    This purchase would be our first front loader. And I've heard alot about the door of the front loaders getting moldy and clothes sometimes getting a mildew smell from the door being wet after the cycle. Is this still a problem?   (4 Answers)

      Answer

      All front loading washer doors must be left open after the cycle so that they can dry out. I haven't had a mildew smell issue, but I can see how it could become a problem. I do try to wipe the extra moisture from around the rubber door gasket. There is a lot of water left in the soap dispenser drawer after the cycle is finished also. I'm not sure why...but have read that it is a problem.

        Answer

        The washer does not come with hoses. I recommend stainless steel ones. Also, if you are going to buy the matching dryer with the steam option, you will need to buy another hose. The dryer comes with a 2' hose that connects to your cold water source and a "Y" splitter (one side connects to your waster and the other to your dryer). The hose that connects to the "Y" splitter and dryer is not provided. Check installation instructions at: http://www.maytag.com/digitalassets/MED5500FW/Installation%20Instruction_EN.pdf

          Yes, you can add for a certain amount of time at the beginning of the cycle. There is a light that will go off when you can no longer add items

              Skivich, the washer door can not be reversed. Hopefully this information is beneficial to you. Thank you for your inquiry regarding our Maytag appliances!

          • Question
            Is there a lot of water that collects on the seal after the wash? I have the new LG and I am thinking of exchanging them for these Maytags because there is a pool of water that even after I wipe, returns within an hour. I know you have to wipe them down.   (1 Answer)

              Answer

              I bought my first compact front load washer when I was 30 years old. I'm on my 3rd one now, and I'm 80 years old. Mine have all gone over 10 years without a service call putting out 3 to 4 loads per week. All have given me 15 to 17 years of service with only one service call after 10 years. I'm now considering my fourth Maytag washer and dryer pair.
