Product Reviews
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 107 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saves water and detergent I especially love the way that the clothes are nearly dry by the time the final spin cycle is complete. 10/3/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my new Maytag washer and dryer. The appliances run so quietly. There is no soap residue. The washer has so many choices of the way one wants to wash clothes. The dryer senses when clothes are dry, and it takes so little time to dry a load. The front load washer does not leak water onto the floor when the door is opened. If too much soap is placed in the washer, there is a warning, and I can wash through another cycle without soap to rinse the clothes completely. What wonderful products! Cleaning both the washer and dryer is easy. I use the Affresh pill once a month on the washer, and the drum sparkles and smells clean. The dryer also cleans easily. 10/3/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is fast and efficient. My normal load takes 59 minutes and does a great job. It is very efficient and cost effective. I also love the quietness, since I live in a condo on the third floor and no one under me can hear the washer going during night time hours. 10/13/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by My old machine was a constant irritant; this one is a constant joy Our old machine shook so bad that anything on top of the washer got knocked off. Our new machines greet us with a pleasant chime is easily to program and is so quiet that the first time I did a load I had to double-check to make sure it was actually running. 10/13/13
