husband's socks on the Power Wash setting plus the Deep Fill setting, and it seriously takes 90 minutes!! The socks come out just as clean, but overall it takes 30 minutes longer vs. my old machine. As I said, I just had to give up my old ways and get used to the new machine and the longer wash time as the clothes come out just as clean. My new Maytag dryer also takes 30 minutes longer than my old model. I've just chalked it up to all the energy efficient appliances on the market today. That may be acceptable in Europe, but come on...people in the U.S. want to have more time to do the things they enjoy...and for me, that is NOT doing laundry!!

      Big capacity - agitator is useless

      Posted
      Theolox

      When I first got the washer a few months ago, I was thrilled to have a very large washer with an agitator. Now, I feel like I should have bought a front loader. If I leave the settings to autosense the water level, it doesn't even put in enough water to fully wet my clothes. Even if it does wet me clothes, there isn't enough water to let the clothes move freely as the agitator tries to move them. Normally I hear a higher pitched whirring sound coming from the machine and when I investigate, the agitator is spinning rapidly in the middle of my clothes without moving any of them. It is literally rubbing holes in my clothes. If I choose the deep fill option, the washer fills up with plenty of water, but then the agitator stops moving quickly like it did before and now it moves so slowly that it still doesn't move the clothes around. There is no in between settings. If it let me manually choose the water level, that would be great, but it doesn't. I am not overloading the machine by any means. I am literally washing 2 pair of jeans, 4-5 t-shirts, a few pair of socks and a few pair of underwear. I feel like my clothes aren't getting clean at all. I'm very disappointed.

      Our old washing machine finally died after almost 20 years. Looking at all these new machines was confusing. I read all the reviews on most of the machines and narrowed my options down to either the Maytag washer or LG. I also viewed videos online on youtube. I decided on the Maytag because I do think that the agitator makes the difference in having a more efficient machine and cleaner clothes. With a lot of the newer machines- because they are HE, the water doesn't fill the machine and that was a concern. This Maytag has a deep fill option which made it all the more attractive, since it serves my needs. We've had this machine for about two months now and it runs like a champ. It is quiet and cleans the clothes exceptionally well. I don't find a soap residue on our clothes, like other customers have stated in other reviews. That is a non-issue. We always use liquid detergent and liquid fabric softner. I put in the detergent and softner before I begin washing and the machine does the work without me having to continually check on it. It spins the clothes out extraordinarily well, so much so, that it takes less time for the clothes to dry. The machine does have a deep drum but even at 5 foot 3, I can still manage to reach in and get the clothes off the bottom. I am able to fit my king size comforter and it washes well and still has room left over. I really have nothing negative to say about this washer. After all the research and using it for a while, I have to say it is a great machine and worth the money we spent. I would highly recommend this washer.

      Poor Was Quality

      Posted
      goliath626

      After using this for a month, and trying every setting on this machine, it is impossible to eliminate the white patches on all of our dark clothing, and get the majority of clothes clean. From different brands of soap, to using hardly any soap at all, to extra rinse cycles and deep fill option, nothing fixes this issue. Having to hand rinse and lint roll every dark piece of clothing to eliminate these white patches is ridiculous. The amount of water and energy this machine uses to attempt to clean and rinse clothes is absolutely appalling. What a joke. It is well built, but just doesn't wash well at all. I routinely watch clothes remain on the top of the load during a wash cycle, never being drawn down by the agitator and cleaned. they emerge mostly dry and spotted. Without using deep fill, this machines fills with about 4" inches of water for a full load. My clothes literally are beating together dry and ruining them slowly. I don't care what they say this isn't enough water to wash. They don't even smell clean afterwards. And yes, I have adjusted load sizes, water levels, wash cycles, soap amounts, and spin cycles. Nothing makes it better. Wish I could get my old machine back. So glad the government mandated these low water usage HE appliances. 2-3 times the cycle time, energy and water of my 22 year old washer. Can not and would not recommend this washer.

      Nice Maytag / Whirlpool Agitator Washer

      Let be honest, the washing machines from years ago were much better at cleaning and more durable, but destroyed the clothes. Our recent Front loader was nice, but didn't clean very well and had a long cycle time. Mold Issues were also evident. This Maytag machine has a glass top and electronic controls with an agitator. We have had it for plus six weeks and found it to be better than the LG front load machine in cleaning. So far so good. One bad note is that it is very selfish with water. The over ride option for extra water is nice but it is limited to Full load. Too bad it does not have a 1/2 load setting. Over all this appears to be a good machine with direct drive motor. ( no belts! ) At this point we are satisfied though my wife has a hard time getting clothes out of the deep tub since its up on a pedistall. The sales person @ Best Buy say these sell out fast since its a top loader with an agitator. Consumer reports rates the cleaning not so good compared to the front loaders. Who knows what the truth?. We are happy with this unit so far. Note: Please note that Whirlpool manufactures Maytag machines currently. Good Luck in your purchase!
