    Update from a Maytag 9000 series

    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!

    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.

    The washer seems to work well after a few weeks. the controls are easy to use and there are good wash cycle options. First time having a front loader. The only issue is the height when loading. It is a little low and uncomfortable to get to. So far so good.

    I love the look of this washer! The color is beautiful! It holds an enormous amount of laundry, which is always good! The only bad thing is that it sits really low and the pedestal is expensive.
