    We did not have to purchase a new washer but we really wanted one of the new whisper quiet models. After lots of research and comparisons we purchased this set and it was the best set ever. Incredible capacity, clothes super clean, uses less water and my favorite is that I can be standing with in 5 feet and cannot hear it on. I love this choice.

    I could not have done better than this. I have never had a Maytag brand and I absolutely love this washer, and the front load which is so much easier to get my clothes out since I am only 5 feet tall. I love the wash and the many features it has. Truly happy with my purchase.

    Results are over-all much better. Plus all cycles are a lot quieter than our old agitator style top loading Maytag.

    Love all the features this washing machine has and I also like how powerful it is. This washing machine cleans better than any washing machine I have ever had or used. The steam and the extra power features are my favorite because you can use one or both to get any stain or smell out of your clothes.

    Get's my clothes clean. What more could I ask for? Lots of different settings to choose from. I especially like the delayed start feature.

    This American made machine is amazing. Our clothes are cleaner than ever. The sanitizing cycles leave everything bright and fresh. The machine produces these results with very little water. The dial -instead of incomprehensible computer commands, makes learning how to use this machine a breeze.

    It does take a little longer than a top loading to wash, but I read standard with and my first front loading machine. But the clothes come out very clean, less time to dry due to a better spin cycle. I have had issues in the past where a tide pod or other detergent has not always rinsed out in a top loader leaving traces on the clothes and having to rinse again. No issue with that on this one. Had less than a month, but works great so far! If my laundry room shelves would have permitted the pedestals would have been tempting it is a little bit of bending, but no less than a dryer I suppose. I was told moisture can collect at the seals and mildew in front loaders. I have not noticed this at all but have kept door open sometimes to let thoroughly dry just in case. I will say this. A top loader if anyone noticed at the top of the basket and inside has way more issues of collecting soap, funk, mold, harder to clean etc. So I do not find this an issue at all. As for price, on par or less than some high end top loaders as well. Very happy with the purchase.

    So this was my second washer after I had to return a damaged Whirlpool. I'm going to break this down into pros and cons. Pros: It has a huge capacity It looks beautiful It's pretty quiet Clothes are fresh and cleaner than my previous whirlpool model. Cons: the doors are super light and border on feeling cheap compared to the much sturdier feel of the Whirlpool frontloader.That being said my whirlpool had a lot of weird glitches , this has not. The 3 second countdown to start the thing gets old quick! The delay wash doesn't work. . the washer times out before the countdown is done. . which means you may wake up to dirty clothes in the morning. Not a con but, but a very useful note. The drain!!! If you are in a home built before 2005. . your drain connection may be at the bottom in your home. The connection for this machine is at the top! Meaning if you may need to get a drain extender to have this set up how you would like. For me my stackable became a side by side which sucks. If you know this in advance it's fine. Unfortunately I didnt get this info until delivery and set up. Bottom Line: A few annoying quirks, but it washes like it should. And hold a massive amount of clothing.You have no doubt your clothes are clean when it's done. I strongly reccomend you go to the store and press the buttons and mess with the doors before you purchase. Time will tell how this holds up, but the reputation of the brand makes this feel like a very sound purchase.

    Update from a Maytag 9000 series

    Posted

    I got this washer, because my Maytag 9000 series was out of warranty. Nothing was wrong with it, just wanted a new one Incase it broke down. My family has always purchased Maytag washers. I refused to break the tradition. When the first one arrived, (yes I had to send the first one back) it wasn't leveled properly. After having Best Buy fix it, I felt everything was a go. The delivery guys might have banged the appliance upon delivery. For when I went to do a wash, it got stuck in spin cycle for almost 12 mins. The machine produced a funny smell. Like something was burning. Keep in mind, this was spinning on high for 12 mins consecutively! I called up Best Buy, with no hassle, it was replaced in 2 days. Now that it's all leveled, this machine works pretty good. My Maytag 9000 series was a 4.3 with a lot of features. This model does have some good features as well. The extra power button, really washes your clothes GREAT! It works on any cycle. I really like how it senses the weight. This model uses more water than the 9000 series, but still doesn't over do it. The machine is fairly quiet. You only know it's on, when it's filling up with water. The spin cycle is really really quiet. Im a little puzzled if this machine has Max Extract Spin. You can't tell, because it's so quiet! If it doesn't, I'll be in total shock. My old machine had max extract and didn't get water out of the clothes the way this machine does. I absolutely love how it gets the clothes fully wet, before dispensing the soap!! You really get a descent lather. I do have some dislikes. 1. The fresh hold feature doesn't work the way the 9000 model does. The older model would let you pause the fresh hold feature incase you only wanted to take a few items out at a time. This model stops as soon as you open the door or stop the machine. 2. No soak cycle 3. The drain house is at the bottom of the machine. Which means you're probably going to need an attachment house. 3. The door is tinted black and plastic. Not what I expected. 4. No Powerwash But to be completely honest, those dislikes won't make this machine unbearable or any less desirable. This machine thus fare is living up to the Maytag legacy. I'll do an update in a year, or sooner if something goes wrong. I honestly doubt this machine will give me problems. My family has used Maytag washers since the 30's. No one has ever returned them yet. And no, I'm not a Maytag employee. I just love when a brand makes a product that WORKS!
